Pennsylvania

WYALUSING, Pa. (AP) – State police say four people were found dead in a northern Pennsylvania home in what is believed to have been a homicide-suicide.

Police in Bradford County said the bodies were found Friday in a home in Wyalusing.

Police said Jesse Lee Northrup is believed to have shot and killed Edwin Bidlack, Candy Diane Bidlack and Johnnie Johnson, whose bodies were found in separate locations in the residence.

Police said Northrup was also found deceased in the residence of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Ages of the four weren’t immediately available.

Neighbors said Edwin Bidlack owned Ed’s Heating in Wyalusing, Candy Diane Bidlack was his wife and Johnnie Johnson his employee. They said Northrup was Candy Bidlack’s son.
