Triple Murder Ruled Out in Deaths of Md. Woman, 2 Kids Found in Car

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Hagerstown police have ruled out the possibility that a woman and her two young daughters found dead in their car were killed by someone else.

Capt. Paul Kifer said Thursday that investigators hope toxicology tests will show whether the 32-year-old woman deliberately killed herself and her children, ages six months and 18 months, or if they died accidentally in the closed vehicle on a 90-degree day. Those tests could take weeks.

Kifer says the car had been parked for hours in the Western Heights Middle School parking lot where the bodies were found Monday afternoon.

He says police hope to release the names of the deceased Thursday after speaking with the woman’s family members. She was from Guyana, and had recently moved to Hagerstown from West Virginia.
