A family of five found shot to death in their Maine apartment had moved from Arizona because of the sour economy and had financial problems, according to a relative. A detective said murder-suicide was one of the scenarios being considered by investigators. Neighbors identified the five victims discovered Sunday as Joel Smith; his wife, Heather; and their three children, ages 12, 7 and 4. Heather Smith was getting help for substance abuse, said Joel Smith’s mother, Jerys Caruthers-Thorpe, of Scottsdale, Arizona. “I know something had to have snapped because Joel never would have done that in his right mind,” she told The Associated Press.
