CT native indicted on murder charges of three children
DUXBURY, MA (WFSB) - A woman with ties to Connecticut was indicted for the murder of her three children.
Lindsay Clancy, 32, was indicted on three counts of murder and strangulation, according to Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz.
Clancy graduated from Quinnipiac University with a bachelor’s degree in biology, records showed.
She was held without bail.
Authorities said Clancy was accused of strangling her three children, 5-year-old daughter Cora, 3-year-old son Dawson and 8-month-old son Callan, on Jan. 24.
Cora and Dawson died that night, while 8-month-old Callan died two days later.
Clancy attempted to commit suicide after the assaults by jumping out of a window, Cruz said.
It was reported she was allegedly struggling with postpartum psychosis, a serious condition that can cause delusions and hallucinations.
Her husband, Patrick Clancy, showed support for her in a gofundme post that said “our marriage was wonderful and diametrically grew stronger as her condition rapidly worsened. I took as much pride in being her husband as I did in being a father and felt persistently lucky to have her in my life.”
