Aspiring model Desiree Staperfene watched her ex-boyfriend kill her mother and current boyfriend, before turning the gun on himself, in a grisly Michigan double-murder suicide.

Brian D. White, 19, of Livonia attacked Desiree's mother and boyfriend on Wednesday morning with an axe and then shot himself in the head, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Desiree, 17, witnessed the murders that began at 7:30 a.m. before she was able to escape the jilted lover and call 911 at 12:20 p.m.

Brian turned the gun on himself and died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after he'd murdered Angela K. Staperfene, 46, and Jacob L. Burns, 19.

The preliminary investigation states that Desiree and Brian had recently ended their relationship, and Livonia mayor Jack Kirksey told the local paper that the investigation is "still a work in progress."

Angela's friend Nancy Radtke said, "If Angie had anything to do with it to defend herself, I'm sure she went out in a blaze of glory. She was a feisty person.

"Angie always wanted the best for her daughter."

Desiree was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
