- 62 years old man kills daughter, daughter-in-law with his own car in high speed.
A 62-year-old man, Roger Glenn Self has allegedly killed his 26 years old daughter, Katelyn Self, as well as his daughter-in-law, Amanda Self, reported to be a nurse with his own car while he drove at a very high speed against the duo.
The suspect is reported to have been placed under arrest for the murder in North Carolina on Monday after he allegedly excused himself from a restaurant lunch with his family, then, rammed the victims with his car at high speed killing the duo.
Self, said to be a native of Dallas, North Carolina, is currently being held on two charges of first-degree murder, the Gaston County Sheriff’s Office said.
However, the Gaston Gazette reported that, Self was seated with his family at the Surf and Turf Lodge in Bessemer City, near Dallas, on Sunday when he excused himself, went to his car and drove at full speed straight into the table where his family was sitting.
“I saw a white Jeep just fly right past my face,” a waiter, Brandon Wilson, was quoted as saying.
“It was so unreal,” Wilson said. “I saw chairs and tables and cups just flying everywhere. It just sounded like a tornado.”
Following the incident, Roger Self’s wife, Diane, who narrowly escaped death, was seriously injured along with their son, Josh Self, a police officer, and their granddaughter, the 13-year-old daughter of Josh and Amanda Self.
Meanwhile, the Gaston Gazette quoted friends of Roger Self, who owned a private investigation company, as saying that he had recently been battling mental illness and depression.
“He was trying to get help,” Austin Rammell, the pastor of the church which Self attended, was quoted as saying.
“We were trying to steer him toward help,” Rammell said.
