Tampa Bay, FL – Jaded was gonna post this earlier this morning, but she passed out with an empty bottle in her hand and a cigarette dangling from her mouth. I’ll get pics up soon. I just got back from seeing THE MECHANIC and in a fairly good mood, so I guess I’ll post this depressing bit of news out of Florida where a neighborhood is in shock after learning two popular teens were murdered Thursday evening and their mother is the one charged with shooting them to death.

After recieving a phone call from a concerned relative police went to the home of 50-year-old Julie Schenecker on Friday morning. After no one answered the front door, they went around back and found Schenecker on the back porch in her slippers and a bloody robe.

Calyx Schenecker

She explained to them that on the day before she was on her way home from picking up her son, 13-year-old Powers “Beau” Schenecker, from soccer practice when she shot him twice in the head with a .38-caliber pistol. Police would find his body still sitting in the passenger seat of the SUV parked in the garage.

After killing Powers, Schenecker said she went inside, walked upstairs and shot her daughter, 16-year-old Calyx Schenecker, in the back of the head while she was doing her homework. She then shot her in the face. Police would find her body still in her bedroom by the computer.

They would also find a detailed note written by Schenecker explaining how she planned to kill them, then herself. But as is sometimes the case with these stories, they always seem to change their mind when it comes to putting a bullet in their own head.

Police say she has shown no signs of remorse and the only reason she has given for murdering her children was that they were “mouthy” and she was tired of them talking back to her.

Beau Schenecker

She was taken to jail and charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

She was later transported to the medical unit because she wouldn’t quit shaking. She would miss her Saturday court date because she was taken to the hospital early this morning where she is in intensive care being treated for a condition she had before she murdered her children.

Her husband, Army Col. Parker Schenecker, 48, is currently stationed in the Middle East. He was informed of the death of his children on Friday.

Beau was an eighth-grader at Liberty Middle School and loved playing soccer. Calyx was a sophomore at King High School in the International Baccalaureate program as well as a member of the cross country team. Her principal described her as an excellent, popular student who never missed a day of school.

    This is sad and disturbing. All teenagers are mouthy, but it’s not generally considered acceptable to blow their heads off for being that way. If it was, the human race would have come to a screeching halt thousands of years ago.

    I remember screaming into my mom’s face that she was a bitch and she hated me, when I was 15. She slapped me. I guess I got lucky, huh?

  • Anonymous

    what gets me is that they weren’t shot sneaking back into the house at 4 am or in the middle of a screaming match with mom. hell, they weren’t even playing video games too loud or anything! many mothers would kill to have kids involved in such wholesome activities as doing homework and playing soccer. i wonder what her pre-existing condition was, obviously she’s insane

  • Parrot Toes

    Aw, no shoutout? I only made this mom do this heinous crime so that I could post it in the forums and finally get appreciated around here since I knew it had front page potential. Damn it, I buried my gun too. Now I’ll have to dig it up and force someone else to do something worse. :P

  • Farce_scape

    I guess someone should have warned this bitch to EXPECT her children to be mouthy and generally disagreeable in their teen years… And, if that was the worst behavior she had to deal with, from two adolescent kids, she REALLY should have counted herself LUCKY!

    Sounds like her son and daughter were GOOD kids, actually…
    And, how *gorgeous* was Calyx???
    Such a waste of two lives that had so much potential.

    Not that they would’ve deserved this even if they were poor students, or ugly little hellions, but… WOW!
    : (

  • guillotinegirl

    Dead teenagers do have a tendency to be less mouthy than their live counterparts.

  • Shauna Olsen

    Btw, on FB it seems there is some fucktard making horrible comments and pictures about the deceased. He goes by the name Freight caws and put up pics saying “lol you died”, or “quit talking about the family crying, I cant catch my breath…lol…thats how you died”. Of course the coward is using a fake name and account and wont show his face since he knows someone would probably knock his teeth down his throat! What is wrong with people???

