A woman who was hearing voices tossed her three young children off a pier into San Francisco Bay, authorities said. Rescuers had found one body, and
the two other children were feared dead.
Lashaun Harris, 23, of Oakland, was booked on three counts of murder, the San Francisco Chronicle reported in Thursday's editions. Her children were
identified as Trayshaun Harris, 6, Travante Greely, 3, and Joshua Harris, 1.
A child's body was found about four hours after a witness reported seeing a woman drop the children into the bay Wednesday near Pier 7, said Jonathan
Guerra of the U.S. Coast Guard. The identity of the body was not immediately able to be confirmed.
The San Francisco Examiner reported Thursday that the body was that of the 3-year-old.

Reportedly Harris had been staying with her children at a Salvation Army shelter in Oakland, Calif; further more, it is believed she may have
suffered from mental problems and had not been taking her medication as she should have been.
This is indeed a tragedy, yet I wonder why the shelter authorities never picked up some odd behavior on her part?
Better yet do they even care? Does anyone know the answer to that?
