Foster Mom Arrested in California after Drowning Twins to Death; Real Mom Reeling with Grief after Immense Loss

According to court records and the victims’ family, a woman was apprehended by the Roseville Police Department on Monday in connection with the drowning of twin infants while they were residing with their foster family last year.

Schitara Page, a 37-year-old foster mother, was apprehended on Thursday in Placer Superior Court following the filing of a criminal complaint. The same day, an arrest warrant was issued.

Prosecutors have charged Page with two felony counts of child abuse or endangering children leading to severe bodily injury or death. She is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday.

On October 9, Roseville police officers were summoned to a residence in the Waterford Glen neighborhood in response to complaints of two children who were unresponsive in a swimming pool.

Legend and Sincere Strong, two children, were subsequently identified. Their biological mother recalled them as children who delighted in smiling. “I am delighted that they have taken up the case,” biological mother Alize Strong stated in a telephone interview on Tuesday. “However, I am interested in learning more about the case.” On October 9, Legend, bottom, and Sincere Robinson Strong were discovered unresponsive in a residential swimming pool. Court records indicate that Page’s charges include allegations of willful harm or injuries that resulted in death. This information is provided by Alize Strong. In lieu of $100,000 bail, she is currently being detained at South Placer Jail. The specifics of the accusation were not immediately apparent. Stephanie Herrera, a spokeswoman for the Placer County District Attorney’s Office, and Lt. Chris Ciampa, a spokesman for the Roseville Police Department, did not immediately respond to comments on Tuesday.

According to the mandatory suspected child abuse report submitted to California Department of Social Services officials, Page, whose name was redacted in the CPS reports, informed law enforcement that she “looked away for five minutes” before discovering the twins in the pool. According to the extensively redacted report, she initiated CPR after dialing 911.

The report stated that the duration of the children’s time in the pool is uncertain. Page also informed authorities that she was working upstairs at the time of the incident and believed the boys were sleeping as reported by SacBee.

Page has denied to respond to any additional inquiries from law enforcement, according to the reports. A risk assessment of the home indicated that there were no prior neglect or abuse investigations of Page conducted by law enforcement at the residence. Strong, the biological mother, stated that she is still unaware of the fate of her children. However, she expressed that the detention has given her optimism regarding the inquiry into the fate of her sons.
