Elementary School Teacher Fatally Shoots 2 Children Before Killing Herself in Apparent Double Murder-Suicide

A South Carolina woman and her two children were found fatally shot on Wednesday in what is being investigated as a double-murder suicide.

The Sun News reported that Horry County police officers performing a welfare check at a Carolina Forest home the discovered bodies of Laura Moberley, 42, Eric Moberley, 11, and Emily Moberley, 8. The mother was a reading loss interventionist at Carolina Forest Elementary School.

A police report identified Laura as the “suspect” in the apparent double murder-suicide. Investigators believe the shooting occurred hours before the welfare check, according to WYFF.

WMBF reported that cops forced entry into the Moberleys’ home after nobody answered the door. It is not immediately known who requested the welfare check that led to the grisly discovery.

The incident remains under investigation.
