GARLAND, Texas ― Neither a Sachse family nor Garland police know what motivated a father to shoot his 10-year-old son and then commit suicide. Their bodies were found Friday morning near Firewheel Golf Park in Garland.

Police say they may never know why 37-year-old Matthew Knapp, an outwardly stable family man with no known legal or medical issues, would suddenly turn a gun on his son, 10-year-old Brody, and then kill himself.
