NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Tex. -- (KDAF) -- Spider-Man hangs on the side of the house, a bag on his back with a 'Happy Holidays' tag on it. An apparent Superhero Santa marking that, yes, this is a house with kids. That was remarkable before Saturday. A neighbor two doors down even said she walked her grandkids over there a few days ago to look at the Christmas lights in the yard and on the gutter.
Saturday, though, the attention brought to the house was signified by the neighborhood nightmare roped just below Spider-Man – the yellow tape marking off the North Richland Hills property as a crime scene.
"It's an apparent murder-suicide," NRHPD Media Relations Coordinator Carissa Ketakaru said, just outside the home at the corner of College Circle South and Susan Lee Lane. "We have two small children under the age of 10 deceased, and then the father is also deceased."
