The Edwards’ 6-year-old son suffered from Williams syndrome, a developmental disorder. After his diagnosis, Julie became heavily involved with the Williams Syndrome Association, serving as regional director for the association.

Julie had coordinated a conference in Baltimore to be held this week. Despite the fact that she and Matthew were estranged, they planned to attend the conference together. He returned to Delaware on Sunday to meet up with his family ahead of the conference.

But instead of attending the conference, police say, Matthew shot and killed his entire family, and then turned the gun on himself. The family’s bodies were transported to the coroner’s office.
