Baylee Stenman Loved Her New Puppy

Man Accused of Killing Young Girl Headed to Trial

911 call after toddler found unconscious released

Police investigate death of a 3-year-old girl

This is another one that is hard for me to get through folks. One reason, is my only daughter is the same age as the victim, this also happened in the city I have lived all my life, not more than two minutes from my home, and lastly the nature in which she died. This story has really rocked our city. Not one single person here doesn’t know her story. If you don’t have any tissues you may want to go get some.

On July 28, 2011, Leo Ackley, 25, would take Baylee Stenman, 3, to his mother’s home after he found her unconscious and unresponsive on the floor of her bedroom next to her bed and could not wake her up. He claims he drove her to his sister’s house because he did not have a phone. He was also watching Baylee’s six-year-old sister at the time because their mother, Erica Stenman, was at work. In the days following Baylee’s death CPS removed Baylee’s older sister and place her with her biological father.

Leo’s sister, who was at his mother’s when he got there, told him they needed to head to the hospital, so they headed off to Bronson Battle Creek. While en route his sister called 911. During the call she explains they are on their way to the hospital. The dispatcher asks what happened to the child. The sister explains that Baylee seemed to be “knocked out” the dispatcher then advises the two to pull over and wait for an ambulance, which they do. While on the phone waiting for Emergency Personnel to arrive you can hear on the recorded call Leo saying, “Was sleeping on the bed, she must have fell off and **** hit the chair.” The sister repeats this back to the dispatcher. The dispatcher does ask for more information about the boyfriend to which he says he was the one watching Baylee.

Once at the hospital police were called. Baylee’s death was immediately deemed suspicious based upon the extent of her injuries. She had severe bleeding behind the eyes, and her brain was swelling. In fact, her brain was so swollen it was coming out of the bottom of her skull. She also had bruising on her neck. There were two bruises on both sides, just below the jawline, and about halfway across her neck. She was placed on life support, and three days later, August 1, 2011, would be removed from life support surrounded by family and friends. Her organs would be donated the following day, and her funeral held on August 3, 2011.

It wasn’t until September 29, 2011 that Leo Ackley would have an arrest warrant issued for the murder of Baylee. He was arrested the same day by the State of Michigan’s Fifth District Fugitive Recovery Team at a relatives home in Delton, MI. The reason the arrest warrant took so long is after autopsy results, which revealed swelling of the brain stem and retinal hemorrhaging, was authorities were waiting results from two other specialists to determine how the case would move forward. They wanted a clear picture of when and how Baylee’s brain was injured that way they could determine who she was with at the time of her injuries that caused her death.

Leo Ackley has been arraigned on charges of open murder and first degree child abuse. His case has also been bonded over to Circuit Court as of November 22, 2011 at a preliminary hearing. That day in court had some very emotional testimony. One of the most heartbreaking being that of Erica Stenman, little Baylee’s mother. She is documented as having said, “I didn’t have much, I only had fifteen minutes to get out the door. She came up and sat on my bed, she said, ‘Mommy, what are you doing?’ and I said, ‘I’m in a hurry honey, I’m running late for work.’” She then goes on to say that he boyfriend called her crying and seemed really upset. She said, “He said he thinks Baylee is having seizures.” Erica then rushed to the hospital to see her daughter. She said that when she saw her daughter, that Baylee was not talking or moving.

Leo Ackley still maintains his innocence and that Baylee had to have struck her head on something from falling out of bed. It has also been noted that there has never been any evidence of Leo being violent to Erica or her two children until the incident with Baylee. He does have some defenders out there, and I’m sure we’ll see the likes of them sometime.

Baylee’s older sister is still at her biological father’s home, but a custody battle has ensued.

There is a support group on Facebook for Baylee and the justice she deserves. Baylee enjoyed riding her bike, riding in the truck, swimming, and her new puppy. She also enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.

   Rest in peace Baylee. Swim and ride bikes with the angels.

