Mother Killed Two Children And Herself During Custody Battle
It's believed a mother killed her two children, aged 8 and 10, and then took her own life because she was fighting a bitter custody battle with her ex husband.
Connie Henriksen Foster, 35, was discovered dead in her home in Alabama on Monday.
The bodies of her two children, Layla Leannette House, and her younger brother David Danger House were also discovered at the scene. There were no signs of stab wounds or gunshots.
Foster and her ex, David House, had been fighting over custody of their children since March 2015
An agreement was in place following their divorce five years before, however that had fallen apart.
Tragically Foster took to Facebook just before she and her kids were found dead to update her status saying simply, "My children, my heart."
People have been commenting beneath this status, voicing their shock and heartbreak.
The Huntsville school district say Layla was a vibrant, happy-go-lucky girl and that David was a sweet, caring boy with a gentle spirit.
