Vigil planned for family killed in Columbia murder-suicide

Local News

The community will come together Tuesday night to pray and offer support just over a week after a mom and her four children were killed in a murder-suicide.  

Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles said attendees will pray for the victims, their families and the first responders who responded to the scene.  

Authorities were called to a home on Carters Creek Pike just after 6 p.m. last Monday after an adult child returned from work and discovered the bodies of Cynthia Collier, Bo Li, 14, Meigin Lin, 14, Lia Lin, 15, and Kaileigh Lin, 17. 

Collier was a stay-at-home mom and homeschooled the four teens.
