Everybody Fails…Second verse, same as the first

Body of boy who’d been dead for days found in home
Pennsylvania mom: I didn’t know son had died until the smell set in
Homicide charges for Pennsylvania parents of son found decomposing in home
Court records detail changing stories provided by Jarrod Tutko Jr.’s mother

Oh, God… That’s a prayer, a plea, and the sound my heart makes when I think of this poor child, who died alone, hungry, and probably terrified. Sorry, friends, but I am not going to post any pictures of the perpetrators in this sad tale, because I cannot stand to look at their faces myself. There are plenty of pics in the linked stories, and if that’s not enough for you, just Google Tutko, and you will be amply rewarded with a plethora of pictures of the two animals who mercilessly killed one child, and almost killed another. I usually try to lighten up these stories in order to make them easier to read, but I can’t do that this time. My heart is too broken. Forgive me, but I just can’t think of any glib remarks that would make this situation easier to bear.

I started to write this a few weeks ago, when the story first hit the news, but decided to hold off because (child abuse) charges had not been made yet, and I was desperately hoping that there was a reasonable explanation for the horrors brought forth in the news concerning this case. I knew it was unlikely, but still, I hoped. Alas, I was sadly disappointed.

Little Jarrod Tutko, Jr. was found in his “bedroom”(actually, some articles say he was found in a bathroom), dead, several days after he died. His mother claimed that she did not realize he was dead until the smell of decomposition set in. Apparently, there were six children living in the home, at least two of whom were disabled, and all of whom were living in filth and misery. I am going to attempt to combine the linked articles into some sort of cohesive timeline, but please forgive me if I fail – I am still crying about the newest details that have emerged.

Jarrod’s body was found on the bathroom floor on August 1, 2014. The authorities have said that he was dead for several days before his body was recovered. The mother claimed (at the time) not to have seen her son in “years”. More on that later. The sperm donor, Jarrod Tutko, Sr., was supposedly the “sole caretaker” of his 9-year-old son, and the egg donor, Kimberly Tutko, was responsible for another child of theirs, a 10-year-old girl. She claimed that all of her time was spent caring for the girl, and she never saw her son, because she didn’t want to risk exposing the other children to any germs Jarrod Jr might have had, or some such BS. The stories vary, depending on which article you read. The risk of contamination was a valid concern, it seems, because little Jarrod’s room was covered in feces, swarming with flies, and had only a feces covered blanket and stuffed animal, and a TV in it. The TV was tuned to the Disney channel. I think I need to puke again. WHO, among the sane and sensible, thinks it is OK to treat a child this way?

Jarrod Jr. had a genetic condition called Fragile X Syndrome. This is a condition that can cause behavioral issues in children, and has autistic-like symptoms. It is also frequently accompanied by some degree of mental retardation. This child likely spent his short life confused and lonely, and wondering why he was treated like an animal. At this point, however, I find myself hoping that his mental impairment was so bad that he didn’t understand the abuse – and couldn’t suffer from the emotional trauma. I know, I’m deluding myself.

When Jarrod Jr. was found, he weighed only seventeen pounds. Let that sink in for a minute…a nine-year-old who weighs only seventeen pounds. Just for comparison, the average weight for a newborn is six pounds. A baby will typically triple its birth weight in the first year. That would be 18 pounds. This precious 9-year-old boy died weighing less than the average 1-year-old. In a room covered in human waste. With no one who would love him, or take care of him. I despise those people. I really do.

In addition to Jarrod Jr., there was a 10 year old girl who was “near death” when the authorities came in for the investigation. All five of the remaining children have been removed from the birth organisms, and both of the abusers are currently residents of the Grey bar motel. I hope they rot there.

As I mentioned earlier, when the story first broke, the FBO claimed not to have seen her son in years, and claimed not to know how deplorable his living conditions were. First, how can any mother live in the same house with a child and simply NOT see him for years? I couldn’t do it. Even when my children are visiting relatives during the summer, I make sure I see them at least once a week. When they go to camp, I make it a point to go and have a meal with them a couple of times a week. I just can’t stand to NOT see them. And this slag lived in the same house with her boy and NEVER saw him? LIAR, LIAR! (I’d like to set her hair on fire!) Well, it turns out, that was a lie she concocted to try to keep herself out of trouble. According to the latest reports, she was upstairs and visiting with her son just a few short weeks before his death. She said he was crying on the bathroom floor “because he didn’t like the sound of running water.” There goes my wish that he was unaware of his surroundings. He was crying on the bathroom floor. My soul weeps for this child.

