Pennsylvania Mom Who Killed Two Sons Because They Were "Possessed by a Demon" Found Dead in Navajo County

Meghan Lippiatt, found insane following murder of two sons, was discovered dead in a rural part of Navajo County.
A Pennsylvania mom whose insanity defense allowed her to beat the rap in the slayings of her two sons was found dead in a canyon in northern Arizona over the weekend.

Authorities think the death might be a suicide.

Meghan Lippiatt, 35, of Mount Joy, Pennsylvania was found dead Saturday in the wreckage of her white Volkswagen minivan. The wreckage was found crashed in a canyon -- about a two-hour hike from the closest road -- in Navajo County, Department of Public Safety officials say.

Authorities say she may have been dead for nearly a week before she was found by tourists.

Lippiatt killed her two sons -- Silas, 2, and Myles, 4 months -- in 2004.

She told authorities that her "children were possessed by a demon" and that "she was possessed and the only way to save all of them was to end their lives."

Lippiatt suffocated Myles, then drowned Silas in a tub.

She was found not guilty by reason of insanity after a nonjury trial in December 2007.

Following the verdict, a psychiatrist examined Lippiatt and found her to be competent for release. She went to live with her parents in Pennsylvania, despite prosecutors' demands that she be institutionalized.

Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves tells New Times that it's unclear what Lippiatt was doing in Arizona, but says it appears she may have been to the scene of her death before.

"She knew what she was doing when she came here," he says. "[The area where she was found] is so remote it would be very hard to find without knowing where it is."

Graves wouldn't speculate about whether Lippiatt came to Arizona to kill herself.

The Navajo County Medical Examiner will determine a cause of death after an investigation.

Rest in peace Meggers, you were too good for this world.   All the assholes and trolls below didn't know you and how awesome you were, and didn't see the dignity with which you bore the burden of your sins.  Like the murderer on the cross next to Christ, you were someone who did something wrong but became destined for Heaven...

The sadness that tore you apart breaks my heart even still... a sadness I know too well, it was so much like my own.  I wish I had been a better person for those months I knew you... maybe this wouldn't have happened.

You were better than this... I wish you had just lived your dream rather than given in to your demons again... when you disappeared, I never really thought that you were going to do anything except find the dreams you talked about so much... I never understood why you felt like you couldn't contact anyone... now I do... I guess this was your plan all along....

I love you Megan... you're a peach and anyone who doesn't know you & doesn't know what happened has no right to speak... it's horrible what evil & ignorant people did to your life...  people can look at one day, and never see the truth of the bigger picture, that we're all born with a destiny, and circumstances, and a lot of things beyond our control.  You tried to save them... so few really know that ... I do...

People, whoever among you wants to speak ill of the dead, know this, she is probably a way better person than you'll ever be, and I hope the same hormonal rollercoaster that turns your wife or sister or friend into a hormonal, emotional mess never hits the intensity where she hears voices and feels real pain coming from nowhere but the unfathomable darkness itself...  you can't even fathom what it's like for your body to betray you and no longer be able to be yourself...  look at every stroke victim who can no longer speak....  you'll see the truth...  the brain is fragile and can be overwhelmed to where it no longer gives the soul its own rightful expression... yet look in Megan's eyes and you don't see a monster, you see a beautiful woman and true kindness that's rooted very deep...

I'm fucking sick of people even having opinions, you don't know anything about biology or psychology, you probably can't even fathom the complex & delicate balance of life...  it's so easy to look at a paragraph in a newspaper and pronounce judgment when you don't even know the person, or even a single fact... I'm an excellent judge of character, and Megan's flaws are not those of a selfish or criminal person.... and none of your business anyway... trust me in that if you really knew her, you would be ashamed of what you're saying.

I'm Me
I'm Me

Regardless, she's dead now because she knew what she did was wrong. Welp. You dont always need a court/judge to distinguish what is guilty or not. She did it herself and the rest of the world a favor. eh

I would love to see the same fate happen to Casey Anthony....Wait that would just mean that she would have to be found innocent first.Check that, I hope Casey is found guilty, given the death penalty and is gang raped every night for the next 10 years on death row for what she did to that beautiful innocent child.Both crimes are terrible but what Casey did to her child I don't think compares to a real life disease that many of us can never come close to understanding!

