Susie Quartey Sexually Abuses and Beats Three-Year-Old Daughter Jolyn Torpoh to Death

Posted on by 47 comments

susie-quartey.jpgIn Aurora, Colorado, Susie Ida Quartey, 35, called 911 to report that her three-year-old daughter, Jolyn Torpoh wasn’t breathing. When officers arrived at their home, the child was dead. Quartey told police she was carrying Jolyn on her back when she and her daughter fell onto rocks in the family’s backyard.

However, police believe Quartey beat her daughter repeatedly with a metal towel rod and a clothes hanger. Autopsy photographs show that Jolyn suffered at least 50 blows, which resulted in puncture wounds and bruises along her legs, face and backside.

Quartey has been charged with sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and assault with a deadly weapon, both felonies. She is also charged with child abuse resulting in bodily injury, which is a misdemeanor.

Quartey is an immigrant from Ghana, and is being held on $500,000 bond because she’s considered a flight risk.

I’m not sure why this so-called mother has been charged with sexual assault. The newspapers reported that the child was found naked by police, but the coroner must have found something else.

Poor baby girl. Sounds like she had an awful and short life.

    People shoudn’t think that what Susie is going through can’t happen to anybody. It wouldn’t be easy for a mother to nurture a child and then decide to take the life of that child all of the sudden. Accident happens, it could happen in so many forms. Also we know what alliens in foriegn countries go through in seeking medical assistance.I think people shoudn’t be very judgemental.

    i know that the police exaggerated the injuries.I saw Jolyn the day before she died and her mom had told me she fell in their backyard,it wasn’t a story she concorted after the girl died.the reason why i am saying the injuries were exaggerated is because of the sexual abuse charge,that was BULL.Bridget about your paris case,u r totally right,look at how brandy was treated and even Eve ,she was sent to jail the first time she drove under the influence.

    There are plenty of white (and other nationalities) represented on this site, unfortunately. Brutality crosses all socioeconomic lines, there are monsters everywhere. Perhaps the HANDLING of this case itself IS different because of the accused race.It probably is. I am white but have mixed race siblings, husband and child. I know racism is alive and well in America, pervasive throughout all institutions, that’s a fact I will not dispute.If Paris Hilton were a black male (or probably almost anyone else)she would have BEEN in jail the first time she got pulled over.But all that still can’t change the nature of Jolyn’s injuries. They are more than suspicious if her mother is trying to say they happened from a fall on gravel. From the discription of her injuries, it looks more like she fell from a high place onto a bed of nails–puncture wounds, and bruises all over her face and body. But maybe this info is warped, I hope it is. But it doesn’t change the fact that this poor baby girl died a painful and frightening death. I can only hope that is was quick and not at the hands of her mother. It’s just damned sad.

    wow, another chance for ignorant white middle aged people to bash on a black person.did ever stop to think may be susie was right and what she’s going through,she has lost her child,do any of you know what that means or even feel like.i personally know susie and i certainly know without a doubt how much she loved, still loves and misses her daughter.there is nothing in the US considered as an accident,if a child falls he or has has been pushed,if a child doesnt like to eat,he or she has been starved to death.WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!!! so u know what keep on saying the crap u are used to saying,because tomorrow it might be u in the hot seat.i know for a fact that this is a race issue,the case will have been treated alot differently if it were a white person.SO GO TO HELL.

  • R.I.P. Jolyn

    All of you didn’t even know Susie. I actually did. She wasn’t that kind of person. Who knows what actually happened. All that I know is that you shouldn’t be judging people the way you are. Whether or not if she killed Jolyn. To everyone who isn’t judging her, THANK YOU. You are showing that you aren’t as judmental and indecent as these other people.

    R.I.P. Jolyn – Your loving smile and beautiful laughter will be missed dearly.

    Hey, Dr. R: How about the fact that there are LAWS in this country regarding ERs not being able to turn away someone (PARTICULARLY immigrants) because they have no insurance or ability to pay? That’s no excuse. A healthcare facility will not jeopardize its operation because someone doesn’t have the ability to pay.

    How about the fact that there were PUNCTURE WOUNDS identified on the child’s body? I’ve fallen on rocks and never gotten puncture wounds – abrasions and bruises but not HOLES. I’m quite sure the forensic pathologist will be doing an analysis of the holes in that child in comparision with the broken BLOODY towel rack that was found.

