    According to Nancy Grace, Tracey may have stayed with the body of her son for 5 days. She hid the knives which shows some thought and planning.
    So sad.....

    Sorry, can't get the link to work....

    My son is 24. I cannot imagine killing him with a hammer or a knife, obviously. But more to the point, HOW could she have managed it? I mean, imo, my son would be able to defend himself if we struggled in hand to hand combat. Was he possibly sleeping when she stabbed him?

    I did find the video at the TimesUnion link, the list of videos on the R, Westboro murder...

    It was said the mother and son recently moved from Long Island to be near relatives, the son said to have cerebal palsy and light seizures but not confirmed, he and mother known to be close and the mother has not been forthcoming but they have a lot of evidence on her.

    EXIA15145 : thanks for the links... my 'copy and paste' buttons don't want to work for pasting addresses. Bleh.
    Bugs the crap out of me when the main suspect 'can't remember' .

    I saw this NG episode. The mother looks shell-shocked. I can't imagine why she would do this... plus wasn't she in the house with his body for a few days?

    Awful, so awful :(

    But that's what I don't get--the violence that she used.

    I can almost understand the desperation of a single mother with a disabled son, having no $ and facing eviction, no where to turn,so she is depressed and stressed and she sees no way out. That much I can comprehend.

    But to use a hammer and a knife? I don't get that at all. :rose:

    May I suggest we aren't supposed 'to get it'? It's beyond our realm of understanding. For someone to do that to another person is just terrible, but for a mother to do it to her child is incomprehensible.
    Go give your child(ren) a hug and tell 'em you love 'em.

    well i guess the best option would of been a gun, but if you can't afford it. she probably started with a knife, but if you don't know how to kill, like major blood vessiles and such, would bring the hammer into play, panic. there are many stories of simular situations, it's very sad that there is so little social/gov support in these cases.
