We are very saddened to hear that newborn twins and a one-year-old have been orphaned after losing both their parents just two weeks apart.

Dad, Jevaughn Suckoo, 26, from Florida in the US, was killed in a shooting on July 11 at his home, leaving behind his pregnant girlfriend Stephanie Caceres, and their daughter Kailanie.

Ms Caceres gave birth to their twins, Jevaughn Jr. and Lailah, just three days later and was then struck down with an infection caused by her cesarean.

On July 26 – the day of Mr Suckoo’s funeral – the mother-of-three tragically died, The Daily Mail reported.

Her family said they are “devastated” and are trying to figure out “how to move forward.”

After losing Mr Suckoo, Ms Caceres made a post on Facebook saying it was the “toughest battle I’ve ever had to fight.”

“I just don’t understand how someone can have the heart to leave 3 kids without a father especially two that never got the chance to even meet him,” she wrote.

It has been reported the grandparents will take over care of the twins and Kailanie.

Our thoughts are with friends and family. So devastating.

  • Such a sad story. But if there’s any silver lining it’s that these babies still have people who love them and want to take care of them.


  • this is the saddest thing that i have read in awhile. those poor kids. very bittersweet for the family left behind. hopefully they can find the strength to carry on for those little babies sakes


  • The excitement of the birth of the twins is tragically overshadowed by the murder of their Dad and the death of their Mum. Neither the twins or their one year old will will remember either of their parents. Their grandparents have the stress of grieving themselves and trying to cope with a toddler and newborn twins. The little girl is old enough to know her parents are “missing” and will be very unsettled.


  • How awful losing both parents.


  • Its very sad these poor babies have to grow up without their parents.


  • That’s so sad for those poor children.

  • How tragic is this !!
    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, when they grieve the loss of their loved ones.
    Glad the grandparents are willing to take the kids, bless them.


  • What a sad set of circumstances for all concerned. I wish the grandparents and the little ones all the very best.

  • Unbelievable. Poor parents. And poor kids. So sad. Why do such things happen??


  • Oh how sad for the family and the little angels that will never know their mum and dad. I hope thats the end of their heartache and they live happy healthy lives
