An unemployed financial advisor apparently despondent over his situation shot and killed his wife, his mother-in-law and three children before taking his own life in a gated community in Porter Ranch in the northwest San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles police said today.
Moore said police believe that the gunman killed them sometime after 6 p.m. Saturday, and said he left behind three letters indicating that he had carried out the killings. He said the gunman had worked previously for Price Waterhouse and Sony Pictures and "had attested to some financial difficulties," he said. "He had become despondent over his financial" situation.
It certainly sounds like a case of Greenspan's Body Count. We'll keep you updated as details come out.
