The Cabool Police Department is investigating a murder/suicide that occurred Monday.
According to a report issued by Cabool Police Department, Tammy Fleming, 43, shot and killed her son, Charles Loftis, 15, and then turned the gun on herself.
The report states family members found the bodies in a home on the 600 block of Sunset Street.
Dispatcher Bob Lawson of the CPD said Tuesday that a note had been found at the scene explaining that the motive behind the shootings was family financial difficulties.
Lawson said that 911 received a call at about 4:20 p.m. after the bodies had been discovered, and there was reason to believe that some amount of time may have gone by between the murder and the suicide.
