Woman kills family
Armstrong posted on her Facebook page a half hour before the murder-suicide: “I’m so sorry everyone forgive me please for what I’m gonna do… This is it!”
The suicidal mother who loaded her four children into a minivan and drove it into the Hudson River cryptically announced her intention, seeking forgiveness in a Facebook message just before the fatal plunge.
Police said she let a fourth child, a 10-year-old boy, out of the minivan before driving it off the dock. The child told firefighters his mother had killed herself and his brothers and sister.
Late Tuesday night firefighters in upstate New York said a mother drove a minivan into the Hudson River after a dispute at home, killing herself and her three young children, ages 5, 2 and 11 months.
