A devout Catholic mother, her 11-year-old son and nine-year-old daughter have been found shot dead in their home in what police suspect was a murder-suicide - while her businessman husband read downstairs.Officers arrived at the large house in the affluent suburb of Glendale, Missouri after 11 a.m on Monday and found the bodies of Cathy Murch and her children in different parts of the home.
Investigators believe Mrs Murch shot her children before turning the gun on herself, Glendale police Sgt. Bob Catlett said.
People close to the family said the parents were devoted to their children and the Catholic Church, and that the mother never showed signs of mental illness.
