Daniel (age 12), Christopher (7), and Victoria Bever (5) were stabbed to death, allegedly by their older brothers, Robert (age 18) and Michael Bever (age 16). The children’s parents, David and April Bever, were also killed, and their sister Crystal (age 13) was injured but survived. Their 2-year-old sister Autumn was not harmed. The children were “home schooled and kept on a tight leash.”

The deaths were discovered after police responded to a 911 call made by Daniel. Robert and Michael were arrested and Robert was charged with murder. The investigation is ongoing.
