Jackson County sheriff identifies murder-suicide victims, shooter

Four people are dead as a result of an apparent murder-suicide arising from a domestic incident that happened overnight in the Latimer community, Sheriff Mike Ezell said.

Ezell identified the murder victims as Veronica Lyons Griswold, 64, Bjorn Stephen Griswold, 36, and Jillian Nicole Pavolini, 39. The suicide victim has been identified as Thomas Allen Griswold.

Veronica was Thomas’ ex-wife. Bjorn was their son and Pavolini was Bjorn’s ex-wife.

Ezell said the three murder victims were found dead in the house on Oakview Circle when deputies responded to a call of shots fired.

When they arrived, deputies heard a gunshot. They entered the residence and found the victims and Thomas Allen Griswold, 64, who appeared to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot.

Lorraine Weiskopf is in Jackson County and will have more later today on WXXV.
