A SUV carrying seven Hart would drive 100 meters off the coast of the Pacific coast the same day last March – the police said the tragedy took all eight lives and raised the issue of abuse and murder .
"How long does it take to die from overcooling during a drowning in a car?"
One of her latest searches was for the shelter for non-kill dogs.
They intended to kill their 6 children, the jury thinks
Terrible details came on Thursday after the jury of the judge unanimously ruled that Jennifer and Sarah Hart intend to die along with their six adopted children: Marquis, 19, Jeremias and Abigail, 14, Devonte, 15, Hannah, 16, and Sierra 1
At first it seemed that parents were driving their children out of their homes in Woodland , Wash., to death in Mendoza County, California. Their social media pages included photos of shining children holding the signs of "love is always beautiful".
In some photographs they had suitable t-shirts and wide smiles.
With increasing national attention to history, it became clear that children were desperately looking for help from neighbors. Explained the allegation that their parents abused and starved six adopted black children.
The driver got a spin to build his courage
The coroner's study gave more idea of what made Jennifer and Sarah stop the life of all eight charts.
When the authorities entered the house of Hart, It seemed that it was neat, orderly and recently remodeled, said investigator Jake Shale from California Highway Patrol. But while Jennifer and Sarah were decorated, Shates said the children's rooms were naked
The investigators noted that their luggage was left and seven did not take their toothbrushes in front of a two-day ride .
"In my opinion, Sarah and Jennifer were subjected to great pressure," said Lt. Col. Shannon Barney from the office of the Sheriff of Mendocino. "They came to the point when they made a conscious decision to end their lives and bring their children with them."
When Jennifer traveled on the US 101 highway, she had some beers. to operate it, says Slates. Witnesses told the police that Jennifer was drinking rarely.
The theory is that she drank to increase her courage, said Slates.
"My feeling is based on talking with witnesses that they felt that if they did not have these children, nobody is going to have these children," Slan said.
Children were looking for help in the middle of the night
A few days before seven died in an accident, the Child Protection Service in Washington asked for a welfare check for seven days. But on March 26, no one responded to the door; went
Calls to the police began only two years after the charter became parents while they were living in Minnesota.These were first called in 2008, when one child told the adult that Jennifer had hit the child in his hand, but the state closed the case, claiming that the child fell.
After another call in 2011, Sarah Hart found herself guilty of a domestic assault after she came to the police, she crushed the baby by scratching her on the edge of the bath.
After the family moved to Woodland, Washington, the children began to go to their neighbor Bruce DeKalb for help and food in the middle of the night.
Witnesses reported that the children were "extremely disciplined, almost to the point that they were robotic," went one file to the bedroom, and they were told when going to the bathroom, said Slyts.
March 23, DeKalb called the CPS to check the seven. The next day they packed off their SUV and started riding from Washington to California.
Questions remain on the control of abuse
Only Jennifer, Sarah and three children were initially identified.
Jennifer was in an alcoholic state, and Sarah and two of the children received a positive result on difenhydramine, an active ingredient in Benadrilly. Parts of the foot in the footwear were found on the beach that May, but the investigators could not identify the remains as a baby Hart by January of this year, when a DNA sample proved that it was Hannah. they believe that he died along with his brothers and sisters, the authorities hope that the public will be able to provide information to prove their mistake. The investigation is closed, and their death certificates now contain suicide, while the children's lists kill crimes. P & # 39; s states were involved in adoption and abusive children.
"Where are the systematic failures that could have prevented this?" Allman said. "We do not have a national database on allegations of child abuse."
This, as Allman said, should be an "educational moment" for lawmakers.
