Hannah Overton’s conviction overturned

Hannah Overton

Hannah Overton

In a case, in my opinion, where emotion has overruled sense Hannah Overton has had her murder conviction overturned. For those of you who may be new to the site can catch upon her story here. The tl;dr version is she was convicted and sentenced to life in the murder of her 4-year-old foster child Andrew Burd who died from sodium poisoning. A ‘Free Hannah’ movement sprung up from the media coverage and the fact that she attended a fundamentalist Christian church. As I’ve said in the past, the excuses that the Free Hannah movement gave that supposedly showed she was innocent sounded like a 4-year-old trying to explain who broke the lamp. As far as I’m concerned the evidence clearly showed that she was responsible for the death of Andrew Burd.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals overturned her conviction on the grounds of ineffective counsel which her former lawyer denies. Prosecutors gave not yet determined whether or not they’re going to retry her. I can almost see why they might not. We are not a society prone to logic anymore, if we ever were. Instead emotion and outrage rules the day. That’s how the media operates these days. To get ratings or pageviews they resort to invoking an emotional response from their audience rather than reporting the facts. The media circus that has revolved around Hannah Overton paints a picture of a falsely accused woman while in my opinion the evidence says otherwise.

So more than likely a child killer will go free in the name sentimentality while Andrew Burd will receive no justice.

Car Surfing Should NOT be a Parent-Sponsored Activity

Police: Drunk mom drove with 6 kids on top of her car

Texas mom busted after driving home drunk with six kids on car’s roof, trunk: cops
Texas girl, 12, dies from head injuries after woman made her ride on car roof because of wet swimsuit

Why is she SMILING? She just killed a child!

Let me introduce you to Kisha Young, 39, of Crowley, Texas. She is the smiley-faced slag in the above picture. She is also an idiot, and (allegedly) a murderer. I have to add that “allegedly” until she is found guilty in a court of law, even though the facts of the case speak for themselves.

So….allegedly, Kisha and another mother decided this past June 17 to allow their six children to spend a day at the local community pool. During this time, Kisha and the other mother (whose name, for some strange reason, is not being mentioned in the articles) decided that while the kids were away, the moms should play. So, they got their drink on.

Fast forward a few hours now, and the kids are ready to come home, so the ‘moms’ drive to the pool to retrieve them. Apparently, Kisha and cohort had had a little TOO much to drink (or a LOT too much, but who’s counting, right?), and thought it would be a great idea to protect the upholstery in the vehicle from damp bodies….by having the kids ride ON TOP OF THE VEHICLE. Sounds great in theory, but not so good in practice, unfortunately.

As Kisha was rounding a corner on the trip home, not one, not two, but FOUR of the six children were flung from the roof of the Malibu. All of the children were taken to the hospital, where one later died. Octavia Watkins, daughter of the as-yet-unnamed passenger parent, succumbed to head injuries caused in the fall from the vehicle. According to multiple articles, all children have been removed from their respective homes, and Kisha has been charged with intoxication assault, a third degree felony. She posted a $110,000.00 bond and has been released from jail to await trial.

Now that the facts of the case have been presented, I have a few other issues to cover. Like why in blue Hades did these idiot women think it was a good idea to have their kids ride on top of a moving vehicle? Car surfing is illegal regardless of the ages of the participants, but you would think that a parent would be aware of the dangers and would not only refrain from encouraging such behavior, but would absolutely FORBID it. I know I certainly would. When I found out my adult daughter had tried this dangerous activity sometime during her college years (i.e. she was an adult) I STILL called her up and blessed her out. Yet these two stellar examples of intellect thought it would be OK to have SIX children ride on top of a Malibu. My head absolutely SPINS at the thought. And again, WHY was it a good idea? Because the kiddies’ swimsuits might damage the upholstery in the car. WHAT!?!? In what corner of the known universe is it considered acceptable to place the condition of your car above the well-being of your children?!?

Second issue: If this act had been condoned and carried out by just one adult, I might more easily have been able to pass it off as a random act of stupidity – but there were TWO consenting (and colluding) adults in this equation. TWO!!! This is no longer a random act of stupidity, folks. Someone needs to seriously consider testing the local water supply for high levels of lead or other brain destroying substances. Two people from the same area have the same short circuit between their brain and common sense, at the same time, and under the same circumstances – something’s wrong. Makes me wonder if alcohol was their only ‘happy helper’ that day.

Third issue: Kisha has been released on only a $110,000.00 bond? Really? And the charges are intoxication assault? Where are the murder charges? Where are the child endangerment charges (for the other children)? Where are the assault charges for the other three kids who fell off of the moving vehicle? Where are the attempted murder charges for those kids? You think I’m being too harsh? Not by a long shot, buddy. Driving your children around (or anyone else, for that matter) while intoxicated is attempted murder, IMHO. Putting them on the roof while you do it is even worse. This woman should have a list of charges against her as long as my arm. Or my leg. Or my front yard. I certainly hope the charges are amended (and increased).

