Chilling Suicide Notes Penned By Mum Who Shot Her Two Young Children Before Turning Gun On Herself

These are the chilling words written in suicide notes by a mother who shot her two young children before turning the gun on herself.

Jessica Edens, shot her children Harper, five, and Hayden, nine - as well as her ex's girlfriend Meredith Rahme who she shot in her car on the third floor of an apartment parking area.

She then turned the gun on herself on July 13 after writing suicide notes to her estranged husband Ben, her parents and her sister.

In one of her final letters, Edens, 36, wrote: "Everyone you love is gone. Do you hear. I'm about to be gone too."

Police have released the notes nearly a month after the Edens carried out the horrific shootings in Greenville, South Carolina, reports Greenville Online .


Another note, directed at her parents and sister, read: "For my parents and sister: I am so sorry for the pain I am causing all of you.

"You've always been there for me and I love you all so much.

"I know what I have done is selfish, but I cannot live with this pain any longer.

"I just cannot handle it. It is too much. It hurts too much. I will no longer be in pain and my children will no longer hurt either.

"I am so sorry. I love you all."

Another note left to her ex husband said: "You have caused me more pain than I’ve ever been in in my life.

You have caused my children pain. I hope you rot one day for what you have done to me and my kids.

"You can no longer hurt us. We are at peace. I hope you live with pain and shame and guilt for the rest of your life."

According to a police report, Edens had become "distraught" after family court proceedings a week before the shootings.

The bodies of Edens and her two children were found in a Jeep on the Greenville-Pickens motorway.

Sherriff Rick Clark said: "As we struggle to understand how a parent could possibly come to a decision such as this, we have to focus on tomorrow and the opportunity to provide services and solutions to those that feel that their life and the lives of their loved ones must end in order to find peace.
