A YOUNG mom and her 10-month-old twin boys were found dead in a car submerged in Georgia pond this week.
On Friday, the remains of ShaQuia Philpot, 25, and little Caysen and Cassius Williams were discovered inside the vehicle, which was under water.
The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is investigating their deaths after the family’s bodies were uncovered in a pond, just north of Augusta Regional Airport.
The car they were in was found shortly before 5 pm on Friday by a person who had come to Mayor’s Pond, which is off Lock and Dam Road.
The sheriff’s office helped Richmond County Fire Department and discovered the bodies when the car was removed from the water.
The Richmond County Criminal Investigative Division and coroner’s office were also called out.
The family were pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities later identified the victims as Philpot and her two children, the Augusta Chronicle reported.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation will be carrying out the autopsies.
An official cause of death has not been determined.

The children’s grandmother issued several emotional statements on Facebook, saying ShaQuia, Caysen and Cassius have “gained their wings.”
“The Lord only loan my daughter ShaQuia Philpot to me for 25 years my twins grandson Cassius and Caysen William for 10 months,” she wrote. “Lord I didn’t know that you was going to call them home July 24, 2020. RIH.”
“We all loved y’all but God loves y’all more. This is so hard to believe,” the grieving grandma continued. “But I know we can’t question God.”
