Tag Archives: head-trauma
A 4-year-old little girl, being identified as “R.S.”, was dropped off happy, healthy and uninjured to her father Anthony Chavez and stepmother Gayla Hernandez on Wednesday, October 3rd. On Sunday she was dead suffering a brain herniation from possible head trauma with numerous bruises and scratches on her body in various stages of healing.
After giving several inconsistent stories, ranging from R.S. scratching herself in her sleep to her “possibly” falling off a bar stool, her father and stepmother were arrested.
Both have been charged with child abuse, child abuse with great bodily harm and conspiracy.
Thanks to Katelyn for the tip.
It’s Monday, I’m still tired from the weekend, and I wake up to this…
Three different cases, two dead children, and one six-month old with a fractured skull, but, thankfully still alive.
Nathan J. Brenner, 35, of Liberty Center, Ohio, has been charged with murder and three other charges in the death of his girlfriend’s 2-year old daughter, Emma Zehnpfennig. Emma died of severe head trauma, after spending a week on life support in Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. The boyfriend was ‘caring for’ the child when the injuries occurred. Apparently, the phrase ‘caring for’ is the new euphemism for ‘beating to death’, although the details of the abuse were not listed in this article – other than ‘head trauma’, of course. No word on the mother, Tabitha Zehnpfennig, or whether she has anything to say about the death of her baby. She has not been charged. Please, people, listen to me – no penis is worth the death of your child. Buy a dildo if you can’t live without sex, but don’t HIRE one to watch your kid for you! Geez….
Erin N. Taylor, 19, of Bowling Green, has been indicted on endangerment charges for the injuries to her 6-month old son, whose name was not listed in the article. The infant was taken to the hospital with a fractured skull and ‘other bleeding injuries’. WTF?!? How many injuries can a 6-month old have? Don’t answer that, it was a rhetorical question.
Rebecca Steinmiller, 25, also of Bowling Green, has also been charged with endangerment and is currently still a guest at the Gray Bar Motel (a.k.a. Wood County Jail), where her sorry arse has been sitting since May 11. I’m not sure why she has only been charged with endangerment, since the baby is DEAD, but there it is. 3-month old Carter Steinmiller died on May 5. The endangerment charges stemmed from a broken arm sustained several DAYS before the child was taken to the hospital. Steinmonster…oops…Steinmiller… called 911 on the evening of May 5 to tell them she had just awakened from a nap and found her baby not breathing. Good grief, people, I know babies are allergic to parents getting a reasonable amount of sleep (mine never wanted me to sleep for more than a couple hours at a time when they were that small), but the last time I checked, taking a nap was not enough to induce anaphylaxis in an infant. The cause of death has not yet been determined, but I would be greatly surprised if it was anything less than parent-induced. After all, this stellar parent DID withhold treatment of the broken arm for more than 4 days. The husband’s name was not mentioned, and I am wondering why, since he was present at the time,and should have been held equally responsible for the medical neglect, if nothing else…
That’s going to be it for me today – three strikes, and I’m out. I need to go hug my own babies for a while now, and remind them how much I love them.
May Karma join forces with Lady Justice to make this one b*tch of a day for the abusers.
I received no tips on this one – I actually stumbled across this one on my own.
That charmer above, with the “eff me, I’m hot” look on his face is Adrian Morgan Allen, the man with the biting chair. He lives in Bristol Township, PA, with his girlfriend, and what used to be three children. Because of A-demon No-man Allen, however, there are now only two still living in the home. The third one, an 18-month-old identified only as B.A., currently calls St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children her home. She is in critical condition suffering from major head trauma, among other injuries. Allen has been arrested for the first-degree felony aggravated assault of baby B. A. For the rest of this article, and until I find out the child’s actual name, I will refer to her as Beautiful Angel (BA), or just Beautiful, for short. Because she is – both beautiful AND an angel.
