See that face above, the one devoid of emotion that is Christopher Scott Ryon (27) of Winter Haven, FL.He is the epitome of selfishness, what he has done to his 3-month-old daughter, Riley, and why is pretty cut and dry, but nothing short of evil.
On March 27th, Kristine Bardell (27) arrived home on her lunch break to see her unemployed boyfriend and their baby girl, Riley. While Kristine set about making lunch, she woke up her boyfriend and asked him to check on their daughter. He returned claiming the baby was fine. Well, Riley wasn’t fine and Kristine, bless her broken heart, was the one who discovered that fact a short time later. Kristine went into the bedroom to check her “sleeping” baby girl and to her horror, found Riley face down on the bed. When she turned her over, her face was blue and she wasn’t breathing. She immediately grabbed her baby girl, ran her to her father, handed her off to him and frantically called 911 as he began administering CPR. Rescue workers arrived, took over CPR and transported Riley to Winter Haven Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
On March 28th, the medical examiner conducted an autopsy and concluded the baby had a skull fracture 6.5 centimeters long, indicative of blunt force trauma. OMG…poor baby.
When Ryon was informed of his daughter’s horrific injuries and cause of death, he immediately said he may have dropped her from a height of three inches on to the bed. Liar! Interestingly enough, throughout his entire police interview, Ryon would refer to Riley as “it”. “It”? That’s your baby girl; your flesh and blood, you fucking asshole. Gawd, I hate you!
He would eventually admit to punching the baby in the head because…wait for it… she would not stop crying and her pesky crying kept his unemployed, lazy ass from NAPPING! Riley’s screams, he said, “go through me like bullets.” Of course he said he didn’t believe he struck Riley very hard, but described it as a 6 or 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. After he PUNCHED Riley she cried for another five minutes the fell silent. He checked on her and believed her to be fine. Ummm…what? Her mother found her fucking face down on the bed. I am no expert, but I do believe a non-moving, 3-month-old, face down in a bed is pretty fucking indicative of something definitely NOT being fine!
Ryon has been charged Aggravated Manslaughter of a Child.
