Mother, 2 Children Found Dead in Clearwater Area

Deputies believe the 34-year-old woman killed her children and then hung herself.

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.

Stay with Patch for details as they become available.

May God take care of them all now. "To be absent from this body, is to be present with The Lord"

May the boys rest in peace where no one can ever harm them again.May the mother burn forever.If you want to kill yourself .........fine but when you decide to murder your children you go from their parent to their killer.No way is the mother with God.
