On July 22, 1937 (during a dark period of depression) Marie Walkup killed her 4 small children in their house on Leroux Street in Flagstaff. She then shot herself. Her husband (James D. Walkup) was in Phoenix with an NAU all-girls sports team and not home at the time.


The children were found at home the next morning by the family doctor who had been contacted on the 21st by Mrs. Walkup. She asked the doctor to stop by in the morning to check on the children. The door was unlocked, and the doctor found two children downstairs and two upstairs.


More information is available at NAU's Kline Library in the newspaper archives.
