PLACERVILLE, CA - Family members of slain principal Sam LaCara spoke publicly for the first time Friday about their loss.
Two brothers-in-law of the Louisiana Schnell School administrator said LaCara was the type of person who when you met him, you knew right away you would be friends.
The men said LaCara had sent his wife Lisa an e-mail just an hour before he was shot to death in his school office Wednesday, saying he loved her.
The victim's wife and three daughters were taking the death very hard.
"His wife was just devastated ... she was just crushed," said brother-in-law Guy Clark.
