Florida mother hangs herself after killing her two kids

It would appear that a 34-year-old woman in Florida has killed her two children and then hung herself from a ceiling fan, committing suicide–this according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. The two murders and the suicide took place in the family’s home.

After receiving a call for help, deputies responded to a house in unincorporated Clearwater, Florida, just after 2 a.m.  The deputies found Dawn Brown and her two children, 5 and 9 years old, dead in the house.

The sheriff’s office said that they believe that Brown killed her two children before hanging herself using an electrical cord from a bedroom ceiling fan.

The details of the children’s deaths were not revealed. The sheriff’s office said that the cause of death for the children will be released after an autopsy is performed. At this time authorities did not offer a possible motive for the killings.
