Obituary for Quinten

I happened upon this story, as I tend to do when I trawl the ‘net for other things. I shared a link with Trench, who then offered me a CNN news link. Unfortunately, this seems to be the only “legit” news link I have come across, which is very sad. We have had to rely on all the sites that Quinten’s sister have published on to get more information. There are photos of the living conditions that the boys were forced to endure, plus photos of Quinten and his brother Cameron.

This story is about a sister, Valerie Wood-Harber, who was brave enough to blow the whistle on the poor living conditions to which her bio breeder Michael Wood had subjected her younger brothers Cameron and Quinten. She alleges that all the housework and care of Quinten was foisted upon young Cameron. You see, Quinten has a ring chromosome disorder which caused him to be unable to care for himself, use the toilet, feed himself, walk or talk. Instead of Mr. Wood caring for his son like he should have done, it is alleged that he just gave up and allowed Quinten to become gravely ill without seeking medical help for him. It is on a grubby, pee stained couch that Quinten died at the age of 15 years, holding the hand of his best friend and brother Cameron.

When Cameron told Valerie of the poor living conditions, as well as physical and emotional abuse that their own father was subjecting them to, she made a difficult yet sensible decision – she called Child Welfare Services and sang like a canary. They promised her that they would do a home study and that everything would be okay. Three weeks passed, and nothing was done. Valerie tried her damnedest to clean the trailer up and buy food for the boys. It was all in vain. The trailer would be exactly the same way when she returned the next time. The fridge would be empty again. Cameron told her that if it weren’t for her buying groceries, they would probably starve.

Valerie had taken the boys in after a mere three days of discovering that they existed, when their father took off to work overseas. She looked after them for 4 years, right up until Quinten started having issues with living with a “stranger” and Cameron needing his dad. Valerie did not have the time nor the resources to get the boys the help they needed, so with a heavy heart, she sent them back to their dad. She couldn’t have known that this decision would have cost Quinten his life. She had begged her father to let her take the boys until he got back on his feet, but he allegedly threatened her with never seeing the boys again if she implied that he was anything less than a good father to them. He would also have her charged with kidnapping, and because she lived in the next state, it would have been a felony.

Michael Wood is currently free from prosecution, as there had been NO investigation made by social services. Quinten’s death was officially caused by pneumonia, which the coroner blamed on his ring chromosome condition. Quinten was scrawny and malnourished, but again that was blamed on his condition.

Valerie is working around the clock to see her father brought to justice and to see Oklahoma Social Services investigated for their role in Quinten’s death.

I took offence to the poor reporting skills of the journo who wrote the CNN article. It barely touched on the accusations of child abuse made by Valerie and basically made it out to be a sob story. However, it does provide more opportunities to feel contempt for Michael Wood. According to the article, Wood claimed that Quentin suffered from recurrent ear infections which antibiotics could not clear. Valerie states that Quentin never became sick when in her care. He also claimed that he went to DHS for help with Quentin (um, your daughter offered to take the boys and you nearly bit her head off with threats of kidnapping charges). DHS declined to comment on whether there was any record of Wood visiting DHS. He even went as far as to blame his imaginary friend God for Quinten’s death. No sir. You kept them in a hovel, you didn’t buy any food and you rejected your daughter’s pleas to take better care of the boys. This is squarely on you.

It is so sad that there wasn’t much more on news sites and that I had to rely on unofficial new sights. Valerie is trying hard to get her brother’s story told, and I hope by putting it on BB, that it will help.

RIP Quinten Douglas Wood.

 

Coroner investigating parents’ role in death of obese boy

Inquest examines parents’ role in obese boy’s death

Obese boy’s death examined by coroner

3 years ago, a 10 year old boy from Newcastle died from complications related to morbid obesity. At only 7 years old, he weighed 50kg (110lbs) and had a body mass index double of what it should have been. A NSW coroner is now investigating his parents for possible child abuse/neglect and the role they played in their son’s decline and eventual demise.

As far back as 2007, the boy had been in and out of hospital with obesity related problems, and his parents had been provided with a weight management plan. Yet he put on an additional 6 kg shortly after leaving John Hunter hospital.

He had been the subject of several reports to DoCS and other authorities because of his parents’ drug use and his obesity-related health issues for which his parents refused to seek medical help. The boy suffered from sleep apnoea (like snoring, but the boy stopped breathing for short periods of time) and appointments were made for him to have his tonsils and adenoids removed, and various other weight management specialists.  The inquest heard that many of the appointments were missed and that the boy never got the help he needed.

