MILWAUKEE, WI – A woman in Milwaukee has been accused of killing her son by setting him on fire in a bathtub inside their apartment.

The Milwaukee Fire Department was dispatched to 23-year-old Amelia DiStasio’s residence Thursday morning after getting a call regarding smoke coming from her apartment.

When they made their way inside, they found the lifeless body of DiStasio’s 4-year-old son in a bathtub. The poor kid, who suffered from autism, had been burned alive.

Reports say his hands had been bound behind his back with several belts, and a plastic garbage bag had been pulled over his head before he was set on fire.

Also in the bathroom was an open bottle of cooking oil sitting in the sink, a pet guinea pig drowned in its cage by the tub, and the apartment’s smoke detector submerged in water.

A witness told officers she saw a “frazzled” woman jump from the window of the apartment building before firefighters arrived. DiStasio was taken into custody later that day after she was found walking down the street.

DiStassio has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide and is facing life in prison if convicted. According to DiStasio’s father, his daughter suffers from bipolar disorder and needs help, not jail.

Adding a bit of credence to DiStasio suffering from a mental disorder, investigators found someone had used DiStasio’s phone shortly before her son was killed to perform Google searches that included “Canabsls due” [sic] “How do canabals die” [sic] and “How to kill a canabal.” [sic]

The phone then accessed a message board dedicated to an online game where players fight cannibals. In one particular message that was accessed, players discussed killing the cannibals with fire because cannibals often “like to bath in oil.”

  • I am telling you what is happening in this world

  • Another crazy chic killing her kid(s) in a crazy way.

  • My theory is that our current phase of civilization has reached its apex and is now declining in preparation for the next…who knows what that’s going to be like..probably some far-leaning ideological dystopia like Orwell’s 1984.

  • It is sad


    There’s no cure for her kind of crazy. The world does not need her rehabilitated, “helped”, or whatever you want to call it, and and let back out on the street. If she’s not going to be put out of her misery for literally cooking her child to death, then lock her away in an insane asylum *for life*. Unless the bleeding hearts thinks she deserves a second chance at freedom? You want her out on the same streets where your kids play ? I don’t. There are plenty enough untreated crazies out there now as it is. People like her who live in their own world of crazy, scare the shit out of me.

  • This is no worse than things that were done during historical times. Another page that I’m subscribed to, that focuses on human history, has recently posted a historical fact where a wealthy person purchased an 11-year-old child just to watch her get eaten by a cannibalistic tribe. As fucked up as this is, it still pales in comparison to several things that were done to children centuries ago. Deranged people will always exist in society, that’s a fact we have to deal with.

  • itsknotme

    Google: “Would you make the Search results for ‘Canabsls,’ ‘Crazy Bitch go take your meds.” please?

  • mean birch

    As the step mother and only relation to a mentally ill adult daughter I can honestly say with extreme honesty I agree 100%.
    There’s no cure. No instance of when it would be acceptable to put her in the general population. Judge me if you like. You are not in my shoes.

  • BG

    Oldest Bro is mentally ill and I’m pretty sure he would agree too. Poor little dude. 🙁

  • There needs to be a national advertising campaign to let ppl know they can put their kids up for adoption and how to do it.

    Too many ppl can’t handle being a parent and things like this happen.

  • My god ! , just kill her the same way ,twice


    I don’t believe she’s bipolar. It sounds to me like she’s hardcore schizophrenic. And if you don’t take your meds religiously for that… everyone around you .. watch out … … I’ve been diagnosed with “everything else” under the sun…. Bipolar, OCD, generalized anxiety disorder, with Aspergers on top of all of that. Am I homicidal ? No, I am not. I take a small amount of meds to keep the worst of it under control, and work in keeping a healthy diet in place to help with the rest. There is no way in hell I would ever harm anyone, or any animal for that matter. I’d take myself out first, and only. I live with it, and keep that shit in check. It’s hell, and most days, my life is no fun. But I know what I’m talking about, and that’s why I say what I said. If my little demons ever tell me someone needs to fry .. because …. , that’s when I tell someone, that things are taking a hard right turn into crazy town, so take cover. Self-monitoring, and self awareness, is everything. If you can’t do it .. shit like this happens.

