Springdale, AR - Here’s not one, but TWO dead babies to ruin your day. Travis Fox is accused of shaking two of his babies to death a year and a half apart.
Last Wednesday, Fox’s 7 month old baby, William, was brought to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. The doctors found the injuries suspicious and Fox, 24, confessed to investigators that he violently shook the child for an extended amount of time because the child was “fussing.’”
Horrifying, sickening, enraging, but not unheard of. That’s why there’s such a thing as dontshakeyourbaby.com. But here’s where it gets mind-blowingly awful.
Investigators then found out that Travis Fox was under investigation for the September 2011 death of his 6 month old baby boy, Travis II, in another county.
In the most recent infanctide, Fox “admitted that he shook his six-month-old son for 30-45 seconds because he was ‘fussing’ . . . Mr. Fox said he was angered and tired because he was up for two days without sleep.” He also admitted drinking five beers before killing his baby.…Continue Reading
SAN DIEGO – At a bit after 5:00 p.m. on Friday, a woman walking down an alley near the Park View Apartments complex probably had the contents of her nightmares altered forever: she spotted something odd on the ground, and when she moved closer, she realized it was an infant.
It appeared that the little boy had fallen from one of the complex’s windows. She immediately called authorities, who discovered, upon arriving, that the child was severely injured. (Odd how falls from a significant height seem to affect infants that way.) Medics performed CPR and transported the boy to the hospital, but the little guy didn’t make it to 6:00 p.m.
Currently, there are more questions than answers on this case, but let me share what we do seem to know: (1) The infant’s injuries were caused by a fall from a 3rd-story window. (2) The police initially detained the boy’s 33-year-old mother for questioning but have since arrested her and are now investigating the death as a homicide; they indicate she will be charged with first-degree murder. (3) The mother, who goes by the brain-bending and seemingly unlikely name of Zewoinesh Badasso, is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.…Continue Reading
Terrell, TX - A Texas woman who was hospitalized after cutting off her baby’s arms in 2004 has recently been fired from her job at Walmart after a news crew told her employers of her past.
Dena Schlosser made headlines in 2004 after she cut the arms off of her 10-month-old daughter. Her daughter would die soon after. Schlosser was reportedly found covered in blood and singing church hymns. Schlosser would eventually tell psychiatrists that God had told her to do it.
A jury found Schlosser not guilty by reason of insanity. She was hospitalized until 2008 when a judged ruled that she no longer required treatment. Should would return to hospitalization in 2010.
Sometime between 2010 and now, Schlosser went from being a hospitalized mental patient to being a Walmart associate. A Walmart spokewoman says Schlosser, who now uses the last name Laettner, was hired in June. Schlosser was fired Monday after news station WFAA-TV told the company about her past.
I know that you are as outraged as I.…Continue Reading
DUBLIN, Ohio — Let me apologize upfront for the obscene visual of a mother performing sexual acts on her 10-month-old son that I just now put in your head, but that’s exactly what the news is reporting one Ohio woman did — in front of a camera.
Police say that on August 30, 24-year-old Ashley Jessup recorded herself performing sexual acts on her baby, then sent the video to her boyfriend in Michigan.
That man’s former girlfriend found the video and contacted police who arrested Jessup the next day. Police say she did admit to the crime.
She’s now facing life in prison if convicted on two counts of rape, one count of endangering children and one count of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor.
Spontaneous applause from strangers broke out in the courtroom after the charges against her were read.
She’ll be back in court on Monday for her arraignment so I’m sure we will have more details then.
Police are also reviewing the information to see if there will be any charges filed against the boyfriend, who already has had some equipment seized from his home.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
UNION COUNTY, NC - The trial Erica Denise Kelly started this morning. Some of you may remember her as the mother accused of murdering her newborn and then dumping the infant’s dismembered corpse near a burn pile.
Jaded posted about Kelly two years ago. If you’re unable to lift your fat finger up enough to click the link and read all the details, back in February 2009 a dead infant was found near a burn pile outside of the home Kelly and her boyfriend were moving into.
At the time reports were the baby girl still had its umbilical cord still attached, had been full-term and had been born alive. The reports of the baby having some abnormalities turned out to be that two of the baby’s limbs had been severed.
After taking some DNA samples a match would be made between the dead infant and Kelly. But not her boyfriend. All of this came to a shock to all that knew her because no one was aware she was even pregnant. She was charged with murder and concealing the birth of a child.…Continue Reading
LAKE ARIEL, Pa. – Police say a 20-year-old man from northeastern Pennsylvania murdered his newborn daughter with a cinderblock.
Christopher Fitzpatrick and his girlfriend, Jennifer Barrise, already have one child together and weren’t too thrilled that they were about to have another. Barrise gave birth to the couple’s daughter in a car back in May and during the birth, Fitzpatrick made it clear to Barrise what he was going to do.
“Have this (expletive) baby,” Mr. Fitzpatrick allegedly told Barrise. “I just want to get rid of it. I gotta do what I gotta do.” She asked if was going to kill the baby on two occasions, he remained silent both times.
