Pregnant Woman Murdered Her 5 Sons Before Stabbing Herself In the Abdomen

Police believe a 39-year-old woman killed her 5 sons and stabbed herself today at their home in Paragould. Officers discovered the boys’ severed bodies in a closet with multiple stab wounds.

She locked him out of the house and stabbed herself several times in the abdomen, according to police.

He forced his way in and found her in their mother’s bathroom with multiple stab wounds and called police.

Police responded to the scene and were told the woman had children. They found the boys’ bodies, ages 11, 8, 5, 3 and 2 months, in a closet in the home.

“It appears at this point that the children were likely stabbed to death and that parts of their bodies were dismembered,” Police said.

The woman may have been pregnant with another child, and she stabbed herself in the abdomen.

“I never could have imagined that she could do something like this,” neighbor Henry Evans said.

Evans said he’s friendly with some of the family members in the house. He remembered the kids playing in his front lawn.
