Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies had a grisly discovery this morning when they responded to a call for help from a home in unincorporated Clearwater.
According to a sheriff’s office media release, when deputies went inside the home at 2015 Sidney St. just after 2 a.m. Sept. 22 they found Dawn Brown, 34, and her two children, ages 5 and 9, dead.
“Although the investigation is still ongoing, it is believed that Brown took the lives of her two children and then hung herself, utilizing an electrical cord, from a bedroom ceiling fan,” the release said.
Deputies are not releasing the cause of death for the children until an autopsy is completed.
