According to a report from Las Vegas Review Journal, former Goatlord guitarist Joe Frankulin murdered a wife and her son before committing suicide on Friday, October 2.

Frankulin reportedly shot Jennifer Bagley Donoso inside her home sometime around 7:00 a.m. Donoso’s three children were also in the house at the time. Following the initial shooting, her daughter ran to a neighbor’s house for help.

Once police arrived, however, they became aware that one of the children was missing. Frankulin allegedly took one of Donoso’s sons back to his house. Before officers were able to reach out to Frankulin, they discovered the boy’s body, along with Frankulin’s, in the house’s garage.

At the time of the initial report, a motive was still being determined. It's not “what happened, but why,” Metro homicide Lt. Dan McGrath said.

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help the victims’ family.
