    snipped...A Canadian woman is under arrest after her two young children were found dead in their upscale London, England, home.

    Felicia Boots’ husband, investment banker Jeff Boots, also from Canada, discovered the bodies of their 10-week-old boy and 14-month-old daughter when he returned home from work on Wednesday night, the Daily Telegraph reported.

    Their mother, a 34-year-old Canadian jewellery designer, was detained by police at the family’s 1.2 million pound ($1.94-million) semi-detached home in Wandsworth, South London. The two babies were pronounced dead at the scene, a Scotland Yard spokesman told the newspaper.

    Ms. Boots was arrested on “suspicion of murder” and is in custody at a South London police station.

    :(

    14 month old daughter and a 10 week old son. She was back to back pregnant.

    So heartbreaking. I wonder if she was suffering from PP depression or psychosis.

    :( :(

    snipped......Because the event occurred so soon after the birth of a child, there was speculation that post-natal depression might be a factor in the case.

    'Why did no one spot it? It’s just so awful," the neighbour told the Daily Mail. "We all have children around here, and it’s hit us all. I can’t imagine what she must have been going through. Why didn’t she get help? My friend used to walk the dog with her and she’s in pieces. I can’t say any more, it’s too much."

    That was hard to read. That poor father. Lots of prayers for him. I can't imagine coming home and seeing that.

    I was thinking the SAME thing. It's just too unimaginable to not be mental state related.
