Brinley Ann Edwards
One gun: An entire family, vanished
A tuft of blonde hair, carefully arranged into a bright bow.
She was a middle child, a little girl between her two brothers. She was adored by her family; her younger brother constantly trailed her like a duckling. She was always looking to learn something more: A family friend remembered her as “wise beyond her years” and said she spoke like an adult.
Brinley Ann Edwards was 4 years old when she died on July 9, 2018, alongside the rest of her family in Wilmington, Delaware, in a brown-shingled house that was full of life and rhythm. After he shot her, Brinley’s father killed himself.
