Man kills mother, aunt, then himself inside Hall County home, police say

Hall County investigators believe a man killed his mother and aunt and then turned a gun on himself Wednesday morning in a Gainesville-area home.

Deputies were called to the 4200 block of Holland Drive shortly before 11:30 a.m. and found the bodies of two women in a bedroom, according to the Hall sheriff’s office. They were identified as 57-year-old twin sisters Ruth and Ruby Newberry.

“The body of a man, believed to be responsible for the women’s deaths, was found in the living room of the residence,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. “He was dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

The man was identified as the 24-year-old son of Ruth Newberry, Andrew Newberry.

The causes of the women’s deaths remained under investigation, the sheriff’s office said.

No further details, including a possible motive, were released Thursday.
