The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said a custody dispute led to a double-murder suicide early Sunday afternoon.

Investigators said Brandy Hutchins had a court order to give her 10-year-old son to his father.

When that court order was not followed, deputies were forced to search for her.

Deputies said they found Hutchins, her son and her 19-year-old daughter dead in their home in the Waverly area of Lake Wales.

Investigators said she killed both of her children before killing herself.
