Patrick Clancy shares thoughts about 3 children, wife in statement on GoFundMe

The husband of Lindsay Clancy, the Massachusetts mother accused of strangling her three young children to death, is asking people to forgive her.

“The shock and pain is excruciating and relentless,” Patrick Clancy said in a statement posted by GoFundMe organizer Matthew Glaser.

“I want to share some thoughts about Lindsay. She’s recently been portrayed largely by people who have never met her and never knew who the real Lindsay was. Our marriage was wonderful and diametrically grew stronger as her condition rapidly worsened. I took as much pride in being her husband as I did in being a father and felt persistently lucky to have her in my life,” the statement read.

Lindsay Clancy, 32, is under police custody in a Boston hospital, Boston 25 News reports. She has been charged with two counts of murder, three counts of strangulation or suffocation and three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to an arrest warrant.

There was speculation based on recent Facebook posts that Lindsay suffered from postpartum depression.

The children were found “unconscious with obvious signs of trauma” in the Clancys’ Duxbury home after Patrick called 911 on the evening of Jan. 24 to report his wife’s attempted suicide.

Their names were 5-year-old Cora, 3-year-old Dawson and infant Callan, who were reported in media outlets as being between seven and eight months old.

The elder children were taken to the hospital where they were pronounced dead. The infant was flown to a Boston hospital for treatment, where he later died.
