Four people in a rural Missouri Ozarks home were found dead Monday night after a neighbor saw a body in the home and called authorities. The sheriff's office there says it's now investigating the deaths as a murder-suicide.
All four died from gunshot wounds.
The Stone County, Mo., Sheriff's Office identified the victims in a Facebook post Tuesday.
Among the four dead was a high school senior, 17-year-old Daniel L. Gibson, who moved to the area last fall and went to Reeds Spring High School, the district told the Springfield News-Leader in a statement.

Victor D. Gibson, 47; Cynthia D. Miller, 43; and Susan A. Gibson, 70, were also found dead in the house, which is near Branson West, Mo.
The sheriff's office said evidence showed Victor Gibson died from a self-inflicted gunshot.
A neighbor, Rich Jarocki, told media outlets he called the sheriff's office after looking through glass on the front door and seeing a male body lying on the floor inside.
Jarocki said he had knocked on the door of the home after a female relative of the family called him Monday and asked if he would check on the family across the street, according to the Branson Tri-Lakes News. The relative said she hadn't heard from them in a couple days.
The neighbor said the people he knew at the home "appeared happy, but they mostly kept to themselves," the Tri-Lakes News reported.
The family had moved into the subdivision last year from California, the News-Leader reported.
The neighborhood where the shooting happened is home to mostly retirees, the sheriff's office told KY3.
The investigation was ongoing and autopsies were scheduled Wednesday morning.
