Fox news is reporting that the woman behind the chaos in D.C. on Thursday "had a history of mental issues."

ABC News reports the woman shot and killed by police during the chase is Miriam Carey, a dental hygienist from Connecticut. Carey's mother said her daughter began suffering from post-partum depression after giving birth to Erica, her daughter, last August. Her daughter was in the car with her yesterday but escaped unharmed (thank God!).