Kids Found in Dog Kennel

Police: Two Nebraska children found in animal kennel

Nebraska mom Ashly Clark busted for caging two young sons in animal kennel

Sorry folks, there is not going to be a lot of flash and flare with this one. I have another story I worked on that wore me out, so this is going to be all business. But first, I would like to give a special thanks to everyone who sent a tip in on this one. So many of our readers flooded the inbox of BB with tips that we can’t just thank one person. So, once again, thank you so much to all who sent this one in.

Now let’s get down to business. Back in October of this year, police were called to do a welfare check on children at a trailer home in North Platte, Nebraska that housed four children by an anonymous tipper. When police arrived and entered the home, they were immediately met with the stench of urine and also found trash and feces throughout the home. YUCK! I will never understand how people can live like this! Police have said that everyone living in that home was living in squalor. I personally feel that this is an understatement.

While further searching the home an officer soon found two boys, ages 3 and 5, in a 30-by-42-inch wire dog kennel that was also wired shut! Don’t worry though, “mommy dearest,” Ashly Clark (22), provided them with a small children’s mattress for them to sleep on while they were caged!  When asked about why the boys were sleeping in the cage she told officers that she put them in the kennel at night to keep them from climbing out of the trailer through a window. What the hell?

There was also a couple living in the trailer- Bryson Eyten 25 and Samantha Eyten who is 24, with their 8 year-old and 8-month-old children. Those children were not kept in kennels, but were subjected to the deplorable conditions. Police said “All of the adults were aware of the situation and were aware of the kids were being housed in the animal kennel and did nothing to stop it or report it.”

Although the children were all living in such poor conditions police have noted that none of the children appeared to be physically abused or malnourished. Still, all of the children were removed from the home and placed with state authorities, and Clark, the Eyten’s, and 20-year-old Lacey Beyer (who was also living in the trailer) were arrested that day. They have all been charged with two counts of first-degree false imprisonment, two counts of felony child abuse and misdemeanor child abuse, based on the condition of the house. All four have been arraigned on the current charges, bail was set for $50,000, and they all asked for a public defender. They have also been ordered to have no contact with the four children who were removed from the home.

Good news for this one is no dead kids.

2010: The Year in Bad Breeders

Rather than pick just one Bad Breeder who was the worst in 2010 we thought that we’d bring the worst from each blogger here at (P)BB.

First up is ihavekids2…

Adam Baker – This one kills me for several reasons. First, it’s practically in my (and Trench’s) backyard. Second, this child survived CANCER … only to (probably) die at the hands of her breeder and/or step-breeder. This little girl got handed the shitty end of a short stick in life and she survived it, only to get moved to the other side of the world from everyone who knew and loved her, and might have helped her. Neither “parent” cares enough about this child to want to see her murder solved, probably because they themselves are responsible for it. And her biological mother is a shitbag too, because if she’d been part of Zahra’s life, like a mother is supposed to be, she might have been able to save this child.

James Edward “Juicy” Clampit – This is the guy who accidentally killed his baby son when he threw a soup bowl at the child’s mother while she was carrying the baby in her arms. I can almost wrap my head around the idea of parents intentionally harming or killing their kids. That’s evil. I get it that evil exists and manifests in horrible ways in this world. But for a parent to kill his child accidentally because he had a fit of rage and was just too stupid to control himself? That takes the cake for me. It is the height of negligence and fucktardary. If Juicy would have just taken a deep breath and counted to 10 he might not have tossed that soup bowl at his missus … and their baby boy might still be alive.

Adam Theall – This is the human excrement who executed his 3-month-old baby boy with a shotgun in front of police. I have a vivid imagination, and in one of my previous lives as a police reporter I have SEEN what a shotgun blast does to an adult body. I can envision what it must have done to a tiny, defenseless baby. Not only did this bastard murder an innocent baby, he did it in a horrific way intended to have the most impact on the witnesses. My heart breaks for the child’s mother, and for the cops who had to witness the murder. And I admire the incredible self-restraint it must have taken for them to not simply put a bullet in his head. No jury in the world would have convicted them if they had done exactly that.

