TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Hillsborough County deputies have ended their investigation into a family’s murder-suicide in May inside a Tampa mansion and have found no motive.

Detectives say 49-year-old Darrin Campbell shot his 51-year-old wife Kimberly, their 18-year-old son Collin and 16-year-old daughter Megan. Then he spread fireworks and gasoline through the house, started a fire and turned the gun on himself.

Officials released the investigative documents Wednesday.

Autopsy reports show Campbell’s wife and children were each shot once in the head.

Authorities say Campbell bought a .40-caliber handgun and $600 in fireworks in the weeks before the shootings.

He was described as a caring, involved father.

The family was renting a $1.6 million home from retired tennis player James Blake.
