Incest, Abuse, Dead Babies

Danial and Linda Rinehart

Harrisonville, MO–The baby in the cooler was wrapped in a blue blanket…clothed in dark blue pants, a blue turtle neck, white socks, and a stocking cap. There was a stuffed teddy bear and a toy car alongside him in his makeshift coffin. Another cooler, sealed with silicone, held yet another tiny body, this one wrapped in a thin blanket. There is another cooler, buried somewhere in Oklahoma, that holds yet another dead baby. The babies were fathered by their own grandfather, Danial Rinehart.

The abuse began in 2003. Rinehart began raping his 13-year-old daughter. She gave birth to her first child on March 24, 2004; she was 15-year-old. The baby girl died on July 8, 2004. The teen, her sisters, and her mother placed the baby into a cooler, sealed the lid, and buried the child in Oklahoma.

The family moved to Harrisonville in 2005. The teen gave birth again on August 2, 2005. The baby was born in a pickup truck…Danial and Linda delivered that child, Linda cut the umbilical cord. That child is still alive.

Another baby was born on November 17, 2006…another boy. Danial and Linda again assisted in the delivery. According to a probable cause statement, the baby boy became ill and died of pneumonia on February 28, 2007. No one sought medical attention for the child. The teen dressed the child, left a teddy bear and a toy car in the cooler, and sealed the lid. The teen and Danial dug a hole in the garage floor and buried the baby.

And again, the teen gave birth to yet another child on April 8, 2008…this time in a camper on the family’s property. Danial told the teen that the baby was stillborn. She wrapped it up, put it in a cooler, and put it in the garage near it’s sibling.

In October, the family’s secrets began to emerge when one of the suspect’s daughters told police that her sister was being molested by their father and had birthed four of his children. She also told authorities where they could find two of the bodies.

Authorities arrived at the home with cadaver dogs on October 15, 2008. The dogs hit on a scent under a work bench, but a dig in that area revealed nothing. The teen later admitting to moving both of the bodies after her mother told her that investigators were headed to the property. Both babies were moved to a different garage. The property was sold and the Rinehart’s moved on.

On January 1, 2009, investigators received another call. The new owners of the property had found two coolers…a large blue one and a small maroon one. Both containers contained the remains of a child. On Wednesday, January 21, the Cass County sheriff’s office put out a news release asking for the public’s help finding Danial Rinehart.

A tip led authorities to rural Daviess County, about 100 miles north of Harrisonville. About 10 p.m. Wednesday, Daviess County deputies went to the mobile home where authorities now think Danial Rinehart, his daughter, and her 3-year-old son had holed up for at least two weeks. The trailer was surrounded. Danial Rinehart was arrested. The 3-year-old, the one child that lived, was taken into state custody.

On Friday, Danial Rinehart, 47, was arraigned on charges of second-degree murder, endangering the welfare of a child, statutory rape, two counts of incest and two counts of accessory abandonment of a corpse. Further charges are pending. (He is being charged with second-degree murder in the death of the third child, for failing to seek medical attention). Danial admitted to the sexual abuse and told authorities that his daughter had given birth to four children, ‘two of which he was sure were his.’ He is being held on $500,000 cash only bond.

Linda Rinehart, 47, faces one count of endangering the welfare of a child. I hope to gawd that there are more charges on the way. She knew her husband was raping her child. Her husband was shacked up with their daughter, not her. She assisted in the deliveries of her own goddamn grandchildren. She was fully aware of the dead children. For fucks sake! In a vomit inducing statement, Linda told authorities that she was ‘jealous of the close relationship Danial had with her daughter.’ When asked why she didn’t leave? ‘Because I’m not good enough for anyone else.’ And…the mother of four daughters stated ‘she wanted a son so bad that even if her husband fathered the child with her daughter, she was willing to accept it. Oh. My. Gawd. She is already out on $10,000 bond.

Other family members claim to have no idea what was going on. They never knew about any babies. Danial kept the family on the move. None of the Rinehart’s four daughters ever attended school. The family lived in fear of Danial…they were told that if they ever opened their mouth, they’d be dead. As far as Linda is concerned, she was no longer living with Danial, she was more or less out on her own, and yet, she said nothing. Not a fuckin’ word. She wasn’t scared of him…bitch wasn’t even in denial. She just wanted a son. Fuck you both. Rot.

    The whole fandamily was in “Danial”

    Sick and twisted and beyond disgusting.

    How does a family of this size exist this way with no one noticing? Did they work? Did no one ever notice that FOUR girls weren’t attending school? Did no one ever need medical care? The whole thing is mind boggling!

    Kudo’s to the one daughter with enough courage to finally step up and put an end to this nightmare. God only knows how many more times this young one would have been forced to give birth to fulfill her “mothers” sick fantasy of a son. Bitch – you didn’t deserve the kids she already HAD!