When a dog attacks and kills a human being it is put to sleep.  It isn't really the dog's fault that it acted in its nature and killed a human being, but that doesn't matter.  What matters is that the dog is a danger to society and has committed a terrible act against all humanity.  For that reason the dog must be destroyed.  This is the same reason why any parent that intentionally a child must be removed from society, regardless of their motivations.  Such a person is a danger to everyone else in the world and must be removed.

If you want to be completely sterile and scientific about it, simply sterilizing her would have sufficed to keep it from happening again, as it was a POSTPARTUM psychosis.

Though I personally wouldn't have supported it in this specific case.  But those facts which form my opinion are private and not for some random person on the internet to know.

Guest

The problem with society today is that people figure someone must be crazy or insane to do this kind of thing, she got away with it and it wasn't guilt that made her kill herself but the fact that people could see thru her bullshit act ... She didn't figure on people treating her like crap especially since the family apparently was so damn forgiving of her murdering two babies

Guest

Someone doesnt have to be crazy to kill their children, I've studied these cases for over 20 years and these types of people are narcissistic that's what they are, they feel like their kids are better off dead then without them

Conace21
Conace21

Yeah, because all people who kill their children are alike. Don't you dare lump Meghan with someone like Casey Anthony. Meghan was sick, even the state conceded she wasn't mentally competent to stand trial for 3 years.And it wasn't about forgiving Meghan. That implies that she had knowingly done something wrong. Her immediate family suffered way more than I could, losing their grandsons and nephews. How dare you dismiss their feelings so callously.

No, she did not "fool" anyone. How would you know if she did? You never met her; you're basing this all on what you read in the paper. My family knew her, and knew she was displaying sins of erratic behavior immediately after her youngest son was born. This was not something that only cropped up after the fact.And I will say there was one person who knew what was going on; the judge in the case. He heard the testimony on both sides, reviewed the records, and issued the decision that she was NOT guilty and did NOT deserve to be punished.And you don't have to remind me about the fact that she killed her kids. I remember. The night I heard about it waswas one fof the worst times in my life. My uncle and aunt will never get over it. And now they have to deal with another tragedy. How the hell is that justice or karma?

Guest

so what she "fooled" the state and her family..she chose to kill her kids..that is the final act she committed ... and maybe that is what made her crazy afterwards..for you to say that you know what is in a persons head is just as ludicrous as me saying it...but i am only commenting on the facts here, she KILLED HER BABIES!!! and should pay the ultimate PRICE...and now she has...

This was not justice. This was a 2nd devastating tragedy for Meghan's family. 7 years after suffering through another tragedy. Funny how the only people who would think that was justice are people who never met either of the boys. I have a picture of myself with the oldest boy when he was 1. Do you? I haven't forgotten them. Couldn't if I tried. They are buried five feet from my grandmother.

You are too old now to go through it, if your children are older than five.  But if you DID go through it, you would not know what you were doing until it was ... too late.  You, then, would be walking in her shoes.  Somehow, sad as it is, her suicide (IF that's it is, and I think it was) was her final solution.  In the throes of an illness so very VERY few ever endure, and to have killed your two most beloved creatures, your babies, bone of your bone, blood of your blood, those you shared a heartbeat with ... you come to, and find THAT out?  I'm not surprised that the first thing she did was kill herself.  My daughter was killed at 16, I had NOTHING to do with it, and was 5500 miles away at the moment it happened but I still lived with the GUILT for far too long.   If I can feel like that, and you would too, all parents do who lose children, just imagine how it must've felt to have realized what you'd done?!  I am not sure she could ever have recovered, to be honest.  Not in our society.

i have an overabundance of empathy for the victims in these type of crimes, i'm sorry but if her parents were available for the care they gave her, then i'm sure they were available back in 2004 when she brutally murdered her little babies..the youngest i believe was 2. Also post partum excuse is bullshit, within those 2 yrs of the youngest child's birth no one can tell me there weren't any signs she was crazy and she didn't serve much time at all .. from what i can read she was released after being convicted due to time served or something,

NOTE: i didn't realize you were the grammar police or that i was being graded...

