Mother Who Killed Self & 3 Daughters In Missouri Murder-Suicide Battled Depression

Christine Adewunmi Murder-Suicide

The 37-year-old mother who shot her three daughters before killing herself at a Missouri campground was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder and depression.

Police confirm that stay-at-home mom Christine Adewunmi killed herself and her three daughters — Lauren, 8, Samantha, 6, and Kate, 3 — in a tragic murder-suicide, according to The Daily Mail.

“Depression is difficult to understand and a serious illness that is hard to comprehend,” the family said in a statement. “No one knew the depths of her problem or could ever foresee this tragedy occurring. We cannot understand why this happened and are dealing with this tragic loss one minute at a time.”

Christine’s husband and the girl’s father, Leonard Adewunmi, knew something was terribly wrong when he returned home from work to find his family missing. He immediately reported their disappearance to police.

He told the officers he was afraid she might be suicide because of her bipolar disorder and depression. The day before she disappeared with the girls, she had been to a hospital for evaluation and decided to check herself in for treatment. But rather than follow through, she took the girls to a rural part of Missouri 80 miles outside of St. Louis and shot them.

The family’s computer revealed search results for how to kill yourself and information on depression, and Leonard told officers she had left before with the girls and lied about her whereabouts each time.

In the family’s statement, they called Leonard an “involved and caring dad” and said he will “miss cooking with Lauren, playing soccer with Sammi, and singing to Kate.”

It’s Crazy How People Can Judge w/o Being I’m Her Shoes .. Have You Lived Through Depression or Any Other Mental Illness ? I Feel Sorry For EVERYONE In This Situation.

But What Bothers Me Is Why She Was Alone w/The Children w/o Help If Her Husband & Family Knew Of Her Problems ? This Could Have Been Avoided.

though depression could be a horrible thing… people don’t realise that being a stay at home mom is can be so demanding and people tend to dismiss it as nothing..so those husbands /signifact others make to time for that person.. because after all stay home parents NEED me time as well.. i hope he had nothing to with it and if he did he shall pay for it..

Depression is such a monster. It takes over your whole being and clouds your judgement. I don’t condone what this mother did. I grieve for the father and the family members. But I know all too well the desperation and hopelessness someone can feel when they are suffering from depression. :(

I would be intrested to know what kind of meds she was on. Murder suicides, school shootings and the like all have that link. I wonder when the pharmacuetical industry is going to be held liable!

I totally agree with you. Especially when the pharmaceutical dealers TELL YOU that one of the side effects of their drugs is suicidal feelings.

They TELL us this in the commercials!!!

I FEEL REALLY SORRY FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY. THIS MOM SHOULD HAVE HAD SOME KIND OF HELP AT HOME AND MONIROTED WITH THE CHILDREN. THE MIND TELL ALL OF US CERTAIN THINGS BUT SHE COULD NOT COMPREHEND OUT OF HER MIND WHAT WAS BAD OR GOOD OR REALISTIC. IT’S JUST A ILLNESS THAT IS SO HORRIBLE TO HAVE. I CARE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE THIS. THIS ONE WAS A TERRIBLE ENDING. MY GOD BE WITH THE FATHER AND FAMILY.

this is so incredibly upsetting… my prayers are with the father and family that will miss these three girls whose lives were taken much too early for selfish reasons. :(
