Starvation and filth in Adelaide

Officials describe neglect case as one of the worst

Parents accused of starving child appear in court

Couple charged over failing to feed son

Thanks go to KH for the tip on this one, and to Trench for passing it on to me. I have been a bit busy with starting my Master’s degree, so this makes a suitable change of pace.

A couple from Adelaide, South Australia (23 and 27) have been charged with child neglect after their 4 year old son was found to be weighing only 8kg (17.6 pounds). The house was also a complete mess, with piles of used nappies and rubbish everywhere. The stench of the house could be smelled from the street, according to authorities. When the boy arrived at the local hospital, his condition was so bad that some of the medical staff who were treating him, required counselling.

Gross, nasty filth

Gross, nasty filth

Last year in March, Families SA were alerted by the family’s neighbours to concerns about the kiddo’s welfare. However when officials spotted the boy, they saw that he was fine. And then, because an NGO was involved with the family, Families SA saw no need to continue investigating the family, according to news sources. This case has prompted an internal investigation by Families SA into how it handled the case. A Child Safety expert has blamed a lack of communication leaving children vulnerable.

The breeders have been to court, where they were charged with criminal neglect and failing to provide food. The male (27) also had a charge of aggravated assault tacked on. They have been remanded in custody.

The young kiddo is now in the care of Families SA.

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.

 

Second Life players didn’t give their child a Second Chance

Second Life obsessed parents starve two-year-old child

Couple ‘living in fantasy world’ accused of starving girl

Parents ‘were so immersed in fantasy video game world where their avatars married and had jobs they let real-life daughter, 2, nearly starve to death’

Mark Knapp and Elizabeth Pester

Mark Knapp and Elizabeth Pester

This is the second story I’ve heard of parents neglecting their children in favour of Second Life. I saw a feature on Dr. Phil (back in my HSC days) on this game, with a 13 year old girl addicted to it. To me, it looks sort of like The Sims, only a bit more sophisticated. I don’t know much about the game, so I typed the term “Second Life” into urbandictionary.com (where I do all of my serious research) and got this:

“Second Life:

A game where desperate people with no lives or friends get to live out their dreams of social acceptance and sex. The vast majority of Second Life players are unattractive and socially awkward.”

Well, there you have it. Put that definition together with the mugshot and it explains a lot.

Mark Knapp (48) and his blushing bride Elizabeth Pester (33) stand accused of neglecting their 2 year old daughter in favour of looking after their Second Life avatars. The couple were charged with child neglect and abuse after it was found that their daughter only weighed 5.8 kg (13 lbs). She was rushed to hospital in a severe state of malnutrition. On top of being severely underweight, she couldn’t walk or talk, and the back of her head was flat.

When the cops came around to arrest the couple, they found them playing Second Life. Mark asked the officers whether they were here because their daughter had died. NO THEY WERE NOT! They should thank their fucking lucky stars that she wasn’t dead! They were so absorbed in their crappy little game that they didn’t even know their daughter was alive or dead.

The couple were known to authorities, with their daughter being taken away in 2012 for being underweight. She was returned (wtf?) on the condition that she was to be weighed weekly to ensure that she reached a healthy weight. The weigh-ins did not happen! Big fat FAIL.

Elizabeth allegedly rescheduled her daughter’s appointments and requested that the appointments be scheduled for the afternoon, citing that she worked as a DJ and needed her sleep in the mornings. The DJ gig, as it turns out, belongs to her Second Life avatar, DJ Syn. The immersion was that deep, she thought her avatar was actually her. She and Mark also had a virtual wedding and she shared pictures of it on her Facebook, saying

” THE MOST AMAZING NIGHT A BRIDE COULD HAVE I WONT TRADE IT FOR THE WORLD!!!”

The silliness of this would be so funny, if a kid wasn’t near death due to the idiocy of her breeders. She actually tried to pass off Second Life as her own life?? Her real life must be so boring.

Here’s a picture of their avatars (for a comparison to their actual mugshots). The top one is from their fake wedding:

Alter-egos: In the online virtual world Second Life, Pester's blonde avatar (left) worked as a DJ, and the couple had a wedding

You’re kidding yourselves if you think you actually look like that.

