Killing Of 3 Daughters: Woman Arranged Bodies On Bed

The killing of 3 baby girls has shocked a California community and left a family torn apart, and police say the woman responsible is in the hospital with self-inflicted wounds.

30-year old Carol Coronado faces three counts of murder and one count of attempted murder after she stabbed her young daughters to death and tried to kill her own mother, officials say. The woman’s mother arrived at the Los Angeles home on Tuesday for a visit and found the bodies arranged on a bed with Coronado lying nude beside them.

“The babies were on the bed,” Lt. Dave Coleman said. “And not in a haphazard fashion, they were placed on the bed, so how and where they were killed, we’re going to have to figure that out.”

Authorities say they have no motive for the murders of 2 1/2-year old Sophia, 16-month old Yazmine, and 2-month old Xenia, but they are investigating her mental health and whether she may have suffered from postpartum depression. The girls’ father, Rudy, is understandably devastated, but according to a relative, he thinks something else was at play when the murders occurred.

“Right now, he’s giving her the benefit of doubt,” John Carrion said. “He just said he didn’t believe he saw Carol — he saw a demon inside her. He said he doesn’t blame Carol. He blames the … demon.”

Coronado suffered at least one self-inflicted stab wound to the chest, but is reportedly expected to recover and will be booked as soon as she is released from the hospital. She faces the death penalty if found guilty.

    How can this be anything but insanity?

    • yahoo

      Insanity indeed—but don’t rule out demonic possession–just like the man said. I know a lot of people don’t belief in such things, but a demon doesn’t have to be a loud, raucous dramatic existence… This circumstance in perfectly indicative to demon-fostered behavior.

  • Unreal

    I think it’s time we quit saying insanity and kill the woman just like she killed the children. We keep excusing these people and more and more are murdering their children. If she didn’t want them, give them away or leave them on a park bench.

    • fsdfdsfa

      Yes, I’m sure if she had to do it over she would do the same thing. The ONLY way a person should deserve death is if she planned it which is 1st degree and she is for sure not even just capable of doing it again but an actual danger to society as in the prison guards cant possibly handle her…Since she was a good person her entire life I would guess she had a temporary moment of insanity…research research research…what she did happens a lot more than you would think it just doesn’t go this far usually

    birth control in 2014 can we say it again birth control. wow 2 1/2, 18 mths, and 2 mths old back to back to back having babies like this, come on. Who is this father, why in the hell would he continue making babies with this psycho or just making babies period! He has a part in this too! damn this is horrible bu at least th kids are now out of danger and in heaven away from both these looser idiots. Rediculous and sad at the same time.

    • Tim

      Out of danger? they’re dead!! Explain to me ,like I’m a 3 year old, how the father has a part in this too. He could have loved his kids. All I’m saying is nobody knows anything about the father by this article. Try not to assume too much. All we know by this article is the mother is crazy.

      • Caligirli

        Not assuming but going off what was reported in regards to the father. He apparently was outside working underneath or up top on the car when grandma came running out the house after she herself was attacked by the nut bucket daughter. Then yes he shares responsibility in the prevention process, remember it takes two. He’d have to be totally brain dead, or tuned out on her, or maybe a little off himself to not 1st want to slow down the baby production one after another they had going on.

        If one is not being responsible then the other should step up. We are still in a recession, last I heard & I know as a parent myself the cost in having & caring for children. I have 2 sons ages 24 & 14 & although we’re divorced we have co-parented from day one. The oldest with his dad in New Orleans, the youngest with me in Los Angeles now. We are & remain very stern in teaching them from early on responsibility & consequences of there actions as young men.

        • fsdfdsfa

          You literally didn’t explain at all what you mean and how it’s the dad’s fault…so in your way of thinking….Your husband takes the kids for a day…and then kills them…and you’re responsible because it takes two? That doesn’t make sense

    • theotherRJH

      Are you really that dumb? Please, sterilize yourself as YOU should have been aborted. Fool.

      • Caligirli

        I rarely ever respond to a miserable negative fool but hey on my way out the door laughing! I said oh what the hell. U clearly have my mom confused with the stories about your mom, who I heard actually tried & failed to abort the demon seed which is now u!

        So now ur officially turned off! HAHA just how pathetic, worthless & bored are u to reply to comments, post ur own comment dumb bumb & keep it pushing, simple!!! Ok im going shopping now!!

        IT BEEN FUN!!

        • fsdfdsfa

          Rarely ever respond….so you do and as you are responding and admitingly respond other times you call someone dumb for not posting their own? Nothing you say makes any sense…keep it pushing…good thing you’re decent looking I guess…otherwise be useless..”It been fun”..What?….go shopping…sounds about right

          • theotherRJH

            Caligirli might be one of the stupidest people on the face of the earth. I am GLAD she blocked my disqus ID. The last thing I want to do is learn anything.

        • theotherRJH

          Dumb bi—-tch. Please never breed.

    • fsdfdsfa

      Are you fn kidding me? So….if you have a friend facing some kind of depression that has always been a good person and parent…then that friend loses her mind and kills her kids…are you to blame for seeing her depression and not realizing she was going to kill her babies? ridiculous

    • http://purple.com yeah i know

      Birth control is a failure for some fertile myrtles. I had 3 in 3 years all on BC. After #3 I got my tubes tied. Many years later i felt like I wanted to plan a baby with my husband so we untied my tubes with a 50% change of pregnancy in 2 year. I got pregnant immediately!

    • Jdawg

      Caligirli it’s quite obvious that you are a moron.

