Pennsylvania couple Tyler and Christina Roy, who killed in their home last week were already dead from multiple stab wounds when their attacker shot them repeatedly with Tyler’s own gun
A young Pennsylvania couple killed in their Bucks County home last week were already dead from multiple stab wounds when their attacker shot them repeatedly with a rifle, authorities said.
Tyler Roy, 28, and his 27-year-old wife, Christina Roy, were found dead on the second floor of their home off Kitty Knight Drive the morning of April 30 by a painter they’d previously hired.
Tyler, a construction estimator, and Christina, a professional photographer, were high school sweethearts described by friends and neighbors as a warm and outgoing couple with successful careers and a bright future Inquirer reports.
The Roys, who had purchased their first home on Kitty Knight Drive around the time of their wedding in 2016, were slain on the upper floor on April 30. Their bodies were found by a house painter early the next day, May 1.

Autopsies list their causes of death as “multiple stab and slash wounds.” After he stabbed them, the suspected killer, Daniel Mooney, fired at the couple with a gun belonging to Tyler Moore, authorities told the Inquirer.
Despite the violent way in which the Roys were killed, investigators said there was no apparent connection between them and their suspected killer, Daniel Mooney, who died on the day the bodies were found.
The motives remain obscure as well – “The only three people who know what truly happened in the house were the three people in the house,” First assistant District Attorney Greg Short said, and they’re all dead.

“We have no indication to say that this act was anything but random.
His family lives a few doors away from the Roy house on Kitty Knight Drive, but investigators believe he hadn’t lived at the home for some time.
ADA Gregg Shore said Mooney’s family has fully cooperated with the investigation.

Bucks County Pennsylvania authorities believe Daniel Kenneth Mooney, a heroine addict whose parents lived across the street from the victims, fatally stabbed and then shot Tyler and Christina Roy, in their home, on Apr 30
The killer stole Tyler Roy’s Ford Edge SUV and fled to Philadelphia, where authorities on Wednesday found him dead from an accidental drug overdose. The same day investigators recovered the Roys’ vehicle and Mooney’s cell phone in northeast Philadelphia, officials said.
There was an arrest warrant for Mooney in the theft of another vehicle from a gas station in North Hampton Township on April 30. The stolen vehicle was later found and authorities do not believe it was connected to the double murder.
Mooney had long struggled with heroin addiction, his former co-workers at Murray’s Richboro market said. The 26-year-old had been employed there on and off over the last decade, with his most recent stint coming to an end in December for a rehab stay.
Following his departure he still listed his address as his parents’, located across the street from the home the Roys purchased after they were married in 2016.
Still authorities have yet to uncover an apparent connection between Mooney and the Roys.
