What Did Nathaniel Hester Do To His Child?

August 5, 2009 at 9:10 am by  

Dalton, GA – The details are sparse, but the 911 call is chilling – one-month-old Piper Hester’s mother, Kristen Hester, can be heard screaming in anguish as she tried to save the life of her baby. Kristen called 911 at 3:28 a.m. Sunday after finding her husband passed out on the floor and the child next to him, bloodied and not breathing  – in that call, she could be heard blaming the child’s father, Nathaniel Hester, for injuring the child. “Nathan why the fuck is she bleeding, why do you have her blood on you, You mother-fucker, I’m gonna kill you, you’re going to jail, why are you bleeding, Nathan you killed her.” Later in the call, Kristen could be heard saying, “What are you high on, you’re going to jail, I’m not high on anything.” When emergency crews arrived on the scene, they found that Piper was dead and Nathaniel had fled the scene.

*Warning: The 911 call is more than just a bit disturbing.


An autopsy on Piper’s body revealed that every single one of her ribs on one side of her little body were broken, she had a large skull fracture and a broken leg. The cause of death – blunt force trauma to the head and torso. “It was the worst abuse I’ve ever seen of a child,” said coroner Bobbie Dixon. What the hell did he do to that child?

About an hour after emergency crews arrived at the house, Nathaniel returned, he was intoxicated. When he attempted to enter the home, he was tased. (You don’t know how badly I wish I could replace the word ‘tased’ with the words ‘shot dead’). Both parents were taken in for questioning – Kristen was released, Nathaniel was arrested. He has been booked on charges of cruelty to children, murder, and obstruction of justice. Bond was denied. Authorities believe drugs and alcohol may have been a factor in the baby’s death.
