Parents And Their 6 Kids Found Shot And Killed In Burning Oklahoma House

TULSA, OKLAHOMA — An Oklahoma family of eight, including six children, were found dead inside their burning home in Broken Arrow, a suburb of Tulsa, last October.

Preliminary autopsy reports have now revealed that each family member was shot, with four of the children suffering multiple gunshot wounds, according to My Panhandle.

Brian Nelson, 34, and his wife Brittney Nelson, 32, were found with gunshot wounds to the head, and the manner of their deaths remains unknown.

The six children, aged between 1 and 13, were found in a burning bedroom, and their deaths have been ruled as homicide due to gunshot wounds.

At the time, police had referred to the incident as a murder-suicide.

The Broken Arrow Police Department stated that they have reviewed the medical examiner’s reports but have no additional information to provide at this time.

Family members previously told the Tulsa World that the couple was experiencing financial difficulties, with the Nelsons filing for bankruptcy in 2020, listing nearly $138,000 in liabilities and around $8,800 in assets, including nine guns.
