Sarah Hunt Shot Her Teen Son
On Monday, November 9, Riesel police and McLennan County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call around 8 a.m. about a stalled Hyundai minivan on East Frederick Road, McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said, The Waco Tribune-Herald reported.
Garrett Hunt’s body was found in the front seat with multiple gunshot wounds, the newspaper continued, citing police.
According to an affidavit obtained by The Waco Tribune-Herald, authorities discovered a .40-caliber pistol on the floor of the driver’s side. They also found a .40-caliber magazine and cartridges scattered throughout the car, the newspaper said.
KWTX added that the court document noted, “When law enforcement found the vehicle, all the doors were closed, the windows were rolled up, and the vehicle was running.”
The McLennan County Sheriff’s Office affidavit says police learned from family members that Sarah Hunt that morning picked her son up from staying with his father in a camper, according to The Waco Tribune-Herald.
The school teacher had plans to drive Garrett Hunt to his first day at Riesel High School as a new student, the newspaper added. Investigators said the family was in the process of moving to the Riesel area, The Waco Tribune-Herald continued.
When Sarah Hunt after the fatal shooting approached two people near Riesel Square, she explained her son needed help and that he “was with her mother in heaven,” The Waco Tribune-Herald disclosed, citing the court document.
Witnesses told authorities that the 39-year-old mother said “what have I done” and “this is not real,” The Waco Tribune-Herald reported.
A motive for the shooting has not yet been found, KWTX added.
“At this point we don’t have a motive, we don’t know what happened, we don’t know what led up to this, it’s a big mystery, and that’s what we’re trying to determine, what caused this,” the McLennan County sheriff said to the station.
