Florida methtards leave their kids in the woods

Michael and Sarah Butcher

Florida Parents Arrested After Abandoning Three Kids in the Woods:

30-year-olds Michael and Sarah Butcher were found by police in Punta Gorda, Florida, after parking in a private RV lot. Why were they parking there? Well, police say they found meth along with a needle and spoon in the glove box so I’m going to guess that they were looking to smoke meth. After the arrest the pair claimed to be brother and sister.

So this is BB so there has to be kids involved right? So were the kids in the truck while Uncle Daddy and Aunt Mommy smoked meth? Don’t be ridiculous. Only real lowlifes do that. In this case the Butchers allegedly abandoned their kids, ages 10, 8, and 6, in the woods and drove off so they could smoke meth. They supposedly did it like the assholes who dump their dogs. They took them out to the woods, told them go play, then hauled ass out of there. It wasn’t until police received a call about wandering hungry kids that anything was done about them. I guess the Butcher ‘siblings’ didn’t think to tell police to help their kids. Of course they didn’t. That would only get them in more trouble, which there in now, so I guess they’re plan really didn’t work that well.

If I had Walter White-like chemistry skills I’d make a super-meth that would make the tweakers’ heads literally explode. Quicker than rehab and no strain on the taxpayers.

Mum Gemma Gaye Killeen charged with murder after toddler drowns:

Gemma Gaye Killeen claims son’s murder was a bid for attention gone wrong:

Gemma Killeen: mother to murderer:

Struggle ends in son’s death:

As I scroll through the news articles, memorial pages, tributes, other sad and unfortunate stories. The one thing that is redundantly clear is that losing a child in any manner is tragic heart wrenching, soul crushing event. One never truly can or wants to understand how profoundly devastating it is to lose a child. Whether it’s your own, your nephew or niece, or many friends children that we count as part of our own “mob” to use Australian slang. Each one of us is precious and valued, our children, our fire, our passion and what truly makes our life’s worth experiencing. For all the horrible things in life, children seem to balance out the Universes scales.

As parents, particularly mothers it becomes our responsibility from the moment we become aware of a pregnancy, loving the life growing inside your body, throughout out our various journeys we all make sacrifices, decisions for our own life’s that affect our children’s. We make decisions directly affecting our children, from their haircuts, to their clothing, to which school they attend. Most parents approach these important decisions with what’s in their child’s best interest at heart. We all have differing opinions on raising children, there are many-a-mummy blog, where you can find varying types of parenting styles. We all have different views on what we find acceptable for our children; we are entitled to raise our children with within these variations of what society deems appropriate. There are some decision’s you will make as a parent some people will not agree with, due to their own personal beliefs or standards, or because the deemed by the majority of society you have made an error in judgment; your decision, for whatever reason is of no benefit to your child, in fact that decision causes detriment. Sometimes these errors in judgment can be minor or sometimes they can be horrendous.

On the 25th of November 2011, Gemma Killeen spent the early part of the day sunbathing at her mother’s home; she also shopped and attended a manicure appointment. At around 5pm that evening she sent texts messages to Eddie Wetere, the father of their son Te Reringa Keyden Ashley Wetere. These texts messages, asking Mr. Wetere when he would be home from work, went unanswered. There are reports the couple had argued the night before after Miss Killeen’s late arrival home from a night out. Upon receiving no response from her on-again-off again lover and the father of her 22 month-old-son Te Reringa, Killeen drove her car and her son to Hillary’s Boat Harbour in Western Australia.

CCTV footage shown in court, has Killeen entering the car park and at approximately 5:30pm. A text message sent to Mr. Wetere went unanswered, Gemma Killeen removed Te Reringa from his car seat and walked with him to the water’s edge where she left him. She returned to her car and drove to the car park at the opposite end of the harbour.

She began making calls to relatives, telling them Te Reringa had been taken or lost. She continued to call and text message Mr. Wetere saying it was urgent. She claimed someone had taken Te Reringa from his pram, while she filled a bottle or got something from the car.

