Everybody Fails…Second verse, same as the first

Body of boy who’d been dead for days found in home
Pennsylvania mom: I didn’t know son had died until the smell set in
Homicide charges for Pennsylvania parents of son found decomposing in home
Court records detail changing stories provided by Jarrod Tutko Jr.’s mother

Oh, God… That’s a prayer, a plea, and the sound my heart makes when I think of this poor child, who died alone, hungry, and probably terrified. Sorry, friends, but I am not going to post any pictures of the perpetrators in this sad tale, because I cannot stand to look at their faces myself. There are plenty of pics in the linked stories, and if that’s not enough for you, just Google Tutko, and you will be amply rewarded with a plethora of pictures of the two animals who mercilessly killed one child, and almost killed another. I usually try to lighten up these stories in order to make them easier to read, but I can’t do that this time. My heart is too broken. Forgive me, but I just can’t think of any glib remarks that would make this situation easier to bear.

I started to write this a few weeks ago, when the story first hit the news, but decided to hold off because (child abuse) charges had not been made yet, and I was desperately hoping that there was a reasonable explanation for the horrors brought forth in the news concerning this case. I knew it was unlikely, but still, I hoped. Alas, I was sadly disappointed.

Little Jarrod Tutko, Jr. was found in his “bedroom”(actually, some articles say he was found in a bathroom), dead, several days after he died. His mother claimed that she did not realize he was dead until the smell of decomposition set in. Apparently, there were six children living in the home, at least two of whom were disabled, and all of whom were living in filth and misery. I am going to attempt to combine the linked articles into some sort of cohesive timeline, but please forgive me if I fail – I am still crying about the newest details that have emerged.

Jarrod’s body was found on the bathroom floor on August 1, 2014. The authorities have said that he was dead for several days before his body was recovered. The mother claimed (at the time) not to have seen her son in “years”. More on that later. The sperm donor, Jarrod Tutko, Sr., was supposedly the “sole caretaker” of his 9-year-old son, and the egg donor, Kimberly Tutko, was responsible for another child of theirs, a 10-year-old girl. She claimed that all of her time was spent caring for the girl, and she never saw her son, because she didn’t want to risk exposing the other children to any germs Jarrod Jr might have had, or some such BS. The stories vary, depending on which article you read. The risk of contamination was a valid concern, it seems, because little Jarrod’s room was covered in feces, swarming with flies, and had only a feces covered blanket and stuffed animal, and a TV in it. The TV was tuned to the Disney channel. I think I need to puke again. WHO, among the sane and sensible, thinks it is OK to treat a child this way?

Jarrod Jr. had a genetic condition called Fragile X Syndrome. This is a condition that can cause behavioral issues in children, and has autistic-like symptoms. It is also frequently accompanied by some degree of mental retardation. This child likely spent his short life confused and lonely, and wondering why he was treated like an animal. At this point, however, I find myself hoping that his mental impairment was so bad that he didn’t understand the abuse – and couldn’t suffer from the emotional trauma. I know, I’m deluding myself.

When Jarrod Jr. was found, he weighed only seventeen pounds. Let that sink in for a minute…a nine-year-old who weighs only seventeen pounds. Just for comparison, the average weight for a newborn is six pounds. A baby will typically triple its birth weight in the first year. That would be 18 pounds. This precious 9-year-old boy died weighing less than the average 1-year-old. In a room covered in human waste. With no one who would love him, or take care of him. I despise those people. I really do.

In addition to Jarrod Jr., there was a 10 year old girl who was “near death” when the authorities came in for the investigation. All five of the remaining children have been removed from the birth organisms, and both of the abusers are currently residents of the Grey bar motel. I hope they rot there.

As I mentioned earlier, when the story first broke, the FBO claimed not to have seen her son in years, and claimed not to know how deplorable his living conditions were. First, how can any mother live in the same house with a child and simply NOT see him for years? I couldn’t do it. Even when my children are visiting relatives during the summer, I make sure I see them at least once a week. When they go to camp, I make it a point to go and have a meal with them a couple of times a week. I just can’t stand to NOT see them. And this slag lived in the same house with her boy and NEVER saw him? LIAR, LIAR! (I’d like to set her hair on fire!) Well, it turns out, that was a lie she concocted to try to keep herself out of trouble. According to the latest reports, she was upstairs and visiting with her son just a few short weeks before his death. She said he was crying on the bathroom floor “because he didn’t like the sound of running water.” There goes my wish that he was unaware of his surroundings. He was crying on the bathroom floor. My soul weeps for this child.

