Starved to death at 2 years old…in a house full of food

Murder trial of Warner Robins father accused of starving child begins

It really must suck when you work all the time to put food on the table….and your kid still dies of starvation. That’s the excuse being offered by William Thomas Davis III, 27, of Warner Robins, GA. His 2-year old son, D’Shawn Davis, was found dead in the home in September of 2010 – D’Shawn weighed only 12 pounds and 6 ounces, and had skin sloughing off of his body from bedsores caused by laying in heavily soiled diapers for days on end. Experts testified that the child would not have been able to walk…or even lift his head.

The Momster in this story has already plead guilty to several charges against her, in exchange for the rest of them being dropped. Luckily, the charges that stuck were felony murder and cruelty to children, for which she has been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole in 30 years. Since she is 24 now, that means she should be a guest of the state well past the time she might be able to have any more babies to starve to death. She admitted her crime, and showed no remorse for the act whatsoever. I guess lack of a conscience will have that effect on some people.

There are several inconsistencies in this story (aren’t there always?), and at one point I almost found myself feeling sorry for the sperm donor. Almost. But not quite. Everybody agrees that William was the sole breadwinner for the family (which also included a healthy 5-year old girl at the time), and worked CONSTANTLY. He reportedly only came home to sleep in between jobs. His wife was supposed to be caring for the two kids, and making sure they were healthy and well taken care of. She failed. Miserably.

The night the child died, William came home and reportedly broke down in tears at seeing his son’s emaciated, lifeless body. He claimed that if he’d known the baby was not being fed, he would have done something. My question is – just how in the HELL do you not realize that your kid looks like a skeleton? He worked. I get that. There were times in my life that I worked, a lot, and only went home to sleep. I still made it a point to look in on my kids before closing my eyes at night. Yet, even during those dark days, when I had only a few minutes a day with my kids, I made sure they were safe and healthy. I just don’t buy the “I didn’t know” line. If he really didn’t know then it was a willful ignorance. He is still at least partially to blame for his son’s death.

I find it almost amusing how often we get parents on here who have names that are appropriate to the crimes they have committed. This is another example. The she-beast’s name, Sade Shamon King, seems indicative of her propensity for wanton cruelty – the term ‘sadism’ is purportedly named for one of its earliest practitioners, the Marquis de Sade. The names need a little rearranging though, to make them REALLY fit this witch. It should read Shamon King Sade. Or just shame on Sade King. Starvation is a horrible way to die, and the fact that she left this poor child to rot in his own filth for extended periods of time only makes it worse.

According to Sade(ist) they didn’t have any money for food, and she had allowed Medicaid to lapse…Not sure what medicaid had to do with it, unless it was her excuse for not taking the boy to a doctor, but the ‘no food’ claim was definitely bogus. At trial prosecutors showed pictures of a well-stocked fridge and pantry taken at the time of the boy’s death, as well as “plenty of food” simply sitting on the counter-tops. And the five year old was healthy, as were the two dogs belonging to the couple. A paramedic who responded to the call that night described the two pit bulls as “fat and healthy”. But she couldn’t feed her baby boy. Worthless hag.

The father’s bottom-feeder…oops….attorney…is attempting to convince the judge that his client was a victim, too. I think that guy must have missed his true calling – he should have been a manure salesman. Go shovel that stank somewhere else, please. Maybe we could bury both the skank and the wank in the pile of stank being created by William’s excuse-producer for hire. In addition to the starvation and rotting flesh, the baby was also kept in a small, dark room, on a bare plastic mattress – and there were food stains and chicken bones beneath the crib. So they wouldn’t feed him, but they wanted him to be able to smell the food. How considerate.

William also claimed that he had not seen his son in 3-4 weeks before D’Shawn died. Why? Was he blind? Was the baby invisible? Or did William simply not care enough to check on his son occasionally? I’m betting on the third choice. William’s attorneys are also trying to convince the judge that his son’s death only took a (relatively) short time – a matter of days. Sorry, no sale on that BS either. Starvation is one of the slowest, most painful ways to die. It can take months for a healthy 2-year old to succumb to starvation. Good Lord, what is wrong with these breeders?!? In a perfect world people as stupid as these would also be sterile, in order to prevent the spread of genetic stupidity.

The mother has already been convicted, and I hope the father gets a nice stiff sentence himself. They are both responsible for the death of this little angel, regardless of whatever excuses they might have come up with. Apathy and stupidity are no excuse for the starvation of a 2-year old. Ever.

