Jayme Beall, apparently upset with her crotch fruits’ incessant cursing and misbehaving, packed them a bag and escorted them out the front door around 7:00 Monday evening.
When she went outside to retrieve them about 20 minutes later, they were gone. It was then that she freaked and called 911.
“She was scared, nervous, frantic trying to find her children through the (trailer) park,” said neighbor Robin Cornelius. “She was searching hard.”
A search of the neighborhood and the surrounding area by foot and by air proved fruitless. Seems the brothers, ages 13 and 9, had hitched a ride on U.S. 1 to I-95 where they then called their grandmother. Five hours after they disappeared, grandma called authorities to let them know the boys were safely in her custody in Boynton Beach, a good 70 miles away.
Beall told police she’d previously had trouble with her older child, claiming the kid had run away before and had a bad habit of acting violent toward her. And the 9-year-old? He apparently has a potty mouth and a shitty attitude. Beall said both boys had been acting up since their recent move to the trailer park. Her neighbors agree.
“The way they talk to her is bad, abusive sometimes hitting her, leaving bruises and things like this,” Cornelius said. “It’s very rough for her because they don’t want to listen and the way the law is you can’t touch your children so it kind of makes it rough for them.”
Sheriff Ken Mascara said Beall placed her children in danger by kicking them out, adding that everyone involved is lucky the boys made it safely to grandma’s house.
“Just a bad parenting decision and in addition that night she had been drinking and was inebriated,” Sheriff Mascara added. “Just a poor decision.”
That poor decision landed her behind bars….she’s been charged with felony child abuse. She has since been released and is reportedly in the process of trying to reclaim her children.Tags: Child Abuse, Florida, Jayme Beall