I know this story is running long, and I apologize, but I simply couldn’t think what to include, and what to omit. There is so much wrong with this situation. The local child protective services were aware of this family, yet the children were still neglected, one to the point of death, and another almost dead. The other four children were apparently living on the lower floor of the home, and in somewhat better circumstances, although as I understand it the entire house was in need of some serious cleaning. I could not find the ages of the other four children specifically mentioned, but one article did say they ranged from 3 to 14 years old. I’d like to know HOW, if the two parents each had a full time job taking care of severely disabled kids, HOW in the name of Satan’s undershorts did they FIND TIME TO MAKE MORE BABIES? They should have spent that time feeding the kids they already had.

The Slunt is has been charged with criminal homicide and endangering the welfare of children, and the walking penis is charged with the same thing, plus concealing the death of a child and abuse of a corpse. They are both being held without bail. At least the judge in this case is doing something right. I hope they are sentenced to the rest of their natural lives in a septic tank located in a high traffic area, with no food. I’m not sure if I want them to starve to death first or die of the inevitable fumes from the feces flushed into their prison. I can’t write any more right now – perhaps I’ll come back later to update the story. Maybe not.

Sorry, Trench. I know this one sucks, but I just couldn’t get my head straight. If you want to take it down, or fix it, I’ll understand completely.

“I have five uncontrollable kids…”

Police: Iowa man locked 5 kids in bedroom all day
UPDATE: Police say Westgate child abuser used secret door

I wasn’t sure I would be able to post another story today. After having posted the one about little Peyton earlier, my eyes are still red from weeping about that poor child. However, I decided that the sheer volume of asininity involved in this situation warranted immediate attention.
Sooooo…..this is a two-fer….kinda. Same people involved, same children, but different charges on different days – but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me begin at the beginning.


The two outstanding individuals who grace the page just above are crack snacker Joshua Steinbronn, 28, and his main snatch (or is that snack? Oh well, apply the descriptor any way you like), Jonya Smith, 29. It seems that these two stellar parents (and I use that term loosely) thought it would be more fun to have pets than kids, so they decided to keep all five kids locked in a single room for hours (sometimes a full day), with no food, water, or access to a bathroom. Oh, wait, I have to add “allegedly” here. The kids were “allegedly” locked up like animals. According to the children themselves. But who’s keeping score, right?

Let’s back up a little more. This story has me so wound up that I can’t decide which order to share the information. Jonya is the mother of five children between the ages of 3 and 9, whose names are not available – presumably to protect their identities since they are all minors. Let that sink in for a minute. Five children over a seven year period. Not unheard of, but dayum, she was a busy little thing, wasn’t she? Joshua is NOT the babydaddy. For any of them. Neither of the linked articles mention the father(s?) of the children, so I have to wonder if she knows herself. But, that’s just speculation on my part.

Anyway, to get back to the story. On Friday, Sept. 19, 2014, deputies responded to a ‘domestic disturbance’ at a Westgate, Iowa home. The article doesn’t say what kind of home, but I am leaning toward the “mobile” type – you’ll understand why a little further along. Upon arrival, LE noticed ‘several’ children yelling out of a window, and crying. They told officers that they had been locked in the bedroom by their birth organism’s current penis du jour. Ho hum. This one is already sounding familiar, huh? ‘Not-the-daddy’ abusing plaything’s kids. The children went on to describe multiple incidents of confinement, and added that they were given no food, water or access to a bathroom for up to 24 hours. They were given cups to pee in, and sometimes had to use the floor as a toilet. Clothing and baby diapers were also conveniently provided for their waste removal needs. How thoughtful. Or gross, depending on how you want to look at it. One of the children had injured her leg trying to escape at some point. I would also surmise that the children were likely not paragons of hygiene, either – if they were not afforded a toilet or basic food, I sincerely doubt the two adult vermin in the home bothered to let them bathe often. I could be wrong – but I doubt it.

Joshua has been charged with five counts each of false imprisonment and child endangerment, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia (LE found a glass tube and scale that both tested positive for meth). According to the first article, he was released on a $5,000.00 unsecured bond, and ordered to stay away from the children.

Meanwhile, bio-slag was busy telling police that they had the story wrong. Her man would never abuse her children. They were making things up. And blah, blah, blah. Then she said that she and boy-toy locked the kids in their rooms as punishment for disobedience. But never, I swear, NEVER for anywhere near 24 hours. Poor thing! Her horrible kids are lying about her and the BF! What rotten kids! Yeah, right. I’m not buying that load of manure. Sorry, I’m not a farmer, and don’t need the fertilizer right now. Try calling the FFA, wench, THEY might be in need of some BS for their fields. The walking uterus went on to say that Jerk-ua, was not a bad man, and that she had five uncontrollable kids who needed his brand of discipline. Not one, not two, not three, not four….but ALL five of her kids were uncontrollable. Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with the way they have been raised? Or abused. Take your pick. Perhaps if she had had a parenting class or two, her kids wouldn’t be so ‘uncontrollable’. But I digress. There is much more to this part of the story, but you can read about it tin the first link – I need to move along.

