Eugene, Oregon – Rodger Hartwig and his lovely wife, Alona Lee,are facing assault and criminal mistreatment charges that allege they injured and neglected a 9-year old foster child the couple cared for and later adopted. Two months ago, DHS launched a critical incident response team to look into the case after the boy was treated for injuries at a Portland hospital. The boy was hospitalized for more than a month for fractures to the ribs, fingers, vertebrae, pelvic bones and a severe untreated third degree burn to a foot. Physicians said the child’s injuries were a result of child neglect and abuse. The abuse is believed to have taken place since January 2008. The child was placed with DHS after being released from the hospital. The Hartwigs cared for six minor children in their home ranging from 9 through 13. Only two of the children are the Hartwigs’ biological children. The remaining four, including the victim, were adopted by the Hartwigs. All six children were removed from the home and placed in foster care through DHS when the investigation began.…

Dakota Valkyrie has a story posted in our forums about some kids who were removed from a home so disgusting that a detective who went there almost puked from the smell. The article had some pretty nasty details such as a 6-month-old boy drinking from a bottle “so dirty that it was black in color” with a dead roach was floating around inside. The boy also had had a roach leg and other roach parts stuck to his eye. Source

Sandy Ridge, NC – On April 22, William Plaster Jr. and Shannon Fortenberry had their 4-month-old son seen in the emergency room at Morehead Memorial Hospital. An examination of the infant revealed three broken ribs, a broken right leg and severe head trauma that resulted in retinal and brain hemorrhaging. An MRI showed signs of healing ribs, a sure sign of previous abuse. The baby boy is currently in a permanent vegetative state with irreversible neurological damage – he is not expected to survive. Though details are a bit sketchy at this point, authorities believe Plaster and Fortenberry plotted to kill the child and have been systematically abusing him since early January. Plaster initially tried to pull the bullshit ‘baby fell off the couch’ excuse, but the child’s numerous injuries were much to severe. “The boy could have been beaten, shaken, or he could have been dropped,” said Maj. Durward Bennett of the Stokes County Sheriff’s Office. I’m thinking it was a repeated combination of all three…and then some. Plaster and Fortenberry both have other kids, but those children didn’t live with them.…

GRESHAM, Ore. – Back in October, 1-year-old Ariana Magathan was being cared for by her grandmother, Carolyn Bellamy, when 911 was called by someone reporting that the little girl had fallen out of bed and was knocked unconscious. She died four days later, just shy of her 2nd birthday. But medical examiners were not buying the story. The injuries Ariana suffered were not consistent with a fall out of a bed, and more consistent with someone playing bongos on it with their fists. “The Medical Examiner has described the cause of death as violent blunt force trauma to the head. It has been agreed that the injury is not consistent with a fall out of bed,” Sgt Rick Wilson with the Gresham Police Department said. So on Wednesday a grand jury indicted Bellamy on felony murder and manslaughter charges. On Thursday, police arrested Bellamy at her home and put her in jail without bail.…

Minneapolis, MN – Investigators are calling it one of the worst cases of child abuse they have ever seen. A 6-year-old boy was viciously beaten because he supposedly misbehaved at school. When interviewed by authorities, the child said “my daddy whooped my butt.” His “daddy” isn’t his daddy at all – he’s mommy’s boyfriend. According to authorities, 37-year-old Troy Lamont Clay tied the child to a pole in the basement and flogged him 60-100 times with an electrical cord. And the child’s mother, 30-year-old Jacquelyn Wander Williams, just sat there and watched. “Mom was right there, she sat down, watched it happen and did not lift a finger to stop it, nor did she lift a hand to give this kid first aid, didn’t bring him to the hospital, didn’t treat him,” said Minneapolis police Lt. Greg Reinhardt, head of the department’s child abuse unit. There was bruising from the child’s neck down to the top of his butt. “When the child was brought to the hospital and they did an exam, the doctor looked at his back and there wasn’t a square inch of the child’s back that didn’t have a mark on it.” He went on to say the beating was barbaric, like something out of the dark ages.…

Whisperswing brings us the story of Linda Flores –  a 41-year-old Reno woman accused of trying to snatch a 7-month-old baby right off her mother’s chest. Flores reportedly approached the woman, who was carrying the infant in a chest carrier, grabbed the baby’s arm and declared the baby belonged to her. The two women began to struggle as Flores attempted to remove the child from the carrier – both the mother and her child were roughed up a bit in the process. Flores fled when a security guard approached, but was soon apprehended and arrested. Source: RJG.com

