Father kidnaps & kills 6-month-old baby and her tot sister, leaves them under tarp in family yard: Kyle Brandon Grieb Bio, Wiki
Kyle Brandon Grieb is a Texas man, apparently in a custody dispute, is accused of killing his two children before turning the gun on himself.
Hays County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived at a home off of Boulder Bluff in San Marcos on August 27, after a call to police concerning child custody issues, KSAT 12 reports.
Halie Engleman, a mother of four young daughters, contacted authorities when her ex, Kyle Brandon Grieb, 30, took two of the children and fled. According to police, Grieb was the father of Engleman’s two youngest children.
Engleman said Grieb spent the night at his residence and, while there, told him he planned to take the children away from him.
Engleman told police that she woke up the next morning and could not find her two youngest daughters. When he asked Grieb where they were, he reportedly pointed to a bathroom, according to Hays Free Press. When Engleman looked in the bathroom, no one was there.
Around the same time, Grieb reportedly bolted from the home, prompting Engleman to call authorities for help.
When the police arrived and started looking for the children, family members showed up at the house. A deputy “heard one of them exclaim ‘there is a body here,'” according to an affidavit.
Officers searched the yard and found 6-month-old Caraline Engleman and 2-year-old Amyah Engleman perished under a tarp, “with obvious gunshot wounds to the head.” An officer saw Grieb lying next to the canvas with a shotgun wound to the head.
All three were declared dead.
Investigators said Grieb shot the children before shooting himself.
Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page was created to help the family get transportation and new housing.