The girl was born on the floor of the car and according to the affidavit, neither of the two touched her as she lay there crying. After dropping off his girlfriend, he took the baby to M n D Lawn Care where he worked. There he admitted to laying her on the ground and then crushing her skull by dropping a cinder block on her head.…Continue Reading
Indianapolis, Indiana – Four Indianapolis residents have been arrested, accused of trying to sell a baby.
Police say 36-year-old Rose Faucett and 58-year-old Phillip Hester agreed to sell Faucett’s daughter, born April 2, to 57-year-old Michael S. Overby and 50-year-old Debbie Overby. In return for selling the baby to the completely normal looking couple, they would get a whopping $300 and a place for Faucett to stay.
All four have been charged with neglect of a dependent and child selling. Michael Overby was also charged with forgery for falsely signing a paternity affidavit, claiming to be the biological father of the infant.
The real kicker here is quite disturbing; Michael S. Overby is a convicted child molester and Debbie Overby has been convicted of child neglect in the past.
“Mrs. Overby is currently on probation for neglect of a dependent, and Mr. Overby is a convicted child molester. It’s a charge from back in 1984,” said Indianapolis police Sgt. Linda Jackson. “We don’t know what the intentions were for trying to adopting this child.…Continue Reading
Tampa, FL – I’m thinking that 23-year-old Dwayne Poole didn’t think things through after he allegedly threw his 16-month-old son after he caught him playing near a wall socket.
I understand a parent reacting strongly to finding their kid about to stick their fingers into an electric wall socket, but Poole threw his baby so hard that when the infant hit his head on either the wall or a dresser, his skull was fractured causing a brain bleed.
The infant was also found to have bruises covering his legs and buttocks to which Poole admitted to police that he had caused by hitting him with an open hand and a belt.
Poole was arrested on a charge of aggravated child abuse to go along with his several previous arrests on battery charges.
His son is currently in the hospital where according to doctors, he appears to be brain dead with little chance of survival.…Continue Reading
Bullhead City, AZ- This just really makes me sick to my stomach and now I am feeling all stabby. Police were called to the emergency room of a hospital on Tuesday morning after receiving a call about the abuse of a 1-month old baby boy. Doctors told the officers the baby had bruises and sores on his body and his eyes were red and swollen shut. The baby had also suffered broken ribs and a broken femur. The infant was malnourished, dehydrated, and also showed signs of sexual abuse and shaken baby syndrome. The newborn was later transferred by medical helicopter in critical condition to a hospital in Las Vegas, but died Wednesday morning. The baby’s worthless cunt mother, 19-year old Staci Lynn Barbosa, was taken into custody immediately after taking the child to the hospital. The piece-of shit baby-daddy, 23-year old Jonathan Edward Vandergriff, turned himself in to police. Upon executing a search warrant at their home, officers found marijuana and other items that can be used as evidence in this case.…Continue Reading
Over in our forums, mystery has posted an article about Becky Eury – a woman who attempted to set her 5-week-old baby on fire while the child was strapped in his car seat. Luckily, woman’s husband was able to snatch the kid from the seat before he was injured. It is believed she may be suffering from some sort of mental malady. Ummm…duh?

Gainesville, FL – Like many of the douchebags we have featured here on the Dreamin’ Demon, Brian Linsinbigler has too much stress, very few coping skills and not nearly enough patience. Throw a fussy, crying infant into the mix and something’s gonna get broke. According to police, Brian admitted to breaking his 5-month-old son’s jaw, arm and a rib in three separate incidents. He broke the child’s arm when the infant was fussing in his crib – he was trying to plug the kid’s mouth with a binky when he violently rolled the child from his side to his back, twisting the arm behind the baby’s back and breaking it. Brian said he could hear the pop of the arm breaking as well as feel it. In another incident, Brian was angry at his boss, so he squeezed his son’s torso too hard, breaking a rib. And the jaw? According to Brian, the baby was laying on the floor when he hit him in the face with an open hand. He said he hit the child so hard his head moved.…Continue Reading
New Port Richey, FL – Thomas Carter Jr. didn’t get to enjoy life much – just seven days after he was brought into the world, he was mauled to death by Sidon – his mommy and daddy’s “lovable” 45-pound pit bull mix. As Thomas lay sleeping next to his mother, 16-year-old Nicole Koezeno, Sidon attacked – leaving more than 50 claw and puncture wounds on the baby’s back and chest. Nicole had no idea that her baby was more or less being eaten as she napped. In fact, she had no idea until someone knocked on her bedroom door at about 11:45 Wednesday morning. Nicole reportedly got up to answer the door, turned around, took one look at her bitten and bloodied infant and started screaming, “My baby! My baby! My dog bit my baby. He’s bleeding.” Jackie Welch, a neighbor who had stayed at the home overnight, claims to have heard nothing from the bedroom where Nicole, Thomas and Sidon slept. “The dog didn’t make a noise or nothing – no growling, no barking, no nothing,” she said.…Continue Reading
