'Talk to your daughter one last time': Dad's CHILLING message to wife before 12-year-old found dead
JOHNSON COUNTY, KENTUCKY: A father reportedly sent a chilling message to his wife before his 12-year-old daughter was found dead on Thursday, August 11. Stacia Leigh Collins was discovered on a road in Kentucky after her father was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, as per the police.
Her mother, Summer Mullins, said the dad, Stacy Collins, sent a chilling last message which read, "Do you want to talk to your daughter one last time?" The devastated mother said that she received the message through text and tried reaching her daughter, but got no answer.
Summer revealed that Stacia was her only healthy daughter after losing two other children to a rare disorder. She also said that she and the 12-year-old loved music and scary movies.
While speaking to the outlet, Summer said, “She loved Michael Meyers, Scream, even though it’s not all that scary, but she loved Scream.”
The mother also called her daughter’s school, who said Stacia had not attended the first two days of class. According to the police, her body was found in a "very, very remote" area of Johnson County.
Officers responded to reports of an assault on August 11, when they found the father suffering from a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound. The Johnson County Sheriff's Office said, "Extending from the initial investigation, deputies discovered that Mr Collins' 12-year-old daughter was missing."
The office added, "After exhausting numerous leads in an attempt to locate the juvenile, the JCSO in conjunction with Emergency Management Director Gary McClure began assembling search crews in an attempt to locate the juvenile. The search was to initially concentrate in the area that Mr Collins was found."
Johnson County Coroner JR Frisby said that the road in which Stacia's body was found is "hardly ever traveled by anyone."
The case is being investigated by the Johnson County Sheriff's Office. The authorities said that Stacia's body was transported by the Johnson County Coroner's Office to the Medical Examiners Office in Frankfort, KY.
Meanwhile, the Johnson County School District in a statement said that it "is saddened to report the tragic loss of one of our students, a sixth grader at Porter Elementary.
