Attempts to revive the boys were not successful.
“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,” Avondale police said. “Mireya also stated to investigators that she also attempted to drown another child in the home, but she was stopped by family and this child did not suffer any injuries.”
Court records said Lopez told investigators that she took medication for depression, schizophrenia and psychosis. She also said she killed her kids because she didn't want them to grow up with the same difficulties she's had, the Arizona Republic reported.
