Kristi and Kelly SucklaGrapevine, TX — A teen girl in Texas received the worst birthday present ever after her father killed her mother and then himself while attending her birthday party.

Kristi Suckla, 44, and her two children had been living with Kristi’s parents for about two months after after separating from her husband, 43-year-old Kelly Suckla.

On Saturday, the Suckla family was reuniting at the home of Kristi’s parents to celebrate Rachel Suckla’s sixteenth birthday.  Kelly was invited to the party and family members were aware he was going to be there.

Sometime around 10 p.m., Kelly and Kristi stepped outside and got into an argument. No word on what it was about, but it ended when Kelly pulled out a gun and shot Kristi multiple times before turning the gun on himself.

Kristi Suckla died from multiple gunshot wounds and was found right outside the front door. Kelly Suckla died from a single gunshot wound to the head and was found lying in the driveway. Their two children did not see the actual shooting, but did see their parents’ bodies immediately afterwards.

I think this is the second story posted on DD in which a man kills his wife during their daughter’s birthday party. If you remember, 51-year-old Kevin Allen used a shotgun to murder his wife and daughter during a birthday dinner inside a Cracker Barrel.

    I thought this was the Crackle Barrel story that you mentioned.

    At least the kids are alive. That’s all I got.

  • Andyman

    At least this jack ass didn’t murder or critically injure his daughters too. if that is saying something… Not that I’m defending any of this.

  • Coyote

    Sweet 16, your parents are dead. Your dad shot your mom and then himself. Happy Birthday!

  • Eliza Berntsen

    No, no, no, no, no. You are supposed to shoot YOUR own brains out first.

  • Anosmia

    Honestly, if I were one of those kids, I’d probably wish he HAD killed me. I can’t imagine recovering from the trauma of my parents murder-suiciding a few feet away from me at my birthday party. The parents of a friend of mine murder-suicided last summer and although my friend and her siblings are all adults and none of them were there when it happened, that experience severely traumatized them. I would think the trauma would be even worse for Rachel and her sibling. Hopefully they’ll ultimately be okay with intensive therapy, but in their shoes, I’m pretty sure I’d be wishing that my dad had killed me as well.

  • Buffettgirl

    Damn – how is anyone supposed to recover from that? It’s awful enough that the father did this, but to do it on her 16th birthday? How cruel…

  • guillotinegirl

    No one will ever be able to outdo her when she says, “Guess what I got for my 16th birthday?”.

  • Sam

    I wonder how long the poor girl was actually excited about mum and dad together for her birthday, and who knows, perhaps even working towards reconciling?

  • Tundratot

    I guess there’s nothing like family celebrations and holidays to make people feel righteous anger, self-pity, and motivate them to start exercising their First and Second Amendment rights.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Well look at it this way: her parents won’t be arguing or fighting with each other anymore.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I thought it was, too.

  • GGMon

    Man how selfish can you get? On your daughters birthday and now she’s lost 2 parents. Sad that they couldn’t look past their differences for her, at least for her birthday.

  • come_and_see

    Typical red neck party.

  • SillyCynic

    This is just depressing. I don’t think any amount of therapy will fix these two kids, sadly.

    Aren’t parents taught by their parents, to think about their own kids before themselves?

    Dickwad was an attention whore control freak. Too bad he got the last word and took his estranged wife with him.

  • Sam

    Okay, i don’t know if it’s the dress or anything but that cleavage is freaking me out. It’s like each breast is trying to run sideways to take cover in an armpit.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Saw the title, not even going to watch it.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Sounds to me like mom was looking past their differences and invited him over to celebrate. He is the asshole who couldn’t set it all aside. Don’t go blaming mom. He murdered her and took her away from her children against her will. The blame lies with him and him alone.

  • newstarshipsmell

    It isn’t horrific – I replayed it and couldn’t even see any blood anywhere. It’s just the groom standing there along with some other people and he suddenly falls down as the banner hanging behind him flutters from the bullet.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Still don’t want to see it. :/

  • JohnQknowitall

    At least – at the very least – the suicide part was successful too. I really feel for the kids.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Murder is not a 2nd. Amendment right.

  • How does one go on from something like this? The poor girl will never be happy on her birthday again…selfish guy, her father. Really selfish.

  • Cory

    Kelly: Kristi can we have a minute out on the deck?
    Kristi: Ok fine what do u want kelly I’m not getting into this with u?
    Kelly: I just really miss u and I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about us
    Kristi: Ummm ???
    Kelly: Look I know i messed up but
    Kristi: I’m going to stop you there… there is never going to be anymore of us
    Kelly: Why not
    Kristi: Because Kelly, I’ve come to terms that I’m a terrible cook and Lazy housewife and I cant even fold your laundry correctly for fuck sakes!
    Kelly: Your right Bam!

    So you had a better idea how this went down lol

  • With a name like Suckla …. it sums up that family….

  • techsupp0rt

    This is the kind of fuck I wish we could bring back to life just so we could shake it out of him again.
