Bransen LocksLas Vegas, NV  — A 36-year-old meth addict has been officially charged with the murder of his girlfriend’s 1-year-old son.

Cassandra Hamilton knew Bransen Locks for a couple of months and had been dating for two weeks when she allowed him to babysit her 5-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son at his mother’s house on May 19.

In the early morning hours, after Locks had picked up the children from daycare, Locks’ mother called 911 when her son frantically pounded on her bedroom door yelling, “Mom, Mom, get up. Help me. The baby’s not breathing.”

Medical personnel noted that Bently Olsen was suffering from severe head injuries, including bleeding on the brain and a “noticeable mid-line shift of the brain.” There was also a red abrasion on the top of his head that looked recent.

When police tried to question Locks about the boy’s condition, he could not be found at the hospital. He had taken off and was found a couple hours later hiding in a crawlspace beneath his house like a sniveling coward. He was placed under arrest for outstanding warrants.

Bently would die from his injuries a week later and doctors concluded those injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome. Doctors told detectives his injuries likely occurred just prior to arriving at the hospital and that even had Olsen survived, he would’ve been “neurologically devastated.”

Olsen’s sister told police that Locks hurt her brother’s head on “brave pokies” inside a tree house – whatever the hell that means. Locks’ mother said that it had been a rough year on her son because of his drug problem and that she suspected him of using crystal meth.

Locks has now officially been charged with first degree murder by child abuse and child abuse with substantial bodily harm. He’s also being charged with child abuse for killing and/or causing the death of Bently in front of his sister.

    Wow very sad day on the DD 🙁

  • The egg donor is a fucking idiot, mom sounds like she’s been making excuses for her wank of a son, and this douchebag needs his testicles cut off with a rusty butter knife and shoved down his meth mouth. (Sorry for the run-on.)

  • as Dr Phil would always say, children who live with a man who is not their real father are 33 more likely to suffer abuse, or in the case murder. poor baby

  • keridilley

    It’s official if I ever break up with my husband I’m staying single. Way too many of these stories. I don’t trust anyone with my kid because of this site.

  • Evan

    this guys photo looks familiar. not sure why. and the story is def. familiar —> new BF on meth kills kids. Hey I’m just glad this poor baby didn’t have other injuries (e.g. rape, burns, 19 broken bones…ya know the usual)

  • So the mom knew this shit head for a couple of months and only dating for two weeks and she let’s him baby sit!!!!!????? WTH…. stupid ass mom, I have a feeling she knew he was on drugs. She needs to be charged with being a dumb ass. Another “mom” who chooses dick over her baby

  • MadcapMama

    I understand that working mothers have a hard time finding childcare (especially affordable care), but when will people learn that you just CAN NOT leave your kids with some dude you’ve been dating for a damn month!! She has a responsibility to her children to find them safe childcare and she failed miserably.

  • Hope he dies in prison a painful death.

  • Lock them both up!! .. him for murder .. her for stupidity

  • brandi

    Please, lets protect our children from this. 2 weeks is not long enough to know someone before you put your child in their hands.

  • Assholes!

  • Eliza Berntsen

    Colour me surprised. Mum’s flavour of the month kills her child. Nop, has never happened before.

  • Eliza Berntsen

    I thought so too. It’s like I have seen him before, just don’t know where.

  • CT

    So “brave pokies” is the new euphemism for beating the holy fucking shit out of a baby?

  • Athena

    It’s not that hard to find a man who won’t kill your kids.

    Don’t stay single… just stay smart.

  • Natasha Fatale

    i find dating a man longer the TWO WEEKS before they meet your kids really helps.. Don’t let men into your kids lives until it’s very serious and it’s “time” In the 7 years since my divorce my kids have only met one of the many men I dated and only because we had been dating over a year and I thought it was time.. Unfortunately he wasn’t the one 🙁

  • Texas Ranger

    Yeah!! We are all over the place!

