CANDLER, N.C. – This past April, 4-year-old Trenton Michael  Scott was found dead in the trailer he shared with his mother and his mother’s live-in friend. The little boy had been beaten to death. Now reports are that at the time of his death, he was legally drunk.

Heather Bensen, 29, called 911 shortly after 6 a.m. to report that when she checked on her son before leaving for work, she found him dead.

Oh my God!” the sobbing woman told a dispatcher. “He looks like he’s been beaten to death.”

An autopsy revealed Trent had a blood alcohol level of 0.12 percent (well above the 0.08 legal driving limit), and died from a lacerated liver.

He also suffered blunt force trauma to his abdomen and chest, ligature strangulation on his neck, eight broken ribs, a fractured skull, broken teeth, bit marks on his back and chest and numerous cuts and bruises all over his body.

Police would arrest 24-year-old William Godfrey Hedden and charge him with first-degree murder.…

Mother Pleads Guilty To Smothering Infant Son

July 29, 2011 at 11:23 am by  

OGDEN, Utah — I promise you that I am not looking for these dead\abused kid stories this morning, but I got one more.

While in court before a judge answering to murder charges, 27-year-old Jewell Hendricks admitted she smothered her infant son.

“Are you doing it because you are, in fact, guilty?” Second District Court Judge Michael DiRida asked Hendricks. “Yes, your honor,” Hendricks said, sobbing.

Prosecutors say that Hendricks felt that the stress of being the new mother of premature twins could be substantially alleviated if she were short one kid.

She liked 2-month-old Robert the least, so in January 2010, she covered his crying face with a sleeping bag and bear-hugged him until he stopped, then reportedly sat on his body for several hours.

Robert would die from blunt force trauma to the head and smothering. Court documents stated Robert had a skull fracture, bruising on the head and arms, a broken collarbone and bleeding of the eye.

As part of Hendricks’ plea deal, prosecutors dropped child abuse charges and will only recommend she serve 15 years in prison.…

OKLAHOMA CITY — In a story that echoes the one below this one, we have another family participating in the systematic abuse of a little girl. Police have arrested a woman after finding a 19-pound, 5-year-old girl being forced to live in a closet.

A DHS worker was sent to the home of 31-year-old Asusena Marie Gonzalez after they had received reports that her daughter was made to “stay in a closet and was given a cup to urinate and defecate in.” When the worker got to the home she eventually called police asking for help in removing a neglected child from the home.

When police got to the home, they found the girl to be severely malnourished with arms and legs so thin you could see the bones at her joints. “She had very little muscle tissue on her bones,” the report said.

Officers also noted the 5-year-old girl, who had a couple of small cuts on her arms, wouldn’t look at them when they questioned her and was unintelligible when she did speak.…

Phoenix, AZ – I hate to start the morning with these kind of stories because they are infuriating. As some of you may remember, last week I posted the tragic story of a girl who reportedly died while playing hide-and-seek.

The reports at the time were that 10-year-old Ame Deal was playing the game with other kids late at night, when she climbed into a box in the backyard. She was not discovered untl the next morning, dead from possible positional asphyxiation or suffocation.

In the article I asked a couple questions that had me feeling something wasn’t quite right with the story. Why were these kids were out playing hide and seek unsupervised late at night and why didn’t kids notify adults immediately when they could not find the missing girl. Now we know why. It was all a lie.

The girl was padlocked inside the box overnight as punishment for taking a popsicle. Now, 23-year-old Samantha Allen and her 23-year-old husband John Allen, face first degree murder charges for putting Ame in the box. …

HARRISBURG, Pa. — A father is in jail after police say he played a little too rough with his 4-month-old son.

Police say 38-year-old Terrance McMullen was playing around with his son, tossing him in the air. Unfortunately, one throw had the boy’s head meeting a metal door frame and his skull cracked like an egg.

Most of us are aware that when a baby’s head, traveling at a high velocity, is intercepted by a hard surface, that it may be a good idea to have them checked out. Like, by  a doctor or something. But McMullen had a better idea.

McMullen simply put the screaming infant in a bedroom then closed the door behind him. It wasn’t until the boy’s mother and grandmother heard him crying, that he was rushed to the hospital suffering from a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain.

McMullen was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

“We don’t know what is more surprising about this,” police would probably say if they liked to tell racist jokes.…

Los Angeles, CA – Natasha Hubbard, 36, of Los Angeles woman was arrested after allegedly grabbing a baby from its stroller and slamming him against a truck.

Lt. Paul Vernon of the Los Angeles Police Department said that Hubbard approached the baby, his mother, Adriana Miranda, 29, and his aunt on a city street.  Witnesses reportedly saw Hubbard unbelt the child from the stroller, swing him over her head and slam him into the metal rail of a truck in view of his mother and aunt.

The two women struggled with Hubbard to get the baby back.  Hubbard allegedly fought back, trying to get the child.  The mother and her sister ran to a nearby store for protection but were turned away by the store owner.  Asshole.

Hubbard then, reportedly, fled.