Fourth issue: Why is the second mother (Octavia’s mother) not being named or charged in this incident? At the very least, she should be facing criminal facilitation or aiding and abetting. She made (or went along with) a stupid decision, and her child is dead. She needs to answer for that. But again, that’s just my opinion. Not worth much in the grand scheme of things, but there it is.

Oh, and one final WTF from me….WTF is that smut-eating smile on her face for? She just killed a child, and injured three others, and she is SMILING?!?!? Someone needs to smack that smile off her face. With a wiffle-ball bat. Or a brick bat. Whatever you prefer.

Bad boyfriend beats baby buries body under bridge

Joshua Markus Beard

Joshua Markus Beard

I’ve been trying to keep the language on the site cleaner than in the past but damn that’s one Frankenstein looking motherfucker. That’s 20-year-old Joshua Markus Beard of Arlington, Texas. He’s been charged in the brutal beating death of his girlfriend’s 19-month-old daughter, Tylea Moore. Beard not only allegedly struck the child and threw her on the bed so hard that she bounced out to the floor but he also stomped on her stomach so hard that the baby was vomiting green fluid. Eventually Tylea succumbed to her injuries at the hands of Markus. Rather than calling police Marks and the girl’s mother, 17-year-old Alexis Botello, allegedly buried Tylea under a bridge. They were caught not only after Beard’s aunt reported the child missing but also after the pair were identified on Wal-Mart security cam footage of them buying shovels and gloves.

I know it’s everyone’s first instinct to attack the mother in a case like this but I ask that you sheath your pitchforks for now. She has been arrested and has been charged with tampering with evidence. What we don’t know is if this was a domestic abuse issue or not. I mean if he was willing to violently kill her child like that what would he be willing to do to her. For all we know there could have been domestic violence that had never been reported. We all know that not every incident of domestic violence gets reported to police unfortunately.

Again though, I feel the need to address future or possible abusers like this. The best way to make sure that police catch you and send you to jail is to kill a child. You will not get away with it. You are not smarter than the police. They will use every method at their disposal to catch you and put you away for a long time. And God forbid you do something like that in a state like Texas where they execute more killers than most countries. Beard has been charged with capital murder so it’s a real possibility for him. So think about that before you raise your hand like that to a child you cowards.

If you’re a victim of domestic violence you can go to The National Domestic Violence Hotline website or call them at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

Bad girlfriend stages fake rape and claims amnesia in toddler’s murder

Melinda Lynn Muniz

Melinda Lynn Muniz

Father’s girlfriend charged in Plano toddler’s death:

This story is so fucking bizarre I have no clue on how to describe it but I’m going to try.

First to set the stage so to speak 25-year-old Melinda Lynn Muniz of Plano, Texas has been arrested for the murder of 2-year-old Grace Lillian Ford. Muniz was engaged to Grace’s father and was caring for Grace during the day. Grace’s father and Muniz were in the process of breaking up.

Apparently Muniz didn’t take the news to well as she allegedly went to a dollar store and bought duct tape and cable ties while Grace was with her. Later that day Muniz called Grace’s father to make it sound like something had happened at their home. The father then called police who found Muniz on the floor bound, gagged, and partially disrobed. They found Grace in her bedroom in a similar state but also not breathing. Grace was on life support for three days after finally succumbing to the trauma of suffocation.

Muniz told a tale of an intruder all in black who sexually assaulted her as she was losing consciousness. Muniz told police several conflicting details with some really bad acting.

“Muniz sat up at one point and fell to the floor as if she had fainted; however, [an officer] noted that Muniz’s eyelids were moving and it appeared to her that Muniz was forcing her eyes closed,” according to the affidavit.

Not only that but while Grace was in the hospital dying Muniz checked into the ER at the same hospital saying she didn’t remember the last year of her life.

Police did investigate her story but they pretty much knew who the real killer was.

Is it me or does her plan sound straight out of a bad soap opera? Who in the hell actually gets amnesia outside of soap operas, video games and Gilligan’s Island? I’m surprised she didn’t try to say that it was her evil twin on the surveillance video at the dollar store. This would almost be comical if a 2-year-old girl didn’t die in one of the most horrible ways possible.

And again we have some random idiot who thinks that she can outsmart the police, forensic investigators and trained medical personnel. You can’t. You’re not that smart. You’re one person against an army. All it takes is for one of them to see through your bullshit. You couldn’t get that weak shit past a third-grader even if you told them you were Dora The Explorer.

Since this is Texas I hope they put her in the express checkout lane. Or in true soap opera fashion maybe they should have her fall off a cliff or something.

Thanks to Amanda for the tip.

4 year old girl saves mum’s drugged arse

Girl, 4, calls for help after high on drugs mum passes out while driving pick-up truck

So NOW Alicia Pruitt is awake...just in time to realise what a useless wastoid she is.

So NOW Alicia Pruitt is awake…just in time to realise what a useless wastoid she is.

