In the aftermath of the Krim family double murders which saw Marina and Kevin Krim‘s two children 6 year old and 2 year old Lulu and Leo Krim savagely butchered by their supposed caretaker shocking new revelations are starting to take place as the almost cavalier nanny Yoselyn Ortega finally relents and begins sharing with authorities her version of events.

According to a report via radaronline who have been able to siphon through unnamed sources what the former nanny has told authorities this weekend pursuant to now regaining consciousness after her failed suicide attempt at the time of the double murders a bleak and disparaging image is starting to be painted.

Where instead of a peaceful and loving household as portended in Marina Krim’s family blog was suppose to exist it is now becoming apparent that instead a hostile and to say the least dubious relationship between caretaker and employer actually existed.

“Yoselyn implied there was a lot of strain between she and Marina in the days leading up to the murders of little Leo and his older sister Lucia,”

In fact so much strain that the two are said to have had a major argument the day before the slayings.

“Yoselyn told NYPD detectives that she was involved in an epic argument with Marina Krim the day before the children were tragically murdered,”

“Yoselyn also said that when she left at the end of the day before the murders, Marina ignored her when she said good-bye and this made her very, very angry. Yoselyn became extremely animated when she discussed the incident with law enforcement. Yoselyn also said she had numerous disagreements with Marina about how the kids were being cared for. Marina didn’t think Yoselyn was interacting with the kids enough and was giving them junk food when she was out of sight.”

But the story it seems become even more gruesome with new revelations that Ortega harbored seething resentment towards her employers, the Krim family because she also felt she was being exploited and underpaid.

“The detectives were amazed at how cavalier Yoselyn was during parts of her interrogation. Yoselyn complained that she thought she should of been making more money and that she was being underpaid for additional duties than what she signed up for. When Yoselyn began working for the Krims they also had a housekeeper and Yoselyn said that she didn’t like the way that Marina spoke to her. It was obvious Yoselyn was trying to portray her in a bad light.”

This goes against the Krim family’s efforts to have the nanny work more hours which she declined and resented as it would mean cleaning the household and taking more orders. The Krim family had even gone so far as to set up Ms Ortega with another family for possible nanny work there but the family declined finding Ms Ortega’s attitude repellant, something that must have been too apparent to the Krim family by now but who instead chose to keep Ms Ortega on than rather dismiss her as most families would be inclined to do given the extraordinary trust a family places in their nanny.

As previously reported Ortega has declined to admit to actually killing the children and has instead shifted the blame to Marina Krim, telling cops that she ‘knows what happened.’

Says radar’s source:

“The detectives aren’t buying the nanny’s story because it just doesn’t line up with interviews they have conducted with other people as part of the investigation,” the source says. “Marina was and is a very loving mother, who went out of her way to make Yoselyn feel like a part of the family.”

The latest news from Ortega’s hospital bed follows after the Krim family held an emotional memorial service at Avery Hall this weekend where family and friends said goodbye to the beloved children.

Offered a family statement at the funeral where security was exceptionally tight:

“It is important to us that they are remembered as the sweet, creative, and fun-loving children they were.”

And then there’s this too:

“The detectives are planning on doing follow-up interviews with Marina and Kevin when they are ready,” the source says. “Marina has been absolutely inconsolable obviously, and says her sole reason for living now is for their remaining daughter Nessie. It’s just absolutely heartbreaking to see the Krims go through this utter hell, they did nothing to deserve this.”

Did nothing to deserve this yet in Ms Ortega’s mind it is starting to become obvious that the Krim family did indeed deserve what befell them…which begs the ultimate question how did it come to this and what dangers may lurk ahead for other parents who are also forced to deal with the delicate socio economic polarities that so often exist between care takers and themselves?

Then again perhaps this all boils down to the depraved mindset of a mentally disturbed individual who was seething at the core and decided to lash out at the one thing she instinctively knew she ought to have never ashes out against but callously did nonetheless, the Krim family children….

  1. If a person feels underpaid and is talked down to as well as ordered around too much the recourse is MOT to kill other people (in this case tiny children). The correct course of action is to QUIT YOUR JOB!!!

  2. Hi Jay, in the UK and Europe there is no death penalty (last execution in the UK before it was made illegal was in 1964). However, you are wrong, in the Vast majority of the world (Middle East, Asia, South East Asia, Africa, etc) there is the death penalty, and often it is widely enforced. I am British, and yes, in most cases the death penalty is wrong and, on the whole, better that it is not a possibility here – however – for crimes like this – against children then it should be mandatory.

  3. Oh actually in the most countries around the world there is no death penalty. in the most civilised part of the word (europe) there is no counrty with the death penalty. just so you know.

  4. I just cry, cry and cry. Cant really think about nothing but the possible punishment for this ugly bitch. Sentence in jail is just too good for her! They should just cut her ugly hands and legs off. And depart this monster back to its country.

