In 2003, the Australian was convicted Kathleen Folbigg to 30 years in prison for murdering his four barn, on four different occasions.
Her eldest son Caleb died 19 days old, in 1989. Her second son Patrick died two years later, in 1991, at the age of eight months.
The daughter Sarah died, ten months old, in 1993 – and the youngest daughter Laura died 1999, 19 months old.
The mother was the one who found the dead children
Folbigg was the first on the scene on all four occasions – but she has always claimed that the children died of natural causes.
Inflammation of the heart wall, epilepsy and sudden infant death syndrome are what caused the deaths of children, according to herself.
The important diary
During the investigation, a diary belonging to Folbigg was found, and it came to play an important role in the evidence that convicted her.
Here, the mother of four has made a whole series of startling notes before and after her child died.
“I feel like the worst mother on earth. Afraid she’s going to leave me now like Sarah did. I know I had a short temper and was mean sometimes, and then she left. With a little help,” Folbigg wrote in a diary entry.
“Now I have learned to walk away and breathe for myself for a little while. It helps me understand how to help her. With Sarah, I just wanted her to keep quiet. And one day she did,” he wrote. she in another.
Researchers may have found an explanation
It has been almost two decades since Folbigg was imprisoned – and last year researchers discovered that her deceased daughters carried a genetic mutation that causes irregular heartbeats.
A similar gene has also been discovered in his son Patrick.
This has led experts to question the verdict against the mother of four. 90 researchers, doctors and experts have now signed a petition, sending it to the Mayor of New South Wales.
Kathleen Folbigg now wishes to have her case reconsidered in court. According to her, technical evidence can acquit her of the murders.