  • Texas Ranger


  • Texas Ranger

    Really? I thought it was some kind of sandwich or chips, or maybe a cookie…I guess that shows I don’t have an evil mind.

  • Texas Ranger

    I agree. I tie mine to the dog, Safe and sound they are.

  • Leasha

    CHARGE THIS PIECE OF SHIT’S MOTHER, TOO! Stupid cunt felt no need to mention to her son’s new gf that he had a drug problem and was still using. Nice. She’s JUST as guilty as he, I don’t give a fuck if SHE gave him CPR, SHE could have prevented this, as well as the victim’s asinine mother! She needs to have her daughter taken from her before she gets her killed with yet another “great babysitter”.

  • Leasha

    Same, I feel like I’ve seen his pic before. The story did say he had “outstanding warrants” so we’ve probably seen his other mug shots on the news or news related sites.

  • Rachel Ann

    Geez, usually I’m all for kicking the mom if she deserves kicking but in this case I don’t think she does. He was baby sitting at his moms house with his mom home, so I can see her thinking it would be fine if he babysat.
    No one can fathom something like this happening. Not everyone reads the DD and sees the shit we see on a daily basis. We can sit back and say oh if I was that mom I would never let someone other than family babysit my kids even though its just as possible a family member could hurt your kid.
    We as responsible parents do the best we can to protect our children and when it comes to children we expect the same from others. Unfortunately however that’s not always the case.

    If he had babysat before and there were obvious signs something was up then yea maybe Mom has some blame, but this was one time and unfortunately that’s all it took.

  • Parrot Toes

    I wouldn’t trust a new boyfriends mom either. Just because she is a woman? No way, they can be just as bad, sometimes worse.

  • Athena

    Are you single, Tex?

  • tkaz

    I REALLY need an update on what a “brave pokie” is.
    All I could come up with is the horse Merida rides in Brave…but no one knows about Poky & Gumby anymore &…I’ve analyzed this toooooo long.

  • Mom of the yr here and the commenter on front page that says she cant beat up mom over this well we will see her kids on dd in the future

  • Some people just have no sense. To leave your child with someone you don’t know is just poor judgement. You might as well tell ur kids it’s ok to talk to strangers! And to harm/kill an innocent child is unforgivable

  • Buffettgirl

    There needs to be a special place, just for baby-beaters, where the rest of us can go and watch them being tortured mercilessly for the rest of their miserable, pathetic, obscene lives… just sayin’…

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    I agree!

  • kellyishere

    Hmm leaving your kids with a meth head you’ve dated or 2 weeks…. SMH

  • to you judgy mom posters: imagining that she is a bad person because her friend killed her baby is absurd. she couldnt conceive that she was bedding a murderer. insanity is never far away from anyone.

  • Texas Ranger

    Define single.

  • itsknotme

    “meth addict” – Why don’t illegal drugs come with warning labels?

    May cause … baby killing, rest of your life in prison, sell your soul for the drug, ….

    I just don’t understand the attraction to something that is so bad for your life much less why would you “turn somebody onto it?” when you know how your own life has become “So Unmanageable.”

    We can’t “Meth Addiction” be as bad as making me eat “My Vegetables?”

  • wow… what a piece of shit…

  • techsupp0rt

    And an equally special place for the dumb bitches who let them around and leave them with their kids.

  • Athena

    In this context, I suppose I meant looking for a steady relationship.

  • Buffettgirl

    I’m totally good with that too!

  • tinalovesnick

    I will ask my 9 and 11 year old what they think it is… I am curious. But if you ask another child they are sometimes better at deciphering each other.

  • These women sure know how to pick ’em!

  • Jasonias

    It’s always the guys with the visibly asymmetrical faces that do this stuff. When will people wise up???

  • LuvsHorror


  • Pyncky

    Angry much? Not that you are wrong, you just sound like this is too personal for you.

  • newstarshipsmell

    tarsh’s public service announcement:


    It’s common fuckin’ sense, folks.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Introducing your kids to a guy after two weeks is different from leaving your children in his complete care for several hours. This woman must not have been over concerned anyway because “There was also a red abrasion on the top of his head that looked recent” that went unnoticed.


