DEFIANCE: A couple, their daughter and teenage granddaughter were found shot to death in their rural home, and authorities were trying to determine if the grandfather’s health problems sparked the apparent triple murder and suicide.

The grandfather apparently killed the others and then took his own life, according to Defiance County Sheriff’s Office investigators.

The sheriff’s office said the bodies were discovered Thursday night by a family member who was checking on the welfare of the four.

They were last seen around 3 p.m. Wednesday.
