Mother and daughter in happier times (photos WFTS)

Dunedin, FL-

10-year-old Kassidie Rae McMillin has now died in the Florida hospital she was rushed to, after her mom Tina Marie Foster tragically shot her, then took her own life in their home. Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office  reported that the girl couldn’t overcome  a life-threatening injury she received. Police said the mother Tina Marie Foster, shot the child then she shot herself in the head. Foster’s husband and Kassidie’s stepfather William Foster, stumbled upon the bloody scene when he returned from work, then called 911.  To read more about the story please go here.

So sad when financial trouble can lead a mother to take her child’s life and her own. I wondered if someone couldn’t have saved this child? It was also reported her mom was facing trial from embezzling thousands of dollars over 2 -3 years from her employer. God, this is so sad and tragic and senseless.

Rest in Peace Kassidie Rae McMillin
