So tragic! The Texas mom who shot dead her two daughters wanted her estranged husband to suffer living a life without his beloved girls. Keep reading for new details Jason Sheats has told police about why wife Christy opened fire on their own children.
Just devastating! Jason Sheats, 45, has told Texas police that his late wife Christy, 42, murdered the couple’s beautiful daughters in cold blood because she wanted to make him “suffer.” This heartbreaking detail comes as new information has come to light about the Texas mom’s disturbed mental state that contributed to the unbelievably shocking act.
Christy had called a family feeling to presumably discuss the couple’s marriage problems and likely divorce, according to Jason. But that’s when instead she whipped out a gun and shot their daughters Taylor, 22, and Madison, 17. The harrowing tragedy was caught on 911 tapes that were released June 28, where the girls were heard screaming in terror while Jason begged Christy to put down the gun and not shoot them.
Now Jason has revealed to police that Christy “wanted him to suffer,” by murdering their precious daughters, who were incredibly close to their dad. To add to the pain, Christy committed the heinous crime on Jason’s birthday. After the girls were shot, Jason and his daughters ran out of their house to escaped crazed Christy, but Madison collapsed and died in the street. Taylor was lying on the ground injured while Christy went back into the house, reloaded her weapon and came back and killed her. Christy died after police officers fired on her for not dropping her weapon, leaving Jason the only surviving family member.
Jason has now revealed to police that his wife “suffered from depression and anxiety and had attempted to commit suicide three times. She also had been treated at three different private mental health facilities in the past four years.” He also said his wife was taking several medications to cope with her depression and anxiety and said the couple had discussed divorce.
HollywoodLifers, do you think the divorce discussion pushed Christy over the edge to kill her daughters?
