Media reports started emerging on Friday November 20, 2020 about a possible murder-suicide in the Thomas Bridge area of Virginia.
According to the Herald Courier:
Three people were found dead and another seriously wounded early Friday in an apparent murder-suicide in the Thomas Bridge community of Smyth County, according to Sheriff Chip Shuler.
The shootings involved a 27-year-old woman and two children, ages 3 and 10, Shuler said Friday afternoon. Another child, 6, was in critical condition and was flown to Johnson City Medical Center. Another child, 8, escaped the scene, he said.
It quickly emerged online that the people involved were Jakie Thomas (27), and her children. Jakie joined True Crime Society in October 2020.

The children involved were Jeremih, Trent and Addisyn. The boys both had special needs.
It is thought that Jeremih and Addisyn died on the day of the murder-suicide. Trent was critically injured and sadly passed away a few days after the event.

The motive for the murder-suicide is currently unknown. Was the stress of having two children with special needs too much for Jakie? She also suffered the tragedy of having a stillborn child in 2016.
Obituaries for the four have been released:
