Saddened and Shocked.
That’s how Austen Blake Minter’s family members describe their emotions Monday in a two-paragraph statement.
Police say the 25-year-old Minter killed his girlfriend — and the mother of his children, Tracy Hedgepath, who was three months pregnant, plus there 3 and 6 year old children, each with single gunshot wounds to the head before killing himself during a domestic argument.
“We cannot attempt to explain or understand how or why Austen became so disconnected with reality that he was able to harm those he loved most,” Minter’s family said.