Lyndsey Fiddler – Bitch put her 10-day-old baby in the washing machine and turned it on. I don’t care how fucked up you are on drugs or booze, shouldn’t there be SOME moment of moral awareness when you realize you don’t do that with a baby? And her utter lack of remorse is what bothers me most. Instead of being devastated at the loss of her child, this bitch tried to cover up the murder … by blaming her OWN mother.

Steven Nicholson – This one is my top pick. This is the shitbag who scalded and drowned not one, but TWO, of his babies to death in the same tub on the same night. First off, I don’t care HOW morally loose our society has become, having two babies with two separate women just months apart makes you nothing more than a penis with legs. Whether these babies’ deaths were accidental or intentional, Nicholson gets my vote for baddest breeder of the year. If it was an accident, why the fuck wasn’t he watching them? If it was intentional, why the fuck is he still breathing the same air as the real humans?

Next up is Jhilhan…

Jewel Marie Hendricks was the mother who decided that twins was just too much for her to deal with so she came to the conclusion that smothering her “least favourite” was the best course of action.

I think the words “least favourite” haunted my mind for weeks after first reading this article by Angel. I remember her saying : “…And she loved Daniel more than she loved Robert.” The concept still utterly floors me. The idea that should could take a two month old infant, break his clavicle and then wrap it in a blanket and shove it between her and the couch, knowing full well the baby would suffocate. Not only that, but then fall asleep for two and a half hours knowing that your baby is dying next to you. How does one do that? The very idea just rips my heart out.

I cannot find anything written about her husband and how he reacted. He was asleep in the next room when this monster smothered his baby boy. This frustrates me. This woman was married. Her husband apparently attempted CPR and called 911 immediately when he his wife alerted him to the fact one of the babies wasn’t breathing.

I have always felt that parenting was meant to be a two person job. I have seen single parents do a swell job on their own, don’t get me wrong, but ideally, having help and family support of some kind, makes a world of difference. My husband and I took turns with our little guy. If one of us was getting frustrated, the other would step in ASAP, no bickering, no questions asked…it was all about the little guy and our love for each other. The multiple levels of betrayal this woman has stooped to is mind boggling. Her betrayal of the child she killed. Her betrayal of the child that lives…that little boy gets to spend the rest of his life knowing HE was the “favourite” and the brother he will never get to meet, died for it. She also betrayed her husband.

If I may quote Dr. Seuss…””A person’s a person, no matter how small.” I want that to be repeated over and over at that bitch’s trial in February of 2011. She smothered him to obtain quiet, a “Better life.” Murder. This was an educated woman who just threw away a gift because it was inconvenient. She was able to look at a pair of two month old babies that she carried and decide which one lives and which one dies AND carry out the execution herself. Monster. Plain and simple.

In an update, it claims the father gave up custodial rights as well and the little boy has been adopted. I’m curious as to why the father gave up his rights? I am pleased to know perhaps the surviving child may have chance with parents who will not think him a burden and hopefully will never pick a favourite over him someday.

Now from Deena…

Dominick Calhoun was tortured for 4 long days by his mother’s live in boyfriend Brandon Hayes. He died after being removed from life support on April 12, 2010.

The particular story angers me for many reason bust mostly because, Corrine Baker, NEVER loved her son ENOUGH. She smoked crack while pregnant with him, causing him to be born with some developmental issues, she didn’t love him enough to stop the drugs for his little life.

Dominick peed his pants while sitting on the couch, at the apartment he shared with his mother, brother and Brandon Hayes. Brandon was enraged and so began the torture that ended his life; once again his mother didn’t love him enough to take him out of that house.

She has offered several excuses, Brandon beat her and held her hostage, but she left during the 4 days to seek medical treatment for herself, once again not loving her son enough to take him with her or to tell her parents who took her to the doctor about what he was enduring inside the apartment. Instead she phoned her boyfriend while out and conversed with him and even pledged her love, all the while her youngest son was slowly dying.

