A tragic family story in Georgia — authorities said a Filipina wife allegedly killed her husband and then herself, while her two children were nearby.
According to the Forsyth County sheriff’s office, 32-year old Jackielyn Belangel Brewster allegedly murdered her husband, 50-year old Adrian Brewster, sometime over the weekend before taking her own life on Monday.
On August 20th, deputies arrived at the couple’s home in North Forsyth County, Georgia after a friend of the family called 911 for a welfare check at the house.
Authorities then found the lifeless bodies of Adrian and Jackielyn. Cause of death for the couple is being withheld pending autopsy results.
Two children were found inside the house at the time. The 9-year old was Jackielyn’s child, and the 3-year old was the couple’s. Both are staying with family members.
Friends of Jackielyn claimed she was a victim of domestic violence. They have created a GoFundMe page with a goal of raising 10 thousand dollars to bring her body back home to the Philippines.