  • Taster’sChoice

    Another page? Do tell!

  • Taster’sChoice

    Bipolar is some fucked up shit. Dated a girl in college who wouldn’t engage in full on sexual intercourse, but she’d go down and take the chowder. Now I don’t know about you, but I think swallowing some guy’s load is WAAAAAAY more intimate than regular sex. But what do I know? ….besides a good hummer when I get one. LMAO.

  • Taster’sChoice

    I hate that for you hon.

  • Why would she kill her son for being an artist?

  • DD is back!!!

  • BG

    Thanks! <3

  • BG

    That’s always been my theory too! Nice to see it echoed by a gent!

  • I’m sure she drowned his guinea pig in front of him before she killed him ???????? poor little man ????

  • Mazikeen666

    Wtfff, poor lil baby i have a 2yo i would never hurt him,it breaks my heart, do the same to her

  • nonsense! why actually go through all that trouble of having the little bunch of cells when you can just abort it? don’t be silly

  • its OK everyone calm down. planned parenthood told her it was ok. so it was perfectly ethical and legal. local authorities are changing the status from a “murder” to the “disposal of the unwanted late term pregnancy ” so its ok now. back to business as usual. nothing to see here. go look at banning that plastic stock the ATF approved as legal during the obama years and figure out how its the GOP’s fault

  • Daniel Rossevelt

    Yeah, damn you share this page!!! (pretty please)

  • Sejanus

    Mentally ill people that are this effed up need to be sterilized.
    You can’t kill a child you never had to begin with.
    This is a far better option than abortion frankly.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    If a person is that out of touch with reality, why is she the caregiver for an autistic child?? That’s just some kind of fucked up right there. R.I.P. little man.

  • William Dean Luke

    This whole thing just reks of suckage..

  • Wtf? You’re politicizing this? Wow… you’re something.

  • Ann Stone

    The poor guinea pig. At the mercy of a whole lotta crazy.

  • Taster’sChoice

    AWWWW.. Mine will be 3 on 10/29. She has me wrapped around her little finger. This boggles the mind.

  • Diva of Destruction

    This mother makes the father in the story bellow look like the parent of the year. Sooooo she’s bipolar with an autistic child and where is the father? Where was anyone to make sure this child didn’t end up burnt to death in a bath tub by his crazy ass mom? If I were to guess I would say she has systematically been torturing this boy mentally and physically since birth. Poor thing his last moments must have been hell.

  • This is true but society experiences things in 10-12 year blocks that culminate into what are called eras or an ‘Age’ if you will. We’ve gone thru a bunch already, now is no different jist we are in one.

  • jansav

    Too sad. Poor boy. I hope he suffocated before she lit the flame. RIP little man.

  • Wtf is wrong with people? Oh I guarantee its cause he was autistic and she wanted to put him out of his misery ugh in the painful way ever friggen cuntrag sorry

  • Bridgett Nicolace go get your pink pussyhat

  • Bridgett Nicolace oh but its ok to bash successful women though right? Like your first pic on your page just not hitlery and her kind?

  • Defafan

    Troll. Woman hating virgin troll.

  • Oh give me a damn break people know this!!! He wasn’t newly born was he? NO HE WASN’T stop babying these bitches that kill their kids go get your pink puttyhat you earned it

  • Arthur Ball you are reading fake stuff

  • Arthur Ball or you are talking about things done in third world countries which are still done today

  • But but she is wearing her hair natural so its all good

  • I don’t interact with lunatics. Be gone, before someone drops a house on you too.

  • I remember reading the article Arthur Ball was refferring to. Its was one of the Jameson whiskey founders who allegedly did this. Although at the ens of the article it basically says that it was all hearsay.

