DOVER - A man, who - according to witnesses and unconfirmed reports - is suspected of going into the critical care unit of the Wentworth-Douglass Hospital then killing his wife and himself, left a Facebook post explaining his would-be actions.
NH1 News has confirmed from multiple sources that the identities of the shooter and the victim to be Mark and Kathy Lavoie of Dover.
Lavoie said in a Facebook post Tuesday morning:
"I want to start off by saying this is going to be officially ruled a murder/suicide when in all actuality it is a double suicide. My baby was trying to escape the bi-polar demons that have been swirling around in her brain since childhood and now because of my selfishness in dialing 911 she is experiencing the only thing she feared more than her illness... life support on a respirator. (Even though I brought her living will, the doc said her wishes didn't apply because depression isn't a non-reversible state. I however did not see that stipulation.) I am more than happy to sacrifice my life to fix my doing and join her spirit in a happier place."
A representative from the N.H. Attorney General's Office held a press conference about the incident at the hospital just before 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
