Henderson, NV – Police say 33-year-old Edward Colucci didn’t just try to break his girlfriend’s two young sons physically, he also tried to break them emotionally. Colucci was arrested late last month, charged with child abuse, assault and kidnapping, after paramedics and police officers found his girlfriend’s 4-year-old son unconscious in the couple’s apartment. The child was suffering from severe malnutrition – so severe his hair was falling out. Dispatchers say that when the boys’ mother called 911 on November 23, she could be heard telling Colucci, “you went too far.” And she wasn’t fucking kidding. According to police, over the course of a few months, Colucci allowed the boy to eat nothing but dry ramen noodles, garlic cloves and onions. He reportedly spit in the child’s water. When the child’s mother made eye contact with the boy, Colucci reportedly viewed it as showing “too much affection” and punished the kid by punching or kicking him. Police say Colucci bit the boy’s nose, sprayed glass cleaner in his eyes and forced him to eat his own vomit. As stated in the arrest report, the psycho fuck bought presents for the boys, but later bashed their mother’s head into the floor while repeatedly saying “I love you.”

Mom claims she didn’t go to police sooner because Colucci threatened to kill her family and knock her around if she did…so she didn’t. The 4-year-old child was treated for malnutrition, the other boy, who recently turned 5, was hospitalized for severe dehydration. Both boys have been placed in protective custody. Bret Whipple, Colucci’s attorney, says his client is pleading not guilty and “looks forward to his day in court.” Many thanks for the heads-up, Dakota.

    What a sick disgusting piece of crap! But the mother is worse than this waste of space. She’s supposed to protect her children, not deliver them into the lion’s den.

    She makes me as sick as he does. I hope they charge her as well, I was a battered wife, my first husband was a monster but was NEVER allowed around my babies. My boys were 18 months and six moths old, I was Seventeen. At seventeen I took a 3 day bus ride with my babies while my husband was in JAIL where he belonged and I got our asses out of there… so yes I have been in her shoes and the feeling you have when you are a MOM is to protect your babies. She is a selfish and does not deserve her babies IMHO….
    Oh Jaded you hit a personal note for me on two stories today now I am a bit opinionated and emotional lol…Nice write ups though.

    I hope he has to sit in jail for a long time, and all the prisoners on his block break his will to live! How the hell do you do this shit to children! I mean what is wrong with him, and her… OH GOD I have a four yr old little girl and five year old boy, and the day my man hits my baby b/c we made eye contact, I swear to God would be his last day on this fucking earth… these bastards sleep ladies, take advantage…. all you need is one mother on your jury and you would be shocked at the amount of punishment you could deliver on a POS like this and get away with it.. just saying… i don’t think I could wait for the silverbacks in cellblock G (gorilla) to delve out the punishment…. not when it comes to my babies…in fact, my pic would probably be featured on D&D with a real nice writeup about some torturious shit some crazed bitch did to her man in a fit of rage (and that would be right after his crazy ass shit happened the first GD time!).

    It gets worse. This article lays out info from the police arrest report. Gag worthy.

    Edward Colucci would laugh after punching and smacking his girlfriend’s 5- and 8-year-old sons.

    The 33-year-old laughed while forcing the 5-year-old to eat vomit-covered rice.

    He would force the boys to take cold showers, stand for hours under an air conditioner turned on high while wearing next to nothing, and force them to eat dry Ramen noodles covered with salt, raw garlic and onions.

    On one occasion he forced the 5-year-old to drink a glass of salt water he had spit in.

    On another, Colucci sprayed eyeglass cleaner in the little boy’s eyes.

    What I don’t get is why these men that obviously HATE children & want nothing to do with them decide to get with women who have them & then they decide to “raise them”… I bet you these motherfuckers weren’t raised by their parents like they try to “raise” these kids.

    A public hanging for the man and the mother. Her excuse for not getting help shows exactly how selfish and self-centered she is. “cann’t get help because he may bang me around”, but its ok for not one but both of your children to take not only the beatings, but the starvation, and the begging for help. I cannot stomach weak ass women like this. I bet she ate 3 square meals, while her children ate vomit. These children cannot understand why their begging for help went unanswered by the one person who should be protecting them. I lay you odds, this mother continued to have sex with the low life as her children slept nude in the bathroom.

    I am uable to have children. And yet trash like this can reproduce repeatedly. Too many times the children pay for their parents selfishness.

  • Anonymous

    I would not say the mom needs to be charged, I think she has now had the painful lesson learned about not jumping into a relationship so fast and moving in even after the asshole got abusive. She was threatened and beaten when she tried to leave and he threatened to kill her kids, forced her to abort a child or there would be dire consequences, and the list continues. He had a choke hold on her and was wanting to break the kids too and would not allow her to even try and comfort her children. Yes her choice to be with him was definatly wrong, but I am willing to bet that she won’t make that same mistake again, not after this long line of abuse on her and her children.

