Hours before fatally shooting her three young daughters and herself last Monday, authorities say a MI mom used a phony doctor's note to get the girls out of school.

Aubrianne Moore, 28, picked up the girls - Alaina Rau, 2, Cassidy Rodery, 6, and Kyrie Rodery, 8 - from their school last Monday.

She lured them out of the auto one by one in woods behind their great-grandparents' home in Kent County, Michigan, where she executed them with a hunting rifle.

Moore's boyfriend found the bodies of 6-year-old Cassidy Rodery, 8-year-old Kyrie Rodery and his daughter, 2-year-old Alaina Rau, inside the vehicle in his home's driveway over an hour later.

The mother then led each of her daughters into the woods separately before shooting them with a bolt-action hunting rifle, WOOD TV reported.

After the children were shot, Moore put them in her auto and drove them to her boyfriend's home, where she shot herself, authorities said.

According to court documents, a social worker recommended last September that Moore receive mental health treatment after she began exhibiting unusual behaviors. "Aubrianne is not eating believing food is being poisoned".

Chillingly, she also noted: "I believe the individual has mental illness and as a result of that mental illness the individual can reasonably be expected within the near future to intentionally or unintentionally seriously physically injure self or others".

She was even making statements on her social media pages that indicated she thought her children were in danger and investigators believe this may be what led her to Monday's heinous act.

"I've been with the sheriff's department for 29 years", said Kent County Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young.

Police said the paranoid mother believed she was "protecting the kids from something". A social worker requested that hospitalization after writing that Moore was suffering from paranoia, visual and auditory hallucinations.

LaJoye-Young stated that in her almost three decades of working with the sheriff's department that this "is one of the hardest cases I've ever hear about".

Graham said any money left over after funeral costs are covered will be used 'for legal purposes (trying to figure out how Aubrianne was neglected by doctors and treated to a lesser degree of help than what she needed)'. This is a very hard case, ' she said on Wednesday. It's heartbreaking that something like this happened in our community.
