Penn. Breeders kill baby with cinder block

Man Charged With Killing Newborn Daughter:

Parents charged in infant’s gruesome death:

Parents charged in death of newborn:

In Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania 20-year-old Jennifer Barrise gave birth to a baby daughter on May, 28th. You would think that would be cause for celebration but instead it was the motive for murder.

According to reports the sperm donor, 20-year-old Christopher Fitzpatrick, said that they couldn’t afford the baby and Barrise allegedly handed over the newborn to Fitzpatrick after giving birth in a car. She allegedly knew what Fitzpatrick intended on doing.

Fitzpatrick is accused of taking the baby behind his place of employment and dropped a cinder block twice on the baby’s head before burying the baby in the woods.

I’m having a hard time deciding what to type next because I don’t think that there are any words ever created in any language to aptly describe my disgust for these vile animals.

A lot of excuses are going to be made for them probably but let me tell you that they’re all bullshit.

They can’t say the baby was stillborn because Barrise’s 11-year-old sister was there at the time of the birth and heard the baby cry.

They can’t say that they didn’t know about Pennsylvania Safe Haven Laws because Fitzpatrick allegedly told relatives that he took the baby to a hospital.

They can’t say it’s because they’re scared because they have no experience in raising a child because they already had a 1-year-old daughter.

This was nothing more than the selfish act of a couple of punks who didn’t want to be burdened with another child and probably thought the one they already had was a burden.

‘They’ should tie these two down and drop cinder blocks on them every hour on the hour except on their heads, that would be too quick. Let them get the pain they gave to their own flesh and blood a hundred fold until they’re begging to have it all ended.

Why yes I can be Old Testament at times.

Thanks to Grace for the tip.

    I posted this to my FB when it was first posted here. My 16 y/o cousin in California commented horrified about what happened to this poor baby. She and I had a lengthy conversation, to which she mentioned one of her friends just found out that she’s pregnant and is unsure if she wants to do adoption or keep the baby. I told her, if she ever has any doubts after she has the baby and decides to keep it, to gently remind her of Safe Haven Laws. Paige, my cousin, had no idea they even existed. She’s going to pass the message along if she hears something like this that would warrant the reminder. She looked up everything about it for her state and everything. I’m so proud of her. I told her that the only prevention for this kind of thing is to not turn a blind eye and to raise awareness too. She agrees. I also told her, that if you read through here you can figure out the obvious and subtle signs of abuse. I guess that because of this, she wound up blowing the whistle on a friend of her’s father for her. He’s now in jail. GO PAIGE! I couldn’t be happier about the results of that conversation we had and with her reading here.

    OMFG!  REALLY?  What incredible monsters.  They could have given the baby to about a thousand different people who would have loved and cared for that baby.  Oh wiat, but they were selfish assholes so they figured, if I can’t have it no one can! 
    Cinder block to the head, I just threw up in my mouth a little.  The only thing that makes me feel a little less sick is thinking about hitting  both  the  douches in head with a cinder block. 
    RIP little angel.
    FUCKING disgusting wastes of breath, rot in hell!

      They should be left alone in a room with a bunch of parents for just five minutes. Because in that 5 minutes won’t have to worry about anything else,because they will be on there way to HELL!!! with no return. Children are a gift from god. If you didn’t want to get pregnant you should have kept your legs closed and your penis in your pants..There no excuse for this!!

    My mouth literally fell open when I read this.  I don’t even know what to say except that I hope that every day of their pathetic lives the face of their baby haunts their dreams.

    Well I’m new the posting boards here, but I went back and read several stories and the ensuing comments, and I’ve got to say I’m a little confused. There seems to be a decent amount of outrage and fair amount of time spent reporting these stories and posting comments. But I can’t find anything else? No action for reforming laws, no ‘here’s where to send your letters of outrage.’ I want to donate using that donation button on the menu above, but I’m worried I’m donating to reporting these horrific acts of violence instead of helping these kids. After reading stories back to 2008, there seems to be a real obvious connection between the majority of these stories: the child in question was already in a government child protective database, like the ones at DHS. I know someone else posted today on a different story, “jeez it’s a blog, you don’t like it don’t read it,’ but it seems like this website is a very persuasive collection of material that could act as a vehicle for promoting more funds towards child protective service agencies. Shouldn’t every child go through a parental risk evaluation after they’re born? I know there’s a lot of government waste but I can’t imagine social workers want to see this kind of violence happen. If they had the means to, they would be checking on these kids more, right? And if we had more social workers there would be more jobs? Maybe I haven’t found the link “where to send letters of concern” or something? Activist Information? I want more funds for child protective agencies to investigate abuse rather than pay out welfare benefits, I want harsher sentencing (i.e. chemical castration and the like) for violent crimes towards children, and I want to never read about a baby being torn from the world by a cinder block. I know we all want vigilante justice since the courts don’t allow punishments that involve skinning or dismembering, but more so, I just want every baby to be loved and cared for and I want to know how to make that happen. If I were smarter I could probably figure this out on my own, but who would you write to about legislative budgetary issues for DHS or other government agencies designed for child welfare? Are there groups who act in the media and not just on blogs?

