Mother suffocated daughters before hanging herself.

A Hastings coroner has found a Haumoana woman most likely suffocated two of her children before hanging herself. Melissa Dorward and her daughters Keira and Ellah Watson were found dead in their coastal Hawke’s Bay property in July 2009.

Mother suffocated daughters before hanging herself – coroner.

The bodies were found by Ms Dorward’s brother in law who was returning her two sons from a overnight stay with him. Detective Senior Sergeant Dave de Lange said the two girls, aged 4 and 2, were found face up in a double bed while 31 year old Melissa Doward was found in the bathroom.

Coroner Chris Devonport said Ms Dorward was under certain pressures, including her fifth pregnancy, at the time of her death.

    i think its completely disgusting how any parent or caregiver can even think to hurt any child wheater they are newborn or 10 yrs or 15yrs. its sick and pathetic,
    they are innocent and precious and no child should have to go through the pain and torture that some have its not there fault no matter what situation the family is going through at the time.. if i could i would travel the world and hug and love every baby/child that has ever been hurt.
    there is no justification for anyone who participates in child abuse if anything they should be tortured the same way + some more.
    hugs and kiss’s to all the beautifull babys that have passed over the years.xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
