Police say Beckwith's stepfather, Lawrence Verble, shot Beckwith and her mother before turning the gun on himself. Verble and Beckwith were both pronounced dead around 9 a.m. May 19.

Verble's wife, who is the mother of Beckwith, was listed yesterday in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the chest. Neighbors told media yesterday that Verble appeared to be a friendly and helpful man and were shocked he turned a gun on his family.
