Authorities now say that with the death in Riverside Hospital of Ray Lanker, 14, they may never know exactly what prompted the shooting, It took the lives of Ohio High- way Patrol Cpl. Ralph R. Lanker, 45-, his wife, Virginia Fern Lan-. ker, 36: a daughter Bea, 12; and a son, Thomas, 9. All four bodies, dressed in night clothing, were discovered in the bedroom of the parents on the second floor of their frame home in suburban Grove City. Officers said at least 14 bullets were found in the bodies. Ray fired a bullet into his tem- ple a few hours after the shoot- ing. He had been found uncon- Student Admits Shooting of 5 Brookings, S.
