Posted Apr 15, 2011

LaShanda Armstrong was a mother of four children. She drove her minivan off of a pier with four children inside on purpose. Armstrong and three of her children – Landon Pierre (5), Lance Pierre (2), and Lainaina Pierre (11 months) drowned. Lashaun, Armstrong’s 10 year old son, escaped out of a window as the van sank. Armstrong was acting strange before the incidence and she told a friend that she felt like someone was watching her. Armstrong and her boyfriend had a fight with her boyfriend before the incident as well. Before driving off the pier, Armstrong wrote a Facebook status that said “I’m sorry everyone forgive me please for what I’m gonna do? This is it!!!” [Gawker]
