Milwaukee Woman and Daughter Drowned After Telling 911 She’ll Drive Car into Lake

According to MEAWW, authorities are investigating the drowning of a Milwaukee woman and her daughter after she called 911 to say she was going to drive her car into a lake, reported Meaww.

The deceased family died when the car went into Wisconsin Lake last Thursday, December 8.

Inside the car that sank in Northridge Lake, Khalilah S. Brister, 25, and her daughter Tyrielle Jefferson drowned.

The mall is located at the intersection of North 76th Street and West Brown Deer Road.

According to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office, which disclosed that Brister committed suicide, her daughter’s death was a homicide, as noted by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Details of the matter

An outlet, WTMJ-TV, said the deaths of the two happened after deputies looked into a 911 call of a suicidal woman. She also warned that her car would be driven into the lake with her daughter inside.

She mentioned the caller ended the call when she was at the spot, but police think the pair left the place and went to another district.

Later, the location was checked, and nothing was there. Later, the mother of Brister, Jackie, called 911 and told them that her daughter had been gone since Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. She added that her car and wallet were gone.

Jackie said something was wrong with it and that it had never happened before. Next, they assure her that they’ll find the car.

The other grandma of Tyrielle got a call from Jackie and claimed that a woman saw the two before they drowned in the lake. She reported that the lady said she was at Bradford Beach then.

She added that the girl ran up and told her that her mom wanted to kill her. The lady added that Khalilah told her that she was tired and wanted to be in the water, revealing Brister’s mother.

After the bodies in the car drowned in the lake, Jackie blamed the police for not doing anything after her daughter and granddaughter were reported missing. She believes that the deaths of the Milwaukee woman and her daughter and the decision to drive a car into a lake could have been avoided.
