A 42-year-old woman is being held in custody after the bodies of three children, all thought to be under the age of 5 were found at a property in New Malden, South London.
The discovery was made by Police on Tuesday at the expansive semi-detached house where the woman lived with her husband and four children.
The three children; a girl- 4, and two twin boys- 3, were believed to have had disabilities resulting from a genetic condition called ‘Life Limiting’ prompting their parents to carry out vast modifications in the house including a lift and ramp to aid the children’s mobility.
The parents named locally as Tania and Gary Clarence moved into the property last year and were said to be a happy family according to neighbours.
Mrs Clarence husband, Gary who works at City bank Investec, was absent from the scene as he was on holiday with the couple’s first daughter.
He is now said to be on his way back after the shocking incident.
According to the Guardian, Mrs Clarence was taken to hospital for treatment for Minor injuries after which she was arrested.
Police are continuing to question the mother of four with a hope to piece together the tragic circumstances that led to the death of the three children.
The police have confirmed that they aren’t looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.
