NEW YORK – A grandmother shot and killed her 2 years and 6 months old grandchildren before turning the gun on herself, according to the Associated Press.
Debra Denison reportedly pulled both her grandchildren from the kinder garden, placed them in their car seats, drove to a remote area in New York and shot both children and herself dead.
Police have already confirmed the incident is registered as a double murder and suicide.
The bodies of Debra Denison (47), Alton Perry (2) and Ashton Perry (6 months) were found in Denison’s car parked parked in the neighborhood of Lake of Isles in Preston, Connecticut.
Denison’s family has since released a statement saying Debra suffered from bipolar disorder and had a history of psychiatric evaluations.
Debra removed the children from the daycare saying it was Alton’s birthday. He would have turned 2 years old yesterday.
Brenda Perry, the mother of the boys, was shocked when she heard the news. She said: “Alton would have been at home playing with his presents. It would have been a great day.”
She added: “My boys are now at a fantastic place. We got two angels watching over us now. I love you Alton and Ashton.”
Police are still looking for a motive why Debra Denison took the lives of her two grandsons.
