Issues with addiction and hunger also cause Lizzy’s family to fall apart. Lizzy at one point in the book even says that everyone in her family is on a different continent and she fears that they will soon drift away so far that it will be impossible for them to come back together.

So when the first thing she grabbed was the lamb leg, it wasn’t too much of a surprise that she used that to kill Patrick. Rewind; Mary brought the lamb upstairs and Mr. Maloney told her to not cook supper, he told her he was going out. This suddenly angered Mary and she drew the lamb leg back and hit him on the back of the head. She hit him so hard that he died.
