Tampa Bay Rays prospect Blake Bivens lost his wife, son, mother-in-law and even his dog — a chilling video shows the moment of the arrest.
A Virginia baseball player's family was murdered on Tuesday — and his teenage brother-in-law has been charged for the triple killing.
Blake Bivens, a 24-year-old MLB pitching prospect, learned that his wife Emily, their infant son Cullen, his mother-in-law Joan Bernard and even his pet dog had been slain, and that Emily's 19-year-old brother Matthew Bernard was the suspected killer.
Chilling video, captured by ABC13 News, showed the moment of the arrest, as a crazed and naked Bernard ran at police, and even attacked and choked a bystander.
He added the only explanation he could think of was that Matthew had expressed to his mother last week that he was having bad dreams.
Bivens was due to play a double header with the Biscuits on Tuesday, which has since been cancelled.
"Earlier today we learned that Blake Bivens, a pitcher with our Double-A affiliate, the Montgomery Biscuits, suffered a terrible family tragedy in southern Virginia," the Rays said in a statement.
"Our hearts are broken for Blake. We are grieving with him and will support him any way we can. We ask that everyone respect the privacy of the Bivens family and the Biscuits family during this extremely difficult time."
