60 minutes - Carol Matthey, do you think she killed her 4 babies?

Answered 18 days ago

I started out thinking she was innocent, and I dont rate 60 minutes too highly, (they can be very biased), but part way through I got a gut feeling she had done it. It was all her, what she said, how she said it, what she didnt say, her emotions, her tears started to seem fake/put on etc.

Have an answer?

Her nonverbal communications gives it away. She killed them. She lies frequently. Get a body language expert. Try a polygraph. So sad. It's so obvious. The shrugs, the nodding.

These cases are very complex. Often there is a history of child abuse (among the victltims but also the perpetrator, who may have been acting out her or his own earlier abuse). The trauma of child abuse creates dissociation, i.e. multiple personalities (alter egos). This woman may have done it, and yet in front of TV cameras she has no conscious recollection of the acts. As always, crucial facts have been withheld from us.

The fourth death, 3.5 year old Shania . I just can't get past that that could be ruled as SIDS.
The third unlucky little guy who was given the sleep apnia machine, if you'd lost two already you would have that machine on. And if as she says it was faulty surely you'd just have it replaced.
Every time she was asked if she murdered each of them she looked up to the left. I just kept thinking your a cold blooded serial baby killer.
The fact she has resurfaced all these years later revelling in the attention again and doesn't care if it's good or bad. I absolutely think she was killing her babies for attention and enjoys looking at their pictures as though they are trophies of what she has gotten away with.
I hope her only surviving child has gotten away from her and is living a good Life.

Carol's face seen so hard and cold-blooded and no emotion towards the children. Pictures that Carol displayed of children were those four pictures, almost as a trophy she kept with no fancy frames, almost like she use them to meditate on her guilt One picture shown of one of her babies in a cooking pot. Maybe she thought that would be a good idea to cook him in. Not many other photos she displayed of them, as some parents have tons of photos or items to display in one way or another. Never brought out something special in each child she would recall. She had nothing to comment on the children. Is this not the cold-blooded killer? When she was leaving the courthouse, she had a smirk on her face, almost like saying, 'fools I got away with it!' No emotion as a grieving mother, only a face-harden like a rock, all for self. The children were different ages and how can you lose four children with no evidence in this day and age. Were the children's eyes or teeth checked for signs of suffocating or fingernails had any evidence of some tissue as they grab on to something when being suffocated if possible if the death was this way? If I am not mistaken, the teeth of the children would show some signs or separating teeth, something like that I recalled in some medical information I read. One thing I do know, her sin will find her out by God. I do not care whether she believes this or not, the Lord will make it known to her sooner or later!

Being a Canadian that just watched this episode, and a trained Clinical Psychiatrist, I have no doubt of her guilt. She did a lot of sniffling, but not once shed a REAL tear! Her body language told more than her mouth. She was more affected about the possibility of being jailed than for the deaths of her children. She said "we all grieve in different ways", which is probably the only true statement she made throughout. However, this woman is not grieving, but rather, showing more indicators of rejoicing her menacing actions. Under Australian law, does anyone know if, new evidence is uncovered in the future, can she ever be retried? This is a huge miscarriage of justice for these poor children. Where is her husband now? Hopefully not still with her certainly?

She made my skin crawl.
She was much more emotional when talking about potentially going to prison than she was at all when speaking about her children's deaths.
The fire too? How are you the only adult in a home and have literally no explanation for a set fire, it's confirmed to be deliberately lit, not electrical.. sooo?????
Besides that, her entire family believe she is guilty.
If I lost 4 children to a mystery I'd either just neck myself, be in an institution or fully campaign to find the reason why, I'd be raising money to fly to medical conferences and beg experts for an explanation.
I just 100% don't believe her at all. Not an ounce.

I'm not usually this judgemental, but I had that same gut instinct that she was guilty. Come on. 4 children??? To lose one would have been enough for me to guard any more children. Night and day. I wouldn't be able to sleep. If I lost that many children I would be living my life in a psychiatric ward, I just wouldn't be able to function, let alone sit through a documentary.

ANSWER

If I had to go on that programme alone then I 100% she did it and I'll see the good in anyone and believe them wholeheartedly, but even I think she's talking BS.

There's Carole shows next to no remorse when talking about her children and as others have said she seemed more upset at the prospect of going to jail.

Then the arrogant look on her face as she left court spoke volumes. That was not the look of relief, it's just being smug.

She also seemed emotionally detached from reality when looking at all the kids pictures she's all smiles. Even in the programme she has slightly wet eyes. At no point does she break down and she doesn't seem to care whether people think she is guilty.

Then she had a machine to check the child's breathing in which she didn't use because ' it would beep all the time' so it was faulty, right? Not being funny but if two of my children had passed away I'd be making damn sure that the one piece of equipment given, that may prevent this from happening again (or anything like it) was on wherever possible and if it was faulty that it be replaced immediately.

Then there's the fire which I honestly think she started with the intention of killing them all but for whatever reason decided against it...maybe she realised it would come back on her. It could work in her favour I guess if anyone ver accused her of all of the four, in that she had the perfect chance to kill them all when the fire broke out.

Such a shame you can't convict on assumption alone. Sorry I kinda got into this a bit too much xD

ANSWER

She suffocated them. My heart broke when they said the triple 000 operator could hear her three yr old whimpering whilst being suffocated.
The perfect crime because no evidence. A rational mind would be able to follow the argument that suffocation produces no evidence and that is the evidence, the absence of it.

REPLY

Usually suffocation does leave evidence that the forensic pathologist discovers. So it is very odd that with the 3 year old, nothing was found. But my impression was she did not behave as someone who had lost children. Its the most devastating experience any parent can go through. I would be completely destroyed if it had been me.

ANSWER

I think she did it. Her tears did not seem real and she just looked guilty throughout this episode. Maybe she was just uncomfortable if I have to give her the benefit of the doubt? But my gut says she did it. And the whole fire incident does not add up.

REPLY

I don't know. I just really got the feeling she was lying and being fake. There was just something that didnt seem quite right that i cant put my finger on. She claimed SIDS for 3 of them and the 3.5 year old apparently fell offca table, hit her head, ambos came, she was ok, next morning found dead. Honestly it wasnt the story, or really what dhe said, it was how she said it, her emotions, just didnt quite match right.
