BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- A 2-year-old is recovering after his mother drowned his 4-year-old sister, attempted to drown him and then shot herself while making a 911 call, Glynn County police said.
Police said 21-year-old Julia Murray dialed 911 Tuesday morning and told the operator she had drowned her children. She then told the operator she had just shot herself.
Officers found Murray lying near a revolver in one room, and the still-wet bodies of her son and daughter in their bedroom, county Police Chief Matt Doering said.
Police Capt. Marissa Tindale told The Florida Times-Union the girl, Ansli, and boy, Creighton, were found next to each other in bed.
Mother and daughter were pronounced dead at a Brunswick hospital. Tindale said Creighton was in stable condition and is expected to recover.
Doering said the evidence is consistent with Murray's 911 call. It appears to be a homicide, attempted homicide and a suicide," Doering said.
He said the revolver recovered by Murray's body belonged to the family and appears to be the one used in the shooting.
Murray offered no explanation for what she did in the 911 call, and no note or other message had been found, Tindale said.
