Shocking details emerge after a church family of three is found dead in their backyard after a tragic suicide pact
REQUIRING information has emerged about the family of three found dead after an alleged suicide pact.
A mother, father and their 26-year-old daughter have died in the yard of their suburban home.
Police said notes they discovered at a Pennsylvania residence where three family members died from gunshot wounds pointed to a murder-suicide, NBC reported.
The relatives – James Daub, 62, Deborah Daub, 59, and their daughter Morgan – died on January 25, 2022 from gunshot wounds on the floor of their farm and were reportedly discovered by authorities during a health check.
West Manchester Township PD said the notes suggest the family had come to a “common decision” to die together.
Law enforcement concluded that Deborah likely shot James, then Morgan shot her mother.
With both of her parents dead, police suspect Morgan completed the pact in a third act of violence, ending her own life.
Deborah reportedly wrote in a letter signed Jan. 19 that she and Morgan were going to kill each other, at least in part due to an “evil that has spread against Morgan,” Detective Timothy Fink told NBC.
James and Morgan reportedly had their own notes focused on confirming the shootings they would conduct and arrangements for their dog and estate.
The investigation found no evidence of foul play and was therefore closed, the outlet said.
Deborah and Morgan were both avid bowlers, loved by the local community, who were shocked by the horrifying news.
Morgan was described as “very gentle and quiet” by Bret Stabley, a professional store owner at Bowlers Supply in York, Pennsylvania.
He also noted that she was “very smart” and “a pretty good bowler.”
According to Stabley, the openly religious and political family of Christians “was never shy about letting anyone know what their faith was.”
When he met them around the time of the 2020 election, they were reportedly “just so hellbent on Trump winning, like he might end up doing it.” he doesn’t,” and Stabley never saw the two again after that incident.
He also admitted to seeing “haunting” videos of a girl who appears to be Morgan delivering incoherent tirades about Trump conspiracies, God and the Antichrist.
“I’ve never, ever seen Morgan in that condition,” Stabily said.
Aside from the notes, evidence at the scene suggested homicide was the likely cause of death.
The way the bodies were laid, the guns in the house and even shell casings “support the account put forward by the written documents left by the family,” police said.
“All three family members have decided to end their lives on January 24, 2023,” the authorities said.
