More Details Released on Cliff Plunge That Killed Family of 8

Two women drugged themselves and their six adopted children before intentionally killing the entire family by driving off a California cliff last year, a special coroner’s jury has ruled on Thursday.

The jury unanimously found that Jennifer and Sarah Hart, both 38, committed suicide and that their six children, ages 12 to 19, died “at the hands of another, other than an accident” in the Mendocino County murder-suicide on March 26, 2018. Investigators testified that the women took steps in advance to intentionally kill their entire family by driving off a 100-foot cliff along Highway 1 near Westport with their drugged children inside their 2003 GMC Yukon. The crash happened just after authorities in Washington state opened an investigation into the family after allegations that the children were being neglected.
