* Another GenderFlip version paired this with IfICantHaveYou. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitter_Blood Susie Newsom]] divorced her husband Tom Lynch and took up with her ''cousin'' Fritz Klenner. When Tom filed for custody of their two sons because of the incestuous relationship (and among other things, Klenner was a fraud practicing medicine though he'd never even been to college, as well as a virulent racist), Fritz and Susie began killing people who could support Tom either financially or personally--his mother and sister as well as ''her'' parents and grandmother. When the cops came to confront the pair, they grabbed the boys and took off in their SUV. After a 15-minute chase, Susie detonated a bomb located under her seat, destroying the car and killing them all.

** In a particularly cruel real-life TwilightZoneTwist, when the abandoned List home burned down the year after the murders, investigators found an antique stained glass ceiling that was worth more than enough money to solve the family's financial problems, at least in the short term, making the deaths especially pointless.

His primary motive is believed by authorities to be the significant debt which he'd acquired (and hid from his wife and kids) due to failed business ventures and providing himself and his family a lifestyle that was generally living way above and beyond his means. As of March 2016, he has yet to be found.
