    Rosedale, B.C.
    The post on Randy Janzen's Facebook page says that he killed his daughter to relieve her of migraines and depression. He then killed his wife to spare her the pain of losing her child, then went on to kill his sister to relieve her of the shame his actions would have caused her.

    The post emerged following overnight news of a house fire at the Janzen's residence that turned into a police siege and homicide investigation.

    Randy Janzen and family's recent history probed by police
    Police say discovery of 3 badly burned bodies is consistent with apparent Facebook confession

    Homicide investigators want to trace the Janzen family's steps leading up to a triple homicide that rocked a Fraser Valley community in B.C. last week.

    A post on Randy Janzen's Facebook page appeared to be a confession that he killed his 19-year-old daughter Emily because she was suffering from migraines and depression.

    He's also believed to have killed his wife, Laurel, and sister, Shelley.

    "At this point, our priority is to speak with anybody who had been in contact with the Janzen family in a three-week period leading up to the incident on May 7," says Sgt. Stephanie Ashton.

    I found his description of Emily in her 'afterlife' more than a tad creepy, and the over-explanation of her migraine suffering suspicious. I strongly suspect something even darker will come to light as the investigation continues.

    I don't think this was a 'mercy killing', or anything like one. Family annihilators are always about having ultimate control over the family's lives, and are very narcissistic. And I think the note was subtle victim blaming, personally, and a way to avoid being judged harshly for his actions.

    I read that there was a standoff with police before the house caught fire. Again, more like family annihilation behaviour than mercy killing. Have the police release info yet on whether he definitely committed suicide, ie, by gunshot, rather than suffocating on smoke or something? I'm betting he shot himself rather than go to jail.

    And just as an aside, I hate how the papers are headlining that he sang in a heavy metal band, as if that automatically makes somebody more likely to slaughter their family.

    Ohhhh-- I just reread his post, "a couple of says later" he killed his sister. So was he in the house with the bodies of his family all that time? The whole timeline is kind of confusing.

    But I think he killed his wife and daughter, then his sister at her home, perhaps "a few days later" (perhaps not), then gone back home to type his message & wait for police.

    Shortly after the post was uploaded to the social network on Thursday, investigators confirmed a multiple homicide involving relatives had taken place at two different residences in the province.

    At around 3pm on Thursday, police learned from a tip that a man had possibly killed his relatives and rushed to the Langley property, where someone was found dead inside, CBC reported.

    A second tip sparked concerns about the property that was reportedly owned by Janzen in Llanberis Way, east of Chilliwack, where neighbors apparently heard a series of gunshots followed by 'a loud bang'.

    A SWAT team surrounded the house and a standoff ensued. Around four hours later, officials fired distraction devices into the house, which quickly set ablaze and exploded.

    Janzen is believed to have killed himself during the police standoff, according to The Province.

    Although the man and the victims are yet to be formally identified, Janzen owned the home that exploded on Llanberis Way in Rosedale and neighbors said a family of three lived at the property.

    Tragic Aldergrove murder shakes the community

    The horrific murder of an Aldergrove woman in her home, as part of a murder-suicide spree by her brother, has left the community deeply shaken.

    It has also shaken us at The Times and our sister newspaper The Aldergrove Star, as Shelly Janzen was one of our carriers.

    She had lived in the home on 271A Street with her mother, who passed away last August at the age of 80. She was instrumental in taking care of her.

    One good thing which has come out of this is that one of Shelly Janzen’s neighbours is looking to organize an event so that people in his neighbourhood can get to know one another better. This is a wise move.

    In a day and age when people are often very isolated in their homes, captivated by technology, it still remains important to get to know people who live nearby. Putting a name to a face, exchanging greetings, and looking out for each other in case of potential trouble in the neighbourhood — all of these are good things.
