Two weeks after 4 children were removed from Erika Murray’s squalid home, the bodies of 3 infant babies were discovered inside the same home next to a pile of soiled diapers. Horrifying.
Erika Murray, 31, is being held without bail after being arrested because the bodies of three dead babies were found inside of her filthy home. She is believed to be the mother of the three infants, as well as the four other children who were removed from her home by social services — including a 3-year-old and a 6-month-old that did not have birth certificates. However, Erika has not yet been charged in the deaths of the three deceased babies. So sad.
Woman Arrested: 3 Babies Bodies Found Inside Dirty Home
This is absolutely horrific.
Three tiny bodies were discovered hidden inside the Blackstone, Mass. home of Erika Murray on Thursday, Sept. 11. Each body was reportedly covered in “vermin” and hidden near piles of soiled diapers.
“The house is filled with vermin,” a prosecutor explained, reports the Daily Mail. “We have flies. We have bugs. We have used diapers, in some areas, as much as a foot-and-a-half to 2-feet high.”
In response, Erika’s attorney, claimed that she suffered from “mental illness.:
The shocking discovery was made just two weeks after four other children, ages 6 months, 3, 10, and 13 years old, were removed from the home by social services and put into the state’s care. Erika, who was arrested the same day the three babies were found inside of her home, is believed to be the mother of all 7 children.
As of her arraignment on Friday, Sept. 12, she has not been charged in the death of the three babies.Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. revealed that they have yet to identify the three babies ages or genders.
Erika’s is being held in police custody without bail and has been charged with fetal death concealment and witness intimidation. It is also possible that while she remains in custody, investigators could uncover even more bodies inside the home as they continue to search through the piles of filth, reports People.
Our thoughts remain with Erika’s four eldest children and her extended family during this very difficult time.
