Murder-Suicide In Defiance

An inves­ti­ga­tion in Defi­ance County is under­way today into an appar­ent murder-suicide involv­ing four peo­ple.

Defi­ance County Sher­iff David Westrick released infor­ma­tion that says offi­cers were called to the Robert Garza res­i­dence on Bow­man Road last night around 8:30 after three adults and a juve­nile were found dead inside that home.

Offi­cials say a fam­ily mem­ber stopped by to check on them, and dis­cov­ered his mother, father, sis­ter, and a niece all dead.

Inves­ti­ga­tors are now look­ing at it as a triple-murder and sui­cide.

The bod­ies of Robert Garza Sr.; his wife, Chris­tine; his daugh­ter, Zoila Garza and grand­daugh­ter, Rebecca Garza were all found in the house.

Now, inves­ti­ga­tors believe that Robert Garza Sr was respon­si­ble for the deaths.

Inves­ti­ga­tors will not say how the fam­ily died, only that they all died in the same way and not all the vic­tims were found in the same room of the house.

The case remains under inves­ti­ga­tion today, with more details to be released as that inves­ti­ga­tion progresses.
