Lindsay Clancy, Duxbury mother accused of murdering her kids, moved to Tewksbury Hospital

TEWKSBURY, Mass. — Lindsay Clancy, the Duxbury mother accused of murdering her three young children in their family’s home before attempting to take her own life, has been transferred to Tewksbury Hospital.

Doctors believe that Clancy, 32, needs extended mental health care, her attorney, Kevin Reddington, confirmed to Boston 25 News. She had been at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

On Jan. 24, 2023, prosecutors say Clancy used exercise bands to strangle her kids: Her 5-year-old daughter, Cora, her 3-year-old son, Dawson, and her 8-month-old baby, Callan.

After the alleged murders, Clancy tried to kill herself by jumping out of a second-story window, according to prosecutors. Reddington later said that his client suffered serious spinal injuries that left her paralyzed.

Lindsay’s husband, Patrick Clancy, returned home from picking up food to find his wife on the ground in their backyard. He then began “screaming in shock and agony” when he went inside and found his lifeless kids on their basement floor. The elder children were pronounced dead that day and the infant died days later.

Lindsay was arrested on charges of murder, strangulation or suffocation, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. During her arraignment in February, she was seen laying motionless in a hospital bed, wearing a mask and a neck brace.

Reddington said Lindsay had been fighting mental health issues, postpartum depression or psychosis, and had been overmedicated as she sought treatment.

Prosecutors have argued that Lindsay should be jailed as she awaits trial.
