A MOM who allegedly had sex with a pitbull then hanged her kids wants her searches hidden after reportedly Googling “I almost got away with it.”
Attorneys for Lisa Snyder, 37, admitted that her search history could be perceived as “lewd, lascivious and/or unduly offensive.”
The lawyers also said that handing her previous browses over would unfairly prejudice jurors.
The news comes after claims that she murdered her eight-year-old son Conner and four-year-old daughter Brinley at their home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, in September 2019.
The children were found hanged from a dog leash with two wooden dining room chairs found knocked over nearby.
Previous court papers, that were seen by The Morning Call, show the accused murderer allegedly Googled “carbon monoxide in a car how long to die,” “hanging yourself,” and “I almost got away with it best episodes,” in the weeks before Brinley and Conner’s deaths.
She is also said to have bought a dog leash with her phone.
Snyder’s lawyers also claimed this week that she had a “chronic history of severe mental disorders,” the Morning Call reported.
They added that the illness gave her a “desire to protect her children from feelings of abandonment and/or to alleviate the painful feelings and situations they were experiencing at the time.”
Attorneys also asked for her to be tried outside of her house and for the bestiality charge to be tried separately from the murder counts.
However, prosecutors opposed both requests.
Brinley and Conner died after being taken off of life support on January 26, three days after they were found unresponsive in the basement of their home.
An occupational therapist who worked with Conner told investigators that the boy had physical disabilities that would make it nearly impossible for him to work the clasp on the dog leash, The Morning Call reported.
While investigating the deaths of the children, detectives discovered sexually explicit photos of Snyder having sex with the family dog, prompting the animal cruelty charges she now faces.
She told cops she owned the dog – a black pit bull mix weighing 50 pounds – but said she’d given the dog away.
On the night of the hangings, Synder allegedly told rescue workers that her son was bullied and had been threatening suicide – contrary to multiple videos viewed by police that showed Conner laughing alongside his supposed intimidators.
Snyder has been charged with first- and third-degree murder, tampering with evidence, endangering the welfare of children, and sexual intercourse with a dog.