    Typical obsessive jealous motherfucker, if she had have had daughters youd be seeing this fuck in jail for sexually abusing them, typical fuck that thinks all he surveys is his to command, no amount of counseling or therapy is going to change this pig so just put him to sleep so he cant hurt others, kind of like what we do to rabid dogs…

    Disgusting! And mom – you’re not much better! It’s your CHILDREN. Why did you allow them to be subjected to this? You are supposed to protect them, no matter what. The “I was scared” excuse doesn’t even hold any weight in this situation. You watched them get abused and tormented everyday and did nothing. It’s sickening. This guy is sick, sick, sick. It makes you wonder what in the world happened in his life to make him this way.

    I read the story to my kids (13 and 8 years old), they were in tears and pretty upset; also asking what we can do. Let’s see what the law is going to do.
    Also I agree with the people that said the “mother” has to be charge as well.

    As a single mom raising a boy, he was always so eager for me to find him a dad. I dated and did try to find the right match for my son. Never, ever would I have brought anyone around who was not a good influence. One’s children come first, and any man who doesn’t understand this should be out the door, with the quickness! I keep checking to see if the mother of these precious boys has been charged as well, to no avail. Any news on why she isn’t in jail? Did she have a job? She could have sought safety for the three of them. Weren’t there other family members these kids could have told? Teachers? I know they lived in a pricey area. What kind of job did Colucci have? So many questions, as this was not a one-time incident, but something apparently on-going…for how long? Thankfully, the boys did not die. I only hope they will survive as unscarred as they can. They are still young. I hope family will step in to raise them, seek professional help. I am a teacher, and I love my students as family. It seems unbelievable that no one had stepped in before the 911 call. Pat in Las Vegas

  • http://www.smartbusinessowners.com/blog Merlyn Sanchez

    Yeah, I’m willing to bet she won’t make the same mistake again if authorities have enough sense to take the children away from her sorry ass.

    A mistake is entering a relationship with someone who hits or mistreats your children once. Not STAYING with someone who has committed the laundry lists of atrocities.

  • Anonymous

    Okay I will agree she should have left, but AGAIN as it said in the article that when she did try to leave he beat the fuck outta her in front of her kids and threatened to kill her kids if she did leave. So given the fact the ass hat was willing to go that far in front of her kids I can fully understand why she was scared and why it took so long to call the police. She will pay a price for sure for her mistake but seeing it from her point of view is a start too. I am sure that on this site there are women who have been in relationships that were violent and to say that leaving the abuser was beyond terrifying cause they were not sure HOW the abuser would respond. Would they carry out their threats? Would they wuss out like this guy did when she finally called the cops? I am sure that she beats herself up and will continue to do so knowing she put her children in peril by being with this creep, but I am willing to bet she will be more careful in the future with whom she shares a home with.

  • Anonymous

    Um she did try to protect them repetedly and was beaten so bad in front of her kids. Read the full frigging article. She didn’t “stand” there, she did try to protect them and was given a beating and threat of death to her and her kids if she tried to intervene again.

  • Anonymous

    She didn’t try hard enough. He wasn’t awake 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I’m sure he also had to go to work sometime. There was plenty of times she was left alone. Could she not find the damn door? Could she not open a window and yell for a neighbor to call the police? Your defending her makes me strongly suspect you are a relative. If so, I’m sorry you are kin to such a waste of a person. If she had at ANY point in time contacted the police, they would have helped her. She chose not to. She failed those babies and doesn’t deserve them. I hope while he was at it he “forced” her to get her damn tubes tied.

  • Anonymous

    So let me get this straight, because I am not agreeing with everyone saying that she is a horrible mom and needs to be hung, or put in jail or sterilized I have to be a relative? Lol, omfg. Such a closed minded response and would not expect anything more. I do not know this lady, but have a mom that worked in a jail for almost thirteen years. She not only dealt with shitbags like this man but with the women who sometimes didn’t leave in time to save themselves or their children. Believe me when I say it is NOT as easy as it seems to leave abusive relationships. She sometimes wanted to slap these women but the only reason she knew there was more to them than giving such closed minded judgements cause she herself was in a relationship like that, but not as severe as most of them. Abusers can break their victims mentally or instill fear in them so bad that they are scared to even consider leaving. She did try on different occassions to leave and was beaten, threatened with her life and her childrens lives (in front of them too read the article). And btw, it mentions that at points he would make sure she didnt try to help them in the middle of the night and also kept the children out of school as to hide the abuse. He used not only abuse but psychological terror tactics on her. Her punishment is going to have to be having to look her children in the eyes and say sorry over and over and over again for all that happened but it will never be enough to erase the nightmares these kids will have for a lifetime.

    Because they’re pathetic, twisted, sadistic bastards who enjoy hurting helpless children. What’s more appalling is that they don’t seem to have any trouble finding women who are willing to provide them with victims.

