Estranged Husband Slaughters Wife, Daughter, Male Friend and Self Days Before Divorce Hearing

Posted: November 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

A man apparently killed his estranged wife, their teenage daughter and a male friend Tuesday at a north Phoenix home before killing himself, police said.

Police found the woman’s body burned in the home’s backyard. The daughter’s body was found inside the home, and the male victim was found shot in the front yard, Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump said.

Police eventually found the suspect’s body in a nearby alley and believe he shot himself.

The names of the suspect and the victims have not been released.

Neighbors called police at about 4 p.m. Tuesday after hearing gunshots, and dispatchers could hear gunfire in the background of the 911 calls, Crump told reporters.
