This is so heartbreaking. A Kentucky nurse named Courtney Taylor has been accused of killing her two teenage daughters in their beds, according to several shocking Jan. 14 reports. She also allegedly murdered her husband. Here’s the tragic details.
A Kentucky woman named Courtney Taylor, 41, is suspected of killing her husband Larry Taylor, 51, and two daughters, Jessie, 18, and Jolee, 13, on Jan. 13. Authorities say her family was found dead inside their Williamsburg home and it’s believed the victims were murdered in their beds. The mother was shot after she allegedly pointed her gun at a police officer when he arrived on the scene, according to television station WYKT. Courtney was taken to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries. The police were first called around 10:12 pm by a relative.
Police say charges will be filed against Courtney for this heinous act. “[The relative] must’ve observed a body and retreated,” Sheriff Colan Harrell told the Lexington Herald-Leader. Two cops reportedly entered the home to investigate after receiving a call and that’s when Courtney allegedly pointed her gun at them. Sheriff Harrell said that he knew the slaughtered family, including the wife, and he finds the incident to be “unbelievable.” Colan even added how his department has never received any previous calls or warning signs that pointed to trouble at the family’s home.
The sheriff also revealed that Larry and his precious daughters were probably dead for several hours before their bodies were discovered. He claimed that it definitely seems like Courtney, a registered nurse, is responsible for the crime, but a motive still remains unknown. Family members have taken to social media to express their love for the dead girls and their dad, sharing heartwarming photos of Larry, as well as Jessie and Jolee. We hope justice is found soon.
