Family of five were found dead with gunshot wounds in an apparent murder suicide in a Massachusetts home Monday, authorities said.
The Patriot Ledger reported that Police confirmed that Deirdre Zaccardi, 40, was found first by the family member, who immediately dialled 911.
The other victims, 11-year-old Alexis Zaccardi, nine-year-old twins Nathaniel and Kathryn Zaccardi and their father Joseph Zaccardi, 43, were found at another location inside the home.
