GOSHEN — The December deaths of a northern Indiana man and his two teenager daughters found fatally shot in a home have been ruled a murder-suicide, prosecutors said.
Evidence showed that Jeffrey Marvin, 47, fatally shot his daughters — Lexis, 18, and Haley, 15 — and then himself several days before their bodies were found Dec. 18 in an Elkhart County home.
Elkhart County officers were dispatched to the home, located between Elkhart and Goshen, on Dec. 18 for a welfare check after no one had heard from Marvin or his daughters for several days.
A formal investigation conducted by the Elkhart County Homicide Unit determined that Marvin “had a motive, and did kill his two daughters" before he then took his own life, according to the Elkhart County prosecutor’s office.
Marvin’s daughters attended Concord High School and he shared custody of the teens with his ex-wife.
The prosecutor’s office in a news release that no additional details would be released out of respect for the family’s privacy.
The three deaths will not result in any charges, prosecutors said, and there is no evidence to suggest anyone else was involved in the deaths or knew about them beforehand.
