Autopsy Reveals New Details About Atlanta Mother Killing Her Two Children
Back in August, the story of Dr. Marsha Edwards and the mysterious alleged murder-suicide of herself and two children shocked the country. Now, an autopsy is shedding some more light on the tragic slayings.
A Cobb County Medical Examiner’s office report released this week states Edwards shot her son at least five times as he lay in bed and then shot her daughter three times in August, killing them both, before shooting herself in the chest.
The murders stunned the prominent family’s community in Atlanta as friends and family struggled to reconcile the terrible crime. The children’s father is Dr. Christopher Edwards, an orthopedic surgeon and chairman of the Atlanta Housing Authority board. He divorced Marsha Edwards in 2012, however, it seemed they still had a good relationship.