This guy is apparently only slightly more clever than a dead plant, since he did what many baby-beaters on this site attempt to do. He blamed the injuries on an inanimate object. That in itself would not make him more clever than a dead plant, but since he attempted to attribute human qualities to the chair, I gave him extra credit for using his imagination. Apparently his chair has teeth, and bit the child too.
I think I’ll start at the beginning, or as close to it as I can figure. Nakia Adams, the uterine apparatus that expelled three children, apparently needed a vacation – because she had left her children in the care of this creature while she was out of town. He is not the father of any of them. Why does that not surprise me? While Nakia was out of town, Beautiful was severely injured by the clitoral response unit. He claims that she pulled on a stack of 4 wooden chairs, and they fell on her. Well, you say, that could explain the head injuries, and a certain amount of bruising – but the medical professionals disagree. They’re pretty smart that way. I think even if they had been inclined to give A-demon the benefit of the doubt, after finding the other (and older) injuries, that bird flew right out the window. In addition to the head trauma and obligatory bruising, doctors found that she also had a broken arm, broken ribs….and a freakin’ BITE mark on her triceps! For those of you who are unfamiliar with anatomy, the triceps muscle is the one on the underside/back side of the upper arm. I just wanted to point that out to you, because we have had abusers (and commenters) in the past who have tried to convince us that most children chew on themselves for fun. Not in this case – not unless Beautiful wore dentures, and took them out and used them to bite the back of her arm. Anybody here think that might have happened? I thought not.
In addition to the recent injuries, Beautiful also had a leg in a cast from a spiral fracture inflicted back in January, and burn marks on the backs of her legs even older than that. The doctors said that the injuries were consistent with child abuse. Ya think?!?! My question for the doctors is: if the child had a cast applied in January, and there were already burn marks on her legs at that time – then why in the blue depths of HELL was she not taken from the mother then? You wanna know why? Do ya? Huh? I’ll tell you….because the walking incubator told the doctors that the injuries had been inflicted by a babysitter that she had since fired. The spiral fracture was blamed on Beautiful’s 8-year-old sibling. Way to go, mom! Let an arse-munch beat your kids, then defend him, and then blame your other kids! Gotta admire that loyalty – too bad she didn’t apply it to her kids rather than the slithering snake that crawled beneath her sheets. After this latest incident, however, she admitted that all of the injuries had occurred while Beautiful was in the care of A-demon. Yet, she left her precious baby with him for an entire weekend! She needs to have her arse arrested too. They should start with gross stupidity and endangering the welfare of a child, and work their way on up through criminal negligence and any other charges they can make stick. She is just as responsible for her child’s condition as the vag-filler is, because she knew he was an abusive piece of buzzard-dung, and left her kid(s) with him anyway. What a sorry excuse for a mother!
A few more details, and then I’ll let you go. The injuries were inflicted on Sunday morning, but A-demon waited a while before calling the mother – and then only told her that Beautiful was ‘sick’. And she wasn’t taken to the hospital until Nakia returned sometime later that evening. Oh, and A-demon made a statement to the cops as well – “I knew this would look bad on me.” Only because you caused it you worthless, oxygen-stealing waste of DNA… What a flocked up bunch of dodo birds this is!
The good news (if there can be any good news in something this horrible) is that the judge has set the boyfriend’s bail at one million dollars.
Thanks for this tip go to one of our newer readers, Abc. Abc just provided us with Beautiful’s given name. It is Kamille. I think I will leave her name in the article as it is though. Thanks again, Abc.
Kaitlynn Maxine Hill’s obituary
Here we go again…. another baby beaten to death at the hands of mom’s boyfriend. Will it ever stop?
Kaitlynn Hill (1) was not breathing when she arrived at Providence Northeast Hospital on Sunday, May 22nd. Little Kaitlynn had extensive bruising and head trauma. Her mother would tell WIS News 10 on Tuesday, May 24th that the baby was brain dead would likely be taken off life support the following Wednesday.
