A woman has lost her mind in Tampa, Florida. Julie Powers Schenecker was arrested for shooting her two teenage children Calyx Powers Schenecker,16, and Powers Beau Schenecker, 13. They were “allegedly” shot and killed by their mother on Thursday, for “misbehaving”. The 50-year-old, Schenecker, was arrested on Friday after the police were called to her house where they found her on the back porch covered in blood. It was reported that the POLICE were so upset at the bloody scene, they had to receive counseling.According to the reports, as she drove her son to soccer practice he was causing a disturbance in the back seat, so she pulled over and shot him twice in the head. Upon returning home Julie went to her daughter’s room and shot her in the face as she sat at her computer.
During her arrest, Schenecker told police that she shot them for “being mouthy”. The premeditation of these murders was a letter written by Schenecker saying “they talked back and were mouthy and that she was going to take care of it”. Her son’s body was found the next day, still in the SUV that was parked in the garage and her daughter was found on the floor of her bedroom.
Schenecker’s mother called the police from Texas, after not being able to contact her daughter and told them she suffering from depression. The police then notified the father, Parker Schenecker, who had been away for a few days in Qatar, for his military work. He was so shaken the police had to calm him after relaying the news.
Schenecker has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. Shooting both children with a .38-caliber pistol. Investigators think the teens “never saw it coming” which means they probably died instantly. This is not yet confirmed.
They apparently were a “model family” so neighbor’s were shocked to hear the news. So now what? Do we go back to allowing parents to whip their kids in public without calling the police? Would this ensure it does not get to this point. Are guns still a good idea to let citizen’s carry? Not sure, but I know she must have been at wit’s end to kill her kids.