    Yeah, I’m reserving my opinion and will base it on what the FP comes up with. Maybe I’m a cynic, but I’ve seen far too many people claim their innocence when they are, in fact, lying through their teeth. It’s a little more difficult for physical evidence to lie.

    Has anyone thought about the Police side or belief for the cause of Death of this child as coming from one side? What about Susie’s own actual story -the events that unfolded after the fall? We readers are so quick to issue the Guilty Verdict! Immigrants in the US face a lot of difficulties accessing health care not only for their toddlers & kids but for themselves if they don’t have Health Insurance, and inaffordabilty alone could spell death if Professional Medical attention is not sought immediately, which is damn expensive! Most tend to hope against HOPE that a simple First Aid application should work, though not advisable u’ve got to understand where they are coming from! It might have been too late when she finally made the 911 call perhaps out of confusion or the particular situation she finds herself.
    Her actual side of the incident should be
    carefully studied and not completely written off by being Judged guilty by the Police and we the readers!!!

    I hope she did not do it. If she did then that’s a horrible thing to do. Why have children if you can’t bare the responsibilities? Why let the child suffer for your unhappiness? The child did not ask for this!!! When will this stop?

    Puncture wounds and a broken towel rack with pointed ends that had blood on them, found in the trash, no less. If a child sustained a fall and had puncture wounds from the fall, wouldn’t any reasonable parent rush that child to the ER to have the wounds cared for? I don’t know what happened but I would sure like to know. If she didn’t do it herself, why didn’t she protect her child and/or report the abuse?

    If the child was indeed hurt in the fall, why wasn’t the mother? And why did the child have marks on her backside and her face? If the mother was carrying her on her back the child’s back would be wounded, but why her face? Puncture wounds?!?! Puncture wounds are not caused by a fall from a few feet unless she was falling on a bed of nails. Yes, God will have the final say and I have a strong suspicion He doesn’t much like child abusers.

    All the comments I have read so far have assumed that the woman is guilty. Has it occured to you that only the bits that have cause for speculation are being published? She has 2 kids but only one is bruised (from the fall). If she was abusive then why weren’t there any marks on the other kid???? Has it occured to you that it is the truth? God will show his hand and the truth will be revealed.

    Isn’t it great that the child abuse penalty is so nice and low.NOT EVEN TWO F**CKING YEARS!!!This is a quote from the cbs4denver.com “The sexual assault charge carries a penalty of four to 12 years in prison and up to life on probation. An assault conviction carries two to six years in prison and the child-abuse charge carries a penalty of six to 18 months in jail.” The damn child abuse is what killed her, God this country’s child abuse laws need an overhaul and right now.

    I use carrying cloths to wear my baby and I cannot imagine how hard I would have to fall and from what a great distance to cause that kind of injury to my daughter. If the “rocks in the backyard” could cause such horrific injuries to the little girl, why wasn’t the mother injured at all? Puncture wounds?!?!?! A fall on rocks wouldn’t do that!

    The thought of what this poor little girl went through just makes me shiver. It is unreal how evil and uncaring people have become. You have to wonder, who heard her screams and did nothing? I think of all the childless couples out there who would have spoiled a 3 year old princess ROTTEN and the poor baby had to be born to this woman. Life is so unfair.

    For the life of me I can’t understand how anyone can intentionally hurt their own (or any) child! My daughter is 7 months old and I couldn’t even stand when her father would let out a frustrated sigh because she wouldn’t stop crying. When she was 2 months old, I trimmed her finger nails for the first time. I accidentally nicked her finger and she started crying…I was devastated! I was so hurt that I ACCIDENTALLY hurt my baby, how can anyone intentionally hurt these innocent, defensless angels that God has BLESSED us with??

    Its so sad to read these stories…and even sadder when we read stories about children who kill their abusive parents as a means to escape their Hell. Then they end up in jail for doing what their parents were slowly and painfully doing to them.

    HEARTBREAKING.

    I would ask why, but in the end I dont know if I really want to know why. The only thing I can hope is that the poor child is in a happier place now. The pain she must have felt and the terror must have been horrifying…all by the hand that was supposed to love her.

    An amazingly imaginative excuse: “She fell on rocks”. Why do they bother with these lame excuses? Maybe if she came clean she would not end up in the slammer forever. I hope.
