What a heinous tragedy.

According to multiple reports, Shanna's husband Craig Vandewege found the pair dead upon returning home from work around 9:30 p.m. on December 15. At this time, Craig has been cooperating with investigators and has not been named as a suspect.

To make this incident even more upsetting, sources reveal Mrs. Vandewege had suffered multiple miscarriages before finally conceiving her son. The baby was a miracle child for the slain mom.

Shanna's dad told ABC8 News:

"They tried so long to have a baby. She had three miscarriages prior to having one."

So upsetting.

Vandewege's father also confirmed his daughter's plans to travel to her native home of Colorado for Christmas, a trip both parties had been looking forward to. Apparently the mother had JUST made the move from Texas to Denver.

As of now, authorities have no motive for the slayings. No suspects have been named. We'll keep you updated as we receive more info.

P.S. You can support Shanna's family during this unimaginable time by donating to their GoFundMe page HERE.