His parents also were slack on his school attendance. In his short education, the boy had missed 103 days of the 2010 school year. The parents blamed his sleep apnoea (yeah cos it’s totally the kid’s fault), but when they were threatened with criminal action, they promised to improve his attendance rate.

The exact circumstances surrounding the boy’s death are unclear, but he was found slumped over on a lounge before he stopped breathing while en route to the hospital. After 12 minutes without oxygen, he had suffered a massive brain injury and was put on life support, where he died a few days later.

Now, I know this may be a touchy subject for the American audience. But here goes…letting your child get so fat that they have trouble breathing IS child abuse! The kid wasn’t out buying the wrong sort of foods, this was 100% on the parents! The parents were shoveling garbage into their kid, enabling the bad habits and then trying to cover it up by keeping him away from doctors and school. Just like how starving a child can lead to malnutrition and other health issues, feeding a kid McDonald’s and KFC everyday will also cause major health issues.

This boy’s death was 1000% preventable.

The inquest continues.

Suspicious death of boy who “fell off a pogo stick”

Death of boy, 7, who fell off pogo stick treated as suspicious

Pogo stick death: Mother waited 24 hours before calling paramedics

pogo stick

Homicide detectives are investigating the death of 7 year old Levai Bonnar, from Oatley in Sydney’s south, who reportedly fell off his pogo stick and died of a head injury. It started out as a seemingly innocent accident, but police now have reason to believe that this is a homicide (whether directly or indirectly caused by someone’s actions).

According to his mum, Kayla James, Levai was riding on his pogo stick inside their Mulga Road flat on Monday morning when he fell off, hit his head and lost consciousness. She said he stayed like that, but was still breathing at 10.30pm when she checked up on him. On Tuesday morning, Kayla woke up at 6.15am and found Levai was not breathing and had no pulse. She rang 000, 24 hours after Levai had hit his head, and the ambos pronounced him dead at 6.30am.

Just process that for a bit. Kayla did not seek medical help after her son was KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS! That is why the police think this is suspicious. She did not seek help for her injured child and her inaction cost Levai his life. Head injuries are not something that will “go away”, you need to seek medical help when one happens. Everybody knows that. And who the fuck lets their kid play with a pogo stick inside?? Roller skates/blades, bikes, pogo sticks etc. are outside toys. Not only did Levai hit his head from bouncing around in such a cramped space, he would have destroyed stuff or knocked over his siblings too.

Police reviewed footage from a nearby CCTV camera and found that Kayla’s partner, Kodi James Maybir, was quickly disposing of rubbish in the 15 min timeframe between Kayla finding Levi and the ambos arriving. Hmmm, why was disposing of that rubbish the most important thing at that exact moment? “Oh honey, my poor son is dead, can you please do a quick tidy up before the ambos get here?” Luckily the police found that nugget, because they’ll be rummaging through the bins and they might just hit paydirt, such as bloodied clothing, a possible murder weapon, and other interesting gems.

I very highly doubt that Levai’s injuries were caused by “falling off a pogo stick” and Kayla’s story just doesn’t add up. Firstly, you do not ride a pogo stick inside. There’s just not enough room in a regular house, let alone a flat. Secondly she waited for over 24 hours to call an ambulance, and then only because Levai was dead. If it really was a fall from a pogo stick, she would have called an ambulance straightaway, because a fall from a pogo stick is an accident. This long stretch of time between when Levai was knocked unconscious and when Kayla actually got medical help (which by then it was too late for him) indicates that Kayla and Kodi may have something to hide about what really killed Levai. Police are looking at forensic evidence and trying to piece together a timeline of what happened. An autopsy will also be performed on Levai.  Good luck trying to get any clues from Kayla, who didn’t call for help for her little boy, who instructed her boyfriend to throw away rubbish (read: evidence) before the ambulance arrived and who may very well be spraying bullshit everywhere to cover her own arse or her boyfriend’s.

The family is known to DoCS, meaning that there has been previous complaints against Kayla and/or Kodi. Kayla separated from Levai’s father and went to live in a caravan park with Levai and his siblings before moving to the flat in Oatley with Kodi.

Rest in Peace little Levai. Bounce in Heaven.

Confinement, starvation and neglect: the perfect course of treatment for a UTI!

