An argument between an American family and a shepherd in the country of Georgia ended tragically when a father and his 4-year-old son were fatally shot near the ravine where the boy’s mother plummeted to her death.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to investigators, Ryan Smith, his wife, Lora Smith, and their son, Caleb, were pronounced dead last week — days after their killings.

The report continues:

The 19-year-old suspect, who is not named in the statement, allegedly confessed to the killings. He allegedly told detectives he shot Ryan and Caleb Smith with a hunting rifle. Lora managed to flee the shooting scene, but died after falling into the ravine.

The suspect, the statement explains, allegedly hid the 4-year-old’s body “in an avalanche.”

The statement does not address what fueled the animosity between the suspect and Ryan Smith, but Georgia Today reports the suspect may have sexually harassed Lora.