DJ

Pester’s fake job as DJ Syn

The ghastly gamers are being held in Tulsa county jail on US$50, 000 each. And no, that’s not in Simoleons. Their little girl is still in a critical condition, trying to regain her real life.

Imagine how good this family could be living if Mark and Elizabeth put in as much effort into their real life as they did building up their Second Life avatars?

PS: If you get the chance, look up Second Life trolling videos on YouTube. These players go to pieces over nothing!

SA sperm flinger goes to jail after neglecting his diabetic daughter to death

SA dad jailed over fatal neglect

Parents deny killing teenage daughter

Richard Edward (50), a South Australian sperm slinger, has been jailed for allowing his 14 year old diabetic daughter Dawn to die. Her incubator Debra Marlene Edward (54) has avoided jail.

It is alleged that Dawn weighed only 28 kg when she died in August 2009. On top of having Type 1 diabetes, she was apparently physically disabled, which would explain why she could not get to food or a doctor on her own. Her cause of death was hyperglycemia and dehydration.

According to the judge presiding over the case, Dawn was very ill in the week before she died. Yet her breeders did nothing to help her.

Not that this has anything to do with the case, but the breeders were intellectually disabled, as well as their five children including Dawn. The sperm slinger was controlling and domineering, while the incubator was apathetic, choosing to spend time in her room watching TV.  He made all the decisions, while the incubator regretted not standing up to her husband enough. Umm, how hard can it be to stand up to someone with a maximum IQ of 70?

The sperm slinger Richard was charged with mere manslaughter and was sentenced to a pitiful 4 years and six months, with a non parole period of 3 years and 7 months. The useless incubator Debra was placed on a 3 year good behaviour bond, after suspending a 3 year jail period.

These people should never have been allowed to breed. There must have been signs that they could not live independently or look after one child, let alone 5. Not to mention that whatever disability they had, it was obviously genetic for all five of their kids to be disabled too.

RIP Dawn.

The tragic life and death of Daniel Pelka: Yet another child failed by UK social services

(Written by Cobalt Rose)

Everyone to blame but no one punished: Teachers, doctors, the police and social workers escape justice after missing 27 chances to save tragic Daniel Pelka:

The following is yet another tragic, tragic story of a child who was horrifically failed by UK social services. Daniel Pelka isn’t the first, and I’m sure he will not be the last.

On March 3rd last year, Magdelena Luczak and her boyfriend, Mariusz Krezolek, called 999 to report that Daniel Pelka, Magdelena’s four-year old son, was unresponsive. Paramedics arrived at the home in Birmingham to find the little boy cold to the touch. Unfortunately, Daniel was pronounced dead in hospital. Cause of death? ‘Severe’ blunt force trauma to the head. He weighed just 20 pounds. It would later be revealed that Daniel was subjected to a regime of ‘incomprehensible cruelty’ at the hands of his mother and her boyfriend. He was beaten, starved and tortured for months before his death.

The mattress Daniel was forced to sleep on.

The mattress Daniel was forced to sleep on.

Police were called to the home 27 times due to violent, drunken rows erupting between Magadelena and Mariusz, yet nobody ever thought to look at little Daniel, who was locked in a room, forced to sleep on a filthy, soiled mattress. He was viciously beaten, force-fed salt until he vomited, had his head held under water until he passed out and was starved to the point where he was stealing and eating food from the garbage at school. In 2011, Daniel suffered a broken arm. Mariusz claimed that it happened whilst him and Daniel were playing hide and seek…. Yeah. Even though Daniel’s mother failed to turn up for a follow-up appointment for Daniel’s broken arm, no alarms were raised. In February of 2012, Daniel’s doctor reported that he was ‘severely underweight’. What did he determine was causing this weight loss? Worms. Yep, worms. Not abuse. Not surprisingly, Daniel was already known to social services. He had poor school attendance, and Daniel’s mother often failed to turn up for paediatric appointments, yet again, no action was taken.

