The children were found dead in their respective bedrooms, and the two adults were found together in the master bedroom, Richland County Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. Curtis Wilson told the Charlotte Observer.

 

Each of the four was shot in the upper body and a handgun, the presumed murder weapon, was found near the father, Wilson said. 

 

He said initial evidence suggested a domestic disturbance. Investigators are checking records to see if there had been any prior domestic violence calls made to the house.

The family has not been officially identified but Richland County property records show the Millers owned the house. Friends also identified the dead as the Miller family.

 

The children's grandmother went to check on the young family after she hadn't heard from her son for a number of days, Wilson said. She immediately called police after discovering them dead.

 

According to property records, the Millers bought the lovely home in the Riverwalk neighborhood in 2012.

 

Wilson said the forensic team were trying to determine when the four were killed.

Family friend Rachel Hinson, 25, described them as a good family and said the children were both under the age of five.

 

She told the Observer she had attended bible study at the Millers' home and went to Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses with them. 

 

'It's confusing, and it's not understandable why something like that would happen,' said Hinson, who's grandmother lives near the home.

 

South Carolina is the worst of all 50 states when it comes to domestic homicides, according to a report by the Violence Policy Center in Washington.

So very sad. We really need the new system to put an end to the pain that must have existed even before this tragedy. A beautiful family on the outside, but obviously one of them had something severely wrong on the inside. Jehovah knows what was wrong and hopefully this family gets reunited someday without the mental anguish that it once faced. Prayers to those affected by the awful tragedy. :(

Everyday the news is worse and worse. As sad as we are, think of how Jehovah feels as He sees His creation suffer through these terrible ordeals. What patience He shows, but we know the end must be near. May Jehovah, the God of all comfort, protect us and save us. Please dear God.
