Tamarac, Florida (AP) --

Authorities say ten people were killed in three different murder-suicides that rocked South Florida on the same day, Sept. 27.

Shortly after 2 a.m. Monday, Riviera Beach police say
41-year-old Patrick Dell killed his estranged wife and four
stepchildren before killing himself.

Hours later, 39-year-old Lena Mitiledessalines was found dead in
her Lauderdale Lakes home where authorities say she moved to from
the Philadelphia area to escape an abusive relationship. Her former
boyfriend's body was discovered on the ground with a handgun
nearby.

Authorities later found an unidentified married couple dead inside their
Tamarac home after conducting a welfare check. The husband had
written in a letter saying he intended to kill them.
