FBI searched Fairport home before murder-suicide

October 05, 2017 08:35 PM

News10NBC has learned that the FBI executed a search warrant at a Fairport home shortly before a father killed his daughter before taking his own life.

Federal investigators were at 60-year-old John Beilman's house just before he shot his 27-year old daughter, Nichole and then himself in the backyard.

While we believe we know what the investigation was about, we're waiting until the official paperwork is filed with the courts before reporting the specific details.

John Beilman's wife Donna was inside the home when her husband wheeled their 27-year-old disabled daughter outside early Wednesday morning, shot and killed her with a 12-gauge shotgun and then killed himself. Donna has since told Fairport police that John made a suicidal comment about a month ago but she wasn't sure why. He hadn't recently lost his job nor had any health issues.

News10NBC has learned from law enforcement sources that a lot has happened in those last thirty days. Federal investigators visited the home. What they were looking for and whether they found it, we won't know until the official paperwork is filed, likely within the next ten days.
