Columbia County Sheriff's Department spokesman Murray Smith, said investigators believe the older girl shot her 16-year-old brother. He also stated that the younger girl was involved in the killing in some way.

"There's no real rhyme or reason to it," Smith told the Gainesville Sun. "Obviously there were problems with the children."

A friend's mom called police after the 11-year-old called to say she and her sister had run away from home.

The girls were found by a police officer Monday night walking to White Springs, about 4 miles from their home.

According to the police report, the older girl, when first questioned, sat putting on makeup and attempted to dodge many questions. She would eventually break down in tears and admit that she had killed her brother.

The boy's body was found on the living room floor of the family home.

While they were away on a trucking job, Misty and Keith Kornegay's daughters, aged 11 and 15, killed their older brother, police in Florida said.
