911 call records the horrifying moment a teen daughter stabbed her mother and elder sister to death
44-year-old Rosa Aminta Maldonado and 19-year-old daughter Rosa Lee Maldonado were killed at their home in Limestone County, Alabama.
The horrific stabbing deaths of 44-year-old Rosa Aminta Maldonado and 19-year-old daughter Rosa Lee Maldonado occurred last week in Limestone County, with the culprit being none other than Rosa Aminta's other 15-year-old daughter. While her name has not been revealed because of her juvenile status, Alabama investigators have said they obtained a 911-recording of the mother's last call wherein she's heard screaming and begging for her life.
People quoted Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely commenting about the incident and terming the incident as 'chilling,' though he did not go as far as to divulge the exact contents of the call. "It was someone begging and pleading for help," he said. "You could hear the mother actually taking her last breaths and dying there on the phone. What caused this, we don't know. This is a very horrific act."
Police allegedly received the desperate call at around 1 a.m. last Wednesday, following which they made their way to their residence in Lester and found the victims' bodies. Blakely continued his description of the call, adding how the victims could be heard begging the teenager to stop the attack and divulging that several knives were used by the suspect to commit the double homicide.
The teenage suspect was reportedly found elsewhere in the home, slashing her head and neck with the knives. According to law enforcement, she was attempting suicide, though the police intervened and had her taken to a hospital for treatment and further evaluation.
"Whatever explanation is not a reason or justification for something like this," Blakely said. "This is a horrific crime, whether you are 15 or 50 years old. People shouldn't be doing something like this." He also said that investigators are anxious to talk to the suspect, "We’ll be talking to some people in the school where she attended. We will be talking with some other family members who live in this area."
A GoFundMe has been set up in the pair's name by a relative to help pay for their funeral. A statement on the site read, "I’m trying to raise money to help my uncle bury his wife (Rosa Aminta Maldonado) and daughter (Rosa Lee Maldonado that recently passed away. Any donation is a huge help and greatly appreciated. If you’re not able to donate just share it and make this get big for help."
The 15-year-old has been charged as a juvenile with two counts of capital murder. She is currently in stable condition at a local hospital, and it is currently unclear whether she has legal representation. There is also little in the way of her motives and it is not known what sparked the vicious attack.
