Mother Killed Her Disabled Sons to End Their Suffering

 

After watching their father die from Huntingdon's Disease 3 brothers signed living wills that said if they got it they did not want to live and deteriorate the way their father, Hoyt Scott, had. Watching their dad "was agonizing" said James Scott.

All 3 of the sons had been diagnosed with the disease but James, the youngest son, only has it in the mild form at the moment. 250,000 Americans currently have Huntingdon's or are at risk of getting it. There is no cure for the degenerative disease.

Carol Carr could watch her two eldest son's torment no longer, she shot both of the boys in the head on Sunday morning. Carol now faces charges of malice murder. James said: "I think [my brothers] died a few years ago. Their life was over then."

  Huntingtons  
 
I've seen people with this syndrome and notice it often passes from parents to kids genetically as it looks like it did in this case. And its so degenerative you can tell parents who have it but they will often have sex anyway despite the high probability (50%) that their kids will get huntingtons. Sad story BTW.
