First, Judith Elizabeth Williams took her two cats to the shelter. Then she brought the family dog to the veterinarian, had it euthanized, and wrote a suicide note.
Then, investigators say, the 51-year-old Walnut Creek woman got in the car with her 16-year-old son, Adam Findley Williams, and drove up Mount Diablo. Near the top of the 3,849-foot peak, at a lookout with panoramic views of the Bay Area, she shot the teenager to death with a .357 handgun and turned the gun on herself, authorities said Wednesday.

Does anyone else appreciative the bibilical allusion? Except that this time there was no divine intervention.
It is amazing that people dig such holes for themselves then pull everyone in along with them. What a selfish hag this woman was to kill her son so the father presumably couldn’t “have” him.
Welcome to Obama’s America
I’ve been on Mt. Diablo. Fitting name too - Diablo - Devil.
Lots of nutjobs out in that part of the country. Lots of divorces and acrimonious ones too.
Mom sounds like a typical moonbat lib and dad sounds like a typical RINO.
In the liberal media, the woman must be blameless for these atrocities and a man (preferably the father) is always ultimately responsible.
The boy was 16. The divorce was 13 years ago. I think this is just an attempt to lay some of the blame on the father rather than admit that this “single mom” is another statistic in the mounting evidence that single motherhood is bad for children.
There is some weird trend going on with moms in their 40s-50s killing teenage sons and themselves. There was that story here before of the mom and son that went to an indoor range and she killed him while he was on the firing line, then herself. There were 1 or two more stories like this I’ve seen in between this latest one and that one.
Mental illness ( and surely you would agree that this woman was deranged) has no logic. While you may think of this as selfish and purposely done to “hurt” her ex, the depth of her pathology wouldn’t have allowed her to think that rationally. It is a tragedy of the most horrendous type.
Prayers for the family
Lowlife nutty criminal female... yawn
At least no divine intervention that we know of.
I’ll bet both women were democrats.
??? This has never happened before?
Or maybe she was simply insane which means she should have been institutionalized, but the libs threw them out on the streets years ago to mainstream them.
Not unless you believe in reincarnation. I figgered we all had only one life on the earth.
How are the cats?????
No, I don’t, but I don’t understand the welcom to Obamas’ America reference?
There ought to be a law against that
That's an Abraham and Isaac reference. Always gave me the creeps, the way some people try to defend that one.
Odd that she cared more for the cats than her own son.
At least its odd to someone sane.
The cats were probably female. The dog male.
The ultimate feminist. The Andrea Dworkin of animal lovers.
Welcome to Obamas America
Is that the new “Bush’s fault”?
Sounds like Mommy was off her meds? Why would she kill her son but take her cats to the shelter?
Why kill the freakin’ dog ??? There are “no kill” shelters around - ‘specially in SF ...
Abraham knew that God would raise up Isaac, even if he killed him.
Which is a sense he did, by stopping Abraham from killing him.
You seem to forget that Issac was a miracle baby and that God had promised that he would be Abraham's heir, that is why Abraham told the young men, that THEY would be back.(Heb.11:17)
