This man is a monster! A mother grieves the loss of her 6-year-old daughters, who were abducted and murdered by their own dad. What would make him snap?
There is no happy ending to this story. “The girls are resting in peace and did not suffer” are the blood chilling words that poor Irina Lucidi read on February 3 about the daughters she reported missing on Jan. 30 after her husband failed to bring them home. Can you even imagine her horror, HollyMoms? Matthias Kaspar Schepp reportedly murdered his beautiful 6-year-old twin girls, Alessia and Livia, just before taking his own life.
According to Swiss police spokesperson Jean-Christophe Sauterel: “The father declared he had killed his two daughters and he was in Cerignola where he was going to kill himself” And he did. His body was discovered later that same day. He had thrown himself under at train in Italy.
This has become an international incident with police in Switzerland, France and Italy joining forces to find the girls — or more likely, their bodies. All of the focus is currently on the French island of Corsica, which is where Schepp took them via an overnight ferry from Marseille, France, on Feb. 1.
The girls’ family is obviously devastated and has no hope of ever seeing the blond beauties again. “There was never a thread of hope,” Lucidi’s cousin, Roberto Mestichelli, told the Associated Press.
Meanwhile, Schepp’s family in Switzerland insists that he must have had a breakdown because he’s always been a loving and caring father. “We are united in the certainty that our son and brother could only have committed such a terrible acts if he suffered a serious emotional breakdown,” says his family.
Breakdown or not, what he did is brutally disgusting and there’s no excuse. Our hearts go out to the girls’ mother.
