On July 16, 1998, Reginald Sublet, a twice-fired Texas police officer living in Montana herded his ex-girlfriend, their son and two others into a closed garage and started a car, killing everyone, including himself.

Police said they found the body of Reginald Sublet, 34, leaning inside the open door of a car on his knees, a gun in his hand. His ex-girlfriend, Rosalind Tramble, 33, was bound on the floor and had severe head wounds. Her husband, Michael Tramble Jr., 32, was found bound and gagged inside the trunk of a car.

Police found two boys, 12-year-old Reginald Sublet Jr. and Michael Tramble III, inside another vehicle. Michael was strapped in; Reginald was slumped in the back. Sublet, the husband and the two boys apparently all died of carbon-monoxide poisoning, while Mrs. Tramble probably died of a combination of poisoning and head wounds.

The killings came just a month after Sublet was released from a Texas jail, where he spent five months for failing to pay child support. Sublet joined the Dallas police force in 1989 and was fired in 1995 for being absent without leave and making false statements to internal investigators, Dallas Sgt. Jim Chandler said. The firing was overturned on appeal.

Sublet was fired again in March after failing to submit medical documentation to back up claims that job-related stress was making him sick.

Fired police officer kills family, self

Ottawa Citizen

July 17, 1998

BALLWIN, MO (AP) ó A twice-fired Texas police officer fighting his ex-girlfriend for custody of their son herded them and two others into a closed garage and started a car, killing everyone, including himself.  Police on Tuesday found the body of Reginald Sublet, 34, leaning inside the open door of a car on his knees, a gun in his hand.

His ex-girlfriend, Rosalind Tramble, 33, was bound on the floor and had severe head wounds.  Her husband, Michael Tramble Jr., 32, was found bound and gagged inside the trunk of a car.  Police found two boys, 12-year-old Reginald Sublet Jr. and Michael Tramble III, who would have turned two on Tuesday, inside another vehicle.  Michael was strapped in; Reginald was slumped in the back.  Sublet, the husband and the two boys apparently all died of carbon-monoxide poisoning, while Rosalind Tramble probably died of a combination of poisoning and head wounds, a medical examiner said.

Investigators believe that Sublet went to the house and encountered the husband and the toddler on Friday night.  Mrs. Tramble returned home later with the 12-year-old, who had performed that evening in a youth chorus production.  After a struggle that left blood splattered on the floor and furniture overturned, Sublet tied up the two adults and got everyone into the garage, police Lieut. Jon Belmar said.  At least one of the two vehicles in the garage had been started.  Though Subletís gun had been fired once, no one was shot, investigators said.

The killings came just a month after Sublet was released from a Texas jail, where he spent five months for failing to pay child support.  Sublet joined the Dallas police force in 1989 and was fired in 1995 for being absent without leave and making false statements to internal investigators, Dallas Sgt. Jim Chandler said.  The firing was overturned on appeal.  Sublet was fired again in March after failing to submit medical documentation to back up claims that job-related stress was making him sick.
