Suicide and Crisis Lifeline Called as Texas Mother Records Disturbing Video before Incident

San Antonio, Texas – A tragic incident unfolded when a Texas mother took the lives of her 3-year-old son and herself. Before the devastating act, the mother, Savannah Samantha Kriger, recorded a chilling video by a drainage ditch and sent a haunting text message to her ex-husband. Bexar County sheriff’s deputies made the grim discovery on March 19 near Tom Slick Park in San Antonio, where Kriger and her son, Kaiden, were found lifeless. Kriger was identified as the sole suspect in this heartbreaking case.

During a news conference held by Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar, it was revealed that Kriger’s death was ruled as a suicide, while Kaiden’s death was classified as a homicide. The sheriff reconstructed the events leading up to the tragic murder-suicide, shedding light on the grim timeline of the mother’s actions.

Kriger and Kaiden were reported missing on March 18 after Kriger was last seen leaving her job early to pick up her son from daycare for a doctor’s appointment. Upon investigation, it was found that Kriger had damaged various items at her ex-husband’s residence before departing and returning to her own home. Disturbingly, deputies who entered Kriger’s home the following day found wedding dresses laid out with bullet holes in them.

The series of events took a harrowing turn when Kriger arrived at Kaiden’s daycare and left with him in her vehicle, only to make a chilling FaceTime call to her ex-husband. As the situation escalated, Kriger’s actions grew increasingly alarming, leading to the tragic climax at Tom Slick Park where her ex-husband reported a distressing message to authorities.

Despite the presence of a legally obtained firearm at the crime scene, Salazar expressed skepticism about preventing the tragedy and emphasized the importance of timely welfare checks. The heartbreaking incident serves as a stark reminder of the complexities of mental health and the importance of reaching out for help in times of dire need.