Daniel’s school is, in my opinion, are also partly to blame for this tragedy. Teachers report that Daniel ‘looked like a concentration camp victim’, ‘an old man with sunken eyes’ and was ‘wasting away’. He had black eyes, red marks on his neck and bruising all over his body. He was often spotted eating out of the garbage. He was very timid and quiet. My God, it breaks my heart to hear how much this little boy suffered in his short life. Yet did these teachers pull their finger out and actually report any concerns, you know, like anybody with any shred of sense and morally decency would? Of course they didn’t. They instead put Daniel’s emaciated state down to a ‘medical condition’ a lie which was fed to them by Daniel’s egg donor. Unfortunately, it would be this terrible attitude, simply standing by and believing every single lie that they were given by two sick pieces of monstrous scum, that led to a little boy’s tragic and entirely preventable death.

Computerised images of some of Daniel’s injuries

During their trial last month, like typical cowardly child abusers, Magdelena Luczak and Mariusz Krezolek denied that they had ever harmed Daniel, and when that didn’t work they blamed each other. However, there was clear evidence that they had both brutally abused the little boy. In a text sent to Mariusz just a few days before Daniel died, Magdelena said (and these are the exact words) – “Well now he’s temporarily unconscious because I nearly drowned him. He’s already in bed covered with the duvet and asleep and I am having some quiet time.” And later; “I won’t be hitting him but if I hear him when he later wakes up then he’s going back to the bathtub. I didn’t let the water out.” And; “We deal with Rudy [Daniel] after school. He won’t see grub at all.” I feel sick. That is his MOTHER. What utter, utter scum. The day before Daniel died, Luczak and/or Krezolek brutally beat him, leaving him with fatal brain trauma. They would delay calling 999, thinking that he ‘would be ok in the morning’ and there was ‘no need’ to get him medical attention.

Later during the trial, Krezolek admitted that he had force-fed Daniel salt until he was sick and had ‘physically disciplined’ Daniel, but again stated that it was Luczak who made him, and she was the primary abuser. The court decided that they were both equally responsible, finding them both guilty of murder. They were both given life, and must serve at least 30 years before being eligible for parole. I personally think they should rot, first in jail and then in the very depths of fiery Hell. They are absolutely vile and rotten to the core. I feel like crying, when I read of the horrors this little boy was subjected to in his short, tragic life. A ‘serious case review’ was conducted this week to see just HOW and WHY social services failed Daniel so terribly, and recommendations were made, and the social workers involved said that ‘lessons had been learned’, but it’s stuff that we have heard over and over again. Ever single time a child like Daniel dies in such a horrific way (Baby P, Khyra Ishaq, Victoria Climbie….) they all parrot out the same apologies and promises, and yet children still die. Daniel wasn’t the first, and he won’t be the last. Much as we would like to think that nobody would ever harm a child, there are those who do, and it seems that those responsible for protecting vulnerable children are doing very little to stop it.

Philly Breeders starve 3-year-old girl to death

Rivera and Ramirez

Rivera and Ramirez

Parents charged with murder in starvation death of 3-year-old girl:

Ah Philadelphia, how I do not miss your barbarism towards your fellow-man. City of brotherly love my ass.

This time the participants are 30-year-old Carlos Rivera and 27-year-old Carmen Ramirez. They’ve been accused of allegedly starving Nathalyz Rivera, their 3-year-old daughter, to death. When Rivera found little Nathalyz unconscious instead of calling 911 he called Ramirez who was at a male friend’s house. Ramirez and the male friend came over and THEN took Nathalyz to the hospital.

The M.E. ruled her death homicide by starvation and said that she showed obvious signs of abuse. The Captain of Philadelphia’s homicide unit said it was one of the worst cases of abuse that he’s seen. When a Captain of the Philadelphia homicide unit says something is the worst he’s ever seen you can take his word for it because Philly is never short on atrocities. Police also say that Ramirez claimed that Nathalyz was a special needs child which makes me wonder if they were just starving her or the other four kids as well.

Police are still investigating and asking the public for tips…

As this investigation continues, anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police at 215-686-TIPS (8477), text a tip to PPD TIP (773847) or through PhillyPolice.com.

Thanks to Sarah for the tip.

Queensland twins “intentionally” malnourished to death by breeders

Queensland couple ‘intended to kill toddlers’

Brisbane parents plead not guilty to murder after court told twin babies starved to death

A Brisbane couple stand accused of underfeeding their twin toddlers, keeping them in a dingy back room and not letting anyone see them until their 11 year old sister found their emaciated remains.

