Orange County investigators are looking for clues to an apparent triple murder-suicide on Monday.
Detectives say Roderick Morris Farb shot his wife and two other people just before 7:00 a.m. at a residence near Mebane and then killed himself.
The other victims are identified by the Orange County Sheriff's Department as Farb's wife, Erin Elizabeth Farb and her nine-year-old daughter, Ashley Thomas.
An unidentified man from Utah who was reportedly staying with the family to protect Erin Farb from her husband was also killed. Sheriff's department Captain B.J. Collins says the man's identity is being withheld pending notification of relatives.
Neighbors say they could hear gunshots as they took their children to school. A family friend says Erin Farb's 18-year-old son was getting on the school bus when he heard the gunfire from inside the home.
