Rene Ogden Killed Her Twin Children, Then Committed Suicide: Coroner

The El Paso County Coroner has ruled that a Colorado Springs woman shot and killed her 13-year-old twins, then turned the gun on herself.

The murder-suicide occurred on Monday, and was originally investigated as a homicide.

Rene Ogden's husband, Tommy Ogden notified police on Monday after he returned home from work to find her body. Police later entered the home to find the two children.

A friend of the family told the Colorado Springs Gazette this week that he sensed Rene Ogden had been depressed before her death.

KUSA reports that the death of the twins' deaths were ruled the 20th and 21st homicides in Colorado Springs this year.
