Nearly one month ago, Jason Worley took to Reddit for advice on how to divorce his wife one year after he’d caught her cheating.
“I caught my wife cheating on me over a year ago. I stayed with her for the sake of our children, but I haven’t been able to get it off of my mind since. It has been 476 days since I confronted her about it,” Jason wrote in the subreddit category “Relationship Advice” on November 5th.
Jason explained that he had found explicit text messages between his wife, Brandi, and their neighbor, at which point he told Brandi he was leaving.
“I tell her that I am leaving her, she tells me that she will make sure I never see my kids again if I do. She planned on using the fact that I had attempted suicide in high school to prove me unfit to have the children… It was at that moment I realized she was going to drag the kids through hell if I left her so I swallowed my feelings and begged her to stay,” Jason wrote.
“I’m afraid that after this much time, and the fact that I begged her back, that to say that I want a divorce now would only make her more vindictive towards my children and I. I just feel like I have put myself so deep in a hole that I can never get back out,” he continued.
On November 17th, Jason’s absolute worst nightmare came true, when Brandi killed their two children after he asked for a divorce.
“I just stabbed myself, and I killed my two children,” Brandi Worley said while speaking with a 911 dispatcher on the night of the horrific murders.
Brandi reportedly cut the throats of her children, Tyler, 7, and daughter Charlee, 3, before stabbing herself in the neck.
Since the murders, Brandi has been behind bars without bond.
After news of the killings broke, Jason took to Reddit before the thread was closed.
“I just can’t help but wonder that if I had slept on the couch like she had suggested instead of an air mattress in the basement then maybe I could have saved my children or at the very least died with them. A father has one job in this world, to protect his children, and I failed to do that,” he wrote.