This brings us to the “two” in Two-fer. The scintillating snapshot above depicts two other people who were living in the ‘home’ at the time of the incident. Both of them were also arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, at the time of Jerk-ua’s arrest. Apparently the mother was spared at that time, AND allowed to retain custody of her children. I can not fathom why. Regardless, within a few days she, too would be behind bars. Why, you ask? Because she is an idiot. Allegedly. One of the idiotic comments she made to authorities when the Jerk was first arrested was that she would continue to discipline her children as she sees fit. Ummm…not so much, I guess. Not if you’re in jail.

It seems that Little Miss Thang, otherwise known as the babymama, aided Jerk-ua in disregarding that protective order mentioned above. Apparently there is a ‘secret door’ under the house that opens into a closet, by which the Jerk has been having conjugal visits with mommy dearest. (This is why I mentioned earlier that I suspected that their home was a ‘mobile’ home. Usually actual houses are not set up such that you can make an entrance to a closet from under the house.) Oops! Somebody reported them, and they are now both residents of the grey bar motel. They have both been arrested – he for violation of a protective order, and she for A&A, child endangerment, and driving on a suspended license. They should also charge her with criminal stupidity and meanness, IMHO. But I don’t think those things are crimes at this point – just character flaws. No word on bonds for either of them, but thankfully, the children have been removed and placed with others. Others who will feed them, and allow them bathroom privileges. Oh, and not lock them up. That’s pretty important, too.

Apparently, killing five children is not enough to warrant the title of “Monster”

Lawyer: Accused child killer being “portrayed like a monster”
Father who ‘killed his five children then bleached their bodies to hide stench

Murdering Monster

Timothy Ray Jones Jr., 32, of South Carolina, is being wrongfully portrayed as a ‘monster’ in the press, according to his attorney. According to this same attorney, all he really needs is a mental health evaluation. Pardon me while I puke.

This waste of oxygen killed his five children. The names and ages of these precious angels are: Merah, 8; Elias, 7; Nahtahn, 6; Gabriel, 2, and Elaine Marie, 1. While the article is unspecific about the exact cause of death, it did report that the children were killed “by violent means”. Then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, this worthless individual drove around with the dead bodies of his children, wrapped in trash bags, for several days. Through several states. And then dumped their tiny bodies on a rural hilltop in Alabama. It was reported that, at one point, Jones stopped at a donut shop for a coffee and six donuts. Did he think buying them donuts would bring the kids back to life? Sorry, monster daddy, it doesn’t work that way.

This monster killed his children, and he is upset that he is being portrayed as a monster in the press? Really? That came as a shock to him? How in the Sam Hades did he think he would be portrayed after killing five innocent children? As a saint? As a good father? How about as a murderous bastard? Does that sound better than ‘monster’?

The hired liar, oops, I meant to say his attorney, has said that he has been treated for mental health problems in the past, which tells me that they are likely planning an insanity defense. This man is not insane – he is vindictive. Plain mean. The article also mentions that he was upset because his wife slept with a neighbor. If I were the betting sort, I’d wager a significant amount on the likelihood that this depraved individual killed the kids to get back at Mommy. While I’m not condoning her actions, why did this worthless POS think that the children should pay for their mother’s infidelities? Perhaps the mother was beginning to recognize the ‘crazy’ signs, and wanted to be with a SANE individual for a change.

Think that’s bad? Wait! There’s more! This outstanding specimen of virility has a criminal record dating back to 2001 – when he was 19 years old. He was arrested for cocaine possession, auto theft, burglary and passing forged checks. What a catch, ladies! Isn’t this the kind of guy you want to father your children? Yeah, me neither. But apparently he found a woman who was willing to overlook his youthful indiscretions and give him a chance. Five chances. All of whom he later killed.

When Jones was apprehended, he was driving his SUV that, according to the arresting officer, smelled of death. The SUV contained blood, childrens’ clothes, maggots and BLEACH, with which he was apparently attempting to mask the odors of decomposition. Too bad he didn’t drink some of the bleach instead. The officers said he was also “high as a kite” on Spice, a synthetic form of marijuana.

Jones’ father, Timothy Jones, Sr., gave a statement to the press in which he referred to his son as a “very loving father, brother and son.” I don’t know about the ‘brother and son’ part, but I call BS on the ‘loving father’ description. Sorry, Sr., a loving father does not murder his children. Pick a different descriptor for your monster….ummmm…son, please.

