    For whatever reason, seems a lot of this kind of cases are happening in Tx.

    Saiqa Akhter, 30, is being held in the Irving Jail on suspicion of capital murder in the death of 5-year-old Zain Akhter, who was killed Monday afternoon at the Wind Tree Apartments in the 3300 block of Esters Road.

    A second child, 2-year-old Faryaal Akhter, was critically injured in the attack. She is being treated at Children's Medical Center, where family members say she remains on life support.

    From above link. Just getting the pertinent data in the thread.

    I don't get it...Why is it that her family notices things are amiss with her and get her no help??? THis is the second time a woman from the middle east has killed her child and the family has known there was something wrong.

    I consistently ask about my nieces and talk to them to see how things are going. If anything seemed amiss, I would get the police involved.

    From your link:




    I'm fairly certain that Faryaal and Zain would have like to have a "normal" mom.

    Rest in Peace little ones.

    I read about these poor children last night. There will never be a justified reason this Mother did what she did.

    I did wonder though, how isolated was she? Did she have any support at all? Did she even know there was support available to her?

    These children didn't have to die. But I had wondered if there might have not been enough support for her within that community and/or assistance with having two Autistic children?

    This is a heartwrenching story, and I can't excuse her actions, but having heard many Mothers speak to the lack of support in caring for their autistic children if there could have been a way to avoid this tragedy?

    Bless these babies.

    It's a mess. I heard on HLN or somewhere that they had recently moved from a heavily immigrant apartment complex to a new home. Apparently, she had lots of friends where she was at before. She was also reported to be a doting mother. Finally, an uncle of the kids says the two year old did not have autism.
    People with special needs kids need support. But there are millions of such parents and obviously they do not off their kids. I think the lady has other issues like mental problems, isolation and perhaps cultural shame about her son. But, I don't know for sure.

    There were times I wanted to die while raising my autistic son. But I didn't wish the same for HIM! There is something seriously wrong with that woman! :furious:
