A mom allegedly shot dead her twin 7-year-old girls before killing herself on Saturday, 24 October…
This is according to a report by the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office. 55-year-old Michele Boudreau Deegan who lived in Sudden Valley, Washington in the US is believed to have killed the children while they were sleeping on Friday evening. Deegan was a psychotherapist specialising in “healthy coping behaviours and communication skills,” according to her website.
Deegan’s most recent posts on Facebook focus on narcissistic parenting and the abuse that is associated with it. Many of the articles mentioned suicide. Some of the article titles she shared included:
- “Narcissistic Parenting – A Set Up For Suicide (Case Study)”
- Depression and Suicidal Thoughts Caused by Narcissistic Relationships
- Narcissistic Abuse IS Domestic Violence
Bitter custody battle
“Preliminary findings indicate that the mother had been involved in a custody dispute over the children, which appears to be the primary motive behind the incident,” said the statement from the Sheriff’s Office.
The police were called to the family’s home after a housemate discovered the bodies. He told police that he had found his landlord and her two children deceased in an upstairs bedroom.
“At this time the Sheriff’s Office is not releasing any further information in regards to this incident pending final autopsy results and the completion of the investigation,” said the statement.
