'We're kind of in shock because we're really friendly with them,' Brian Covenko told the station.

'We know them on a personal level, our kids hang together, we talk all the time.'

Neighbors said they had never noticed any problems with the family before.

Heather Cruz told DailyMail.com that Edwards was an 'incredible friend and mother'.

Edwards' brother, William Burton, posted on Facebook that he was 'numb, heartbroken, and angry beyond belief'.

'Tonight heaven gained four angels, my sister Julie Burton Edwards, nephew Jacob, nephew Paxton, and niece Brinley,' he wrote.

'Please pull your loved ones close, hold them tight and enjoy the moment, you don't know how many more there will be.'
