Authorities were alerted to the ad by another couple just cruisin’ through Craigslist.
Police made contact with the two responsible for the ad, ultimately arranging a price and agreeing upon a safe, public place in which to meet.
An undercover officer hooked up with the sellers at a Dollar General store Friday afternoon. The agent shelled out the agreed upon $3,000, cash, and the sellers handed over the baby.
Immediately after the exchange, the morons were arrested.
A warrant from the Greene County Sheriff’s Office says the couple “did knowingly place the child in threat of serious danger, bodily injury or death by selling the child to an unknown person”.
Deanna Lynn Greer, 37, and 26-year-old John David Cain were arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect or endangerment. Both are being held on $150,000 bond.…
It appears as if someone is channeling Margaret White….
The child told police her mom, Rhonda Kemp Shoffner, who had been on a three day bender, ordered her to call multiple family members on the afternoon of March 14. When no one answered the child’s calls, Shoffner ordered her into the bathroom and demanded that the child get on her knees.
At that point, the girl said, she knew she was in for a beating. But no amount of begging or pleading helped.
Shoffner began reciting bible verses and expected the girl to repeat them, verbatim.
Shoffner asked her child, “What did God tell the man to do with his son?”
When the girl said she didn’t know, Shoffner said, “God told the man to kill his son.”
Instead, the girl said, “God said to forgive his son,” and Shoffner grabbed her by the hair and slammed her head into the wall, police said.…
For those who can’t stomach the attached video, a rundown….
The roughly 23-second video opens with a screaming young girl looking for an escape from what looks to be the lower half of a bunk bed, as she has her hair pulled and is repeatedly slapped about the head, back, and rear.
The camera then pans to a young boy. It appears as if he is lifted by his neck or hair, and repeatedly and violently whacked on the head and face.
Though most of her screaming is unintelligible, it sounds like she might be demanding that someone get his/her ass back home before she, the harpy, beats those kids to death.
The video was then apparently posted to Facebook, YouTube, and other social media type platforms.
Baltimore’s Child Abuse Center has received nearly 200 emails in connection to the video, the agency’s program and policy director told The New York Post.…
Allegheny County, PA — A woman who was arrested after her two young sons overdosed on prescription medication at school apparently told police she “didn’t want the kids anyway.”
Samantha Brown is facing multiple charges in connection with the alleged incident.
Authorities claim the 27-year-old woman gave her two sons, ages 8 and 9, Klonopin before sending them off to school Wednesday morning.
The younger boy was later found unresponsive on the floor, foaming at the mouth in a puddle of vomit. The older boy was found dazed and foaming at the mouth.
Both were treated UPMC’s Children’s Hospital. No word on their condition.
The boys told investigators their mother made them take the pills, and Brown had the pills on her when police questioned her.

According to police, Walsh approached a 14-year-old girl in late January and said, “Hey, let me get some of that,” and slapped her on the ass.
The girl’s grandmother reported the incident to police, but deputies were unable to identify the man and closed the case. They did, however, beef up patrols in the area where the alleged ass slapping took place.
This past Friday, Walsh apparently approached an 8-year-old girl waiting at her bus stop and showed her a drawing of a puppy, telling her the dog was lost and he needed her help.
After speaking with parents and other children who got on and off the bus at that particular intersection, investigators learned that Walsh was almost a fixture at that bus stop and has tried talking to numerous children when there were no adults around.…
Jazmine Nichole Pacyga has been charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct and manufacturing child sexually abusive material after admitting to performing oral sex on her 3-month-old baby.
I can’t find a lot of details regarding how she was caught, but I am assuming – going by the charges against her – Pacyga is another of many women we have featured on the site who have sexually abused their children on camera.
Pacyga is being charged as a second-time habitual offender because of a prior conviction for felony home invasion. These latest charges could see her getting life behind bars if convicted.
Since her parental rights have been suspended due to her “drunkenness and neglect,” and because she has been lodged in the Muskegon County Jail on two felony charges, her son has been placed in the custody of DHHS. Efforts are currently underway to determine the baby’s father.…
On January 26, Iris Hernandez Rivas called 911 and said she found her daughter face-down in the bathtub, “unresponsive with her hands clenched at her side.”
When first responders arrived at her apartment, Hernandez Rivas reportedly told them her daughter had been in the shower for 15 to 20 minutes when a noise from the bathroom prompted her to check on her child.
After finding her daughter face-down in the tub, she took her out and put her on the bedroom floor. She then called her boyfriend and her brother for help before calling 911 an hour after finding her daughter.
Paramedics took the child to the hospital in serious condition where medical staff found “reddish bruising on multiple regions of her body,” an injury to her brain, a “small liver contusion” and “patterned injuries that are the result of blunt force trauma with an object.”
When confronted about the injuries, Hernandez Rivas admitted she kicked the child in the stomach because she was angry that she wouldn’t brush her teeth.…
The incident happened in 2015 after 33-year-old Jason Lawson and his brother-in-law, Arturo Martinez, attacked the boy in the ship’s library.
What sparked the attack was an incident that happened a couple of days earlier, when Martinez heard the boy offer Lawson’s daughter a keychain for her virginity while they were hanging out with other kids.
Lawson made the boy apologize to his daughter at that time. No harm, no foul. But when Lawson and Martinez ran into the teen a few days later in the ship’s library, they took things too far. Way too far.
According to the teen, Martinez yelled at him for a bit before pinning him against a wall. Martinez made the boy take off his pants before taking off his own. Now wearing only their underwear, Martinez held the boy face down on a couch by his neck while simulating a sex act on the teen.…
According to court documents, Amy Floyd Morgan repeatedly took her young daughter to a Covered Bridge Inn hotel room so that Rama Raji Erramraju could pay to have sex with the girl.
This exchange reportedly took place multiple times between June 2015 and Aug. 2016. No word on how they got busted, but both of them were arrested last week.
Morgan, a former stripper from Florida who performed under the name Jewel, has been charged with human trafficking and conspiring to commit sexual abuse of a child younger than 12. She is being held in the Blount County Jail on $350,000 bond.
Erramraju is in the same facility, facing charges of human trafficking, enticing a child for immoral purposes, sex abuse of a child under the age of 12 and facilitating the travel of a child for an unlawful sex act. He is being held without bond.…
According to the boy’s mother, she was giving him a bath when she noticed he had an injury on his hand. When she asked him what happened, he told her the nanny had burned him with an iron.
The woman reviewed surveillance footage from a home security camera and witnessed something shocking; the nanny, 21-year-old Nosipho Nxumalo, burning her son repeatedly with a hot curling iron.
“After she burns him several times, you could tell she was telling him, ‘See that’s what happens when you don’t listen,’ and then she hugs him.” said the boy’s mother. “She’s playing these warped mind games with my child, and it’s the most disgusting thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life.”
The woman immediately called police who arrested Nxumalo. She told them that she was just trying to discipline the boy when he refused to listen, so she used the curling iron to burn him.…

