Father, 3-year-old boy is found dead in an apparent murder and suicide in Harford County


Pensacola, Florida

Officials say a 3-year-old boy was killed by his father in what is being investigated as a murder-suicide.

Jason Douglas DeWitt, 38, and his son, Grayson DeWitt, 3, were found dead in a bedroom in a home on High Plane Drive in Bel Air.

At approximately 6 pm, investigators were called to the site after a report of a suicide bomber.

Eyewitnesses told the police that two people, one of them a child, were inside the house.

After entering inside, officials found a handwritten note stating that the explosives would detonate if the search continued.

The deputies immediately left the house and vacated the nearby headquarters.

At 11:30 PM, officials were able to re-enter the house with the help of the Maryland Fire Marshall State Office.

Police found Jason and Grayson, both of whom had a gunshot wound.
