McLEAN, VIRGINIA - Fairfax County police have arrested 35-year-old Megan Hargan and charged her with the 2017 deaths of her sister and mother, which she staged to look like a murder-suicide. When Helen Hargan, 23, and her mother, Pamela Hargan, 63, were found dead in their home in July 2017, police initially reported the deaths as a murder-suicide. One was found with a gun by her side inside of a bedroom, while the other was found with shell casings around her body inside the laundry room. However, authorities said detectives realized the crime scene had been altered. Megan Hargan was arrested Friday morning in Monongalia County, West Virginia. Police declined to elaborate on evidence that might link Megan to the crime.
"We have arrested 35-year-old Megan Hargan for the murders of her sister Helen Hargan and mother Pamela Hargan in 2017. She was taken into custody this morning in West Virginia. Detectives are currently interviewing her. More details at our 1:30 news conference," tweeted the Fairfax County Police.