In addition to the father’s statements, a couple of neighbors were also interviewed by the press. The Hyders, who lived next door when Jones and his wife were still married, indicated that they thought Jones was strange. His children were often dirty and disheveled, and in later months, very rarely seen outside at all. Apparently Jones had also been vaguely threatening on several occasions, and had once threatened to kill a dog owned by the Hyders. Mrs. Hyder said Jones was “a nut”. No! Ya think?

The mother of the children is said to be distraught over the deaths of her children, and rightfully so. I think she should be given a blowtorch, a claw hammer, and a taser – and fifteen minutes alone with Timothy in a police interrogation room. Oh, and full immunity for anything that happens during that fifteen minute span. We might not have to take this case to court after all.

What kind of sick do you have to be to think that killing your children is a solution to ANYTHING?!? I sincerely hope this guy gets the DP, and that it is mishandled like a couple of other recent cases, so that he suffers during his execution. I hope he suffers horribly.

He is currently awaiting transport to SC from Mississippi, where he will be formally charged. He is also on suicide watch. Great! Can I watch? Oh, wait, I was thinking of something else. If I were his guard, I would hand him a straight razor to shave with, and extra sheets to cover up with at night. Already torn into strips, to make the creation of a noose even easier for him. Plus an instruction sheet, outlining fifty ways to kill yourself in a jail cell. But that’s just me. I try to be helpful that way.
Merah, Elias, Nahtahn, Gabriel and Elaine. Precious babies, may you all sing and dance with the angels.

PS – Jerk-off Jones’ attorney has also said that Jones is ‘scared’ and wants someone to ‘guide him through the process.’ He should have considered how frightened his kids likely were as he was killing them. I bet they were freakin’ terrified. He doesn’t deserve to have someone to “guide him”, IMHO. Unless it’s to the electric chair – in that case, I volunteer to be his guide. Shoot, I’ll even flip the switch. No charge. And I’ll pay for the after-party as well.

“I dont UNDERSTAAAAAAND…..”

Parents: Mom didn’t understand abandoning baby
Another trashy mom...of a sort

Alicia Marie Englert, a 23-year old mother in Kearns, Utah, has been arrested for allegedly dumping her 2-day-old infant in a trash can. I question the need to use the term ‘allegedly’ here, because it seems she has confessed to the act, and given her reasons – she “hoped the newborn girl would die in the trash and solve her problems”. Ummmm…problems? What problems would those be? An overdose of inhumanity? Lack of common sense? A complete absence of compassion? Those ARE some pretty serious problems, but, unfortunately, I don’t think dumping your baby in the nearest trash receptacle is the way to solve them. Unless by solve them, you mean “make them worse”.

Apparently, she hid her pregnancy from her parents (whom the article indicates she was living with), and her parents have indicated that Alicia “had a learning disability and didn’t understand her actions.” Sorry, I’m gonna call BS on that. By her own admission, the baby was a “problem” that she wanted to “solve” and she hoped it would die in the trash. Those comments tell me that she not only understood the concept of death, but she knew that placing the baby in the trash could cause the death of her daughter. Premeditation. I don’t care how low your IQ is, if you can conceal a pregnancy, and devise a plan for getting rid of the baby after it’s born, you are smart enough to know better. For more comments from the parents and neighbors, check out the link above.

The baby was found by a neighbor who mistook the baby’s cries for those of a kitten, and went to fish the kitty out of the trash can. I’ll bet she was really surprised when the ‘kitten’ turned out to be a hairless, tailless baby girl. According to reports, the baby had not been fed or given any medical care before being placed in the can. Is anyone surprised? Yeah, neither am I. So the baby was born, left to go hungry for two days, and then unceremoniously dumped in a neighbor’s waste bin. She was airlifted to a hospital where she is currently in critical condition, and on a ventilator. I hope the poor baby improves, and is placed with someone who will lavish her with all of the love she deserves.

Back to the parents of this oxygen wasting baby factory….Both of them said she was – I’ll be nice here – mentally challenged. BOTH parents. They’re either lying, or they were not doing THEIR jobs in the parenting department either. She still lives at home, so perhaps she is not able to manage her own affairs. If that is the case however, then how in the name of Satan’s skivvies did she end up pregnant? And the parents don’t know who the father is? What?!?! do they just allow their mentally disabled daughter to run around with all of the neighborhood boys, sans supervision? If that is the case, then a case could be made against them for neglect, as well.

There are so many inconsistencies with this one that I have a feeling someone is going to be changing their tune, and soon. Alicia has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, and is currently a resident of the Chateau Grey Bar, AKA the Salt Lake County Jail. I hope she stays there for a good long time. Without food, and preferably in a trash can. A very SMALL trash can.