  • Evan, I agree with you.

  • What does her hair have to do with anything..?

  • Every day is worst the the next and thre is no where safe

  • Smoke and the smell of burning bacon…

  • truthguy
  • Tata Setefano why are you asking me anything was i chatting with you or referring to you? I didn’t think so

  • Sara

    That upset me, too. I mean, the whole thing is upsetting, but that little extra thing just added to it. Guinea pigs are some of the most timid little critters I’ve ever met. I’m always worried they’re going to have a heart attack if someone sneezes. To think that someone could drown one while trapped in its cage, in front of a child. Then again, she went further and burned the child to death afterwards, so I think it’s safe to assume exactly the kind of person she is.

  • Sara

    She needed help before this happened, but now she needs a jail cell. There’s no help for her now. She’s done the unforgivable.

    Bipolar disorder is a horrible condition. I feel bad for people who have it and I feel worse for those who love them. Both my parents, my maternal grandfather, my aunt and at least one uncle have it. (I got lucky. I “only” have autism and major depressive disorder.) My mom, aunt, grandpa and uncle all have relatively mild cases and turn into major assholes when the mania hits, but they never picked me up by my hair, threw me across the room and then attempted to beat me to death with a hammer. (My dad, who’s bipolar disorder is severe, did this.) Thankfully, I managed to get away, ran to a neighbor’s house and waited for my mom to come home, hoping he didn’t decide to kill my cat. (He didn’t. The cat was smart and stayed hidden.) If he had killed me and/or my cat, I’d say put him in jail and throw away the key. There are some lines that, when crossed, you just can’t cross back, mentally ill or not.

  • I wish my son with autism and myself could slap an IEP OUTTA HER ASS.

  • Heather_Simpson

    OMFG What a sick bitch. And then her father has the goddamn audacity to say that she’s sick and needs help? Yeah, I’ll give this bitch some help, I’ll hang her by her ankles off of a very tall fuckin building and then let her drop.

    I wish Dr. Kevorkian were still around to gas this bitch out of life for good.

  • Leslie Mashmann

    A neighbor heard the little one begging his Mom. The neighbor did nothing. Typical. That little boy was old enough to know what was happening to him. He knew how it hurt. He knew he couldn’t breath, No one came to help him. All that little human being could do was die. Please kill her. Give her the same rights she gave her own child.

    So if Little Man was a cannibal, what did the guinea pig do wrong? Wait, wait, I know! What do you do with witches? You drown them… so if she drowned the guinea pig… it means… the guinea pig was a witch!

  • Ann Roh

    Slap? You’re so much nicer than I am. I wanted to string her up, hand out bats, and tell everyone it’s a pinata. Your son is lucky to have such a sweet mother, but my poor kids are stuck with a bitch. ;(

    “According to DiStasio’s father, his daughter suffers from bipolar disorder and needs help, not jail.”—HELP her? Help her do *what*? Seems a better course of action to HINDER that bitch.

  • Lancifer

    I think it may be this:

  • DrB3

    I don’t think anyone’s advocating for her to be “out on the street”. But she clearly needs treatment and should be incarcerated in a psychiatric facility, not a general population prison.

    I’m hopeful better treatment options will arise in coming decades. Long acting medications that are injectable etc. But no, I wouldn’t want her meandering about my neck of the woods for a long while and until said treatment is well established.

  • Jade Hatfield

    Someone should have helped her by telling her to keep an aspirin between her knees. I have always thought being burned while alive has got to be one of the most awful ways to die. I can bet this wasn’t her first time being cruel to an animal .. that should have been the big red flag a long time ago. She needs help alright , a banana peel in front of a bonfire.

  • Jade Hatfield

    I don’t in general feel any sympathy to lawyers and maybe I’m making an assumption she’s going to have a public defender .. I think I’d just resign if I came up in The Who gets to defend this animal raffle..
