Miriam Carey, 34, a dental hygienist from Stamford, Connecticut, has been identified as the woman shot by Capitol Hill police after she attempted to drive her vehicle into a barricade near the White House, setting off a police chase that led to her death. According to the Associated Press, Carey was delusional and reportedly believed the President had communicated with her. Her mother also told ABC News that Carey suffered from postpartum depression. “A few months later, she got sick. She was depressed … She was hospitalized.” Her child, a 1-year-old girl named Erica, was taken to a hospital and is now in protective custody.
