But they're investigating as a homicide.
Previous shootings reported at Calabasas park where father killed
Of course something is off when a man was murdered in front of his kids. It doesn't get more off than that.

I have yet to hear of a case reported as being investigated as a homicide turn out to be something different. LE has to have a strong hunch for that to be publicized.
I know. My point is the easiest answer isn’t always the right one. Occam’s razor would say this was a suicide and we know that isn’t the case.
California man fatally shot in his tent while camping with two young daughters, police say
The sheriff’s deputies began arriving at the campsite around 5 a.m. Friday, shattering the pre-dawn quiet at Malibu Creek State Park, a popular getaway less than 30 miles west of Beverly Hills.
There, they converged on a clearing where two tents were pitched several yards from each other. Inside one of them, investigators found 35-year-old Tristan Beaudette with at least one gunshot wound to his upper torso, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
^ Post's is a thorough account for those just coming to the case
From the Washington Post article:
Beaudette was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. The Irvine, Calif., resident had been camping with other family members, but none of them were injured, they added.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Monday that it had no more details to release pending the active homicide investigation. Officials have not stated which family members were camping with Beaudette but told ABC 7 News that his wife had not gone on the trip.
Yes, the two tents in very close proximity. LE not saying which family members were also there but it reads like those members are in addition to Beaudette's two children.
LE said that the girls were in the tent with him when he was shot.
Yes: “The theory we are working with is he was shot inside the tent,” Lt. Rodney Moore told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday. “The children were inside the tent, too.”
In msm, I don't remember hearing about this as a dangerous campground lately.
This should have been public knowledge. I would not have chosen to camp there if people were reporting shots and bullets.
If the campers only took one car there, only the car owner and license for that person would be registered.
I just saw that too. I hope the girls are alright.
Is it me or does it seem like LE is being extra quiet about this one. Makes me wonder if they have their suspicions.
Name your suspect and get your money down. I'll take your word for it when we find out you're right and what happened!
"CBS Los Angeles reports that police have no suspect or motive."

Tristan Beaudette's family: "[His] life was tragically cut short by a senseless act of gun violence while on a camping trip with his two young daughters. The grief and trauma this loss has caused our close-knit family is indescribable."

Maybe LE is extra quiet because this has developed into a very delicate situation. They don't give the sense that they're looking for a stranger.
The two year old may not remember this but the four year old.... Ugh... Those poor little girls.