  • Janelle

    She should have left the first time it happened. There should never be a second time when it comes to your children. My poodle once bit someone who grabbed my daughter to give her a hug. A mother should be at least as protective as my dog. A good mom would watch how a man reacts to her children and treats them before she even takes the big step to move in with him! Not only should she have made that 911 call LONG before she did, she should NEVER let it happen in the first place. It may not be easy to leave an abusive relationship, but it should be even harder to watch your children being hurt and tormented day after day!

    Not so long ago Oprah did a special on women who survived domestic abuse and who had children who suffered physical abuse or mental abuse as well. One woman in particular was under control of her husband so thoroughly that she dared not leave, and he even had the kids brain washed so much so that they would video tape the abuse when asked to by the father as he beat her, choked her and threatened to kill her. He verbally assaulted her in front of her children and the kids were either to scared to say anything or brainwashed into thinking that she deserved it for years. It was her friend that actually got her out of that situation along with her children and they are still in therapy years later due to the violence and abuse they saw each day. To sit there and say that she could have ran, could have done this or that is easier to say than do. This lady I speak of even went to work sore from beatings sometimes sporting a black eye. her abuser would call her at work and demean her more and threaten her and verbally assault her. that is how much control he had on her and she was scared to death if she did leave if he would turn his anger on her children…that is called fear pure and simple. And that kind of fear is controlling. The fact that this asshole almost killed her child in one of his beating sessions was what motivated her to finally call out for help. Her really big mistake was her choice in thinking a man she met online was safe, and she even moved into his home too soon. If anything she can be shamed for jumping in too fast with this loser. I have a feeling that this man assumed as long as he had her scared and beat up she would not ever call for help. His actions that led to the child being unconsious is what finally got him caught. He even begged her not to tell the cops he did these things. Typical bully. All cocky until they get caught and get punished. In the future if this woman does not lose her children I hope she remembers vividly what happened and realizes that having a man in your life is not the most important thing right now. Her kids should be her main focus and getting counceling for them as well as herself, in hopes of having somewhat of a normal life and learn from this mistake. Just like the woman who Oprah interviewed sometimes it either takes outside intervention or a near fatal tragedy to leave that situation.

    She moved from Utah to be with him in Las Vegas so I bet the fact she had no support there other than her children and probably was kept from having friends since this tool is a jealous freak. I can see how he would use the fact that she was living in a place where she had no one but him, and used that fact to get control of her quickly. It’s the sad fact that she was not thinking when she moved away from people she knew and some kind of support to live with a man she barely knew along with her children. For making that mistake she will have to live with it for the rest of her life.

    It’s so easy to be judgmental.

    The thing about sadistic fucks like this is that they specifically seek out the weakest in the herd. They find women who are pre-broken, scared and vulnerable (and, often, not terribly bright – remember, we are NOT all created equally). Then they go to great lengths to make this woman completely dependent on them. GREAT lengths. This shit is calculated.

    People are underestimating the psychology involved, here. To tell a woman to “just leave” is like telling an alcoholic to “just quit”. The power their abuser wields over them is an incredible thing to witness, not entirely unlike chemical dependency.

  • http://www.smartbusinessowners.com/blog Merlyn Sanchez

    Could not agree with you more! If your children are in danger, you do ANYTHING to get them out of that situation.

  • http://www.smartbusinessowners.com/blog Merlyn Sanchez

    We are responsible for our actions or inactions unless there are extenuating circumstances. To watch as your children are repeatedly and sadistically tortured, goes beyond the usual reasons women stay in abusive relationships.

    She was his enabler, but for her, he wouldn’t have gotten his hands on these children. There are plenty of broken, scared women of below average intelligence who put up with all sorts of abuse but draw the line at allowing this kind of abuse to take place.

    We can continue to judge but until any of us has a talk with someone that has been physically/mentally abused to the point of brainwashing we can never really say we can not say she did not care at all since she tried to get away and to save her kids. I am not saying every woman who has been posted on here is an angel or should not be held accountable for their actions that lead to their child’s abuse or demise, but there are those out there that are guilty of making just a really bad choice and will be paying a price for a long time to come. Each time she looks at her kids there will be no amount of apologies or hugs or kisses that can erase the trauma this man inflicted on them. Yes we are responsible for our children and keeping them safe even if it means sacrificing our own lives to save them. One question though, had she went ahead and died trying to protect her kids do you really believe that asshole would have let them live anyhow? I am glad we did not have to find out.

  • Athena

    You don’t think there were extenuating circumstances, here? Let me paint a picture for you…

    Your boyfriend has been abusing you for awhile, but now he’s started in on your children, and you realize you HAVE TO get away. But you don’t have a dime you can call your own. No access to a bank account, no car, no family or friends in the area – you realize just how screwed you are to have trusted this guy who was Prince fucking Charming for months before he started in.

