We have no words. Two young children ages 5 & 7 were allegedly drowned by their own mother. Sheborah Thomas confessed to killing them after they were found buried underneath a neighbor’s house. And shockingly she was caught on tape just hours after the reported attack, picking up a $47 paycheck. SO horrific!
Chilling CCTV footage has emerged showing Texas mom, Sheborah Thomas, 30, trying to collect a $47 paycheck just HOURS after allegedly drowning her two young children in a bathtub. She was filmed walking into The Little Cajun Kitchen restaurant in Houston, Texas, on Aug. 13, where manager Santiago Wesley revealed she was agitated and sweaty before blowing up at the staff.
Even worse, police say that the previous day, after daycare on Aug. 12, Sheborah had drowned her son Oraylyn ‘RayRay’ Thomas, 7, and 5-year-old daughter Kayana at her home before wrapping their bodies in sheets and pushing them under a neighbor’s house. Her boss told ABC13 that he hired Sheborah two months ago, but was forced to let her go two weeks ago after an argument.
The day after the alleged murder, she returned to the restaurant to pick up her final paycheck. However, Santiago refused to issue her the check because it was two days before payday. “She spent two or three hours here, screaming and hollering, trying to get her last check. Just sweating,” he said.
And we’re not surprised by her erratic behavior. After all, she did admit to murdering her children, something that reportedly occurred just hours earlier. After feeding her children on Aug. 12, Sheborah told investigators that she drew a bath and called Kayiana into the bathroom. Once the girl was in the tub, the mother said she grabbed the girl by the head and forced her underwater, holding her there until she stopped moving, according to the news site.
After that, they say Sheborah placed the girl’s body on the bed and called her 7-year-old son into the bathroom and did the same thing to him. The boy, she allegedly told detectives, struggled, but then stopped moving. She placed him on the bed next to his sister, investigators say in court records. She then placed their bodies in a trashcan, moving them the next day to a spot underneath a neighbor’s house — after she returned from The Little Cajun Kitchen.
All of this was uncovered on the morning of Aug. 14 when one of Sheborah’s acquaintances flagged down police. He told authorities she had asked him to help her move to the southwest side of town. He noticed the kids weren’t around and he asked her about them. She responded “matter-of-factly” that she had killed them. Sheborah has been charged with capital murder. She is being held without bond.
