Who is Odette Joaossaint?
A Miami woman strangled her two children with red tape this week, telling stunned police, “I don’t want them anymore,” according to a report.
Odette Joaossaint, 41, called 911 and hung up multiple times before officers went to her home for a wellness check Tuesday night, the Miami Herald reported.
“Come get them,” she told the doctors and police officers who arrived over the dead children, according to the outlet. “I do not want them”.
Rescuers found two boys bound and unconscious inside the house and desperately tried to revive them.
According to an arrest report, Joaossaint admitted to tying up the boys, ages 5 and 3, before strangling them with red ribbon.
She later told detectives that she was having financial and mental problems and that the children were suffering under her care.
Both boys, Laural Belval, 5, and Jeffrey Belval, 3, were pronounced dead at the scene.
Miami police spokesman Michael Vega said the heinous crime left veteran officers in shock.
Joaossaint faces two counts of first degree murder.
A neighbor told ABC 7 that the troubled mother would sometimes beg her to adopt the doomed children, telling her she couldn’t raise them.
Her distraught father appeared on Wednesday but refused to speak to reporters.