Erlanger, KY – Raymond Jackson is behind bars, facing a somewhat lengthy prison sentence, because he’s a fucking moron. According to authorities, the imbecile allowed and encouraged his toddler step-daughter to drink a mixture of gin and iced tea while he was caring for her and his 6-month-old son over the weekend. The girl was rushed to the emergency room after mom returned home from work and found her passed out and unresponsive. Blood tests taken at the hospital revealed the 2-year-old child’s BAC was .25 – more than three times the minimum for a driver to be presumed impaired under Kentucky law. It’s a damn miracle the kid didn’t die. Raymond’s wife, Amanda, was granted emergency custody of both children and a restraining order against Raymond was granted. In her petition for the order, Amanda claimed the 2-year-old also had fractured ribs and bruising on her head. Poor kid has already been through what amounts to a knock-down, drag-out bar fight and she probably hasn’t even mastered her ABC’s yet…way to go, dickhead.…

Staten Island– A 52-year old father named James Moss was arrested last week for allegedly shoving his naked 9-year old son into an oven. The reason? Moss said he was punishing his son, Christopher Moss, for going through his wallet. Moss allegedly told his son, “I’m going to burn you alive.” Even though the oven was not turned on, Christopher still suffered second and third degree burns from his father’s tirade because Moss allegedly held the boy’s hands for two minutes over the flames of the stove’s burner.  Moss is also accused of slapping his son in the face, hitting him with a spatula and dragging him across the floor. According to the report, Moss is not backing off and says the punishment was justified. Moss was charged with second degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child. Christopher was taken to a hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.…

Layton, UT – Ethan Stacy was in the middle of a custody dispute. A judge in Ethan’s home state of Virginia handed down the order that he would spend the summer with his mother, Stephanie, in Utah. So, on May 1st, Ethan boarded a plane with his mother and set off to Utah. Ten days later, the 4-year-old boy was dead. Over the course of 10 days, Ethan was beaten, scalded, tortured and ignored. The man responsible for the abuse was mommy’s new husband, Nathaneal Sloop. According to court documents, the systematic abuse of the child began on May 5th. Stephanie told detectives that on that day, Nate grew angry at Ethan. He took the child in the bedroom to be disciplined and shut the door. Stephanie could hear her son being slapped repeatedly. When Nate was finished, she entered the room and observed her son’s badly beaten face and head. Though his face was already beginning to swell, Stephanie failed to seek medical assistance. She said she was scared of Nate.…

Another day, another baby shaker, another piss-poor excuse of a father. Mystery has posted a story in the forums about James Hogle – a 22-year-old man who pulled the old ‘shake-and-break’ trick on his infant and later blamed it on the couch. He’s been charged with reckless injury and physical abuse of a child. Source: The Journal Times

Albuquerque, NM – Monique Cotto may not be a “police person,” but she is an ignorant fucking douche who should have her baby making factory condemned, torn down and burned. Immediately. When she showed up at Metro Detention Center to visit with her baby daddy, a guard noticed her 18-month-old son was sporting a rather strange fashion accessory – the child had a plastic handcuff locked around his ankle. “He was crying a lot, he looked in pain,” said Corrections Officer Lieutenant Jason Ellis. The cuff was cinched so tightly it left purple impressions on the boy’s skin after it was removed. Monique was arrested for suspected child abuse. You’re just dying to hear her brilliant explanation, aren’t you? According to her, two days prior to the jail visit, she supposedly left her son alone with a friend. When she came home, she found the boy with handcuffs on both legs and a pillow covering his face, nearly suffocating him. Also according to her, the boy was gasping for air when she arrived.…

Bartlesville, OK – A 4-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital last month with fractures to the back of his skull and to the lower right side of the skull. It has been reported that air had entered (the victim’s) skull and brain area due to the fractures to his skull.” The child was also bruised in various places on his back, legs and genitals. Police believe the person responsible for those injuries is 28-year-old David Laird. The exact relationship between him and the child is unknown, but I’m betting he’s mommy’s boyfriend. Anyway, when interviewed, Laird initially told officers the child had fallen off the clothes dryer and onto the floor. After examining the child’s numerous and rather severe injuries, doctors called bullshit and went on to describe the injuries “as being from a great amount of force such as (the victim) being inside and operating clothes dryer, being thrown out of the dryer and then thrown down a couple flights of stairs.” What now, Mr. Laird? …

