Two young children found dead in Gert Town apartment, Mom in custody

CaptureNew Orleans Police are investigating the deaths of 3-year-old Kendal and 4-year-old Kelsey Adams in a Gert Town apartment Wednesday afternoon.

Police were summoned to the 3300 block of Audubon Court when the children’s grandmother called 911 after finding the children unresponsive in the bathtub.

An autopsy will confirm the cause of death for the two children, but NOLA.com is reporting that the children’s mother, Chelsea Thornton, shot her 3-year-old son, then drowned her 4-year-old daughter when her gun malfunctioned.

The NOLA.com story goes on to say the mother took a bus to a local hospital afterwards, complaining of abdominal pains and a headache.
