Husband and wife influencers killed in murder-suicide in Atlanta
A married couple who had recently moved from St. Louis to Atlanta to expand their business were killed in a murder-suicide.
Keianna Burns, 44, is accused of shooting and killing her husband, Ronnell burns, 46, before turning the trigger on herself, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The couple were the parents of a happy blended family with eight children, had thousands of followers as influencers, and had a swarm of clients and followers through their various business ventures.
But things took a turn for the worse when Keianna and Ronnell were home alone just before 9 p.m. on November 6. Their teenage daughter called the police to report a marital dispute somewhere other than her home.
Police arrived at their home in Gwinnet County and found the deceased couple. Neighbors reported hearing gunshots coming from inside the house, Voice of the People STL reported.
Details surrounding the murder-suicide are still scarce but many are shocked and saddened by the tragic love affair.
Keianna and Ronnell opened 4 His Glory Ministries and Kritique Designs Beauty & Barber Salon in their hometown of St. Louis before moving to Georgia earlier this year to expand.
Keianna posted a Facebook Live video last month cheering on her followers while apparently alluding to her own personal struggles.
âI just got up here because you have to be prepared for life changes no matter what,â she said. âI’m trying to cheer on someone because things in your life can change for the better or for the worse overnight, literally. And if you don’t feel strong enough, there are things that can make you come out. “
She also mentioned how she struggled with her own sanity after the big move which was difficult for their family of 10.
âLike real chats, I have some really positive people on my calendar and they help me get through my dark days because yes, I have them,â Keianna said.
âHonestly, if I’m perfectly honest, I have one right now. And the reason I’m going to live is sometimes that you have to reach out and tell people that you need love. You need support, you need care. You just need a hug. And honestly you guys I need it. I need it now.
Keianna was seen dancing with a young girl in a video hours before her death. Eight years ago her husband appeared on Divorce court where he was accused of cheating on his ex-wife and damaging his credit, Christian Post reported. Ronnell changed his life and remarried Keianna. Her fans continued to send condolences in her comments section on social media.
