The 53-year-old Singer was found dead of a gun shot wound.

At this point, the cause of death for his father and sister is only being described as "trauma" by Carrollton police. Autopsy results are still pending, but police say they believe both were dead before the fire.

Firefighters were called to the home just before 4 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. As they worked to put the fire out, crews found the three bodies inside.

Holy Covenant Early Childhood Development Program posted on Facebook Monday identifying Singer as a teacher at the school.

ECDP says they will hold a special gathering in honor of Singer on Thursday, Oct. 6 at 2 p.m.
