"Listen to their screams...", an African woman told her husband as she called to tell him she was burning their 3 daughters alive. Reportedly high on drugs, she locked her three daughters in their garden shed and set it on fire, forcing her husband to listen at the end of a phone. She went on to say;
"I can hear their screams but I will do nothing to save them.You'd better hurry but you will be too late to rescue them. They won't survive. I will never surrender my children to you."
The man, Hellmut Ulin, 38, a foreman on a building site 12 miles away, listened in horror as his wife - a former prostitute of senegalese descent - Thioro Mbow taunted him on the phone as his three precious children perished in the flames.
According to UK Mirror, the 35-year-old wife, had earlier received a legal letter from her husband's lawyer demanding custody of the children.
"I had the letter sent by a court bailiff. I wanted to give her a fright. I didn't want her to go. I just wanted her to stop drinking and taking pills."
The girls' father jumped into his car and raced back to his home in Lennik, a small town near Brussels, Belgium, while phoning his sister who lives nearby to hurry round to the house.
But it was too late to save his daughters Omy, two, Abbygail, four, and Madyson, six. All he found were their charred and lifeless bodies with their mother standing near the still smoking garden shed.

Family friend Viviane van Eeckhoudt, who accompanied the sister to the scene said:
"There was no chance to save the little ones. The shed was stuffed with paper and the flames were so fierce. It was a horrible death. We saw the mother at the scene. There were no tears in her eyes and she did not seem to be in a panic."
Said former court psychiatrist Johan Baeke,
"It's impossible to understand how a mother can burn her children alive. She must have been under a deep depression."
A look at Mbow's Facebook profile showed a deep hatred for her ex-husband Hellmut Ulin, though she also writes that she pities the man and the people around him. This is evident from posts and comments on the photos she posted in the last few days through her account.
"A being closer to a dog than to a man. He has respect for no one, not even himself. He has so much hatred in him to others that he can not eat or drink there. See people who are happy, feel good about themselves or simply to rest - including his wife - makes him indescribably angry. That his father was an officer in the Waffen-SS, he mentions as an excuse for his behavior. I grew up in a world of violence , he says. But I think it is rather in a world full of hate. You put yourself and the children on their way to a major failure."
Reactions on the now deleted account since the horrific murder of her three children, show scathing posts from other people on the woman's profile. "You're a selfish and a monster" and "A woman like you can not 'mama' call 'are just some of the comments.
