Mother Committed Suicide After Murdering Her Handicapped Daughter
‘Ere come di hotstepper…
A mother fatally shot her wheelchair-bound teenage daughter before turning the gun on herself in an alleged murder-suicide.
Police were alerted to the incident after the woman’s boyfriend, 35, returned home from work and found both her and her 16-year-old daughter dead around 10.30pm on Friday.
A note written by the mother, 36, – named by neighbors Sarah Cieslikowski – was found by police at the house in Bonney Lake, Washington.
Patsy Warner, a neighbour, said that she often heard the two arguing in the garden when the school bus arrived but could not believe what had happened.
‘I can’t comprehend it. I just can’t,’ she told King 5 News.
‘Even though she was a handful, I’m sure, I can’t comprehend that.’
Ed Troyer, Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman, said that although the police investigation was ongoing a murder-suicide was likely.
He said: ‘There’s nothing to tell us any different at this point.’
Sad, sad, sad…
