A grandmother who killed her two grandchildren before killing herself left two notes explaining why she did it. Hanahan police say 51-year-old Phyllis Oser left two notes that said she was depressed and worried about financial and family issues before she killed her two grandchildren, 5-year-old Kylie Lavelle and 5-month-old Landon Lavelle, and herself.
Police Chief Donald Wilcox says Oser left a package for her daughter, who was not the children’s mother, on Sunday. One of the notes was in that package, the other was in the home where Oser died. Reports say the children’s parents had been in a custody battle over the two children.
