    Rex Farrance was a popular senior editor at PC World magazine in San Francisco, a physical-fitness buff and a family man known for his enthusiasm for life and his sensitivity to others, friends say.

    But according to police, Farrance, 59, was involved with illegal drugs and possibly dealing them along with his wife at their Pittsburg home. The activity, police said Wednesday, led to a home-invasion robbery Tuesday night in which Farrance was killed and his wife, a registered nurse, was pistol-whipped.

    However, Farrance's son, Sterling Farrance, 19, blasted the police assertion that his parents were involved with illegal drugs in any way. Sterling Farrance told The Chronicle on Wednesday night that he grew and stored medical marijuana at his parents' home with his father's permission.
    At about 9 p.m. Tuesday, four masked men burst into the Farrance home on Argosy Court, a usually tranquil cul-de-sac near an elementary school. They fatally shot Rex Farrance in the chest and hit his wife in the head with a gun, Pittsburg police Inspector John Conaty said.

    Jiminy Christmas, what the fuck is going on with all of the computer whizzes and writers? If they are not dying of exposure trying to find help for their family, they are accused of selling drugs and being shot.
