(Scroll down for video) In a tragic turn of events, a mother killed her loved ones who stood at her side when she battled cancer.
Angelica Vazquez, a 43-year-old cancer survivor, in Dallas, Texas, shot her husband and two adult children before killing herself.
The victims, were those who were closest to her. Her husband Marcelo Vazquez, 44, and her children Paulina Vazquez, 21, and Alejandro Vazquez, 18.
According to neighbors, Alejandro 18, graduated from Mesquite High School and his sister, Paulina, a 21-year-old University of North Texas student.
Police were called to the family home after neighbors heard gunshots, but there was no sign of forced entry, leading everyone to assume that nothing bad had happened, according to local press reports.
Four days later, one of the officers returned to the same address to find a full mailbox and uncollected newspapers in the front yard.
After weighing their options, the local police department decided to force their way into the house where they found the four bodies.
No motive has been determined.
