Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS.

  1. thts weak, man….if she wntd to top herself she shd left those kids alone.

  2. Republicans hate women. She was denied medicaid more then once. She was living on $900 a month. Her abusive husband was ordered to pay $300 child support and refused. Her abusive husband forced her to have sex with him! Republicans like all religious hypocrites hate women and feel its there responsibility to raise there kids even if that woman is already on a nervous breakdown like this one is!

  3. There is always only one reason women murder their children and that is to cause the father as much pain and grief as possible and to get attention. Those who kill themselves also at least take themselves out of the picture and stop themselves from killing again. This is not a political issue nor a financial one; this is a case of a woman killing her kids to spite the father. There is NO viable reason ever for murdering one’s children…and that includes an abusive husband. See, here’s how it works: an adult, e.g., a grown woman, can take steps to remove herself form harm’s way…a child is at the mercy of the parent. And there is no, repeat no excuse for killing a child.

  4. Sky,

    I agree.

  5. you’re wrong you know. a mother could kill her children to protect them from what she deemed a terrible future. if she thought life were so bad that she felt she had to end her life why would she leave her children behind in a world she deemed uninhabitable. thing deeply about this issue and you will see there are three types of maternal familicide a) to avenge someone b) to save her children further heartache and pain as perceived by herself c) psychotic
    so sad, so so sad

  6. It is very apparent that there is probably little known about the woman. Seeing that her youngest was only 8 months, she could’ve been suffering from pospartum depression and the pressures of life just added to the aggravation… But, there are any different possibilities as to why she commited this horrible act.

  7. theres no way in hell she should have taken matters into her own hands by kiling innocint children.that coward bitch should have taken her own life.
