The American dream is becoming an American nightmare…
An Ohio woman and her family facing eviction shot dead her thrash metal singer husband, 13 year old son and 74 year old father before turning the gun on herself. Surviving the onslaught was the woman’s 20 year old daughter who was shot at the family home as cops were en route to serve eviction papers.
According to the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office, Theresa Cain, 46, fatally shot her husband, Steven Cain, 50; the couple’s son, Ethan Cain, 13; and her father, William Felton, 74, on Monday, at the family’s Ohio Township, Ohio, home.
Remaining in critical condition was Samantha Cain, the shooter’s 20 year old daughter, WLWT reported.
According to a news release, deputies arrived at the Cain’s home Monday to attempt to serve an eviction notice. As they approached the door, multiple gunshots were heard coming from inside the residence, the notice read.
Upon entry, authorities located four people dead from gunshot wounds. A fifth gunshot victim, later identified as Samantha, was still alive and was transported to an area hospital, WCPO reported.
In a statement posted on the school district’s website, New Richmond Superintendent Tracey Miller wrote, ‘We are stunned and saddened by the loss of Ethan Cain. Ethan was loved by students and staff alike and his loss leaves a tremendous hole in the heart of our district and our community.’
‘We ask you to keep Ethan’s sister, a recent New Richmond High School graduate, Samantha Cain, in your thoughts as well. The entire New Richmond community is behind her in this fight,’ the statement continued.
Not immediately clear is what led to the murder suicide nor how much in arrears the family was in on their rent and how long they had lived at the residence and what remedies, if any, were exhausted prior to Monday’s dramatic action.
