“But whoever hurts one of these little ones who believe in Me and causes them to loose faith, it would be better for that person to have a large stone hung around their neck, and be drowned in the sea.
But whoever hurts the faith of one of these little ones who believe in Me, it would better for that person to be dropped in the sea with a weight around their neck and be put to death. Mathew 18
The tragic and unfathomable story of the dad accused of killing his three daughters just reached even more horrific levels, if that’s possible. Police are finally talking about exactly what happened to the three girls, ages 5, 8, and 11, that police found dead in their beds inWisconsin Tuesday. The suspect Aaron Schaffhausen is accused of doing the deed with his very own hands.
34-year-old Schaffhausen called his ex-wife, Jessica, and asked if he could have an unplanned visit with his three girls. She agreed he could come over to the house and relieve the sitter to spend time with the girls, but had to be gone by a certain time because she did not want to see him. Warning sign number one.
After the sitter left, cops say Schaffhausen used “sharp force injury” to the necks of each of his girls — Amara, 11; Sophie Schaffhausen, 8, and 5-year-old Cecilia Schaffhausen, who was also strangled.
A quick search of “sharp force injury” likely means that he slit, stabbed or chopped at his little girls’ precious necks with a knife or other weapon. Trying to push that image and the train of events that led up to the actual killings from my mind, I can’t but ask: Were the sisters a witness to the other killings? Did they know what was going to happen to them?
The clincher to this story is how the girls were excited to see their father, and took him upstairs to show him their rooms, at which time the baby sitter left. About two hours later, Schaffhausen is said to have called his wife with this chilling message:
You can come home now because I killed the kids.
