The next horrific scene, 2 of 3, that Deputy Moderson discovered was the Margaret Amato, 61, cold and slumped over her computer keyboard in the home office.
Detectives believe Margaret was the first to die, completely unaware of her son, Grant, had the handgun barrel pointed to the back of her head as she typed on the computer.
