TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Toledo Police say a mother and her child were found dead in a north Toledo garage late Monday night.
Police say they received a call from a man living in a residence on the 3100 block of 128th Street in Point Place just after 11 p.m. Kim Hassler, 48, and Andrew Hassler, 11, were pronounced dead at the scene.
"We received a 911 call about 11 last night - a male caller - saying that his girlfriend and her son were - he found them hanging in his garage," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan with the Toledo Police Department.
Police are investigating the case and stayed on the scene to preserve evidence. They say the deaths appear to be a murder suicide.
The news of these two lives lost on this quiet street had members of the community, as well as the police department, shocked.
"It's perplexing. I mean, suicides are painful enough when they occur, but to have, on top of that, an 11-year-old killed," said Heffernan.
Police say everything indicates that Hassler hung herself and her son, and although she left behind a suicide note, there are still many questions left unanswered.
"We'll make sure not to leave anything unturned. We'll know more once the autopsies are complete and the toxicology is back, and see if that leads us to any other conclusions or results," said Heffernan.
Andrew was a fifth-grader at Edgewater Elementary School. District officials say they are also dealing with the loss and will have counselors on hand for students and faculty as long as it takes.
