Berks County mother charged with murder in hanging deaths of 2 children

Lisa Rachelle Snyder

Fox News Flash top headlines for December 2 are here.

The story, as Lisa Rachelle Snyder told it, was horrifying: The Pennsylvania mother called 911 on September 23, saying that only minutes before she had discovered her two young children hanging from a support beam in the basement of their Albany Township home.

Authorities are linking the mother of two young children found hanging in a Berks County home to internet searches for suicide and crime shortly before their deaths, according to court documents filed in support of murder charges against the woman.

During Monday's press conference, Adams said Snyder's Samsung phone remains missing, but is believed to be the device she used to order a dog lead used in the killing of her youngest children - Conner Snyder, 8, and Brinley Snyder, 4. Snyder had suggested to a 911 dispatcher that Conner was suicidal because of bullying and took Brinley with him because he "didn't want to go alone". She was arrested at her home. Snyder was also charged with sexual intercourse with an animal, tampering with evidence, and animal cruelty.

The paper quoted Adams as telling reporters, "Eight-year-olds, generally, that I am aware of, do not commit suicide so of course, we had questions nearly immediately".


"I don't think that I can stand up here, nor can anyone, explain the horrific loss of two innocent children's lives". The criminal complaint stated that Lisa had searched the internet for "hanging yourself" and "carbon monoxide in a vehicle how long to die" before her children were found hanging in her basement. They had also looked for a dog, saying the weight of the dog would help in the investigation, but providing no further details.

36-year-old Lisa Snyder told police that her eight-year-old son Conner was bullied at school and had spoken about taking his own life.

The cord was wrapped around the main support beam of the basement and two chairs were overturned nearby, according to the reports.

Additionally, the station reported that officials said they spoke to numerous school officials, family members and classmates and found no evidence of bullying.
