Husband of Woman Accused of Killing Kids Issues Statement on Forgiveness
A statement has been issued by the husband of the woman accused of killing her children, asking for forgiveness.
NBC Boston reported on the statement over the weekend.
Lindsay Clancy, a 32-year-old employee at Massachusetts General Hospital, is currently facing several charges related to the death of her children, 5-year-old Cora Clancy, 3-year-old Dawson Clancy, and 8-month-old Callan Clancy, as the outlet noted.
Patrick Clancy, Lindsay’s husband and the father of the kids, broke his silence on Saturday.
“I want to ask all of you that you find it deep within yourselves to forgive Lindsay, as I have,” Patrick Clancy said in the statement.
He added, “The real Lindsay was generously loving and caring towards everyone — me, our kids, family, friends, and her patients. The very fibers of her soul are loving. All I wish for her now is that she can somehow find peace.”
Patrick Clancy shared his view of their marriage.
“Our marriage was wonderful and diametrically grew stronger as her condition rapidly worsened. I took as much pride in being her husband as I did in being a father and felt persistently lucky to have her in my life,” he wrote.
The statement continues, “I still remember the very moment I first laid eyes on her and can recall how overcome I was with the kind of love at first sight you only see in movies. It really didn’t take long before I was certain I wanted to marry her.”
According to Patrick Clancy, they “mutually understood the reality that people can have bad days, but we stuck to the rule that when one of us got lost, the other was always there to bring them home, always. She loved being a nurse, but nothing matched her intense love for our kids and dedication to being a mother. It was all she ever wanted. Her passion taught me how to be a better father.”

Concluding the statement, Patrick Clancy shared a message to his children.
“Cora, Dawson, and Callan, you gave me so much in your short time here. I don’t know if the pain will ever go away, but I’ll do my best to carry on in your honor. Dada loves you so much and will always remember you,” he said.
NBC News noted an arrest warrant was issued for Lindsay Clancy on Wednesday for two counts of homicide, three counts of strangulation, and three counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
A spokesperson for the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office told the outlet over the weekend no charges have been filed following the infant’s death and Lindsay Clancy remains in the hospital.
The two older children were pronounced dead after reportedly being brought to the hospital while the infant was flown to a hospital before dying from his injuries last week.
