Becky,
The article assiduously avoids mention of the word "stepmother." She could be.
She COULD also be their mother but using her maiden name.
The article DID say "his" children, but that could be the author's sloth, ignorance....or the truth by omission.

Authorities said that after police were called to the Branscum home before 2 a.m., officers saw Amanda Branscum lying in the road uninjured; the father and children were found dead inside the house.

I wonder who made THIS call to the police to the Branscum jome before 2 A.M. The article doesn't say.
It SUGGESTS that someone in the neighborhood saw or heard something from the Branscum home that would warrent him/her calling the police at two in the morning.

Sounds like it might have been a repeat performance for the police visit.

Maybe Anita called them before she collapsed uninjured on the sidewalk.

Lots of holes to be filled in this article.
