Wagener, S.C. -- Mable Sessions was outside her house when a 7-year-old girl came walking up to her.

The little girl walked more than 4 miles with her baby brother in her arms to get help. She then led police to the crime scene on Daytona Road where they found three bodies: the child's mother, her aunt and grandmother.

When Sessions saw the girl she knew immediately she needed help.

"At first I didn't really know if she was an adult or a child so when she got closer, I walked towards her," Sessions said.

Right away, Sessions said she had a bad feeling about the situation.

"I kind of figured something was wrong when she walked over here with her little brother; I kind of felt nervous," Sessions said.

Sessions rushed the kids inside and called 911.

"When I got off the phone with the police I made sure they actually came here first to make sure the kids were OK and to make sure he didn't actually try to come here," she said.

She says the baby was crying and the little girl seemed in shock.

"She was calm and it's like she didn't understand what was going on, but she was brave, a brave little girl," Sessions said.

Even after police left with the two kids, Sessions was still feeling on edge.

"I was worried for the kids and the safety of myself, too," she said. "I didn't know if he was out in the woods somewhere."

However, the scariest part for her was that she knew Kenneth Myers well -- he lived down the road.

"It is kind of shocking," she said. "You would never think he would do something like that."

Sessions said it was fortunate she was there that night for the kids. She is a mother with three children, and she says if her kids were in need, she would want someone to help them, too.

Myers allegedly killed four women. He is said to have shot and killed ex-girlfriend Esther Baldwin at her house before killing himself as police were closing in on him.