Murrieta, CA – Carrie McKinney, 22, was at her boyfriend’s home Saturday morning when she placed her 6-month-old son, who was strapped in a car seat, on the floor. Carrie then headed into another room with her boyfriend, Doug Ritchey, leaving the infant alone in a room with Doug’s 70-pound pit bull and 60-pound pit bull mix. After an unknown period of time, Carrie and Doug heard the child screaming – when they entered the room, Carrie noticed one of the dogs had the boy’s diaper in it’s mouth. One or both of the dogs had attacked the baby…had torn his diaper off and chewed on his scrotum. Though Carrie and Doug were fortunate enough to rescue the infant before further damage could be done, they were too late to save the kid from losing his testicles – they’d been chewed off. Yes, the child’s testicles are gone forever and he will require testosterone for the rest of his natural life. Jesus. Fucking. Christ. Thanks for lookin’ out, Ma! Though no arrests have been made, Carrie has temporarily lost custody of her son and could potentially face criminal neglect charges.…Continue Reading
Lewes, Delaware – I’m still on vacation, but we got this story in an email and I had to post it. On Wednesday, pediatrician Dr. Earl B. Bradley, 56, was arrested. The state attorney general’s office said that Dr. Bradley has been using his private practice, BayBees Pediatrics, to rape and molest as many as 100 children over the last 11 years. As for now, he was only charged with molesting or raping at least seven of his patients, some of those being infants. These charges include 33 felony counts of first- and second-degree rape, sexual exploitation of a child by photo or film, and endangering the welfare of a child. Investigators are now trying to identify children seen on videos that they say the doctor made of his activities. Authorities have started contacting law enforcement agencies in Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, where they believe the doctor may have also seen patients. Dr. Bradley had been placed on suicide watch.…Continue Reading
33,000-feet over the Atlantic - On November 24th, a 29-year-old mother was on a United Airlines flight to Kuwait. She was on her way to visit relatives with her 4-week-old daughter. At some point during the flight, the mother began breastfeeding the baby, and then fell asleep. When she woke up, she found that she had smothered her infant. Passengers and crew were alerted to something wrong when the mother began screaming for help. A doctor on the plane tried to revive the baby but was unsuccessful. The baby was pronounced dead on arrival after the plane was landed at London’s Heathrow airport where the flight had been diverted. Police are still investigating but no arrests have been made and nothing points to the incident being nothing more than a tragic accident.…Continue Reading

She was escorted her off of the floor and the Albany Police Department were contacted. She gave police a similar story and showed them a photo of a newborn infant she claimed that her friend had sent it to her.

Chandler, AZ – It’s been awhile since a story has angered me as much as this one, and I’m afraid it’s gonna stick with me. I fucking hate the vile, revolting, waste of a human being known as Brian Mark Hopf. Just his name on my tongue makes me want to vomit. This putrid steaming pile of excrement wrapped up in human skin was blessed with the ability to help create a life – a life that he basically ended early Monday morning. Authorities say that Brian’s three-week-old daughter suffered not only severe physical abuse, but was possibly sexually assaulted as well. Three. Fucking. Weeks. And it’s not looking like she is going to hit the one-month milestone. The child is hospitalized with multiple injuries, including three skull fractures, fractured ribs, retinal hemorrhaging, brain swelling, four tears to her anus, and irreversible brain damage. Good god. …Continue Reading
Kansas City, KS- Zachery Ellis is listed as an RSO, but he’s also a real POS. Police arrested his worthless ass 5 a.m. Sunday for felony abuse of a 7-week old infant. A judge denied bond for Ellis stating that the defendant is a danger to the victim. Authorities believe Ellis squeezed the child until it’s ribs broke and jerked the infant by the legs and arms, causing spiral fractures on all four limbs. The infant also sustained bruising to its lungs, spleen damage and tearing to the inside of it’s mouth. The baby was listed in stable condition Monday at Children’s Mercy after being transferred there from Heartland Regional Medical Center last Thursday night. It was an emergency room nurse in the Kansas City hospital who contacted authorities early Friday morning and indicated that the infant’s injuries were consistent with child abuse. Ellis entered a guilty plea in September 2006 to a misdemeanor charge of second-degree child molestation. In that case, Ellis allegedly had intercourse with a child under the age of 14.…Continue Reading
Oklahoma City, OK - There is still very little information on this one, but the few tidbits I could find were plenty terrifying. It all began with a frantic call to 911 early Friday morning: “There’s a woman naked in the apartments, screaming with a baby. She’s like completely naked with a baby – and the baby is also with no clothes,” the caller said. “She walked towards the Circle K store that’s right on the corner. She was like screaming, screaming very loud. She’s, like, crazy out there. I’m worried because she has her baby with her.” I’m thinking that ‘crazy’ would be an understatement in this case. A short time later, the woman’s 5-month-old baby boy was found in a trash can. He had been stabbed multiple times. …Continue Reading
