1 Mins read

Tragic Discovery

On April 22, a heartbreaking scene unfolded in an Oklahoma home as a 10-year-old child woke up to find the lifeless bodies of five family members. Authorities in Oklahoma City revealed that the child, the lone survivor of a devastating murder-suicide, promptly dialed 911 after making the grim discovery on that fateful morning.

Unfolding Events

During a press conference, officials disclosed that they received the distress call at 9:35 a.m. local time, with the young caller noting that “everyone inside the home appeared to be dead.” Subsequent investigations unveiled a harrowing sequence of events that transpired “sometime overnight.” Jonathon Candy, 42, the father, engaged in a fatal altercation with his wife, Lindsay Candy, 39, before turning the firearm on their children. The victims included Dylan Candy, 18, Ethan Candy, 14, and Lucas Candy, 12.

Police Response and Ongoing Investigations

In response to the 911 call, officers swiftly arrived at the residence on Mirage St., where they confirmed the tragic deaths. “All five had been shot to death,” authorities stated in a press release following the incident. Notably, there were no prior calls to the residence concerning domestic abuse, leaving investigators puzzled about the sudden violence within the family.

Authorities are now reaching out to friends and relatives for any possible insights into the motive behind the murders. “It remains a mystery as to what caused Mr. Candy to murder his wife and three of his children,” officials remarked, urging anyone with pertinent information to contact the Homicide Tip Line.

A Child’s Fate

Despite the tragic loss of life, there was a glimmer of hope as the 10-year-old child, miraculously unharmed, is now under the care of a relative. As investigators delve deeper into this heartbreaking incident, the community remains in shock and mourning over the lives lost in this senseless tragedy.