  • Shauna Olsen

    Actually there is one fake “memorial site”, that has the highest hits on it. Seems it is a contest for this group of “intellectual” college students to see how pissed off they can make people by messing with families of vicitms. Nice, huh? I realized it is a contest for these idiots and they get off on the comments people give them and about being upset about their insensitvity. WTF??

    I was thinking the same thing.

  • Anonymous

    I’m kinda wondering if Julie Scheneker has a brain tumor or a traumatic brain injury. She had a car accident in November and things seemed pretty okay before that. A shearing brain injury like one would get in a whiplash can go unnoticed at first, but can cause major personality shifts, seizures, Parkinson’s-like symptoms, impulse control issues and depression. Brain tumors can also cause those things.

    With the shaking and the crazy eyes and the fact that she is now in the hospital for a medical reason, I wouldn’t be shocked to find that there is something very wrong in this woman’s brain.

  • Anonymous

    Maybe she should’ve slapped them BEFORE the mouthy-ness started. My brothers & I would NEVER talk back to our mom (or any adult still for that matter) because WE VALUED OUR LIFE.

  • Anonymous

    My mom and I watch Toddlers and Tiaras together, and she’ll occasionally shake her head and say “If you’d talked to me like that, you wouldn’t have lived to see adulthood…”

    Umm, I’m pretty sure she’s exagerating, though. I think… I dunno, I certainly didn’t test it.

    I do hope it was brain trauma/something to do with that accident she had, otherwise she makes a good case for eugenics.

    Apparently the mom was in some sort of Army intelligence prior to all of this madness. Army MOS 97E: Human Intelligence Collector- so, I’m sure if she was involved in military intelligence she is damned hell nutty now…who knows what kind of shady shit she has done in her past to make her loose her fuggin mind!

    Cannot help wondering if she told her children she was doing so. “So you’d better start behaving!”

    I have this horrible feeling it had nothing to do with mouthiness and everything to do with mother being terminally ill (or thinking she is) and not wanting her children to go on without her, for whatever reason, selfish or otherwise.

Would I shoot him with a gun or tazer him? After you buddy and enjoy prison for that crap, I would not waste a spit on these jerks since they would feel that they have accomplished what they set out to do…that there are morons out there whose better half ran down there mamas leg! To read the lack of empathy and taunting saying that thank God one less soccer fag out there was to be taken in “humor”, is sickening and disturbing. Who knows maybe we will be lucky and this waste of human flesh and bone will be ran over by a run away mack truck or steam roller or even better the father of these two slain children will find one of these assholes and knock their teeth out and break their fingers. If they want to claim freedom of speech shouldn’t it be done with some respect of others suffering and not exploit it for their fun?

    Oh and these assholes do this crap cause they feel that memorial sites are a waste on the internet. They feel it should not be allowed for those to mourn loved ones by putting memorial sites online. Of course this means they have trolled other memorial sites too btw. I have seen these jerks in action with child abuse victims who died and whose family made a website for them. They look for these sites and then harrass and torment loved ones cause they don’t like memorial sites. These are the frigging sickos that I bet would deface grave stones in a cemetary cause they don’t like seeing them when they drive by them. Sad to say their rights to hurt others are more important than the suffering of others. Nice.

    My husband has been deployed a few times already to the middle east and it is hard for men and women there when it comes to worriying about their families here in the US and being gone. I can only hope this poor man will be able to get through this—painfully—but be able to somehow carry on after losing so much. That just sucks to think about a loss this big. About five or six years ago something similar happened where a reservist who was overseas lost his wife, sister and three kids to a psycho who lived across the street from them. This happened in Washington state. Not only did he murder them he burned down their house as well along with all the photos and memories of his family. The devestation was horrible and I think it took a long time for this man to come to terms with his loss. I do know he was in court and made a victim impact statement that left many in tears. He made it clear he wished that the man got the death penalty and found it a joke and travesty that the man got life instead.

