After the horrific crime, the mother of the murdered wife said that her daughter had married a monster.
The authorities in Oklahoma, USA (south) announced on Wednesday that the seven bodies they found during their search for two girls who were last seen with a convicted rape person were found to belong to these three, the man’s wife and her three children, and it is likely that he had shot them all and committed suicide.
Okmulgee County Sheriff Joe Prentice told reporters that the evidence indicated that “Jesse McFadden killed six people and then committed suicide.” He added, “I don’t know what he was thinking, whether he did what he did premeditatedly, and if so, since when” he began planning his crime.
The police chief explained that the seven dead were in addition to McFadden, 39, his wife, Holly Jess McFadden, 35, their three children, aged 13 and 17, and the two missing teenage girls, aged 14 and 16, who were friends of the family.
According to local TV channel Fox 23, the two girls went to the McFadden family home to spend the night there. The police chief confirmed that all seven bodies had been killed by at least one shot to the head.
The seven bodies were found Monday in Henrietta, a small town located in the rural state of Oklahoma in the southern United States.
On Tuesday, Janet May, Holly Jess Macfadyen’s mother, said her daughter had married a “monster”. And she wrote on Facebook, “My daughter loved her children, and yes, she married the man who killed them, but his magic deceived her.”
McFadden was convicted of rape in 2003, and he was also pursued on other new charges related to his previous crime.
McFadden was supposed to appear Monday in a Muskogee County court to face charges that include “child pornography and attempted solicitation of sexual conduct or communication with a minor using technology.”
But McFadden failed to appear in court on Monday morning, and a warrant was issued for his arrest and police raided his home, according to local media.
