Pennsylvania police say that a family of three people found shot to death had made a suicide pact with each other.
West Manchester Township police said in a press release that they were called at about 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday to a home on Loman Drive in the town of York, which lies south of Harrisburg.
Neighbors called the police after seeing lights at the home left on all night and then seeing what appeared to be bodies under a tarp in the backyard.
On Thursday, the York County Coroner said that the incident had been a planned homicide and suicide. The coroner’s report said the three people had pre-planned their deaths.
According to the report, 59-year-old Deborah Daub and her husband 62-year-old James Daub died as a result of homicide, while their 26-year-old daughter Morgan Daub died by suicide.
Police believe Morgan Daub shot each of her parents in the head and then killed herself with a gunshot wound to the head.
“We want to make sure the public knows that there is no present danger,” police said in a statement.
Neighbors told WHP-TV that the family had recently moved into the home and that they mostly kept to themselves.
WHP reported that a person identifying herself as Morgan Daub posted a bizarre video on social media expressing extreme views. A neighbor confirmed that the woman in the video looked like her deceased neighbor.
Daub says in the video that she is abdicating the throne of England and refused to be crowned the queen. A second video published from the same account on Tuesday read simply, “Follow me as I follow Christ.” A third video accused former President Donald Trump of spying on her and her family.
Police are still investigating but said no charges will be filed.