Gary, IN – Last Wednesday, Leon Walker spent the final hours of his short life begging his daddy to untie the electrical cord binding his wrists. He promised to be a good boy if he was just let loose – his fingers were turning blue. The vile piece of fucking shit who dares call himself a father didn’t untie the boy. Instead, when it appeared as if Leon was trying to remove the cords himself, Burns beat the life out of the child with a belt and his fists, breaking the child’s neck in the process. Leon was just 5 – today would have been his 6th birthday. Why? What could a child possibly do to deserve such a brutal end? According to little Leon’s sperm donor, 28-year-old Leon Burns, the child “lied about eating a roll from the stove.” Father and son had just reunited with each other three months ago when Leon moved in with Burns, his girlfriend, 32-year-old Rochell Johnson, and her four children. During that time, Burns admitted to beating the child at least three to four times a week.…

Telford, TN – I’ve said this elsewhere and more than once–where you’re from doesn’t exclude you from being classified as an inbred redneck backwoods hick, and while you’re going to be as horrified as I am when you hear about the children in this case, I also suspect you’re going to want to pull out a banjo, holler for some grits, and reach for your spittoon. Let me hit you up with a few of the details that led to the arrest of 37-year-old Mary E. Tittle and 53-year-old Robert Simons III (among others). These “details” include children age 7 to 13 who had never (yes–never) been to school, could neither read nor write, were living in conditions that included no running water, had not bathed in at least two weeks, were completely unclear on their own ages, and were using the yard as a bathroom. One of these children, a girl estimated to be about 10, was suffering from an infection caused by a rat bite, was in stage 3-4 renal failure, and had not recently (if ever) received medication or treatment for either condition.…

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – I do not know 37-year-old Sherry Mahlmann personally. Aside from what I have read regarding this specific incident, I have no idea how hard her life may be – especially raising a kid with special needs. But what she did to her two young sons on Wednesday angers me like you wouldn’t believe. Police say that she went to a Hertz near the Easterwood airport and rented a car for one day. While she was inside, her 6-year-old son came in and begged her not to leave him and his 10-year-old brother who requires a feeding tube. Mahlmann, a teacher, reassured him that they would call daddy. Half-an-hour after leaving, the 6-year-old came back inside the agency and told the employees that he and his sibling had been abandoned. They went outside and found his brother inside a van, Mahlmann nowhere to be found. She returned two hours later and told a policeman that he needed to arrest her. Which he did. She was subsequently charged with two counts of child abandonment and released on $18,000 bond.…

Cleveland, OH – The 15-year-old boy just couldn’t stand to see his brother being abused any longer, so he decided to do something about it. “My little brother is downstairs tied up to a table and he’s trying to get out,” said the young caller to a 911 dispatcher. “Who did this to him?” asked the dispatcher. My mom makes my sister tie him up every night or she gets beat.” When police arrived at the home from where the call originated, sure as shit, there was a kid tied to a coffee table. The boy was hog-tied with duct tape and a shoestring around his neck and feet tied him to the table. His parents, 37-year-old Andreia Huffman and 32-year-old Jason Dunikowski, were sound asleep nearby. After freeing the kid from the table, the responding officers discovered discoloration in the boys hands and feet, indicating he had been tied up for quite some time, and it appeared as if his nose had been broken.  Now that mom and dad were awake, they had some ‘splainin to do.…

Midland County, TX- On Monday, Midland County deputies were alerted by CPS after a woman showed up at their office with a cell phone video of her roommate, 29-year old Kristi Michelle Kaulaity. The woman, a 33-year old female, told deputies Kaulaity was intoxicated around 2:30 a.m. last Friday and became impatient with her 1-year old son. The woman said she started video taping Kaulaity with her cell phone because she was concerned for the child. The video showed Kaulaity pushing her son away from her several times before she put him on the couch, grabbed a pillow and covered his face with it while he cried. The woman said when she saw the child’s body go limp and his lips turn blue, she begged Kaulaity to allow her to take the child to the hospital. Kaulaity allegedly replied that if her son went to bed with her (Kaulaity), he would wake up dead. The woman told officers that was when she took the boy from Kaulity and kept him in bed with her throughout the night.…

Cape Coral, FL- Honestly, I am not picking on Florida today. Morbid is still hung over from his late night partying at the local drag-queen palace and Jaded is still being questioned by police about a letter David Hasselhoff received in the mail that was titled, “10 Things I Want To Do To You With A Can Of Cheez-Whiz”. So, I am just getting a couple short ones up for now. Officers were contacted this last Saturday by the Department of Children and Families concerning a possible child abuse case. A detective went to the home of 32-year old Albert Solomon Griffin and spoke with his wife who is the stepmother to his 6-year old child. The stepmother said that the child received a spanking by Griffin earlier in the week after the child lied about brushing their teeth. Griffin removed his belt and struck the child numerous times causing large bruising on the child’s legs, upper thighs, buttocks, both arms and forearms, and the torso and back areas. Albert Solomon Griffin was charged with child abuse.…
