Authorities confirmed what many had feared yesterday - the victims inside a horrific house fire in Tampa, Florida were all shot before the blaze began. Police believe the bullets came from the father’s gun, which was also found in the charred remains.
The Campbell family had been renting the now destroyed mansion from former American tennis star James Blake.
The house reportedly exploded and went up in flames at an incredible speed.
A disturbing new video being released shows dad Darrin Campbell purchasing $600 worth of fireworks just three days before this tragedy happened!
See the evidence for yourself below.
A Phantom Fireworks employee says Campbell explained that he was doing some early Fourth of July shopping and used a 50% off coupon. He says there was nothing unusual about the sale and that Campbell seemed calm.
He also reportedly bought several gasoline cans last weekend as well.
While all of this suspicious activity makes it clear to most that this was a murder-suicide, investigators are not ruling the crime as such just yet.
This breaks our heart.
We’ll bring you more updates as they come in.
The cops are now officially confirming that they're considering the terrible event a murder-suicide.
