    I havent seen anything on WS yet (seldom do on cases from the EU anyways), there were reports yesterday of the murders, the details werent released until today.

    from link here

    I am absolutely fascinated and sick at her reasoning. they would certainly been taken away! she didnt seem to worried about their welfare as she knew he was a pedophile! I wonder what that little girl would have told!?


    rest in peace, little ones.

    Sweet heavens! "I was afraid they'd take them away, so I killed them." That makes perfect sense. Personally, I'd rather know my kids were somewhere alive and safe if I couldn't have them with me for some reason (heaven forbid), but maybe that's just me.

    I don't get it. Why didn't she think "This POS has raped my babies, I'll kill him!"

    Why did the female put her needs, to have a man in her life, before that of her children's safety, health, and well-being? I would wager that she knew he had done something to her children and she didn't want the kids telling the police.

    ITA!
    If she didn't have the opportunity or guts to kill him, why not think hey I can't stand the thought of "watching" someone else raise my kids and off herself?

    What gets me about these cases is this.... OK so a woman decides for whatever reason she needs a man more than her children. Ummm, how about a relative, foster care or adoption because once the children are dead, one or both adults are going to jail and certainly not together so really what does it accomplish???

    Maybe because of child support (they need/want the money), government assistance, because they know the man is more interested in the children than they are her, because they couldn't stand the thought of people thinking that they couldn't be a "mom". None of these are good reasons but unfortunately some women think that way.

    A mother suspected of killing her two young children in a Spanish hotel room allegedly left a suicide note saying 'I hope you can forgive me'.

    Gently holding her baby son, Lianne Smith is a picture of proud parenthood.

    Hours later, the boy and his sister were dead and their mother had tried to kill herself.

    The haunting photograph, apparently taken by Mrs Smith's five-year-old daughter Rebecca, was included in a package which was posted from Spain to England.

    It arrived only yesterday and is revealed exclusively in the Daily Mail. The fugitive mother compiled an album of their 'wonderful holiday' together on the Costa Brava, then sent it off with a farewell letter before allegedly smothering Rebecca and 11-month-old Daniel with a plastic bag almost two weeks ago.

    I just do not know what to say! Feelings range from heartbreak to anger! How dare this woman destroy the most precious gift this earth has to offer!

    These poor babies, may they rest in peace.

    It's always the same in these cases. After smothering, maiming, burning, drugging, or drowning their own innocent little children, the mothers invariably lament that they wanted to kill themselves but somehow just couldn't quite manage to do it. Well, I say we've been remiss in providing assistance to these women. Too seldom do we lend a hand and help them accomplish what they cannot do on their own. :furious:

    And why no family at the funeral? Horrible!
