New reports in the case of the Florida mother who murdered her two teens have emerged.
Julie Schenecker, is alleged to have planned to kill her 13-year-old son, Beau, and her 16-year-old daughter, Calyx, as early as Jan. 22, 2011 but was forced to wait out the mandatory waiting period for purchasing the .38-caliber weapon used in the killings. This means the pre-meditation to commit the murders extends far beyond someone “snapping.”
As reported earlier, Schenecker, allegedly wrote a suicide note along with a detailed record of the murders. Until now, it has been reported that Schenecker never got around to the suicide after killing children. An anonymous source says Julie Schenecker was being treated for depression for the past 10 years, and that she took a lethal amount of medication on the day of the murders in order to carry out her suicide. Not suspecting that her mother would call police to check on the family, it is alleged that Schenecker’s suicide failed.
It is also being reported that Schenecker was not only wearing clothes soaked in the blood of her children, but that she was found unconscious by the pool, making the account of a suicide attempt very credible.
If the police officers had not gotten to the residence when they did, there probably would have been three bodies, instead of just two.
I am certain that part of Schenecker’s shock is that she survived and now has to deal with what she has done for the rest of her life.