    You could call the cops right now, but this guy has threatened to KILL your children; he has money and you have no escape. What’s to stop this guy from bailing out that day and coming back for you and your children? You’ve heard stories of exactly that happening. You need a game plan, but it’s going to take you a couple of weeks, maybe a month to gather the resources to ensure you could safeguard your children. In the meantime, you’ll just try to save your children from as much abuse as you can. It’s better than them being murdered, right?

    This isn’t some fucking movie plot. Exactly this is playing out in the mind of some woman in this country as we speak, in all likelihood.

    We don’t know that this is what happened, but we don’t know that mom wasn’t thinking she was saving her children from the worse of two evils. That’s all I’m sayin’.

    She was on her own with her kids in Nevada all the way from Utah. No family, friends or anyone she could turn to who could be there to help her. Not to mention if he is a control freak he probably rationed her gas in her car, gave her only enough money to get groceries and probably monitored her phone calls/internet use. Yes I am saying this guy would more than likely go that damn far. I can only hope he gets his just deserts in prison or maybe karma will see fit to have him drop dead and save any other poor soul from having the misfortune of going through what this woman and her children endured.

  • Anonymous

    I think he got her in that proverbial corner since she had no one near by she could turn to and no family there in Nevada. That is probably what made her easier to control that and the fact he would have killed her kids had he succeeded in killing her when she tried to help her sons. She had to have realized that too, which means he had her between a rock and a hard place. She doesn’t fight back or try to escape with her kids and they get beaten or she dies trying to escape and her kids are murdered too. Tough choices to make.

    This guy treated the children worse than prisoners. This guy could not have been there 24/7 and the mother, also just plain unfeeling to her children’s wellbeing, put up with this crap.

    Many women, even on this site, have walked in her shoes. There are shelters the police could have gotten this woman to that would have hidden her and her children from him until she could get help from her family back home or even friends. There are also places (churches and other programs) who would have donated money to her to get her home, safe.. far away from him, to someone who could have also hidden her while the courts dealt with him.

    My birth mother left state with me shortly after I was born, chasing a boyfriend. I was an abused baby as a result. Child Protective services stepped in and helped me because she wouldn’t. I’m one of the lucky ones, I survived but I was not left without scars. I grew up having a hard time trusting, still do and believe me the trust issue is the most minor of the emotional scars I carry. If the abuse I endured had that life long effect on me at such a young age, what do you suppose her kids are going to be dealing with? I also landed in abusive relationships, which I got out of. Know what I never did? I never allowed a child mine or not to be abused around me. Why? Because as an adult we’re suppose to protect the children. She had resources that could have helped and would have had she reached out.

    Call me close minded, I don’t care. Because the fact remains she allowed it to continue. She could have gotten out the first time he put hands on her (I highly doubt she was brainwashed as you call it at that point). She stayed. She could have caught him at work and took her kids and walked to a pay phone and called 911 the first time he did anything to her kids. She didn’t. There is no excuse to allow a child.. any child to suffer the way she did. As for her dying to protect her kids, at least then she’d have some pity and respect but to be honest, it didn’t even have to come to that. She could just as easily killed him, and gotten away with it. Most jury members are parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles too, and would have gladly let her off. I wonder how many of her family and friends where she came from would have just as gladly to have came and got her while he was gone, how much pain and suffering those children could have been spared. Guess we’ll never know since she flat out chose not to reach out to anyone. Not the police and not them.

I wonder how many of her family and friends where she came from would have just as gladly to have came and got her while he was gone, how much pain and suffering those children could have been spared. Guess we’ll never know since she flat out chose not to reach out to anyone. Not the police and not them.

    Many women, even on this site, have walked in her shoes. There are shelters the police could have gotten this woman to that would have hidden her and her children from him until she could get help from her family back home or even friends. There are also places (churches and other programs) who would have donated money to her to get her home, safe.. far away from him, to someone who could have also hidden her while the courts dealt with him.

    My birth mother left state with me shortly after I was born, chasing a boyfriend. I was an abused baby as a result. Child Protective services stepped in and helped me because she wouldn’t. I’m one of the lucky ones, I survived but I was not left without scars. I grew up having a hard time trusting, still do and believe me the trust issue is the most minor of the emotional scars I carry. If the abuse I endured had that life long effect on me at such a young age, what do you suppose her kids are going to be dealing with? I also landed in abusive relationships, which I got out of. Know what I never did? I never allowed a child mine or not to be abused around me. Why? Because as an adult we’re suppose to protect the children. She had resources that could have helped and would have had she reached out.

    Call me close minded, I don’t care. Because the fact remains she allowed it to continue. She could have gotten out the first time he put hands on her (I highly doubt she was brainwashed as you call it at that point). She stayed. She could have caught him at work and took her kids and walked to a pay phone and called 911 the first time he did anything to her kids. She didn’t. There is no excuse to allow a child.. any child to suffer the way she did.

