According to the police, the policemen have only been on the force for a short time. As per sources, Ethington killed Martin and then committed himself after a recent split. There were reportedly some domestic problems between them, but nothing that would indicate a murder-suicide would occur.

“Emotional healing will take place for all the kids. which they must manage. Someone needs to explain what happened to them because they are now without a mother or father.

According to White, the department is examining the lessons that can be drawn from this tragedy. He stated, “We’ll definitely look internally at everything we can do to assist our officers who may find themselves in a domestic scenario.”
