This is beyond belief. I cannot imagine a mother stabbing their child to death, much less 4 of them. Maybe there is some mental illness involved. Someone should have stepped up before to help her. However, I do not know if she has a mental illness. I am grasping at straws here to understand this. Now 4 children are dead. What short lives they had.

  1. Heartbreaking. …

  2. I cannot find any negative information about the mother. Can’t imagine a motive strong enough. Must involve mental illness.
    Most cases of murder by child abuse have a history of abuse, family protective service visits, violent husband or step-parent, boyfriend, or extreme religiousity. At least the 7 y/o escaped and should be able to help authorities understand why. Unimaginably tragic.
