Officials confirm the surviving member of a Paradise Hills family involved in an apparent murder-suicide has died.
Clarence Blunt, 55, was discovered Sunday near the bodies of his wife and two young children inside the family's home on Luther Street.
An official with the National City Police Department confirmed Blunt died early Thursday at Paradise Valley Hospital.
Lilly Blunt, 33, Linna Blunt, 3, and 7-month-old Richard Blunt were discovered dead by police officers on a welfare check requested by a family member.
According to homicide detectives, Clarence Blunt was found collapsed in the entryway of the home and appeared to have attempted suicide.
Investigators have said Lilly Blunt's death was the result of murder but have not released the cause of death for her or the children.
Court records show Blunt was convicted of murder and robbery in 1975 and served multiple prison sentences. In 1985, he was also convicted of burglary of an inhabited dwelling.
According to court documents obtained by NBC 7, Lilly claimed Clarence was abusive and the he threatened to hurt her if she filed for divorce.
The documents also show that Clarence accused Lilly of stealing pills and having drug issues.
Lilly (pictured right) filed for divorce back on August 6, citing irreconcilable differences, just days after requesting a restraining order against Clarence.
Homicide detectives told NBC 7 there were no outstanding suspects in the case.