It's still sad, I mean not just that the boys died by her hands & not that she suffered, but that she was found NOT GUILTY! It's all crazy in itself, wouldn't u agree?

Conace21

Your lowest grade is for accuracy. It would be helpful if you actually knew some of the facts before you start spitting your uninformed opinions.-The youngest boy was  four months old; there were signs that she was suffering from an illness, but nobody thought she would do something like this. -Her parents actually did take in her and the boys back in 2004; she killed the boys on the first day they left her alone with them.-Meghan was never convicted of anything. She was found not guilty by reason of insanity. She was released not due to time served, but because she was found NOT GUILTY.-She was deemed not to be a danger to herself or others at the time; it was four years after the deaths, and she spent most of those 4 years institutionalized, receiving treatment.

She was fund insane enough to kill her kids and also competent to be released?   That makes perfect sense.   The judge must be insane also, but not competent to be a judge.

Zachary Ibach
Zachary Ibach

Actually, since you know nothing, I'll just correct you like the child you are, the judge was a very conservative and well-respected judge, who was not known for being especially lenient.  What this case was, was one of the most clear-cut cases of true postpartum psychosis that has ever existed, which the judge, after reviewing the evidence, found to be a reason to declare a verdict of not guilty.  Maybe you should seriously study the nature of mental illness before you go mouthing off again, because you, again, know nothing.  She was found to be competent to be released because it was almost 4 years after the event.... 4 years in jails and mental facilities while awaiting trial... so yes, a lot can happen in 4 years, especially when the hormonal triggers that aggravated her innate bipolar tendencies no longer exist because she is no longer in a postpartum state.

Conace21
Conace21

She was suffering from acute psychosis as a result of postpartum depression when she killed her children in 2004. She spent most of the next four years institutionalized and receiving medical treatment for her illness. After she was found not guilty, psychiatrists examined her and found she posed no danger to others so she was released. Get your facts straight.

arlo

No danger to to HERSELF or others.. a conclusion which was obviously wrong, wasn't it? So what was she suffering from now? If she had any more kids, she probably would have taken them with her.

I'm a mom suffered from postpartum depression its not an excuse and I don't care how long she was institutionalized for if your deemed not competent to stand trial then she shouldn't have been released...and how about the danger to herself? I guess She "fooled" them right? Postpartum depression is serious and should be taken seriously!

What makes you think she recovered quickly?  She spent years in jails and institutions over that day.   Learn to get your facts straight before you mouth off.

Zachary Ibach

You do sound like a bitch, and an ignorant one, too, because you don't even have your facts straight.  She did try to kill herself, but got rescued.

Zachary Ibach
Zachary Ibach

She's way different from Casey Anthony, the first thing she did was try to kill herself, the 2nd was help the cops figure out what happened.  She didn't party or celebrate, she sat in a cell crying over what happened.  So yeah that's way different & pretty clear evidence of remorse.

Also she's in no way a psychopath, she had feelings and was a VERY sweet person.

Just rewards?  What concert are you even talking about?  The first time she was free since the day those kids died was about 4 years after the fact.  So yeah I think 4 years of dealing with it entitles you to a freaking concert.

Zachary Ibach
Zachary Ibach

She did do that, for a couple of years... she was living with her parents, almost isolated from society after she got out of jail, then she made friends & got a job and tried to live life...  she lost her job because someone recognized her and snitched, and then she lost her apartment because she had no job...  not guilty is not guilty, it's sickening that people have to enact their personal vengeance too...  if God exists, he'll take care of it, if he doesn't, we're just animals anyway...

thank you "NOMERCY" I agree how on earth did she get herself "all better" and since she was "all better" then why kill herself now? can't have it both ways...and still she seemed to not complete her mission the first time so she must not have been that crazy...or maybe crazy like a fox...i mean after all it was a mere few yrs later she was trying to "enjoy" her life .. going to concerts and whatnot...would anyone go to a concert and enjoy their lives this way after murdering their children?

NoMercy

kimbev69 - I'd stand beside you in public and shout it out too!! I agree anyone who hurts a chld in anyway has to be sick and twisted in one way or another. Obviously a normal person does not harm a child. But when people try to put lame ass medical excuses on the motive behind why they killed their child its BULLSHIT!! Obviously when you killed your children because you thought they were demons, your ass should have been locked away forever. Because your sick in the head and nothing can fix this. KARMA.. wish i would see more of these stories where the child murderes die and have justice served finally!

