TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The two Florida teenagers allegedly killed by their mother are being remembered as outgoing, loving children who will not be forgotten.
In obituaries running in the Dallas-Fort Worth area on Sunday and Monday, Calyx and Beau Schenecker, who died in Tampa, are described as being devoted friends and students.
Sixteen-year-old Calyx is remembered as model student, published artist and tenacious cross country and track athlete. Beau is described as a lovable person who had countless friends.
Police say the teens were shot by their mother, Julie Schenecker, who told detectives they were "mouthy."
The teens' bodies were found after their grandfather called from
Texas and asked police to check on her daughter. A memorial service
will be held in Fort Worth on Tuesday.
