The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office said that the 8-month-old boy who was badly hurt in his Duxbury home Tuesday night died of his injuries at a Boston hospital. Cora, who was 5 years old and Dawson, who was 3 years old, were also his siblings.
“(Friday), at approximately 12:30 p.m., the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner contacted Massachusetts State Police assigned to our office to report that at 11:18 a.m., the third Clancy child was pronounced deceased at Children’s Hospital in Boston,” district attorney spokeswoman Beth Stone said in a statement.
As per the Report, A woman tried to kill herself in Duxbury on Tuesday night, according to a 911 call. When the police arrived, they found a woman who had jumped from her second-story window badly hurt and two of her children who had been killed by being strangled.
The 8-month-old boy, Calen Clancy, was taken to the hospital because he was hurt very badly.
Lindsay Clancy, who is 32 years old, is already charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of Cora and Dawson Clancy, who were both 3. She is also charged with three counts of strangulation and three counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
Her wounds are being taken care of at the scene. Tim Cruz, the district attorney for Plymouth County, said that her health “is a moving target.”
At Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth on Tuesday, both Cora and Dawson were said to be dead. Cruz said that it would be up to the medical examiner’s office to figure out how and why they died, but it looks like they were strangled.
Cruz said, “nobody is here to speculate” about what happened or why Clancy might have killed her own children. Michael Carbone, the chief of police in Duxbury, wouldn’t say if police knew the Clancy family or if 911 calls had been made to the home before.
“Our hearts and condolences go out to the Clancy family,” Cruz said. “I cannot begin to fathom the depths of pain that might be going on.”
People in the area are talking about postpartum depression and psychosis because of the “unthinkable tragedy.” They want to know what happened.
In the past, women who killed their children often did so because they had postpartum depression or psychosis, which can severely change a person’s mind after giving birth. If it isn’t treated, it can put both the mother and her child in danger.
Expert on maternal depression and perinatal psychiatrist at the University of Massachusetts Medical School Nancy Byatt said that postpartum psychosis could “take over” the brain.
