HEATHROW, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) – The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the deaths of a man, his wife and their two children, whose bodies were found inside their home in a gated Heathrow neigborhood on Monday morning.

The victims have been identified as John D. Wood, 41, Cynthia Wood, 40, Aubrey Wood 12 and Dillon Wood, 10. Their bodies were discovered by a cleaning person around 11 a.m. inside their home located at 1214 Trentwood Court. Investigators believe the deaths were a murder-suicide and that the husband killed his wife and children.

Detectives didn’t immediately suggest a motive. “This is a family who was well-known in the neighborhood,” Capt. Dennis Lemma, a spokesman for the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. “With children that age, in a residential community like this, a lot of the kids played together and went to school together.”

FOX 35 has learned the family was having financial problems and that the husband had recently filed for bankruptcy. Neighbors said they had not seen the family cars leave the driveway since Friday.

Two of the family dogs, both unharmed, were taken by Seminole County officials.
