Mother Killed Her 6-Year-Old and Tried the Same to Her 8-Year-Old: Deputies

Jamie Michele Bradley-Brun, 37, is charged with murder and attempted murder after deputies out of Beaufort County, South Carolina responded to an address on Sam Doyle Driver in Saint Helena Island.

Upon their arrival, they discovered Mackaya Bradley-Brun, 6, dead. It is believed that Jamie Michele Bradley-Brun drowned her 6-year-old daughter and attempted to do the same to an 8-year-old child, but the survivor’s plea for help alerted others in the residence, allowing them to intervene and call 911.

An autopsy will be conducted by the Beaufort County Coroner’s Office to formally determine the cause of death.

The investigation is ongoing and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division’s Special Victim’s Unit-Department of Child Fatalities is working alongside the Sheriff’s Office. Jamie Michele Bradley-Brun is currently detained without bond in the Beaufort County Detention Center.
