Six days after their lives were taken at the hands of their own mother, a private funeral was held for 17-year-old Madison Sheats and 22-year-old Taylor Sheats near their home in Katy, Texas.
The two of them will later be laid to rest at an undisclosed location in Alabama.
Meanwhile, more information continues to be released regarding their 42-year-old mother, Christy Sheats, who shot her daughters to death on June 24th after her husband, Jason Sheats, reportedly asked for a divorce.
According to police reports, Jason revealed that Sheats had been dealing with depression since 2012 when her beloved grandfather and her mother passed away in the same year.
Sheats had allegedly been in and out of mental health facilities over the last four years.
Jason also revealed to investigators that she was on multiple medications and was seeing a therapist at the time of the attack. Sheats was also gunned down that same day by a police officer after failing to obey his command to drop her gun.
Sheats never once threatened or shown any sort of violence toward Jason or her girls before the day of the fatal attack.
Fort Bend County Detective Scott Heinemeyer tells KHOU 11 that Jason was “very surprised”:
“He says that had never occurred before, that she had never pointed the gun or threatened specific violence toward any member of the family. He was very surprised.”
According to earlier reports, Sheats called a family meeting after Jason told her he wanted a divorce. Jason initially thought the meeting was to discuss their separation with their girls.

Once all four of them were in the living room, Sheats pulled out a handgun and killed her daughters as a way to make Jason suffer. However, as KHOU 11 reports, it has not yet been revealed how much of a role Sheats’s mental illness played in that decision.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Jason and their loved ones during this difficult time.
