Police-girl (8) found dead  under house

Police probe death of southern Illinois girl

Woman charged with concealing daughter’s death

See that face up there… the one looking all pissed off, that is Mary Zumwalt- Jophlin (28) and she has been charged with concealment of a homicidal death and obstruction of justice after police found the body of her 8-year-old daughter Alexus Smothers in a crawl space under their home.

You see, Mary did what all child killing “mothers” do she reported her little girl missing and of course those pesky police looked for her.  Dontcha just hate when they do their jobs?  I’m not sure what lead them to the search the crawl space, but they did and wha-la… there she was that missing daughter of hers and gosh dang it she was dead too.

Mary was arrested after giving police conflicting stories as to how her daughter died, first she called Alexus’ death “somewhat accidental” then called it “not accidental.”  Mary, Mary, Mary… which is it asshole?  See I am not a detective, but am I guessing an accidental death would not require you to take your baby and hide her body right under the freakin house you are living in.

Police were not sure what the exact cause of death was, and were awaiting toxicology reports.

Mary, being the stellar mother she is, has a history with CPS having had her three children removed in 2004 due to abuse and neglect.  They were returned to her care in 2005.  Well looks like that was a mistake! I wonder who was behind that wise decision.

I haven’t been able to find any updates on whether they have confirmed her cause of death or if the heifer has been charged with anything else.  If anyone finds anything please forward it on.

 R.I.P. Alexus, that smile of yours will surely be missed.
