TAMPA - After the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office released 594 pages of documents and pictures Monday, a clearer picture is emerging of a horrific crime in the bay area that happened in January .
Julie Schenecker is accused of shooting her two teenage children in January, one inside their minivan and the other inside the family home.
The newly-released information paints a gruesome and heartbreaking scene. The two children, 16-year-old daughter Calyx and 13-year-old son Beau, were found shot and covered with blankets. Schenecker was barely able to stand.
At first glance, the pictures show a normal home. A laundry basket, food on the counter, and even remnants of a happy holiday. The Christmas tree is still decorated and left standing.
There is also evidence of a loving mother. Pictures of her two kids, when they were a lot younger, are in her wallet.
But then, a closer look. Tampa police officers found a receipt for a $600 gun and bullets, bottles of beer and wine, and several empty prescription pill bottles.
Also according to responding officers, they saw Schenecker laying on back porch in her pajamas and robe covered in blood. She let them in and they knew something was horribly wrong.
An officer wrote, "I could detect the strong distinctive odor of an alcoholic beverage. She could hardly stand. She was mumbling incoherently."
The officers asked to see the children. Schenecker didn't respond so they searched the home.
Upstairs, the officer describes seeing five bullet casings and then "blood drag marks" from the computer to the bed. Calyx was lying underneath a blanket.
An officer wrote, "Her face was covered in blood, she was not breathing."
Another officer found Beau in the family car, still seatbelted in. He wrote "I observed a human leg sticking out from underneath the blanket."
One mystery remains, Julie Schenecker's description of how she allegedly killed the two children.
Police say she left details scrawled on notes that she posted throughout the house. Prosecutors are keeping those secret. But, additional evidence may be released. The judge in the case has set a hearing for later this week.
