Recently the media has covered a number of stories about Mothers killing their own children. An Incident that occured a while back and the circumstances surrounding it are very sad. A Mother of Four stripped her children down 1 @ a Time and one by one she threw them off a Pier into the San Francisco Bay, as ( This is what really is Sickening ) Bystandards watched. No one intervened. The Childrens ages ranged from 9 months to 7 years old. Once I find the article I'll post it, but for now here's another LOST MOTHER...
A San Francisco woman charged with murdering her 3-year-old daughter and trying to murder her 4-year-old son had been despondent over the breakup of her marriage and had been seeing a therapist, police said Thursday.
Linda Woo, 39, allegedly lit a portable barbecue Wednesday in a Subaru Outback in the garage of her Ingleside Terrace home. The fumes killed her daughter, Olive Murphy, and left her son, Carter Murphy, in critical condition from apparent carbon monoxide poisoning.
The boy is expected to survive, but authorities don't know yet whether he suffered any brain damage, Assistant District Attorney Harry Dorfman said.
"It's very sad," said Inspector Karen Lynch of the homicide detail. "All of her friends knew she was depressed over her marriage ending."
Woo's acquaintances told police that she had talked recently of suicide, but they thought the therapist she had been seeing was helping, Lynch said.
"They were all trying to help her," Lynch said. "No one saw this coming."
When Woo didn't bring the children to day care Wednesday, the school contacted her estranged husband, Gavin Murphy, police said. Murphy called friends, one of whom discovered the mother and children in the garage at 370 Moncada Way and phoned 911.
Police found a note on the car's dashboard. They said the note suggested Woo was upset over the breakup of her marriage and had been depressed.
She told a neighbor last week that she didn't want to live and that there was "something wrong'' with her brain, authorities say.
Police said Woo had apparently led the children to believe that they were going on a camping trip in the Subaru, which she had borrowed from a friend.
Prosecutors filed murder and attempted murder charges Thursday against Woo, who works as a principal project manager at Pacific Gas and Electric Co. in San Francisco.
She was being treated in the jail ward of San Francisco General Hospital and is expected to recover. Arraignment was scheduled for Monday.
"I'm sure that there are going to be evaluations of her mental condition,'' Dorfman said.
