miriam carey familyAs EURweb and numerous other outlets reported, Miriam Carey was shot to death Thursday afternoon after first trying to ram her car through a White House barricade then leading Capitol police through a high-speed chase.

It ended near the Capitol in a hail of bullets.

But Miriam’s sisters claim the shooting was “unjustified,” and  say, “It just doesn’t seem real!”

Carey’s sisters spoke with reporters in Brooklyn, New York Friday night after returning from Washington following the grim task of identifying their loved one’s body. They said they were “still very confused as to why Miriam is not alive.”

They told reporters gathered in front of their Bedford Stuyvesant home the the shooting of their unarmed sister by Capitol police was “unjustified.”

The sisters also spoke about being gravely concerned that Carey’s infant daughter was in the back seat during the entire incident. Police say Carey’s daughter was not seriously harmed and was placed in protective custody. Her whereabouts right now, are unknown to the family.

Amy Carey-Jones said that she believed her sister was struggling with postpartum depression, but could not explain the depths of her mental condition that could have lead to that fatal confrontation.

Federal investigators in Washington told reporters Friday that Miriam Carey had been under the delusion that President Obama was communicating with her and had her home city of Stamford, CT under “lock down.”  But back in Brooklyn Friday night, Carey-Jones said, “We don’t know why Miriam ended up going to DC, we don’t know if her depression contributed to her taking that ride.”

As far as the family could determine, Carey has no political agenda that might have prompted the incident.
