Andrea and Rusty Yates owned this house
by BlockShopper Historian published Sep. 16, 2010
Andrea Yates, the mother originally convicted of murder for drowning her five children in 2001, and her husband Russell Yates owned this house. In 2006, she was retried and was found not guilty by reason of insanity for drowning her children in this house. Andrea Yates had suffered from severe postpartum depression for years and is committed at a state mental hospital in Kerrville. Many legal experts and some in the media have questioned Russell Yate's complicity in the deaths of his children, questioning his lack of support or assistance in dealing with his wife's psychosis.