Couple charged after little girl found locked in basement in deplorable conditions

Bad sperm donor Timothy A. Phillips and his hole-of-the-week Lacey A. Chaney

First of all hats off to Steve for the tip, and thanks to Lucy for some encouragement. I cannot stop laughing at the mugshot of the bad girlfriend up there. Look at her with her bottom lip stuck out, like a cranky toddler that won’t take a nap. But then again, it’s sort of like a smile. She just looks ridiculous. The bad dad just has that pissy defiant look on his face that most bad breeders have, which isn’t so funny.

The bad dad Timothy Phillips (30) and his live-in dick warmer Lacey Chaney (27), from Kansas City MO, have been charged with abuse and neglect of a child, endangering a child, and felonious restraint, after it was found that the bad dad’s 9 year old daughter had been segregated from the family and forced to live in the basement. The neglect and abuse of the young girl was noticed by the school nurse at an elementary school in Independence, MO. The diligent nurse noticed that the little girl reeked of piss and that she’d told the nurse that her private parts hurt. The nurse examined her and found that her vaginal area was red and irritated. She also told the nurse that she wasn’t allowed to use the bathroom at home and was forced to go to the toilet outside because her family didn’t want to contract the infections that she had!

The Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies turned up after the nurse filed a complaint, and indeed found that the little girl was forced to live in an unfinished basement with little food and water during the day as a punishment for a recent school suspension. Well, no shit, I’d act up too if my parents were anything like these fucksticks. She was forced to sleep on an air mattress in a basement, with dirty carpet, exposed wiring and overflowing sewerage. But the harsh living conditions weren’t instated before bad dad “popped” the little girl in the mouth and “whooped” her butt. Wow, Timothy’s such a tough man, smacking a little girl in the face. No wonder the bad girlfriend thinks he’s such a great catch, being able to defend her from those menacing pre-teens /sarcasm.

The bad dad, the bad girlfriend and her son lived upstairs while the little girl was forced to live in the basement. Bad dad’s reasoning for this, according to court documents, was that she lacked bladder control and that he couldn’t afford to keep cleaning up after her, and that “when she pisses, she leaves a huge puddle”. It didn’t occur to him that his little girl may have had a physical or pyschological issue that was causing her to lose control of her bladder. It didn’t occur to him that she may have been embarrassed by her lack of bladder control and needed help, not abuse. As for not being able to afford to clean up after her? How can you not be able to afford cleaning products? Unless he’s getting the carpet professionally cleaned every week, it’s just another bad breeder excuse. Here’s what I use to clean up animal piss (I have an ageing cat who sometimes has accidents) – Vinegar and bicarb soda. That’s it. The bicarb absorbs the smell and the vinegar neutralises the ammonia and also gets rid of the staining and smell. The fuckstick just could not be bothered.

Bad dad also went on gloat confess about his neglect of his daughter, saying that he only bathed her every 5 days or whenever she started to smell. He thought that she didn’t like to be bathed because of previous sexual abuse that occurred in the shower. I presume that might have happened elsewhere (like at her mother’s) but I have a very bad feeling it may have been while she was living with her sperm donor and his dick warmer. According to police documents, his excuse for not washing the little girl’s clothing was that the washing machine was broken. But when police went into the bad girlfriend’s son’s room, they found that all his clothes were clean and neatly folded. BUSTED!!

The bad girlfriend reckoned that the little girl peed herself to keep people away from her. So, why was it not investigated as a sign of something very wrong? The bad girlfriend was also the one to ban her from the toilet, because she thought she caught an infection from her. No, she probably caught it from the dropkick she was fucking.

On top of all of that, it was found that the little girl was suffering from a potentially deadly staph infection. Bad dad’s excuse for not getting her to a doctor? “She’ll just piss on herself anyway”.

Now for my two bob: Firstly, you cannot contract a urinary tract infection (UTI) from a toilet seat. That’s just ridiculous. Secondly, did it ever occur to bad dad and bad girlfriend to take the little girl to a doctor and have it cleared up? No? I’m not afraid to admit that a few years ago, I had a very bad UTI. It felt like I was pissing razor blades. A few rounds of bicarb soda in water (blech) and some cranberry juice (yum) and I was right as rain. You don’t even need to see a doctor unless you’re pissing blood. Easy as. UTIs often cause a frequent need to go to the toilet. And not just a “hold on a sec”, it’s “I’ve got to go NOW!”. Even if the little girl didn’t have pysch issues, that symptom of infection would cause her to piss herself if she couldn’t get outside in time.

The little girl has been taken to hospital for treatment of the infections she was suffering. Her sperm donor and the dick warmer are being held on a $100,000 bond. Hopefully the extended family are smart enough not to waste their money on these rejects and instead put it towards raising the little girl.
