Three people found dead Wednesday from gunshot wounds to their heads planned their murder-suicide deaths, York County, Pennsylvania’s coroner determined.
York County Coroner Pamela Gay identified the three deceased as James Daub, 62, Deborah Daub, 59, and their 26-year-old daughter, Morgan Daub.
Based on a detailed investigation and evidence found at the scene, the coroner determined all three family members had preplanned their deaths. Communications from the family members was among the evidence, according to an ABC27 report.
Dr. Gay said in a statement that the three family members were found dead in the back yard of their 2098 Loman Avenue residence in West Manchester Township.
The daughter posted a video to YouTube the day before the three were found dead that consisted of just the phrase: “Follow me as I follow Christ.”
That video is one of three Morgan Daub posted to her YouTube channel. The daughter appears in one of the videos, attempting a British accent as she declared herself a member of “a royal priesthood.”
“They really f—– with the wrong family,” Daub said in a video posted late last year in which she declared she was “abdicating the throne of England.”
West Manchester Police Chief John Snyder Friday declined comment about the YouTube videos or the department’s investigation of the homicides, according to a York Dispatch report.
“My release does say that there were communications as evidence that helped us know that this was preplanned,” Gay said. “These were from the Daubs themselves. For some reason, it has been interpreted as communications from relatives. The communications were from them — notes they left.”
