A 7-month-old Baby Dies From Injuries Sustained Days After His Siblings Were Allegedly Murdered By His Mother

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office has verified that a 7-month-old boy from Duxbury, whose mother is accused of killing his two brothers and injuring him earlier this week, has passed away.

The boy, named Callan Clancy by the district attorney’s office, passed away at Boston Children’s Hospital at 11:18 a.m. on Friday.

In a news conference on Wednesday, authorities said that Lindsay Clancy, 32, is suspected of killing her children on Tuesday before attempting to commit suicide by jumping out of a window. Clancy’s husband apparently found the situation after getting home and dialled 911.

Dawson, 3, and Cora, 5, the couple’s two elder children, were rushed to a hospital where they were confirmed dead. The baby, Callan, was transported by medical helicopter to Children’s Hospital, where he was admitted with severe wounds.

Clancy has been charged with two charges of homicide, three counts of strangling, and one count each of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. He was also hospitalised and is currently in police custody. No new charges have been made public by the district attorney’s office.

Clancy’s case has aroused conjecture and discussion regarding postpartum mental disorder in new mothers, despite the fact that authorities have not yet identified a motive.

Community members gathered in Duxbury on Thursday for a vigil while still reeling from the tragic event. As of Friday afternoon, a GoFundMe to assist Clancy’s husband with paying for medical expenses, legal representation, and burial costs had amassed more than $400,000.

The Rev. Bill Williams of Holy Family Church addressed the crowd during the vigil and stated, “It’s inconceivable that such a sad thing would happen in a family anyplace, but here we are.
