Duxbury’s Lindsay Clancy indicted on charges that she murdered her three children



BROCKTON – A Duxbury woman has been indicted on charges that she murdered her three children, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz has announced.

Today, a Plymouth County grand jury handed down indictments charging Lindsay Clancy, 32, with three counts each of Murder and Strangulation. Clancy is currently held without bail and being treated in a medical facility.

At approximately 6:11 p.m. on January 24, 2023, Duxbury Police received a 911 call for a report of a suspected attempted suicide of a female resident who had jumped from a window at a home at 47 Summer Street.

A 5-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy were transported to Beth Israel Deaconness Hospital in Plymouth where they were pronounced deceased. They were identified as Cora Clancy and Dawson Clancy.

Eight-month Callan Clancy was medflighted to Boston Children’s hospital where he was treated for several days before he passed away.

Duxbury Police contacted the Massachusetts State Police Detective Unit in the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office and an investigation began.

As a result of information gathered during the ongoing investigation, detectives developed probable cause, obtained an arrest warrant for Lindsay Clancy and she was taken into custody.

The state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner took jurisdiction of the deaths and determined that the cause of death to Cora and Dawson Clancy was asphyxia, and the cause of death to Callan Clancy was complication of asphyxia.

Clancy’s lawyer, former Jasiel Correia attorney Kevin Reddington, argued earlier this year during a court appearance that she was involuntarily intoxicated due to being given one drug after another for an extended period of time leaving her not criminally responsible for the deaths of her children.

Reddington previously stated that doctors say Clancy is paralyzed and her condition is likely permanent.

According to the prosecution, Lindsay Clancy placed a takeout order that her husband Patrick picked up and she used maps to see how long the trip would take. When Patrick got home, he found blood in the home and went outside to find Lindsay on the ground with wounds on her wrist and other areas that were no longer bleeding. She then told her husband she tried to commit suicide and that the children were in the basement. While on the phone with 911, Patrick could be heard screaming once finding his children. Exercise bands were found at the children.

Clancy was committed to a hospital in January and the prosecution stated that Lindsay was on three medications at the time of the deaths.

While in her hospital bed, Clancy reportedly called her husband and told him that she heard a man’s voice to kill the kids in a moment of psychosis. The prosecution went on to say that Lindsay had to use several minutes of force by the exercise bands to cause the children to become unconscious.

Reddington stated how much Clancy wanted children and cared for them indicating that she wanted to have more children. He also told the court of the list of letters written in favor of Lindsay Clancy and her character and argued that the strangulation of the children was not planned and was due to her mental struggles.

Reddington, told the Boston Globe that she was overmedicated and was turning into a zombie after being prescribed 12 prescription drugs which led to homicidal and suicidal thoughts the evening she allegedly strangled her three children.

Among the medications prescribed to Clancy according to Reddington, were zolpidem (sold under the brand name Ambien); clonazepam (sold under the brand name Klonopin); diazepam (sold under the brand name Valium); fluoxetine (sold under the brand name Prozac); lamotrigine (sold under the brand name Lamictil); lorazepam (sold under the brand name Ativan); mirtazapine (sold under the brand name Remeron); quetiapine fumarate (sold under the brand name Seroquel); and trazodone.

On January 28th, Lindsay’s husband Patrick Clancy released a statement on a GoFundMe fundraiser page. Clancy asked the public to forgive his wife while also letting the public know details about his three children.

Clancy is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges in Plymouth Superior Court at a later date.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Jennifer Sprague and Amanda Fowle, and was investigated by Massachusetts State Police and Duxbury Police.

    Doesn’t the doctor/doctors prescribing all those powerful medications have any responsibility in all of this. Read the list of meds… a bit overdone, I think! Soooo many!
