    "Officers responded to the 19000 block of Cherry Bend Drive around 9:30 a.m. Friday after a neighbor reported a vehicle with the door open and a knife laying outside.
    Two children, ages one and two, were found dead inside the home. Two other children, ages five and eight, along with a woman, were transported to local hospitals."

    "Officers were dispatched to the home Thursday evening after a neighbor noticed an unattended child in a car. Before officers arrived, two women exited the townhouse, retrieved the child, and re-entered the home.
    Officers tried to speak with the residents but received no response at the door. Montgomery County Child Protective Services was notified and asked to follow up."

    I couldn't believe the follow up, this is a local story and it was said the 2nd female had self inflicted injuries, was in hospital then charged as well. How horrific that anyone would think something like exorsism is real.....sigh. I hope the other two children live.

    Is this being disc on another thread? This is local for me. Very interesting case. Two women, religious beliefs, possible mental illness but the dynamic of 2 killers? Poor babies. Waiting to hear more info, been reading the comments sections on all local articles, seems poverty was a real issue in this family and they had moved around quite a lot recently- a lot of commenters say she was a good mother and humble, but pastor says def mental illness.

    from http://www.washingtonpost.com/local...fe3bc4-804a-11e3-95c6-0a7aa80874bc_story.html

    Avery’s Facebook page has smiling photographs of her children and several, serious postings about faith, God and the Devil.
    On Nov. 21, 2011, Avery wrote that the world was unsafe.
    “People are being deceived left and right every day and don’t care to realize it,” she wrote. “They think it’s safe and everything’s a game when this world is owned by satan himself who wants to dumb us down to think there’s no consequences for what we do.”

    No consequences for what we do, she said???

    Mother's appearance in court tomorrow.
    No death penalty in Md.
    wondering what the 21 yo woman's part in this is, they arrested her on same charges, but said she was injured.
    Mother ran from the house, so she knew what she did was wrong. Really interested in finding out more about her religion and what beliefs she carried regarding exorcism. Terribly sad.

    "... Avery said she is the leader of the Demon Assassins, which has four members. She said on Thursday night she and Sanford were set to perform an exorcism on a man named Troy, which is why the children were kept outside in a car, prompting a 911 call from a neighbor..."

    snipped from http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/l...-241314991.html?_osource=SocialFlowFB_DCBrand

    I can't even swallow what I read in above link. I am astounded, I knew this was bad, but the story is sickening beyond belief. The insanity. Where is this man Troy?
