Murder-suicide... but no mention of blood amongst any of them. Perhaps that info is being held?

News today says the murder suicides were planned.

Very sad.

If you're a miserable individual there's no reason to take your spouse and children out with you.

Quote:
Collins did not disclose what the parents wrote that led police to determine both of them planned the murder-suicide.

The couple was facing financial difficulties, Collins said without elaborating.

They owned a tow truck business, Lightning Towing and Transport. The company's business license with the city of San Diego was due to expire May 31.

“We have writings found in the home from each of the parents,” police Capt. Jim Collins told the paper. “This event was probably planned by both of them. What role each played we are still trying to determine.”

Since the current financial problems, we have been hearing about these issues more and more. NYC has had quite a few of these tragedies in the past year. Very Sad.

Suicide is also murder, no matter how you look at it.

I recall, last year, an executive at one of our casino hotels here went home and blew his head off. Left behind a wife and two kids. And he could have very well have killed them as well, but he didn't. I suspect these people go into a black-out, and have no idea of what they're doing.

He was hired to turn one of our casino hotels around here during the Great Recession. The earnings report hit the newspaper the day after he killed himself, and reported a great loss.

Another murder/suicide in the San Diego area, apparently again as a result of the stress of financial loss. This is horrible. At least during the Depression, when people jumped off buildings to their deaths, they didn't take their whole families with them.
