A mother and wife amidst an escalating mental breakdown, bludgeoned her two sons in their home using a barbell. Her husband was at work at the time. She was exhibiting signs of illness for some time,treatment recommendations not believed to be adhered to,nor was follow up therapy. Some speculate that a cultural stigma on mental illness, lack of emotional support,a crumbling marriage,and post miscarriage trauma may have aggravated to a chemical imbalance. It was a preventable tragedy.
