What a tragic day. Madison and Taylor Sheats, the daughters of the Texas mom who were brutally gunned down, have been laid to rest in private funeral for friends in family in Decatur, Alabama on July 2. Read the sad details here.
This is still so difficult to come to terms with. Madison, 17, and Taylor Sheats, 22, were laid to rest at the Limestone Memorial Gardens in Athens, Alabama on July 2 in front of their devastated dad, Jason Sheats, 45, and his fiancé Juan Sebastian Lugo, 23, in a moving funeral service, which has you questioning how on earth this happened in the first place. Click down for the heartbreaking details.
The funeral took place after visitation was held for close family and friends at the Shelton Funeral Home in Decatur from 12pm-2pm. That was proceeded by a celebration of life ceremony, the second that was held for Madison and Taylor after a separate service on July 1.
On June 24, Taylor and Madison were shot by their mother Christy Sheats, 42, after an explosive argument spilled into the streets in the Houston suburb of Fulshear. According to the police report, Christy shot her daughters with a .38 Caliber handgun. Both Taylor and Madison tried to run for their lives, but Madison collapsed, dying outside her mother’s home. Christy then chased down Taylor to shoot her. Police arrived on the scene and shot Christy after she refused to drop her weapon.
As for the funeral for Christy, where that is or has been held hasn’t been confirmed yet. It wasn’t held at the Shelton Funeral Home, and plans for that have been kept quiet.
At least the girls have been put to the rest now, and both the father Jason and Madison’s fiancé Juan can be allowed to grieve privately. It’s just so, so sad.
