— The fatal shooting of a woman and her three young daughters at a Missouri resort has been ruled a murder-suicide.

Christine Adewunmi, 37, and her daughters 8-year-old Lauren, 6-year-old Samantha and 3-year-old Kate were discovered Saturday afternoon on a gravel road at the Blue Springs Ranch & Resort near Bourbon, Mo., about 80 miles southwest of St. Louis.

Crawford County Sheriff Randy Martin told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Monday that the mother killed her daughters and then turned the gun on herself. Martin did not respond to repeated interview requests from The Associated Press.

Neighbors of the Adewunmi family in the St. Louis County town of Ballwin described Christine Adewunmi as an attentive mother whose life revolved around her girls.