While Kaitlynn fought for her life, her mother’s boyfriend, Antwan Gaddist (31), and the person charged with caring for her on the 22nd turned himself into police. He has been charged with Homicide by child abuse. The judge set his bond at $75,000 and ordered him to have no contact with the Kaitlynn’s family. As Gaddist stood in front of the court, Kaitlynn’s mother told the judge she doesn’t believe Gaddist would intentionally harm her daughter and wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. Umm… what?
Why do women who date let the men in their lives baby-sit their children. I have two sisters, one recently married and the other very single, my nephew met two of my sister’s boyfriends in fifteen years of life and one of those men is her husband now. My other sister has allowed one of her boyfriends to meet my niece and he is a childhood friend turned romantic interest. Until my sister married my nephew was never left with her fiancé and my niece has never been alone with any man in my sister’s life. It’s not that hard, you keep your social life separate. It’s just not worth the risk; you leave the most precious of gifts with someone that you like… just because you like them does not make them ideal sitter material. The mistakes you make may cost your child their life! Think about it and call a reliable, safe baby-sitter.
R.I.P. Kaitlynn, you are a beautiful angel.
3-year-old Sophia Acosta was failed. She was failed by her mother, who should have protected her and didn’t. She was failed by her live-in baby sitter, who should have protected her and didn’t. She was failed by CPS, who was reportedly called and did nothing. So much failure, as we all know so well, equals death.
Sophia was taken to Hospital Central California in Madera after suffering major head trauma in the apartment she shared with her mother, her mother’s boyfriend, a younger sibling and her baby sitter on Saturday. Her injuries got the best of her… She died last night after being removed from life support. Police are calling the injuries “suspicious” (YA THINK??) and there are reports that little Sophia may have also been sexually abused. Her mother and the swinging piece of meat that occupied the vast space between her thighs are “people of interest”, but have yet to be arrested.
Family members are speaking out. Sophia’s great-grandmother, Ruth Williams, claims that the swinging piece of meat was physically abusive, but she holds the gestations device responsible as well (GG has her wits about her, I see).
“He slapped them all the time. He whipped them all the time. But they made her lie and say that he didn’t do it,” Williams told reporters, “She’s just as much to blame as he is. Death is not good enough for either one of them.”
Sophia’s 1 ½ year old sister has been placed in CPS custody. I hope that the monsters responsible for the murder of this beautiful little angel get what’s coming to them… and fast. I will update the story as updates become available.
Thanks go to Miss Debbie for the tip.
Man an accomplice to murder of his 4-year-old daughter, prosecutors say
Kearns father wasn’t home when girl died, but will he face a murder trial?
Thanks for this tip go to landysmom. One of our best readers…..
Our subjects today are Clinton Hart and Marina Navarro, both 21 years old…..it seems these two are less than civil. As a matter of fact, it would seem that they are less than HUMAN.
4-year old Vanessa Hart was beaten to death by her sperm donor’s crack snack (Navarro). With the help of the sperm donor (Hart). This murder is particularly atrocious, due to the extent of damage done to the child. The pediatrician who examined Vanessa at the hospital characterized the injuries as “the worst….I’ve seen outside of fatal motor vehicle accidents.” The little girl’s stomach was crushed against her spine to the point that blood vessels had been torn away from the colon. Part of the pancreas was also crushed, and the juncture of the small intestine and stomach was ruptured. Also discovered was extensive swelling of the brain along with cranial hemorrhaging caused by shaking and a blow to the head. All of this happened from a fall down the stairs, apparently. No….not really. Didn’t you read the first line of this paragraph? She was beaten to death.
