In what has become an all-too-common occurrence in the middle of this global financial turmoil, an Orlando, Florida man has apparently killed his entire family, as well as himself, in a desperate attempt to free them all from the grip of severe financial troubles. John Wood, 41, appears to have shot his wife Cynthia, 40, and their two children, ages 10 and 12, before turning the gun on himself. Details are still emerging, but those that have seen the light of day thus far include things like bankruptcy troubles, $85,000 in credit card debt, lost jobs, and general financial calamity.
Unfortunately, we’re also learning that in the face of these difficulties, mom and dad seemed disinclined to apply any brakes. The bodies were discovered by a housekeeper, begging the question why someone in such a dreadful bind still had a housekeeper. There’s more, including well-known weekly shopping trips to the mall, and even a recent trip to Las Vegas wherein John and Cynthia allegedly lost $2500 while gambling.
