(AUDIO ONLY)Alton Beasley was a 61 year old man who committed a murder suicide in November 2007. Investigators think alcohol was a contributing factor.
Aiken authorities said a man angry over his pending divorce, 61-year-old Alton Beasley, shot his two adult daughters to death, 47-year-old Elizabeth Beasley and 36-year-old Anna Loebsack, and a female friend of Elizabeth's, before committing suicide.
The 911 tape was released by police to the media. The audio file is graphic and includes the victims terror screams. The release of the 911 tape has sparked a debate about whether or not authorities should have distributed graphic content like this to the public.
The transcript of the Alton Beasley 911 call is here:
Victim: "I need a cop. I've been shot. 1040 Holly Lane."
911 Dispatch: "You've been shot? What's the address?"
