INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - An Indianapolis woman whose two children were found dead on Sunday is finally speaking out.

Ebyan Farah, 28, spoke through her lawyers Wednesday night asking for privacy.

“Ebyan Farah will have no public comment in this matter, except to say she is devastated by her children’s tragic deaths,” Farah’s attorneys said in a statement...

Horrible case. Though the title indicates neglect through starvation, and there does indeed seem to be evidence of that, it's believed that the cause of death for the two children may have been "positional asphyxiation". Farah stuffed all five of her kids into a tiny closet, and then blocked them in with a bed for at least 10 hours.

Just horrible. I cannot imagine what the surviving kids are going through psychologically at this point.

If she is guilty, she had better become accustom to attention. She is going to receive a lot of it, especially in prison.

“And I want a yacht. Sometimes you just don’t deserve what you want.”

You seem nice enough ... I think you deserve a yacht.

I think Farah deserves to ride the lightening though.

If she gets life, she can rot and die alone. If she gets the needle, she can be buried alone in an unmarked grave. That’s plenty of privacy.

"Mrs. Farah hopes that members of the press and public will respect her need for privacy during this difficult time."

I'm paraphrasing the immortal words to the press given out by P. Diddy's press flack when J.Lo gave him the heave-ho after that unfortunate incident in NYC back in '99.

As a resident of Indiana, I'd much prefer she just be deported back to Somalia. Incarceration will cost the taxpayers a fortune in legal costs and prison time.

Privacy is used as a cover to protect women when they get an abortion. Why not a post-birth abortion?

She deserves some “eternal” privacy.

Animals care for their young far better than this “human”.

This is the result of not holding the parents strictly responsible for the care & raising of their children, but instead, are urged to let the Gubmint (the village) do it for them. Generations have now been produced with no love or respect for anyone but themselves.

The saying that “nobody cares about your children but you” now needs to read “nobody cares about your children INCLUDING you”.

Disgusting.

Police: 2 dead children were extremely thin

Dehydration suspected; mom charged with neglect

The detective investigating the deaths Sunday of two children on the city’s Southwestside said they, as well as their mother and surviving siblings, appeared to be extremely thin and possibly suffering from dehydration.

...

Their mother, Ebyan Farah, 28, was arrested and charged with two counts of neglect. Police were considering filing additional charges against her. She is the only suspect under investigation.

Three surviving children, ages 7, 5 and 1, were taken into protective custody by the Department of Child Services, which could mean they’re with family members or in foster care. DCS spokesperson Ann Houseworth declined to elaborate.

The Farah/Hassans are among a half-dozen families from war-torn Somalia living in the apartment complex. They have lived there about four years, neighbors said.

...

Kline, 45, whose mother lives next door, said the children were often outdoors even in the recent extreme heat, and that they’d be “beating and kicking at the door,” trying to get inside.

...

The Klines did not alert authorities — “we didn’t know who to call,” said Janice Kline.

“It does not appear we had an open assessment,” or investigation, of the family, said DCS’s Houseworth. “Obviously, we do now.”

Farah spoke some English and could drive. Her minivan was parked outside the apartment Monday. http://somalitalk.com/2010/09/21/indianapolis-mother-arrested-in-deaths-of-two-children-in-southwestside-apartment/

One glass of wine is not supposed to do this.

I think there is something seriously wrong with my eyes.

I have the paramedics on the way. :)

Farah is being represented by Jackie Butler, Mark King and DawnMarie White.

Why does she have three lawyers?

I’d say very unlikely from meth, it’s not part of their culture at all from what I’ve seen.

I saw on the news that the family tried to invoke Shariah law to have the children buried immediately but the coroner said no, there will be a proper autopsy for trial evidence.