The search began for Te Reringa, at around 6:25pm a couple spotted what they thought was a doll in the water. After the man retrieved Te Reringa from the water he started CPR. The ambulance arrived and transported Te Reringa to hospital where he received his angel wings. 22 months old, and one month short of Christmas Day, it would have been the first he was old enough to experience.


Gemma has stated that she never intended to kill her son by placing him on the rocks at Hillary’s; that she was seeking attention from her lover and Te Reringas’ father by putting their precious child on those rocks, with nowhere else to go, but into water, by walking back to her car, starting it up, driving away. Take a look at those rocks in that photo, and the water, can you picture a 2-year-old boy abandoned?


I don’t know why the fuck she thought this decision was appropriate or in the best interests of her child or why she would consider using her child in a ploy like this to gain attention from Mr. Wetere. Clearly he’d had enough of her shit and wasn’t playing the text message games anymore. Unfortunately for him, and the rest of Te Reringas’ family, Gemma’s attention seeking, narcissistic tendencies and selfish wants, exceeded her need or desire to be a mother, or a decent human being.

And in all those moments she began telling lies, for more attention I can only assume, she wasted vital moments she could have used to change the outcome, to save her child’s life, realize her stupidity and foolish actions before it cost Te Reringa his life.

Instead of being so self-absorbed and demanding attention from a man who clearly couldn’t or didn’t want to answer you why not get excited for Christmas and the second birthday Te Reringa and his family were looking forward to, or getting him home and sorting dinner?

Gemma Killeen murdered her son, she set him upon steep rocks and left him alone to drown in Hillary’s Boat Harbour.

Gemma Gaye Killeen, plead guilty in the murder of Te Reringa Wetere and is serving 13 years to life in prison.

Rest Peacefully Little Man

Moronic Melissa left her kids home alone

Mom who left kids alone faces endangerment charges


At least she got her makeup did for the mugshot!

That purty party princess up there is Melissa Melba George (40) of East Lansdowne, Delaware County, Philadelphia. She’s being charged with two counts of child endangerment after she left her two kids home alone for a few days.

The MIA moron disappeared for several days, while her two kids aged 9 and 11 were left to fend for themselves. Her own children reported her missing and a missing person bulletin was issued in the local paper. Shortly after the article was published, the cops started getting reports of sightings of Miss Melissa in the area and she shortly returned voluntarily. Why, were people asking her about her children?

Those poor kids! Imagine coming home to find that your mum isn’t back from work or isn’t in the house full-stop. No note, no phone call, no nothing. Then having to fend for yourselves for a few days, all the while worrying where your mum is. At least they hadn’t starved, there appeared to be food in the house. I still get anxious if my mum doesn’t come back from somewhere at the time she said she’d be back. All sorts of thoughts run through my head about accidents and stuff. I couldn’t imagine what would be going on with these two poor kids. And especially because she didn’t have a reason for her abrupt departure. I reckon she’d had enough of her two kids and just wanted to escape for a few days.

The two kids are now in the custody of Delaware County Children and Youth Services.


Dallas woman accused of selling newborn online

Britany Hill. I guess I can see why she needed the money. She must have been a little short.

Police: Mother put child for sale on Craigslist:

Mom accused of trying to sell infant online claims it was an adoption:

Dallas police documents outline child abandonment case:

Texas mom denies trying to sell baby through Internet classified ad :

26-year-old Brittany Hill of Dallas, Texas was arrested recently for allegedly trying to sell her 4-month-old son online. I’ve seen reports that say it was either on craigslist or PennySaverUSA, both online classifieds sites. Luckily Hill was not selling the baby for sex which we have seen on this site too often lately.

Hill claims that she placed the ad for money needed for a lawyer in order to put the baby up for adoption. However a person who saw the ad and was interested in adopting the baby reported to police that they got cold feet when they found out that no lawyer would be involved. I’ve seen reports stating that the baby was being sold anywhere from $4000 to $6500.

But wait, there’s more. Hill is also facing child endangerment charges for allegedly leaving her son alone in their apartment. The apartment manager was doing welfare checks on tenants who were behind on his rent and found the baby on the floor unattended. Luckily the baby was unharmed. Hill allegedly said that she was having an anxiety attack and ‘needed a breather’ while she left her son alone for an hour while she walked to a nearby school. That’s peculiar to say the least.

