Naperville, Ill – A woman in Illinois has been charged with two counts of murder after she stabbed two children to death because voices told her it was the only way to save their souls.

I’ve collected the following details from a few news articles, but from what I can gather, 40-year-old Elzbieta Plackowska was babysitting 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski at her home, along with her her 8-year-old son, Justin Plackowska. At some point on Tuesday, Plackowska packed up the children and drove to a nearby church before driving to Olivia’s home. During this time, she argued on the phone with her husband because she had recently lost her father and wanted to return to her native Poland, but her husband wanted to stay here.

On top of all that, according to Plackowska, she was hearing demonic voices that were informing her that the children’s souls were in peril and that the only way to save them would be to volunteer at a nearby homeless shelter stab the children to death. Instead of disobeying the demonic voices, she stabbed Justin and Olivia to death, along with two dogs. Afterwards, she got into her car and drove back to the church she visited previously. No one was there, so she left several messages on the church’s answering machine before tossing her cellphone out of the window and driving to her adult son’s house.

Her son, seeing his mother distraught, covered in blood, and missing two children, figured something terrible had happened and called 911. At around the same time, Olivia’s mother was frantically calling police because she was unable to find her daughter after working the evening shift at a dialysis lab and arriving at Plackowska’s home to pick up her daughter. Police would end up breaking into that woman’s home where they would find Justin dead on a mattress in a bedroom and Olivia dead on the floor. They had been stabbed multiple times.

Prosecutors say that Plackowska admitted she killed Justin because she wanted her husband to hurt like she did. Plackowska told investigators she found Justin and Olivia jumping on the bed and then attacked them with a knife. She made the children kneel and begin praying before stabbing her son Justin 100 times and slitting his throat. Justin begged for his life and told her to stop, but she told him he was going to Heaven tonight and continued to stab him. She then stabbed Olivia 50 times because she had witnessed the attack.

Olivia was a student at Brookdale Elementary while Justin attended Scott Elementary. The Chicago Tribune reported that crime scene tape was up in front of Olivia’s home on Halloween while kids went trick-or-treating in the neighborhood, while outside Plackowska’s home, a young boy looked up at Justin’s balcony and called out the boy’s name before turning away after receiving no answer.

    There was a similar story in Brownsvile TX many years ago. Mother decapitated her 3 kids because the voices in her head told her to.

  • Evan Oswald

    so what’s the lesson of this story?

  • Sam

    Wow. That’s taking your Halloween costume just a little too far, isn’t it?

  • Evan Oswald

    don’t let your kids be babysat by crazy polish women? She does look crazy. I like the little detail Morbid left out: “Plackowska initially said an intruder stabbed the children” that i found at http://www.myfoxphilly.com/story/19974224/elzbeta-plackowska-denied-bail-charged-fatal-stabbing-murder-two-young-kids-naperville (picture of the bitch here)

  • newstarshipsmell

    “…she was hearing demonic voices that were informing her that the children’s souls were in peril and that the only way to save them would be to volunteer at a nearby homeless shelter stab the children to death.”

    I don’t even know they have any homeless shelters in Naperville. They’re the richest city in the midwest.

  • Sam

    Did nobody around her notice she was getting somewhat unhinged? Surely there must have been signs.

    It depresses me that ^ that seems to be such a valid question after so many tragedies. Have we just become a world of zombies who don’t pay attention to each other anymore?

  • Sam

    I wonder if Dworakowski deliberately sought out a Polish babysitter, so her boy could feel closer to his (or at least his mum’s) roots.

  • Sam

    Your avatar. It’s too… wholesome.
    …or are you just trying to keep us on our toes? :)

  • newstarshipsmell

    Prosecutors told the court that Plackowska initially said an intruder stabbed the children. They said she called police to report an intruder – before Dworakowski asked for the well-being check – and she told them that a stalker had come into the townhouse intending to rob them, after she exited the house to smoke a cigarette.

    She eventually changed her story and said the devil was inside her. She told police the children were the evils of society, and that she acted alone.

