A Michigan woman shot and killed her three young daughters in the woods on Monday before driving the bodies back to her home and killing herself, police said.
Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young, with the Kent County Sheriff’s Department, said Wednesday that the deaths of Alaina Rau, 2, Cassidy Rodery, 6, and Kyrie Rodery, 8, have been classified as homicides by the medical examiner’s office. The death of their mother, 28-year-old Aubrianne Moore, was ruled a suicide, WOOD reported.
Police believe they’ve accurately mapped out the events that led to Monday’s deaths. They say it started with Moore picking up her two oldest girls from school around noon.
After stopping for lunch, LaJoye-Young said, Moore took all three girls to their great-grandparents’ property in Solon Township, shooting them behind the home using her boyfriend’s bolt-action hunting rifle, WOOD reported.
Moore is said to have put the bodies in her car before driving to her boyfriend’s home and turning the gun on herself. All four bodies were discovered around 4 p.m.
No note was left, but investigators say that Moore had grappled with mental health problems. More
I think the system failed these innocent children. The mother was showing signs of being psychotic, they should’ve monitored her more closely. Three beautiful children paid the ultimate price.
Why did she have custody after having such severe mental health issues and being in a mental hospital? Some family court judge dropped the ball big time and should be held accountable for that mistake in judgment.
Why do people insist on taking their kids with them when they commit such a selfish act?
We don’t allow dangerous people or those with Mental Health problems possess firearms but somehow believe the same people should be allowed to have children?
