Does Murder Run in the Family? Porn King's Son Arrested

200px-behindthegreendoorThe other night while I was watching TV,  there was an Amber Alert interruption of the all local programming.  The odd thing about this Northern California alert was the amount of detail included – a man was being sought for kidnapping his one-year-old daughter and for killing the mother with a baseball bat. Authorities had the suspect’s name and the make, model and license number of the getaway car. The info about being on the look out for the suspect was all well and good, but the manner of how the mother was killed being included was alarming…especially in the middle of watching Bridezilla (yeah, I know…it’s a guilty pleasure).

Now the story gets interesting. The murder/kidnapping suspect? James Mitchell. He is the son of Jim Mitchell of the notorious adult entertainment empire The Mitchell Brothers and the director of the ‘porn classic’ “Behind the Green Door”. The same Jim Mitchell who had killed his own brother/business partner when James was just eight-years-old.

With a restraining order issued by his ex-girlfriend Danielle Keller, James went to her mother’s house and allegedly murdered her in the backyard. He then fled with their crying one-year-old daughter Samantha – who had just been celebrating her first birthday party at the home. They were found about five hours later outside of Sacramento, California.

This begs the question, when a parent kills someone close to them does the offspring perhaps subconsciously see this as an option? Two generations committing murder – in what seems like a crime of passion -  is rare. But how much does a life event such as your dad killing your uncle affect the rest of your life and perhaps your moral scale? Coincidence? I think not.
