Jonathan Candy, Wife and 3 Kids Killed, Oklahoma Family Murder, Suicide

The relatives of the Oklahoma City man who brutally killed his wife and three of their children expressed in a recent interview their determination not to allow the shocking murder-suicide to “define” them as they tend to the lone surviving son.

The wife’s family steadfastly avoids mentioning Jonathan Candy’s name in the aftermath of his attack on his wife, Lindsay, and the subsequent pursuit of his three sons — Dylan, 18, Ethan, 14, and Lucas, 12 — before fatally turning the gun on himself.

Since then, the family’s attention has shifted to the 10-year-old boy who miraculously emerged unharmed and discovered his entire family deceased.

According to Police

On the morning of April 22, the 10-year-old bravely dialed 911 after waking up to the horrifying scene described by the police as “carnage.”

Sergeant Gary Knight described the incident as an “unspeakable tragedy” where Jonathan Candy, during a heated argument with his wife, resorted to violence, systematically shooting and killing the children.