      You may be barking up the wrong tree.  As far as I know, we have an amazing collection of foster parents that comment here, and the rest of us find other ways to do “our part” using the resources we have.  Since people read this site from different states and even different countries, there is no way we could post links to resources to suit every one of out readers.  I, personally, donate to charities in my area.  I know of several battered women and children shelters that are in desperate need of money, household items, clothes, toys, I even clip coupons for baby food and formula.  As for donating to CPS (or whatever it’s called in your area), I’m not sure that is even an option.  You couldn’t donate to the government, since it’s a government agency, but what are the chances that the money would DEFINITELY get allocated to that department?  Probably slim to none.  If you want to help, think about becoming a foster parent, big sister, child
      advocate, something along those lines. 
      As for donating using our donation button, you should read the caption under the donate button.  It’s for help to keep the site online.  If you like the site and would like help keep us online, feel free to donate.  If not, that’s fine too.
      Have a nice day.

    apparently she is 28 and this was her fifth child? she had a baby that was delivered by the Franklin, NJ police last year…which is about 20 miles from me right on the PA Border pretty much…this is very disturbing i’ll look for the story locally

      i live near the area and it’s not quite a news blackout but they are trying to keep the details of this private because of what you see in the casey anthony case.

    this is one of the most disturbing things i’ve read…why? why lie and say you gave the baby to the hospital and kill her instead…were they that selfish that if they couldn’t keep her then no one could? seriously? what the fuck! sorry initials for WHAT THE FUCK just aren’t good enough for this story…you need to spell it out..i’m angry

  • sandra

    hey everyone finally got a disque its kiyachan1988. This one is hard to read as is every story here between Alijah never had a chance to this one they’re getting harder specially after having my son in march and seeing him smile makes me wonder why these monsters do this to our little angels… and using a cinder block… that is heinous. I think we need to start a petition against these and make vigilant justice a legal thing sure would shorten the crime rates. As for these idiots they’ll get theirs by inmates that are missing their babies. babykillers are on the bottom of the foodchain there. And my son has started smiling and laughing. hes almost 3mos and i’m greatful for him everyday babies are a blessing and miracle.

  • Eretrea

    I would have taken the baby.  I can’t afford her either – I’ve been single-mommed with no child support working a low-wage joba nd trying to maintain home and existing child and pets which were acquired before the single-momming of me.  

    But I’d find a way.

    Damn them.

  • Grace W.

    Yeah… the lack of compassion of these animals is terrifying isn’t it? I couldn’t harm someone else’s baby or child let alone MY child… MY BABY that grew under MY HEART… but these asstards just don’t give a crap. Don’t want a baby? Don’t buy a freaking condom and wrap your tiny wang up… no impregnate your loser girlfriend again and then when she gives birth… drop a cinder block on the baby’s head! ITS FREE! Hooray for all!

    I personally relish the idea of dropping cinder blocks on various parts of their bodies for days upon end. Thats a great idea.

    I just found out I am expecting a girl so this story really hits close to home. Could NEVER kill any of my kids. Even if I was freaking penniless. What a bunch of excuses from these demonic breeders…

    • Trench Reynolds

      Congrats on the pending arrival.

      • Grace W.

        Thanks! I have a boy who is 4 and I had a miscarriage last year. It really threw me into a depression and I didn’t have the heart to try again but I am so glad I did. I am due mid-November and I am totally shooting for 11-11-11…

        A boy and a girl… I am so freaking lucky!

          I would have loved a little girl for my second baby, but I have two wonderful boys. Congrats on the new little one, I also had a miscarriage a little over a year before my youngest boy was born, it’s so wonderful to have that second little one successfully.

