Family of victims in murder-suicide offered grief counseling

March 17, 2018

Grief counselors were brought in Saturday to talk to the devastated Brooklyn family that lost four members — the youngest a 1-year-old girl — in a horrific murder-suicide.

The counseling session at the Riverdale Osborne Towers in Brownsville was put together by the Brooklyn DA’s office and Councilwoman Inez Barron.

On Wednesday, Terrance Briggs, 27, killed three members of his family, including his and Olivia Callender’s baby daughter Laylay, before turning the gun on himself. The dead included Briggs’ stepfather Loyd Drain Jr., 57, and his 16-year-old namesake Loyd III. Laylay’s grandmother, Patricia Green, 53, stumbled onto the carnage when she returned home that morning.
