Caleb Logan Butts

Age 15

Saint George, Georgia

Teen’s death left teachers, classmates heartbroken

From the photos she posted on Facebook, it looked like he had a great relationship with his mom.

She participated in events with him to raise awareness for children with special needs, like him. He was born with Down syndrome and grew up in a rural and peaceful community.

On Oct. 30, 2018, Caleb Logan Butts of Saint George, Georgia, 15, was found by his father with multiple gunshot wounds from a semiautomatic handgun. He and his grandmother died at the hands of his mother in a murder-suicide. His teachers and classmates at Baker County High School were heartbroken.
