Quadruple Murder

November 22nd, 2010 by flanews

Police are trying to track down the person or persons who brutally murdered a family of four. The bodies of a mother and her three kids were found Saturday morning in their Tallahassee home. As Whitney Ray tells us, the grieving process is underway for students who went to school with the young victims.

Gabrielle Emery lost a neighbor, and her three kids lost playmates after someone brutally murdered a family of four in their Tallahassee neighborhood.

“It’s a tragedy. It kind of shakes me up and makes me protect my kids a little more,” said Gabrielle.

It’s still too early in the investigation for police to talk about what happened in this home over the weekend, but some officers say it’s the most gruesome crime scene they’ve ever witnessed.

Monday forensic investigators from Georgia assisted Tallahassee police, looking for fingerprints and DNA. A recent string of burglaries in the area suggest a random attack, but investigators say there were no signs of forced entry leading them to believe the victims knew the killer.

“We are not sure exactly how they got into the house or was this someone who was known to the family,” said McCranie.

A Facebook page memorializes victims Brandi Peters, her three year old son and twin six year old girls.

And the news of the murders reached the twins kindergarten classes Monday morning where administrators were prepared with grief councilors. The classes flipped through a photo album of the girls and drew pictures in remembrance.

“Our psychologist explained to them this morning that the girls were going to heaven and they started talking about their animals that were in heaven and other relatives so they understand that they are gone and they will not be coming back,” said Pam Hightower, the principal at Bond Elementary.

And while the community grieves, the long arm of the law is searching for clues to find out who would have attacked this defenseless family just days before Thanksgiving.

Tallahassee Police need help tracking down Peters’ extended family. They’re asking anyone who knew 27 year old Brandi Peters to call them at 891-4200.