On Monday night at around 9pm, Mingming Chen called police to report her 5-year-old daughter, Ashley Zhao, was missing.
She told police that she last saw her daughter hours earlier and felt she had wondered out of Ang’s Asian Cuisine, the restaurant her family operates.
Police and locals began a search for Ashley, and an endangered child alert was issued. These were called off when Ashley’s body was discovered found “deceased and concealed” inside the family’s restaurant.
It was then that investigators learned the truth about what happened to the girl.
According to police, Chen repeatedly punched her daughter in the head for reasons unknown at this time. The girl’s father, Liang Zhao, found his daughter on the ground with a green liquid coming from her mouth.

According to reports, a 16-year-old girl was babysitting a two week old infant when she accidentally burned her.
While giving the infant a bath in the sink under running water, she accidentally turned off the cold water instead of the hot water.
The girl’s mother called the infant’s parents, 25-year-old Patric Eddy and 26-year-old Candace Mercedes, to inform them of what happened.

According to police, Crystal Herrera waited three hours after giving the child a bath and noticing blood before calling 911 to report the girl had been mauled by a dog.
When police arrived at the scene, Herrera’s boyfriend, 23-year-old Isaac Cardenas, told them the girl had wandered out of the house in the middle of the night and had been mauled by dogs.
However, once at the hospital it was clear that the injuries the child was suffering from did not come from dogs, as she had multiple stab wounds to her genitals
Police say the girl had life threatening injuries consistent with sexual assault, including stab wounds on her upper body and private parts that were “non-accidental.”
She also suffered ‘acute respiratory failure’ and will have to undergo re-constructive surgery to repair her injuries. The injuries were so bad that seasoned officers are calling it one of the worst cases they’ve ever seen.…
It happened on Sunday when the boys’ teenage sister came home and found them injured and crying. When she asked what happened, they informed her that their mother, 36-year-old Sascha Collins, had beat the crap out of them.
The reason for the beating? The boys, ages 7 and 9, had apparently opened their Christmas presents early after finding them stashed in their mother’s closet. The boys’ sister got them out of the house and called police.
The boys told responding officers that Collins hit them with a belt buckle, threw them against a wall and bit one of them. Police noted that both boys were suffering injuries that corroborated their story.
The sister told police that her mother was an alcoholic who snorts Hydrocodone. She also added that when her mother gets mad that she repeatedly calls one of the boys, who is mentally disabled, retarded.…
Police were called to the home of 33-year-old John Peterson after the mother of the 5-week-old girl called to report the girl was having trouble breathing.
Peterson said that the girl was being fussy earlier then stopped breathing. Paramedics performed CPR on the child and get a pulse before taking her to the hospital.
After examine the girl, hospital staff would tell police the girl was suffering from a severe head injury, and suspected abuse.
When police interviewed Peterson, he admitted he’d lied and that he had accidentally dropped the girl in the sink and she’d hit her head on the sink’s divider.

On Friday, police were called to a hospital to investigate a child abuse call after two infants were brought to an Owasso Urgent Care suffering from extreme malnutrition.
A tearful nurse told the officer that one of the children looked like a skeleton and had severe diaper rash, bedsores, feces in her ear.
Even worse, while the infant was being evaluated by medical staff, a maggot crawled out of the infant’s vagina.
The other infant was extremely skinny, had a major diaper rash, bed sores, and a hair was wrapped around her finger so tight it had gotten infected and skin was growing over it.
When officers interviewed the children’s parents, Kevin Fowler and Aislyn Miller, they said they are “new parents” and not used to taking care of infants.
Miller said they were aware of some of the medical issues the infants were suffering, but that they do not have health insurance and cannot afford the medical bills.…
According to police, 44-year-old Etter Hughes moved from Arkansas to the rat-infested apartment of 47-year-old Mary Martinez, a woman she had met in prison.
Hughes brought along her 13-year-old son and the two younger sons of her cousin, who was moving to Wisconsin at a later time.
Almost immediately after moving in, 7-year-old Trevion and his 9-year-old brother suffered beatings at the hands of Martinez, and were routinely denied food.
Investigators say Martinez would kick them in the head, punch them in the back, burn them with cigarettes and whip them with electrical cords. Police say that at no time during this abuse did Hughes intervene.
That changed last week when Trevion was found unresponsive with his eyes were rolling back into his head.
When Martinez saw the boy’s condition, she allegedly told Etter she and the boys needed to get out of her house and to drop Trevion off in the woods.…
