Mother commits suicide after drugging and murdering her two daughters
The bodies of the mother and toddlers Casey-Lea Taylor, 3, and Darcey Stevens, 18 months, were found in January 2019 in Bolton, England.
Darcey’s body was found in a car, while the other girl and the woman were found dead on the bed in one of the bedrooms.
Justice in that country, which is still investigating the case, indicated that the girls had been given “massive amounts” of methadone, a powerful substitute for heroin and opioids. The mother had exorbitant amounts of morphine in her system. And, according to the judicial investigation, the woman had injected herself with insulin and methadone. In addition to other drugs.
The woman had already injected insulin and methadone in the past and was a repeat offender. In addition, she did not have a prescription for the drugs she obtained.
The drugs rendered the girls unconscious before they died
Home Office pathologist Phillip Lumb told local media that the drugs Stevens and the girls had taken would have rendered them unconscious before they died. “I don’t think there was any pain or suffering” .
Before committing suicide, Tiffany left a note in which she confessed to the crime and assured that she had done it “for the sake of the girls”. The woman already suffered at age 19 from an overdose and was cited for mental treatment on at least eight separate occasions between 2011 and 2017, although she never showed up for those appointments.
In addition, Tiffany had a history of self-harm and had been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder traits.
