Mom Says She Drove 4 Kids Into Lake To Kill Them

Key Points: children, court, Akon Guode, car, and witness

The story bears some similarity to a 1995 crime by American mom Susan Smith, who parked her car at the edge of a South Carolina lake and let it roll in with her two toddler sons strapped into their car seats. Baby Bol (left) and 4-year-old twins Madit (center) and Hanger (right) died last year after their mother drove into a lake with four of her children in the car.

What haunts theorists to this day, apart from the victim’s uniquely nightmarish visage, is that the case remains unsolved after some 200 suspects were interviewed and ultimately released–making it one of Hollywood’s most lurid legends.
