The murder of Chris Moyer’s family was a tragic incident that took place in 2011. Christopher Moyer from Warrington, Pennsylvania, perpetrated the killing of his family and then ended his own life by letting a train run over him.
After confessing to the police about the murders, he exited the house and took his own life.
Upon the arrival of law enforcement, Christopher Moyer had already left the premises.
His body was found next to the SEPTA tracks in Hatboro approximately three hours later, where he had positioned himself to be struck by a train.
To this day, the family and friends are still troubled by the enigma of his actions.
How did he eliminate his family?
Prior to his own demise, Christopher Moyer murdered his wife, Irina Geller Moyer, and their son, Dillon.
While they were sleeping, he fatally assaulted them both with a baseball bat.
The 7-year-old child was discovered in a separate bedroom, and the 39-year-old wife’s body was found in the bathroom adjacent to the main bedroom during the investigation.
The police inquiry
Chris Moyer informed the police about his wife and son’s death, prompting an immediate investigation.
Officers from Warrick, Warminster, and Warrington surrounded the man’s residence in the 100 block of Redstone Drive.
Law enforcement deferred entering the residence as they were uncertain if the caller was still present. Upon entry, they discovered the accused murderer and the two deceased victims inside.
The bloodied bat was located next to the child, and there were no signs of resistance, leading officers to conclude that they were both asleep at the time of the attack.
Shortly thereafter, Moyer’s body was found on the railway track, along with other items and around $1300 in his pocket.
According to police, a 44-year-old Warrington man bludgeoned his wife and son with a baseball bat before giving himself up on Friday night.
Reportedly, he positioned himself in front of a train to end his own life. As per officials, the man reported the incident to 911 around 9:40 p.m.
He informed the 911 operator that he found his wife and son deceased from blunt trauma, and affirmed his involvement when asked by the operator.
The operator noted the caller’s gentle tone and his expression of gratitude during the conversation.
At 1.00 in the morning, Montgomery County police were summoned to a report of a fatality on train tracks in Hatboro. The 911 caller’s vehicle was discovered nearby.
According to the police, the individual seemingly placed his head on the train track while awaiting the train. A typed note containing relatives’ names and contact information was discovered inside the family home.
Investigators found evidence suggesting that the family was grappling with financial difficulties.
The Moyers’ monetary problems are the lone motive that investigators have been able to identify.
As there is no perpetrator to prosecute, the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office has stated that there will be no further investigation into the double murder-suicide that took place on Redstone Drive in Warrington on Friday night.
