(Scroll down for video) A woman in Pennsylvania, posted a long suicide note on Facebook to her abusive husband before murdering their 1-year-old son and killing herself.

Shrewsbury Township police said that they have launched an investigation after John R. Shermeyer was found choked to death and 40-year-old Sheri Shermeyer was found dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound.

Pennsylvania State Police said that they went to the woman’s home at 12069 Baltimore Street, after concerned people saw her suicide note on Facebook.

Sheri blamed the murder suicide on her abusive husband.

Before the murder suicide, the woman wrote on Facebook that her child’s father will never see his son again.

“You don’t deserve to have a son or to have a legacy. Why should you have your name carried on? You are a nasty man,” Sheri wrote on Facebook.

“You are hateful, ugly and downright mean. Now, you can have the single life back since you seemed to be so happy being a stumbling drunk. You can have all the pill popping, smoking and drinking you want. You can do all that without me and John,” Sheri added.

“Good bye, good riddance, wish I never wasted these past years with you. Hope I don’t see you in Hell,” Sheri concluded her suicide note.