  • Parrot Toes

    Now someone tells me……

    Where were you 17 years ago……….oh wait, that was a ketchup bottle……never mind.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I agree that she shouldn’t be kicked. She should go to jail for neglect for leaving her kids with virtual strangers and not noticing an injury on the child’s head.

  • JohnQknowitall

    An apartment with extra closet space isn’t much more expensive than a regular apartment.

  • Georgia Meyer

    Weirdly, I think she was talking about a toy from the movie Brave, it has trees connected to it and it was literally the first thing I thought of when I read that. It actually scared me a little as I have three boys and not one Brave toy.

  • Leasha

    Yeah, a baby was murdered for no reason. I have a son, so stories about children being abused/killed hit close to home. Nothing wrong with that.

  • Texas Ranger

    Of course! Looking for a relationship with a lady with a steady, extremely high paying job, that looks like Jennifer Aniston or Kate Upton….but with a slutty streak that almost tires me out…but not completely, and can make really, really good beef tamales…Who isn’t?

  • Texas Ranger

    Exactly!!! You STIR babies, Damn, simple math here folks.

  • modianos

    a fight to the death between all the people who abuse children. maybe a thunder dome type deal.

  • Jubilex

    Michael J. Fox is sad 🙁

  • Valerie

    Ya know, I thought the ‘sexual revolution’ was all about a woman’s choice. Birth control readily available. Why do these stupid cunts keep having babies if they don’t want to be Mommies? Have the masses really gotten this brain dead? A living soul, out of your own body, doesn’t deserve better? OH, PLEASE HELP US LORD! Please help us.

  • Chinchillazilla

    “Locks’ mother said that it had been a rough year on her son because of his drug problem and that she suspected him of using crystal meth.”

    Oh, well. That’s all right, then.

  • Aurora Hylton

    Gods…I swear sometimes I just want to go out and sterilize the entire human race. You have a baby and a young child, so you hook up with a meth head and think its okay for him to babysit those children? Obviously the real perpetrator here is said meth head, but I don’t think anyone taught the mother any life skills. She seems to be completely lacking in common sense.

  • Aurora Hylton

    I had been friends with my second husband for a number of years before we started dating. We worked together. I knew he was clean and didn’t have any kind of serious criminal record. He became an excellent stepdad for my kids, who are all adults now.
    I dated a lot of shitheads before I found him, but I never brought them home. They were usually out of my life pretty quick once their true fucked-up personalities came through. Still, I don’t think any of them were ever this bad. They were just irresponsible.

  • Aurora Hylton

    I don’t know what a Brave Pokie is, but I do know Pokey and Gumby. Of course I’m almost fifty years old, so I suppose that’s to be expected.

  • Aurora Hylton

    Someone should have told me “don’t open the orange soda you just dropped.” Sprayed right in my face. Of course it provided a good laugh for everyone else.

  • Aurora Hylton

    Kind of makes me think that the sex education programs in public schools (If they even have those any more–my kids are all in their mid to late twenties so I really don’t know what goes on in school these days) need to go beyond just teaching about reproductive organs and condoms and also teach some anti-stupid. Such as, the guy actually needs to put on the condom before you have sex. Also, don’t leave your children with a meth head.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    His eyes are too close together…FAS, anyone?

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Who wants to bet that she’s enabling him?

  • Valerie

    Poor fucking addict. I have beat heroin (late 70s), cocaine (pretty much all the 80s), and alcohol. I am and will always be an addict. I have ALWAYS taken responsibility for my actions. Had a long career in the legal field. Raised a son (who now plainly says I was a great Mom)
    NO EXCUSE!!!! There is something wrong in the fucking brainstems of these…I really have a hard time calling them human. They are not of my tribe. I know this is PIC…but if you look at some people, you can see there’s some kind of DNA warp there. UUUGGHHHH!!!! Okay, I kinda feel better….

