Howell called 911 last year to report her 17-month-old daughter, Jaslynn Mansfield, was not breathing. The baby was rushed to the hospital where she would later die of acute methadone toxicity.
After police found a baby bottle in Jaslynn’s room contained methadone, Howell would admit that on the day her daughter died, she had given the baby methadone to help her go to sleep.
What makes that fact so tragic is that had she told emergency workers this when her daughter was brought to the hospital, they very well could have saved her life.
According to the child’s grandmother, Howell knew the dangers of the drug as Jaslynn was born addicted to it and her father died from a methadone overdose a few months before she was born.
In July, Howell would plea guilty to second-degree manslaughter and causing a child to be exposed to a controlled substance.…
MORELIA, MEXICO – A man has been arrested and charged with murder after he drowned his 3-year-old stepdaughter by repeatedly throwing her into a hotel swimming pool.
Police said the man was staying with a woman and her daughter at a popular hotel on August 12 when he decided to take the girl to the pool after her mother fell asleep.
As you can see in the disturbing video below, the man repeatedly throws the little girl in the pool. Sometimes he just drops her in the water, clothed, while others he haphazardly slings her out into the middle of the pool.
Each time he does this, the asshole nonchalantly walks around the edge of the pool or swims around her as she frantically tries to keep her head above the water. With each toss, the girl’s attempts at swimming become weaker and weaker.
The video also shows the man holding the girl under water for significant periods of time while other people are nearby and never intervene.
Later, the child stops breathing and was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. …
Back in January, Quesenberry was babysitting Koda Chrisely while his mother went out job hunting. The mother knew Quesenberry since middle school and had let her babysit her children multiple times in the past with no issues.
That all changed on Jan. 17 when she tried to pick up her son and Quesenberry would not answer the door. Over the next 72 hours, the mother tried getting her son while Quesenberry made excuses as to why that wasn’t possible but assured her that Koda was fine.
Koda’s mother finally told Quesenberry that she was calling police if she did not get her son back, and that did the trick. But once the woman was reunited with her son, she discovered he was suffering from severe second- and third-degree burns on his left arm. He also had what appeared to be cigarette burns on his abdomen, behind his ears, nose and other areas.…
WASHINGTON, DC – Robert Smith Sr. has been charged with first-degree murder after police say he he squeezed his 5-week-old son so hard that he fractured the infant’s vertebrae and ribs.
According to the court documents, the infant’s mother called 911 when she went to check on the baby and found he was not breathing.
The baby would be pronounced dead at the hospital where the medical examiner would find the infant had suffered rib fractures, both recent and old; a fractured vertebra; a fractured wrist; and a scabbed abrasion on the back of his head.
Smith would admit to detectives that on the day of his son’s death, he woke up about 7:30?a.m. that morning to his son crying. Smith went to check on him and squeezed him “like you squeeze a roll of toothpaste” until he heard a cracking sound. The boy went limp and groggy, so he placed him back in his sleeper.
Smith admitted that this squeezing technique was one he had employed on previous occasions when his son would cry or become fussy – about three or four times a day in the days leading up to his death.…
The incident happened Saturday afternoon, when Weathford called police to report a 13-year-old boy had vandalize his front walkway by smashing some landscaping bricks.
While police were there taking the report, they noted a strong smell of urine but could not determine the source.
The source of that smell would reveal itself after they were called back to the location by the mother of the boy who allegedly vandalized Weatherford’s walkway. She was calling to report Weathford had assaulted her snowflake with urine.
The 13-year-old told police he’d got into an argument with Weatherford, an argument that ended with Weatherford dumping a bowl full of piss on his head from Weatherford’s his second-floor balcony.
Police wrote in their report that while the teen was talking to them, he “had a strong smell of urine emanating from his person.”
That visual is hilarious to me — a sulking teen having to talk to police covered in stinking piss because his mother wouldn’t let him wash it off so there would be proof of the act.…
BELLEFONTAINE, OH – Brittany Pilkington has been charged with the deaths of her three young sons after the 23-year-old admitted to murdering them because her husband was paying more attention to their daughter.

So it was totally understandable that police would like to have a talk with Brittany. After just a few hours of questions, Brittany admitted she had killed her three sons by placing blankets over their faces and suffocating them.
Her motive? According to Brittany, she killed the boys because her husband was giving them more attention than he was their 3-year-old daughter, Hailey.…

