The body of 37-year-old Christine Adewunmi was found on Saturday afternoon along with the bodies of her three daughters, Lauren, 8, Samantha, 6 (ABOVE), and Kate, 3.
All four had sustained one gunshot wound each. It is believed the mother shot her children before turning the gun on herself. A handgun was found close to the bodies.
The bodies were found by a guest at the Blue Springs Ranch campground, in Bourbon, about 80 miles southwest of St Louis.
Police say they appeared to have been there for several hours before they were found. The resort has campsites, cabins, trail riding and other activities on the Meramec River.
The husband and father of the three girls, who all went to Oak Brook Elementary in the Parkway School District, had reported the four missing on Friday.
He told St Louis County Police Department that his wife and their daughters were gone when he returned home from work.
