In Connecticut a mother killed her two children: her daughter, Aleisha Moore who was 6 years old and her son, Daaron Moore who was 8 years old. The bodies of the two children were found inside an East Haven house which was filled with gas. The mother had a history of child abuse.
The woman who committed the murders, LeRoya Moore (36) was arrested and charged not only with two counts of murder, but also with three counts of reckless endangerment.
The mother killed her two children in their own home in East Haven, at 541 Strong Street. After a medical call the police found the two children dead inside the house and according to the Police Chief of East Haven the gas seemed to have been turned on intentionally.
It seems that one of Moore’s friends made a 911 call last week and said that the woman had threatened to hurt herself. Her friend also received a letter which was read by the police. This made them go to the house and check on the woman. The police used Moore’s friend’s phone and convinced her to get out of the house. The cut marks on her wrists were indeed visible.
Afterwards the police entered the house in order to check on the children. They noticed immediately the strong smell of natural gas. The children were found fully clothed on a blanked that was placed on the floor. They had already been dead for some time. It seems that their bodies were so bloated that the skin seemed to be split and the house was filled with a strong odor of human decomposition. 46 boxes and bottles of medication were also discovered inside the house, some of which were near the children. It is believed that the cause of the children’s death was poisoning, but the exact cause of death was not yet determined. The results of toxicology tests were not released yet.
It seems that the mother who killed her two children was depressed and decided to murder them as a way to protect their souls and save them. She wrote a letter in which she explained her actions. When she was asked whether she had hurt the children she simply replied: “I stabbed them, I released them.”
