Divorced Dad Kills 3 Sons, Then Himself

Compiled From Wire Services

A father shot his three young sons to death Saturday, then turned a gun on himself, police said.

Officers found the body of Kevin Dale Fox, 32, near the doorway of his home early Saturday, said police spokesman Pete Walker.

Fox’s sons, Cody, 11, Cory, 10, and Caleb, 8, were found shot to death in the bedrooms of the house, police said. “We’re treating it as a homicide-suicide,” Walker said.

Although no suicide note was found, Walker said Fox’s divorce from the boys’ mother had recently become final.
