New York: It's a shocking incident!
A mother posted a lengthy suicide note on Facebook a day after Christmas before suffocating her one-year-old son. Later she killed herself too.
Police found the 40-year-old Sheri Shermeyer dead in bed from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, and son, John who was apparently suffocated.
Before committing suicide and killing her son, Shermeyer wrote on Facebook: "I have been slowly dying inside... I feel that the ONLY thing I have to live for is this little guy asleep in my arms right now, John. He is the only reason why I haven`t blown my head off right now."
The chilling Facebook post further added, "And even now all I can think about is leaving this world. Putting a gun in my mouth and leaving. Which is what is about to happen."
