Suzanna Simpson: Two consecutive life sentences for killing her two young children and attempting to kill her husband

A jury found Suzanna Simpson, 38,  guilty of the shooting deaths of her two young children Thursday along with the attempted murder of her husband.
Circuit Judge Brian Gibbons immediately handed down the harshest sentence he could, saying Simpson deserved it. In passing the sentence Gibbons said:
“I cannot imagine a worse scenario than what I’ve heard here this week,” Gibbons said.
In court, an emotional Mike Simpson who is suffering almost total short-term memory loss from injuries sustained in the murder attempt  cried as his wife was sentenced to life in prison for killing their children in their South Carolina home. Suzanna Simpson killed  the children, shooting 7-year-old daughter Carly and 5-year-old Sawyer in the head, while they slept.  He has one of the bullets fired still in his skull which has led to the memory loss.
All through the proceedings, Mike Simpson, in a wheelchair dabbed away tears as his mother Allison Simpson, told the judge he was an amazing fighter, who survived not just  the  gunshot to his head, but the unimaginable grief of losing his kids and having his life stolen from him. “His whole family has been taken away from him,” she said.

Suzanna Simpson who told a psychiatrist she thought the whole family would be reincarnated in a better world has had a lifelong batlle with bi-polar disorder. She had spent spent six days in the hospital for severe mental illness a  year before the murders and her doctor urged her husband to lock his guns in a safe.
One year later, the guns were in the safe, when she woke up at 4 a.m., put on a headband with a small light, opened the combination on the gun safe and ambushed her husband Mike,  daughter Carly and son Sawyer as they slept. The safe had been opened and five or six guns were laying on the floor, along with an assortment of ammunition, when the deputy arrived to find the bodies.
She later claimed that she tried to kill herself too but loaded the wrong ammunition in the gun.

The South Carolina mom showed little emotion at the sentencing, mouthing “bye” to her family as she walked out of court. Psychiatrists said she is on medication to treat bipolar disorder and other conditions.
Her lawyer, John Mauldin, said in his closing statement that society must start doing better with its most vulnerable people.
“We’ve got to stop turning our back on mental illness,” Mauldin said. “We’ve got to start somewhere.”

The prosecutors said there are clues that show that while she was mentally ill, she knew what she was doing. She wore the headlamp and loaded the gun in the laundry room to not wake anyone up. She shot her husband first so he couldn’t save the kids. After loading the gun right fto kill her family , she managed to put in the wrong ammunition when it was time to kill herself.
“She might not have been able to control herself,” prosecutor Betty Strom said. “But she knew what she was doing was wrong.”

Strom pointed out people with mental illness can still hold jobs and raise a family, Simpson herself had worked at a bank for years, the kids were well taken care of as their school reported.
Simpson was first was diagnosed with depression in college, and her mental illness seemed to worsen after having children. Psychiatrist Jeff Smith who started treating her in 2010, saw her 34 times in three years. The last time was in February 2013, when he said she appeared in great shape and scheduled a follow up in four months. The killings happened three months later.
“In my 26 years of practice, I have never had anything surprise me as much as this case did,” Smith said.
The authorities are trying to figure out a moyive for the killings. Prosecutors pointed out that she told family members her husband has said “it was over” because she couldn’t properly take care of her children. Her lawyer said Simpson was hearing voices, so no explanation is going to make sense.
There was mild drama for the jurors when less than two hours into their deliberations, the jury asked the judge to explain the difference between guilty and guilty but mentally ill, causing the judge to read his charge again.
Although the case qualifies for the death penalty, the state did not seek capital punishment. The jury found her, guilty of the shooting deaths of her two children and the attempted murder of her husband.
Defense attorney Maudlin immediately asked the judge to throw out the verdict since the jury showed apparently did not account for the fact that his client was mentally ill. All four psychiatrist who testified said she suffered from serious illnesses that require medication. Gibbons refused.



