"She was the light in everybody's life that she touched. She's going to be missed by a lot of people," the woman's mother said.

A 9-year-old, a 7-year-old, a 3-year-old, and a 3-and-a-half-month-old are now forever without their mother. Casey Allen, 32, was allegedly killed by her husband Christopher Dean Snow, 31, a day after their first wedding anniversary. He is said to have stabbed his wife multiple times. Allen's family is shocked by her tragic and senseless death. Her sister, Tiffany Agee, said that the couple seemed to be happy with Allen even praising Snow for being a great father and stepfather.
Allen’s ex-husband, the father of three of her children, called Agee to deliver the heartbreaking news. “He said, ‘Casey is dead,'” the sister, beside herself, told Atlanta-based NBC affiliate WXIA. “And I just, I just threw my phone, and I started screaming, and I just – I just got into a fetal position … And I just kept screaming. ‘No, no, no, no.'” Snow and Allen had just welcomed a child together in December 2022. “She was the happiest I had seen her in so, so long,” Agee told the TV station.
“She kept saying how great of a dad he (Snow) is and great of a stepdad he is to her other three kids. I never expected it to be this way. He really did bring out a lot of happiness in her,” she recalled.

The late mom's sibling did admit that Snow had allegedly gotten physical with Allen early in the relationship but didn't share any more details. “She really was the best mom,” Agee added, as she fought back tears. “She would do anything for her kids.” Allen’s best friend since the age of 12, Amber Wilson added, “It’s such a terrible thing that’s happened to such a good person. We always talked about and wanted to have our own families when we got older.”
Christopher Dean Snow of Gainesville has since been charged with felony murder in his wife's homicide, according to a statement by Gainesville Police Department. Police found him shortly after his wife's body was discovered in their apartment. The 31-year-old was involved in a "serious crash" on I-85 in Gwinnett County; police did not pursue Snow before the crash.
"Parents are not supposed to bury their children. It's just not right," Allen's mom Alicia Claire shared. "She was the light in everybody's life that she touched. She's going to be missed by a lot of people." A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family pay for funeral expenses. “Three of the children are now living full-time with their father while the infant lives with Casey’s former in-laws,” the fundraiser stated. “We appreciate all love and support and want to give these children the best possible.”
