LEBANON, Mo. — Police are investigating a Thanksgiving tragedy today: an apparent double-murder / suicide. A mother and two of her children are dead.
Sharon Trevino, 28, is dead from a gunshot wound to the head. The kids, 5-month-old Izaiah Trevino and 5-year-old Marissa Morgan, are also dead, cause of death undetermined.
Police say Trevino shot herself in the head. They don't know how the children died, but say they were likely murdered. Those close to Trevino refuse to believe she's responsible.
"I want some answers. I want to know why," says neighbor Gabriel Bowman.
He hasn't slept all night.
"It was kind of a fiasco," says Bowman.
Around 9 pm, he heard yelling at his neighbor's house. He thought it was a fight.
"I thought another fight, because I'd heard so many fights over here before," says Bowman.
It turned out to be something much worse. Sharon Trevino's step-mother was calling police, because she'd just found Trevino, and two of her kids, dead.
