The victims’ bodies were discovered in a burning home on Northwest Fifth Street. They were identified as:

  • Bridget Gray, 52
  • Jocalyn Gray, 27
  • CorDarrian Hill, 8
  • CorDerica Hill, 6

After crews put out the fire, investigators determined the four victims had each been shot at least once.

Jordan Adam Criado, 51, was discharged from the Rogue Valley Medical Center in Medford and was immediately taken to the Jackson County Jail.

Criado was in hospital as a result of smoke inhalation in the July 18 fire and was unconscious and on a ventilator for days.

Firefighters desperately gave CPR to the
family on the lawn in front of their home, but quickly realised they
also had stab wounds.

The deaths of Mrs Paige-Criado, 30, and her
children – Elijah, 7; Isaac, 6; Andrew, 5; and Aurora, 2 — was officially listed as smoke inhalation. Stab wounds to the neck were listed as an additional cause of death for Isaac and Andrew.

An autopsy has also shown Tabasha Paige-Criado was stabbed multiple times in the neck and abdomen.

Police chief Tim George said: ‘The front yard looked like it was a plane crash or something, the people working on those folks.

Neighbours described Mr Criado a
single father, devoted to his children, who worked as a ‘shade-tree
mechanic’ – fixing cars out of his home.

Two weeks ago, they described hearing Mr Criado and his wife arguing loudly late at night.

Chris
Bennett, 23, an Oregon National Guard infantryman who lives nearby,
said: ‘He just bluntly told her “Hey, you need to calm down, the kids
are asleep”.’

Fiance Shilo Croswell, 22, added: ‘It was always her yelling. Anytime we saw him it was just him and the kids.

‘Then we saw this woman. She kept asking him who we were, and he was not responding because he was talking to us.’

Earlier on Monday, Mr Criado called police to report his wife as missing, Mr George said.

Officers found her a few blocks away at a convenience store and gave her a ride home, he added.

‘They both met and conversed. What happened between 7:30 and 9:30 in roughly a two-hour time span is what we are trying to figure out right now.’
