A man from White Plains, Alabama allegedly shot his son, daughter and his daughter’s fiancé to death on Thursday before turning the gun on himself. According to the Associated Press, Anthony Wayne Parker, 49, shot his 12-year-old son and his 19-year-old daughter Heather Parker. He also allegedly murdered Heather’s husband-to-be, 20-year-old Brandon Roberts.
Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade told WHNT that after allegedly killing those three, Anthony called his sister to announce that he was also going to kill himself. According to the Associated Press, his sister called 911. When responding deputies got to Anthony’s home, they found the three victims in the front yard. Police found Anthony’s body not long after in front of an abandoned store, reported Alabama.com.
“We pulled the coordinates of the origin of the 911 call and traced it back to the Rabbittown store,” Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade told The Anniston Star.
