In so many of the comments on this case guns have become the issue. Guns are NOT the common denominator in these cases of mothers killing their children, school shootings, mass murders, etc. I say that after tracking these cases, investigating them and working as an expert in the cases for almost three decades now, including many high profile cases. In 1999 I appeared on the Leeza Gibbons Show discussing the subject of mothers killing their children.
COMMON DENOMINATOR – ANTIDEPRESSANTS
The most common denominator in these mass attacks even carry warnings of both homicidal and suicidal compulsions associated with their use. That same most common denominator was found in the deaths of 84 this summer in France with the weapon being a truck, as well as the German Wings pilot who flew 150 people to their deaths with the weapon being a plane, and a bus driver in Switzerland who drove 28 to their deaths with the weapon being a bus. That common denominator is the use of antidepressant medications – the most similar drugs in action to the hallucinogens LSD or PCP. And had it been known that the shooter, the bus driver, the truck driver, or the pilot or this mother was taking LSD or PCP, no one would be calling for a ban on guns, or trucks, or buses, or planes, but for a ban on the drugs which triggered this violence. Neither homicide, nor suicide, is an acceptable “side effect” to what we are calling safe and effective “medications!”
HOW CAN A LOVING MOTHER DO THIS?
Here is another article with the husband confirming the mother’s deep depression. Keep in mind that since Columbine anyone mentioning the word “depression” has been fully medicated. These drugs were pushed like crazy after the Columbine High School shooting. As an example the funds that came in to United Way for the Columbine victims went to build a new counseling center and the victims could pick up their mail (c0ndolences coming in from around the country) only at that counseling center where they were of course being encouraged to take the same antidepressants that caused the shooting. http://www.denverpost.com/2016/12/03/father-during-vigil-recalls-depression-of-mother-and-times-of-happiness-with-family/
And how does a medication like this cause a loving mother to take the lives of her children? Read the list of side effects: delusions, hallucinations or psychosis, all types of sleep issues which indicate REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) in which a patient acts out their worst nightmare which for a loving mother would be losing her children this way. Research shows that 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD were taking antidepressants. But because RBD has long been known as a drug withdrawal state this can also happen in withdrawal from these drugs. The sleep issues were found to continue for almost two years after the abrupt withdrawal from these so called “medications.” This is why it is so important that doctors and patients learn that withdrawal must be gradual so as to avoid going into withdrawal which could possibly include this deadly sleep disorder long known to include both murder and suicide.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!