As a final aside, Utah has a safe haven law. If she really wanted to get rid of the “problem”, she could have taken the baby to the nearest hospital, and no one at her home would have ever been the wiser.

Car Surfing Should NOT be a Parent-Sponsored Activity

Police: Drunk mom drove with 6 kids on top of her car

Texas mom busted after driving home drunk with six kids on car’s roof, trunk: cops
Texas girl, 12, dies from head injuries after woman made her ride on car roof because of wet swimsuit

Why is she SMILING? She just killed a child!

Let me introduce you to Kisha Young, 39, of Crowley, Texas. She is the smiley-faced slag in the above picture. She is also an idiot, and (allegedly) a murderer. I have to add that “allegedly” until she is found guilty in a court of law, even though the facts of the case speak for themselves.

So….allegedly, Kisha and another mother decided this past June 17 to allow their six children to spend a day at the local community pool. During this time, Kisha and the other mother (whose name, for some strange reason, is not being mentioned in the articles) decided that while the kids were away, the moms should play. So, they got their drink on.

Fast forward a few hours now, and the kids are ready to come home, so the ‘moms’ drive to the pool to retrieve them. Apparently, Kisha and cohort had had a little TOO much to drink (or a LOT too much, but who’s counting, right?), and thought it would be a great idea to protect the upholstery in the vehicle from damp bodies….by having the kids ride ON TOP OF THE VEHICLE. Sounds great in theory, but not so good in practice, unfortunately.

As Kisha was rounding a corner on the trip home, not one, not two, but FOUR of the six children were flung from the roof of the Malibu. All of the children were taken to the hospital, where one later died. Octavia Watkins, daughter of the as-yet-unnamed passenger parent, succumbed to head injuries caused in the fall from the vehicle. According to multiple articles, all children have been removed from their respective homes, and Kisha has been charged with intoxication assault, a third degree felony. She posted a $110,000.00 bond and has been released from jail to await trial.

Now that the facts of the case have been presented, I have a few other issues to cover. Like why in blue Hades did these idiot women think it was a good idea to have their kids ride on top of a moving vehicle? Car surfing is illegal regardless of the ages of the participants, but you would think that a parent would be aware of the dangers and would not only refrain from encouraging such behavior, but would absolutely FORBID it. I know I certainly would. When I found out my adult daughter had tried this dangerous activity sometime during her college years (i.e. she was an adult) I STILL called her up and blessed her out. Yet these two stellar examples of intellect thought it would be OK to have SIX children ride on top of a Malibu. My head absolutely SPINS at the thought. And again, WHY was it a good idea? Because the kiddies’ swimsuits might damage the upholstery in the car. WHAT!?!? In what corner of the known universe is it considered acceptable to place the condition of your car above the well-being of your children?!?

Second issue: If this act had been condoned and carried out by just one adult, I might more easily have been able to pass it off as a random act of stupidity – but there were TWO consenting (and colluding) adults in this equation. TWO!!! This is no longer a random act of stupidity, folks. Someone needs to seriously consider testing the local water supply for high levels of lead or other brain destroying substances. Two people from the same area have the same short circuit between their brain and common sense, at the same time, and under the same circumstances – something’s wrong. Makes me wonder if alcohol was their only ‘happy helper’ that day.

Third issue: Kisha has been released on only a $110,000.00 bond? Really? And the charges are intoxication assault? Where are the murder charges? Where are the child endangerment charges (for the other children)? Where are the assault charges for the other three kids who fell off of the moving vehicle? Where are the attempted murder charges for those kids? You think I’m being too harsh? Not by a long shot, buddy. Driving your children around (or anyone else, for that matter) while intoxicated is attempted murder, IMHO. Putting them on the roof while you do it is even worse. This woman should have a list of charges against her as long as my arm. Or my leg. Or my front yard. I certainly hope the charges are amended (and increased).

Fourth issue: Why is the second mother (Octavia’s mother) not being named or charged in this incident? At the very least, she should be facing criminal facilitation or aiding and abetting. She made (or went along with) a stupid decision, and her child is dead. She needs to answer for that. But again, that’s just my opinion. Not worth much in the grand scheme of things, but there it is.

Oh, and one final WTF from me….WTF is that smut-eating smile on her face for? She just killed a child, and injured three others, and she is SMILING?!?!? Someone needs to smack that smile off her face. With a wiffle-ball bat. Or a brick bat. Whatever you prefer.

