Mother kills her 5 children by Spursfan on 1 March 2007 11:13pm
Seen this guys? She must have needed help badly. What an awful story.

Mother kills her five children

A mother killed her five children before trying to commit suicide at her home near the Belgian capital Brussels, officials said.

Four girls and a boy, aged between four and 14, were stabbed with a knife during the afternoon break from school before the woman called emergency services.

She tried to kill herself and was in critical condition at a local hospital.

A note reading "Call the police, urgent" was taped to the front door of the middle-class house on the outskirts of Nivelles, 20 miles south of Brussels.

"She left a letter that lets it appear that she committed the facts," Bernard Goethals of the prosecutor's office told RTL network.

Children do not have to attend school on Wednesday afternoon and the killings took place two hours after their return home.

"We don't know whether the woman used other means than a knife and we don't know whether the children defended themselves," Goethals said.

Local media said she was a 51-year-old woman, married to a man eight years her junior.

He was not at home when the killings took place.

I live on the top floor of a Victorian Town (mansion) house. About 14 years ago, the flat below mw was occupied by a Nigerian woman with 2 children by a former marriage and another 3 by a later marriage. The 2nd husband left her while she was pregnant with his 3rd child. She was convinced that he would return if she had a boy but it was a girl. She became very depressed which was diagnosed as post natal depression but it didn't subside. About 6 months after this baby was born, she took the 2 older children (the 1st and 2nd of the later husband) to a local swimming pool. She hid at closing time and the following morning their bodies were discovered in the pool.
