A Pittsburgh woman has been arrested for doing the unthinkable: killing her infant son and attempting to kill her daughter, in order to get back at the children’s father, whom she suspected of cheating on her. As if that wasn’t bad enough, she apparently sent videos of the dead boy to his father via text message, along with messages such as “I’m killing them,” followed by an emoji of someone laughing so hard they’re crying. The dead boy was only 17-months old. His sister, who thankfully survived the ordeal, is 2.
Christian Clark, 21, began sending her boyfriend Andre Price Jr. threatening text messages around 9 p.m., Tuesday night. She was mad at Price for not cleaning up the house before going to work and she suspected he would be hooking up with another woman later that night. They had two children together, a girl, Angel, aged 2, and a boy, 17-month-old Andre Price III. Her texts grew increasingly unhinged. “Ya kids ain’t safe here I don’t want them here” she said in one. Another reads, “Answer me or im going to jail for child endangerment.” Then at 10:01, came one saying, “I’m killing them.”
15 minutes later, she sent Price a video of the two children laying face down on a comforter. Another video 5 minutes later shows her grabbing Angel’s head while she cries. When she grabs Andre’s head, the toddler does not move. “First of all she is clearly fine, because watch, see she is not dead,” she says in the video before adding, “Him on the other hand, he doesn’t budge. So you might want to call the ambulance.”
The children’s father made no attempt to contact authorities during the 2-hour bombardment of text messages, chronicling the abuse and murder of his offspring. It was apparently Clark who eventually called 911. She is currently being held in Allegheny County Jail, having been charged with criminal homicide and attempted homicide charges.
