A DAD shot his two teenage daughters dead then taunted his wife on the phone: "How do you like that?"
David Kaser, 56, turned the gun on himself after slaughtering Clarissa, 19, and her sister Crystal “Grey” Kaser, 14.
Police said they "know the motive" for the family bloodbath in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, but they are not making it public.
It is understood Kaser had suffered from mental health problems in the past but there was no history of violence.
The girls' mother was at work when Kaser phoned her and threatened to kill their daughters and himself, police told the Sand Springs Leader.
At one point she heard a gunshot and then her husband asking chillingly: "How do you like that?"
The wife asked police to make a welfare check on the house at around 1pm on Tuesday.
Officers tapped on the windows and called the girls' cell phones but got no answer.
When the mother arrived she let officers into the house where they found the three dead bodies.
Kaser reportedly shot each girl once and then used the same handgun to kill himself.
His wife told investigators they had been having marital problems for months and he had made threats before, though nothing as serious.
Police went to the house in 2017 following a "domestic" incident, though no arrests were made.
Police identified the victims on Wednesday.
A statement said: "The Sand Springs Police Department would again like to send our heartfelt condolences to the family of these victims for this tragic and senseless murder of these two beautiful girls who were just beginning their lives.
"No words can express the pain this family is enduring right now."
The double murder-suicide unfolded less than a mile from an unrelated family slaughter ten days earlier.
Philip Ross, 31, stabbed his partner Staci Smith, 41, to death along with her daughters River, four, and Piper, two. He then knifed himself.
Sand Springs police said the town had been rocked by the two "senseless" tragedies.
The force said: "Today our officers are dealing with another scene of senseless violence against innocent people.
"This is so out of place for our community, that we are all trying to understand why.
"I ask that if you are in a situation in which you feel hopeless, angry or out of control, please call us and let us help you."
