Tragic: Parents, Three Young Children Found Shot to Death in Delaware Home

A boy found two adults and their three children dead inside a Delaware home where he was supposed to stay Monday night. “A neighbor said she watched him get out of a red truck, go inside the house and then rush right back out, so apparently he had to have found them ’cause no one else was around,” neighbor Alisha Garvin told CBS Philadephia. Family members and neighbors identified the dead, whom police said were shot, as 42-year-old Matthew Edwards, his 41-year-old wife, Julie Edwards, and their children Brinley, Jacob, and Paxton, NBC Philadelphia reports. The oldest child was 8. A neighbor said Matthew Edwards had recently lost his job and was having marital problems. Neighbors said he often played outside with the children. Police have not said what caused the shooting.
