WEYMOUTH (CBS) – Shocked family members are trying to understand what drove a teenager to allegedly kill his sister, mother, and mother’s boyfriend in Weymouth.
The Rudolph family released a statement on Saturday saying they are devastated by the tragedy that claimed the lives of 52-year-old Frederick Medina, 50-year-old Paula Rudolph, and 24-year-old Caylin Rudolph.
“Paula, Caylin and Frederick were kind and caring people who went out of their way to help others. They adored Caylin’s young daughters and enjoyed all of the daily activities with them. Our deepest sympathies also go out to the Medina family. Paula, Caylin and Frederick were all loved and will be forever missed,” the statement read.
18-year-old Donald Rudolph was set to be arraigned on Monday and formally charged with the murders.
Some of those who knew Rudolph, including former New England Patriots player Ronnie Lippet, say Rudolph was a troubled kid who, in the past, had displayed violent tendencies.
