Authorities have said 58-year-old Marsha Edwardsshot her two children inside her home before taking her own life. Her daughter Erin was a 2017 graduate of Woodward Academy and according to her social media pages, a student at Boston University.
The case has left the metro Atlanta community reeling since the doctor was a well-known surgeon who was formerly married to Dr. Christopher Edwards, a prominent surgeon and chairman of the Atlanta Housing Authority. "You've moved me, inspired me, and challenged me in ways I could have never expected, and I'm a better journalist and person for it".
In an eerie post just hours before the killings took place, Marsha took to Instagram to praise her grown children.
"Her enthusiasm was infectious and her smile lit up a room", Berkowitz said according to NBC News. Her talent was truly God-given.
"Dr. Christopher Edwards learned Wednesday of the death of his former wife, Dr. Marsha Edwards, and his two adult children, Christopher Edwards, Jr. and Erin Edwards".
"She told stories through times of pain and happiness, never leaving her passion for journalism too far behind", Edwards's fellow Posse scholars said in a statement, shared by BU.
Marsha's son Chris - a graduate of Woodward Academy and Elon University - was the digital content manager for the Atlanta Mayor's Office of Film and Entertainment.