Had her sister not stopped by to purchase drugs from Brandon, who knows what may have come of Dominick’s body, because she is the one who notified his paternal grandfather, who brought the police and rescued the lil’ guy but it was too late. His small body had succumbed to the injuries, which included, burns, bruising; brain swelling and he even had his eyes gouged. All of this because he had accident, an accident mostly due to his developmental issues that were no fault of his, but his mother’s inability to clean up her act while carrying him.

Brandon referred to Dominick as a “crack baby that deserved to die” and die he did and both of these monsters make me sick! As much as I despise Brandon, I think I despise Corrine all the more for her failure to protect her child, she had failed him so much before, why couldn’t she this one time put him first? Why couldn’t she take him away or give him to his father who loved him or even one of the grandparents who loved him as well. She has stated she loved her son and tried to protect him but Brandon would beat her as well… I don’t care what he did to me, but I would die myself before I let my child endure what Dominick did. I have never been able to get the images of his last days out of my mind, as a mother I cannot bear to think about it.

A lot has been done here in Michigan to remember Dominick and most of it has been spear headed by Dominick’s paternal grandfather, who was brave enough to step in and try to save his life and did not let him die in vain. Because of Dominick this year needy children in state custody were given shoes, all donated by members of the Justice for Dominick group. I am proud to say I am a member of that very group. I lit a candle for him on his birthday and participated in the Facebook birthday party in his honor. He may have been young, when he was murdered but his light will shine for years to come and many will remember those big blue eyes forever.

Now from Nicole…

As I look back on 2010 I can think of a few great moments and a few very sad moments for me. One of my highlights was finding this site and soon becoming part of the clan!

I wish to touch base and bring up two sad stories that rocked my world this year.

First – I found this site because of Ethan Stacy. This little boy looked like the sweetest little creature. I can’t even imagine to horror he went through: begging his father not to send him to his mother’s, only once there being beaten, tortured and killed all while his mother got married and took pics on her cell phone and all within 9 days! – The horror of what they did to his sweet face to try and detour finding his identity – It gives me chills thinking about it and gives me nightmares. I have the biggest lump in my throat just giving you highlights. This story upsets me so much I can’t even go on.

Reading April’s original post and how passionate she told the story of what happened to this beautiful, wonderful and precious little boy not only read exactly the way I felt about the situation, but made me horribly aware and kept me freakishly attracted to this site!

Second – I hope and pray to the powers that be that Quindell Sherman dies. This horrible monster is the exact reason why there are people out there that believe in vigilante justice. I so wish I was present at the time he was arrested just so I could be the one to put a bullet in head and walk away knowing I did this world some good.

The things he did to his 3-month-old baby make me want to vomit. He threw him up the air, dragged him around the street, and slammed him to the ground and more. They found him hiding in a dumpster standing on top of the baby – I can only hope he was dead by then. All of this in broad daylight in front family and neighbors.

There are many others that have affected my daily thoughts and actions. These two stories in particular stood out and I will certainly never forget them. I have my calendar noted and will be following the trials for The Sloops and also for Casey Anthony – both I believe will be the biggest of 2011.

I wish everyone on this site, writers, readers, regular posters, onlookers and anyone who stumbles upon this site like I did a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Fan favorite and the driving force behind this site, April, offers up this poem that she posted in the comments about Stephanie Sloop

My daddy loved me very much
He kept me safe and warm
You took me from my nice, safe home
And delivered me to harm

Why’d you do it mommy
I was your little boy
Nate picked me up and shook me, mom
And threw me like a toy

He punched me and kicked me
Until I was black and blue
You didn’t even leave him, mom
When he filled my mouth with pooh

You loved him more than you loved me
I see that now, it’s nice
But just for you, you stupid cunt
I paid the highest price

I hope you can sleep at night
Though haunted by my cries
I’m in a safe warm place again
Up in Heaven’s blue skies

Sleep well, mommy, in your cold, dark cell
And dream of me tonight
When Bertha climes into your bunk
She’s gonna DO you right

I hear they like pretty blonds in jail
Your gonna fit in well
And when they get through with your skanky ass
You’ll see them again… someday…. In Hell

Fuck you Stephanie Sloop – I hope you fucking rot!

