Speaking with the Boston Globe, Reddington said on Thursday, “One of the major issues here is the horrific overmedication of drugs that caused homicidal ideation, suicidal ideation.”

Lindsay and her husband “went to doctors repeatedly saying ‘Please help us.’ This was turning her into a zombie …the medications that were prescribed were over the top, absolutely over the top,” the attorney added.

Clancy allegedly strangled her three children on January 24 and then jumped out of an upper story window at her Duxbury, Massachusetts home.

According to Clancy’s lawyer, between October of 2022 and January of this year, she was on 12 different prescription drugs and identified nine: Ambien, Klonopin, Valium, Prozac, Lamictil, Ativan, Remeron, Seroquel,  and trazodone.
