A Heartbreaking Memorial For Teens Allegedly Murdered By Mother
Tears flowed at the memorial service for two teen siblings who were allegedly murdered by their own mother in a case that still shocks the nation. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
The U.S. Army Colonel whose wife is accused of murdering their two teenage children for mouthing off is speaking out for the first time.
"My family and I are humbled by your support, grace, and overwhelming love for Calyx and Beau," said Colonel Parker Schenecker.
He attended a somber and moving memorial service for his son Beau and daughter Calyx, organized by their grieving school friends.
Police say 50-year-old Julie Scheneker shot her 13-year-old son in the head on the way to soccer practice, then gunned down her 16-year-old daughter as she was doing homework.
After each friend spoke, Colonel Scheneker greeted them with hugs.
His voice cracked as he asked everyone to remember his children by their lives, not their shocking deaths.
"They loved you too. Please don't forget how they lived," said Colonel Scheneker.
