"Emily had tried everything to get better but nothing seemed to help her. I took a gun and shot her in the head and now she is migraine free and floating in the clouds on a sunny afternoon, her long beautiful brown hair flowing in the breeze, a true angel."

That chilling passage comes from Facebook, where a man allegedly confessed to shooting his daughter, wife, and sister before killing himself.

CBC reports that police are investigating multiple homicides that are thought to be related to a post from a British Columbia man named Randy Janzen. In the post, he says that he was unable to continue to watch his daughter suffer from depressions an migraines, so he shot her in the head.

"Then I shot Laurel because a mother should never have [to] hear the news her baby has died. Then a couple of days later my sister Shelly because I did not want her to have to live with this shame I have caused all alone."

According to the Canadian Press, "homicide investigators have said several members of one family, including the suspect, are dead at two crime scenes in B.C.'s Fraser Valley. They have not released identities but confirmed the Facebook post is part of their probe."

Today we celebrate the incomparable Emily Janzen. A former student and instructor, forever a part of our CSOPA family....

"Now my family is pain free and in heaven," wrote Janzen. "I have great remorse for my actions and feel like the dirt that I am. I am taking full responsibility for my actions of these murders. So sorry to anyone I have hurt. Rest in peace my little family {kiss emoji} Love Daddio xoxo."

According to a friend and co-worker, Janzen himself suffered from depression.

"It's brutal. I can't believe it. Randy was a good buddy, and now he's gone," said the co-worker. "I left work today. Honestly, when I heard about it I started crying. I had to go home and see my little girls, because it was too much... He was a funny guy, but he was a roller-coaster too. He was depressed, and then one minute he was up. And then he was down."
