A CHILLING 911 call led cops to a horrifying discovery of three bodies at a home after a suspect said he had “no way out”.
Three people were found dead at a home in Riverview, Fla. after Thomas Schultz, 64, called 911 about “an impossible situation with no way out.”
Schultz called police at 6:14 a.m. Wednesday and told them he was planning to commit suicide at his home, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
During the call, Schultz gave the dispatcher his whereabouts, but did not explain himself further.
Sheriff Chad Chronister stated during a news conference Wednesday that Schultz told the dispatcher, “Please send someone to secure the residence.”
Chronister added that when the operator tried to strike up a conversation with Schultz, he said, “I have to go. I’m preparing to shoot myself.”
“He remained steadfast … very direct and blunt in what he wanted to say,” Chronister added.
Shortly thereafter, authorities found Schultz dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound with a revolver beside him.
Deputies also found two deceased women in the house.
In the house were Schultz’s wife, who was in her eighties, and his stepdaughter, who was in her fifties.
Chronister said it appears Schultz’s wife “was killed in her sleep.
Both women were found in different beds and appeared to have sustained gunshot wounds to the upper body.
After talking to relatives, the police learned that both women were terminally ill.
Police found Schultz’s stepdaughter attached to a feeding tube and in a hospital bed.
An investigation by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is ongoing and a motive has not yet been determined.
The police are assuming a suspected double murder-suicide.
In addition, the authorities have revealed that there were no criminal records among the residents of the house.
Sheriff Chronister noted in his press conference that “there is nothing out of the ordinary that would be a red flag for us.”
In a statement, Chronister said: “There is no such thing as an ‘impossible situation’. There is always hope and there is always help.”
He continued: “This tragedy happened during the month of May, Mental Health Awareness Month. I urge anyone in crisis to please seek help.
“There are a number of resources in our community, including the Tampa Bay Crisis Center. Just call 211.”
