PRESTON, Conn. (AP) — A woman who picked up her two young grandsons from daycare and was supposed to bring them home so the 2-year-old could open his birthday presents instead drove them to a neighboring town and shot and killed the children and herself, state police and family members said.
The bodies of 47-year-old Debra Denison and her grandsons, 2-year-old Alton Perry and 6-month-old Ashton Perry, were found Tuesday night in a car parked near Lake of Isles in Preston, in the southeastern part of the state....Family members said Denison, the boys' maternal grandmother, had a history of mental health problems.
...Denison also had a 13-year-year-old son and, in her suicide note, she said in part that God was watching over him on Tuesday, White [the other grandparent] said.In Facebook postings late Tuesday and Wednesday morning, Brenda Perry [the mom] thanked people for their prayers and said she loved her sons.
"God (has) two beautiful angels helping him now," the postings said. "My boys are in an amazing place we got a few great angels watching over us. love you Ashton and alton."
Well naturally you're going to go right into the God-talk when you yourself allowed your mentally ill mother to be on the approved list of people to pick up your kids even though the kids overwhelmed her. And did mom know that grandma had access to a gun? How did that happen?
Guilt and grief are terrible things, but how does imagining that God has enslaved a toddler and infant make things better?
Grandma left a suicide note, acknowledging that she is leaving her youngest child motherless. God is watching over him? God couldn't prevent her from offing the toddler and the baby, what good will God do for the teenager?
I seriously hope for the teen's sake that he gets placed in a foster home far, far away from his nutty Christian family. As crazy as they are, he'd be better off being sent to a Catholic boarding school and being fucked up the ass by a pedophile priest. At least those priests aren't murderers.
