A Florida mother reportedly killed herself after murdering her three-year-old twins by administering them a lethal dose of meth inside a parked car.

The bodies of Andrea Langhorst, 35, and her two twin children, Olivia and Adam Dryer, were discovered inside a parked vehicle in Melbourne, Florida, on March 20. According to the Brevard County Medical Examiner’s Office, all three had methamphetamine in their systems when they were discovered. The twins’ deaths were determined to be a homicide and it was determined that they died of methamphetamine intoxication, Daily News reported.

According to the autopsy conducted by the Medical Examiner’s Office, the mother took her own life after overdosing on a combination of methamphetamine and cocaine.

The incident came to light after a passerby called 911 to report a “bad stench” coming from a parked vehicle with fogged-up windows. When the officers responded to the scene, they discovered the mother and children dead inside the abandoned car.

Andrea Langhorst reportedly lacked a permanent address at the time she and her children were discovered dead. Officers stated that it appeared as if the family was living out of the vehicle along the east coast of Florida, New York Post reported.

Meanwhile, the twins’ father is currently in the Brevard County Jail awaiting trial in an unrelated case.

According to the authorities, Langhorst and her children had not been seen alive in 11 days before the gruesome discovery of their bodies. Meanwhile, Langhorst’s father, Randy Langhorst, said that he had not spoken to his daughter since March 11 and had also contacted the police to help find her.

“We were looking for her and hadn’t heard anything from her,” he said. “That was unusual for her. We wouldn’t have daily contact with her, but this was a while. She was a free spirit, smart as a whip, beautiful, but lived her life to the beat of her own drummer. It’s just a tragedy.”

“The twins were her pride and joy,” Randy Langhorst continued. “All I can think is that maybe…maybe the car was running and she fell asleep, maybe the fumes overwhelmed them. I don’t know.”

The father said his daughter occasionally stayed at Airbnb rentals and that he had tried to convince her to bring the twins over to stay with him.
