A mother accused of killing her two children asked if they wanted to live or if they wanted to go to heaven.


In an exclusive interview from the Elkhart County Jail, Indiana, with NewsChannel 15’s anchor Brett Thomas , 29-year-old Amber Pasztor coldly admitted to smothering her two children to death.

Pasztor told how she pushed in the door of the home of her father, the legal guardian of six-year-old Rene Pasztor and Liliana Hernandez, seven, in the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana, grabbed the children and put them into a stolen car, and just started driving, WANE reported.

Pasztor said she drove to Michigan when she received word that an Amber Alert had been issued for the children.

At that point Pasztor said she decided to kill her children. She said she didn’t have the heart to shoot them, so she smothered them in the car.

She asked Rene and Liliana if they wanted to live or if they wanted to go to heaven, having already decided she was going to kill them. she said.

“I gave them a choice,” she said. “That they could live, traumatised like their mom (sic), or they can go to heaven with God and be better off.”

She smothered her daughter first, she said. Then her son.

“He wanted to go with her,” she said.

“They were in good hands but I don’t think they were safe.

“My kids are in a better place … they’re in heaven now. They don’t have no worries no more.”

She faces two charges of murder.

  • Oh my gosh, that is just so horrid, I feel sick.


  • I wonder what the situation was that the children’s Grandfather was given legal guardianship of his grandchildren. It must have been pretty serious for the courts to order that. Rest in Peace little ones


  • I can’t believe a mother could do that to her children. They were happy and safe where they were. I hope she never gets out of jail. Those poor darlings.


  • Its a sad day when a mother kills her children and gets away with it even though shes in jail 4 doing it its a sad thing to say but hope she gets punished 4 it not life but death


  • Oh my God. This is terrible. Horrible. What kind of a person is she? And to make her son watch her kill his sibling. That’s some kind of evil. No excuses. Just evil. Those poor children. I imagine they’re in a better place now – safer and happier than the one in which their Mother lives.


  • I can’t begin to understand this. Those poor children


  • Clearly a sick way of thinking ! Hope she gets help and hope.


  • Such a pity this lady didn’t stay on her medication. RIP her children. How terrible.


  • Clearly she is mentally ill. Stable sane people don’t donthis and certainly don’t believe their children are better off in ‘heaven’ this taking their lives…


  • Why are we hearing more and more of cases like this?
    I dont understand why there are children dying daily like this


  • What a tragedy. Those poor children, thinking they’re safe with mum, someone who is supposed to love and protect them and do all she can to keep them safe. My heart breaks for them


  • Oh my! This woman has serious problems! And those poor kids… :-(


  • These poor children would not have understood what was happening.


  • Such a horrific thing to happen to these innocent children.


  • What was wrong with this mother, she sounds like she had mental health issues. Her poor children would not have understood what she was asking them! Terrible, RIP.
