Father, Grandfather: 'It's Just Indescribable Evil'

SPOKANE, Wash. - Tracy Ader's father Mike wasn't surprised when police told him Dustin Gilman was the suspect they were looking for in the murder of his daughter and grand kids. Gilman lived with his daughter's family but he never thought he could something like this.

Going through family pictures, Mike Bates told stories about his grandsons to KHQ Monday night. Stories that are now memories.

On Friday his daughter Tracy and his two grandsons, Damien and Kaden were killed by a person, he says they were just trying to help.

The Adder family took in Gilman just a few months ago, giving the troubled 22 year old a place to stay while he tried to get back on his feet.

Mike says that's just the kind of person his daughter was: A giving woman that grew into a wonderful mother who would do anything to help someone.

Gilman was found dead Monday just a few miles where he is suspected of taking the lives of the family he was living with.

Mike says what happened to his family an indescribable evil that no one will ever be able to explain and doesn't think there will ever truly be closure after such a tragic event but finding out what his daughter and grandsons meant to those that knew them will keep their memories alive.

Mike says most important thing to him was the time he was able to spend with them before they were taken and knowing they're all together right now in heaven.
