    • She lived in Antioch and worked in SF. She started at 6:00 AM. She was in her home getting ready for work.

    • Thank you for the only respectful and appropriate comment. I too send my condolences and my thoughts and prayers to the family of these women.

    • two isn’t bad….remember a few years ago when it was like twenty, and we had 4 in one week right around december….

  1. Actually one was on her way to med school and the other was her mother. Milan owned her home and this was domestic violence… Think before you type!

    • Thank you for your response. I have known the Mother since high school and she was a beautiful person. May she and her daughter Rest In Peace.

    • So sad to read this. People are heartless especially hiding behind a screen. Insensitive jerks.

  2. Wow the people who are commenting who have no idea who Milan was and no idea about her life, her dedication to her family, and her contributions to her community. You heartless bastards. You sound like sick racist with these stupid ass assumptions when you know NOTHING! Milan isprired me to pursue my dreams, Miland was an excelllent mother depsite her obstacles, and Milan deserved to live a full life with her mother and her son in her new house that SHE WORKED HARD FOR! I love you Milan and will miss you so much bestfriend I can’t believe I will never see you again. I wish i just had one more chance to have lunch with you and us talk about all the bullshit we have to go through as black women but I jnow you’re in a better place. I promise I will always check in on Mason and make sure he good whatever he needs I got him FOR LIFE!!! I love you sooooo much!

    • I am so sorry for your loss. My condolences to to the famy and friends of these beautiful beings. Ignore the haters in the comments, ignorance is prevalent in this society, they are cowards, who can not hold their own. They blame others for their miserable lives, knowing full well they are hiding behind the illusion of what they believe to be privilege, by the skin of their teeth..

  3. Wow at some of these comment from adults… why??? Why??? Why??? Please if you don’t have anything nice to say please just stop it… these ladies have family and friend that will read these comment… SENDING MY CONDOLENCES TO THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

  4. My prays go out to the family.. all I can say. if you are pre judging people .you must have something to hide. Or don’t have Brain. When someone gets killed. You show that you have no class or respect for anyone’s feeling. Which makes you plain evil

  5. My prays go out to the family.. all I can say. if you are pre judging people .you must have something to hide. Or don’t have Brain. When someone gets killed. You show that you have no class or respect for anyone’s feeling. Which makes you plain evil

  6. The 2 women you are degrading were hard working women. And I mean careers. One of them had a small child. They were at home and there was an invasion, you rude, narcissistic jerks!!
    A child lost his Mother and Grandmother and all most of you say is, “up to no good, ghetto”. I wouldn’t be surprised if the particular PSYCHOPATH who talked about the “PURGE”…may even have something to do with it.
    Just cold and sick!!! And when it comes out different than you assumed, none of you cowards will have the guts to admit your wrong.

  7. Maybe the writer just meant people killing one another for nothing. You shouldn’t read so much into such few words. These two women might have been good people, but most murders are performed by those we know. So it begs the question, who would want to do this to them? Someone alluded to an ex or family member. I don’t know about you, but most of us don’t associate with those types of people. So the probability of that happening to me is extremely improbable. Either it’s another sad event in Antioch, and I’m sorry for the family.

  8. So sad. My prayers go out to the friends and family of these two woman. The people who judge them are sorry … people. And so true, people who judge are the ones hiding some something. RIP to mother and daughter.

  9. Condolences to the family. I saw their profiles and they looked like great, hard-working women who loved their family. Milan graduated from UCLA. So stop your ignorant negative comments.

  10. Reading these comments😔 you people have no idea who she was. But I do. She was my sister and her mother. Not ghetto. UCLA graduate, teacher, mentor, mother, PHD, home owner. I could never be so heartless and careless with my words. May god have mercy on all of you. I hope you never experience the pain of losing a loved one. I hope of something like this happens to you people would choose the words they spread in the atmosphere a little better then you have for my sister . God bless you all

    • May God be with you and your family during this difficult time. Sending my condolences to you and your family.