    I remember getting into an argument and yes I called her a nosey bitch. My mom is short and i was taller than her so I got full of myself thinking she wouldn’t do anything. WRONG!!!

    This story is just so sad – I appreciate the levity of this site – the offset of such helps in coping with the tragic-ness (is tragicness a word? nope!) of the whole thing. I’m hoping the mom was too fucked up to know better and isn’t just a cold hearted bitch. I still wish she had offed herself instead of those sweet kids.

    I remember when my mouthy teen pissed me off – I told her to go to her room and paint it black. What she ended up doing was even funnier – I was in her room one evening yakkin at her and her friends when someone turned off the lights. I had always indulged my precious and one of the things she had were glow in the dark markers.

    Across the wall in 2 foot high letters it said “MOM IS A BITCH”! OMG I laughed my ass off and still do.

    Of course, I also buy my granddaughters those cool markers…

  • Zibarro aka Kryssa

    Happened to a friend of mine (though not this drastic)

    She was an older woman, working alone at a 7-Eleven late at night. A man parked his car at the gas pumps and walked to the front doors. She was out front shaking rugs. He came up behind her and proceeded to (literally) bash her skull in with a hammer. He then casually walked back to his car and left. She crawled into the store, called 911 and somehow survived. She had a steel plate where half her skull used to be – and she was sooooo different. Paranoia about EVERYTHING and EVERYONE. Accusations would fly from her mouth at the drop of a hat. What had once been the most friendly, outgoing and sweet woman – became a complete stranger. I still mourn for who she used to be. The “reasoning” part of her brain seemed to have died.

    If that is what happened with this woman, I hope and pray she is never “normal” again. To be “fixed” only to discover that you murdered your 2 young children in cold blood while “broken”, would have to be unbearable.

    Fuck. Smart kids with an obviously bright future. And poor dad. This whole thing is just too sad.

    You know, the rigid posture….the wide eyes…..shaking….the almost sideways pursed mouth….you may have a valid point. And I’m sure she’s being evaluated medically. I looked at her FB page, and she looked like a completely different person last year. Non of the rigidness, almost going backwards kind of posture. If she had a brain injury late last year….?? Not that I’m excusing anything-what she did makes me SICK. But it is very possible that her brain injury did alot more damage than anyone realized. In that case, I would feel so sorry for her if she ever really “gets it” what she did…..this is just so sad and tragic =(

    Sounds like she was an addict/alcoholic (in addition to mentally ill). The father and kids attended an AlAnon meeting a few weeks ago. The daughter said “My Mom…” and then started bawling and couldn’t say anything else. And drugs may have contributed to the car accident she caused back in November.

    After seeing these kids and hearing people talk about what good kids they were, I can’t help but think that this really had nothing to do with them being mouthy. I mean come on! The daughter was sitting there just doing her home work and the son just got done with soccer, I don’t see it. I don’t thing these were bad or mouthy kids at all. I just don’t see it. I really think this woman had some serious mental health issues going on that on one knew about or realized. I feel so bad for the father of these children. I blame the Florida Police Department and Child Services! This woman was already accused of abusing her children and they stood back and did nothing about it. They could have stopped all this mess and they just sat back and basically watched it happened. They probably ain’t missin one night of sleep over it either! That makes me so mad! There are a lot of people that CPS messes with, people that are accused of abusing their child that aren’t. For example, people fighting and calling CPS on each other to get back at somebody. I think a lot of times kids are removed from homes or people have open cases and there is no abuse happening. And there are kids that really do need to be removed and no one is doing anything about it ( this woman is a perfect example). They may talk to the accused for a minute and then close the case, like they did with this woman. So the question becomes, how do you know which cases are real and which ones are not? I just think the state really needs to figure out a better way to find out if abuse is really going on in a home or not. We are losing to many of our children and something really needs to be done. I’m just sayin.
