According to the police report, the 56-year-old woman strangled and killed her 26-year-old son who has a severe mental disability, using a necktie. She then tried to kill herself by taking sleep pills but failed. The woman confessed her crime to her husband who was at work at the time, and he convinced her to turn herself in. 


At the police station, the mother stated, "My son had disabilities since his birth, and recently he started to have epilepsy seizures; I have to look after him all day long. I didn't sleep for the last two days, and it was difficult to take care of him who couldn't even move."

    I've worked with children with severe mental disabilities and I can honestly say that I understand why she did that. I'm not saying I would do it or that it's acceptable, but I can see what pushed her to do it. She's spent 26 years of her life caring for a child who doesn't speak, probably cannot control his emotions etc. When you have a child, you expect to provide for them for 18-24 years on average. You expect to change their diapers, feed them, and dress them until they're around 3-6 years old. What this woman got was 26 years of caring 24/7 for a baby in a grown man's body with a grown man's strength and no visible escape for the rest of her life. Having a child with a severe mental disability can be a blessing or it can be a curse and you can't really understand unless you've been through it.

    Yea probably, a baby wont have a soul until its 120 days in the womb so if a woman gets an abortion any day before that wouldn't be considered killing cuz its not even alive but if i were her and didnt know until birth i would definitely take care of it, she did a horrible thing
