8-month-old involved in Duxbury tragedy dies, district attorney says

DUXBURY, Mass. (WLNE) — The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office said an 8-month-old boy who was seriously injured by his mother has died.

The death of the 8-month-old boy followed the deaths of his two siblings earlier this week in Duxbury.

Lindsay Clancy, 32, is accused of killing her 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son in their home on Summer Street Tuesday night.

Her 8-month-old son, Callan, was flown to a Boston area hospital for serious injuries that night before passing away Friday.

“At approximately 12:30 p.m. (Friday), the State Office of the Chief Medical Examiner contacted Massachusetts State Police assigned to our office to report that at 11:18 a.m. today (Friday), the third Clancy child was pronounced deceased at Children’s Hospital in Boston,” said a spokesperson for the District Attorney’s Office on Friday.

Police said they received a call just after 6 p.m. Tuesday from a man who said a woman attempted suicide by jumping from a window in a Summer Street home.

The woman, identified as Lindsay Clancy, was taken to the hospital for treatment.

In a press conference, Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said the three children were found in the basement of the home.

Police said the children were unconscious and showed obvious signs of trauma. Two of the children were pronounced dead Tuesday night.

According to officials, a preliminary investigation show that the Clancy strangled her three children.