The bad breeders pleaded not guilty to murder in Brisbane’s Supreme Court on Wednesday. They pleaded guilty to manslaughter, but the Crown prosecutor refused to accept it.

The court was told that the 18 month old twins’ bodies were found by their 11 year old sister, together in the same cot, in a dingy bedroom of the family’s home in 2008. What a horrible thing for these murderous maggots to put their children through! Starving to death and being unable to get food, and then the poor girl finding the gruesome remains of her brother and sister – knowing full well that her so-called “parents” killed them. When the babies were found, they were so emaciated that they weighed as much a 3 or 4-month old baby when they were 18 months old!

The court heard that the direct cause of the twins’ death was malnutrition as a result of being underfed for a period of more than a month. They had been fed nothing but baby formula for a number of months, and then feedings became more and more sporadic until they died. There was suggestion that the toddlers had been fed but just not enough, meaning that the formula could have been watered down or that feedings were spaced too far apart.

The jury heard evidence that suggested the family were happy right up until they moved to a rental property in Sunnybank Hills in 2007.  The breeders became withdrawn from extended family and friends in early 2008, which was the last time anyone saw the twins alive. There was an apparent breakdown in the de-facto couple’s relationship, with the female breeder spending long hours in front of the computer and the male breeder hanging out in bars. The female was heard to have said that she wished she’d given the twins away multiple times. The couple had three other children apart from the twins and their 11 year old sister.

The prosecutor added that the female had failed to provide her babies with sufficient nutrition and the male had refused to do anything about it. The maliciousness of their actions was further amplified by the fact that they pleaded for manslaughter rather than murder, implying that they didn’t think their actions were wrong.

The trial is expected to run for 3 weeks, with the jury expected to hear from up to 103 witnesses, including the couple’s other children, extended family, neighbours and others who were in contact with the family. None of the extended family had bothered to call DOCS, even though they knew things weren’t right in that household. They should be rotting in a jail cell with the murderous breeders.

Fuck, fuck, FUCK!! How do you just shut that bit out of your brain, the one that tells you “It’s wrong to not feed your babies just because your relationship isn’t great”? How did they not hear the babies’ screams of hunger? The bitch prevented other family members from going into that bedroom. Imagine the other kids hearing their baby siblings crying for food and the breeders telling them to ignore them. This is so so so sad, I’m just speechless and heartbroken for those twins and their siblings.

RIP little ones, together in life and together in heaven.

Baby machine accused of starving 4 year old daughter

Mother of nine accused of starving 4-year-old daughter who weighted just 18 pounds

Held: Mother-of-nine Antonia Benitez has been accused of starving her 4-Year-old daughter

Antonia Benitez

 

Antonia Benitez (35) of Santa Ana, CA, allegedly starved her 4 year old daughter so badly that she only weighed 18 pounds (8.16 kg). Then she dumped her at a hospital and drove off. Doctors reported the girl’s malnourishment to Social Services and the baby machine was picked up by the 5.0. The little girl also had an infected wound on her leg that was going untreated.

Baby machine? What does that refer to? You see, Ms. Benitez has 9 children and is raising them all by herself. Perhaps she had that many children, she forgot to feed the 4 year old. This probably seems likely, since baby machine took the little girl to hospital before, in 2007, for being underweight. But somehow, this managed to escape the attention of the police.

Baby factory has had three felony child abuse charges filed against her. If she is convicted, she could face a maximum term of 14 years in prison. Her children are now in the care of Social Services and family members.

Here’s a pro-tip: Shut your fucking legs. You don’t have to have a baby every time you have sex. You also don’t have to have a baby with every man that you sleep with. Contraception is widely available and cheap. Don’t have more children than what you can look after. If you don’t want a tribe of children, wrap it up or pop The Pill.

Here’s an amusing little rhyme: There was an old woman who lived in a shoe; She had so many children, her c*** fell off.

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

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

22261437_BG1

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.

