Four people are confirmed dead after an Arizona man shot his wife and two children before killing himself in a murder-suicide.
The horrific events took place Friday, while officers responded to the scene located near 100th Street and Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard Saturday, police confirmed.
Jason Fairbanks, 39, shot and killed his wife, Annie Fairbanks, 39, as well as his daughter, 3, and son, 9 months, before turning the gun on himself.
The Fairbanks family resided in a 'two-story stucco home in a quiet upper-middle-class neighborhood,' according to a report by the local Arizona Central.
The four individuals were found in the home after Fairbanks failed to show up to work and a concerned co-worker went to check on him.
When the co-worker entered the home, they discovered the bodies, said Sgt. Ben Hoster, spokesperson of the Scottsdale Police Department.
Investigation revealed the family had been suffering financial troubles - a possible motive in the murder-suicide.
The couple owned the Macrotherapy Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation clinic in Old Town Scottsdale.
The late wife was 'a Master CHEK Practitioner and a doctor of holistic nutrition,' according to an allevents.in page.
'Annie studied and completed courses in Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, Advanced Metabolic Typing and is a licensed nutritionist.'
Fairbank's sister, Laura Fairbanks, described her brother as a 'protector' and a hard worker; however, she knew the family had been experiencing money woes as of late.
'I just wished he had asked for help,' the solemn sister said in an interview with the newspaper.
'He wasn't a bad person ... He loved his family so much.'
Jason and Annie got married and started a family a year and a half after they moved in together.
'Boy, (Annie) loved those kids ... She loved them so much,' Laura added.
She remembered her late sister-in-law as someone who 'just made you feel all right' in her presence.
'Jason could make people laugh in ways you never thought you could ... He was an extraordinary big brother.'
