Murder/Suicide, and survivor guilt. (lots of updates included)

NY Mom Drowns Self, 3 Kids After Domestic Fight

Mother plunges minivan into Hudson, killing 3 kids, self

Teddy Bear left behind as a memorial to the babies that perished in the Hudson

** Please check at the bottom for updates.

Holy shit, I can’t believe that this “mother” did. If you don’t have your head up your ass and have read or seen the news in the last 2 days, you’ve seen that NY mother, LaShanda Armstrong,  drove herself and her 3 babies into the Hudson for them all to drown and die.

That alone is FUCKED up, but what makes this story so much worse is that moments before she drove into the river, she stopped and let her 10-year old son out of the car. The boy watched in horror as the car went off a boat ramp into the river, ultimately killing her and his 3 siblings. What a sick, selfish bitch. This poor boy.

This brave boy then ran to a nearby fire station and alerted firefighters.

A drenched and shaken Lashaun Armstrong stumbled into the Newburgh Fire Department at about 7:50 p.m. local time on  Tuesday, police said. “The boy reported that his mother had driven the car into the river,” said Newburgh Police Chief Michael Ferrara. It appeared the children were alive when the mother “intentionally drove the car into the river,” he said.

Police are saying that the woman may have gone through with this murder/suicide because of an earlier domestic dispute.  WTF? She drove her soccermom van into the river with her 2 sons, ages 5 and 2, and her little girl, aged 11 months – because her and her man got into a fight? The article doesn’t say that, but I don’t know what else a domestic dispute means besides that. Do you? The 10-year old is reported to have a different father than the 3 little ones. Did she let him out because she only wanted to kill the 3 that belonged to the assfuck she was fighting with, like to get back at him? This story just keeps getting more and more fucked up.

Apparently, one of the mother’s relatives had alerted police about a possible domestic dispute. “There was tussling in the background but also a history of domestic problems in the past,” Ferrara said. Authorities said the children’s father, Jean Pierre, did not live in the home. They are seeking him for questioning, police said.

It took them over an hour to find the car that had fallen 10-feet in the water. Police said finding them all buckled into the car was a horrible sight.

I can’t get past the survivor guilt that the 10-year old will now feel the rest of his life. I don’t wish that this selfish c*** would’ve taken him with them too, but why not let them all out and end your own fucked up life and leave these babies out of it?

People are coming forward claiming that this woman was a good, attentive mom who balanced care of her children with an outside job at a warehouse. They were all shocked by the news. Well, me too then. I would consider myself a great mom, and I would never plunge my kids into an icy river with me because I got into a fight with my baby daddy.

This is all too reminiscent of Susan Smith of course. But she was even more selfish and just plunged her boys alone into the lake and walked away. We all know that story, the new dick her in life didn’t like kids so she got rid of them and blamed it on a fake car-jacking. At least that bitch is serving life.

RIP little Landon – 5, Lance – 2, and Lainaina – 11 months.

LaShanda – hope the devil himself was waiting for you when you arrived.

Thanks to everyone who sent in tips on this one.

***** update: it seems that now there are further reports released with more accurate information, so let me give an update:

  • She didn’t let him out, he escaped as they were going under after opening a window
  • Mom grabbed his pant leg before he swam out and said, “I made a mistake” (no shit bitch!)
  • According to reports, mom found out dad was cheating so she did this to get back at him
  • According to the 10-year old – mom said to her kids before they plunged into the water, “”If I’m going to die, you’re going to die with me.”
  • A good Samaritan found the boy soaking wet and shivering and yelling for help and drove him to a nearby fire station
  • Shivering and barely able to speak, little Lashaun told firefighters how his mother had launched the van into the river with his siblings inside and how, just moments before, she dialed her dad for help, the kids screaming in the background.

***More updates according to this article:  N.Y. Mom Who Drove Herself, 3 Kids Into River Left Dying Declaration on Facebook Before Tragedy

Man, this makes me sick… the article listed above starts off by saying: 

“The overwhelmed New York mother who drowned herself and three kids in the Hudson River tried her best to provide her family with a happy home life — but was consistently let down by their deadbeat father, who failed to provide the love or money they desperately needed, her friends told the New York Post.”  While that might be true, its NO FUCKING excuse to kill your children!

