Three found dead in Brunswick County

READ MORE: Three found dead in Brunswick County
Shock and disbelief in one Brunswick County neighborhood after the discovery of three people, including a child were found dead inside a holden beach mobile home. The public is in shock to find out that this wasn't just a random act of violence but a murder suicide. Officials responded to a mobile home just after six o'clock Friday night, off of Boones Neck Road in Holden Beach after family members discovered the bodies of Josh Outlaw, 23, Angel Williams, 29, and her five-year-old daughter Asya Jackson. Preliminary autopsy results did show that all victims were killed by gun shot wounds. Forensic evidence found at the crime scene points to this shooting as a double murder suicide where Josh Outlaw shot both victims and then turned the gun on himself. Investigators still haven't determined a motive behind the shooting or a relationship between the three, but they do know Williams was renting her mobile from relatives of Outlaw. The five-year-old killed in the shooting was a kindergarten student at Supply Elementary. School officials have been notified and will be on hand to provide counseling if necessary.

ok honestly no one really

ok honestly no one really knows exactly what happened that night...the only ones that do know what happened cannot tell you cause there not here anymore.Im so tired of people accusing people..accusing Josh,or anyone else is not going to bring them just makes it 100 times harder on all the friends and family of all the victims...and some people should think about what they say about people and realize that Josh had friends and family that love him just like Nikki and Asya people need to watch there mouths and be more respectable of others feelings because like I said no one knows for sure what happened so until you do just drop it.Even if he did do it(I dont believe he did) accusing him and calling him a killer isnt going to bring any of them back so why hurt Josh's family and friends by calling there loved one a murderer.i mean its hard enough dealing with the death of someone you loved so dearly and then on top of it you have people telling you "how can you feel sorry for him"..the people who say that stuff obviously didnt know Josh cause if they did they wouldnt be saying that because anyone who knew Josh knows there is no way he would hurt anyone...I happen to be a close friend of Josh's..I have known him a long time and no matter what anyone says I refuse to believe he had anything to do with the deaths of Nikki and Asya...things just dont add up...something funny is going on...and eventually the truth will come out. RIP Josh,Nikki and Asya



I absolutely cannot

I absolutely cannot understand why anyone is feeling sorry for this Josh guy... it's ridiculous. How is everyone not furious with him for taking the life of an innocent little girl & her mother???!?!?!?!? It was so hateful & cruel.. a purely evil inexcusable act of violence. There's nothing they could have done to deserve this. So sorry that this tragedy happened.. R.I.P. To Angel & Asya!!

Joshua outlaw

To the person whom responded above. Maybe you did not read the same article I did. It did not say that Mr.Outlaw was the shooter, it said he is the suspected shooter. I know Josh very well and I know without a shadow of a doubt that he was a great person and that this is a tragic loss to the community. This is a young man that served his country and fought in Iraq three tours. Don't you think thats a bit much for any child ( 18 when you go in and 23 when you get out is a child). There are a lot of questions about this case that are not in the news. Maybe before people start saying things that family members of all involved may read you might want to put yourself in their shoes. My heart goes out to all.

R.I.P nikkiand asya

nikki was my best friends girl for a minute and asya was his baby girl. they were both beautiful people full of life and love. this has been an enormous wake up call to all of their friends and our hearts go out to mario, and nikki's and little asya's family.they will live for ever in our hearts and we will see them again in heaven. much love, Trish and girls.

suiside or murder?

im not to sure abought this mario guy. he is the same guy that was involved in mellissas death last year. some thing seem real funny abought this mess. i dont know these pople.but i know people that know them. but i did know mellissa. she was not the kind of person to take her own life.she would never let her babys suffer. and i know the baby in this story belongs to mario. so i dont know, looks funny to me.


I don't know who you are that wrote the comment about Melissa H. and Mario but I agree that something is not quite what it seems. There are more sucides in Brunswick County that I care to think about. Everything is not what it seems and I know Josh was a good person and no one would ever dream he could ever of done something like this. He wasn't ever in trouble, he took care and loved his family, he loved his country, he was a good citizen. So then why would you suddenly snap and go to a strangers home and kill them. Community members say they saw others in and out of the home and with the victim that night that were friends of Mario's. No one seems to think this is a little wierd. Also the victim was shot at in her borrowed car a month or two before this and it was ruled that she was mistaken for someone else, and by the way yes her child was in the car when she was shot at.I do know things are not alway's as they appear at first glance.


RIP Josh,Angel and Asya I didnt know Angel and Asya but I did know Josh They will all be missed dearly. I Miss you Josh and I love you always

we love you

we will always love both nickie and asya always and forever.. our prayers go out to there family.. they were both one of a kind.. they will never be forgotten..

God Bless

God Bless the Little Ones...They deserve no harm!!!!
