(Newser) – A mother and her three young daughters were found shot to death near a Missouri campground in what police believe was a triple murder-suicide. Each was killed by a single gunshot, and the weapon was found near the bodies, according to police. The four were not staying at the Bourbon campground, but the mother's vehicle was found nearby. They were identified as 37-year-old Christine Adewunmi, and daughters Lauren, 8, Samantha, 6, and Kate, 3. Christine's husband and the father of the girls reported them missing last week, according to KMOX-TV. "There was no indication of any problems," a neighbor told Fox2.

Rammrodd- That is a really dumb comment. Those girls wanted the chance to live, I'm sure, even in the horrible USA! Moms, kill yourselves if you want to but leave your children alone.

The poor mother despaired at the thought of her lovely daughters living in a profane, depraved, misogynistic society like the USA.
