A lesbian couple and their six adopted children plummeted to their deaths last Monday, after their vehicle flew off a cliff in Northern California. While police initially believed the incident was a tragic accident, new evidence shows it was likely "intentional."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the car was travelling at 90 mph at the time of the collision.
"While it has been documented that the car was traveling at 90 mph upon impact, it is not conclusive whatsoever. We do have reason to believe, however, that the crash was intentional. This is all based on preliminary information," California Highway Patrol Acting Assistant Chief Greg Baart told KGW 8 News this Saturday.
Investigators searched the women's home for suicide notes, though it is unclear whether or not they found any, according to CrimeOnline.
"It was documented at the time of the crash, the vehicle was 'pinned' or was traveling at '90 mph.' However, that information is not conclusive or factual. The speedometer could have moved at impact or somehow was manipulated," Baart added.
Neighbors of Jennifer Hart, 38, and wife Sarah Hart, 38, previously told the Associated Press that they were worried about the children's safety. The kids had allegedly gone door to door begging for food, and Child Protective Services had visited the home various times.
The incident also came after Sarah was convicted of domestic assault.
New reports have claimed the lesbian couple fled with their children after a CPS worker visited their home three days before the crash.