Apparently 30 minutes before she plunged her kids and herself into the Hudson she updated her Facebook status to, “I’m sorry everyone forgive me please for what I’m gonna do . . . This is it!!!”

I don’t know what else to do besides copy this over and tell you that it makes me furious that people are saying, “poor her, she tried but her man was just so mean to her”. Still NO excuse to kill your kids! WTF!!!

Armstrong, 25, kept a steady job and took college classes but was abandoned by Jean Pierre — the fly-by-night father of the three dead children — and had nowhere to turn for help.

“He was terrible to her. He was very domineering and controlling over her. He was just so cruel. She just wanted a normal family,” said one friend, Christine Santos, 29, who lives nearby.

The dad — who was arrested in March because of $11,000 in unpaid support — also threatened to claim custody of the kids.

“That’s what pushed her over the edge,” said Santos. “He must have broken her spirit and taken away her will to live.”

I still hope LaShanda is in HELL! Taking away her will to live sucks, so off yourself and leave those kids out of it.

  1. I read this. I hate this. Why take your children. I hate her. I hope she is in hell burning like the rotten bitch she is.. depressed, pissed off. whatever. I don’t care her reasons. I have a 2 almost 3 yr old little boy. I love his chubby little fingers and toes. The way he talks, the way he runs and hugs me for no reason, the way he lines up his cars all over my floor so i trip and fall. I pray these little ones are together running among the angels and chasing butterflies.

  3. Evidently she didn’t let the 10 year old out…. he escaped through an open window and swam to shore.

    1. Sadly, yes, I heard this, too. He was able to open a window and swim out. He was then picked up by a passer-by while soaking wet. Apparently he later told authorities that by the time he got to shore and looked back, the car was completely gone.

      1. That is awful! He must have been so scared, poor little guy!

    2. Thank you. I was going to post that too. He was shivering so violently from the cold. It was a chilly night and he was wet.

  4. Poor kids, other news reports say the 10 year old climbed out the window.

  5. I’ve read articles that say she let him out, and I’ve read ones that say he escaped — not sure which is true.

  6. “People are coming forward claiming that this woman was a good, attentive mom…”

    Really? Because I was getting more of a “dirty murdering whore” vibe.

    It makes me wonder what these “people” would consider to be a BAD mom.

  7. Let me just say that I think an adult has a right to punch his or her own ticket if life gets too much to bear. But don’t take anyone with you, least of all three children.

  8. Today on the news it said that this woman found out her husband was cheating on her, so she decided to teach him a lesson, really??? to me teaching a cheating bastard a lesson is to; cut his dick off, beat his ass, leave him and take the kids, and divorce him, and drown him on child support, to me that’s how you teach a lesson. Not by killing yourself and your precious kids.

  9. I just seen on CNN that she reportedly told her son “I made a mistake” it didn’t specify when, I am guessing after they entered the water.

    To me a mistake is forgetting milk, when you go the grocery store, not deliberately driving your vehicle filled with you flesh and blood into a river, but hey what do I know.

    1. Read the link I posted.  It reported she told them “If I’m going to die, you are all going to die with me”.  Fuck, I hate her.

  10. The unhinged mother who drove her minivan off a Newburgh dock and into the Hudson River told her four children that she wasn’t leaving this world alone.

    “If I’m going to die, you’re going to die with me,” Lashanda Armstrong told the children before the vehicle sank to the bottom of the river just before 8 p.m. on Tuesday, the only surviving child told authorities.

    Armstrong’s 10-year-old son, Lashaun, escaped the doomed family minivan – opening a power window and swimming to safety in the two minutes it took for the vehicle to sink.

    But as he wriggled out of the window, his mother snatched his pants leg. “I made a mistake,” she said before finally releasing the boy, the child told authorities.

    After swimming to shore, the dripping-wet Lashaun made it to the road, where he was picked up by Meave Ryan, a good Samaritan who took the boy to a nearby firehouse.

    “He was waving his hands, screaming ‘Help me!'” said Ryan, 31. “He said, ‘My mommy just drove the car into the water.'”

    Shivering and barely able to speak, little Lashaun told firefighters how his mother had launched the van into the river with his siblings inside and how, just moments before, she dialed her dad for help, the kids screaming in the background.

    “I’m sorry, I’m going to do something crazy,” Armstrong said, according to the boy’s story.

    That prompted a 911 call that brought police to her Newburgh home, but it was too late.