In an interview with local media Hill denies trying to sell her son and says she was just trying to find a good home for him.

“I know that’s illegal,” she said Monday, speaking from jail. “I’m not stupid – that’s called, like, black-market something. I’ve read about it, I know.”

“Look deeper into it instead of just being like, ‘OK, that’s what it is. She’s trying to sell her child,'” Hill added. “Screw that, you know. It’s not like that.”


Hill also has other children that are no longer in her custody. One was adopted by another family in 2009 and other have been adopted by her parents.

Apparently Hill just can’t stop from getting pregnant….

“I will never have any more children,” she said. “If I could have had a hysterectomy, I would have done it a long time ago.”

Where’s the federal program for that idea if someone is willing to have it done?

Anyway I’m not really here to bash Hill too much. I don’t think she acted maliciously here. Irresponsible yes but not malicious. She was able to have her other children successfully and legally adopted previously so as of right now I can’t see why her intentions would be otherwise in this case.

The main reason I really wanted to post this story is to highlight the idea that there should be better laws and programs in place to make adoption easier not only for adoptive parents but also those who are giving up children for adoption. In this day and age when a baby’s life has become so disposable how about a little more education and encouragement for adoptions?

Runaway Mommy



Runaway Mommy

Houston woman accused of abandoning baby

Five-month-old left in parking lot

It’s September 18th in Houston,TX and Chanta Johnson (30) has decided that two children in too much of a burden and she needs to rid herself of one of them.  So she does.  She pulls her car into a parking lot and has her 7-year-old son unload his 5-month-old sister Lyrik Tolliver and promptly drives away.

A witness to the baby dumping picked up the baby and located Runaway Mommy at some nearby basketball courts and confronted her.  To which she replied, “I don’t care what happens to the baby.”  Ummm… excuse me bitch!  How this witness didn’t  punch her squarely in the freakin mouth right then is beyond me, but that’s just me.  The witness took the baby home and called police.

When the baby began to cry for milk and a diaper change, the witness and a friend tried once again to approach Runaway Mommy and once again she said she didn’t care and to call CPS on her.

Runaway Mommy told investigators she had no intentions of retrieving the baby.  Her son also spoke to investigators and told them, his mother made him leave the baby in the parking lot and told him “I don’t want the baby anymore.”

Both children have been placed in foster care while CPS searches for relatives willing and qualified to care for them.

Runaway Mommy has been charged with child abandonment and is being held on $20,000 bond.

Thank you to the witness and her friend who cared enough to get involved, who knows what would have happened to baby Lyrik, if not for them.  

Breeder leaves child behind after fleeing from store security

LaQuinta Latrice Kemp

HPD: Shoplifting mom abandons 1-year-old in Macy’s to flee police:

Police in Houston, Texas arrested LaQuinta Latrice Kemp after she fled a Macy’s after allegedly being caught shoplifting. While making her escape police say that she hit a store employee and left a stroller behind that contained her 1-year-old son. Did I mention that this took place on Christmas Eve. I guess she should have gotten her Christmas shoplifting done early but I’m guessing she wasn’t looking for presents for others. At least she’s gone upscale from most of the shoplifting stories we get.

And while I’m at it what the hell kind of name is LaQuinta? Does she have siblings named Red Roof and Motel 6? Maybe she was named after where she was conceived.

Not surprisingly she has a previous record for burglary. She can now add a charge of child abandonment to her resume.

Thanks to Laura for the tip.

Angelic Gibson’s home ain’t so heavenly

Dookie Dwelling Diva


Children left home alone in feces-filled home  

Angelic Gibson, 32, is charged with child abandonment.  

Authorities were called to her home when her 4 kids, aged 7,6, 4 and 3 years old went to a neighbors home to ask for food. This neighbor gave them all bananas and sandwiches and then walked them home.  

Once they got home, the neighbor entered and realized these kids were left alone.  

Deputies did a search of the place and found no running water, no food human feces and urine and generally filthy.  

CPS was called and they all stayed with the children waiting for Gibson to return home, after 2 hours they called her.  