1 Comment on Suzanna Simpson, Mom who murdered her two young kids in their sleep hoping they’d get reincarnated in a better world bags life sentence

  1. Was just reading some info about certain gene mutations in indivicuals that causes them to be unable to process certain medications/psychotropic drugs and can cause them to have suicidal or homicidal tendencies.
    Using Antidepressants May Send You into a Murderous Rage
    Taking antidepressants and antipsychotics may make you severely violent and even homicidal.
    It’s sad how much the media and everyone else harps on guns…. but NO ONE is talking about the REAL issue in mass murder/suicide cases… psychotropic drugs. How many innocent lives need to be lost before we stop letting big pharma, media and special interests run our view point and our lives?

    The following info was taken from…

    Open letter to the NRA & Gun Owners of America

    Does anyone wonder why these mass shootings are occurring in these last decades, usually perpetrated by young men? And the suicides! Have you noticed that suicides have become an epidemic in soldiers, adults in general and even children as young as seven?


    The answer lies in a field of medicine called pharmacogenomics.

    In the last decades the pharmaceutical companies have produced medications called SSRIs. (Selective Seratonin Uptake Inhibitors). The pharmaceutical producers have been forced to put a black box warning on the label warning that these drugs may cause “suicidal ideations”. Suicide is a label for those who blame themselves. Homicide is a label for those who blame “others”. However, the establishment does not put homicidal warnings on the label so as not to wake up the society to the ever present danger to “others” in the society.

    These modern drugs are metabolized in the body by a certain group of liver enzymes. These liver enzymes are part of the natural human, animal and plant mechanism. Its purpose is to naturally get rid of toxins. But some people, by genetic variation, (10% of Caucasians for example) don’t have the activity of these enzymes and cannot rid the body of these pharmaceuticals. The accumulation of these drugs in the physiology compels the person to suicide and homicide.

    The major detox channel in, pharmacogenetics, is called CYTOCHROME P450 2D6.

    10% of Caucasians, for example, DO NOT HAVE the activity of this mechanism to detox the medication out of their body.

    This group is called NON-METABOLIZERS. There are also “poor metabolizers”, normal metabolizers and rapid metabolizers. The variability of metabolism is a big concern for the pharmacologists because of suicidal and homicidal ideations in the non and poor metabolizing groups. See Dr. Lucire’s Australian study

    The pharmaceutical companies have kept this secret of drug interaction and drug metabolism for over 15 years while they attempt to create drugs that would circumvent Cytochrome P450 2D6. The industry would stand to lose billions of dollars if the public knew that 10% of the Caucasian population and various percentages of Asian, Hispanics and African Americans cannot metabolize these modern drugs.

    Although this knowledge is all over the Internet (see: Cytochrome P450 + drug interactions), the pharmaceutical industry and the medical cabal have even gone so far as to suppress education in the medical schools, so that physicians who write these prescriptions don’t know what they are actually doing. They are not being educated either in medical school or continuing education about pharmacogenetics.

    Although there is a simple and inexpensive test for Cytochrome P450 it is not standard of care to do this test. 25% of American children are on prescription drugs; we have mass school shooting by young men who are no more than children themselves. And yet patients are not being tested for their ability to successfully metabolize these psyche drugs that are being foisted on them by every level of physicians – pediatricians, general practitioners, psychiatrists, etc., despite the fact that there is an epidemic of suicides and “heinous” homicides, every year since the introduction of these pharmaceuticals.

    When the person has no way to detox the drugs out of the body, these chemicals accumulate and cause “heinous” (emphasis added) homicidal ideations and suicidal ideations. Apparently, these ideations occur very often (as you can hear the warnings on many TV drug commercials). However, these ideations become very intense to the point of “action” when the person abruptly stops taking their medications. The intense drive to commit suicide or homicide last about 4 days on average.

    We have done our best to contact judges and attorneys of high profile cases to urge them to do the pharmacogenetic testing…but no response. Why have we failed? Think about what this means not only to the physicians and pharmaceutical industry, but to law enforcement, to the prison system, in terms of revisiting legal cases and claiming “involuntary intoxication”.