Another “mother” lies down on the job…

Mum slept while children died, inquest told

WA mum Miranda Hebble ‘not depressed’ when boys died – partner

Babies died in shower, inquest hears

290413genhebble03_18nrtg8-18nrtgg

Miranda Hebble took a little nap…and her babies paid for it with their lives!

An inquest is being held into the deaths of two little babies who were left in the shower as their 22 year old birth vessel Miranda Hebble slept. The WA coroner is investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Lochlan James Stevens (2) and Malachi Isaac Stevens (10 months) who died in November 2008.

The story so far…little Lochlan had gotten into his nappy and smeared crap all over himself, the wall, and his baby brother’s cot. I guess you could say he was bored shitless (badum-tish). The next day (!) Miranda decided to put both of them in the shower, a little rub-a-dub-dub should get the doo-doo off. She told the inquest that she went back into her bedroom (while the babies were still under the shower with the door closed!), saw “white speckly things” and passed out or fell asleep. 10 hours later, she awoke to find the bathroom full of steam, the shower full of water and her babies floating in the water. They were stone cold dead.

An autopsy has not been able to determine exactly how the boys died, but the coroner says that they could not confirm nor rule out drowning as a cause. Lochlan was found in a sleeping position, with blood coming from his mouth, a mark on his stomach and a scratch to the forehead. Malachi was floating in the water. The coroner has indicated that baby Malachi probably did drown, while Lochlan may have suffered from a combination of hunger, exhaustion, and possibly hypothermia from the water. The shower plughole had become clogged because the contents of the vanity unit were scattered everywhere (presumably by the boys). So not only did their birth vessel leave them unsupervised in the bathroom, letting them play with potentially dangerous items such as razors, but also wasn’t taking care of Lochlan properly, letting him go hungry and not ensuring he slept enough. Neglectful c***.

The boys’ dad, Christopher Stevens, also testified at the inquest. He told the court about an earlier incident in February 2008, where Miranda had left baby Malachi in the car while returning a DVD. Her reasoning behind this was that she was tired and that she was afraid that she would drop him. If you’re too tired to hold a baby, you probably shouldn’t be driving either! Police pulled Malachi from car, hot, sweaty and screaming. Christopher was working in the mines on a fly-in-fly-out basis, and was away at the time of the babies’ deaths. He further added that Miranda was anemic and had problems with sleeping patterns. Instead of taking naps with the children, she would watch cartoons, and was known to sleep through her babies’ crying or screaming. This would explain why Lochlan was hungry and exhausted: his birth vessel would sleep instead of feeding him and the elevated stress levels from him screaming in hunger (plus being hungry)  would have stopped him from sleeping.

Christopher said of his former partner that she was a quiet and antisocial person who kept to herself. He didn’t think she was depressed, and she had no drugs or alcohol in her system when police questioned her. The inquest will examine why she slept for 10 hours after “passing out”. The counsel assisting the coroner said that Miranda didn’t have a history of mental illness or drug and alcohol abuse. She was a quiet person who was struggling with sleep because of Malachi’s restlessness. The babies’ paternal grandfather testified that he thought that Miranda was a good mother but was probably not emotionally mature enough to handle two children. He further added that she and Christopher had gone through a rough patch because Miranda had not been doing any housekeeping while Christopher was away.

The inquest is continuing.

Before anyone screams “You don’t know her!” or “It’s hard taking care of two kids by yourself”, riddle me this: if Miranda knew she had health issues that were preventing her from looking after her children correctly, why the fuck did she not ask for help? FIFO mine workers make a fuckload of money, surely she could have hired a nanny to help out? Ask the grandparents to care for them until she got her health issues under control?  They were little babies, it wasn’t like they couldn’t be uprooted from their school to go live with their grandparents for a while. But no. She was being stupid and selfish by trying to go it alone, even though she knew full well she couldn’t do it. And who the fuck puts babies in the shower?! And then LEAVES? Stupid tw*t c***. I really feel for the babies’ Dad. Imagine coming home from a 4 week (or longer) stint away from your family, only to find that the woman you trusted to care for your children is incompetent and stupid, and that her idiocy has killed your babies. Dad split up from the incompetent tw*t and has now found love in a new relationship. Hopefully this new woman can help him heal from the devastation of losing his babies to a stupid and thoughtless she-devil.