There are shelters the police could have gotten this woman to that would have hidden her and her children from him until she could get help from her family back home or even friends. There are also places (churches and other programs) who would have donated money to her to get her home, safe.. far away from him, to someone who could have also hidden her while the courts dealt with him.

    My birth mother left state with me shortly after I was born, chasing a boyfriend. I was an abused baby as a result. Child Protective services stepped in and helped me because she wouldn’t. I’m one of the lucky ones, I survived but I was not left without scars. I grew up having a hard time trusting, still do and believe me the trust issue is the most minor of the emotional scars I carry. If the abuse I endured had that life long effect on me at such a young age, what do you suppose her kids are going to be dealing with? I also landed in abusive relationships, which I got out of. Know what I never did? I never allowed a child mine or not to be abused around me. Why? Because as an adult we’re suppose to protect the children. She had resources that could have helped and would have had she reached out.

    Call me close minded, I don’t care. Because the fact remains she allowed it to continue. She could have gotten out the first time he put hands on her (I highly doubt she was brainwashed as you call it at that point). She stayed. She could have caught him at work and took her kids and walked to a pay phone and called 911 the first time he did anything to her kids. She didn’t. There is no excuse to allow a child.. any child to suffer the way she did. As for her dying to protect her kids, at least then she’d have some pity and respect but to be honest, it didn’t even have to come to that. She could just as easily killed him, and gotten away with it. Most jury members are parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles too, and would have gladly let her off. I wonder how many of her family and friends where she came from would have just as gladly to have came and got her while he was gone, how much pain and suffering those children could have been spared. Guess we’ll never know since she flat out chose not to reach out to anyone. Not the police and not them.

I grew up having a hard time trusting, still do and believe me the trust issue is the most minor of the emotional scars I carry. If the abuse I endured had that life long effect on me at such a young age, what do you suppose her kids are going to be dealing with? I also landed in abusive relationships, which I got out of. Know what I never did? I never allowed a child mine or not to be abused around me. Why? Because as an adult we’re suppose to protect the children. She had resources that could have helped and would have had she reached out.

    Call me close minded, I don’t care. Because the fact remains she allowed it to continue. She could have gotten out the first time he put hands on her (I highly doubt she was brainwashed as you call it at that point). She stayed. She could have caught him at work and took her kids and walked to a pay phone and called 911 the first time he did anything to her kids. She didn’t. There is no excuse to allow a child.. any child to suffer the way she did. As for her dying to protect her kids, at least then she’d have some pity and respect but to be honest, it didn’t even have to come to that. She could just as easily killed him, and gotten away with it. Most jury members are parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles too, and would have gladly let her off. I wonder how many of her family and friends where she came from would have just as gladly to have came and got her while he was gone, how much pain and suffering those children could have been spared. Guess we’ll never know since she flat out chose not to reach out to anyone. Not the police and not them.

    Many women, even on this site, have walked in her shoes. There are shelters the police could have gotten this woman to that would have hidden her and her children from him until she could get help from her family back home or even friends. There are also places (churches and other programs) who would have donated money to her to get her home, safe.. far away from him, to someone who could have also hidden her while the courts dealt with him.

She had resources that could have helped and would have had she reached out.

    Call me close minded, I don’t care. Because the fact remains she allowed it to continue. She could have gotten out the first time he put hands on her (I highly doubt she was brainwashed as you call it at that point). She stayed. She could have caught him at work and took her kids and walked to a pay phone and called 911 the first time he did anything to her kids. She didn’t. There is no excuse to allow a child.. any child to suffer the way she did. As for her dying to protect her kids, at least then she’d have some pity and respect but to be honest, it didn’t even have to come to that. She could just as easily killed him, and gotten away with it. Most jury members are parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles too, and would have gladly let her off. I wonder how many of her family and friends where she came from would have just as gladly to have came and got her while he was gone, how much pain and suffering those children could have been spared. Guess we’ll never know since she flat out chose not to reach out to anyone. Not the police and not them.

    Many women, even on this site, have walked in her shoes. There are shelters the police could have gotten this woman to that would have hidden her and her children from him until she could get help from her family back home or even friends. There are also places (churches and other programs) who would have donated money to her to get her home, safe.. far away from him, to someone who could have also hidden her while the courts dealt with him.

    My birth mother left state with me shortly after I was born, chasing a boyfriend. I was an abused baby as a result. Child Protective services stepped in and helped me because she wouldn’t. I’m one of the lucky ones, I survived but I was not left without scars. I grew up having a hard time trusting, still do and believe me the trust issue is the most minor of the emotional scars I carry.

She could have caught him at work and took her kids and walked to a pay phone and called 911 the first time he did anything to her kids. She didn’t. There is no excuse to allow a child.. any child to suffer the way she did. As for her dying to protect her kids, at least then she’d have some pity and respect but to be honest, it didn’t even have to come to that. She could just as easily killed him, and gotten away with it. Most jury members are parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles too, and would have gladly let her off. I wonder how many of her family and friends where she came from would have just as gladly to have came and got her while he was gone, how much pain and suffering those children could have been spared. Guess we’ll never know since she flat out chose not to reach out to anyone. Not the police and not them.