I know this story is running long, and I apologize, but I simply couldn’t think what to include, and what to omit. There is so much wrong with this situation. The local child protective services were aware of this family, yet the children were still neglected, one to the point of death, and another almost dead. The other four children were apparently living on the lower floor of the home, and in somewhat better circumstances, although as I understand it the entire house was in need of some serious cleaning. I could not find the ages of the other four children specifically mentioned, but one article did say they ranged from 3 to 14 years old. I’d like to know HOW, if the two parents each had a full time job taking care of severely disabled kids, HOW in the name of Satan’s undershorts did they FIND TIME TO MAKE MORE BABIES? They should have spent that time feeding the kids they already had.

The Slunt is has been charged with criminal homicide and endangering the welfare of children, and the walking penis is charged with the same thing, plus concealing the death of a child and abuse of a corpse. They are both being held without bail. At least the judge in this case is doing something right. I hope they are sentenced to the rest of their natural lives in a septic tank located in a high traffic area, with no food. I’m not sure if I want them to starve to death first or die of the inevitable fumes from the feces flushed into their prison. I can’t write any more right now – perhaps I’ll come back later to update the story. Maybe not.

Sorry, Trench. I know this one sucks, but I just couldn’t get my head straight. If you want to take it down, or fix it, I’ll understand completely.

“I have five uncontrollable kids…”

Police: Iowa man locked 5 kids in bedroom all day
UPDATE: Police say Westgate child abuser used secret door

I wasn’t sure I would be able to post another story today. After having posted the one about little Peyton earlier, my eyes are still red from weeping about that poor child. However, I decided that the sheer volume of asininity involved in this situation warranted immediate attention.
Sooooo…..this is a two-fer….kinda. Same people involved, same children, but different charges on different days – but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me begin at the beginning.


The two outstanding individuals who grace the page just above are crack snacker Joshua Steinbronn, 28, and his main snatch (or is that snack? Oh well, apply the descriptor any way you like), Jonya Smith, 29. It seems that these two stellar parents (and I use that term loosely) thought it would be more fun to have pets than kids, so they decided to keep all five kids locked in a single room for hours (sometimes a full day), with no food, water, or access to a bathroom. Oh, wait, I have to add “allegedly” here. The kids were “allegedly” locked up like animals. According to the children themselves. But who’s keeping score, right?

Let’s back up a little more. This story has me so wound up that I can’t decide which order to share the information. Jonya is the mother of five children between the ages of 3 and 9, whose names are not available – presumably to protect their identities since they are all minors. Let that sink in for a minute. Five children over a seven year period. Not unheard of, but dayum, she was a busy little thing, wasn’t she? Joshua is NOT the babydaddy. For any of them. Neither of the linked articles mention the father(s?) of the children, so I have to wonder if she knows herself. But, that’s just speculation on my part.

Anyway, to get back to the story. On Friday, Sept. 19, 2014, deputies responded to a ‘domestic disturbance’ at a Westgate, Iowa home. The article doesn’t say what kind of home, but I am leaning toward the “mobile” type – you’ll understand why a little further along. Upon arrival, LE noticed ‘several’ children yelling out of a window, and crying. They told officers that they had been locked in the bedroom by their birth organism’s current penis du jour. Ho hum. This one is already sounding familiar, huh? ‘Not-the-daddy’ abusing plaything’s kids. The children went on to describe multiple incidents of confinement, and added that they were given no food, water or access to a bathroom for up to 24 hours. They were given cups to pee in, and sometimes had to use the floor as a toilet. Clothing and baby diapers were also conveniently provided for their waste removal needs. How thoughtful. Or gross, depending on how you want to look at it. One of the children had injured her leg trying to escape at some point. I would also surmise that the children were likely not paragons of hygiene, either – if they were not afforded a toilet or basic food, I sincerely doubt the two adult vermin in the home bothered to let them bathe often. I could be wrong – but I doubt it.

Joshua has been charged with five counts each of false imprisonment and child endangerment, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia (LE found a glass tube and scale that both tested positive for meth). According to the first article, he was released on a $5,000.00 unsecured bond, and ordered to stay away from the children.

Meanwhile, bio-slag was busy telling police that they had the story wrong. Her man would never abuse her children. They were making things up. And blah, blah, blah. Then she said that she and boy-toy locked the kids in their rooms as punishment for disobedience. But never, I swear, NEVER for anywhere near 24 hours. Poor thing! Her horrible kids are lying about her and the BF! What rotten kids! Yeah, right. I’m not buying that load of manure. Sorry, I’m not a farmer, and don’t need the fertilizer right now. Try calling the FFA, wench, THEY might be in need of some BS for their fields. The walking uterus went on to say that Jerk-ua, was not a bad man, and that she had five uncontrollable kids who needed his brand of discipline. Not one, not two, not three, not four….but ALL five of her kids were uncontrollable. Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with the way they have been raised? Or abused. Take your pick. Perhaps if she had had a parenting class or two, her kids wouldn’t be so ‘uncontrollable’. But I digress. There is much more to this part of the story, but you can read about it tin the first link – I need to move along.

