PHOENIX (AP) — A woman accused of drowning her 2-year-old twin sons told police she did it because nobody loved them or her, according to a court document released Monday. Emergency responders found Mireya Alejandra Lopez’s twin 2-year-old sons lying unresponsive on a bed, after responding to a family member’s 911 call from inside the house, The Arizona Republic reports.Mireya Alejandra Lopez was allegedly attempting to drown a third child at a home in Avondale, Arizona, when a family member raced to help the youngster just in time.A young mother drowns her twin 2-year-old boys and tries to drown another child (which thankfully doesn’t happen) and the first question we ask ourselves, because it’s the most logical, is, “Why?” According to police, Mireya Lopez, 22, told investigators she drowned her two boys and tried to drown another child before she was stopped by family members.

The third child wasn’t hurt. “During the course of the police investigation, suspect Mireya Alejandra Lopez … stated to police that she intentionally drowned both of her twin boys in the bathtub. She is alleged to have been under the influence of drugs when the boys were drowned and has said that she suffers from manic depression, psychosis and schizophrenia. Somewhere down the road, after investigators and prosecutors and mental health professionals and the courts work their way through this unbelievable horror, we will get an explanation.
