The man suspected of shooting his wife and her two children was found dead.
In St. Louis County, Bobby McCulley III killed himself on Friday after he was wanted in a homicide involving his own family, per St. Louis Post Dispatch.
McCulley had filed for a divorce from his wife Roseann Williams McCulley, 34, just five days before he shot and killed her and her two children, Kayden Johnson, 13, and Kaylee Brooks, 6, she had from a previous relationship.
According to the police reports, he held the victims against their will for hours before shooting them dead at the St. Louis residential address. His wife and her children were living at the home.
McCulley then fled the scene with the couple’s 1-year-old daughter Zoe. He dropped the baby off with relatives, safe and sound.
Officers had found the bodies around 11:30 p.m. on Thursday after neighbors reported hearing gunshots. The Missouri Highway Patrol issued an AMBER Alert for the baby once they discovered she was missing.
On Friday, Bobby McCulley’s mother, Michelle Clayton, 55, was arrested for misleading investigators while trying to find her son. She is being held on a $25,000 cash-only bond.
Before he shot himself, he was charged with “first-degree murder, three counts of kidnapping, on count of burglary, and seven counts of armed criminal action.”
This story is horrible and tough to write about. Prayers go out to family of the victims.
