One of the major issues here is the horrific overmedication of drugs that caused homicidal ideation, suicidal ideation,’ a lawyer tells Boston Globe.

A mother who strangled her three children to death suffered a psychotic breakdown as a result of a cocktail of psychotropic drugs, her lawyer is arguing.
According to defense attorney Kevin J. Reddington, Massachusetts mother of three Lindsay Clancy, 32, was experiencing an SSRI drug-induced psychosis from a “horrific overmedication” that caused her to act on suicidal and homicidal thoughts when she killed her children.
“We’ve got a person who suffered grievously as a result of what possibly could be postpartum depression, postpartum psychosis,” the attorney told a Plymouth District Court.
The lawyer added his client was taking numerous prescription meds for “mood disorder, anxiety and psychosis.”

“One of the major issues here is the horrific overmedication of drugs that caused homicidal ideation, suicidal ideation,” Reddington told the Boston Globe.
The lawyer said Clancy and her husband “went to doctors repeatedly saying ‘Please help us.’ This was turning her into a zombie …the medications that were prescribed were over the top, absolutely over the top.”
“She had medical care and treatment on a regular basis. And her husband was very proactive in trying to protect her and help her with the doctors’ medication she was prescribed,” he told the Globe. “They went through hell — and they didn’t come back.”
Reddington told The Globe the mother accused of murder, strangulation, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon was on at least 13 psychiatric and antidepressant medications, including:
“zolpidem, sold under the brand name Ambien; clonazepam, sold under the brand name Klonopin; diazepam, sold under the brand name Valium; fluoxetine, sold under the brand name Prozac; lamotrigine, sold under the brand name Lamictil; lorazepam, sold under the brand name Ativan; mirtazapine, sold under the brand name Remeron; quetiapine fumarate, sold under the brand name Seroquel; sertaline, sold under the brand name Zoloft, along with trazodone, hydroxyzine, amitriptyline and buspirone, he said.“
More on Clancy’s alleged Jan. 24, 2023, crimes from The Globe:
Prosecutors allege that while Patrick Clancy was out of the house, Lindsay Clancy strangled her three children before she injured herself and jumped out a second-floor window, falling 20 feet to the backyard.
Reddington appeared to be readying a defense of pleading not guilty due to insanity, telling the Globe, “a person whom experts conclude was overmedicated at the time of a crime can still invoke a defense of not guilty by reason of insanity.”
“The black-letter law definition of lack of criminal responsibility in Massachusetts says that if a person suffers from a mental disease or defect” that makes it impossible for them to conform their behavior to legal norms, they can be found not guilty of a crime due to their disturbed mental status, Reddington said.
We’ll see if the defense attorney’s attempts to turn the tables on Big Pharma end up saving his client from being jailed for actions that very well may have been out of her control.
