An Idaho lady who drove her game utility vehicle off a precipice and into a store, killing herself and her three youthful youngsters, acted purposely, authorities said Friday.
Noel Bankhead, a 40-year-old mother of three, drove a Land Rover holding her two little girls and child off a 50-foot bluff on June, 2, 2016. The vehicle sank in 40 feet of water in Lucky Peak Lake. The passings were ruled a triple manslaughter suicide by the Ada County Coroner’s Office, specialists said in an announcement.
Specialists found the collections of Bankhead, 13-year-old Anika Voermans, 11-year-old Logan Voermans and 8-year-old Gwyneth Voermans when the vehicle, whose rooftop was pounded, was recouped from the supply.
Witnesses said Bankhead was driving on a state roadway when she veered off it, situating her auto to dispatch off the bluff. She at that point quickened all of a sudden, witnesses told authorities.
Nothing was mechanically amiss with the vehicle, however authorities were not able recoup data including rate, increasing speed and braking information.
The sheriff’s office rather depended on witness proclamations, and the nonattendance of slide imprints to establish that Bankhead deliberately drove of the precipice, murdering herself and her kids.
Toxicology tests found no medicine or liquor in Bankhead’s framework.
She experienced a separation around two years previously the crash, and was recognized as an energetic sprinter and all day working guardian who had been a paralegal and lawful secretary for over twenty years.