    Many women, even on this site, have walked in her shoes. There are shelters the police could have gotten this woman to that would have hidden her and her children from him until she could get help from her family back home or even friends. There are also places (churches and other programs) who would have donated money to her to get her home, safe.. far away from him, to someone who could have also hidden her while the courts dealt with him.

    My birth mother left state with me shortly after I was born, chasing a boyfriend. I was an abused baby as a result. Child Protective services stepped in and helped me because she wouldn’t. I’m one of the lucky ones, I survived but I was not left without scars. I grew up having a hard time trusting, still do and believe me the trust issue is the most minor of the emotional scars I carry. If the abuse I endured had that life long effect on me at such a young age, what do you suppose her kids are going to be dealing with? I also landed in abusive relationships, which I got out of. Know what I never did? I never allowed a child mine or not to be abused around me. Why? Because as an adult we’re suppose to protect the children. She had resources that could have helped and would have had she reached out.

She could just as easily killed him, and gotten away with it. Most jury members are parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles too, and would have gladly let her off. I wonder how many of her family and friends where she came from would have just as gladly to have came and got her while he was gone, how much pain and suffering those children could have been spared. Guess we’ll never know since she flat out chose not to reach out to anyone. Not the police and not them.

    Many women, even on this site, have walked in her shoes. There are shelters the police could have gotten this woman to that would have hidden her and her children from him until she could get help from her family back home or even friends. There are also places (churches and other programs) who would have donated money to her to get her home, safe.. far away from him, to someone who could have also hidden her while the courts dealt with him.

    My birth mother left state with me shortly after I was born, chasing a boyfriend. I was an abused baby as a result. Child Protective services stepped in and helped me because she wouldn’t. I’m one of the lucky ones, I survived but I was not left without scars. I grew up having a hard time trusting, still do and believe me the trust issue is the most minor of the emotional scars I carry. If the abuse I endured had that life long effect on me at such a young age, what do you suppose her kids are going to be dealing with? I also landed in abusive relationships, which I got out of. Know what I never did? I never allowed a child mine or not to be abused around me. Why? Because as an adult we’re suppose to protect the children. She had resources that could have helped and would have had she reached out.

    Call me close minded, I don’t care. Because the fact remains she allowed it to continue. She could have gotten out the first time he put hands on her (I highly doubt she was brainwashed as you call it at that point). She stayed. She could have caught him at work and took her kids and walked to a pay phone and called 911 the first time he did anything to her kids. She didn’t.

    i agree with some of you about her leaving- it’s not that easy. a woman in my town left her abuser and snuck off to a shelter for battered women— guess who found her- broke into the shelter and shot her right then & there? her husband. it’s a fact when a woman leaves or tries to leave- that is when she is at the highest risk.

    however- the thing i have trouble with in this sickening case- is the woman had no problem calling 911 in front of the big bully. that action being done in front of him…seems not to jive with fearing for her life and the lives of her children
    but hey, I wasnt there so i dont know what all she was going through.

    thankfully these boys are away from this creep and i hope they are getting lots of much needed therapy. this story just makes me ill.

    “One question though, had she went ahead and died trying to protect her kids do you really believe that asshole would have let them live anyhow? I am glad we did not have to find out.”

    She could have gone to the police. He may have killed her and the kids but he was already well on his way to killing the children if she stayed.

    It’s really a moot point right now because we’re all making assumptions and judging this woman. We don’t really know if her version of the story is true or not. We’re running through a lot of possible scenarios which may or may not apply.

    If her story is true, then I’m not saying she should be branded, executed or tarred and feathered. I’m not even sure she should face criminal charges since I don’t know all the details.

    I do believe that she should lose custody because she clearly has issues that put her children in jeopardy.

    As far as thinking that she’s saving them from being murdered, I’d say they were already well on their way to being murdered.

    I’ve seen too many cases of men and women putting their children in harm’s way and it’s disturbing.

    I got curious so I found another article on the case:
    http://www.lvrj.com/news/valley-man-arrested-faces-13-charges-in-horrific-child-abuse-case-112707389.html?viewAllComments=y&c=y

    From the article:

    “The boys’ mother met Colucci on the social networking web site MySpace in 2009. After a year of correspondence and several meetings, she and her two children moved to the valley from Utah.

    According to the arrest report, the physical and mental abuse of the woman began almost immediately.

    Yet in April she and the boys moved in with Colucci.”

    So she has two small children and decides it’s a good idea to hook up long-distance with a guy she meets on the internet.

    He’s an abusive a-hole from the get-go but she still moves in with him. Removing her children from their home and taking them across country where it appears she has no friends or family.