    • I’m so sorry for your loss. She sounded like great person. Unfortunately Antioch is filled with low life’s, and people are just frustrated and tired of it. Please try and not take it personal. The residents are desparate for change, and things are not getting better with this type of senseless killing. Most crimes/murders in Antioch involve career criminals, so it’s easy to assume the worst. Well wishes to you and your family.

    • Very well said… I grew up with the Scott family… Lakeveiw was my hometown till I moved 2 Texas in 2007… I went to school with Katherine and Kathleen Scott… I knew them all… My heart is so broken and My Condolence to the Scott Family of their terrible Loss… I pray and hope they catch who did this… My heart breaks for lil mason who lost his mom and grandma… Lord Jesus give the Scott Family strength to get threw this horrible horrible crime and loss😞 And for u people with ur stupid A$$ comments… U really don’t know nothing and stop hating…😞 Ms Roe

  11. You are an idiot. I worked with the mother at GENENTECH and her daughter worked for the CITY AMD COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO look it up. You don’t know them and talking out your ass. Also, the mom’s shift was early morning and so they leave early to beat traffic. Don’t know if you have ever drove to South SF but traffic is a beast if you don’t leave in time….. IDIOT!

    • YOU!!! Youre on here sharing personal information about these people. Youre just a fuking co-worker, let the family choose what to put on here about there personal business. Get a fuking life!

  12. Someone above said this was a domestic situation, but the artocle reads like kt was random. So which is it?

  13. Many comments have been deleted for a variety of reasons… keep it clean and stay off the race card.

  14. I pray for the family. We live around the corner and very disturbing. I would like to know if this was random. Family dispute. Or home invasion. No one knows what happened. Very important to this community to know. Too close to home. Very very sad.
    I cannot stop thinking about these women. I hate guns.

    • Guns arent the issue ! Bad people do bad things, its reality. In 2018 owning a gun is a must, especially around here. Anybody can get an illegal gun in an hour for the right price, the black market for this will never ever go away.

  15. My condolences go out to the families of these two victims. My heart breaks for the fear they suffered at the hands of a vicious person. Rest easy sweet angels.

  16. Hard work and be good to people will never fail you. NEVER take anything you dont earn. Life will be good.

  17. Was it random or domestic? Random is scary, and if it was domestic – you’re hanging with the wrong crowd. Attending UCLA has nothing to do with the type of lifestyle people lead. It’s an institution of higher learning, like any other university

      • I attended UCLA (undergrad) and USD (grad school). I’ve never lived in East County, but one of our young adult children lives in Discovery Bay – the reason I read ECT.

        UCLA is a great school (GO BRUINS!) but I stand by my statement that higher education has nothing to do the lifestyle some people chose to live. If this was random – my statement doesn’t apply.

  18. Can’t wrap this around my head, this does not seem real. Ardoin you will be truly missed, you always pushed me to do better and always wanted everyone to do what was best. I love you, Masson now has two angels watching over him.

  19. What bothers me about all the negative comments is that no one seems to know what happened in this case at all whether you’re against it or for it but the majority of people who are leaving the negative comments are white, saying things such as low life ,section 8 ,not working they know nothing about these victims…smh my name is Albert my number is 707,,,,,712,,,,3766 if you’re so tough why don’t you give me a call you leaving comments in a family is in deep pain two generations have been lost in the child is it without a grandmother and a mother grow up get a life and act like adults instead of leaving dumb comments

    • I tried calling, but you didnt answer! No sense coming on here trying to act tough and posting a number to call, then you dont answer it. Whats your excuse now? Didnt hear it ringing? Taking a shit? Dont be putting out your number, then not answer it tough guy. Stay in the 707 with all the other wannabee tough guys, be dont play out here in the 925.

  20. Its pretty ironic to read about people telling others to not judge, but then they judge others in the same comment. So is this domestic or not? Someone said it was, but the article doesnt support that theory. Also, why is the Special Victims Unit investigating this case and not the homicide unit?

  21. Wow Sickening, Praying that they find the killer or killers. R.I.P TO BOTH BEAUTIFUL MOM & DAUGHTER. Prayers for the son Milan left behind, and Grandson Vilanda left as well.
