Va medical examiner rules deaths murder-suicide

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Authorities have ruled the fatal shootings of a father, mother and son found dead in their burning home a murder-suicide.

The state medical examiner’s office says Virginia and Robert Ware and their son, Ashton, each died Friday of a single gunshot wound, and that Virginia Ware died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Their bodies were found in their home in Henrico County on Friday.

A search warrant indicates that investigators are searching for evidence of murder and arson.

The family was scheduled to undergo eviction proceedings the day the fire occurred. Court records show that the modest two-bedroom home was sold for $102,000 at a foreclosure auction Dec. 2 because of a default on a $98,000 loan.


From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Siva Mycropolis and her son, Chris Jeter, who both grew up in CAroline County, described Ware as a vivacious person given to stylish clothes and high-priced cars who worked as a bail bondsman and carried a handgun.

"We talked the night before this happened for two hours, and she said she had a flight to Florida [on Friday] morning to pick up" someone who had skipped bond, said Jeter, who also grew up in Caroline.

But state records do not show that Ware is registered as a bail bondsman, and Owens said yesterday that police have been unable to confirm that she had held such a job.
