(Newser) – California police believe they've found another case of a family wiped out in a murder-suicide—the second such tragedy in eight days, reports the AP. The discovery of the body of a man who apparently leaped to his death from a highway overpass near San Diego led investigators to a home where the corpses of his lover and her two young children were found. Just last week a man, his wife, and their two daughters were found drowned in the pool and bathtub of their San Diego home in what investigators believe was a murder-suicide likely carried out by the father.
