Victims' father calls murder-suicide 'horrific tragedy'

December 20, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Brad Lemke, father of 8-year-old Skyler and 7-year-old Ian Lemke, says, "There is nothing that can be said to justify such a horrific tragedy, one that was so unexpected and unforeseen. It has affected our family beyond words."

The children were killed on Friday. Investigators say their mother Sara McMeen shot the boys, along with her 10-month-old baby and her live-in boyfriend before turning the gun on herself.
