DUXBURY, MASSACHUSETTS: Duxbury is still not in shock over the tragic incident of a mother, Lindsay Clancy, who allegedly killed her own children. In memory of the three children who were killed by their own mothers and another child who died of sudden illness, Duxbury has now installed four lights in the name of ‘4 Angels Memorial’.
Many rushed to the vigil to pay their respects to the young souls who left in early January. The lights were shown at Duxbury on March 2, 2023. Clancy’s tragic murder-suicide attempt resulted in the deaths of Cora, 5, Dawson, 3, and Callan, 8 months. However, the fourth child, 6-year-old Laney Ladd, who has no connection to the murders, died of a sudden illness. Clancy was charged with two counts of murder, three counts of strangulation and three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

There are three white lights for the Clancy children and purple ones for Ladd, which is her favorite color. The lights were turned on by Patrick Clancy’s parents, along with Jeff and Erin Ladd. Tim Heinstadt, who is the church’s maintenance sponsor, said, “I think everyone everyone gets what they want out of it, but it’s interesting,” he said. “You go there, and even at 10 at night I go there some nights, and people are just sitting in their car watching it,” according to Boston.com.
