LARAMIE, WY – WARNING! Midway into this article, I begin using the word “they”as a gender-neutral singular because the sex of the child is unknown, rather than as a plural pronoun. Going by the comments, this seems to have confused the hell out of people. I figured I’d warn some of you beforehand so you are not also stuck staring at your monitor in confusion, with drool pooling from your mouth. You’re welcome.

CROWLEY, TX – A 12-year-old girl is dead after a woman had her ride on top of her car because she didn’t want the girl’s wet bathing suit messing up the car’s upholstery.
Kisha Young, 38, spent June 17 getting drunk at the Creekside Community Pool with the victim’s mother and their six children between the ages of 8 and 14.
When the group left the pool, Young had the kids ride on top of her Chevy Malibu because their bathing suits were wet.
While taking the 1-minute drive home, four of the children fell off the car as Young drove around a corner. Neither Young or the victim’s mother were aware their load had lightened until some teenagers flagged down their car at the end of the street.
Three of the children were treated at the hospital and later released, but 12-year-old Octavia Watkins was admitted with severe head injuries. She never regained consciousness and was removed from life support last Wednesday.
“She was totally unconscious the whole time, so that was my main concern,” said Albert Garcia who found Watkins in the street.…

PORTLAND, ME — Holly Morrison has been charged with gross sexual assault after police say the 34-year-old allowed her boyfriend to sexually assault a developmentally disabled 14-year-old relative.
Back in November, the victim told friends and counselors at school that Morrison’s boyfriend, 59-year-old Donald Cass, had been sexually assaulting her for a month. She would later tell police that Cass would use objects to sexually assault her.
Even worse, she alleged these assaults were encouraged by Morrison, who she said encouraged her to get in the bed with the couple and shower with them. When interviewed, Morrison admitted to seeing Cass assault the girl on three occasions.
Although she said she didn’t approve of Cass’ behavior, she said he’d convinced her that sexually assaulting the developmentally disabled teen was normal. Morrison said she met Cass at a swingers’ party and that Cass, who is married, had visited her on weekends for the last five years.
In February, Cass would plead guilty to two counts of gross sexual assault. He was sentenced to eight years in prison with four years suspended.…
Steamboat Springs, CO – An idiot is facing some serious charges after she left her 3-year-old son home alone for 20 hours and returned home to find him dead.
Megan McKeon, 24, was in the habit of leaving her young son, Austin Davis, home alone inside her small cabin at a local campground while she went to work. According to police, she admitted having done this at least 20 times before with no issues.
But on March 26, she left Austin home alone while she went to work her job at a grocery store. She figured he would be fine as she’d left him with food, juice and a movie playing. Instead of returning home after her shift was over, she returned home the following morning after spending the night at her boyfriend’s house.
She returned home to find Austin dead, lying face up with his eyes wide open. An official cause of death for the boy has not been revealed at this point, but a doctor who tried to save Austin’s life believes the boy may have accidentally poisoned himself with prescription medication or other substances.…
Las Vegas, NV — This has got to hurt book sales. A Las Vegas woman who published a book entitled Foster Care: How to Fix this Corrupted System, was accused of depriving her three adopted daughters of food, refusing to let them go to the bathroom, and beating them.
Janet Solander, 53, racked up a slew of serious child abuse and sexual assault charges. Her husband and daughter faced criminal charges as well.
According to public records in Nevada, Solander’s adopted daughters are sisters aged 9, 11, and 12. They had been in foster care since 2010 and were adopted in 2011. Solander also took care of four other foster children who were removed in February.
Child Protective Services caught up with the sisters after they had been sent to a boarding school in Florida. There the girls told authorities about the abuse and that they feared their adoptive mother would kill them if they returned to Las Vegas.
According to investigators, the girls were forced to sleep on bare boards without any pillows or blankets.…
City of Beacon, NJ – Police arrested 33-year-old Edwina Negron on Wednesday after they, and other witnesses, watched as she repeatedly threw her infant daughter onto the ground.
Police were called to the intersection of Verplanck Avenue and Willow Street after witnesses described watching Negron twice throwing her 8-month-old daughter to the ground. When police arrived on the scene, they observed a “highly intoxicated” Negron throwing the child onto the ground again and watched as the baby’s head hit the sidewalk.
Negron was taken into custody and her daughter was taken to the hospital to be treated for “non-life-threatening injuries,” said Detective Sgt. Lou Lucato of the Beacon Police Department. The girl is now in the custody of Dutchess County Child Protective Services.
Negron would later test positive for cocaine, opiates, methadone and marijuana. She was charged with second-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child. She’s currently sobering up in the Dutchess County Jail on $100,000 bail or $250,00 bond.
We’ve had multiple stories involving mothers throwing their babies on the ground, but one that I always remember is the one caught on a Australian surveillance camera back in 2010.…
HOUSTON, TX – The mother and aunt of a 1-year-old girl are both facing charges after the little girl was admitted to the hospital suffering from alcohol poisoning.
On February 8, police were called to a home where a man said his young daughter had been dropped off by his mother and was now unresponsive. When emergency personnel arrived, they found the 1-year-old had turned into Jaded on any given day of the week; moaning, smelling of alcohol and covered in vomit.
The girl was taken to the hospital where it was determined she had suffered alcohol poisoning and a BAC of over .26. The girl’s father told police that she was like that when she’d been dropped off after being cared for by her mother, 17-year-old Shadreon Jefferson and Jefferson’s sister, 24-year-old Shamara Batiste.
When deputies interviewed Jefferson, she told them she’d fallen asleep and woke up to find that Batiste had given the girl about six shots of vodka. Instead of taking the girl to the hospital, they simply dropped the baby girl off at her father’s home to let him deal with it.…
Staten Island, NY — A 42-year-old man is facing numerous charges after allegedly molesting a 15-year-old girl by rubbing raw meat on her naked body in order to cleanse her of the evil spirits that were making her moody.
Alleged “spiritual leader” Rafael Paulino, aka Omi Chango, apparently met with a female relative of the teen and explained that he would rub raw meat on the girl’s body and pour water on her after he had cut her clothes off in order to spiritually cleanse her. This ritual, he told the woman, was not for entertainment or amusement. He was simply going to attempt to rid the child of the evil spirit that was making her depressed.
The female relative agreed to the cleansing and shelled out $121. It is believed that she wanted a cleansing, too. Not sure if that was the price for the both of ’em, or if maybe he was having a special that week.
On February 24, Paulino met with the girl and got busy fixin’ her depression.…
Wheelersburg, OH – A mother, stepfather and grandmother are in custody, accused of holding four young children prisoner in their southern Ohio home, binding them with ropes and chains, and torturing them both physically and sexually.
The Scioto County Sheriff’s department first learned about the abuse allegations on Jan. 30th, when a teacher at an online learning school said one of the girls emailed her and asked her to call 911. The victims all lived in the home together and were being home schooled via computer, authorities said.
That same computer enabled an 11-year-old girl to reach out for help via email, claiming she and her siblings were being held prisoner in their home and were being tortured. A Sheriff’s deputy, accompanied by county children’s services, went to the home and interviewed the siblings, and evidence of the alleged abuse was apparent.
“The children stated that they had been tied with ropes and chains to their beds for weeks at a time, sometimes longer (and were) only untied to do school work on the computer,” the sheriff’s department said.…
