On October 25, 2020, one of our admins was sent a message regarding a possible murder-suicide in Whatcom Co, Washington. The messenger said that a woman named Michele Boudreau Angelis had allegedly killed her two young daughters in a murder-suicide. There was no media about this case that had been released at the time, apart from this:
You can see Michele’s personal Facebook account here. She had many photos of her twin daughters on her page. And in the last few days of her life, she made many posts about narcissistic parents.
The messenger told us that Michele and her ex-husband had been going through a messy court battle, and that her ex wanted full custody of the girls.
Michele promoted herself as a Psychologist. You can see her business site for Rising Sun Psychotherapy here.
Her business website address is https://www.drmicheleboudreau.com

Information about Michele’s past started emerging. She has had many names in the past, likely from former marriages/common law relationships.
A group member also found that Michele was marketing herself as a Psychologist, when she was really only licensed to be a mental health counselor. She had also been put on probation 2011 and had received many negative reviews regarding her practice:
Carmen Cabrera-Fuentes launched a lawsuit against Michele in 2020. She alleged that the two met on Match.com in 2017 and they moved in together in October of that year. You can read all the legal documents here:
On October 26, the sad news was confirmed by Komo News:
A Whatcom County woman shot and killed her twin daughters and then herself in an apparent double murder-suicide late Friday, sheriff’s officials confirmed Monday.
Deputies responded to the scene, a home on Sunflower Circle in Sudden Valley, at around 1:15 p.m. Saturday after receiving a 911 call from a roommate at the multi-level residence. The roommate reported finding his landlord and her two daughters dead in an upstairs bedroom.
Detectives were then called to the home and spent the afternoon and evening collecting evidence, according to the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office.
A preliminary investigation found that the mother, identified as 55-year-old Michele Boudreau Deegan, shot her twin 7-year-old daughters while they were sleeping, then shot herself sometime on Friday evening, sheriff’s officials said.
The investigation indicated that Deegan had been involved in a custody dispute over the children, which appears to be the primary motive behind the killings.
The three bodies have been turned over to the Whatcom County Medical Examiner’s Office. Autopsies are planned.
Homes are being sought for Michele’s pets:
The twins have been named as Katie Elizabeth and Mairy Anneliese. You can see their obituary here.
On October 29, Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Michele had drugged the twins before killing them.
The twins’ father Scott made a public post about the situation:
