James was home-schooled, and his neighbors say his family “kept to themselves” and were rarely seen, not allowed outside to play. Kathleen, his older sister, went to a private school. Their father was a retired police officer; their mother was a firefighter.
James and Kathleen’s father shot them as they slept in their beds; then he committed suicide. Their mother, who was not home at the time, came home to find their bodies.
