How U.S. family made ‘joint decision’ to kill themselves

Morgan Daub, 26, and her parents, James Daub, 62, and Deborah Daub, 59, were found dead in the backyard of their home in York County in what police say was a suicide pact.

A Pennsylvania family found shot dead in their backyard last week in what police say appears to be a suicide pact included a mother and daughter who loved bowling and were devout Christian conservatives, people who knew them said.

Morgan Daub, 26, and her parents, James Daub, 62, and Deborah Daub, 59, were found dead on the ground in the backyard of their home in York County, Pennsylvania, on the morning of January 25 after police responded to a request for a welfare check from a neighbour.

The West Manchester Township Police Department has said that notes left inside the house indicate that the family recently made a “joint decision” to end their lives.

Police believe Deborah Daub shot and killed her husband and then was shot and killed by Morgan, who died by suicide. Police said there were no signs of forced entry or struggle and no evidence that anyone else had been present.

An investigation into the deaths has been closed.

People who knew the family expressed shock and heartbreak at the deaths. Morgan was described by members of the local bowling community as a shy, quiet young woman who was close with her mother and also a talented and avid bowler until she and her mother suddenly stopped visiting bowling stores and alleys in the area a few years ago, around the start of the pandemic.

“Morgan didn’t have a lot of words to say,” said Bret Stabley, who operates the pro shop at Bowlers Supply in York, Pennsylvania, where the mother and daughter were longtime customers.

Stabley said he believed Morgan, whom he described as “very meek and quiet” but also “very bright,” was homeschooled, and her mother often spoke on her behalf.

Stabley said he gave Morgan many bowling lessons over the years, and she became more sociable as she grew older. She was also “quite a good bowler,” he said.

Stabley said the Christian, churchgoing family “was never shy about letting anybody know what their beliefs were” regarding religion and politics.

For example, Stabley noted that Morgan and Deborah are “very, very huge” supporters of former President Donald Trump.

“They were just so hell-bent on Trump winning, like this could be in the end if he doesn’t,” Stabley said, referring to an instance when he saw them just before the 2020 election. He said he stopped seeing the two after that.

A neighbour who asked to remain anonymous for fear of personal or professional retaliation in their town said the family had a “preoccupation with religion, especially on the dad’s part.” The family’s front yard was also “littered” with Pro-Trump political signs during the elections and anti-abortion signs when Roe v. Wade was overturned, the neighbour said.

Terry Miller, the owner of Suburban Bowlerama, said Morgan and Deborah came to his bowling centre several times a week. “She grew up here,” he said of Morgan.

“To me, just watching their interactions, they just enjoyed it; they seemed to spend a lot of time together,” he said.

But Morgan and Deborah suddenly stopped coming by around 2019, Miller said.
