Catorreia Hutto Wiki – Catorreia Hutto Biography
Five-year-old twins were found dead in their bunk beds after their mother Catorreia Hutto jumped from a Florida bridge in an apparent murder-suicide, police said. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call around 8:45 a.m. Friday from a motorist who reported that a woman had stopped her silver car on the SR 417 bridge, slid out the car’s passenger side window and jumped into Lake Jesup, Sheriff. Dennis M. Lemma told reporters. When officers arrived, they saw the woman in the water. They recruited two fishermen, one of whom was a retired Seminole County firefighter, to help recover her body. The woman, identified as Catorreia Hutto, 31, of Sanford, was pronounced dead at the scene, the sheriff’s office said. The incident prompted a welfare check at her home after authorities learned she was the mother of 5-year-old twins.
Catorreia Hutto was 31 years old.
Cause of Death
Inside the home, police found the boy and girl, Ahmad and Ava Jackson, dead in their beds. Both children had special needs, according to police. A gun was found in the bedroom, but the children had no gunshot wounds or signs of blunt force trauma to their bodies, Lemma said. The cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner’s office. “If (deputies) didn’t check vital signs, they wouldn’t know they were deceased,” the sheriff said. Hutto had no criminal record and there were no calls to her current home, which was a Habitat for Humanity project completed about a year ago. According to Lemma, the house had little food and furniture inside. She worked at a temp agency, however, it is unclear if she was having financial difficulties, the sheriff said. Hutto had been working just a few days ago. The twins last attended school on Oct. 13, Lemma said. Hutto had attempted to contact her mother, who lives in Perry but was in Orlando for a medical procedure, on Thursday night. Her mother told police she missed the call and assumed one of the twins was playing with the phone since Hutto didn’t leave a message. Investigators believe the children’s father lives in South Florida.