    1. They also said the van was in reverse, as if she was trying to get out of the water….uh, hello, earth to miserable bitch….you didn’t figure out you were making a mistake when you were on the fucking boat ramp??
      What a scary, drawn out death for these children. Why didn’t she get the other babies out if she thought she was making a mistake!

      1. Is it okay that  Iove you – I mean…. Some people don’t really like me…. so is it okay?

  11. I don’t know about you but when I was 10 years old, I doubt I could have sussed out what to do-knowing to get out of the car before it sank. He is either very brave, very lucky or both. And she is evil beyond words. The incredible selfishness is beyond imagination-who cares if she ‘acted’ like a good mother! She wasn’t! good moms don’t try and off their kids, certainly by drowning them. wtf!!

  12. holy shit! what the motherfuck is WRONG with people???

  13. holy effing shit — I guess he did escape, I’ll update my post then. Poor kid! But so brave. And again with the guilt, “could I have saved my siblings?” — my heart is breaking big time over this one, like all the others…

  14. Another article about her — I just can’t get over the fucking justification of it by people that knew her! She killed her children b/c her man was a player? COME ON!

  15. I live in Newburgh, this story happened 3 miles from my front door. Lots of stories abound. Her sister says that the Mom was behaving erratically, being paranoid, swearing she was being followed, that the lights in her house were going off and on, that pages from her journal were missing, etc. Made me think of post-partum psychosis, which can happen up to 12 months after giving birth.
    I drive past that dock 3 times a week….taking my beautiful daughter to a “Mommy & Me” class in the next town. I couldn’t help but turn my car into there on Wednesday. Let me tell you, it is leveling seeing that spot. I had my baby shower just 2 buildings away…it is an area that is social and fun and as familiar to Newburgh as the river itself. It is forever changed now…the overhwhelming sense of loss is so thick, you could almost touch it. It almost took me out at the knees.
    I am angry at her….but still I have compassion for whatever it was she was going through. Suicide is selfish….but to take those babies? Thousands of people would have taken them in. My husband and I, desperate for more kids, and these babies died so slowly, while strapped into thier carseats…looking to thier mother for rescue. I have not slept all week.
    LeShaun (the child who escaped) goes to the same elementary school as my friends’ children…I just hope and pray that the people who are caring for him get him the help he will so desperately need. His Grandmother was quoted as saying “He fine…he being brave…” WTF? Brave? Don’t dare tell that child to be brave. He cried on that dock and said “I wish I taught my brothers how to swim when it was summer…” UNIMAGINABLE. I want to go find him and hug him.
    I hate that this piece of shit father (who BTW was arrested last year for child endnagerment after his toddler was found walking up a city street in a diaper, alone) has been just what he is…a piece of shit. I hate that this woman was 15 when she had LeShaun…15!! And that SHE KEPT HAVING CHILDREN with this worthless cheating piece of garbage who abused her and their kids!!!

    It all makes me want to just scream. And pull the covers over my head. But I can’t. I have a 4 year old to care for.

    Pray for LeShaun….donate to the fund his church has set up.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment.

  16. “The overwhelmed New York mother who drowned herself and three kids in
    the Hudson River tried her best to provide her family with a happy home
    life — but was consistently let down by their deadbeat father, who
    failed to provide the love or money they desperately needed, her friends told the New York Post.”

    Are you fucking kidding me?! They’re making it sound like this mother was completely unable to provide her kids at all!! There are hundreds of single mothers—and fathers, I’m sure—who have no one to rely on but themselves! I’m willing to bet she relied solely on child support! And he failed to provide love for the kids? Hmm…Wonder if the children felt that way.

  17. I can’t believe people are trying to defend her actions. The bitch killed her children. How someone can feel sympathy for a baby killer is beyond me. I think one of the things that makes me a slight bit happier about this [not that anything other than the 10 year old getting out is happy at all] is that the stupid bitch was scared for her own life right at the end. I hope she was terrified. RIP little ones.

  18. The “father” has now filed a lawsuit against the city claiming his girlfriend would have never been able to drive into the Hudson if there had been barriers to stop her. He wants $40 million per death. What a slimeball

    1. Are you fucking kidding me?  Fuck.  I bet they will even settle to avoid court and he’ll make out like a bandit.  Maybe someone will hit him with a bus before that happens.