♥ April, the mean girl

I hate Stephanie Sloop. She is another prime example of a selfish whore who’s vaginal needs were inconvenienced by an innocent child. One she could have left in the custody of a very loving biological father.

And last and most certainly least it’s yours truly, Trench Reynolds…

For 2010 there’s only one story that sticks out in my mind as the worst of 2010. As IHK2 mentioned above it happened kind of local to us which is only one factor in why I thought it was the worst. Another factor is that the story is so unbelievable you’d think it was from a really bad episode of CSI Miami. Between the fact that Adam Baker would drag his daughter from all the way around the world to be with what has been deemed the Sheen Cow or Elisa Baker’s propensity for grifting, in my opinion, it still seems like a poorly written story from a trashy detective magazine.

What makes it even worse is that poor Zahra Baker was a sweet child, who seemed to not have a harsh word towards anybody, was also disabled having lost her leg to cancer and had to wear hearing aids in both ears. Not to mention what we still don’t know. We don’t know how she died. We don’t know who killed her yet. We don’t know why she was killed. I think those unknowns make it just as bad as the fact that her body was brutally dismembered and just thrown away like a broken appliance that no longer serves a purpose.

Then throw on top that no one has been charged yet for Zahra Baker‘s death. A brutal murder to one so young and so helpless cries out for justice. I’m not talking about vigilante justice either. I’m talking about the kind of justice where there’s no doubt what so ever that the correct person or people have been tried, convicted and sentenced.

On a personal note as a lot of you know 2010 was a very tough year for me and I want to thank each and every one of you who helped me out. From my fellow bloggers to the ones who made donations to the readers who have commented or e-mailed their feedback.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you. And here’s wishing that we didn’t have to write any stories in 2011.

Fan mail for once

Hey everyone. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. With the new job taking up most of my time and not being able to blog from there I’ve been mostly uninspired. However we did get a nice e-mail from a guy named Mike. This really isn’t for me as it is for the other writers of (P)BB.

I love your style.

I’m a History Major headed for law school, with a history of extreme physical and mental abuse as a child.

I am blessed with two beautiful children of my own and have broken that cycle of violence.

I felt compelled to tell you that I love your RAW, politically “incorrect” descriptions of these low life pieces of human fucking trash.

It’s inspiring and entertaining and helps to refuel my hatred for these oxygen wasters.

I hope to finish my Law degree and work exclusively finding new and fitting punitive measures for this splinter cell of criminals that, in my opinion, gets off too easy for their crimes.

Fight the good fight. and thank you.

Thank you Mike and best of luck on your career. With writing like that you could write for BB. It would be nice to have another male perspective around here.

But it’s not just my style. Oh I do have my funny names for suspects and made up terms but the other writers who have worked with me since I took over the site are the real stars of this site. People like Angel, April and IHK2 are the real reason this site continues.

In the early days of blogging it was all about raw pure emotion before the most popular blogs got corporate. I’d like to think that the three of them and the others who have worked with us have carried that blogging tradition on. While I think the writers here are more than talented they’re also human and allow their passion to make this blog even better. I strive to be like them.

What Bad Breeders is about

This site is called Bad Breeders. It used to be called Parents Behaving Badly. What this site is about is parents, whether it be biological, adopted, foster or legal guardians, that abuse the children in their care.

Only after a year did I relent to allow stories where boyfriends or girlfriends had abused their significant other’s children.

What it is not is a missing/abducted child blog unless the child has been abducted by a parent.

