CHARLOTTE, NC – Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said 34-year-old Christina Treadway killed her two children before committing suicide by jumping off a highway bridge.

Police responding to a call about a woman who committed suicide Saturday afternoon found the body of Treadway on Interstate 485 after she jumped off the Old Gum Branch Road bridge.

Officials say “key information” led police to Treadway’s home where they found the dead woman’s two children, 7-year-old Isaiah Miller and 3-year-old Iliyah Miller, were alone and badly injured.

Responding paramedics and firefighters tried to save the children’s lives as they were transported to Carolinas Medical Center, but they were both pronounced dead shortly after arriving.

CMPD officials said their investigation revealed that Treadway physically assaulted her children before jumping off the bridge and killing herself.

Investigators are looking into what would cause Treadway to harm her children. The father of the two kids has been located and is not considered a suspect.

“Obviously, that’s at the core of this investigation: What would cause someone to be so despondent to want to take their own life and take the lives of their children,” said CMPD Maj. Mike Smathers. “But that’s going to be a key component of the investigation, and we’re nowhere near ready to speak on that.”

On Treadway’s Facebook account, that has since been removed, she recently posted a graphic promoting mental health awareness. She also has a Youtube Channel that is currently active. It has 20+ videos that mainly feature her children singing and\or dancing.

Two GoFUndme accounts have been created in relation to this incident. One by Treadway’s family who are asking for $10,000 to travel from California and help with funeral expenses. The other from a man claiming to be the father of the two children.
