Like so many other mothers in the U.S., news about Yoselyn Ortega, the nanny accused of killing little Lucia (Lulu) and Leo Krim, left me cold. But from the moment that I found out about this vicious murder, I've been obsessed with the story. I'm not sure why, but I think it might be the fact that I myself am actually in the process of looking for a nanny for my kids and what happened with the Krim kids has me pretty terrified--especially after the latest details in the ongoing investigation were revealed.

Accordint to RadarOnline.com, a source close to the investigation has revealed that Ortega and her employer--and mom to the murdered children--Marina Krim had a vicious fight a day before the killings and that supposedly Krim didn't even say good-bye to her nanny that night before the murders as Ortega was heading home.

It seems like this extremely angered Ortega. It's also been revealed that this fight was not the first between the women, since Ortega didn't agree with the way the Krims were raising their kids. Accordint to the nanny, Krim wasn't interacting enough with her kids and she was giving them too much junk food. What?!

It's pretty clear that Ortega has some sort of mental issue because, what does one thing have to do with the other? And what's more, if she was so worried about the well-being of the kids and she didn't like the way they were being raised by their parents, why MURDER them so viciously? I'm sorry, but none of this makes any sense!

More details have to come about in order to understand the true motive behind this senseless tragedy. To me, it sounds like the trouble was between Ortega and mom Marina Krim--and murdering the kids was the best way the nanny could get back with her hated employer.

please correct the story. It was the mother marina who was concerned that the nanny was giving them too much junk food and not interacting with the children enough. Not the other way around.

The motive behind the murders? Who can say whether it was a wish for cruel revenge or a desire to destroy her own life? The only certainty is that Ortega was possessed by evil. The more society and popular culture tries to deny the existance evil, the more we see real evidence of it. Ortega's actions were not those of a human being. I leave it up to others to forgive her for her actions, I am unable to do so.
