Depressed mother, 4 children dead in murder-suicide in Jerusalem

Police and firefighters break down the door of a fifth floor apartment, finding victims' bodies. The woman was found lying next to a noose
She had sought psychiatric help from city services a month ago for depression, and had phoned welfare authorities for a baby sitter.

A fire at a home on Jerusalem's Derech Hebron killed a woman her four daughters aged two to 12 on Sunday, Magen David Adom paramedics said. The possibility that the fire is a murder–suicide is suspected.

"All possible scenarios are being investigated," the head of the Jerusalem firefighters said.

"This is a very hard scene in which a mother and her four daughters are dead. We are investing what happened, what is this woman's background and what led to such a tragic outcome. It might be that this is a fire, [but] we are also investing the possibility this is a suicide and murder," he said.

Firefighters recovered the bodies while putting out the blaze. The apartment where the fire took place was on the fifth floor, police and firefighters had to break down the door, and paramedics arrived and pronounced the victims deaths. 

Firefighter Arik Abuloff said he found the mother lying on the floor next to a noose, after breaking into the locked home from a neighbor's balcony. 

Paramedic Menachem Astrik, the first person on the scene, said: "I saw smoke from the first floor window and I went upstairs into a house filled with smoke, breaking in together with firefighters.

"I saw a woman in her 30s unconscious, who wasn't breathing and had no pulse. I gave her first aid but we pronounced her dead soon after. Firefighters brought to the balcony four wounded victims, unconscious, a girl of 12 and three younger girls. They sustained severe burns. We tried to revive them but had to pronounce their deaths at the scene."

The woman had recently sought help from the city's psychiatric services, complaining of depression. The authorities are now investigating the diagnostic process she went through.

Welfare authorities said the woman had reached out to them three months ago, in a telephone call seeking a baby sitter, a service they could not provide. They urged her to come in for some help but she refused, and they did not initiate any visit.

Firefighters found the children, ages 11, 9, 4 and 11 months, dead in a locked bedroom of a fifth-story apartment that had been set ablaze in southern Jerusalem. The girls’ mother, who is the primary suspect in their murder, was found hanged on the balcony.

Police say only an autopsy will enable them to determine whether the girls were killed in the fire, or, as investigators suspect, by strangulation beforehand by their mother.

The names of the children and the parents, immigrants to Israel from France, were not released to the public. Friends, acquaintances and neighbors of the family expressed their horror and disbelief at the tragedy.
A neighbor told Ynet that the “family had made aliyah from France 13 years ago, the children were born here. The mom always looked to be a strong, assertive woman.”
Another neighbor said he had seen the mother and daughters playing in an adjacent park a day earlier and everything seemed normal.
A friend of the family, who gave Ynet the first name Shmuel, said the family was “exceptional,” describing the mother as “brilliant, caring and warm.”
Hebrew-language media reported that the woman had been receiving psychiatric treatment, but there was no confirmation of the reports.
