A law enforcement official has shared more information about the shocking deaths of a woman and two young children in Boston on Christmas Day.
District Attorney Rachael Rollins confirmed on WBUR’s Morning Edition that the unidentified woman was the mother of the two children, ages 4 and 15 months old.
“All things are indicating [death by suicide],” Rollins reportedly.
“Our investigation is showing that the two children fell first, and then the parent fell after.”
The District Attorney’s statements appear to corroborate some statements made on social media by people who claimed to have witnessed or heard details about the incident.
Sources told WCVB that the woman’s husband called police after his wife left their Boston area home with the two children following an argument on Wednesday. He reportedly said she may be suicidal.
The mother and her children were reportedly found on a sidewalk next to the Renaissance Parking Garage, which is close to the Northeastern University campus.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, investigators were seen Wednesday on the top floor of the parking garage, appearing to focus on an SUV with its doors open. Police reportedly found two child car seats in the vehicle.
“The first responders that saw this, the husband that had to be told that this was what occurred, and the families that are impacted as a result of this, it’s really just a devastating loss for all of us,” Rollins said on the news program.
As WBUR reports, Boston Police Commissioner William Gross has asked anyone with information about the incident to contact the police as they continue to investigate.
