The only person alive from the murder-suicide that claimed the lives of his whole family is a 10-year-old boy.

When the youngster awoke, his father—who is said to be the reason behind the deaths—as well as his mother and three brothers were all dead.

Why 42-year-old Jonathan Candy killed his wife Lindsay, 39, and his boys, Lucas, 12, Ethan, 14, and Dylan, 18, is unknown, as is the reason he spared his youngest child.

According to Sergeant Gary Knight, the youngster reported to 911 that he had just woken up and discovered their bodies.

The shooting that occurred in Oklahoma City, USA, on the 2800 block of Mirage Street had an unidentified motivation.

It is thought that the parents got into a fight either early on Monday, April 22, or late on Sunday night, April 21.

Sgt Knight said: “At some point he armed himself with a gun, he shot her multiple times, killing her.

“At that point he systematically went through the home shooting and killing the children.”

When police arrived, he described the scene as “carnage”.

He said: “Make no mistake about it, what happened in that residence was nothing short of a massacre.”

Cops said they do not doubt the boy saying that he slept through the shooting. He called cops shortly after 9.30am. 

Sgt Knight said: “The door (to his room) was closed and there was a box fan running. There is no indication he didn’t sleep through it.”

He was not injured and is under the care and custody of relatives.

 The family had no previous contact with law enforcement or history of domestic violence, and there had been no police calls to their home, according to Knight. 

“It remains a mystery as to what caused Mr Candy to murder his wife and three of his children,” stated a police report.
