Bitter custody fight foreshadowed abduction

This is a very sensitive case so I’m going to refrain from name-calling in this one.  Also all you’re getting here is facts no interjection from me.  All of this write up is compiled of facts that I gathered from various reputable news sources.

Mourad Samaan and his ex-wife Marcia Fay have been fighting over their little girl all of her short life.  According to court documents it all began before her birth.  The couple separated before she was born.  On the day she was born her father had to force his way in to see her after her birth.  His respons was that her mother was letting everyone but him see his child.  Of course as in all disputes the fighting continued, Samaan wanted to call the child one thing and Fay wanted to call her something else so when with her mother the child was called Madeline but with her father she was called Layla.  The fighting never stopped. 

A little over a week ago 2-year-old Madeline Samaan-Fay of Sacramento, California went missing apparently abducted by her father, Mourad “Moni” Samaan age 49.  Her mother, Marcia Fay,  had recently been granted full custody of the little girl. Fay reported her daughter missing when Samaan failed to return her but because of rules regarding parental abductions the FBI did not issue an Amber Alert until Friday, just two days before Samaan and Madeline were found.   Samaan and Madeline were last seen alive at a grocery store in Sacramento.  The next time they would be seen, both would be deceased in Samaan’s Toyota 4-Runner in a rural area near Placerville, California.  According to reports Samaan died from a gunshot wound and while Madeline had gunshot wounds authorities are investigating to see if it was possible carbon monoxide poisoning.

Samaan’s father has spoken with reporters and claims that the custody battle over Madeline was what pushed his son over the edge.  Apparently the custody battle began even before Madeline’s birth.  Apparently the couple separated before Madeline’s birth and Mourad had to learn of his child’s birth from his in-laws.  Samaan’s father also goes on to say that marriage and family disputes do not belong in the court system. 

Another report goes on to say that Samaan did not understand that he wasn’t losing his right to see his daughter, just the joint custody.  In other words he would have had visitation with her still but custody would have fully rested on her mother. 

Unfortunately whatever the issue may be here (reports are still flooding in) a 2-year-old princess has lost her life.  No reports could be found from them mother’s side of this story, only from Samaan’s family who all believe that he was pushed to do this.  While most parents can certainly sympathize with Samaan’s feelings of despair upon losing custody of his daughter, we all know that murder/suicide isn’t the answer.  Perhaps we will learn more from the mother that will shed some light on this very sad case.

RIP Madeline.

I see warning labels on products and think, “how fucking sad that someone had to have tried this for them to put this warning here.”  My blow-dryer has a tag on the cord that tells you not to use it in the shower.  Who in the fuck is going to blow-dry their hair while taking a shower?  My Iron has a warning that says not to iron clothes on you body.  DUH!!  Hell, I’ve even seen super hero costumes at Halloween time that have warnings that say that the costume will not make you fly!  Again, this implies that someone actually TRIED to fucking fly because they were wearing a damn Superman costume.  So how come manufacturers of microwaves haven’t put a warning against microwaving babies on their products?  I mean, especially after China Arnold….   Not that a warning would have stopped 29-year-old Ka Yang from pulling a China Arnold, but you can see where there is some use for a warning label.  

On March 17th, paramedics were called to a home where they found a severely burned infant.  The infant was 6-month-old Mirabelle Thao-Lo, Yangs daughter.  She was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Yang claimed that she blacked out after she suffered a seizure while holding her daughter as she sat at her computer.  When she woke up, she was on the floor and her daughter was injured.  *cough* bullshit *cough* It seems that police weren’t buying this “account” of the events with all of Yang’s inconsistencies.  That’s when she changed her tune.  Still using the seizure story, she began claiming that she might also have a split personality. 

Police believed that little Mirabelle had extensive thermal burns as a result of being put into a microwave.  At least her injuries were consistent with other cases involving children being placed in microwaves (which is where the warning label comes in handy). 

Yang is being held without bail at Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of murder and assault resulting in the death of a child under 8.  I can already smell the bat shit crazy defense coming. 

Yang’s remaining 3 children are all living with relatives. 

Back to my warning label theory:  In 1999, Elizabeth Renee Otte put her 1-month-old son in a microwave, killing him.  In 2005, China Arnold murdered her 28-day-old daughter, Paris Talley, in a microwave.  In 2008, Joshua Mauldin  put his 2-month-old daughter in a hotel microwave because the Devil told him to do it.  She actually survived the ordeal, but was left with second and third degree burns, part of her left ear had to be amputated and she required several skin grafts.  I just wonder how the warning label would read.  “May cause prison yard beat down if you use to cook your baby”  – I know…. Wishful thinking. 

Rest in peace, Mirabelle.  I hope with all of my heart that you didn’t suffer.
