Krim Family Murders

Marina Krim wants justice

Marina Krim, the mother of two children allegedly murdered by their nanny in her NYC apartment last October, made her first public appearance since she came home to the tragic scene of her slain children and the nanny she trusted with their lives lying wounded after an apparent suicide attempt.

Yoselyn Ortega, 50, was found fit to stand trial this week in the murder of Krim’s two-year-old son Leo and six-year-old daughter Lulu.

Krim released a letter, which she did not read herself, discussing the tragedy and calling for justice to be served. “[Ortega] did a horrible, horrible thing. We just want justice – that’s all we can hope for.”

The letter reads in part: “Five months ago, on an ordinary October day in New York City, I lost two of my best friends, my six-year-old daughter Lulu and my two-year-old son Leo. Nessie our middle child, just three years old at the time, became an only child. My entire existence was shattered.”

“My simple charming old life, from the moment I woke up till the moment I went to sleep, revolved around my kids and I was extremely proud of that. Kids live in the present and we should too. My most magical moments with Lulu and Leo almost never involved material items. It was the look of pride I would see on Lulu’s face when I would pick her up from art class. It was watching Leo’s deep brown curious eyes track a caterpillar in the grass.”

“My most important challenge is to remember and see the magic in the present every day.”
