Pennsylvania Family Found Dead –The statements made by the police on Friday indicate that a devout Christian family of three that was discovered shot to death in their Pennsylvania backyard last week took turns shooting each other as part of a murder-suicide pact they made several months earlier. The bodies were found in the backyard of the home. The West Manchester Township Police Department stated in a release that Morgan Daub, 26, and her parents, James Daub, 62, and Deborah Daub, 59, all left detailed notes explaining why they made the “joint decision” to end their lives together on January 24.
James and Deborah Daub were Morgan’s mother and father, respectively. After Morgan disclosed to her parents that she intended to end her life by taking her own life, this decision was arrived at as a result. In addition, James and Deborah Daub have left behind extensive notes. The bodies of the three people were discovered by police at their home in York on the morning of January 25, shortly after officers were called to check on the wellbeing of the occupants of the home.
A neighbor called the police to report that just minutes before the clock struck midnight, he heard three shots fired in quick succession from a gun. The family is said to have forgotten a number of written documents that provided specifics about their journey and dated back at least nine months, as reported by the police. According to the papers that Deborah wrote, the initial plan that she and Morgan had was to kill themselves together and leave James behind after they were done.
The papers were written by Deborah. In a note that she dated April 2022, she writes that Morgan chose the date of their execution based on a bible verse that depicts two parents handing over their child to God. The verse is about two parents handing over their child. This verse can be found in Proverbs chapter 24 verse 15.
