Mom who killed children tells estranged husband to ‘rot’ in suicide note

A South Carolina woman who killed her two children and a 28-year-old woman before turning the gun on herself left behind a series of suicide notes, including one for her estranged husband.

Jessica Edens had been locked in a heated custody battle with her husband, Ben Edens, when she was found dead alongside their 5-year-old daughter, Harper Edens, and her 9-year-old son, Hayden King, inside a locked, running jeep on July 13.

“To Ben, you have caused me more pain than I’ve been in my life. You have caused my children pain. I hate you,” she said in the hand-written note. “I hope you rot one day for what you have done to me and my kids.

“You can no longer hurt us. We are at peace. I hope you live with pain and shame and guilt for the rest of your life.”In a note to the father of her son, Edens apologizes for the pain she’s inevitably caused him, WYFF reported.

“To Nate, I don’t know what to say. You gave me my first child. I will be forever greatful (sic) because of you,” she said. “I never meant to cause you as much pain as this.”The note Edens left behind for her family took on a similar tone — she apologized to them for being “selfish,” but explains she “cannot live with this pain longer. I just cannot handle it.

“It is too much,” she wrote. “It hurts too much.” Police have closed the investigation and dubbed the incident a murder-suicide, according to the statement.

Authorities released a series of documents, including the suicide notes, as well as supporting dashcam footage with the hope of shedding light on the case, WSPA reported.
