Family cliff plunge case in California ruled murder-suicide – BBC News

A family of eight who died after their car plunged off a California cliff were killed in a “murder-suicide”, the state’s coroner’s office has ruled.

The Mendocino County Sheriff-Coroner made the statement after a two-day inquest into the tragic 2018 deaths.

The parents had researched suicide online before the crash, officials say.

The crash, which killed six adopted children ages 12 to 19, came days after an inquiry was opened into allegations of child abuse against the parents.