Lazy Slob Kicks Out A Kid- Keeps The Roaches

(Special thanks to Catalina for the post)

Mother arrested after 5 children are found living in feces-ridden, bug-infested home in Florida:

Yolander Lasane, zero fucks given

Yolander Lasane, zero fucks given

Yolander Lasane (45) of Orlando, Florida, gives zero fucks about anything but herself. It seems that as long as she has a working air conditioner and television in her bedroom, all is right in her world. She won’t even let a little animal feces and cockroaches come between her and feeling cool while watching her stories. I’m in the mind frame of live and let live…except when letting live involves neglecting 5 children.

The house of crap was discovered by police after they were called to check on Lasane’s 17 year-old. A Department of Children and Family worker was concerned about the teenager, who hadn’t been seen at home for weeks. When they entered the home, investigators found 5 kids, aged between 5 and 17, living in disgusting, deplorable conditions.

Luckily, the 17 year-old was found, and said the queen of filth and laziness had thrown her out, so she had been staying with a friend. However, the state in which the home was found is enough to make me gag and send shivers up my spine, because I’m a neat freak and entomophobic (not a fan of creepy crawlies).

According to the article (which, by the way, includes several photos of the cesspool), police found the usual decor adorning these shit shacks- dog feces and urine soaked mattresses where the children slept, rotten food, a broken toilet, and an insane amount of clutter. I bet that place smelled heavenly, especially in the middle of Florida’s hot summers.

Furthermore, the kids looked as if though they hadn’t bathed in a really long time, and no oral hygiene meant they suffered from rotten teeth.

The part that really got my tear ducts active was reading that one of the children begged police to be given to a new family. Damn it. That’s desperation right there.

And what was Lasane’s excuse for refusing to do her basic job as a mother and human being? The nasty slob said her excessive weight caused her to lose mobility and be bed bound. Those kids were left to their own devices, and neighbors said they often saw them wandering the streets, looking for jobs for money. Good grief, that’s not even close to being a normal childhood.

Lasane is being charged on five counts of child neglect causing great bodily harm. Oh, and the good-for-nothing loafer walked out to the patrol car for her arrest. It’s a modern-day miracle!

Meanwhile, the children are staying with relatives, while the state is looking to find them permanent homes. I hope with all my heart that those kids finally get to feel loved and cared for.

Thanks to Sherri for the tip.

“The Hills Have Eyes” – Australian style

The Australian families that hold dark secrets of incest and abuse

The case of incest and depravity which came to rest in the hills of a quiet country town

And we’re back to the cricket. Real life has been calling and in between work and study, there just hasn’t been the time for the writing. This story is about a month or so old and has been featured on The Dreamin’ Demon, but because it happened in Australia, I’m going to cover it here.

A massive inbred family had been discovered in a hidden valley, southwest of Sydney. Four generations of brothers and sisters, fathers and daughters, and uncles and nieces had been mating with each other, producing all in all 40 adults and children. Among the children was a five year old girl whose parents were the only ones who weren’t brother and sister. The discovery of the inbreds has been described as one of the worst cases of incest to have ever been made public.

Police discovered the clan, who go by the name of Colt, after reports were made about dirty children living in the hills. They were often seen with the clanswomen at the shops and did not seem to attend any sort of school. When the cops managed to track down where the children and women were coming from, they discovered a squalid settlement made up of rotting caravans and filthy sheds. Inside, the stoves and cooking appliances were caked in dirt and filth, rotting vegetables lay in a broken fridge. Exposed wiring and a chainsaw were accessible to the children. There was no sewerage connection, electricity or running water. Oh, and a kangaroo was sleeping on one of kids’ beds.

One of the sheds where the clan lived

One of the sheds where the clan lived

The Colt clan were made up of Betty (46), Martha (33), and Rhonda (47). Betty slept with her brother Charlie and two of her daughters. Genetic tests showed that Betty’s children and grandchildren were born from related parents. The family has been traced back to a set of great grandparents who were brother and sister, and the family has self-perpetuated from there.

The  younger children were affected as follows:

Betty’s children: Bobby (15) couldn’t walk properly, had skin issues and needed dental work. His speech was unintelligible and he wet the bed constantly. Learning was at kindergarten level; Billy (14) underweight, stunted growth, hearing and sight problems, unintelligible speech, learning difficulties and unable to read or count; Kimberley (14) and her daughter Raylene were underweight and didn’t know how to wash or brush their teeth; Brian (12) had no concept of hygiene and extensive dental problems. Betty’s older daughter Tammy (27) had three children, one of which had died of genetic deformities associated with inbreeding. Her children had been fathered by her brother Derek (25). All in all, Betty had 13 children, some fathered by her brother and some fathered by her own father Tim.

