NORTH CODORUS MURDER-SUICIDE: David Witte and wife Holly Witte, 41, were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in their home in the 1900 block of Stoverstown Road, in North Codorus, PA. Southwestern Regional Police Chief Gregory Bean said the incident started when David Witte, 42, called a family member at about 4:30 p.m. saying he was home and about to kill himself and his wife, York Daily Record reports.
David Witte then hung up the phone, and the family member went to the house to find the couple was already dead, Bean said. The Wittes’ 7-year-old son was not at home at the time of the shootings, Bean added.
So far, the investigation leads police to believe David Witte killed his wife and then self, and the reason appears to be “marital discord,” Bean said. Source: YDR
David Witte had little regard for himself, much less his wife and seven year old who is now left without a mother and father. The cases of murder-suicides continue unchecked. What’s going on?