    The abuse goes on for 8-months.

    She sounds like a victim of her need to have a man, any man, in her life.Maybe she should have worried more about rearing her children than finding a boyfriend.

    True. But we’ve also seen too many cases of mom stepping aside while the boyfriend finishes the job. I just think this mom probably deserves a little credit for not letting it get to that when so many others do.

    Yup, nothing like a good reality check to keep the kiddies in line…….*eyerolls*.

    Honestly, I don’t sugarcoat shit when it comes to my kids. I believe in being brutally honest with them about life issues, but only only when appropriate. Hmmm, I wonder which DD story would be fitting to share with my 17 year old son who has no job, doesn’t think he needs to finish grade 12, and threatens to run away every time he gets in trouble. Something that will make him cry and realize how stupid he’s being…….

    I’m open for suggestions. :P

    Athena this story reminds me of Dominick Calhoune. It took me a long time to stop thinking about what happened to that little fellow. I’m glad this story didnt end the same way because it was going to if someone didn’t do something. This lady should never have put herself so far away from home to be with some guy she met online. She probably never has been good at making decisions I bet this will make her think twice before she decides to throw caution to the wind. You should allways put your kids needs before your own she would have been alot better off buying a vibrator.

    My mom dated a while when we were just toddlers and after leaving a mentally abusive and sometimes physically abusive marriage she was very careful as to who met us kids. One man in particular got very annoyed with us around and would make rude comments. One day I think he said something very cruel to my brother who was only 5 at the time, and my mom took him by the arm marched his butt to the door and said goodbye. She said that this guy was becoming increasingly controlling and mean towards her and us. I am so damn happy she showed him the door. I wonder what would have happened had she not been brave about showing him the door.

    As I commented earlier, It played out in my mind and I was ONLY sixteen when I married my abuser and had my first son. Soon after, he moved me from NJ to Texas, I left my whole family and had No One, where I had my second son at seventeen whom I can not believe survived the pregnancy as much as I was getting beat throughout. My receipts were checked when I went food shopping and if there was traffic I got my Ass kicked. When his drunk ass lost his wallet in a pair of his own pants, I was awakened by a punch in the face and “where is it”
    One night he was beating the holy hell out of me and my second son was laying on his receiving blanket….I could not stop him no matter what I cried, I was quiet, I just Snapped and pulled a knife out of my kitchen drawer of course he grabbed it from me when I hesitated (I didn’t want to hurt him I just wanted to scare him off) He grabbed it and threw it across the room. It Landed within inches of my babies head and That Was My Line I didn’t even know I drew…..The police came because of the screaming they took one look at me and it was a crime scene ….He was arrested and pictures were taken of the scene….He would never hurt my babies and I was ONLY Seventeen. This is not OPRAH this is real and happens to so many…There are FREE battered womens shelters the police will get you to even in Vegas. F@ck her she should have protected her babies like I had to find the strength to do. AND NO I Was not raised well I was battered and abused as a child so really no more excuses for her….

    Oh and the abuse never stopped…I took a bus to NJ with my babies 3 days later and a month after that he skipped out in Tx…he stalked me for 8 years and did 3 more stints in jail in Jersey. I still protected my babies throughout and they are 20 and 19 now. He did stop really until he died of an OD in 2001.

    I am very sympathetic for the terror and helplessness that must surely overtake ostensibly loving and caring mothers who are living in a hellhole of domestic violence, but I take exception to your citing that particular Oprah episode.

    THAT woman was brutalized, abused, and attacked for years on end. The big difference was that her husband was the father of two of the three children (and had long functioned as the father of the oldest) and the moment of clarity for her (and I recall this quite clearly because it was in fact a QUITE gripping story) came when while her husband had the middle-school aged son videotape his harangue and abuse of the mother he said to the kid, “Do you see that? That is where you are heading if you don’t shape up.” The boy had not been allowed to attend some extracurricular school function as a punishment for misbehavior, he had not been beaten, tied to a chair, and verbally assaulted for hours on end as the mother had been. It was when she heard the father (her abuser and husband) tell the kid that he would end up like HER that she finally realized that she had to get out. He did NOT beat, starve, and assault the children.

    I want to believe that this is a loving mother who f**ked up seriously. As a loving mother who feels guilty when I lose my cool and yell at my kids, I can’t imagine being so far removed from my desire to protect and nurture them that I would allow them to be treated in a way that would make me cry if this monster were doing it to a hamster.

    Thank you Athena, I’m trying to see it, but it’s really hard from where I sit, with a career, self-esteem intact, and family members who could be at my side with weapons if necessary to help me and my kids…

    In the end, I AM grateful that her ability to rescue the kids kicked in and she finally called 911 before any of them wound up dead. Hopefully it’s all over except for the therapy and and a nice lengthy sentence for the inhuman wastoid in the mugshot.

