A 44-year-old woman and her two 9-year-old twin daughters are dead after the woman intentionally drove a vehicle into the Kalamazoo River Monday night, according to Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety Chief Karianne Thomas.

Police confirmed the three deaths on the morning of Tuesday, June 18.

Two other young females, younger than 10, had been in the car, and were let out before it went into the river, Thomas said. With the help of family members, the girls made contact with police 11 p.m. June 17, Thomas said, and they acknowledged the car went into the river.

Police made contact with the two girls at Walgreens, at Riverview Drive and Gull Road, police said.

“They were young girls, so that information was pieced together with the help of family members and officers on the scene,” Thomas said.

She called the incident a tragedy, and said the investigation continues.

Police believe the female intentionally drove into the river with the two children inside, Thomas said.

This one is going to move fast so post any new info you guys find on it.

At least two people were dead after a Michigan mom drove a car — in which both of her children may have been passengers — into the Kalamazoo River late Monday, leaving authorities Tuesday to scour the water for "a possible third victim" and determine if the tragedy was intentional.

A vehicle with two victims inside was discovered by a dive team in the water near Verburg Park around 11 p.m. Monday, The Detroit News reported.

Investigators, including some with the Michigan State Police, were working to recover the vehicle and a "possible third victim."

Public safety officers in Kalamazoo, a city roughly 50 miles south of Grand Rapids, were alerted to the scene when two girls "who were upset and trying to locate their uncle" called them.

The girls' uncle was eventually located — but by that point, the deaths had already occurred.