This brings us to the “two” in Two-fer. The scintillating snapshot above depicts two other people who were living in the ‘home’ at the time of the incident. Both of them were also arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, at the time of Jerk-ua’s arrest. Apparently the mother was spared at that time, AND allowed to retain custody of her children. I can not fathom why. Regardless, within a few days she, too would be behind bars. Why, you ask? Because she is an idiot. Allegedly. One of the idiotic comments she made to authorities when the Jerk was first arrested was that she would continue to discipline her children as she sees fit. Ummm…not so much, I guess. Not if you’re in jail.

It seems that Little Miss Thang, otherwise known as the babymama, aided Jerk-ua in disregarding that protective order mentioned above. Apparently there is a ‘secret door’ under the house that opens into a closet, by which the Jerk has been having conjugal visits with mommy dearest. (This is why I mentioned earlier that I suspected that their home was a ‘mobile’ home. Usually actual houses are not set up such that you can make an entrance to a closet from under the house.) Oops! Somebody reported them, and they are now both residents of the grey bar motel. They have both been arrested – he for violation of a protective order, and she for A&A, child endangerment, and driving on a suspended license. They should also charge her with criminal stupidity and meanness, IMHO. But I don’t think those things are crimes at this point – just character flaws. No word on bonds for either of them, but thankfully, the children have been removed and placed with others. Others who will feed them, and allow them bathroom privileges. Oh, and not lock them up. That’s pretty important, too.

“I dont UNDERSTAAAAAAND…..”

Parents: Mom didn’t understand abandoning baby
Another trashy mom...of a sort

Alicia Marie Englert, a 23-year old mother in Kearns, Utah, has been arrested for allegedly dumping her 2-day-old infant in a trash can. I question the need to use the term ‘allegedly’ here, because it seems she has confessed to the act, and given her reasons – she “hoped the newborn girl would die in the trash and solve her problems”. Ummmm…problems? What problems would those be? An overdose of inhumanity? Lack of common sense? A complete absence of compassion? Those ARE some pretty serious problems, but, unfortunately, I don’t think dumping your baby in the nearest trash receptacle is the way to solve them. Unless by solve them, you mean “make them worse”.

Apparently, she hid her pregnancy from her parents (whom the article indicates she was living with), and her parents have indicated that Alicia “had a learning disability and didn’t understand her actions.” Sorry, I’m gonna call BS on that. By her own admission, the baby was a “problem” that she wanted to “solve” and she hoped it would die in the trash. Those comments tell me that she not only understood the concept of death, but she knew that placing the baby in the trash could cause the death of her daughter. Premeditation. I don’t care how low your IQ is, if you can conceal a pregnancy, and devise a plan for getting rid of the baby after it’s born, you are smart enough to know better. For more comments from the parents and neighbors, check out the link above.

The baby was found by a neighbor who mistook the baby’s cries for those of a kitten, and went to fish the kitty out of the trash can. I’ll bet she was really surprised when the ‘kitten’ turned out to be a hairless, tailless baby girl. According to reports, the baby had not been fed or given any medical care before being placed in the can. Is anyone surprised? Yeah, neither am I. So the baby was born, left to go hungry for two days, and then unceremoniously dumped in a neighbor’s waste bin. She was airlifted to a hospital where she is currently in critical condition, and on a ventilator. I hope the poor baby improves, and is placed with someone who will lavish her with all of the love she deserves.

Back to the parents of this oxygen wasting baby factory….Both of them said she was – I’ll be nice here – mentally challenged. BOTH parents. They’re either lying, or they were not doing THEIR jobs in the parenting department either. She still lives at home, so perhaps she is not able to manage her own affairs. If that is the case however, then how in the name of Satan’s skivvies did she end up pregnant? And the parents don’t know who the father is? What?!?! do they just allow their mentally disabled daughter to run around with all of the neighborhood boys, sans supervision? If that is the case, then a case could be made against them for neglect, as well.

There are so many inconsistencies with this one that I have a feeling someone is going to be changing their tune, and soon. Alicia has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, and is currently a resident of the Chateau Grey Bar, AKA the Salt Lake County Jail. I hope she stays there for a good long time. Without food, and preferably in a trash can. A very SMALL trash can.

As a final aside, Utah has a safe haven law. If she really wanted to get rid of the “problem”, she could have taken the baby to the nearest hospital, and no one at her home would have ever been the wiser.

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.

Justice for Quinten Facebook page

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

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.
