– Mother Tells Police She Locked Kids In Closet

– Two Found Dead Ten Hours Later

A young mother from Ethiopia tells police she kept her five children in a bedroom closet for more than ten hours before finding two of them dead. A bed pushed against the door kept the five from escaping.

28-year-old Ebyan Farah, held on preliminary charges of neglect, tells interrogators she was “not in her right mind.”

Farah admits finding 5-year-old Zuhur Farah and her 3-year-old brother, Zakariya, dead when she opened the door late Sunday afternoon. She told investigators she placed the bodies on a couch downstairs.

When a family member came to the apartment and saw what had happened, he tried to call 911 but Farah grabbed the phone away from him.

It might be as much as three weeks before the Marion County Coroner’s office reaches a conclusion about the cause of death. A spokeswoman says the office is awating results of a toxicology test.
