    I don’t know. It makes my head hurt to think about it. I used to live in the area (15 miles).

    Standouts imo & thank you for your link:
    According to the Broadcastify file of the radio traffic, the dispatcher responded: "She mentioned the 8-year-old has been bullied and has made threats of doing this but didn't want to go alone. … At this time it should just be the mother and the two children on scene."
    ...
    The children were found hanging from opposite ends...
    ...
    Troopers also seized copies of the medical records and toxicology testing done on the children at the hospital prior to and after their deaths.

    Excuse me as I go for tissues & blow.
    Should I stay? ~ Should I go?
    Oh, I don’t know.
    So many in a row.
    I’ll lay low.
    Until I know.
     
  8. Wonder what mom was doing between finding the kids at 4:15 and paramedics arriving at 4:30. She did not try to cut them down. That's huge IMO.

    The original article said she was in a catatonic state. Is this what is still being reported?
     
  10. I never read that.

    I know I read it in the first article I read and posted but it looks like that article has now gone poof. I'm still looking.

    I just hope to God that Conner's friends and classmates didn't have to be interviewed by LE because of the bullying claims. If "we're" making these claims, then I think it's fair to mention that some people are making claims that those of the mother aren't true and that Conner was actually pretty popular at school. And about the toys... Jesus Christ, I could never.

    IMO mom talking about bullying, etc. on the 911 call instead of dealing with the situation at hand, like I don’t know, trying to CUT HER CHILDREN DOWN raises giant red flags. How many times have we seen where the caller gave a bunch of extraneous information (reasons, excuses, background) to 911 those cases all ended up taking a same specific turn?

  15. So true! The talk about bullying would be something you'd tell LE after the fact, not the 911 operator.

    sitting on my hands like many of you I bet but also... the method, thinking of how this happened... the chairs, the beams, the dog lead... but the chairs get me most. Who tipped those chairs over? Only happened simultaneously if, well, can't opine yet on how that might gave happened...

    message or mental illness? what 8 year old thinks this up? oh wait...

    ETA: some junk for clarity

  18. I hear ya. I cannot imagine an 8 year old saying, "You know, Mom, I'd like to kill myself but I want to take someone along with me when I go." AND, if a child would say something like that, wouldn't you get that child help?
     
  19. We know paramedics cut the kids down when they got there. We also know the chairs were laying on the floor. That means she not only didn't try to cut them down but she also did not even put the chairs back under their feet. They were three feet apart from each other. She could maybe have kind of stood them back up and wrapped her arms around them to take the weights off their necks. The more I read and think, the more angry I become.
