    I cannot find where it says they were in the trunk. What have I missed?

    eta: I did find another article that does say they were in the trunk - here http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/two-missing-children-found-dead-in-mayo-in-boot-of-car-29456572.html

    However, the parents were reportedly not separated/divorced... from same article...

    You can so see this coming...

    Father and mother divorced, some sort of custody issue going on. Dad kills the boys, puts them in the trunk, and intends to kill himself in the crash. He failed at suicide.

    Why I think this - the alert is issued a lot like in our Amber Alert - when the child/ren are in danger. That and the fact they were reported missing at 1:30 am (iirc) tells me that there's some sort of custody issue, AND that there had been some significant concern beforehand that something would happen to the boys.

    God rest you both, little irish men...God rest you both.

    Now you mention it I can't find that in the news article either. I just assumed it to be the case because its in the thread title.

    Thank you, nursebeeme.

    I am reposting this link, though I did edit my post above to add it - it does say they were found in the 'boot' of the car.

    http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/two-missing-children-found-dead-in-mayo-in-boot-of-car-29456572.html

    Seems clear that the father killed the boys, but according to this article, the parents are not estranged... so it does not seem to be a custody issue... unless parents were just in the discussion stages of separating & could not agree on future custody of the boys, perhaps.

    BBM

    Info released so far does not suggest the father was distressed when he left home with the children... because would the mother have allowed him to take the boys if she knew he was that distressed? Did he have some kind of psychotic break?

    I think you guys call it a car trunk instead of a boot.

    Sometimes, I like being wrong.

    Still, I'm confused now. I wonder what happened in the father's mind to do something as horrific as this?

    We knew there must be more... now it's starting to come out a bit... why on earth would he feel the need to kill his own sons over something like this? And what a terrifying way to die, quite literally at the hands the man you've looked to for protection from all harm... poor wee boys.
