According to investigators, a Georgia father allegedly killed his adult daughter with special needs before killing himself.
A healthcare aide found Jerry Frix, 58, and Megan Frix, 26, dead inside their home about 15 miles northeast of Atlanta. When the aide discovered the bodies, she dialed 911 and called the authorities.
Upon arrival, the crime scene and forensic unit of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office began its investigation. According to Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Freeman, investigators believe the father killed his daughter and then himself.
The manner of death and motive of the murder have not been disclosed by the authorities.
Sheriff Freeman shared with WSB-TV, “the loss of life is especially tragic as the adult daughter had special needs and had lost her mother just a few years before.”
He continued, “there can be no justification for the loss of life, and we need to ensure that people know that they can reach out for help by calling 988 and be instantly connected to a crisis counselor.”
Investigations into the incident are ongoing.
Abby Ortwell, a family friend, provided more details about Megan’s death on a GoFundMe page that’s been made to cover funeral expenses. As of Thursday, the memorial service GoFundMe page raised more than $10,000.
