Texas Mom Says She Killed Kids Because They Were Austistic:
Dallas mom, Saiqa Akhter, killed her two children because they were autistic: 911 recording:
I originally posted about Saiqa Akhter here. It turns out that not only has the 2-year-old died but both children were Autistic.
In my previous post I speculated that the reason she killed her children was because of the Autism. She allegedly told police that her children were ‘not normal’. What is normal? As my lovely wife is fond of saying normal is overrated.
She also allegedly tried to get the kids to drink bathroom cleaner but they wouldn’t so she choked them to death instead.
Akhter has been charged with capital murder which makes her eligible for the death penalty but even in Texas women like this are rarely executed.
Thanks to everyone who sent in a tip.
Irving mother accused of killing her son, injuring her daughter:
Irving Mom Used Wire To Strangle Children:
Uncle: Mom accused in kids’ chokings depressed:
30-year-old Saiqa Akhter of Irving, Texas has been arrested for strangulating her children. Her 5-year-old son is dead and her 2-year-old daughter is not expected to live.
Akhter allegedly called 911 stating that she had just killed her children with a wire.
A relative is already trotting out the excuse that she was ‘depressed’ however I’m thinking it may have had more to do with the fact that her son was Autistic. However as I am wont to say that is just speculation on my part.
But what is it with Texas and ‘depressed’ Breeders that kill their kids? Andrea Yates and Otty Sanchez leap immediately to mind. I’m not trying to mess with Texas but anecdotally it seems like this is a Texas kind of thing.
Thanks to Jennifer for the tip.
