    A neighbor told 10News that Jason and Julie Harper live at the home. The identity of the person killed has not yet been confirmed.

    According to court records in North County, a woman by the name of Julie Harper filed for divorce from Jason Harper on Aug. 2. It is unknown at this time if it is the same couple.

    i'm really curious about both vehicles being listed as she "might" be driving one of them... wouldn't they know which one was missing from the home? unless both cars were missing... makes me think there was more than one adult in the home at the time of the murder.

    the news article has been updated:

    According to court records in North County, Julie Harper filed for divorce from Jason Harper on Aug. 2. A court date was scheduled for Sept. 18.

    In the documents, Julie stated she was currently a stay-at-home mom and worked occasionally from home. She listed herself as a realtor from 2005 to 2007.
    She also stated that her husband was frequently angry, had a difficult time controlling his anger and used profanity. She went on to say the “respondent has become violent with me by pushing me, showing me, grabbing my arm and twisting my wrists.”

    Julie also claimed in the divorce documents that her husband had completely cut her off financially.

    I also question the release saying that it's either one or the other car. Kids are too young to drive, so it has to be that both cars are missing; which implies more than one driver, of course.

    Also, I note no Amber alert has been issued, which means they suspect the mom is the one who has taken the kids. I suppose it could be a case of "I'm leaving" and then hubby suicides...

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    i was thinking suicide too, but in all the articles i've read, LE is saying they're treating it as a homicide. i'd think if it was suicide, they would find evidence to reflect that. to me, it sounds like either Julie had another adult with her, or maybe they had been out last night and drove home in just one car (maybe alcohol played a part in this?) and things escalated when they got home. im so worried about the kids!!

    Initial reports indicate that Jason was a math teacher at Carlsbad High School.

    Suzette Lovely, superintendent of Carlsbad Unified School District, has issued a statement stating that she has received unconfirmed reports that an employee "may have been a victim in the incident."

    "We are in close communication with the Carlsbad Police Department concerning a death in the community," said Lovely. "We are awaiting confirmation and further details from officials in law enforcement. As information becomes available, we will be sharing this with our staff and community."

    Apparently this link was updated because it now says Julie Harper has been arrested on suspicion of homicide. She and her three children were located in Scripps Ranch.
