A Texas woman and her two young daughters were found dead inside their vehicle near Dallas on Thursday, coming about a day after they were reported missing.
Natalie Chambers was seen last in Forney on Wednesday as she was leaving her home to take her 2-year-old daughter, Elise, and 4-year-old daughter, Izabel, to a play date in Grapevine. They never arrived, said the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office.
Rutherford said it’s not clear how the three died. A nearby worker said they found the SUV where the three were found but did not note anything unusual before that, said officials.
Authorities are waiting on the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office to release the causes of death.
Chambers’ sister, Jessica Purcell, released a statement about the matter.
Elissa Brabandt, who knew Chambers, said that she suffered a recent injury but didn’t elaborate.
“I knew she was hurting a lot from that and, you know, she’s overcome a lot of obstacles in her life,” she told FOX4.