  5. “Where instead of a peaceful and loving household as portended in Marina Krim’s family blog was suppose to exist it is now becoming apparent that instead a hostile and to say the least dubious relationship between caretaker and employer actually existed.” Wow. You might need to learn to write.

  6. Apparently it happened quite quickly because a neighbor claims she had just a few minutes before seen Ortega come in with the kids. it’s like she got through the front door of the apartment and just went and did the deed, which fact would point to pre-meditation.

  7. I don’t like my boss either, but it doesn’t mean I should go and slaughter my bosses kids just because I think I’m underpaid and I don’t like the way I’m talked to…..honestly I’m glad the nanny didn’t die because she needs to face what she did to this family and pay for it…Killing herself is just a quick way out.

  8. Imagine the horror of what that poor mother walked into. My mind would shatter and I’d be in a mental institution reliving the hell over and over… I can’t stop thinking about this family and wondering how they are going to put their lives back together. The nanny is obviously a psychopath, with narcissistic personality traits as another reader put it. To be completely oblivious to the horror, pain and mind-numbing grief of the Krim family clearly illustrates her monstrous nature. This is someone without remorse or feeling – to kill two innocent children because of some perceived ‘slight’ or unfair treatment.

    Throw away the key and let her rot in jail.

    I pray for this family. Yes, they are affluent and lived a lifestyle people dream about, but they are still human beings; parents who loved their children immeasurably and did not deserve this terrible blow. I can’t believe what I’ve read on other forums – people criticizing them for having a nanny, or for leaving the children with her despite having had an argument. My God… do you really think she would have left the kids with her if she knew what was going to happen? Of course not! Normal people don’t think of things like that. There was no way to predict this and second guessing and blaming is just cruel. I can’t help but think of poor little Nessie in all of this too… Deprived of her loving siblings… not having a big sister to talk to as she grows up or a little brother to teach things to. It is so unjust and horrendous.

  9. I read that too. I don’t believe it.
    1. She had Nessie with her
    2. A mothers instinct would be to go to her children first
    3. Subsequent reports are that Mrs Ortega plunged the knife into her own neck in front of Mrs Krim so it is pretty clear even before an admission that she had stabbed the kids.

  10. Off topic a bit: the Krim had two dogs. Generally dogs are quite sensitive to these sorts of things. Even if they didn’t intervene in the attack I am surprised they didn’t whine and howl. Mrs Krim went up to the apartment twice. From what I can gather of the time line the kids were already stabbed at the time of the first entry to the apartment. We’re the dogs there at the time?

  11. I read elsewhere that the mother, upon finding the nanny, took a towel to cover the nanny’s throat and help her stop bleeding. To me, this act is illustrative of the decency of the mother. (I dont think I would be so humane!). Perhaps the Krim’s underpaid the nanny and perhaps they werent always the nicest (lets just entertain that possibility). Even if this were the case, would that merit slaughtering two children who trusted this person? How could this lady look at this little girl who is fighting for her life and continue to stab her? Im geerally not a superficial person but this nanny doesnt look sweet at all (and her actions show that she is a resentful, vindictive, jealous murderer). No mercy for this ‘lady’.

  12. I live in England and have been reading the news on this and it has shocked me to the core. I fully agree with the other two comments on here. The Nanny – who was also a mother herself ! – can try any disgusting excuse she can lay her hands on – mental illness, money worries, low pay – etc etc. It’s all ridiculous, she was a nanny – not a slave laborer in a mine in southern Africa or a refuse/dump worker like kids in India – who was paid, who was offered alternate sources of income (extra work, nanny to another family) in the richest country in the world. It beggars belief that she committed such a crime and Anyone that tries to – in any way – justify this act should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. It is too bad that (as I understand it) there is no death penalty in New York State. If she had done this in most countries all over the world the punishment would be something she really deserves. Personally, I think it will come out that she has “Narcissistic personality disorder” which Jeffrey Dahmer was also said to have.

    She is an utter monster and there are no words to express what she did to that family, to those children, or to Ms Krim to have to witness such horror. My god it would make you go insane to see such a thing. Utterly, utterly unforgivable. My heart breaks for the Krim family.

  13. I agree. I think she felt the Krims owed her money, a place to live, more and more and more, and they couldn’t accept all the demands. She felt she was entitled, she was probably jealous of the Krims’ lifestyle and apartment, and was seething in fury when rejected for money. The mistake the poor Krims made was that they didn’t fire this bitter hag from the moment they had bad vibes – but who would possibly predict this nanny would commit murder – against babies, no less! I think she’s a psychopath who felt justified in her actions and will blame others for her predicament, whilst painting herself as the main victim in the story. She is beyond despicable.

  14. This nanny is the despicable example of how a lazy, entitled and ungrateful person’s deranged mind works… She butchered 2 innocent children because she was “angry” with the way her employer spoke to her? and “offended” for being asked to do housework? She could have quit her job and stop being offended!!! Lots of other nannies would have been more than happy to replace her.
    My heart goes out to Kevin and Marina Krim. Their life is destroyed because of this crazy, self-absorbed woman.
