DUXBURY, MASSACHUSETTS: The Massachusetts mother, who allegedly took the lives of her three children, has reportedly been shifted to a new hospital for better mental health care. Lindsay Clancy is accused of killing 5-year-old Cora, 3-year-old Dawson, and 8-month-old Callan on January 24 before she tried to claim her life too.

After the horror incident, it was speculated that the 32-year-old woman was suffering from deep depression, which forced her to take such an extreme step. Her lawyer Kevin Reddington claimed that she had post-partum depression. Even her husband Patrick Clancy defended her.

‘I tried to kill myself’

Now, WCVB Boston has reported that Lindsay has been admitted to Tewksbury State Hospital because her doctors felt that she required comprehensive care for her mental well-being. Also, the mother, who was pressed with eight counts related to her children’s deaths, including two counts of murder and three of strangulation, is now expected to appear in court for the next hearing after July 25.


This comes after Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Sprague in February alleged that Lindsay had planned to murder her children and it was not the result of any mental illness. During her arraignment, Sprague citing the audio recorded on the 911 call, reportedly said, “He called 911. During this time, he asked the defendant, 'What did you do?' She responded to him, 'I tried to kill myself and jumped out the window.' During the 911 call, Patrick can be heard asking the defendant, 'Where are the kids?'”

The assistant DA added, “He later told police that she replied in the basement. He can then be heard (on the 911 call) screaming in agony, in shock as he found his children. His screams seemed to get louder and more agonized as the time passes.”


‘She's extremely emotional’

On the other hand, Reddington has insisted on Lindsay’s innocence and stated, “I question whether she would ever make it to a trial. She's suicidal. She's extremely emotional. However, she's unable and has been unable to express any happiness or sadness or cry.”

“Her emotional state is so bad that there's a significant fear of suicide. She has to have someone sit in the room 24/7 to watch her; they don't talk to her. They're not, you know, chatting it up. They just sit there and watch out of that concern that she would commit suicide,” the attorney added.


‘The very fibers of her soul are loving’

Earlier a statement by Patrick read, “I want to ask all of you that you find it deep within yourselves to forgive Lindsay, as I have. The real Lindsay was generously loving and caring towards everyone - me, our kids, family, friends, and her patients. The very fibers of her soul are loving. All I wish for her now is that she can somehow find peace.”

The devastated father added, “Cora, Dawson, and Callan, you gave me so much in your short time here. I don’t know if the pain will ever go away, but I’ll do my best to carry on in your honor. Dada loves you so much and will always remember you. With love and endless gratitude.”
