Chason's mother told News 13, her son is remorseful about his wife's killing.In fact she says her son doesn't really know what happened, but she seemed to indicate the family knows Chason is responsible for Crystal's death, but offered this explanation.Nancy Glisson, Mack Glisson's mother, "he was diagnosed with bipolar PTSD and was on medication and went off it."Crystal's family declined to go on camera, they did give us a written statement:
"The family of Crystal wishes to express their thanks to family, friends and the Buncombe County community in their tremendous support during this tragic time. Crystal was a beautiful and loving mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin, niece and friend. Her children meant everything to her.
