Police said the woman told investigators that she and her husband had been having marital problems for months and that her husband had made threats before, though nothing as serious.
The woman told authorities that her husband had guns in the home. When officers arrived at the house, they tapped on windows, knocked on the doors, and called the girls’ cell phones, but got no response, KTUL reported.
At that point, police asked the woman to come to the home, according to Captain Todd Enzbrenner.
When she arrived, she gave officers permission to enter the house, Fox 23 TV reported.
Investigators then entered the home and found the man and the couple’s two young daughters dead. They also found a handgun, according to police.
Along with the father, David Kaser, police found 19-year-old Clarissa Kaser and 14-year-old Crystal “Grey” Kaser deceased.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is assisting local law enforcement agencies with the probe.
Second murder suicide in Sand Springs in just over a week
The murder-suicide took place less than a mile away from a similar incident involving a family just over a week ago.
Phillip Daniel Stephen Ross, 31, fatally stabbed his two young children and their mother before killing himself either late on January 29 or in the early morning hours of January 30, according to police.
Anastacia ‘Staci’ Lynn Smith, 41; River Gale Ross, 4; and Piper Ann Ross, 2, died of sharp-force injuries. Investigators said they were confident that the father’s wounds were self-inflicted.
Enzbrenner said that Ross had a history of domestic violence, though none of the complaints made against him appear to have resulted in any convictions.
