Chris Moyer Murderer: Why Did He Kill His Family?

Chris Moyer Murderer

Chris Moyer’s family murder was a tragic event that occurred in 2011.  Christopher Moyer of Warrington, Pennsylvania, killed his family and then killed himself by letting a train run through him.

After telling the police about murdering his family, he left the house and committed suicide.

By the time the cops showed up, Christopher Moyer had already left the residence. 

His body was discovered beside the SEPTA tracks in Hatboro about three hours later. He had been waiting for the train that would kill him by resting his head on a rail.

Even today, the family and friends are still troubled by the mystery of why the person did these atrocities.

How did he kill his family?

Before killing himself, Christopher Moyer killed his wife, Irina Geller Moyer, and their son, Dillon.

While they were sleeping, he killed them both by hitting them with a baseball bat.

The 7-year-old child was found in another bedroom, and the 39-year-old wife’s body was found in the bathroom next to the main bedroom during the inquiry.

The police investigation

Chris Moyer informed the police about the death of his wife and son, and the investigation began shortly.

Police from Warrick, Warminster, and Warrington encircled the man’s residence in the 100 block of Redstone Drive. 

Police held off on going into the residence because they weren’t sure if the caller was still there. When they arrived, they found the suspected murderer and the two dead victims inside.

The blooded bat was next to the child, and there was no indication of resistance, so the officers concluded they were both asleep when Christopher killed them.

Shortly after, Moyer’s body was found on the railway track, along with other goods and around $1300 in his pocket.

Police say a 44-year-old Warrington man killed his wife and son with a baseball bat before turning himself in on Friday night. 

He reportedly laid in front of a train to commit suicide, according to the officials. According to the police, the man reported the crime to 911 around 9:40 p.m. 

He informed the 911 operator that he discovered his wife and son died from blunt trauma, and Chris said yes when the operator inquired if he did it.

The operator noted the caller’s kind tone and the fact that he said thank you during the conversation.

At 1.00 in the morning, Montgomery County police were called to a report of a dead on train tracks in Hatboro. The vehicle of the 911 caller was found close by. 

The individual appears to have placed his head on the train track while waiting for it to arrive, according to the police.

A typed note containing relatives’ names and contact information was found inside the family home. 

Investigators found indications that the family was having money problems.

The Moyers’ financial difficulties are the only cause that investigators have been able to pinpoint. 

As there is no one to prosecute, the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office stated that there would be no additional investigation into the double murder-suicide that occurred on Redstone Drive in Warrington on Friday night.
