(NY DAILY NEWS) – Two young boys and their mother were found dead inside their Queens home Sunday in what cops say was a double murder-suicide, according to sources.
The mom, identified by relatives as Rocio Siguencia, 31, appeared to have hung herself in the home on 111th St. near 37th Ave. in Corona, source said. She was discovered dead with her two sons just after 11:30 a.m.
It was not immediately clear how her two boys, ages 10 and 2, died, but cops believe she killed them.
Gloria Calle, a cousin of the mom, had plans to meet her Sunday after speaking to her the day before.
“Today we were going to bring the kids to the park to play,” Calle said. “That’s what she said. And I was waiting for her to call me that she was ready to take them but that’s not what happened.”
“I feel very bad,” Calle added. “For me it was like she was like a sister. I’m very sad, knowing she left this life with her two sons.”
The city medical examiner will conduct autopsies on the mother and sons to determine their causes of death.
Family members said the mom immigrated from Ecuador but both of her kids were born in the U.S. She lived with her parents, her husband and the two sons.
Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz told reporters as she left the crime scene that she had no update on the shocking case.
