A family murder mystery

From the aged, yellowed newspaper clipping:

George Paris found dead this morning

The three sisters mentioned include my great-grandmother, who took in one of his sons. His wife, Elsa, was deaf at a time when there were no real educational opportunities and couldn't support their children. Various family members took them in. My "Uncle" George Paris, who was really my cousin, was raised with my Grandma (Velma) and Aunt Dorothy as their brother. Uncle George passed away years ago and his wife, my Aunt Pauline, is still alive along with his son and grandchildren. We'd all love to solve this mystery. It seems to me that the killer is probably dead now but maybe a surviving family member knows something.
