Inspired by Sermon, Woman Drowns Toddler, Poisons 10-Year Old

Kimberly Dawn Lucas was arrested and is being held at Palm Beach County Jail after she allegedly tried to poison both children Monday afternoon and allegedly drowned the girl in the bathtub.

Lucas and her longtime partner had raised the boy and girl since their birth.

On Wednesday, details emerged about a note left by Lucas that references a sermon she heard at Metropolitan Community Church on Sunday, the day before the death of the little girl.

According to the police report, police found a computer left on in the home where the murder of 2-year-old Elliana and the attempted murder of 10-year-old Ethan took place, with a message for whoever found it.

“In YOUR WORDS “WHEN YOU ARE LAYING IN BED AT NIGHT REMEMBER YOU FUCKING DID THIS TO YOURSELF!” the note says. “Lea’s sermon really, really touched me yesterday but God never told me to stop.
“Hell is what we (go) through on Earth. Enjoyed your life with possiblego out without us, he manage but give you finally what you what want because apparently over the past 20 years I was not able to. Love you Always Kimberly.”

…Police say the note left behind references the sermon given by Metropolitan Community Church Pastor Dr. Lea Brown.

“Her sermon covered Genesis 22, in which God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac,” the police report says. “But at the last minute, God stops him from doing so.”

Dr. Brown confirmed to police that Lucas and Ethan had attended the church service the Sunday before the tragedy and also confirmed giving a sermon on Genesis 22.

“It’s what I was called to do,” Brown told CBS12. “There’s no way anyone could have predicted this.”

Woman Says Demon Used Her to Drown 3-Year-Old Son

[Christine] Allen, 30, Las Vegas, had been lying on her bed Saturday, depressed, while her son Noah Lane Allen, 3, was taking a bath.

Then, Allen told police, it “was like a demon inside of me took over.” She went into the bathroom and asked her son if he wanted to go swimming. At first the boy answered yes. Allen then got into the tub and held her son’s head under water, according to a Metro Police arrest report released today. The boy struggled to get his head above water and told his mother he didn’t want to go swimming, but Allen pushed the boy’s head back under the surface.

Allen was booked on Saturday into Clark County Detention Center on one count of open murder in her son’s drowning. Clark County prosecutors today charged her with murder.
