Today's American Horror Story
From upstate New York: Woman gets out of mental hospital, re-united with two young daughters. Now all three dead in murder-suicide. She had reportedly lost it after her son, 23, had committed suicide (see obit) in April in the same house, after serving in the Air Force for three years. Now she killed herself and daughters, 11 and 6, in same room where he died, using plastic bags and gas. With her brother in the house. Details to come. Update: Woman had threatened to harm the two earlier this month, Amber Alert issued, but she was allowed back with them after 20 days of mental health treatment. Then her brother let her sleep in same room as the kids and first night--they all died.
