FixedIt: “Death of a family”, or pre-meditated murder of woman and children?

Murderers who also kill themselves are still murderers.

Why is an otherwise thorough report of the murder of a woman and her children, including detailed evidence of her intention to divorce him, run under a headline about the “death of the Manrique-Lutz family”?

All the evidence laid out in the article shows Fernando Manrique planned the murder after Maria Lutz told him she wanted a divorce. That’s not the death of the family, it’s pre-meditated murder of a woman and children.
