“My baby died five weeks ago in the hospital. I brought the devil home; mine died in the hospital after they did CPR on him. The baby started talking to me and I knew he was the devil. He was the devil, so I killed him. I drowned the devil that was in my baby,” Thomas said, according to an affidavit obtained by the AP.

Thomas’ family said that she suffered a breakdown four years ago and has hallucinations.

In the St. Louis area, three mothers killed their children and themselves within a six-month period this year. A psychologist interviewed by the St. Louis-Dispatch in connection to the deaths says that such cases rare. “Mothers don’t kill their children unless they are very ill,” said Diane Sanford, a psychologist who has written two books on postpartum depression.”They believe they are protecting their children from having a life of misery and suffering,” Sanford said.

According to New York Public Radio, it is impossible to determine how many parents kill their children each year because they are often classified as homicides. Cheryl Meyer, professor of psychology at Wright State University in Ohio, who co-wrote two books on maternal filicide, told the radio station that more than 100 cases of maternal filicides occurred annually during the 1990s.
