CHANDLER - Authorities are currently investigating the deaths of a Valley father and his three-month-old son.
Detective Seth Tyler of the Chandler Police Department said authorities are investigating the deaths as a possible murder-suicide near Ray Road and Arizona Avenue.
Frank Barazza, a neighbor who lives about seven houses down, described the entire situation as sad.
"How desperate can an individual be to take it to that length? What's going through a individual's head? It's just saddening," said Barazza.
Police were called to the area around 2 a.m. Sunday morning. First responders found the body of a 25-year-old male, believed to be the father, sitting in the front seat of the car. The body of a 3-month-old boy was on his lap.
The father and son attended a family gathering earlier in the evening.
A handwritten sign posted on the door of the home where the incident happened read, "No comment. Please respect our family's privacy at this difficult time."
