NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson's in-laws, along with one of their grandchildren, were found dead in Muskogee, Oklahoma, on Monday night in what police suspect was a murder-suicide, according to multiple reports.
The bodies of Jack Janway and Terry Janway -- the parents of Johnson's wife Chandra -- and 11-year-old Dalton Janway, Chandra's nephew, were found following a reported disturbance involving a gun. Law enforcement officials told Fox 23 that Terry is a suspect.
The investigation is still ongoing, with no motive known yet.
Local newspaper the Muskogee Phoenix reported that dispatch received a 911 call at approximately 9:05 p.m. local time from a woman who reported a disturbance involving a gun. She then hung up the phone. When officers went inside the house of where the disturbance was taking place, they found 69-year-old Dr. Jack Janway -- Johnson's father-in-law -- lying in the hallway. Soon after, they heard a gunshot from further inside the home.
More officers arrived at the scene and found 68-year-old Terry Janway, Jack's wife, as well as their 11-year-old grandson, Dalton Janway, dead in a different part of the house.
