Thread Name: BS: Women who drowned her 5 children
Subject: RE: BS: Women who drowned her 5 children
My local evening paper (in England) was delivered last evening and on the front page in letters over an inch high was the banner "Mother Admits Killing Baby." The full story was given on the inside pages. She had smothered her ten-week old baby daughter on New Year's Day. Tragedy knows no frontiers I am sad to say. A single mother who suffered from depression, she believed she was protecting the child from being abused.
