An 11-year-old girl horrifically discovered both of her parents dead from COVID-19 complications at their Missouri home last Thursday, according to local authorities.

The Mehlville couple, both in their 40s, had recently moved into their new home in St Louis, and were found dead on February 18. 

While the St. Louis County police did not identify the couple, social media posts from family and friends and obituaries identified the couple as Gregory and Erika Greenman 

Neighbors explained to KSDK that it was the couple’s 11-year-old daughter, their only child, who discovered them in the bed. 

‘To lose both parents at one time you know for an 11-year-old, it’s really tragic,’ said neighbor Chuck Duy.

‘Last year at Christmas time they came down to our door and gave us cookies. They were just the nicest people. We are praying for the girl and their family.’

Guy said that he spoke with family members who said that the woman had gone to the hospital. 

‘Supposedly she had gone to the hospital. They thought she had a stroke, but I guess it was due to COVID,’ Duy said. 

He added: ‘She tested positive, but they sent her home and then her husband meanwhile was home with a positive test for COVID, so they both were quarantined downstairs in their bedroom in their basement.’

‘It doesn’t make sense why God would allow this horrible virus take you both on the same day,’ said Erica Goodwin, a friend of the couple’s.

‘It doesn’t make sense why your beautiful baby girl lost both of her loving parents, why one of my closest friends lost her dear sister, or why our Firm lost two exceptional employees and friends. Our hearts are broken. Rest In Peace dear friends.
