The birth of twins to a new Queens mom, greeted with joy last month by relatives, turned to heartbreak just six weeks after their arrival.
“Huge congratulations to my Sister … on her newborn twins Dallas and Dakota … I’m so happy for her,” the babies’ aunt wrote on Facebook on March 7, attracting dozens of comments congratulating the family.
On Thursday afternoon, both Dallas and Dakota were found dead in their mother’s Woodside Houses home, with the mom taken to the 114th Precinct for questioning.
Police arrived at the 51st St. home after a concerned cousin, Keywona Llanos, called 911 after a worrisome conversation with the mother, cops said.
Llanos, an NYPD housing officer, was still stunned when approached by a Daily News reporter Friday.
“We really can’t talk now,” she said. “No comment, no comment.”
The mother said a little more when police arrived Thursday around 3 p.m. “I do not want them,” she told cops while sitting on a bed inside the home, a source said.
Little Dallas was found in a bassinet in a rear bedroom with knife sticking out of his neck. The mom directed officers to the cabinet beneath the sink where police found Dakota swaddled in a blanket stuffed inside a plastic bag,.
The mom had recently moved to Queens from Yonkers, and a police source confirmed that cops in Yonkers had previously responded to disturbances at her home there.
The medical examiner was conducting autopsies on the two helpless victims. No charges have been filed against the mother.
After the infants were discovered Thursday afternoon, the weeping Llanos asked the public to keep the family in their prayers.
“This is really a tragedy for the whole family. I don’t know what to say,” said the devastated housing officer. “I’m at a loss for words.”
Asked if the mother suffered from mental illness, Llanos responded, “Mental illness is big.”