    Prosecutors told the court that the children were jumping on the bed in the master bedroom, when Plackowska walked in, armed with a knife. She made the young ones get on their knees and pray. She told her son, Justin, that he was going to heaven that night.

    Prosecutors said she proceeded to stab Justin 100 times. She stabbed Olivia 50 times.

    Jesus Christ. Poor kids.

  • Evan Oswald

    that’s an interesting thought.

  • Evan Oswald

    is there an app for that?

  • newstarshipsmell

    I’m sure Heather will love it.

  • Sam

    What have you done to her, to make you have to suck up to her??

  • CT

    If she initially said that an intruder stabbed the kids she can’t be all that fucking bat shit crazy since she was able to come up with someone else real quick to pin it on.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I meant she would love it for the kittens and rainbows reference.

    As far as what I’ve done to her? See this and this.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I updated the article with more info. Christ, that’s bad.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Don’t let Polish people babysit your kids! Their country has violent people in it!!!!

  • JGo555

    My demonic voices tell me to eat that 3rd piece of dessert, to eat all of that bread & to go to town on fried chicken.
    Why in the fuck do demonic voices don’t talk like that to others. I hope demonic voices tell her to eat shit the rest of her life.

  • JGo555

    Sarcasm font or not, I know you are being sarcastic. I wonder if her crazy ass would’ve gone THIS “crazy” in Poland.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Uh, why the hell would a demon tell her how to save the childrens souls? Her logic was way off is she didn’t notice that faux pas.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Did you say something?

  • LeaveMeBe

    Polish/Dominican would be uber violent then. :P

  • LeaveMeBe

    We hear the same voices! Except mine doesn’t like dessert.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Yeah, it’s kinda skeeving me out. I saw it this morning in my Disqus feed and was like whothehell is that?

  • Pipsmom06

    It is too early in the morning for this shit! Sounds to me like her first thought was to play crazy bc she later told investigators she wanted her sons father to hurt and the little girl witnessed the murder, so she had to go too. Sounds lucid enough for a needle in the arm to me. I relocated to California from Ohio and miss it terribly, but you don’t see me getting all stabby…not with kids anyway…

  • Sam

    Sorry, what was that? I was too busy making fun of somebody’s muffintop to hear you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rochell-Arnold/100000587657456 Rochell Arnold

    Fucking horrible, why didn’t she just kill herself instead of taking innocent lives! Fucking bitch.

  • tkaz

    Haha…see, I remember the Dominican comment so this makes sense. I love it when I know back stories… :)

  • tkaz

    So….crazy thing about voices, if you know they’re demonic, don’t listen to them!

  • tkaz

    Joking aside, I love this analogy. All the zombie hype kind of makes sense in the world we live in. I am so SICK of some frigging zombie almost killing me because they’re on their cell & not paying attention. Smart phones do not make a zombie smarter.

  • Sam

    “Smart phones do not make a zombie smarter.”
    I think that’s my favourite quote this week.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Those voices aren’t in your head. That’s the clowns.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Yeah, after reading that other article, she sounds a lot less “batshit insane” and way more “cold, calculating evil” to me. I mean, really… she couldn’t wait until she was done babysitting to murder her own child? What’s the rush?

  • ShelbySP

    Was she trying to save the dogs’ souls too? I thought they all went to heaven no matter what?

  • LeaveMeBe

    I know you’re unhinged, but in a good way, so I just let it be. And quit stalking my FB and making fun of my muffintop. :P

  • LeaveMeBe

    *going to call Jaded to see where she buys her sporks in bulk*

  • newstarshipsmell

    I’ve got babies and rainbows if that’s less skeeveworthy.

  • tkaz

    I’m so happy I could be a part of that. :)

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    Everyone called me crazy for buying a “demonic voices.” answering machine. “TAKE THAT!! You evil demons.”

  • Jujubee

    There are a lot of crazies out there… I’m so sorry that the kids experienced so much pain before they died….

  • CT

    Screw u

  • Abroad

    She would most likely have drowned the voices in vodka there, – or tried to.

  • Evan Oswald

    an it’s Ohio.

