Did the doctor really do it?

Perhaps you read about this over the holiday weekend:
While on a vacation in Miami to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, a radiation oncologist from Alton, IL throws his two gifted children, and then himself, off the high rise balcony of a swanky hotel in the art deco district.
The doctor's father says it was an act of insanity
, but a co-worker insists the doctor was looking forward to the vacation
. The wife, who says she saw her husband jump, told police "that Edward woke up in the morning and wanted to take a shower. But [she] asked whether she could use the bathroom first." - "And that's when he did it - like he snapped."
Police are baffled, but cautious... not knowing whether to investigae it as murder-suicide, or a good ol' fashioned murder-murder-murder. "We don't want to tip our hand with these people," Hodges said. "[The wife] has contacts here locally. This may be a murder, we don't know. She's the only one alive."
