ERIE, Colo. — Investigators have confirmed John “JP” Farrar stabbed his wife and 4-year-old son before shooting himself in the head in his Erie home last month.

The Boulder County Coroner released its official report on Sunday.

Farrar, his wife, Elizabeth “Stacy” Farrar, and their son, Ian Connor Farrar, were found dead in their home in the 1900 block of Gordon Court on May 20.

The coroner’s report said Stacy Farrar and her son were stabbed multiple times. Investigators previously said they were treating the case as a domestic violence murder-suicide.

“It appears both Elizabeth ‘Stacy’ Farrar and son Ian C. Farrar were stabbed and killed by John ‘JP’ Farrar,” police chief Kimberly Stewart said in a statement last month.

Police also stated the deaths were “an isolated incident” and the general public was not at risk.
