All American media outlets have reported news about the case. It is believed that the horrifying incident occurred right before Christmas, on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, just moments after midnight.

On that tragic night, the 35-year-old mother of three, Kimberlee Singler, called 911 in a state of despair and requested police assistance at her home on Palomino Ranch Point in Colorado Springs. She claimed that someone had broken into her house and assaulted her.

Did she murder her children and then stage a break-in? Police are investigating

Once at the scene, officers discovered the visibly shaken 35-year-old woman and her 11-year-old daughter. After a thorough exploration of the house, they tragically found the bloody bodies of two other children, a 9-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy. Sadly, there was no hope of saving them.

The injured mother and the surviving child were taken to hospital. After recovering, the 35-year-old mother was released from the hospital and moved in with her family. However, not long after that, she vanished, and authorities could not trace her.

The police issued a warrant for Singler's arrest on December 26. She is wanted on charges of murder, attempted murder, and child abuse. - "As the investigation into this matter continues, it has been determined that the initial report of a break-in was unfounded," informed the officers.

It is worth noting that Singler had been embroiled in a custody battle with her ex-husband for over four years. Court records reveal that she filed for divorce in 2018 and, since then, made numerous attempts to restrict her ex-husband's parental rights, all of which proved unsuccessful. The court ordered that the children be placed in their father's care from December 16 to December 31.