  • Valerie

    GIRL!!! Would you trust your child to some dick you’ve know TWO WEEKS?!

  • Valerie

    That’s what I feel. You can see in some people there is some DNA that just didn’t get put in the right spiral.

  • Natasha Fatale

    I’m just really cautious about introducing my kids to guys i date.. I was a child of a mom who brought many men into my life.. It was confusing and weird for me and she moved in 4 or 5 of them when i was growing up that I hardly even knew.. I’m lucky I was never beaten or molested.. So from first hand experience on meeting moms boyfriends i just don’t think it’s the right thing to do so quickly, at least not for me and mine. A guy would have to be pretty damn special and worthy to ever meet my kids.

  • CT

    Don’t let him fool you, he’s married as they get.

  • Georgia Meyer

    There is a castle set from Brave, it has trees connected to it. Its supposed to be part of the tower I believe. I really think something in the is what she was talking about. That poor little boy.

  • Texas Ranger

    Whats that mean? I am not, repeat not, pussy-whipped. Hell told Mrs. Ranger last nite that if she thinks she can find someone that treats her better than I do…tear her ass and find him.

  • kimbev69

    2 wks! wtf

  • kimbev69

    he looks like an actor but i don’t know the name

  • kimbev69

    she needs to be kicked in the face in my opinion but that’s just me..i’d hate to be the surviving child….wondering everyday who is momma gonna leave me with next

  • kimbev69

    ok even if he babysat 13 of those 14 days they were bumping uglies…still she had to know he’s on something look at him, why do you think she was going out with him to begin with..drug connection more than likely

  • JohnQknowitall

    I wish down votes were as identifiable as up votes. I wish down voters had the balls to identify themselves.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Hope he enjoys prison.

  • Defafan

    Just like overpopulated animal kennels… once a prison becomes overpopulated (or once a month) guards should take the baby killers/child abusers/child molesters FIRST to a gas chamber in the back of the prison, pile their bodies on top of each other, turn on gas, remove bodies to incinerator and fire it up and just like that, society is a better place.

  • Jessie

    He’s smiling like he won the f**king lottery!?! Hope he likes it up the butt!

  • JGo555

    Sometimes, a ROCK can babysit kids better. It just has to be the right weight and height for it to babysit without hurting a kid.

  • RedScarab

    Well if you leave your baby with someone you barely know you shouldn’t be shocked when your baby comes back broken.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Bring back something like the Roman (Greek?) coliseum, & send baby beaters & Pedos to battle with hungry lions, & let’s see how bad their asses are then! –This is what I wish for when I’m feeling vengeful against these Asshairs!

  • Buffettgirl

    You’re nicer than me! I wish this for them all of the time, not just when I’m feeling vengeful! 😉

  • BrittBrittRoss

    This is also a valid option. They could also be used as real life crash dummies, or shipped off to a deserted island where we can watch the haps, on a survivor-type reality show style — with no hope or ever going home, of course…..

  • modianos

    all of the above. id pay to watch that.

  • Have fun in hell you fucking loser.

  • Vannessa


  • Aussie Sabbath

    Or we could test cosmetics/medicine/cleaning products on them, instead of using innocent animals.

  • nans11

    Stupid mother..I’d never let a boyfriend babysit!

  • CatAtonic99

    Rihanna? Can’t have her though- she’s mine 😉 Oh, and Rachel McAdams is my other girl crush. You’d have to fight me for either of them.

  • Nick Trygg

    “He had taken off and was found a couple hours later hiding in a crawlspace beneath his house like a sniveling coward”. Way to look as guilty as humanly possible buddy. Well at least it’s gonna be a cut and dry case. The fuck is he smiling for?

  • keepalow

    Goal #1, Pick one that isn’t a meth user. Goal #2 don’t leave your kids alone with someone you have been dating 2 weeks. Stay with your husband anyway, Custody arrangements no matter what they are really hurt the kids.
