Mother Brittany Pilkington revealed that she killed her three sons so that she could make sure her daughter got more attention from dad. She didn’t do it all at once though. Instead, over the last year she killed each one of them one at a time.
She actually killed two sons that were three months old and another one that was four years old. She called the cops each time to report that her child had stopped breathing. Pilkington later admitted that she put a blanket over their faces so they would stop breathing.
Pilkington also has a daughter and felt like the boys were getting more attention from their dad. She wasn’t okay with this and wanted to fix that so in her mind killing the boys was the best way to do it. There is nothing showing that the dad was involved in the deaths of the three boys.