    To expose this it needs a powerful wave, such as that which can come from the NRA, gun owners and gun advocates. This exposure will shift the narrative that the cause of these mass shootings and suicides is “the gun”, to “we are letting the pharmacuetical companies get away with murder”.

    The reality of the situation is not the “gun”. It is that kids, adults and soldiers are committing homicide and suicide because they cannot metabolize the medication. Mass shootings and suicides are the of effect of the uneducated proliferation of common psyche drugs (such as Ritalin, Adderall, Respiradal, Haldol, Lexpro, Concerta, Paxil, Prozac, Wellbutin) by doctors on the non and poor metabolizers.

    The first link herein and below “What is making our kids and soldiers psychotic” is our attempt to explain, in layman’s terms, what cytochrome P450 is:

    The problem first starts with the excipients in the early childhood vaccines such as phenol, formaldehyde, ethanol…all of which need cytochrome P450 to metabolize. Limited infant studies have proven that cytochrome P450 in not “matured” in infants and therefore these infants cannot metabolize these ingredients out of their little bodies. In essence, we are allowing the medical cabal to poison our children at birth then misdiagnose them as neurologically damaged and mentally ill. With this misdiagnosis, these children are then given the very drugs that at least 10% of Caucasians, for example, can’t metabolize, compelling them to suicide and homicide. The normal metabolizers are still damaged to some extent by the vaccines and the psyche drugs but not to the point of actually committing homicide. Homicide and suicide is reserved for 10% of the Caucasian population and varying percentages of Asian, Hispanic and Black.

    What we advise you to do is to contact your State University Pharmacogeneticist who can give you a solid understanding of the mass shooting phenomena as it relates to metabolism. With professional input we can then move the conversation away from gun control or simply the sound bite “the shooter is mentally ill” to “involuntary intoxication” at the hands of uneducated physicians who give these drugs out like candy without first doing the Cytochrome P450 test for vaccines or psyche drugs. Be warned, however, to vet the pharmacogeneticist as some physicians and researchers may be afraid to speak up having inside pressure not to rock the boat from the medical cabal.

    We have many people in prison for homicide. Many were on and continue to be on mental illness psyche drugs. Yet, there has been no, epidemiological study in the prison population to test the Cytochrome P450 genetics to see if there is a correlation with homicides. That would be an easy study to do. Why isn’t HHS granting pharmacogeneticist this opportunity to ascertain the cause of these homicides?

    NRA Far sight: The longer term problem that the NRA has, if you don’t deal powerfully with this in the media, even faced with pharmacuetical sponsors, is that if the above situation is not exposed, we continue to disable each and every successive generation of humanity. As background checks become more transparent to more government agencies, the consequence of a failure to expose this now is there will be very few people in the future, by and by, who will be able to get gun permits. The majority of the people will have psyche drugs in their health records. WARNING: if you agree with the concept that the establishment is promoting… that is…”lets just keep guns away from the mentally ill”, you will ultimately find that this is the covert, back door, long-term strategy that as it increases in momentum, will eventually result in the success of the establishment’s gun control objectives. If you wait to deal with the real cause of these heinous mass shootings, it will be too far gone for you to stop public perception that the solution is restrict gun permits to the mentally ill or those who are on or have been on psyche medication.

    The Elephant in the Room

    It is to be noted that there were 110 vaccine bills in state legislatures this year to mandate children’ vaccine and compulsory Adult vaccines. There will be a tsunami of vaccine bills next year as well. California passed SB 277 and SB 792. SB 277 is now law having been signed by Gov. Brown. It states that no child can get a public, private or preschool education in California without being fully vaccinated (49 vaccine doses with these excipents by the age of six and as early as one hour old). SB 792 is a first in the nation bill as well. It gives a government the right to compel adult vaccinations. It is a precedent setting bill for forced medical treatments of all kinds…long lasting psyche drug “implants for those diagnosed or misdiagnosed with mental illness, forced chemotherapy (which has been the ruling of some courts) and lobotomies, for example.
