In a tragic incident, two Missouri boys were killed by their own father in what is being described as a murder-suicide. The father of the two children is an individual identified as 43-year-old Christopher Cadenbach, who committed suicide shortly after killing both his sons. The kids have been identified as five-year-old Ethan Cadenbach and and four-year-old Owen Cadenbach. According to a Yahoo News report, the incident happened inside Cadenbach’s car near Cliff Cave County Park on Saturday. According to Lt. Col. Ken Cox with St. Louis County Police, the incident started earlier on Saturday after an arrest warrant was issued for Christopher Cadenbach, on domestic violence charges in Franklin County.
Earlier in the day, Christopher had spent time with both his sons and their mother at a park. By evening, the family returned to a home in the 300 block of Rauhut in south St. Louis County. After that, Cadenbach reportedly forcibly took the mother’s car along with the kids and drove off. After the children were taken away from her, the mother contacted the police, who in turn issued an Amber Alert. The alert also included the description of the vehicle in which Cadenbach and the two kids were in.