Witnesses directed officers to Hubbard who apprehended her.  Hubbard was placed in jail facing charges of assault and battery. She reportedly later told detectives that she was trying to break the 4-month-old’s arm so she could eat it.  Her bail was set at $30,000.…

Glencoe, AL — Tracy Payne McCord, 40, has been arrested for abuse and torture of a special needs child, Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin said. The alleged victim is a 12-year-old boy.

The investigation reportedly began after someone saw bruising on the boy’s body. That person contacted the Glencoe Police. An investigation by Etowah County Sheriff’s Office and The James M. Barrie Center for Children was begun.

Etowah County Sheriff’s Office Chief of Investigation Michael Jones said that it is believed that abuse has taken place for about six months at a house in Glencoe. The relationship or circumstances that led to the contact between McCord and the victim has not been reported.

Sheriff Entrekin described McCord as a “career criminal.” She has reportedly also been arrested four bad check warrants.

McCord, whose booking photo is a bit odd, has been charged with torture and willful abuse of a child. She is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on $50,000 bond for these charges and an additional $4000 bond for bad check charges.…

Oklahoma City, OK — Asusena Gonzales, 31, is facing child neglect charges after police and social workers discovered her beaten and emaciated 5-year-old daughter was being forced to live in a closet.

On July 18, an employee with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services called police to ask for their assistance in removing several children from Gonzales’ home. That same employee told police the child in question was made to stay in a closet with nothing but a cup to shit and piss in.

Police said the child appeared to be emaciated and very malnourished. She had very little muscle tissue, was bruised and had several small cuts on her arms. Deputies reported that the child would not look at them when they spoke to her, and when she spoke, they couldn’t understand what she was trying to say. I’m sure it was something like, “Hey, where can a girl get a Big Mac around here?”

Gonzales told police the girl hadn’t seen a doctor in nearly four years. She said the girl was a couple weeks premature and weighed a little more than 4 pounds at birth.…

Coral Springs, FL — Lawrence Roberts is facing charges of aggravated child abuse after police say he removed his teen son’s cast with a saw, cutting off the tip of the boy’s thumb in the process.

According to an arrest affidavit, Roberts arrived at the home the 15-year-old boy shares with his mother and siblings early Sunday, grabbed a 10-inch circular saw out of his truck and attempted to remove the cast from his son’s right hand. In doing so, Roberts reportedly hacked off the tip of the boy’s thumb and damn near removed the kid’s index finger at the center. The boy also suffered a deep cut between his thumb and index finger. He was transported to the hospital for emergency surgery to repair his thumb. The cast was removed by medical personnel.

Roberts admitted to using the saw to remove the cast, but failed to elaborate on why. He was released from jail on $7,500 bond Monday.


CHIMAYO, N.M. — Police have arrested a man after they say he injected his young son with heroin on several occasions.

This all started after the sister of 9-year-old Luke Velasquez’s told her mother that the marks on the boy’s neck came from their father injecting him with heroin. The mother took the boy to the hospital where he tested positive for THC and opiates.

Initially the boy told police that a 15-year-old friend is the one who injected him with heroin, but would later admit that it was his father, Jose Valasquez, who had injected him with the drug at least 10 times. He also told them that his dad let him drink and smoke marijuana.

The sister confirmed her father’s actions and added that her father had offered drugs and alcohol to her as well, but aside from taking drink on one occasion, declined his offers explaining to him that she didn’t need drugs because she had God. Ugh. I once had someone say the same crap to me when I offered her some Boone’s Farm.…

VENICE, FL. – A woman in Florida is facing multiple child abuse charges after she was accused of using pool cleaning chemicals to clean her 18-month-old boy and his 10-year-old sister.

Authorities were notified by the 38-year-old woman’s adult son who had grown concerned over his mother’s mental health and the extreme bathing methods she had recently adopted.

This included pouring chlorine and pool shock into the pool and making the siblings immediately jump in, pouring liquid pool shock on their feet and ankles, and making them walk in powdered pool shock before rinsing their feet off in the sink.

She was doing this because she had become convinced that this was the only way to keep her kids and home free from the bugs that she claimed were poisoning her. Her son also added that recently she had started staying awake for several days, then sleeping for several days.

She is facing three felony counts of aggravated child abuse to go along with the other 10 felony charges she had acquired over the years, including child abuse charges, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, domestic battery, simple battery and 27 incident reports concerning DCF, family violence, suspicious incidents, and welfare checks.…

Gainesville, FL — Police arrested 21-year-old Tiffany Long late Tuesday after she was reportedly caught smothering a baby in her care.

The child’s mother told police she returned home from work early that evening and walked into her 10-month-old daughter’s room to find the babysitter standing over the crib holding a pillow over the child’s face. The child’s legs were flailing, the woman told police. When the woman confronted the alleged baby-shutter-upper, Long reportedly told her that it had never happened before, and asked that the woman not call police. Amazingly enough, Long was able to leave the home with her face still intact.

When police caught up with her later that evening, Long said the child had been crying uncontrollably and that she was playing peek-a-boo with the pillow to quiet her. She said she was just about to tickle the baby with the pillow by holding it over her face when mom walked in. Long then demonstrated for police how she held the pillow over the baby’s face.

She was promptly booked on charges of aggravated child abuse and ordered held on a $35,000 bond.…
