Twin girls, 12, killed by their father in tragic murder-suicide

Authorities are investigating a tragic incident in Frost, Texas, where a father shot and killed his 12-year-old twin daughters before committing suicide. The Navarro County Sheriff’s Office identified the shooter as the girls’ father, Larry Thompson.

The victims were identified as sisters Heaven and Nevaeh Sadler.

The incident was discovered after a woman reported to the sheriff’s office that she left the residence with her own children following an argument with Thompson, but the twin girls were still at the home.

When she returned to check on the girls hours later, she heard a gunshot and called 911.

Upon the deputies’ arrival, Thompson’s mother informed them that she had just spoken to her son in an attempt to calm him down. However, minutes later, two gunshots were heard coming from inside the residence.

The SWAT team and crisis negotiators responded, and a tactical robot was deployed inside the home where the bodies of Thompson, Heaven, and Nevaeh were discovered.

The investigation revealed that Thompson had previously made “statements of potential violence toward the family and police if anyone tried to take his children.”

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help cover funeral costs.