      Exactly, you find a way to do it, even if it means going on assisstance to keep food in their bellies and a safe, warm place for them to sleep. Or you find someome that can afford to take care of the baby, preferrably before the baby is born.

      I have a friend that is due with a girl in the beginning of August, and she has a little boy as well, it almost makes me want to have another, hopefully a girl, but I made that extremely difficult, and we really can’t afford three, two is almost more than we can handle, thank goodness the older boy finally potty trained.

        What has helped us is couponing and thrift stores. I am NOT an extreme couponer but honestly before that show I never gave it a thought. I  don’t buy cases of hot sauce and noodles, lol, but couponing has helped put (healthy) food in our belly. If I can save on soap and detergent then I have the money to buy organic vegetables and fruit. I also shop second hand stores and my friends were flabbergasted at first but now they admit my son is always the best dressed kid. You would never know his clothes are second hand. 

        Its really tough in this day and age to afford kids but we all find ways to do it. I cannot understand the thought process “Can’t afford this baby. Let me smash its skull in.”

        Btw, I hope you do try again and I hope you get that girl. I want one more after this one… but we’ll probably wait 3 years. I am glad my kids will be so spaced out.

           I’ve considered starting to coupon myself, just got to get into the habit of it. And yeah, I wouldn’t have the room for a stockpile like these ladies have (and wouldn’t do it anyhow, mother-in-law was a hoarder only kept in check because he husband was very strong-willed and put his foot down on many things, when she passed we tossed about $1,000 worth of horribly out of date food that she bought and didn’t use).

           And I love Saver’s (a store here that gives money to Candlelighters which help cancer stricken kiddoes), I can find nicer clothes there for cheaper than even Wal Mart, I bought three pairs of jeans for my oldest boy for about $15, and there was Levi’s and Old Navy jeans in there, and I have found many wonderful deals on Ebay for clohtes for my oldest (it was a couple of years ago, but I also got a Bumbo and a Boppy on Ebay too, and paid half price for each, baby still uses the Boppy today).

    I know more than 1 couple who would do anything for a child of their own to love. These pitiful excuses for human beings deserve nothing less than have every inch of their skin peeled off with a dull, rusty carrot peeler. Dropping heavy objects on their heads wouldn’t hurt them since they obviously have no brain cells. Now i am going to go hug my precious babies.

      Dirty words usually work when regular words fail you, and if you know German, it is spectacular for expressing anger.

    I can’t understand the mindset of a person who knows about the Safe Haven law and would rather murder a baby than drop him/her off at the Safe Haven.  It just makes me think that the ‘father’ got a thrill out of killing the baby.  :(

      and you know the little peanut didn’t go with one hit..that sucks ass..i can’t even believe it

  • Steve Weiss

    You know I have having a decent day until I read this. Personally I cannot fathom how anyone could do this to any baby, much less their own. What we should have seen is the mother being arrested for murdering the father for even suggesting it. I am sitting at my computer desk reminding myself of the promise I made to my daughter, and I am finding it very hard to not find a way to bail these shitbirds out, take them into the woods, and beat them until they go into convulsions.  However i made a promise to my little girl, and i intend to keep it. You should consider yourselves lucky shitbirds. You should consider yourselves damn lucky.

  • Susan Moore

    This is one of those stories that made me burst into instant tears. There is no punishment that will ever be good enough for this. Not to take away from the story but, my husband and I would have gladly taken that baby! It would have been the best blessing after having to face a fatal Pre-natal diagnosis last month for #4 that forced our hands to…I am too upset right now to reply further. R.I.P. sweet angel. My heart forever breaks for you to have been subjected to such heartless scum.

  • Anonymous

    Pathetic and heartless creatures, don’t even want to call them human beings. Breaks my heart to read this! So many people out there that want to have babies but can’t have them. Then you have sick fucks that can’t afford them so they just off them, that just pisses me off to no extreme. Can’t afford another baby then wrap it the fuck up it’s pretty cheap hell a lot of places give them away. That poor baby could of been left at a hospital, fire station or something and at least been given a chance and life. The cunt and dildo need to be tied up and drop a freaking wrecking ball on them over and over again.

  • landynsmom

    WHAT THE FUUUUUUUCK. Save haven laws. FUCK ME! This shit is god damn ridiculous. Drop the baby off at a fucking fire station. You can’t afford a lawyer for your murder trial either you stupid wastes of fucking space! This shit pisses me off even more then some of the terrible abuse cases. Give the child a fucking piss ass chance at life.
