Reports have surfaced concerning what took place before two young children died and a mother jumped from a window in Massachusetts



Multiple reports have surfaced concerning the moments that led up to the tragic death of two young children in Massachusetts.

According to multiple media outlets, those who know Lindsay Clancy of Duxbury have stated that she had taken a leave from her job as a nurse and was undergoing an extensive five day a week program for postpartum depression before jumping from a window in what 911 calls described as a suicide attempt.

Clancy’s husband has been reportedly working from home to support her and left for 25 minutes to get take-out and returned home to find the unthinkable.

According to Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz, police responded to a home at 47 Summer Street on Tuesday after a 911 call at 6:11 p.m. for a report of a male resident coming home and finding Clancy was attempting to commit suicide. Clancy jumped out of a window and was later sent to a local hospital for treatment.

Responders located three children unconscious, a 5-year-old girl, a 3-year-old boy, and an approximately 7-month-old infant, which were found with serious trauma. The three-year-old and five-year-old were taken to a hospital where they were pronounced deceased.

The 7-month-old was medflighted to a Boston Hospital and is still being treated.

Cruz stated Wednesday that it appears the children were strangled, and charges are being sought for Clancy in their deaths.

Massachusetts General Hospital has confirmed that Clancy is a nurse at their hospital.

According to the Mayo Clinic, postpartum depression symptoms may include depressed mood or severe mood swings, intense irritability and anger, hopelessness, severe anxiety, thoughts of harming yourself or your baby, and recurring thoughts of death or suicide.

Postpartum psychosis symptoms can include feeling confused and lost, having obsessive thoughts about your baby, hallucinating/delusions, feeling paranoid, and making attempts to harm yourself or your baby.

Clancy is still being treated and it is unclear when she will face the murder charges.

    This has to be one of the saddest in Ma. We live in a society that doesn’t understand the hell some people are going through. I am sure in her heart she did not want this to happen. So much going on in the world and people need to pay attention to how and what their families are saying or doing. It’s our job to get them the help. The husband tried and all the could have, should haves etc. are over. May we all stand together with her and her husband and not bully or degrade either one of them. Praying for the little one that he will be okay. My heart truly goes out to all of them.
