Miss. Breeder charged with dumping newborn…again

Police release more details on abandoned baby:

Cora Lynn Watkins

Cora Lynn Watkins

25-year-old Cora Lynn Watkins has been arrested in Houston, Mississippi, for allegedly abandoning her newborn baby in a storage shed. She allegedly gave birth alone, left the baby wrapped in a blanket then returned to work. Luckily some children heard the baby crying. The article states that the kids got some family members but it’s unclear, to me at least, if they were Watkins’ family members. Either way the baby was taken to the hospital and at last report is doing well.

However this isn’t the first time that Watkins has done something like this. She was arrested back in 2010 for abandoning a baby at a Salvation Army. She received probation for that offense and was just released from probation last month. I doubt this time she’ll be so lucky.

It may have been a while since we discussed this but baby dumping like this is so unnecessary. All 50 states have Safe Haven laws where you can drop a newborn off safely with no questions asked. Specifically in Mississippi you can drop a newborn up to 3 days old at a hospital, adoption center, emergency room or EMS station.

Once again I have to ask are the safe haven laws so unknown that this keeps happening?

3-year-old scalded in bathtub, mom charged.

 

Gabrielle Shantel Collins

Scalded girl, mother charged 

Meet Gabrielle Shantel Collins, a 22-year-old pregnant mother of four.  She has been charged with injury to child, after admitting she placed her 3-year-old daughter in a tub of scalding water.

On October 21st, Collins’ daughter was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital –Texas Medical Center with severe scald burns to both legs, the left thigh and both buttocks.  According to the doctors the girl’s burns could result in permanent scarring or impairment and may require her to undergo physical therapy.  Holy Shit!

Police say  Collins says she did not mean to burn the girl that she was only trying to bathe her after the children made a mess of themselves with cake, but admitted to holding the girl in the water despite her screaming and crying that the water was to hot.  She also told police she was overwhelmed with her four children and the one on the way, and that she needed help caring for them.

Her bond was set at $30,000.

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.

There’s this thing called an ambulance

Parents accused of injury to child:

18-year-old Dominique Lawrence and 25-year-old Daylan Johnson, both of Houston, Texas, were arrested last week for allegedly abusing their 7-month-old daughter.

They took the girl to the hospital after they say she was being lethargic and had a loss of appetite. The hospital said different claiming they found fractures on both sides of the girl’s skull, a fractured femur and evidence of attempted suffocation.

But the real kicker on this story is the fact that the Breeders did not call 911 to get their own flesh and blood to the hospital as soon as possible. They took the freakin’ bus to the hospital. It took them THREE HOURS to get to the hospital. Police say they were worried about tipping off CPS by calling 911. Again more scum that is more concerned about being arrested than the health and welfare of their own child. I guess they thought that CPS is all knowing but they could fool people who have medical degrees.

This gives “Let’s go to church” a whole new meaning….

Liberty County officials take 3 boys from mother

OK, this is a massive fail for these three kids all the way around, in my opinion. There is no mention of the mother’s name in this story, but if I find out what it is, I’ll be sure to let y’all know.

Apparently a ‘mother’ of three boys, ages 11, 8 and 1 year, has had her kids removed from her because she made the 8 year old go to church. That’s crazy….right? Except it’s not. The ‘church’ was an abandoned church building that she forced the 8 year old to stay in, alone, and with only a paint can and roll of toilet paper for comfort – as a means of punishment. She would hit the boy with a yardstick all the way to the church, then lock him inside for hours at a time. Neighbors witnessed this cruelty, and did nothing. By nothing, I mean that this cruelty went on for some time before a neighbor got around to reporting the witch. Fail #1 – neighbors look the other way for a while.

This woman had already been investigated at least four times previously for failing to care for her children adequately. Fail #2 – CPS dropped the ball.

Each child had a different father, and one of the dads was jailed in another state for sexually assaulting a minor. Great role models, huh? That would be fail #3.

In 2005, an ‘uncle’ (my guess is that’s a euphemism for step-penis) held down one of the kids and forced him to watch porn. CPS did not remove the kids from the mother’s custody. Why? Because the mother ASSURED them that she could take care of the kids. Great job, mom! Great job, CPS! No, not really. Fail #4.

And since I have homeschooled my children in the past and plan to in the future, I almost hate to mention this, but I will. Just to keep others from trying to use this case as an example of why homeschooling should be illegal. The woman got away with the abuse for so long because she was homeschooling her kids, and they had no opportunity to report her themselves. That is NOT an indictment against homeschooling. As I said, I homeschool mine. They are not abused. They have plenty of outside contact with others through church (not being locked in one – attending services on Sundays and Wednesdays), extracurricular activities and sports, birthday parties (theirs and those for other kids), and a multitude of other opportunities for interaction with their peers. I just wanted to put that out there, so (maybe) no-one would try to make this about homeschooling. It’s not about educational choices here, it’s about a stupid woman abusing her kids, and CPS allowing it to continue for years.

This story comes to us by way of Carolyn. Thanks for the tip.

Houston woman accused of burying infant alive

Mom Allegedly Buried Amber Alert Baby:

Autopsy: Baby was alive when he was put face-down in mud:

We’ve posted some horrific stories here. Unfortunately not all the stories stick out in my mind and I’m sure as much as you would not like to admit I’m sure the same happens to you.

This is one that will stick out in your mind for a long time. This is your warning.

Narjes Modarresi of Houston, TX, reported her 2-month-old son, Masih Golabbakhsh was kidnapped this past Wednesday. Police issued an Amber Alert in order to try and find the child.

While police were searching for the baby they also continued to question Modarresi who eventually allegedly confessed to burying the baby.

And by burying I unfortunately don’t mean she murdered the baby and buried the body, she allegedly buried the baby alive according to the autopsy.

The autopsy showed the baby died from asphyxiation. His lungs, stomach and airway were filled with mud and water, indicating he was alive when he was put face-down in the mud.

And in case you weren’t sufficiently enraged enough Golabbakhsh is being represented by the same slime sucking suck hole attorney that represented the original Bad Breeder Andrea Yates. And we all know how much of a goat fuck that turned out to be.

Texas clown car accused of starving child

34-year-old Almita Nicole Lockhart of Houston, Texas is accused of starving her 8-year-old daughter, Halle Shamille Smith, to death.

Lockhart is a known drug addict who had nine other children, hence the clown car comment. CPS had investigated her on several occasions but the children were never taken away.

I bet they’ve taken them away now.

Vegetarian man beats 3-year-old son to cast out the meat demons

Father jailed in beating of 3-year-old:

The smiling idiot over there is 35-year-old Jacky Tran of Houston, Texas. He beat his 3-year-old son so badly that according to police the child’s head was the color maroon. And why did Tran think the child deserved such a helalcious beating? Tran, who is a Buddhist, became an extremist in his views recently and the vegetarian Tran thought the boy had demons after he ate a piece of meat.

The strange thing is that Tran had no prior criminal record and CPS had never been to the house before. That makes me think that he either went certifiably insane in a very short time or someone whispered into his ear to make him have new found zealotry in his beliefs.

And before anyone gets up in my grill this isn’t an indictment on Buddhism or vegetarianism, it’s just on one psycho who happens to be both.

Newborn found in dryer

Newborn Found Abandoned In Old Dryer:

What is it with kids and dryers lately?

This past week a newborn was found inside of an abandoned clothes dryer in Houston. The baby still had the umbilical cord attached and was found stuffed in a trash bag inside the dryer. Luckily some passerbys heard the baby crying and rescued it from it’s plastic and aluminum prison.

Texas safe haven laws allow a person to give up the baby at a safe haven for up to 60 days.
