The son's story doesn't match the investigators version, exactly. They believe she hit the water doing 20-30 mph, which would have been more than enough force to launch the SUV 10-20 yards into water, immediately causing it lose contact with the submerged part of the ramp and drift out farther into the river, free floating while taking on yet more water. Such a car would immediately stop running, the intake manifold fills with water in seconds and the motor stalls out. All the starter electronics short out immediately upon immersion.

It's doubtful with the vehicle in such a state that the motor would even turn over, never mind re-start. If so, how does the son know she tried to "reverse the car out " of the water?

Not debating his account of her saying she "made a terrible mistake". Just the part about attempts to reverse etc...can't be done with a sinking car.

Tragic loss, whatever the case.

What do you mean you don't know if you'll ever know what she was thinking? I think this article is pretty clear Mr. Police Chief.

Dear God, what is this pathetic world coming to, when parents are killing their children? Scripture warns of this in the end times. With all the agencies, churches, etc. out there, it is sad that this poor woman felt she had no where to turn. God bless this child.
GOD??? really?? you religious FRUITCAKES have been preaching END TIMES since 100 A.D

Riddle me this BUY-BULL THUMPER?

your "god" spent the entire OLD TESTAMENT, punishing, torturing, MAIMING and MURDERING MILLIONS of HUMANS he supposedly created in his own image just because they weren't as PERFECT as him.

your goD also WIPED OUT THE INNOCENT ALONG WITH THE GUILTY just because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

YOUR GOD killed countless of individuals ONE AT A TIME

SO MUCH FOR FREE WILL IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

So, your GOD who KNOWS ALL, and knows everyone's "heart" just sat there and watched this mother murder her kids?

For a GOD who can create (and destroy) earth, stopping a car engine to save lives would have been child'splay

But you go right ahead and PRAY TO THAT SAME god for his BLESSINGS on the moldy rotting corpses

What the hell difference does all that make now? Go back to watching your crime drama and leave the analysis to the experts.
