Rene Ogden and twins Olivia and Chase ID'd in CO Springs deaths: Was she depressed?
The Colorado Springs Police Department has confirmed that Rene Ogden and twins Olivia and Chase died in their home on Monday -- but not much else. Husband Tommy Ogden is reportedly cooperating with police, but nothing has been ruled out -- neither an intruder homicide nor murder-suicide. Meanwhile, one source suggests that Rene may have been depressed.

According to a piece in the Colorado Springs Gazette, Brad Ake got to know Rene through her Facebook page. (At this writing, the page lists only one friend -- and it's not Ake.) He says they often played online games such as Farmville and Vampire Wars. "She was sad most of the time," Ake told the Gazette, suggesting that she felt unappreciated by Tommy. He added that Chase was autistic.
