The Late Joseph Stack's Ex-Wife Offers "Sincerest Sympathy" to Families of IRS Victims

Last week, Sheryl Stack, former wife of the late Joseph Stack (the anti-government pilot who drove his plane into the IRS office building Echelon I in Austin, Texas a day before then) offered her "sincerest sympathy" to the families of the IRS victims who were killed in the attack.

According to, Stack said:

The wife of a software engineer who crashed his plane into an office building that held more than 200 federal tax agency employees said she is sorry for everyone affected by the tragedy, The Associated Press quoted a family spokesperson.

Rayford Walker said he's a spokesman for Joseph Stack's family. He read a statement from Stack's wife, Sheryl Stack, while standing in front of a house across the street from the Stack home. The Stack home was set on fire Thursday before Joseph Stack crashed his plane into the building.

In the statement, Sheryl Stack thanks her friends and family and offers her "sincerest sympathy" for the victims and their families. She also says she won't comment further. [Emphasis added.]

It's interesting that she refused to "comment further" on the attacks. She could have provided more insight into Stack's state of mind, let alone her view of his suicide note that he published on his website.

More thoughts on this incident either tomorrow or Friday.