    I know as well as any woman how hard it is to understand, being a career woman who has never endured abuse myself, enjoying a long term relationship founded on mutual respect and compassion. The plight of the abused woman would be as foreign to me as anything if I hadn’t had the unfortunate opportunity to witness it.

    And, truly, the best I can do is liken it to severe drug addiction. Some individuals are simply more prone to it than others. Some people can smoke meth every weekend for a year and walk away unscathed and unaddicted at the end of it. Other people smoke it once and find themselves hopelessly hooked. Physical abuse seems to work similarly. Some women can get hit once and be out, never looking back. Other women can get abused daily and can’t find it within themselves to break away until it’s too late. Others still are repeatedly able to break away only to find themselves in the arms of yet another abuser, over and over and over again.

    I don’t know how or why people find themselves in these situations. It’s surely a combination of genetics and environmental conditioning that leads to the tendency to be abused. I don’t know why this woman didn’t go to the cops sooner. But what I do know is that I can’t sit here and agree with those who want to see her strung up when, ultimately, she did put her self at risk to protect her kids. I guess I’m with the “better late than never” crowd.

    who ever JGo555 is , he/she is 100% correct. he is from syracuse NY and is a well known woman beater. he is always been a shady person, dealing drugs, living off his wealthy parents, never holding a fucking job in his life. he is a pathetic piece of shit – always has been and always will be. by the way he is also a cross dresser,

    Damn, why couldn’t we get a picture of him dressed as a woman! Now THAT would’ve almost made it worth the trauma you have to subject yourself to in order to stomach this article…

    Boy, when you bring up Dominick you touch a really sore spot with me. He faintly resembles my little fellow, but something about the pathetic nature of his story, the extended suffering when there were multiple opportunities to save him and the utter inexcusability of his “mother’s” actions really ripped me apart.

    This is almost as bad in many ways.

    I hope he gets raped and killed in jail

    Dominick Calhoune, Ethan Stacy, John Garwacki ect.. These are stories that still haunt me. They may not be my kids but they are all around my sons age. There was even a picture posted of John Garwacki where he was wearing the same exact baseball pajama outfit my son used to wear when he could fit into a 2-3T. It’s so depressing I’m just happy the kids will live to see another day after suffering so much abuse for once. I tell myself not to burden myself with things like this but I can’t help it.

    Unless you’ve been the victim of verbal, psychologicl/emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse – it’s really easy to sit back and say “Why didn’t she leave?” “She could have/should have gotten help.”, etc. Not saying this really fully exonerates her from not protecting these poor boys, but it’s easy for all of us to sit here and say “I would NEVER allow that to happen”…well, you just don’t know.

    “Women in abusive relationships are six times likelier to be killed during or after leaving their abusers, and so “why doesn’t she just leave” is not as simple as it sounds and establishing an escape plan with the help of an expert is a critical component.” from violenceunsilenced.com

    Give me just five minutes with this pussy-ass loser, and I’ll gladly break him of his child-beating ways. Well, maybe an hour…but that’s purely for my own pleasure in “breaking” him.

    Part of the reason she didnt go to the cops was fear of him knocking her around? Did she not think him bashing her head into the floor was part of knocking her around?
    I hope they both recv life sentences. The horror those 2 kids have gone through, the horror they will still face emotionally, mentally, physically….life in prison/death in prison, it’ll never equal to the abuse they inflicted on their own innocent children.

    I hope to God that woman gets charged right along with him. It is a mothers responsibility to protect her children, If anyone so much as raises a hand to my son I’m knocking their asses to the ground. There is no man worth the life of your child. Bitch doesn’t deserve to be called a mother.

    “not much better”?? Did you read the article all the way through, or what you wrote??? Just wondering…How good is a mother at protecting her children if she is dead??? Logically thinking, someone capable of these atrocities is, in all reality, probably capable of killing as well…Look at the Cracker Barrel incident…
    http://www.dreamindemon.com/2012/04/16/angry-father-executes-family-cracker-barrel/…mom DID try to leave abusive husband and what did it accomplish??? Both herself, AND the CHILDREN she was protecting being blown to pieces with a shotgun…Casting stones whether you have, or have not, been in the same sort of situation is not always the right road to take a walk down.

    unfortunately, not everyone has a home to begin with…

    You mYou stayed through a first child, while being beat…and don’t think watching mama get beat as a child isn’t abuse in and of itself, regardless of the age of the child….and then you stayed long enough to have your SECOND child with the POS…you even said yourself ” 
    where I had my second son at seventeen whom I can not believe survived the pregnancy as much as I was getting beat throughout.” Are you fucking kidding me??? Who are you to cast stones when you sat there and let someone abuse their child before he was even born?! You said it yourself, he could have KILLED your child while it was still inside you, yet you put that baby at SEVERE risk for 8+ months (if he/she was even term), and still did not leave…again, WHO ARE YOU TO THROW STONES???
