More tragic details have emerged about the mother who shot her daughters in cold blood on June 24. A family friend revealed on June 28 that Christy Sheats wanted to ‘punish’ her husband Jason by killing their kids. We have the details, right here.
This is unbelievable. It’s hard to imagine why a mother would take the lives of both of her children, but the most terrible motive possible is what a family friend revealed might have been Christy Sheats’. On June 28, they said she simply wanted to “punish” her husband Jason on his birthday. Here’s what we know.
On June 24 we learned that the lives of two beautiful young girls, Madison, 17, and Taylor, 22, had been cut short by their deranged mother, who shot them both dead on their father’s birthday. What we didn’t know was why she had done something so terrible to her own children. A friend of the family, Madison Davey finally gave KTRK-TV some insight on June 28.
While Christy pointed a gun at the family, Madison D. revealed what happened. “He (Jason) told Christy, ‘Just shoot yourself. Make it easy on all of us, just shoot yourself,’ and she said, ‘No, that’s not what this is about, this is about punishing you.'”
Madison D. always knew something was off with Christy. “I always knew something would happen,” she explained. “I never thought she would do this. Christy was toxic for the family. She was mentally unstable.” In a new 911 call revealed on June 28, Jason can be heard apologizing for some unknown offense, begging her not to shoot his daughters and saying “I’ll promise you whatever you want!” We still don’t know the exact motive behind the attack, but Christy had a history of mental illness, and may have believed he did something wrong.
