    CA - Athena Doyle accused of driving two sons off cliff, Humboldt Co., 3 Oct 2014

    http://lostcoastoutpost.com/2014/aug...r-two-young-c/

    This does not bode well. I know this woman from our boys attending the same school, and before that point volunteering on the council for that organization. She is an involved parent and mentioned her parents to me multiple times. If her mother is worried, I'm inclined to be, as well.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    CA - Woman arrested for driving kids off cliff. Previously subject

    Of missing persons case. (That thread appears to have been deleted after it seemed to be a false alarm.)

    A day before the crash, Doyle wrote a rambling status update on her Facebook page claiming that a shadowy organization known as the Illuminati was out to get her and her sons....

    Three weeks earlier, the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office issued a bulletin warning law enforcement officials that the McKinleyville woman might be suicidal.

    The warning went out after Doyle's mother contacted authorities saying she was concerned her daughter may harm herself or her children due to her mental problems.

    The following day, August 14, Ms Doyle reached out to the sheriff's office herself and arranged a meeting with officials.

    ‘The deputy determined she was not having any mental health issues and she and the children were in good health,’ the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release. ‘She told the deputy she was in the process of moving out [of] the area with her children and her mother was upset about that.’

    February 2015:

    On Friday, Athena Renee Doyle, 35, of McKinleyville, was scheduled to stand trial on two counts of attempted murder May 18 in Mendocino County Superior Court, according to Mendocino District Attorney Spokesman Mike Geniella.

    However, a previous psychiatric evaluation determined that Doyle was mentally unfit to stand trial, and a second expert has since been appointed to evaluate her, Geniella said.

    "Whether or not she is fit to stand trial is still hanging," Geniella said, who believed a trial date was set anyway "to get things moving," and have a plan in place.

    Geniella said in mid-November Doyle's defense was expected to be not-guilty by reason of insanity, which ended-up being her plea in December, and that Assistant District Attorney Paul Sequeira was seeking a life commitment for Doyle if she were to be committed to a state mental health facility.

    I am pleased the children have been removed from any further possibility of harm. It is obvious she is mentally unstable so she cannot really be held accountable, but at least she cannot harm her two children now.