Gibson admitted to leaving the kids at home, but said she’d only gone to the store.   

I looked up some more info on this story and got some really interesting updates!   

Turns out now that Gibson wasn’t arrested for three weeks because authorities couldn’t find her. Also, the home where all kids lived has now burned down – how convenient!  

Here’s another good part…  

The older 3 kids, ages 7, 6 and 4 are her kids – she told a relative that the youngest child, aged 3 is not her child. That relative then gave the toddler back to her and told her to get the child back to her parents where she belongs. CPS has now gained custody of that baby and now has her placed with a foster family.  

Where did this little girl come from? Did she find her at a Coffee Bean? Steal her? WTF?   

The other children have been placed with relatives.   

Arson investigators will not say if Gibson is a suspect in the fire, but they are not ruling anyone out. Luckily, the officers took pictures of the home before it was burnt to a crisp, so there is evidence still intact.  

 Gibson faces two felony charges of abandoning a child. Her bail has been set at $4,000. If convicted, she could be sent to prison for up to two years.  

 Thanks go to Laura for sending the tip.

Breeder leaves kid home for 5 hours while ‘at the doctor’

Seriously. What's up with the eyebrows?

Florida Mother Arrested After 4-Year-Old Son, Left Home Alone, Calls 911:

Boy, 4, left home alone:

Sharpie McEyebrows over there is 25-year-old Jocelyn Villot of Deltona, Florida. Unlike West Virginia I do have an actual grudge against the state of Florida but that’s neither here no there. Villot was arrested after allegedly leaving her 4-year-old son home alone for 5 hours.

Villot told her son that she was going to the doctor and to pick up beer. After a while the 4-year-old called 911 looking for his mom. Police say that Villot was at a local pharmacy trying to fill a prescription that had no signature on it.

Trench has a theory on this. It sounds like to me that she went shopping from pharmacy to pharmacy trying to see if they would fill the unsigned script. No word on what it was for but Trench’s guess is that it contained the term oxy in it and I don’t mean OxyClean even though it looks like she could use some of that too.

Breeder robs store with daughter in tow

Sheriff: Woman robbed gas station with 7-year-old in tow:

45-year-old Ethel Mae Nelson is accused of robbing a convenience store in Newberry, South Carolina at knifepoint. Witnesses say that she had her 7-year-old daughter with her. The girl was told to wait outside while the robbery was being committed.

However when the police were processing the scene one of the officers recognized the description of the girl as someone who was passing by in a taxi cab. When the cab was pulled over Nelson is said to have fled on foot leaving her daughter behind. After throwing the cash in the air Nelson broke her leg during the brief foot chase. Wouldn’t that be a brief hop chase or a brief limp chase?

Anyway the girl is now in the custody of DSS and the girl’s father says that Nelson is getting what she deserves.

AZ Breeder punched her son so she could be a stripper

Arizona Mom Arrested After Telling Cops She Was Leaving Kids to Be a Stripper:

Phantom Eyebrows over there is 29-year-old Christina Muniz of SURPRISE, Arizona. Her surprise came when her 11-year-old son called the cops because she was planning on leaving the 11-year-old and his 6-year-old brother behind. Not as in she was going to leave them with a relative. She was allegedly just going to leave them behind.

She said that she didn’t want to see her kids ever again. All to pursue her dream of becoming a stripper and making money.

Let’s pause for a moment right there.

It’s no secret that I used to be a gentleman’s club aficionado. I’ve been to many a strip club up and down the East Coast. I’ve been to the finer clubs that serve prime rib and I’ve been to the dives where you couldn’t pay me to eat a bag of chips there. So believe me when I say that even in the most dankly lit hole in the wall with main stage there would not be a whole lot of money in this chick’s future.

Anyway after police arrived and set up temporary custody with the father the 11-year-old went to hug his mother good bye. Instead of getting a hug back Muniz allegedly made a fist and punched the boy in the stomach. That’s when police decided to take her in.

In court she said this was all a misunderstanding. Yeah, right. 11-year-olds have good imaginations but I doubt that they could concoct a story like this.

Thanks to Kerry and Jacquie for the tip.