Thanks go to Tonya, a friend of mine who actually called me about this story. And to any others who sent in tips about this that I am unaware of.

    this makes me sick, as a single mom with 2 kids, its hard to make ends meet sometimes, BUT i would never let my kids go without eating. I have put the bills off, and applied for foodstamps, gone to foodbanks, and even asked my church for help. When times were really tough I went without so my children could eat.

      We’ve been there when I was growing up. My mum had just separated from my dad, we’d moved 300km to a new city and Mum couldn’t find work. We grew chokos, you buy one from the shops, let it sprout and it grows into a new vine. Ta-da, more chokos. There’s no excuse to let a child go hungry while adults enjoy their luxuries. People who complain they don’t get enough on welfare often find enough money to go out drinking or for smokes. These people weren’t poor, they were stupid and just didn’t give a shit.

    I cannot, for the life of me understand how a parent could watch their child slowly die and on top of it be the cause. Even hell is to good for that she demon.

    I have been reading this site for about a year, and this is my first post.  I was abused and raped (by my father) as a child (ages 4-7 years old), and now that I am an adult with children of my own I can never understand how these worthless parents are allowed to breed.  I have started reading this site because it is important to me to see worthless human beings (the parents that do this) get what they deserve. 
            How can the “father” of this child not see what was happening?  worthless pieces of shit!!!!!  I know that I do not make a lot of money, but I always make sure my children eat before the adults.  I will not eat if we do not have enough for everyone because my children need it more than I do. 
               My “father” never got into trouble for raping me all those years, so for me to see the stories where the “parents” get their asses thrown into jail.  Also, now that I am working on my issues about things that happened I have started school for psychology.  I want to help all of the precious children that go through all of this because it will take years to get over it.
              I am sorry for talking for so long but this just pisses me off.  I do want to say thank you to the writers because you have opened people’s eyes to what happens behind closed doors.  We need to help these children, and if you even have a suspicion that a child is being abused seek help for them!!!  Let’s not throw these children by the wayside.

    As someone who grew up in poverty…we didn’t have much. Of course, we weren’t able to eat whenever we wanted, but we had three meals a day…didn’t hit all the food groups, but when she could, mom would get us fruits and veggies and make wonderful snacks with them.
    I do not and will not to this day, understand why ANYONE would intentionally starve a child, and after reading this, I can’t understand why the father would go without a day to check up on his children. I know all about working two jobs, did it myself…but I ALWAYS, first thing, when I came home, went into my children’s bedrooms, and kissed their sleeping foreheads and told them I loved them. If this man was selfless enough to work his ass off to pay bills and rent, then he would have been that kind of parent. I say he got what he deserved, because he neglected to pay attention to his child’s physical demeanor.
    Especially a two year old boy…I had two of them…when daddy came home, they were both up, so happy to see him (he worked third shift), even greeted him at the door after waking mommy up screaming how daddy was home.
    It breaks my heart to know that a baby died starving, alone, and scared…and to think there are people out there that would lie, cheat, and steal to have a child, but can’t…idiots like this just abuse the priviledge….
    breaks my heart indeed…

    I wonder what they told the poor little 5 year old about her brother before his death…  Probably that he was sick or something…

    Thanks for a great write up to a sad, sad story.  Poor baby!  Un-freaking-believable :(

  • Robinlakemiller

    You are so right! Thank you for writing what I was thinking!

    my soon to be five month old weighs 17 pounds…… I can’t even imagine. That poor little guy.

    Recommendation: nailed into leaky coffins and dumped in an abandoned quarry.

    Standard child abuse paradigm. Fairly normal looking family, until you check the locked closet where there’s a stunted waif caked with its own poo.

    Inteh movie 7, there is a scene in which a man has been forced to lie in one place until he atrophies away.  The murderer has him on an anti-biotic IV, the room is full of air-fresheners, and the police STILL pinch their noses when they walk in.   Anyone in theat home would SURELY have smelled that poor baby rotting away. 
    Take the children away, lock the murderer and her accomplice in with the corpse, and set the whole thing on fire.

    You know, whoever the genius was who decided against cruel and unusual punishment is a damn idiot!!  (ok, yes I know there’s a lot of them, but just saying!)  An “eye for an eye” would be brilliant in a case such as this one!  Let that bitch simmer in her own urine and feces and of course withhold food or drink and let her ROT!  Because imo, sitting in a jail cell, receiving 3 meals a day, being allowed to interact with other people and getting time for exercise and fresh air is too much of a luxury for that evil bitch…after all, that poor baby boy had to die alone and suffering like that!  Horrible! 

    Now, as for the father….um, I can’t believe that line of bullshit.   Even with him leaving early and coming home late…he would have/ should have been able to SMELL the horrifying torture that was happening to that little boy!
