Durham police confirmed Friday the body of a woman and her baby found in the trunk of a car near Sunderland, Ont., in March was a case of murder-suicide.
Andrea Damude and her 8-month-old baby, Brock, were discovered in the trunk of an abandoned white vehicle on a Saturday afternoon.
“Investigators believe this incident to be a tragic event with the mother willingly entering the trunk of the vehicle with the child,” Durham police said on Friday.
Months before the incident, Damude had expressed her frustrations online about sleepless nights she had while her baby stayed awake.
“Pissed, frustrated, soooo upset . . . need a break . . . losing it,” she wrote one morning on Facebook.
“I love my baby boy . . . but I really need a break from these 4 a.m. mornings.”