The stairs are, as usual, simply a convenient (albeit unbelievable) scapegoat. The same pediatrician mentioned above stated that chances of these injuries being caused by accidental means are “as close to zero as you can get.” I guess Hart and his heartless witch will need to come up with another story. Which I’m sure they will. Perhaps they’ll try to blame the bathtub next. Or maybe little Vanessa’s sibling. Yup, she has a younger brother. According to a nephew of Hart’s who also lived in the home, Navarro rarely let either of the small children out of the basement bedroom that he referred to as the ‘dungeon’. Hmmm….dungeon and wicked stepmother….does anybody see a pattern here? Could this be a fairy tale? Unfortunately not. It may be a nightmare, but its no fairy tale.
Navarro (apparently preggo with Hart’s replacement child), has been charged with aggravated murder. In the state of Utah, this could get her the death penalty. I’m keeping my fingers crossed on that one. Hart was at work when the fatal beating occurred, but has abused the girl in the past, sources say. And he knew Navarro was abusing his daughter. I hope they try him for murder as well. And fry them in the same chair. No need to waste any extra electricity on either of these two monsters. I think we should just strip a lamp cord, place the stripped end into a puddle of water, make the two murderers stand in the puddle barefoot, and plug the cord into a wall outlet. Simple yet effective.
Just to show you all how extremely idiotic the sperm donor is, try this on for size……he claims that some of the bruising was caused when the child “ran into his fingers”, or was accidentally bruised when he was tickling her. What in the name of Satan’s underwear was he tickling her with? A freakin’ ANVIL???? And if the child had run into anyone’s fingers with enough force to cause bruises on her, I’d be willing to bet that the fingers in question would also be broken. Just sayin’…..
Just because I always wonder about these things…..I wonder where the bio mother was…..and where is she now?
Update: One of our readers (Manda) sent in a link which is posted in the comments thread, and also here. It answered my questions about the mother. Apparently jag-off took the children for a ‘weekend visit’ and promptly disappeared. Probably to avoid child support payments. Or maybe just for meanness – who knows? Jag-off and his pube-pet then lit out for parts unknown, and the bio mom had not seen either of them in over a year. Unfortunately, her first glimpse of her precious girl in almost 18 months was also one of the last glimpses she had of her daughter alive. The baby died shortly after the mom arrived at the hospital. If there’s any justice in the world, Hart and Navarro will both be dead long before their trials – at the hands of some inmate who finds out what they did to this sweet baby.
Thanks for the tip, Manda.
Boise dad charged with murder of infant daughter
Mother struggles after father charged in 11-week-old’s death
Jeffrey Alan Baker has been charged in the death of his 11 week old baby girl. Gracelynn Noelle Baker died in the hospital on May 14, after being there for 4 days. The coroner listed abusive head trauma as the cause of death. That’s another way of saying shaken baby syndrome. Baker shook an 11 week old baby so hard that she died of brain injuries. Wow, what a big man….beating up a baby must make him feel really special. Maybe his cellmates will show him what shaking is all about – we can only hope.
Baker, 50, was originally incarcerated on May 17, for an unrelated parole violation. Yet, he apparently had unsupervised contact with the baby prior to the ‘violation’. What idiot thought this would be a good idea?
The mother of Gracelynn, Shawna LeBleu, is said to be devastated by the loss, and had no reason to believe the baby’s father would harm her. She said Gracelynn was a wonderful baby, placid and happy. She says she doesn’t understand how he could have gotten so irritated with the baby. LeBleu herself had prior trouble with drugs, but had gone to rehab and was trying to straighten out her life. For now, I will give her the benefit of the doubt and hope that it turns out she had nothing to do with the baby’s injuries.
A big thank-you to Veronica for this tip!
Little Reina Stone was abused almost to the point of death by her mother’s boyfriend. That’s where this story parts ways with most other stories of abusive boyfriends on this site – because Reina’s mother, Adrienne Hosiner, 25, is NOT defending the bastard who hurt her baby. She wants him to receive the punishment he deserves. Way to go, mom!
Reina, 2, was beaten so severely by Nicholas Kokotovich III, 23, that she now has brain damage, and may never be the same again. The doctors have not made a definitive statement about her final prognosis, but the little girl’s family is hopeful that she might make a full recovery. I pray that she does too. Looking at the picture of Reina – what that monster did to her – I am amazed she survived!
