Mother, 3 Daughters Fatally Shot In Head Near St. Louis

A woman and her three young daughters have been found fatally shot in the head in rural eastern Missouri.

Names of the victims have not been released. The bodies were found early Thursday at a home near De Soto, about 45 miles south of St. Louis.

The 32-year-old woman was found dead on steps leading to the porch. The girls, ages 1, 10 and 11, were found inside a van. Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer says all four were shot in the head.

Boyer says detectives are questioning the woman's estranged boyfriend who lived at the home where the bodies were found. He says the mother had a restraining order against the boyfriend.

Boyer says detectives are also investigating the possibility of murder-suicide.

  1. This is the third murder-suicide involving a mother and her children in the St. Louis area in a very short time. This woman it is said was keeping two of her children from their father by claiming he had PTSD and therefore a judge only allowed him supervised visits. The youngest child, merely a baby, her father had a restraining order against him because she told the judge he screamed at her. It was on his porch that she took her life and the children were in a van in his driveway. He saw the van and left the property and called the police because of the restraining order. An article in our paper this morning, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, said that many women think they are helping their children when they kill them. But what I do not understand is that people knew this woman was suicidal and yet she got 2 judges to keep the kids from their fathers. There is something really wrong with that.

  2. The mother sent out emails indicating she was suicidal and appears to have recently bought the shotgun found next to her body. Looks very much like she killed the children and then herself.

  3. The United States is one violently sick country! HORRIFIC the stuff that goes on in this country.

  4. So, they are thinking the mother killed her three daughters and then committed suicide on the front steps leading to the house because...she couldn't find a better place to do it... It was her boyfirend's house. He is the perp. Detectives that are not from that area need to be called in for this investigation.
