CNN Breaking News: Florida mom shot & killed 6-month-old son, critically wounded herself

Fri January 4, 2013

(CNN) -- A 20-year-old Florida woman was in critical condition Friday after she shot and killed her 6-month-old son and then turned the gun on herself, police said.

Authorities found Melanie Reyes and her baby after performing a welfare check at the request of Reyes' family, who called 911 to report a statement on her Facebook page in which she "indicated she was going to shoot her child and herself," according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

Both were transported to a hospital, where the infant was pronounced dead.

Police recovered the handgun believed used in the shootings from the home.

The incident comes roughly two weeks after Reyes was arrested for aggravated domestic battery after her boyfriend said she struck him with a baseball bat, according to a police report. Her next court date had been scheduled for January 22.

Wonder why she decided to post about it on Facebook?

Does everything have to be announced online today?

R12 failing to kill yourself can sometimes be a cry for attention. Facebook adds another level to that.

R13, this wasn't just someone who attempted suicide - it's not all about her. She murdered her own son, too.

Why do people keep including "Florida" in these stories. It should be assumed that any such items deal with Florida, unless otherwise stated.

We wish we could be in Florida, R15.

by Anonymousreply 1601/04/2013

R14 of course its not all about her, but she may not see it that way. Someone who does something this fucked up is not rational. If killing the boy was to spite the father, then her motives are even more selfish.
