A Michigan woman shot her three young daughters in the woods on Monday for the control of the bodies back to her house and killing himself, police said.

Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young, with the Kent County Sheriff’s Department, said Wednesday that the death of Alaina Rau, 2, Cassidy Rodery, 6, and Kyrie Rodery, 8, have been classified as homicides by the medical examiner’s office. The death of their mother, 28-year-old Aubrianne Moore, was ruled as a suicide, WOOD reported.

Police believe they have accurately mapped the events that led to Monday’s deaths. They say that it started with Moore picking up her two oldest girls from school around noon.

After stopping for lunch, LaJoye-Young said Moore took all three girls to their great-grandparents’ real estate in Solon Township, they shoot behind the house with the help of her boyfriend bolt-action shotgun, WOOD reported.

Moore is said to have the bodies in her car for the drive to her boyfriend at home and turning the gun on himself. All four bodies were discovered around 4 p.m.

No note was left, but the researchers say that Moore had struggled with mental health issues.

According to Newaygo County Probate Court records obtained by WYFF, a social worker asked that Moore be included in the hospital back in September, because she was reportedly paranoid, and suffering visual and auditory hallucinations.

“Aubrianne is keeping her children home from school, because the television told her there would be a school bus accident today,” the social worker wrote. “Aubrianne stays awake at night believing people will break into her house. Aubrianne eat not to believe food is poisoned.”

The social worker continues: “I believe that the person with a mental illness and, as a result of that mental illness of the individual reasonably can be expected that in the near future to intentionally cause serious injury to themselves or others, and has been guilty of an act or acts or significant threats that are substantially supportive of this expectation.”

Data showed that Moore was hospitalized for 10 days at a Grand Rapids psychiatric hospital.

LaJoye-Young said that the murder-suicide may have been a result of Moore in the assumption that she “was the protection of the children of something,” cites the writings suggestive of that notion.

Educators confirmed that Kyrie was a third-grader at Sand Lake Elementary, and her sister Cassidy was a first-grader at MacNaughton Elementary, Fox 17 reported.
