Dad murders daughter, self (Middleburg, Florida)

Dad DENNIS LANGEVIN shot to death his 23-year-old daughter and then himself. Another younger daughter found the bodies. In total, three adult children lived with Dad. Mom had moved out a few months ago. It seems to me that there is a lot of back story here that isn't being told, and it goes much deeper than the clueless neighbor's assessment of a "nice family." Apparently things were really not all that peachy, wouldn't you think?

MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said Sunday the shooting deaths of a father and daughter on the Westside were the results of a murder/suicide.

According to the Clay County Sheriff's Office, police found the bodies of Dennis, 51, and Andrea Langevin, 23, when they were called to 2709 Tina Lane in the Greenwood subdivision at 8:15 a.m. Friday in Orange Park.

Saturday, the sheriff's office said preliminary autopsy results had determined that Langevin shot his daughter and then turned the gun on himself.

One of Andrea Langevin's younger sisters discovered her in the house then found her father, both shot to death. The body of the father and a gun were found behind a vacant house next door, 2713 Tina Lane.

In addition to the sister that found the bodies, a younger brother also lives at the house, but neither sibling was home; all are adults. A fourth sibling lives at the Beaches. Their mother moved out a few months ago and was in Maryland at the time of the shootings, police said.

One Clay County detective said police have been called to the house before but not for a domestic dispute. He would not elaborate.

One neighbor said Andrea Langevin's birthday was Friday. Another described the Langevins as a nice family and said Dennis Langevin used to deliver pizzas in the area.
