Texas Father of Slain Daughters and Wife Shares Photos, His Faith
Jason Sheats, husband of Christy Sheats and father of two daughters, 17-year-old Madison and 22-year-old Taylor, finally broke his silence on Wednesday after having survived a fatal Texas shooting that took his whole family from him last Friday evening. Taylor was supposed to marry her boyfriend the following Monday.
He posted a series of photos of him and his girls smiling and laughing on Facebook before posting a verse from the Bible reading:
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
Jason Sheats, 45, watched his wife fatally shoot both of his daughters before she was killed by local police. Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said violence may have been sparked shortly after Jason told his wife he wanted a divorce.
Authorities decidely gave Jason Sheats some space after the horrible incident. He went on to interview with them on Tuesday. Recordings of the 911 call have been released to the public. WARNING: It is a truly harrowing clip listening the father and the daughters begging.
He has his faith, Nehls says: "He said he's a Christian man."
