Father kills sons, then shoots self
Feb. 22, 1997
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A father shot his three young sons to death Saturday, then turned a gun on himself, police said.
Officers found the body of Kevin Dale Fox, 32, near the doorway of his home early Saturday, said police spokesman Pete Walker. He died late Saturday morning at Southwest Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Fox's sons, Cody, 11, Cory, 10, and Caleb, 8, were found shot to death in the bedrooms of the house, police said. ``We're treating it a homicide-suicide,'' Walker said.
Although no suicide note was found, Walker said Fox's divorce from the boys' mother had recently become final. Fox apparently called the mother, who was out of town, and said something that alarmed her, police said. The mother called a relative, who then called police.
