BLOOMINGTON, IL – A 33-year-old man strangled his two infant sons to death before setting his house on fire and hanging himself.

According to reports, Pamela Ringenberg woke up to the sound of her home’s smoke detectors going off early Tuesday morning.

She began frantically looking for her two sons, a 2-year-old and a newborn, but was unable to find them or her husband, 33-year-old Eric Ringenberg.

Frantically searching for a phone and her family, heavy smoke eventually forced her to run to a neighbor’s home to call 911. Police and firefighters arrived on the scene and were able to quickly put out the fire.

Pamela was taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation while investigators searched the house for the rest of her family. They would find Eric and the couple’s two sons dead in the basement.

Both boys had been strangled to death and Eric had apparently hanged himself.

Surveillance footage from inside the home showed Eric hiding Pamela’s cell phone and going down to the basement before the fire broke out.

There has been no reported motive behind Eric’s actions, but police are asking the public to remember that if they or someone they know is contemplating suicide or is in a mental health crisis, to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or PATH CRISIS at 211.