Martha’s children: Albert (15) and Jed (14) both had issues with speech, hygiene and dental problems; Ruth (7) was neglected and malnourished and she didn’t know what toilet paper was or how to use it (cue itchy feeling). Her sister Nadia (9) told of sexual involvement with her brothers (no doubt encouraged by the inbred breeders). The brothers had tied Nadia and their 13 year old niece-cousin to a tree naked. Martha’s children may have also been fathered by Tim.

12 children were removed from the compound. The youngest, who was only aged 5 years, was the only child to not have related parents. Perhaps it was Uncle ‘Roo that was her father? Or a hapless backpacker who inadvertently wandered into the campsite? The other 11 children had their inbreeding confirmed by geneticists who took mouth swabs from all of the people living at the camp.

Despite their horrible start to life, the children are now doing well in foster care. Some have been placed in treatment programs for the sexualised behaviour that their aunty-mums and daddy-uncles encouraged. All have made progress with schooling and hygiene. The aunty-mums have taken varying degrees of responsibility for the incest and sexual abuse of the children. Except for Betty, who for some reason still has supervised contact with her children-siblings. She denies any wrongdoing and her lawyer has disputed the court’s findings with the genetic testing.

So much WTF. I told Trench it’d be a good one.

Starvation and filth in Adelaide

Officials describe neglect case as one of the worst

Parents accused of starving child appear in court

Couple charged over failing to feed son

Thanks go to KH for the tip on this one, and to Trench for passing it on to me. I have been a bit busy with starting my Master’s degree, so this makes a suitable change of pace.

A couple from Adelaide, South Australia (23 and 27) have been charged with child neglect after their 4 year old son was found to be weighing only 8kg (17.6 pounds). The house was also a complete mess, with piles of used nappies and rubbish everywhere. The stench of the house could be smelled from the street, according to authorities. When the boy arrived at the local hospital, his condition was so bad that some of the medical staff who were treating him, required counselling.

Gross, nasty filth

Gross, nasty filth

Last year in March, Families SA were alerted by the family’s neighbours to concerns about the kiddo’s welfare. However when officials spotted the boy, they saw that he was fine. And then, because an NGO was involved with the family, Families SA saw no need to continue investigating the family, according to news sources. This case has prompted an internal investigation by Families SA into how it handled the case. A Child Safety expert has blamed a lack of communication leaving children vulnerable.

The breeders have been to court, where they were charged with criminal neglect and failing to provide food. The male (27) also had a charge of aggravated assault tacked on. They have been remanded in custody.

The young kiddo is now in the care of Families SA.

Bad Parent Sighting: “Not my responsibility, mate”

8 YEAR OLD BOYS CAUGHT ATTEMPTING TO START FIRE IN EAST MAITLAND

Two child firebugs, both eight, caught in Newcastle

Eight-year-old boys caught trying to light a bushfire

We haven’t had a Bad Parent Sighting for a while. I also like to call them the alliterative term “Piss Poor Parenting”. This one was seen in the newspaper and on the news, making excuses to try to absolve himself of parental duty.

For the last couple of weeks, New South Wales has been burning. We have had severe bushfires, brought on by hot, windy and dry conditions. Some of these fires were started by natural causes such as dry lightning. Others by accident, such as hot exhaust pipes on dry grass or electricity wires arcing in strong winds. However, a few of these fires were deliberately lit.

The case I want to bring to your attention happened recently. Two 8 year old boys were caught near East Maitland in the Hunter Valley, trying to light a fire around 7.30pm. They had piled up dry grass and dead leaves and were trying to light the heap with a cigarette lighter. It was only by sheer luck that the lighter didn’t work.

Police could not press charges due to the boys’ age (age of criminal responsibility in Australia is 10 years) and released them into the care of their parents (who were obviously not caring for them as they were wandering the bush at 7.30pm at night). When interviewed by news sources, the father of one of the boys had the hide to say this:

“I have 6 kids, I can’t be following all of them around the streets all the time. It’s not my responsibility, mate.”

What the fuck. They’re YOUR children! You chose to not wear a condom or get a vasectomy and beget 6 children. You have to live with that choice. What your child did was almost attempted murder. You should be begging for forgiveness and disciplining your child.

6 kids and unwilling to care for them. Old Mate needs to stand up once in a while. Same with his missus. Get a new hobby. And no, getting drunk down at your local pub while your unsupervised litter run rampant doesn’t count as a constructive way to pass one’s time. Some suggested hobbies would be getting a job in a nuclear reactor, keeping your phone in your underwear, getting kicked in the balls, wearing tight underwear, getting cardiovascular disease or diabetes etc. See where I’m going with this?

