Celebration of Life Planned for Abington Family Found Dead in Murder-Suicide

The district attorney said Wednesday that an Abington, Massachusetts, father shot and killed his wife and their three children before taking his own life earlier this week. Police received a 911 call for a medical emergency at a condo on Centre Avenue around 7:30 a.m. on Monday. When they arrived, they found the body of 40-year-old Deirdre Zaccardi. After further investigation, they found four other bodies — 9-year-old twins Nathaniel and Kathryn Zaccardi, 11-year-old Alexis Zaccardi and 43-year-old Joseph Zaccardi.
