Children Found Dead in Hotel After Mom Crashes Her Car

Heartbreaking 9

crime sceneAs if a mother's suicide attempt wasn't bad enough news, police responding to a car crash outside a California supermarket said they were sent to a second crime scene where the horrors were even worse. The woman's two children were found dead in a hotel room, victims of an alleged murder-suicide attempt by their mom.

Although the tragedies occured in Southern California, the mother hailed from Scottsdale, Arizona and was driving a car with Georgia plates. Police now have to track down the children's father before they will release their identity.

Their mother's name and mugshot are also being withheld, but she has already been charged with murder.

Cops say the 42-year-old had purposely crashed her car into protective poles surrounding an electric box near a supermarket in an alleged suicide attempted and was combative when they arrived. It was statements she made while allegedly struggling with paramedics that led police to the third-floor room at a Hampton Inn & Suites in Santa Ana where her two children were found.

The heartbreaking investigation is continuing.

What do you make of this sad situation?

She should have given her children up before offing herself. What an idiot. That b deserves to rot for life. Make that woman live in a rubber room in prison so she can be forced to remember what she did for many years and be tortured by it but be unable to take her own life. If you want to die, do it, but do not force your kids to go with you before their time. They did nothing to deserve that.

I say murder her. The punishment should fit the crime! I do not want to have to pay for another P.O.S. sitting in prison, Kill her and let her meet her maker, they will take care of the rest!

The worst part is that her kids were 10 and 13. They had to have known what she was doing. Unless she poisoned them. Poor kids :-(
