Missouri man kills estranged wife, two children before turning gun on himself

A Missouri man suspected of murdering his estranged wife and her two children fatally shot himself as police tried to arrest him last week, a report said.

Bobby McCulley, 35, allegedly carried out the triple murder last Thursday — just five days after filing for divorce from 34-year-old Roseann Williams McCulley, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Roseann McCulley, her 13-year-old son, Kayden Johnson, 13, and her 6-year-old daughter Kaylee Brooks, were found dead at her home outside of St. Louis, the report said.

After the deadly shootings, Bobby McCulley is accused of taking his 1-year-old daughter, whom he shared with his estranged wife, prompting authorities to issue an Amber Alert.

Hours later, this baby was discovered unharmed with relatives of Bobby McCulley, police said.

The next morning at about 7 a.m., police found Bobby McCulley inside a car in St. Louis’ Old North neighborhood, the report said.

But as authorities closed in, he shot himself dead.

Bobby McCulley’s mother, 55-year-old Michelle Clayton, was charged with hindering the prosecution of a felony for allegedly trying to steer investigators away from her then-at-large son, the report said.