    • Anne Fisher

      What sexism! Why is it, if the dad had killed the kids, that the mom was not automatically assumed to be at fault by so many in the public and the media? You are also being VERY judgmental, based on this VERY sketchy and poorly written article. Other reports give more information about the dad than this one, which only mentions him in passing. Based only on this story, we can only know he is alive, but NOTHING ELSE. Was he living with them? Divorced? Working away from home for weeks at a time? Unemployed and living in the house with them? You have no idea, and therefore NO right to judge! Not to mention, many of these psychos are VERY good at hiding their true feelings and wacko fantasies. Don’t be such a jerk!

      • yahoo

        Very good point! She might not have been the culprit at all. Kudos!

      • theotherRJH

        The nimrod you responded too might be one of the stupid people on the face of the earth. With luck, she be raped or killed in a violent manner.

        She is unworthy of the oxygen she breathes.

        • Anne Fisher

          theotherRJH: WHAT AN *EVIL* THING TO SAY!!! I don’t care how much you disagree with someone, NO ONE is “lucky” to be RAPED!! This has GOT to be THE stupidest, most vicious, & SICKEST comment I have read EVER, on ANY board (and that’s saying something). After reading some of the other gruel you’ve been trawling out under this story, you really need a good SHRINK, pal. You are violent, crass, foul-mouthed, and abusive to women in other parts of these comments, as well. For the love of God, GET SOME PROFESSIONAL HELP! And until you’ve had enough treatment to see other people as human beings with rights & feelings, and treat their opinions (right or wrong) with civilized respect… STAY AWAY FROM OTHER PEOPLE (especially females), and STAY OFF COMMENT BOARDS. You are very, VERY… SICK IN THE HEAD.

          • theotherRJH

            I stand by my comments.

        • fsdfdsfa

          While we seem to agree…That’s a little too far brother….you must have some stored up aggression to post that ..LOL….need to beat a punching bag or beat up something that feels betterlllLOL

          • theotherRJH

            I was trying to prove a point of her obvious stupidity. Of course I don’t want her raped and killed, that would just a waste of some poor guy’s time. But what she needs to understand, and she never will, is how moronic she sounds in her statement.

            An eighth grade dropout could ID her as a unfit to breed mouthbreather pretty easily.

    Insanity but not Criminally Insane — lock her up for the rest of her life.

  • Catrina

    Demons dont kill people, people kill people.

  • http://purple.com yeah i know

    It is called post partum psychosis, when she comes back to reality she will wish the death penalty on herself.

    • Jdawg

      …which she should most undoubtedly receive. You kill you own kids, you don’t deserve to live.

      • fsdfdsfa

        The lack of empathy is remarkable….Do you know how a child changes the chemicals in a woman’s body….You’re brain has to completely rewire itself to go back to its normal state. Some people get it worse than others, some people handle it better than others…She will want to die when she becomes herself again…great comment yeah i know…100% accurate….When you 3 in that short of a span and your brain is almost literally rewiring at all times…..it happens…This stuff isn’t a joke and is real…unless you dont believe in science and believed dinosaurs roamed the earth just 5000 years ago…Research stuff before slamming others about things you seem to not know much about

  • alyce1213

    No, she won’t get the death penalty, nor should she, because the “demons” are symptomatic of postpartum psychosis. This poor soul will suffer the rest of her life for what she did, it’s tragic all around.

  • yahoo

    Very good Anne Fisher! She might not at all have been the culprit. We don’t knowenough about what happened according to the way the article was written. The kids were ‘positioned’ in such a way that puzzled the investigators. The woman herself was assaulted and was probably in shock. We don’t know who was there before any of this had kicked off.

    • Anne Fisher

      Actually, what I was trying to say was, that if you have a DIFFERENT case where the FATHER killed the kids b/c of some mental illness, then the media and the public wouldn’t automatically blame the mother for not taking action, AND assume that she was aware of his problems (as they seem to be doing here, where the accused killer is female and the supposedly ignorant and innocent spouse is male). Instead, the accused killer would be spoken of as an animal and a violent monster. Because this is a FEMALE perpetrator, then the accused-killer wife is set up as a pitiful innocent victim of her own hormonal imbalance, and the husband is automatically crucified in the court of public opinion– when there are NO real facts about his situation or awareness of her condition to substantiate ANY kind of moral judgment against him. It is a very sexist thing to blame one gender in a situation where the other gender (given the same circumstances) is allowed to be blameless. Until some formal legal charges and convictions are leveled against this father, I for one will do the morally correct thing and allow him to be innocent until proven guilty, and allow myself to feel compassion for his pain, just as I would do for a wife whose husband killed her children.

    Being too radically religious is a mental illness. If this sick husband could seriously say this about his sick wife, then both need to have decades of therapy because both are a danger to society. If you can honestly believe that a “demon” made something happen, you are mentally unstable and have no right being free in society.

    • Anne Fisher

      You ask me, the man is trying to find some way to deal with his pain, and with the betrayal of trust that his wife has done against him. He deserves our compassion more than our condemnation.

    • fsdfdsfa

      You joking…the way he responded? I dont know if you’re married or have kids but imagine walking home one day and all 3 of your young children are murdered and your wife did it…I don’t feel like rereading but didnt the guys mom get stabbed as well? So 3 kids dead…wife gone forever and your mom just got stabbed…..There is no NORMAL way to react to that and if you’ve dealt with depression or bipolar then you would know, this isn’t exaggerated, that the “demon” is pretty right on. I highly doubt he meant that literally but he needs to find a way to cope with this and if demon does it good for him…Lot easier than accepting your wifes a psycho…shes almost all he has now so he needs her and cant believe she is a complete psycho and keep her around. He must convince himself something bigger at play like in God’s plan or a fn demon..May sound crazy but what response do you expect
