A tragic weekend. An alleged “murder-suicide” at a home in Gleneagle, Colorado, left two children and two adults dead. The neighborhood was in shock after police made the discovery on Saturday, the newspaper The Sun reported on Monday, November 1.

Two children and two adults were found dead inside the property in what appears to be a murder-suicide, the official also told local newspaper The Gazette, in Colorado Springs. The identities of the victims have not been released and their ages remain unknown at this time.

“We have never had something like this here,” said a neighbor to Fox 31. Another equally disturbed bystander mentioned: “We have to remain together as a community and work together” in this difficult moment arising from the family tragedy involving two young children.

The Sun reported that first responders from El Paso County, Monument and Palmer Lake traveled to the site of the apparent murder-suicide after receiving a phone call at around 10 a.m. Saturday morning. The caller was requesting their help on the property because a person had been wounded.

At the time, residents of the neighborhood were asked to take shelter in their homes and close their doors and windows for security reasons. The order was lifted hours later after police found that there was no longer a threat to the community.

The Sun indicated that a resident, known only as Joe, upon hearing the sirens thought at first that they were firefighters. Then, he saw a black armored vehicle carrying personnel from the El Paso Sheriff’s Office tactical support unit. “It seemed as if they were invading us,” he told The Gazette in amazement.

Fox 31 also reported that until Sunday night the identities of the deceased had not yet been made public. They added that a close friend of the family, who did not want to appear on camera had said that he fears that no one will ever know what really happened in that house. He said he knew the family and thought they were “very good people”.

Another neighbor, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Gazette that he noticed the change in atmosphere during the first hour and a half sheriff’s deputies were on the scene. At first the agents were investigating the site, he said, but then the tactical support unit arrived, with helmets, vests and rifles. Anyone with information about the apparent murder-suicide case in Colorado should call the sheriff’s office phone line at 719-520-6666. The investigation is still active.