According reports, witnesses observed Cox hitting his infant son, Jayceon Chrystie, several times with his hand as the child was in a car seat in the front passenger seat of Cox’s car. They were so disturbed by what they witnessed that they called 911 to report it.
“My wife and I [were] heading on the 31W, [and] we witnessed a guy look like he was striking something in the back seat of the car. I assumed that it was an infant or toddler the way he was striking it,” the witness said. “Couldn’t believe it, couldn’t believe it.”
Police looked for Cox’s vehicle, but before they could find it another call came in from the home of the boy’s mother. She called 911 to report Cox had dropped their son off in the driveway after having home for only a couple hours, and that the boy was “black and blue” and unresponsive.…
NEW YORK, NY – Hours after her baby returned home from the hospital, police say 21-year-old Rashida Chowdhury killed her 3-week-old baby by chucking his ass out a fourth-floor window.
Police were called to Chowdhury’s apartment building after neighbors heard something hit the ground and discovered a baby lying in a pool of blood in the building’s courtyard. The baby, Rizwan Ahmad, was pronounced dead at the scene.
One neighbor said she saw the baby’s father, also named Rizwan Ahmad, crying “My first child, my first child” in the courtyard. Investigators say the baby had only been home for hours after returning from a three night stay at the hospital for a viral infection.
Chowdhury, believed to be suffering from postpartum depression, first told detectives that the baby flew out the window after becoming possessed by a demon. She would later admit she tossed him out because he was possessed by evil spirits and she wanted to ease his pain.
She is now charged with second-degree murder and intentional murder of a victim less than 11 years old.…
NAMPA, ID – Regina Dilworth, 22, was arrested after she got high on bath salts then tried baptizing her baby in an irrigation ditch because God told her it was possessed.
After injecting herself with a cocktail of bath salts and Dilaudid, Dilworth woke up the next morning and walked out of the house carrying her infant and followed by her 4-year-old.
She told detectives that she was “following the light” when God began speaking to her. Instead of telling her to clean her house, keep her legs closed and become a productive member of society, God told her that her children were possessed and that she needed to baptize her infant.
After walking to an intersection a mile from her home in an attempt to rid her children of demons, Dilworth tried giving her 4-year-old daughter to a stranger, saying “save my girl.” She then jumped into a nearby canal with her baby while her 4-year-old stood crying on the bank.
Although the ditch is only 3 feet wide and 10 inches deep, Dilworth was fully submerged in the water and her baby was submerged up to her neck when two witnesses arrived to pull them both out. …
TRAFFORD, AL – Police have arrested 23-year-old Misty Wright and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Johnathon Talley, after Wright’s 3-year-old daughter was found unconscious in a pool of her own vomit.
On Monday, Wright and Talley called 911 after finding Jettie Adams laying in a pool of vomit on a mattress on the porch of their trailer. Paramedics rushed the girl to the hospital where she would be pronounced dead.
An autopsy would reveal the girl died from severe internal injuries – the result of being repeatedly struck in the chest, abdomen and head.
“She was hit was such force her intestines were damaged,” said Chief Deputy Randy Christian, adding that she likely suffered a long, painful death all alone after going out to the porch to lie down on the mattress where she stayed all night. “It’s the saddest case I can recall.”
Several children found living in the trailer were placed into the custody of the Department of Human Resources. Neighbors say they didn’t know the family well, but the law is very familiar with Talley.…

Budd knew the Diaz family and ran to their home to alert the boy’s mother, who became visibly distraught. Diaz was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital with serious injuries.
Budd said the dog belonged to the Diaz family and that she’d seen it earlier that day hanging around her loading dock.

The neighbor said the girl was yelling and banging on the window as her mother simply gazed at her daughter and continued driving. The girl eventually fell off the truck and landed in the road. Giancherio simply drove away.

The girl begged the neighbor not to call police on her mother, but they did anyway. When officers arrived, Giancherio had already returned home and parked her truck in the garage.…
GAITHERSBURG, MD – Police have charged 33-year-old Narges Shafeirad with the murder of her son after they say she forced the boy to overdose on allergy medicine before staging a fiery car crash.
On June 16, 5-year-old Daniel Dana was found trapped inside a burning car off Route 370. Shafeirad was face-down on the ground outside the driver’s door, screaming in pain.
Emergency crews tried to save Daniel, but he later died. Shafeirad was transported to the hospital to treat second and third degree burns to 40 percent of her body.
Shafeirad would tell Montgomery County police that the crash was an accident caused by her car catching fire, but investigators would quickly become suspicious.
For starters, fire marshals and a reconstruction team found that the fire started in the front-seat area and the car reeked of gasoline in and around the vehicle. They would later rule out a mechanical malfunction, including the fuel lines and fuel tank. But Shafeirad’s version of events really fell apart after Daniel’s toxicology results revealed the boy had died from Diphenhydramine intoxication.…

There are certain stories that, over the years, I have stayed away from – teachers fucking students and people leaving their kids in a hot car. After almost 5000 articles, I am just sick of writing them.
However, in the case of Peer, I am making an exception because, even after all of those articles, I can still be surprised at the level of stupidity some people manage to reach.
On July 4 , Peer and her two brothers walked into a Walmart, leaving her two-year-old daughter locked inside the car. In the sun. With the windows rolled up. On a sunny day that reached a high of 104 degrees.
Another shopper happened to walk by the car and saw the little girl sweating profusely in the backseat and called 911. Responding officers ended up smashing one of the car’s windows to get the girl out.…
