Investigators believe three deaths discovered Tuesday night at a timeshare resort in Minnesota were the result of a murder-suicide, according to reports.

According to the Crow Wing County Attorney’s Office, 54-year-old Melanie Michele Jansen and her daughter, 29-year-old Hannah Nicole Parmenter, were both found shot multiple times. Jansen’s boyfriend, 59-year-old Michael Charles Toner, suffered a single gunshot wound to the head.

The attorney’s office said Thursday that police believe Toner fatally shot the two women before killing himself.

A man identified as Jansen’s son and Parmenter’s brother told police he and his wife arrived at the timeshare Tuesday evening to meet his family, who had been renting the unit since Friday, but their knocks at the door went unanswered. He then peeked through the window and encountered the bloody scene.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office are assisting with the investigation.
