Things deteriorated over time and the parents continued to withhold her medications. Her parents were told by their church to pray over her and everything would be ok.
She lost her tenuous grip on reality and became unstable. She attacked her family while doing battle with a series of hallucinations that were telling her awful things about her parents and sisters. Her father kept trying to defend his youngest child while trying to settle the eldest and he sustained serious injuries. The eldest followed him when he ran from the house to get help and she caught him from behind and stabbed him multiple times in the neck.
He died on the front lawn. The girl was taken down by tasers when the police arrived — they were called by neighbours who heard the commotion — and she was sent to a high security facility where she still is now.
She was very obviously not in control of herself at the time so she avoided criminal charges and the mother moved away from the area. I feel for the mother most; she essentially lost her whole family. The youngest and her husband had been killed and the middle child moved away eventually too, changing her surname when she got married and chose to disconnect from her mother.

What I witnessed that night and the following day really changed my perspective on a lot. The Snowtown, Australia Murders. But they used the wrong type of acid Not strong enough and people complained of a foul smell, so the police investigated and found semi-liquified remains in barrels. BTK dumped one of his victims in a ditch a mile away from my house before I was born, the Carr Brothers murdered a group of 5 people in the soccer field miles from my home 6th one survived because she wore a metal hair clip that caused the bullet to ricochet away from her head, A man molested small children on the same street, the old lady that hated us kids ended up murdered by her own son my mom was the one to find her since she started to smell the decomposing body and a family member asked her if she was willing to go in for her.
Tons of crimes that never were recorded, gunshots going off in the dead of night, a scream that suddenly got cut short, we were just told to lay on the floor while my father paced the house with a shotgun until he felt it was safe.