Conace21

The nerve of her, actually attempting to do something social with a family member, 3 YEARS after she was released.No, Myles and Silas deserved a life, continuing the next generation, to be a playmate for my niece Siobhan. I feel for them in a way you never could; you never met either one. I did. But that doesn't mean I blame Meghan just so I can have someone to blame. I recognize she was sick and I can't hold her responsible for it.

i'm a self righteous bitch? really..no she was .. sorry but she's the same as Casey Anthony...a murdering bitch and i have no empathy for baby killers..especially the ones that beat the system..sorry but if you are a family member then take it for what it was..or is or whatever..she was what she was...she killed her kids..that's the fact..she got her just rewards and KARMA bit her in the ass...she thought she could get over on everyone then proceed to "enjoy" life...going to concerts and shit???? who did she think she was...she got what was coming to her...those babies deserved a life..and if you feel that they didn't then keep coming at me .. i really don't care..my concern and EMPATHY is with The VICTIMS not the criminal!

You represent the best in our society.  The people you are responding to are the worst in our society.  No amount of explaining will help them understand because they are using your cousin's misfortune to feel better about themselves.  So, ultimately, what they say and think doesn't matter.  What matters is that you, and your other family members, understand.  It is in times of trouble that good character is shown, and you have it in spades.

You're a self-righteous little bitch, and you are probably bringing up your children to be the same.  Unable to have empathy for another human being is a serious character flaw.  I can only hope your children are able to escape your wicked influence.

In a nutshell, you couldn't be more wrong.Meghan was the sweetest of all my cousins. She was always a free spirit and I always looked forward to seeing her when I went down to PA when I was a kid. I never saw Meghan after she was released, but I know she was devastated by the guilt of what she had done.

Conace21
Conace21

No, she wasn't a dog. A human with an illness can be treated. It was the job of the judge and doctors to determine if Meghan represented a danger to society. They determined in 09 she did not.

Conace21
Conace21

Where was I? At college at the time. Where were her parents? Her father flew to England to collect the boys and bring them home to America. Meghan followed a few weeks later. My aunt and uncle stayed home with them every day for weeks until they thought it was safe. Tragically, they were wrong. And the postpartum psychosis had set in just after they youngest son was born.

Except that you are NOT entitled to express anything that even remotely smacks of hate speech towards a specifi population; in this case, the mentally ill.  Try shouting that crap out in a Courtroom and see how fast you supposedly 'entitlement' will get you --- right in  there with other criminals.  In your case, it would be a hate crime.  A self-centered, mental-midget to be true, but nonetheless, so filled with vitriol about a mental illness patient that you would dare say hate-filled things.  Hmmmm ... yes, I can see it now: IGNORANT WOMAN ARRESTED FOR HATE CRIME.  Identifying ignorance isn't a crime, it's an outright duty of all citizens.  And you, ARE full of HATE- you just use those babies as your excuse to say ugly things. You didn't even know their names or ages, you know NOTHING bout her, her babies, family, disease, nothing ... just another ignorant hater. Are you descended from KKK members or something?  Odd for you to take medical evidence and toss it back like it was nothing becaue it suits YOUR purpose - but if those same medical opinions were about YOU, or someone in your family - doubt you'd just dump them in the trash.  I'd call you silly but you hae too much hatred in you to be silly - you ae hate-filled.  Bet you even call yourself a Christian, too. Shame on you for distorting others views of that religion!  WWJD to YOU, I wonder?  Certainly not be giving you any shiny crowns in Heaven with your attitude!

She did attempt suicide by swallowing painkillers, but was revived at the hospital. And I'm spending so much energy on her because she was my cousin, and I am so glad my aunt and uncle aren't reading these cruel comments. I think the better comment is why are you spending so much energy attacking her, and weeping over two kids you never met. I met Myles once, when he was 1; I was extremely shocked and saddened when he was killed in 2004, but I never held it against Meghan.

