Deputies discover two children and adult dead in home; murder-suicide suspected

Posted: Updated:

Brent Pendrak is struggling with the news that one of his neighbors and that neighbors two children are dead, the result of what authorities are calling a murder-suicide.

"It sounds trite, but there are really no words. I don't know what to say, I am two doors down from this happening. It's scary. I don't know what words to use," said Pendrak.

Carroll County Sheriff's deputies went to the home after the male victim hadn't been to work in several days. They discovered the bodies after forcing their way into the home.

"My kids are devastated. They rode the bus with their kids. They are really good people. I never thought that would happen," said Rod Montgomery, who lives nearby.

Investigators said the wife and mother of the victims have been out of town for two weeks. Some neighbors said the couple had problems.

"I think all the neighbors around here heard a lot of arguing going on coming out of the house and a couple of weeks ago the sheriff's deputies were called, I believe by the wife's sister, to come out and do a welfare check," said Pendrak.

Deputies confirm a simple assault report was filed in connection to a welfare call. Investigators have not released the names or ages of the victims.
