A 29-year-old woman with no history of mental illness has allegedly murdered and dismembered three of her sons before trying to kill herself in phoenix.
Phoenix Police Sergeant Trent Crump said the woman, Octavia Rogers stabbed the boys before stuffing them in a closet and suitcase. She then stabbed herself in the neck and abdomen claiming she was pregnant. Although she lies critical in a hospital, she is expected to survive.
Even though there is no father in the picture, the children’s grandmother, Tanella McCoy said Octavia was a ‘good mother’ and did not seem to have any problems with her children.
The three children, Jaikare Rahaman, 8, Jeremiah Adams, 5, and 2-month-old Avery Robinson were found dead in a closet and suitcase in the house by the police after their mother lied the children were with someone else.
Roger’s brother immediately called 911 when he found his sister in a pool of blood after he got home from work at 2am. He said he tried to help his sister with her wounds but she tried to drown herself in their bathtub. Police are yet to verify his story.
The woman’s family say they are not aware Octavia was suffering from any mental illness
and have no idea what set this off.
Police Sergeant Crump stated that if Octavia Rogers survives, she will face at least 3 homicide charges.
