Employee Fired After Leak of 911 Call

Related Stories

A 911 center employee has been fired for giving the media copies of a call made by a western Pennsylvania woman who's charged with drowning two of her young children.

Allegheny County Emergency Services Chief Alvin Henderson says the unidentified employee was terminated Friday because policies prohibit disclosing 911 calls or transcripts.

County detectives allege that 40-year-old Laurel Michelle Schlemmer told them she tried to drown both boys after another son left for school. She told detectives she heard "crazy voices" telling her to push her sons underwater before she sat on the boys in the bathtub.

Schlemmer is jailed without bond on criminal homicide and other charges in the death of her 3-year-old son, Luke, and injuries suffered by his 6-year-old brother, Daniel.