Mother dearest of the other boy involved said that her boy will be “grounded for a week”. Yeah, that’ll show him! NOT! “Grounded” = more likely playing Xbox while Mother also goes down to the pub and drinks away her welfare check. At least she took some responsibility for him unlike the aforementioned useless Old Mate. But this lack of proper discipline and consequences is probably what led to this kid thinking he could do whatever he liked, with no consequences to his actions whatsoever.

The police involved with the case, being mandated reporters, have reported both kids to be “at risk” to DoCS (Social Services). They were unsupervised and getting into a potentially very dangerous situation because their parents couldn’t be bothered to keep an eye on them. This is a small victory for the people of Maitland, who could have lost everything because of two very silly little boys and their inept breeders. Once you get the attention of DoCS (whether you really are abusing your kids or not), it’s very hard to get them out of your life. Social services will be investigating these useless people very thoroughly.

Sorry for the long ramble, but we have had fires close to us and it was very scary. To think that people could have lost their homes and livelihoods because of poor breeding just makes my blood boil.

 

Discussion point: Should parents be held responsible for their children’s criminal actions, if the child is under the age of criminal responsibility? Perhaps some fines to diminish the breeders’ pub money might straighten them out.

Greedy Gavin Ross is a deadbeat dad who lets his 7 children go hungry

 

Deadbeat

I wonder if his latest flame knows about the path of destruction he's left?

*Alternative captions – I wonder how the latest mark girlfriend feels about Greedy Gavin having his ex’s name tattooed on his arm? So he’d prefer to spend his money on crappy tattoos but not to feed his children.

‘Breeding machine’ dad owes thousands: partners

Child support dodger

Gavin Ross, a deadbeat dad from Melbourne, refuses to pay child support for his 7 children. According to his former partners, he owes them thousands of dollars. He has 7 children in all to 4 different women – 3 with one woman, then 1 with the second woman, 1 with the third woman and 2 with the fourth. The mother of his latest clutch of children, Rebecca Warner, claims that he owes her at least $3500 in back-pay to support her two kids that were unfortunate to come from his DNA. She warns other women that Greedy Gavin will make promises of a good life, and then leave them with nothing.

Ainslie Boylin has an 8 year old son from Greedy Gavin. She claims that he paid the extravagant sum of $15 over seven years, not enough to even buy formula for a hungry baby. She has since moved on with a new partner and new baby, and has stopped asking for the money.

It’s not like he doesn’t work and therefore can’t pay (a popular method for getting out of paying child support). Gavin Ross works as a concreter. For those of you from the US who are unfamiliar with Australian stuff, a tradesperson such as a concreter, plumber, electrician etc. can make as much as a doctor. Therefore, Gavin Ross is in a perfect position to pay all the child support he owes.

When A Current Affair approached Greedy Gavin to ask about the missing money and the welfare of his 7 children, he reportedly became aggressive. Not surprising in the least. When these bums are confronted with responsibility, it’s always someone else’s fault that they’re lazy and greedy.

While it’s not illegal to dodge child support obligations in Australia, it can damage one’s credit rating (it’s like failing to pay rent or bills). So if Greedy Gavin wants to borrow some money to buy a nice shiny Holden ute, get the latest iPhone or a McMansion somewhere, this can actually stop him from getting a loan or a phone plan.

Avoiding child support obligations should be classed as child neglect, because it’s failing to provide for a child’s needs.

Update: Looked him up on Facebook (couldn’t resist) and found some interesting, albeit unintelligible, pearls of wisdom about child support – “Well here we go …. I’m so fucking sick of my exes trying to put me away by playing games with my kids … I have made them so I’m going to be in there lives so don’t fuck with me I’m sick of it just let me be a dad I no Wat to do when it comes to my babeys and dhs would not no me becasue thay won’t talk to me … Beck and anz get over your selfs it’s not mine or my kids fault that we didint work out so grow up will yous” I think the gist of it was that the exes were trying to move on away from him (because he’s a deadbeat) and he wants the prestige of being a dad, without the responsibility. Maybe if he paid the proper amount of child support, he would be allowed into their lives. A real dad supports his children.

loves a feed

“That’s my boy loves a feed” – but if Gavin had to pay for it, he would go hungry.

"Bree I miss you so much don't let any one tell you any divrent love you breeza" - If you really loved her, you'd pay child support...

“Bree I miss you so much don’t let any one tell you any divrent love you breeza” – Actions speak louder than words, Gavin.

(I am extra vitriolic because I absolutely hate deadbeat dads. My ex uncle left my aunt to knock up and marry a career breeder with a tribe of kids from all different dads. My aunt struggled to provide for my cousin while his father lived it up in a penthouse on the Gold Coast.)
