Osborn said she couldn’t comment on the relationship except to say that Friday’s gruesome news came as a shock.
“They were part of a loving family, and this was very unexpected. From every angle we could tell, their father loved them …,” Osborn said. “I just can’t imagine. I don’t know how he did it. Osborn added I don’t know how he was able to do this to them.”
Osborn set up a GoFundMe account to help the girls’ mother, Venecia Shameer Kirkland, with funeral expenses.
