So tragic. A South Carolina mom horrifically killed her two innocent children while they slept in their bedrooms, before turning the gun on her husband. She planned on killing herself, but said she couldn’t bring herself to do it.

Suzanna Simpson, 35, admitted to authorities that she shot and killed her son Sawyer, 5, and daughter Carly, 7, on May 14 while they were slept in their beds. She also shot her husband in cold blood before fleeing her family home in a pickup truck and crashing the vehicle.

Suzanna Simpson Admits: I Shot My Whole Family

The South Carolina mom was found inside her pickup truck after it crashed around 6 a.m. on May 14 in Pickens County, South Carolina. When first responders arrived on the scene, she made a shocking confession:

“OK, OK, I shot my whole family,” Suzanna revealed.

Authorities then rushed to her family home to and stumbled onto a horrific scene —  her two young kids dead were lying dead in their beds. Her husband Michael had also been shot in the head, and is still recovering in the hospital, according to the Daily Mail. 

Suzanna Simpson: I Couldn’t Shoot Myself

The deranged mother revealed to a nurse in the hospital that the murder of all of her family members was originally part of a murder-suicide plot that went awry.

“I shot my kids, then my husband and tried to shoot myself several times but couldn’t do it,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.

Pickens County Sheriff Rick Clark said authorities are still investigating the gruesome crime, but don’t have a motive yet. “‘I can tell you honestly that we have no idea at this time,” he said during a news conference, according to the Daily Mail.

Such a tragedy. Our thoughts are with their family during this difficult time.

This woman obviously was suffering from some sort of mental instability, depression or otherwise. Depression is very serious and affects many people who probably don’t even realize it. It is quite sad that this is how it often ends. My heart goes out to this family.

She had the courage to kill her children…But couldnt kill herself? How about put her in bed and make her lie there waiting to be shot…then shoot her. She deserves it.
