From The Globe and Mail:
A father apparently distraught over job problems shot and killed his wife and five young children and then committed suicide at their home Tuesday, police said. The victims included two sets of twins.
The bodies were found when police responded to a report of a shooting in progress in the Wilmington area shortly before 8:30 a.m., Officer Sam Park said. The bodies were found throughout the family’s house.
The victims were not immediately identified.
Deputy Chief Kenneth Garner said the man killed his wife, an 8-year-old girl, twin 5-year-old daughters and twin 2-year-old sons. He then killed himself.
“He was despondent, clearly, over his job situation,” Deputy Chief Garner said. [more]
Ah well, that explains it then. The guy lost his job and killed his wife and children … makes sense, doesn’t it? I know it won’t happen in my lifetime, but it will be a great thing when reporters actually start to make some sense. When’s the last time you heard of a woman losing her job and killing her husband and family?
