A Canadian man appears to have confessed to killing his wife, daughter and sister on Facebook before killing himself.

Randy Janzen posted the chilling message on Thursday and people who saw the message contacted police in British Columbia.

It began with Janzen explaining that his 19-year-old daughter suffered from depression caused by 'excruciating migraines' before the post took a dark turn.

"Emily had tried everything to get better but nothing seemed to help her. I took a gun and shot her in the head and now she is migraine free and floating in the clouds on a sunny afternoon, her long beautiful brown hair glowing in the breeze, a true angel," Janzen said.

He then went on to explain that he killed his wife as "a mother should never have (to) hear the news her baby has died."

Finally, Janzen said that he killed his sister Shelly a few days later "because I did not want her to have to live with this shame I have caused all alone".

Police went to the house, finding one body, before finding Janzen holed up at a second address.

Four hours after the police arrived, the house caught fire and it is thought that Janzen was inside.

According to the Huffington Post, Janzen's chilling Facebook message ended like this;

"Now my family is pain free and in heaven. I have great remorse for my actions and feel like the dirt that I am. I am taking full responsibility for my actions of these murders. So sorry to anyone I have hurt. Rest in peace my little family. Love Daddio xoxo."