  • LeaveMeBe

    You were awful nice about that.

    @NSS – you suck.

  • CT

    I’m not feeling very good today. I’ll be back to my nasty self by tomorrow.

  • come_and_see

    What is with these sick women always going after the kids to get back at somebody. My nephew’s biological fathers wife was abusing him because she wanted to get back at my sister.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Too much candy?

  • Eliza Berntsen

    Or it could be that both were immigrants working there and just kept together as it made them feel safer- my own countryman won’t hurt me- type of thing. They do that in the UK, specially where I live.

  • Dillon_Lewandowski

    I’m pretty sure her son’s name would be Justin Plackowski. -ska is reserved for females in Poland.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Wow. I find it so hard to believe that no one saw how severely disturbed and aggitated she was prior to this horrific event, but she was babysitting so even with doubt I can see it missed. What a fucked up, way fucked up tragedy. Scars for years.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Too bad nothing can make her suffer as much as she deserves to suffer.

  • AliceinChainsman =]

    Ahh the Demons of Naperville,,glad i moved far away from there, they were always telling me to shoot up the Mall..

    Not sure if I was supposed to laugh at the crossed out sentence but I did. Its fucked up when kids die because of some crazy fucker. Hope she gets the death penalty but im sure she will try to use the insanity buklshit.

  • bethied

    “Outside Plackowska’s home, a young boy looked up at Justin’s balcony and called out the boy’s name before turning away after receiving no answer.”

    Break my heart, why dontcha? Sheesh…

  • Rachel Ann

    I’d like to practice my acupuncture skills on this bitch. She’s not crazy she’s a selfish evil cunt who should NOT be breathing the same air as me. Fuck.

  • wastintime

    To bad she did not just kill herself. I hope she dies a slow and painfully lingering death.

  • CT

    My kids won’t let me near their candy bags. LIttle shits.

  • CT

    I just read this – fucking bitch wasn’t crazy but just a vindictive fucking twat. “She felt he truly did not appreciate how fine a wife and mother she was,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said. “She told the detectives that she thought by killing (her son) Justin she would make her husband hurt the way she hurt in their relationship.”

  • http://twitter.com/LaylaLolly LaylaLolly

    OMG…..the part about the little boy calling up to the balcony for his friend made my heart hurt.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    You have a scary-good memory. I’m worried.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I love that six people down-voted me because they don’t know the backstory! hahahaha

  • Evan Oswald

    from: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-57544243-504083/elzbieta-plackowska-update-husband-of-ill-mom-charged-with-stabbing-two-children-denies-the-couple-had-problems/?tag=re1.channel

    Prosecutors say that Elzbieta Plackowska told them she killed the two
    children out of anger at her often-absent, truck driver husband, but
    Artur Plackowska denied the couple were having problems.

    “She
    felt he truly did not appreciate how fine a wife and mother she was,”
    DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said. “She told the
    detectives that she thought by killing (her son) Justin she would make
    her husband hurt the way she hurt in their relationship.”

    Public records show the couple filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2009; a foreclosure in her name only was filed in 2007.

    Plackowska
    arrived in the United States from her native Poland on a tourist visa
    12 years ago, Berlin said. She is not a U.S. citizen and authorities
    were trying to verify her immigration status. Berlin said she has no
    prior history of violence, although she had a misdemeanor DUI about 10
    years ago.

    Please tell me you are not a particularly good acupuncturist.

    Disqus dashboard has a Search bar. I use it. But stay worried, it’ll come in handy later.

    Can’t think of a better way to demonstrate what a fine wife and mother you are than by killing your own child and babysitting charge. Let’s give her an award or two to show her our appreciation. Oh shit, it’s Illinois. We don’t hand out those awards here anymore, never mind.

  • Rachel Ann

    Naw I’m not which is why I need to practice. I’ll turn her ass into a pin cushion.

  • Dillon_Lewandowski

    i can testify that this is semi-true

    Throw this cunt in jail to rot and become some big woman’s bitch in the slammer. I hope she is stabbed over 150 times with a dull prison shank. Those poor kids :*(
