She guesses she was gone about ten to fifteen minutes before returning.

When she arrived, she says the scene had totally changed

"I seen police lights, ambulance, firefighters. That's when I walked over to the crime scene and I seen a white sheet on the ground," Aubrie describes.

She would later get a call from her father, telling her her sister had been killed along with Pepper.

"What happened from the time I left.  Who'd they get into an argument with them," she questioned Monday afternoon.

"I don't know how...I don' t know when I'll be able to get over it.  I just don't know how to put it in words."
