A Strongsville family of four that was having legal problems were killed in their home Friday morning in an apparent murder-suicide. Police Chief Charles Goss said that the bodies were found by a family friend, who called the police. The friend was concerned about finding the home unlocked with no one around the house. The bodies of Daniel Todt, 45, his 48-year old wife, Rebecca, and children Dominique, 16, and 13-year old Nathaniel were found inside the home. Goss said Todt apparently shot his wife and children before taking his own life. A revolver was found close to Todt's body. The chief said the shootings apparently stemmed from the financial and legal problems the family was having. Goss would not specify what type of problems the couple was having and said it wasn't clear if their problems were related to their careers. The chief said a computer and a tape recording were seized and they are being examined by officer to confirm the motive of the shootings. No suicide note was found.
