Riddle of a ‘nice guy’ dad who ‘murdered wife then turned gun himself’ days after daughter’s fifth birthday.

Published

on

Just last weekend, Kristin and Matthew Eberhardt seemed the picture of happiness – celebrating their daughter’s fifth birthday with a party at the family home.

Matthew, 45, worked in construction and was described by neighbour Jonelle Finney as “a super-nice, down-to-earth guy”.

His wife Kristin, 42, is believed to have worked in law from home to help taking care of their children, a one-year-old baby boy and daughter.

On December 21, she posted a picture of the family-of-four standing smiling in front of their Christmas tree on Facebook.

But what appeared to be a stable and loving family, has now been shattered after Matthew shot Kristin dead on their doorstep before turning the gun on himself.

Police were called to a domestic dispute at the home in Northampton County, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday night and said they are treating the case as murder-suicide.

Friends told report they used to share neighbourhood parties with the Eberhardts and can’t understand what happened.

The newspaper said local records gave no indication of pending financial or criminal problems for the pair.

Pat Finney told how he helped Matthew put in a new deck at the home last year and the couple had recently bought a new car.

The two young children are now being cared for by relatives, it is understood.

Pictures showed Christmas decorations and lighting still hanging over the porch at the family home on Wednesday as crime scene investigations continued.
