The Lower Moreland Chainsaw Massacre

We don’t yet know the story behind this, but I’m glad I don’t live near it:

LOWER MORELAND, Pa. (WPVI) — Police are investigating a grisly discovery at a home in Lower Moreland Township, Montgomery County where the bodies of a husband and wife were found Tuesday afternoon.

It was around 12:50 p.m. Tuesday when Lower Moreland Police were called out to a home on the 1100 block of Country Lane.

The Montgomery District Attorney’s Office says the couple’s child found the bodies inside the home – both had been mutilated with a chainsaw.

There are only a few houses on the road where it happened.

Eric Shallcross is a family friend of the wife and husband who own the 3700 square foot home.

Action News has confirmed the 48-year-old man is the owner of a Huntingdon Valley-based excavating company.

Shallcross says he went to high school with the 43-year-old wife.

“I know they’ve had come troubles. I’ve heard that from mutual friends and people who have been closer to them then I have been recently. But they’ve been together for 15, 20 years.”

According to the DA, the wife died of an apparent homicide. The manner of death for the husband remains uncertain.
