Four Dead in Jersey Shore Fire

Authorities responding to a report of a house fire on the Jersey shore found a family of four mortally wounded inside a bedroom, and investigators believe they might be victims of a murder-suicide, a prosecutor said Wednesday, reports 6abc.com.

The fire was reported late Tuesday in the family’s Long Branch home, not far from the beach.

When firefighters arrived, the victims were “found in the same upstairs bedroom and they were struggling to survive,” said Marc LeMieux, first assistant Monmouth County prosecutor.

A couple and their two children were taken to a hospital, where they died. Some of their injuries were unrelated to the fire, LeMieux said.

The victims were identified as Lyndon Beharry, 35; Amanda Morris, 29; and their children, 7-year-old Brandon Beharry and 4-year-old Brian Beharry.
