HENRY COUNTY, Ind. (WTHR) — A law enforcement source confirms three people are dead after a father killed his wife and daughter before turning the gun on himself in a double murder-suicide.

The coroner's office said Justin Langdon, Amanda Langdon and 8-year-old Kendall Langdon were the family members involved.

It happened in the 2400 block of North Mechanicsburg Road around 10:30 Thursday night near the town of Shirley.

The sheriff did not confirm whether police were present when the man allegedly killed himself.

“This is the second one of these cases where children are taken," McCorkle said, "and I don’t understand why the innocent had to die. It breaks your heart for those of us who are parents and grandparents it’s tough. It’s a tough case.”

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
