Diane Downs Says From Prison That She Shot Her 3 Kids for Her Lover
January 30, 2021
On May 19, 1983, Diane Downs drove herself and her three children to an emergency room in Springfield, Oregon, saying she had been shot by a “bushy-haired man" who had tried to steal her car on a desolate road. Yet, cops determined it was Downs who actually killed her daughter and tried to kill her other two children because she said her boyfriend hated them. In 1989, Inside Edition was granted permission to interview Downs about her crimes from inside her prison cell.
