Texas children found dead, 1 survives hanging

Hudson Oaks, Texas - A relative found the bodies of a 23-year-old woman and her four small daughters hanging in a closet in their mobile home this morning, all of them dead but an 8-month-old, who was taken to a hospital, the sheriff said.

Authorities didn't immediately release the identities of the victims in the Oak Hills mobile home park, about 25 miles west of Fort Worth.

The woman's sister, who lived nearby, had stopped at the home after the woman failed to show up for work, Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said. He said the sister rescued the infant when she realized the baby girl was still alive.

The other children, ages 5, 3 and 2, had all had been hanged with strips of clothing and sashes, Fowler said.

"It's terrible, terrible," he said.

The infant was taken to Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth and was in good condition, Fowler said.

Neighbors in the rural community of 1,600 were stunned. Less than five years earlier, another Hudson Oaks family was torn apart when Dee Etta Perez, 39, shot her three children, ages 4, 9 and 10, before killing herself.

Fowler said the hangings today also appeared to be murder-suicide, but the investigation was still under way.

The young mother and her girls were last seen alive Monday evening, he said. She was believed to be separated from her husband, who Fowler said has been notified of the deaths.

"I just got a big kick out of watching the kids play over there on her porch, and today it's sad, very sad," said neighbor Joyce Harris.

Texas has seen a disturbing number of child killings by mothers in recent years.

Andrea Yates drowned her five children in the family's Houston bathtub in 2001. In 2003, Deanna Laney beat her two young sons to death with stones in East Texas, and Lisa Ann Diaz drowned her daughters in a Plano bathtub. Dena Schlosser fatally severed her 10-month-old daughter's arms with a kitchen knife in 2004.

All four of those women were found innocent by reason of insanity. Yates initially was convicted of capital murder, but it was overturned on appeal.

It's hard to imagine how some people get to the psychological state where they could do something like this.

It's not a real day unless someone posts an absurdly depressing story on Chiefs Planet.

Yay.

I hate sick people. If this wasn't a murder/suicide I would be calling for the offenders head.

Dense will be along shortly to defend the mother. Clearly this is the fault of George Bush.

Maybe if the news stories didn't cry out about this poor, poor distraught mother and instead called her out for the chicken s**t piece of trash killer that she is, the next dumb bitch looking for people to feel sorry for her might not go this route.

And a bit surprising too, considering that Texas doesn't mind administering the death penalty.

I'm pretty sure the death penalty isn't much of a deterrent for suicide murderers.

It's hot there. People become distraught when there is no air conditioning.

That was in response to the four women who were found innocent by reason of insanity.

I realize we all want to bitch about the media and the government and everything else, but come on, that's a hell of a ****ing reach you're making.

That picture reminds me of my ride home from work today. Some nimrod called in to the sports talk show to defend dog fighting.

When asked for his reasoning he said something about survival of the fittest, saying it was Newton's Law of Nature. It was funny as hell. The hosts ate the guy up.

Good stuff.

****. I'm sick to my stomach right now.

If there's anything I can't handle, it's people who hurt or kill kids.
This stuff is the WORST. FOCK!!!!If any of you know of a woman (or parent) who might be on the edge, go visit her or give her a break or just listen to the gripes.

Man, like suicide. This has to be avoidable.

Damn **** shit.

Only a single mom who has suffered post-partum depression while living in a trailer park in the humid south could possibly understand.
