Marina Krim stumbled upon a horrifying scene in Manhattan yesterday, when she entered her apartment to find two of her three children dead of stab wounds believed to have been inflicted by the family’s nanny, Yoselyn Ortega.
Marina Krim’s blog, hosted on LiveJournal, became a frequently-cited source for the media in the wake of the shocking NYC nanny murders. But the blog has since been removed from LiveJournal’s servers, perhaps due to the intense media scrutiny following the killings.
Little Nessie Krim, 3, was with her mother at swimming lessons when the murders are likely to have occurred, but Leo, 2, and Lucia, 6, were tragically stabbed to death.
Marina’s blog postings read now, after the tragedy, are nearly unbearable to behold given the horrifying events. Just two weeks ago on October 12th, Krim wrote:
“Leo ‘Lito’ Krim!!!!! Yes, the 2 year old boy. One of the best parts of my day is after I drop both girls off at school and have 3 precious hours with little Lito all to myself. Ok, I’m near getting cheesy I adore this boy so much!!! He’s obsessed with collecting acorns he finds ‘on the floor’, he loves riding ‘the school bus’ and he happily plays by himself for long periods of time. Here he has set up his kitchen in the living room and is “making bacon” (not sure where he learned the word ‘bacon’).”
On September 30, Krim wrote of Leo’s birthday, letting the kids stay up late and enjoy the special day. She blogged:
“Here’s Leo and his Pinkalicious-inspired cupcakes (one of his favorite books). It’s 10:04pm and all 3 kids are still wide awake and wild in bed….think I put too much sugar in those things? Lito finally says he’s 2…for the longest time, he liked to say he was 4. Such an adorable boy he is!!!”
Back in February, Marina Krim blogged about traveling to the Dominican Republic to meet the family of a nanny on littlemisslucia.livejournal.com.