    RIP babies. I agree SJ – I hope more charges are pending.

  • Uvgottabkiddin

    Hold up, I must still be sleeping cause that shit can not be real. WTF, that “mom” needs to be charged with a lot more than that!!!!! Pure stupidity should get her ass LIFE.

    Um okay, please tell me that this is a joke. How repulsive. I swear there better be more than just child endangerement. What is wrong with this woman’s brain? Does it not work? And Danial….theres a special place in hell for him. Why didnt any of the children go to the authorities earlier? This shit happened for nearly 6 years. I cant help but wonder about the daughter though….what was her deal? Serisously? She wanted a son bad enough that she would let her own “dad” be the father? Thats sick. I feel terribly sorry for the child living in this family. Atleast he is away from his sick and twisted “relatives” becuase they def. dont deserve to be called Mom, Grandma, and Grandpa. Holy me… Im done. DONE…. Cant take anymore

    Fear. The girls were terrified of the man. The abuse might have became ‘normal’ to the victim. Without any outside influence, would she know that what her father was doing to her was wrong?

    The responsibility falls squarely on the shoulders of Danial and Linda. Danial shouldn’t have been fucking his daughter and Linda shouldn’t have allowed it to happen.

    One easy explanation for the neighbors not knowing about the four not attending classes is, the parents, when queried, just say: “home schooled.” As for the rest, absolutely disgusting!

  • http://www.myspace.com/titicarie philly_phan

    How does a child molester rapist happen to have ONLY daughters and four of them at that?! OMG. Probably only got married to have kids and take them over! His wife wanted a son and he wanted daughters, got 4 of them…amazing.

    It will never cease to amaze me that women allow this to happen to their own children. He abused the entire family, not just the daughter he was raping! This is so wrong for so many reasons…No schooling? No intervention from other family members or the community? No questions being asked when a CHILD is giving birth to multiple babies one after the other? Just wild.

  • tutkill

    sick and heartless

    I want to stick him in a cooler

  • dammitall

    ’ When asked why she didn’t leave? ‘Because I’m not good enough for anyone else.’

    I’m inclined to agree with her, but now that she’s let it be known that it’s okay if the guy prongs her daughters, she’ll probably have creeps from all over the country lining up at the door.

    Why the fuck didn’t they put that child on birth control if they were going to keep on with this?

  • FlamingFox

    This shit happened for nearly 6 years. I cant help but wonder about the daughter though….what was her deal? Serisously? She wanted a son bad enough that she would let her own “dad” be the father?

    It was the mother who wanted a son, not the daughter.

    Linda told authorities that she was ‘jealous of the close relationship Danial had with her daughter.’ When asked why she didn’t leave? ‘Because I’m not good enough for anyone else.’ And…the mother of four daughters stated ’she wanted a son so bad that even if her husband fathered the child with her daughter, she was willing to accept it. Oh. My. Gawd. She is already out on $10,000 bond.

    This is just sick and amazing that it could even happen with no interference from outside the family! Those girls are messed up for the rest of their lives because of their sick and twisted POS parents. God! Really pisses me off!

  • Shizz

    Holy fucking hell.
    One of the most vile stories every posted on the DD.

    Hope that sick fuck ‘offs’ himself.

  • dammitall

    Hope that sick fuck ‘offs’ himself.

    I hope somebody else offs him. Slowly.

  • biteme

    I hope somebody else offs him. Slowly.

    they bot both need to be in jail until dead, no matter how long it takes
    guess they’re only a danger to their own family
    freaken freaks

    Hope that sick fuck ‘offs’ himself.

    That wouldn’t be brutal enough and justice will not be served. I want someone to make an example of this fucker…a national example. I want people in India, Russia, Amsterdam (all over the WORLD) and all over the USA to know his name, his face and his CRIMES. They need to make an EXAMPLE out of this child raper AND his cunt wife. I cannot even think of all the horrific things to list that we should do to them! I would want for people to have the fear of VIGILANTE-ism after this case…YOU DO NOT RAPE AND HURT CHILDREN! Forget the fact that they’re you’re own you sick fuck, ALL children are to be treasured and protected. I hate these mofo’s and these stories make me mad as hell…

    I think Linda, the mother, wanted a son. Not the daughter this “dad” was raping.

  • yogaluvr

    Ooop, Flamingfox already covered it. Sorry!

  • Coyote

    Pray for those kids, they’re going to need it.
    The parents can rot in hell, they need it too.

    The mother clearly suffers from criminally low self-esteem.

    The husband/father is one of those controlling people who cuts everybody around them down to feel big themselves. He is not going to find prison easy.