Psychosis isn't an excuse.  It's a very real medical fact.  The patient cannot tell reality from fantasy.  Hearing voice, having visual hallucinations, smelling things that are not there, seeing people not there, or worse, scary things, like demons.  Thinking your kids are demon-possessed is NOT normal, noting she did was sane!  Unless you think killing your own babies is sane.  If so, get help quick! If not, get an education, super quick! Moralistic, uncaring, insensitive, blanket stereotyping is so horrible; hate to see you in ANY situtaion facing public condemnation for a disease you cannot control, without alot of good help, which she got but .... you cannot doctor away guilt. 

Terry Reed
Terry Reed

Well, which is it, woman?  Take it seriously, as in the woman's case where the psychosis was SO bad she killed her kids, then herself later (likely due to guilt) or like in your case, not so serious that you luckily did not get psychosis?  The disorder runs the gamut, and what happened to YOU is usual, and most of us go through it.  What happened to her, and so few like her, also happens.  Don't act like you don't understand.  And don't even pretend you give a flying flip about her dead at the bottom of that canyon.

 You don't kill your children because you have postpartum depression.  You kill them because you have postpartum psychosis.  It's not the same, and it's much, much worse.  The questionnaire isn't there to make you feel like a monster, it's there to accurately figure out your exact symptoms in order to prevent terrible outcomes.  Everything feels like a judgment when you're suffering from clinical depression; but it's the change in your thought process causing that.

What I meant is, that even though lots of people suffer from postpartum depression, there are varying degrees of it. Some cases are more intense than others.Some people suffer from depression and live with it, some go to therapy and take medication, some people kill themselves.

And there's no lumping. Meghan is now, seemingly, one of those people who committed suicide? Why? Because of thoughtless ignorant people like you who harassed her and helped make it impossible for her to regain her life. I just hope you never have to go through something like this with someone you know. I wouldn't wish that even on a heartless ignoramus like you.

Oh my god, that poor Woman. Conace, it sounds like you knew her and I'm so, so sorry for your loss. Everything she went through sounds so awful. Do you people really think she CHOSE to suffer from such a severe psychosis? Can you imagine coming back to sanity and having to live with what happened- what you had done? Absolutely tragic.

Guest

one of the main reasons in my opinion is people are too young to realize things will get better some day sorry she can't use these kind of excuses..a dear friend of my son's committed suicide..we believe he truly thought his mom was going to be back quickly, but she lingered at the store...i think of that boy all the time..don't lump some child killing bitch in with people that committ suicide..

Conace21

Same reason millions of people suffer from depression, but only a small percentage commit suicide.

Who cared about her? I'm guessing her parents, sisters, cousins, etc...Nobody had the right to treat her like shit. All it did was drive her to Arizona. And who's grieving now? Those same family members. The same ones who actually knew her children. You talk shit in defense of two kids you never even knew! Her family must have faced such incredible hell back in 2004, and now they have to relive it. I hope they don't come on hear to see the ignorant statements made by people like you.

Your last statement is laughable. Meghan must have lived in incredible guilt every day of her life, but she was a free woman; she had every right to try and rebuild her life. What does that mean? Rebuilding friendships, relationships, going to social events. What should she have done? Stay at home every night letting the guilt torment her?

Guest

people like her using PPD as an excuse to murder children is the reason alot of women don't tell their doctors they are depressed, especially now in my state they can ask you that question and give you a long questionnaire to fill out regarding your mental state...as required by law..making you feel like a monster for being depressed

no danger to "herself" who the fuck cares about her...i'm so glad that people who do love children made her feel like shit while she was alive, i would call that Karma and if i knew the name of the band that wouldn't play with her in the audience i would send them a big bouquet of flowers for standing up for babies everywhere...how dare she attend a concert after she brutally killed 2 helpless children

She WAS deemed competent enough to stand trial, hence the not guilty verdict. she was deemed no danger to herself at the time of her release. Since then, she underwent therapy, but was ostracized in her hometown. Her workplace was vandalized with "Baby killer" spray painted on the wall, and at a concert she attended, the performer realized she was in the audience and announced he wouldn't play unless she left. That, plus the guilt of what she had done, living with that...  made it impossible for her to live with herself apparently.Yeah, she really fooled them all right.
