CENTRAL WEST END (KTVI)-Friends and family gathered at the Cathedral Basilica Saturday to pay their final respects to a Glendale mother and her two young children. Police say Catherine Murch, 42, shot and killed her son, 11 year old Mitchell, and daughter, 9 year old Mary Claire, then turned the gun on herself. Fox 2 cameras rolled from afar as three caskets were carried one by one from the church Saturday afternoon.
Major Case Squad detectives say Murch’s struggle with mental illness, depression, and financial issues may have caused her to take their lives.
