A mother in South Carolina is facing charges after confessing to police that she killed her two children and drove her car into a river.
According to initial reports, Shaquan Duley flagged down police a half a mile from the Edisto River claiming that she had been in an accident.
When police arrived on the scene, they found 2-yaer-old Devean Duley and 18-month-old Ja’Van Duley dead in the backseat, still strapped into their car seats.
According to police reports, the entire incident “wreaked of foul play”. Officers state that not only was Ms. Duley not wet, but there were no signs of any type of accident on the road way.
In addition to the clear evidence against her story, police also state that they found the car in neutral on the scene.
Although Duley originally told authorities that the children drowned when their car bowled into the river, Sheriff Larry Williams states that the mother later told police what really happened.
According to police, Duley said that she was “distraught” after a dispute she allegedly had with her own mother and decided to kill 18-month-old Ja’Van Duley and 2-year-old Devean Duley by putting her hand over their mouths.
Williams says that at that point, Duley then strapped the children into her car and drove the vehicle into the river.
Duley has been charged with two counts of murder and leaving the scene of an accident, she is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday (August 18).
SMH…she is one sick woman.