I’m not saying I don’t care about missing or abducted children, of course I do. However there are plenty of blogs and websites that carry stories about missing and abducted children.

Where the unused stories go

I made a decision and it’s not going to be a popular one.

A while ago I asked where would you like to see the stories that don’t make it to BB go. The answers were split between Facebook and a message board.

Well I’ve made my decision finally and I’ve decided that they will be posted on the Facebook page.

My reasons for this are many. I absolutely detest message boards. Message boards end up in too much drama and headaches and I don’t have the time to deal with that. I wouldn’t ask anyone else to do that task for me either. It’s bad enough that I ask my writers to post stories on the main site.

Plus the Facebook page already has close to 1200 members.

Trench has spoken.

Big changes at PBB…or is it?

So as you know this site used to be at parentsbehavingbadly.com.

When I left b5media I got to take the blog with me but the domain was caught up in red tape. I finally got the domain into my grubby little paws. The thing is it turns out it’s easier for me to rename the site than it is to change the URL. So going forward Parents Behaving Badly is now going to be Bad Breeders. In essence PBB is losing the P.

The second, and I think the more significant, change is that I will be changing from the native WordPress commenting system to the Disqus commenting service. You can see it in action at my other site here.

Now you don’t have to sign up for a Disqus account. You can still leave comments as you have before. If you do sign up for a Disqus account don’t be freaked if your preferred user name is taken. You can have your displayed name be anything you want. You can even sign into the comments using Twitter or Facebook or several other services.

The reason I’m changing comments is because WordPress now sees my very own comments as spam. The second is it will be easier to find a comment because the link in the e-mail will take you directly to the comment and not just the page where you have to search for the comment in order to reply to it.

The important part of the site, the content, will remain the same. I’ll be as offensive as ever to pit bull owners, trailer dwellers, the state of West Virgina and guys with the middle names of Lee, Roy and Wayne. April will be as foul mouthed as ever. And hopefully I can count on my faithful readers to be as active as ever.

BadBreeders.net returns

I’m sorry for my most recent hiatus. I had some personal things I had to take care of all of a sudden. But never mind that. Hopefully I’m back for a while and I’ve got you all a present.

In the past I’ve said that I can’t post every story that I get here at PBB or I would never be able to do anything else. And I’ve felt bad for the people who took the time to send in stories that didn’t make it to PBB. Now I have sort of a solution to that. I’ve resurrected BadBreeders.net to be a companion site to PBB. IT will have just the links to articles that people have sent in that weren’t posted to PBB.

Again, it is not replacing PBB but acting as a companion site.


Back in Business

Just when you thought you were safe from bad parenting PBB makes it’s triumphant return.

Hi, I’m internet’s Trench Reynolds. Some of you may know me from my other b5 blog MyCrimeSpace. Some of you may know me from my own bad parenting blog Bad Breeders. Now you all know me as the new blogger behind Parents Behaving Badly.

I’ve been a huge fan of PBB since even before its b5 days. As a matter of fact if it wasn’t for b5 picking up PBB I would not be a b5 blogger myself. When PBB’s original blogger announced that PBB was picked up by b5 I decided to make the step myself and applied to b5 who then picked up MyCrimeSpace. So I kind of owe my blogging career to PBB.

So I’m sure you’re wondering what will be different here now that I’m at the helm. First off even though the site title contains the word ‘Parents’ I will rarely refer to them as such because usually they don’t deserve to be called that. So I will use the term I used liberally at Bad Breeders and will be referring to them as Breeders. You don’t have to be a biological parent to be a Breeder either. There are such things as Step-Breeders and Foster-Breeders in the Trench Reynolds lexicon.

Secondly there will be slim to no coverage of the Casey Anthony story. I did start to cover it at Bad Breeders but when it entered the realm of Nancy Grace and psychics it became not worth my time. I pride myself on covering cases that aren’t necessarily covered by the national media.

So sit back and be enthralled and appalled as I bring you an unfortunately never ending parade of parental failures.
