In a tragic incident in Northfield, New Hampshire, a family disagreement took a horrifying turn on August 3, 2022, resulting in a triple murder. Kassandra Sweeney, 25, and her two young sons, Benjamin (4) and Mason (23 months), were reportedly shot and killed by Kassandra’s 17-year-old brother-in-law, Eric Sweeney.

Surprisingly, prosecutors disclosed that Kassandra sent her final message to her husband, Sean Sweeney, just minutes before the devastating incident.

According to the New York Post, things were getting really tense in the Sweeney family’s home, where Eric, the accused, lived with his older brother Sean and Sean’s family. Concerns about Eric’s behavior became serious when Sean reported his brother’s troubling comments and the discovery of hidden weapons in their house.

Worried about Eric, Sean put a lock on his bedroom door because they didn’t talk much, and Sean and Kassandra were trying to figure out how to get Eric to leave.

On the tragic day, Eric supposedly got hold of a handgun from a locked safe that belonged to Sean. The awful incident happened in the kitchen of their home, but it’s unclear in what order the killings took place.

Kassandra’s last message to Sean, where she expressed hope that videos of their sons would bring him happiness, was sent just moments before she and the kids were fatally shot.

After the crime, Eric called Sean from Kassandra’s phone, saying there was a break-in and multiple deaths. But a witness heard kids screaming before Eric ran away. Kassandra, Benjamin, and Mason were found shot.

Eric told investigators a disturbing detail—he said he stepped over Kassandra and Benjamin’s bodies to leave the house. Even though there were tree workers nearby, he didn’t ask for help and supposedly threw the weapon on a highway.

Now, Eric Sweeney is facing serious charges as an adult, including three counts of first-degree murder and one count of getting rid of evidence. Court documents reveal a troubled family, adding a heartbreaking background to a crime that has shocked the community and left many questions unanswered.
