Psychologist shoots twin daughters while sleeping, and then commits suicide

A 55-year-old psychologist shot and killed two twin 7-year-old daughters while they slept. Then she killed herself. The case occurred in Washington, in the United States.

Michele Deegan had a legal fight with her ex-husband for guarding the girls. She had reported him in court for domestic violence. One hypothesis is that the crime was committed as a result of this dispute in the courts. The information is from the Daily Mail.

Michele was a therapist and, on her personal website, stated that her objective was precisely “to teach her clients new ways of dealing with problems, healthy behaviors and attitudes, communication skills to live with families, partners and co-workers so that can make changes in their lives ”.

Before shooting the girls and taking her own life, she shared posts on her Facebook about how living with narcissists can motivate suicide.

THE Metropolises has a policy of publishing information about suicide cases or attempts that occur in public places or cause social mobilization. This is because it is a topic discussed with great care by people in general. The silence, however, camouflages another problem: the lack of knowledge about what, in fact, leads these people to kill themselves.

Depression, schizophrenia and the use of illicit drugs are the main ills identified by doctors in a potential suicide. Problems that could be treated and avoided in 90% of cases, according to the Brazilian Psychiatric Association.
