    PA - Twins Adam & Eve Smalls, 18 mos, murdered, Philadelphia, 24 May 2012

    A 41 year old mother is being questioned after her 18 month old twin boy and girl were found dead in a Tacony home. A 4 year old was rushed to the hospital and her condition has not been released. Apparently her mother gave her pills. The mother allegedly tried to kill herself by slitting her wrists.

    This article quotes neighbors as saying mom is a Nurse and dad a Corrections Officer, but who knows? They had a slew of police on the scene and alllllllllllllllllllllllll the neighbors were out. I had wondered why the helicopter was hovering.

    How da*n sad is that? How very sad.

    'tried' to kill herself

    GMAFB - these people who succeed at killing their babies but not themselves are such a joke

    hope the older child makes it ok and hope dad can recover from this

    It would be so much better if they would just do themselves first.

    I, too, find it remarkable how often parents are able to successfully kill their children, but botch their own suicide. Poor little babies. I hope the 4-year-old will be okay. So sorry for the father.

    I am really sad by this. I really think with all the laws in this world, something should be mandatory about moms with you children getting checked out every 6 months. Because most don't realize they need help. And yes, not everyone does but to kill your own babies there must be something wrong.

    I think they had warning signs . I hope this doesnt come down to a religiuos belief.

    Police say a mother is suspected in the death of her twin babies, an 18-month-old girl Eve and boy named Adam, before attempting to take her own life – inside their home in the 6800 block of Ditman Street

    I'm so glad I didn't read this yesterday. My twin boys turned 6.

    This has me furious!

    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    I have NO words at this time

    http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/201...ies-in-tacony/

    Investigators believe a Philadelphia woman killed her twin babies and attempted to kill her young daughter and then herself because she thought the children’s father was having an affair with a family member.

    Makes ya wonder, being named Adam and Eve. Sort of reminds me of Andrea Yates in a way. She was obsessed with the religion aspect of it and that was her reasoning behind killing her kids.

    I guess we'll see.

    Justice for Travis


    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    Sounds like the murder trial in which I was a juror. The man killed his daughter in order to get his wife back for supposedly cheating on him. These people are nuts.

    Note Filly is in no way a police officer or an anchor woman despite my winning personality. I do not know this "mom" nor her "man". They are reported to be married, but have different names.

    However one of my dearest friends lives there. Not on that block, but there. She did not know the couple, but friends of hers on that block said they did and the woman was actually very nice. Again this is heresay. Not heresay is please say a prayer for the Officers that responded as they are devastated naturally.

    Not heresay is this had nothing to do with religion. It had to do with: "This is why I killed your kids". Jealousy, revenge and Lord knows whatever else that is. Leaving those notes would indicate the woman thought she would kill herself as well.

    Keeponsearching is right. There's something real wrong with you to murder your children.

    My friend saw who supposedly was the dad and some guys moving stuff out of the house on her way to work today. Their house is smack right close to a corner of a really busy, busy street that leads from the Bridge from New Jersey. The news did try and interview the dad and he and someone else took a bunch of toys and a lil like crib and threw it in the trash truck.

    Again I don't know these folks, but live close enough by that the throngs of neighbors are usually related to one of us or someone that we grew up with.

    Littles RIP, and prayers for this little girl who is in hospital.

    What I do not get is if your "husband" had an affair with your family member and you're that upset and miffed why not try and kill his sorry behind? That's if there truly was an affair.

    It totally creeped me out that the father was already throwing away the babies things this morning. That seems very bizarre to me.
