In October, 1993 Wilma J. Adcock of the Antioch Community shot her
nine- and 15- year-old sons in the chest twice with a .357 revolver and
then turned the gun on herself.
In July this year, Rosemarie Kirkwood of Lebanon drove to a scenic
overlook above Center Hill Lake in DeKalb County and shot her two young
children and then shot herself.
Is there a connection? Ann Blake-Tracy, Director of the
International Coalition For Drug Awareness, thinks there’s a definite
connection — anti-depressant medication.
