These people make me sick. Kill yourself, but don't take the kids with you. We had one yesterday, I had just received the amber alert a bit earlier. https://www.dallasnews.com/news/miss...stodial-parent

Shockingly, the article mentions the killer's brother shot and killed their father in 1991.

I grew up in Miami. For a while there were frequent cases of women driving their car loads of kids into the water and drowning them saying some deity or another ordered them to do it. The mother always survived.

That sounds like post-partum psychosis

When I read this horrific story it reminded me of the Honey Sherman case in Canada, 1st ruled a murder suicide but then being investigated as a homicide. They 'looked' like a beautiful loving family. So sad.

The news report said they were discovered by police during a "wellness check" and they were "long dead." I think there's a lot more to this story.

Seems like some mental illness issues. We'll probably never know, but I wonder if she displayed any signs of mental illness. Seemingly stable and well-to-do person just snapped. Pretty scary......

Suicides are up, and I am not surprised. People can only take so much chaos and horror. We live in one of the worst times I can recall (I am 56). I can't think of a worse period of my life than 2016 - Now.

I do have some hope that things will get better, but that is not to say that I will continue to find my hope every day after day after day .......

Why?

If she hated her ex-husband very much, she could have killed him but didn't.
Together? They're not together, they're dead.

They may be buried together or cremated together but they won't even know it. There will never be any togetherness for any of them.

Keep me far, far away from anyone who exhibits their "obvious" loving by extinguishing the life of those they look at with a such a warped definition. There is not a scintilla of logic involved, it is the height of selfishness.

Let me get this straight. If the doctor off-ed herself, that's o.k. That is her right under the __________? But if the doctor off-ed herself and, before or contemporaneously with her suicide her two kids, that shows she was mentally ill.



Poster, you have a lot of 'plaining to do.

Who has a psychotic break out of nowhere, without any antecedents? I guess we can only stay tuned for details to hopefully emerge.
