WARNING: THE FOLLOWING 911 PHONE CALL MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ALL AUDIENCES
In fact… it made me cry as I listened to the phone calls from the daughters. The Katy, TX police have released the horrifying calls to 911 from the day Christy Sheats shot her daughters in cold blood. It’s reported that the County Sheriff’s Office has visited the Sheats home over a dozen times in the past 4 years. 3 of those calls were for suicide attempts by Christy Sheats who was a known drinker and had been suffering from depression for years.
On this occasion the mom had called a family meeting on her husband Jason Sheats birthday. During the meeting Christy Sheats held up a gun and shot their 2 daughters, Madison and Taylor. Instead of a birthday party Christy decided to give her husband birthday revenge because he wanted her to stop seeing her boyfriend:
“Mr. Sheats stated Christy knew how much he loved Taylor and Madison and how much they loved him,” Sheriff Troy Neels said in a press conference on Wednesday, June 29. “By killing his children, Mr. Sheats will have to live the rest of his life with this horrible memory.
The first 911 call was made by 17-yr-old Madison Sheats screaming as her father pleads and tries to make deals with his wife to not shoot the girls; that is the most heartbreaking part of it all. The second call was made by 22-yr-old Taylor Sheats who tells the operator she was shot. After the shooting started the father and daughters tried to make their escapes from crazed mother and wife:
“Jason Sheats and both daughters managed to get out of the house house by going through the front door,” sheriff’s office said Monday in the press release.
Once they got outside 17-yr-old Madison fell and died. The husband, Jason ran to the down the street to call from the neighbors. When the 22-yr-old daughter, Taylor ran into the street, Christy Sheats followed to shoot Taylor again. 911 call #4, neighbor said Christy Sheats then went back inside to reload the gun. She returned and shot her daughter Taylor once more.
The police arrived hiding behind trees and behind cars telling Christy to put the gun down. Instead she walked toward one of the bodies and that’s where she was shot dead by police officers to put her terrible rampage to a stop. It was lucky that the police officers arrived armed so quickly. I hate to imagine how that rampage would have continued if no one else was armed to stop the 42-yr-old mother.
Christy Sheats and Madison Sheats were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Taylor Sheats was taken by a medical helicopter to a local hospital, where she later died.
The murder weapon recovered from the scene of the crime was a five-shot .38 caliber handgun.
LISTEN BELOW to the frightening calls (it’s about 8 minutes but very engaging).
