Three children killed in Vienna – mother arrested


The 31-year-old mother reported to the police and confessed at the interrogation. The autopsy confirmed the suffocation of the two girls and the eight-month-old boy.

A 31-year-old is said to have killed her three small children – two girls (3, 9) and an eight-month-old boy – in Vienna-Donaustadt on Saturday. After a suicide attempt, which, according to the police, caused minor injuries, the woman reported on the emergency number where she had confessed the killing offense. She also confirmed her information in the first interview. The first autopsy report was available on Sunday: the nine-year-old was suffocated with a pillow.

The other two children should also be autopsied on the weekend. According to the police, it can be assumed that they too died from suffocation. The motive for the act may have been marital problems. The woman, who lived separated from her husband, is to be questioned again on Sunday and then brought before the judge who will decide on the custody. For the police, the act has been resolved, said police spokesman Paul Eidenberger.

The police officers who found the bodies received psychological care. Such supervision was also planned for the nine-year-olds’ classmates.

The mother made the emergency call at around 5:20 a.m. Police rushed to the one-story apartment building near Kagraner Platz. Because the woman from Nepal announced when she called her that she wanted to kill herself, she was first pinned down by the first emergency services. When the apartment was searched, the boy and the three-year-old were found dead. In the case of the nine-year-old, who was still being taken to hospital, there was apparently hope of resuscitating her. The helpers tried to reanimate the child for around an hour, but ultimately in vain.

According to Eidenberger, the woman herself had injuries in the hand area that were not so severe that she should have been taken to the hospital. They were superficial cuts by a knife. A medical officer assessed the 31-year-old as capable of questioning and liable.

Investigators brought the terrible news to the father at his workplace in a restaurant in the Alsergrund district. In the family, which had evidently lived in Austria for years, a few weeks ago there had been a violent argument with mutual assault, which ended with the 44-year-old being expelled. “A ban on entering and approaching was imposed, which ended at the end of September and has not been extended to an injunction,” which the 31-year-old could have applied for, said the police spokesman.

Separation was apparently in the room

From the family environment it was reported that the woman should have been in a psychologically difficult situation since the birth of the youngest child. There was a dispute with the 44-year-old, a separation or divorce was apparently in the room. The 31-year-old is said to have feared losing the children in this case. The man had not recently lived with his wife and children.

The Vienna Child and Youth Welfare Service “has known the family for two weeks when they were informed about eviction by the police,” announced their spokeswoman Andrea Friemel when asked by APA. In the case of evictions, what is known as a risk assessment is started as standard. “In the course of this procedure there were personal and telephone contacts with the parents and the children as well as with the school and the Vienna Intervention Center against violence in the family. The parents showed the relationship problems listed in the eviction,” said the spokeswoman. A risk to the children “was not foreseeable during the contacts”. With regard to the relationship conflict between the parents, a need for advice was perceived, whereupon counseling appointments were organized with the support of an interpreter. “Such a tragic act by the mother is shocking and unforeseeable,” said Friemel.