Kokotovich apparently beat the child so badly that her head is now misshapen. And for what? Because she told him “No” one too many times. That’s right. Every 2-year-old’s favorite word – “no”. And she was almost killed for it. The article also said that he only used his hands to beat her……I cannot imagine the force required to cause that much damage being done only with the hands. It looks like he hit her with a board, the way the side of her head is flattened out. If there is any justice in the world, he will get to feel that kind of pain in prison.
Kokotovich apparently had an addiction to oxycontin in the past, which he told Adrienne he had beaten. Ummmm……yeah. Not so much, I guess. The beating reportedly happened after Kokotovich got some oxy from a friend (leaving the child alone in the home while he went to get it), and then came home and got irritated because Reina kept saying “No.” So he beat the living crap out of her. Well……he said he hit her once, and she started crying, so he hit her again to make her be quiet. Because we all know how beating the snot out of your kid (or someone else’s) will shut them right the hell up. Eventually. Maybe permanently. Arrrrgggggghhhhhh! It takes a special kind of stupid to think that hitting a child will make them STOP crying…..that’s what usually makes them START making that noise, idiots! Don’t hit ’em, and they won’t cry!
I saw Reina’s pic, read the article, and had to post this. I won’t post all of the details, because you can link to the article – and I think you should because a fund has been set up for her, and the information about it is in the article.
And….since I can’t pass up the chance to be repetitive…..Ladies! Don’t! Leave! Your! Kids! With! Your! Boyfriends!!!!!!!! It rarely works out well for the children! Just because they’re good in bed does not mean they’re good with kids. And just because they may be able to make them does not mean they want to put up with one who is not theirs.
Cathy sent us this tip about a couple of winners from North Carolina who tried to off their three month old. Again….WHY would anyone plot the murder of an infant? After looking at their pictures, I may have come up with the answer…..if the baby is a result of his DNA infecting her DNA, they may have decided that the baby was too ugly to live. Any offspring of the two of them would have to be pretty hideous! But, still, it’s just a baby! And ALL babies are valuable, lovable people.
It seems that William Dean Plaster Jr., and Shannon Fortenberry, both 37, have been arrested for causing grievous bodily harm to their 3 month old son, William Dean Plaster III. The baby was taken to a local hospital on April 22, and was airlifted from there to Wake Forest Medical Center. He had multiple broken bones, and severe head trauma which resulted in retinal hemorrhaging, and bleeding on the brain. The doctors say this will leave little Will with permanent impairment. The doctors also say that the injuries were intentionally inflicted.
Both of the disgusting losers have been charged with attempted first degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, felony child abuse, and child abuse inflicting serious injury. Both are being held on a 10 million dollar bond. Yes, you read it right – 10 MILLION dollars!!!!!! Finally! A judge who has balls enough to keep animals like these behind bars until trial. Good job, judge!
The two bipedal animals are accused of abusing William between Jan. 9 and
April 22 of this year. I’m guessing Jan. 9 is either his birthday or the day he was sent home from the hospital (3 days old?). Trench…doesn’t NC have a safe haven law? Why didn’t these people just take him to a fire station, or better yet, just walk away from the hospital without him? I’m sure there are plenty of people who would love to have a son. I’d be happy to take him myself – my son could use a brother, since he only has sisters to play with now…a LOT of sisters….
Karen would take him, too, I’m sure…as would many of the other women who visit us here at BB. I hope these DNA donors are locked away for life, and never get to even see a picture of this sweet baby again. And I hope they play recordings of a baby crying for the duration of their sentences, just to make them crazy – oh, wait…they already ARE crazy. Well, just to irritate them, then. Added punishment – since I’m pretty sure at least one of them will use the “he was crying” defense. Y’all let me know how that works out for you, hmmm?
