One Dead, Three Injured in Darmstadt Family Stabbing/Shooting

A father is in the hospital with self inflicted stab wounds after police said he attacked his wife and twin daughters Monday morning, killing one of them.

Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputies received a call just after 7:00 AM about an assault in progress at a home on Shillington Drive in the Shadow Bluff Estates neighborhood of Darmstadt.

Deputies said one of the women in the family was found dead inside the house when they arrived.

Two victims were found inside the house and were taken to an area hospital.

Deputies also said the suspect gave himself stab wounds while he was being taken into custody. He's considered to be in serious condition.

Law enforcement on the scene said one of the women was able to run to a neighbor's home and that's how they were notified.

"The part of the puzzle that is missing right now is that we don't know why the father acted aggressively this morning. We don't know what precipitated this," said Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding.

The Sheriff's Office has not released the name of anyone involved in the incident. They also haven't specified which of the three women was found dead in the home.

The twin girls are in their 20's according to Wedding.

The Sheriff's Office and the Vanderburgh County Coroner's Office will host a joint news conference at the Coroner's Office at 3:30 p.m.
