Mother Intentionally Drove Off Cliff, Killing Her 3 Kids

Mother Intentionally Drove Off Cliff, Killing Her 3 Kids”

A MUM who drove her auto off a cliff and into a reservoir in a year ago killing her and her three young children did it deliberately, officials confirmed on Friday. This week, they collectively submitted their final conclusion.

From left, Anika Noel Voermans, 13, Gwyneth Grace Voermans, 8, Logan Robert Voermans, 11, were killed when the auto went into the water.

The sheriff's office rather depended on witness proclamations, and the nonattendance of slide imprints to establish that Bankhead deliberately drove of the precipice, murdering herself and her kids.

Noel Bankhead, a 40-year-old mother of three, drove a Land Rover holding her two little girls and child off a 50-foot bluff on June, 2, 2016.

Investigators found no skid or brake marks where the SUV went over the edge. The motor then sank 40 feet into the depths of Lucky Peak Lake in Idaho.

Officials said they found nothing mechanically wrong with the vehicle but were unable to recover information from a water-damaged device on the vehicle that records speed, acceleration and braking.

Bankhead and her husband divorced a few years prior to her death, although it's still unclear whether that played a part in the incident.

A study in the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law found that 80 per cent of parents who had killed their children had ongoing mood or thought disorder, and 70 per cent of mothers had previous contact with a psychiatrist or mental health professional. She at that point quickened all of a sudden, witnesses told authorities. She was ultimately sentenced to 35 years in prison. They said they had no other choice but to conclude that Bankhead purposely drove her SUV into the water knowing that she would die along with her three young children. She initially said her children had been taken by a carjacker.

Her obituary described her as an avid runner and full-time working mom who had worked as a paralegal and legal secretary for more than 20 years. Her children were described as active and curious with various interests and hobbies.
