In Boston, on Christmas Day three bodies were found on the sidewalk outside of a parking garage. Authorities identified a mother and her two children who died in a suspected murder-suicide.
Suffolk County District Attorney Rachel Rollins released a statement Thursday identifying the victims. Erin Pascal, 40 and her two children Allison 4, and Andrew 16 months.
Could you just imagine the fear Allison felt as she was tumbling towards the side walk or imagine what was running through Erin’s head as she flung her children from the parking garage.
The deaths happened between 1:25 p.m and 1:35 p.m. Rachel Rollins had this to say to reporters about the incident that occurred on Christmas Day.
“Our investigation is showing the two children fell first, and then the parent after. This Christmas Day tragedy demonstrates the urgency of addressing mental health, suicide and homicide. We have to do more to address these significant public health issues that impact all of us in Suffolk County.”
