Mary Ann Holder goes on a shooting spree, killing 5 children and wounding a former lover
According to notes left behind, Holder was upset over the end of an affair with a married man. She shot him first, wounding his shoulder, before going to her own home where she shot and killed her sons Dylan (17) and Zach (14) Smith, niece and nephew Hannaleigh (8) and Richard (17) Suttles, and Dylan’s girlfriend Makayla Woods (15) who died of her injuries at the hospital. Holder then turned the gun on herself. The only drug found in her system was caffeine.
