The mother accused of killing her two toddler boys has now lost custody of her remaining third child.
“She must have snapped,” says Helen Duley.
Helen Duley says she was stunned when she found out her daughter, Shaquan Duley, suffocated Shaquan’s two sons and strapped them into a car and drove the car into the river.
“I feel like I wanted her to talk about it. I wanted her to say what happened and why,” says Helen Duley.
The story made national headlines, including a special series on the “Oprah Winfrey Show.” Now, almost four months later, Helen Duley was granted custody of Shaquan Duley’s remaining child, her 5-year-old daughter. Helen Duley says this is the beginning of a long road ahead, but she says she plans on pacing herself for a power greater than her own.
Shaquan remains in jail awaiting a trial date. She is charged with two counts of murder after divers pulled the bodies of 2-year-old Devean Duley and 18-month-old Ja’van Duley out of the river on August 16.
