A Texas mom has turned herself in and confessed to a double-murder against her two small daughters whom she said were “abused.”
Madison McDonald, 30, told detectives that she smothered Lillian Mae McDonald, 1, and Archer Hammond, 6, after sedating them.
Irving Police released footage of the mother using their headquarters’ lobby phone to report the tragic crimes.
“This is video of 30-year-old Madison McDonald inside the Irving Police Department headquarters last night. Police say she showed up and used the lobby phone to call 911 and tell them she killed her two daughters ages 1 and 6,” a local news outlet reported.
According to the affidavit, McDonald told police she was ready to do anything to protect her daughters even if it is “eliminating them.”
“We’re trying to figure out the why,” Irving Police Officer Robert Reeves said.
“We may not ever know the why because there’s not going to be a definition or a reason that would ever justify the murder of two small children.”
