UPDATED 1:53 p.m.
LEHMAN - Robert Stolarick, 51, and his son, Robbie, 26, were identified by Donna Estus, Robert's sister, as the victims in a murder-suicide that was discovered today on Summit Street in Lehman.
Estus, of Georgia, said she visited her family in Pennsylvania over the Easter holiday and was preparing to head home today when she heard what had happened at her brother's home.
“He was an awesome father. That boy was his life,” Estus said.
Estus said her brother may have had some type of mental illness, and the family tried to get him professional help several times.
She added that her brother was fine over the Easter holiday until Monday when, after a phone call, he became upset and believed that someone was going to take his son.
The bodies were removed from the home by the coroner's office, and Acting Coroner William Lisman said all signs point to the deaths being the result of a murder-suicide.
