A North Carolina man charged with impregnating his biological daughter is suspected of killing her, her adoptive father and their infant son before fatally shooting himself.
Steven Pladl, 45, was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his car about seven miles away from Dover, N.Y. on Thursday, authorities said.
Pladl is the biological father of 20-year-old Katie Pladl, who were both charged with incest. The two were parents to their 7-month old son, Bennett Pladl.
Steven Pladl’s mother called 911 to conduct a welfare check on his Knightdale, N.C. home after having a disturbing conversation with her son, Knightdale Police Chief Lawrence Capps said.

The infant was later found dead in the home Thursday.
Authorities believe Pladl killed the child before driving up to New Milford, Conn. where he fatally shot Katie, and Anthony Fusco, her adoptive dad.
Katie and Fusco, 56, were found dead in a pickup truck, cops said.

“We're trying to make sense of all the factors that led up to this senseless taking of life,” Capps said. A motive for the shootings wasn’t immediately clear.
Steven and Katie Pladl reconnected in 2016 when she moved into his home with her mother and their two kids outside of Virginia.
Steven and his wife split that year, and she told authorities her husband had been sleeping on the floor of Katie’s room. She later discovered Steven and Katie were expecting a child together.
The two fled and were arrested in North Carolina in January.
