"(People) can become very confused, disoriented and in cases, start to disrobe because they actually believe that they're extremely hot," Henderson said.
Just how long the family was outside is unclear. Henderson said sometime after her husband Mike left for work around five that morning, Jaime left the apartment, leaving behind her own eyeglasses and all of their winter coats. He said it appeared they left suddenly.
"What happened that morning, we're not certain, but something caused her great concern or frightened her to leave the apartment," he said.
Just after 7 a.m., she knocked on a neighbor's door.
"It appeared that she wanted to come into the home with the children, that she was concerned about something, looking around, appeared to be disturbed," said Henderson.
Hours later, they were found in the creek. Henderson said there were no signs of a struggle and no signs that Brandon, who by all accounts was smart and engaging, was held underwater or fought off anyone. All of that, he said led the grand jury to its conclusion. "They do not believe that Jaime Clutter killed her two children nor do they believe that Jaime Clutter drowned her two children and finally they don't believe that Jaime Clutter committed suicide," he said.
Henderson said it's difficult to tell if the conclusions of the New Albany Police investigation that Jaime Clutter suffered from either post-partum depression or psychosis were accurate because there were no mental health records. He added that although friends said she had expressed concerns about what was going on in the world and the crowded family living in a new apartment, no one ever thought the children were in danger.