    I think maybe it was more of a case of “woe is me, I don’t want to go to jail so I will say nobody else would want me.” (cough) bullshit (cough) She left him already ! Fuck that stupid bitch.

  • Concerned Citizen

    That makes me very happy.

    Linda doesn’t deserve the body she occupies.

  • Abroad

    That makes me very happy.

    You know. I find myself smiling when thinking about this, too.

    The rest of the family, – not so much. I sincerely hope the four young women get the help they need.

  • ecvmanzo

    My concern is for his daughters. These girls were obviously brain washed. This is too sick for me to understand, and to try would mean sleepless nights. What is this world coming too?

    As far as for FuckFace Danial & Stupid Twat Linda, I hope that you pay for what you have done to those babies and your own daughters.

    Now I will go throw up

    One of my employees has a family like that. She’s 19, has a 1-year-old and another on the way, lives at home with her unemployed hispanic husband and her unemployed mom and dad. She has two younger brothers, neither of which go to school. She is the only one in the family that works. I hired and trained her late in 2006 and in that time they have lived in at least 15 different places. I’ve reported the family to DFACS a couple of times but of course they don’t do anything.

  • petrina

    well thank you all for expressing the outrage i could not exress. i woke up early, read this piece hot off the demon press, said ‘fuck me’ and went back to bed – i could not deal. so sad.

  • MadeaBecBec

    Mmmm, Same gene pool of Josef Fritzl and wife RoseMarie? It’s gotta be!
    How do they justify charging Linda with “only” endangering a child? Who’s the DA? There is some seriously sick people floating around! Whew!

  • mipmop

    This is fuking pitaful,I think and im sure some will agree, i think the fuking sick ass mom liked what was going on,nasty btch probly watch her hubby fuk her daughter and get off on it. this is beyond discusting,and these ppl should be done away with.

  • btrflyangl

    I’ve seen some fucked up shit on here, but I think so far these two take the cake. FOUR children??? What the fuck is about all I can muster right now….

  • SFM

    WTF?? sick creepy twisted fucktards! I hope they feed him exlax for days then stick a cooler up his ass and then lock him in another cooler and watch him explode. And as far as the mom is concerned-how fucked up do you have to be….they need to fry her ass too, but it would be a waste of good electricity!

  • http://dreamindemon.com skeptical

    OMG! I hope that slimeball never gets out of jail! They need to lock the mom back up too! What POS’s to do that to theirown daughter! It’s fucking disgusting!

  • captainhowdy

    Holy fucking shit. How absolutely sickening. That poor daughter…those poor babies…

    It boggles my mind, how fucking twisted some people can be. It really scares the shit out of me.

    So disgusting…I seriously feel nauseous.

  • pms.247

    Were any of the other daughters abused sexually? If not, I wonder why this one little girl was the “target” for so many years. Nothing about this story makes any sense – especialyy the mom. What the sperm donor did was horrendous and I’m sure he will pay one way or another. What the pathetic adult female in the home did was forever unforgivable. To not protect her children from any harm is unfathomable. I hope, somehow, these girls can lead a somewhat normal life.

  • darich

    I saw the daughter who called the police on tv tonight. She wants both of her parents to rot in hell too.

    If there is any justice in the afterlife, because justice here doesn’t seem to suit, he will spend eternity chained to a rock while wild, ravenous, toothless dogs rip and tear at his scrotum. Toothless because it will hurt more!! And she… her fate should be far worse. She gave her children over to this sick prick and let him do as he will. She betrayed an inherent trust that comes between a mother and child, and not just once but for years.

  • pms.247

    The oldest daughter who “blew the whistle” wants her mom to face more charges, too.

    Smart kid…apparently SHE was the adult in the household.

  • Lavonna

    This is one of the most sickening story that I have ever read! He is worse than Kenneth Freeman ( I think that is his name) who videotaped him raping his daughter.
    Sick bastards both should die.

    Linda Rinehart, charged in a Cass County incest case, did not appear in court Thursday as originally scheduled. Her preliminary hearing for child endangerment is now set for 9 a.m. March 5 in Harrisonville.

    HARRISONVILLE, Mo. — A Cass County woman whose husband was the center of an abuse and incest case was be sentenced Tuesday afternoon on charges of endangering a child’s welfare and hindering prosecution.

    The court ordered Linda Rinehart to serve seven years on the child endangerment charge and four years on the charge of hindering prosecution. Both sentences were the maximum possible on the charges.

    Rinehart pleaded guilty on Friday.

    Prosecutors said that Rinehart was aware that her husband had fathered four children with the couple’s daughter and failed to report it. Three of those four children died.

    According to a police report, Rinehart said she stayed married to Danny Rinehart because she didn’t think she was good enough to find anyone else. She also said she desperately wanted a son, even if her husband fathered the child with her daughter.
