Smyrna Murder-Suicide

Counselors will be at Stewartsboro Elementary School today (Monday), to help the Smyrna children who tragically lost their parents and classmates who need to talk with someone. Smyrna Police say the bodies of 37-year old Adytia Romotar and his 34-year old ex-wife Sharon Forbes was made by their eight year old child Saturday. They're classifying it as a murder-suicide. Police were called just after 6:30 Saturday morning when the child went to a neighbor's home on Bolton Drive, carrying a gun. It's believed Romotar shot Forbes before turning the gun on himself. There were two other children inside the home besides the eight-year old at the time of the murder-suicide. The six year old and the eight-year old were children of the estranged couple. Also, the two-year old nephew of Forbes was inside, all asleep when the incident occurred. Smyrna Police Chief Kevin Arnold tells Channel 4 news the children are being cared for...

 

Romotar and Forbes were natives of Guyana, but were legal U-S residents.