A brave 4 year old girl from Texas made the call she never should have had to make…she called 911 after her useless druggie incubator Alicia Pruitt (24) fell asleep at the wheel of her truck and ran off the road. Luckily it was on a rural road, with barely anything to hit.

Police say the little girl used Alicia’s phone to ring them and tell them where she was and what had happened. When they arrived, they found the useless stoner slumped over the wheel, truck in gear with the engine running, and her foot still on the brake. Thank fuck for small miracles.

When the pothead awoke, she was in a daze and managed to mumble to officers that she had been smoking K2 – synthetic marijuana – and had also taken a bunch of illegally obtained narcotics (i.e. stolen pain meds).

Officers lauded the intelligence and bravery of the little girl and rewarded her by placing her in the care of relatives, away from the useless stoner bitch. Pruitt has been charged with public intoxication, possession of drug paraphenalia and possession of a controlled substance. No mention of any charges of child endangerment or neglect.

Texan birth vessel tries to sell toddler on Craigslist

Huffman mom allegedly placed ad on Craigslist to find her child a new home

Stephanie Redus, Texas Mom, Put 3-Year-Old Son Up For Adoption On Craigslist, Police Say

Stephanie Redus

Stephanie Redus

Our druggie-eyebrowed broad up there with just the slightest hint of crazy, is Stephanie Redus (29) of Huffman TX. She tried to sell her 3 year old son on that notoriously dodgy website, Craigslist.

Here’s the ad that she put up:

“Hi, I’m trying to adopt out my three-year-old son. I’m not in a good place in my life and don’t feel like I can care for him properly, but I don’t know where to start. If you or know anyone who is interested in caring for him please let me know. I’m a single mom and can’t do this.

Thanks, Desperate.”

There are many, many options for this young lass to take. Not one of them involving selling her child. Call CPS. Ask family to help out. If Dad’s around, make him step up to the plate. Get counselling. With the bad reputation that Craiglist have for animal abusers, pedophiles, rapists etc. looking for their next target, I wouldn’t even sell vegetables on there! Let alone, an animal or a child.

What’s worse is that Stephanie is pregnant with no. 2. She admits she suffers from anxiety and depression but can’t take her meds because of her pregnancy. That was her responsibility to ensure that she didn’t fall pregnant in the first place. There are many options to do that. Easiest being using a condom. But accidents happen. If she cannot function without her meds and can’t use ones that are safe for pregnancy, the only option would be to end the current pregnancy. As much as some people will protest that, as much as I would be flamed for this, if she was incapable of rational thinking without her meds, she could be a real danger to her son and anyone else. A simple procedure could save a lot of heartbreak down the line.

It’s unclear to police what sort of charges will be laid, but they will charge her with advertising the placement of a child, which is a misdemeanour. The police will further investigate and possibly upgrade the charges if they find further evidence of abuse or neglect. Stephanie posted $1000 bail and will return to court May 21.

Just a question, if she’s a “single mum”, where did baby no. 2 come from? Either Dad’s had a last hurrah before jumping off the crazy train minus his son, or she’s had a one night stand or fling with someone else and gotten pregnant that way if Dad died or left before the pregnancy happened.

Deaf Parents Kill Baby for Crying. Wait, what?

Deaf Texas Parents Allegedly Kill Crying Baby:

Richardson police say 5-month-old girl was beaten to death as deaf parents tried to get her to stop crying:

Drunken Deaf Texas Couple Beat Infant to Death for Crying:

This story leaves me seriously without words. Usually, here at BB, we hear an awful lot of stories where a bad breeder kills their kid over crying because they became frustrated. I will say, with my kids, when my son had colic I found myself crying with him because I couldn’t stop his crying due to discomfort and it was at times overwhelming, but when I got to the point where I couldn’t handle it I put him in his crib and walked away so I could take a “breather”. I can admit babies’ cries can be very nerve-wracking, however I have always thought it was the dumbest effing thing a child could lose their life over. What kills me about this story is the simple fact that these parents were deaf and they could not hear the sound coming from their baby but it did not stop them from murdering their 5 month old baby girl.

According to reports the gruesome twosome featured in this story, which we will call fucktard 1 (35-year-old Hector Rene Cupich-Quinones) and fucktard 2 (37 year-old Maria Guadalupe Zuniga) for the duration, found their 5 month old girl struggling to breathe on Sunday, April 28th 2013 at 5:30 AM. They called the authorities where an officer performed CPR on the baby noticing suspicious bruises all over the infant’s body; the baby girl was then transferred to Medical City Dallas Hospital. Hospital staff confirmed the responding officer’s suspicion of child abuse stating that “she had bruises on her chest, back and both arms, also noting she had massive trauma to the back of the head” which lead to fucktard 1 and fucktard 2 being brought in for questioning.

During questioning fucktard 1 admitted to shaking the child during an argument with fucktard 2 because wait for it, the baby was crying, what…the…fuck. Fucktard 1 said that he and the missus were imbibing in alcohol and they began fighting because the baby was crying and neither moron wanted to try to console the baby so fucktard shook her to stop the crying then slammed her head on the counter 3 or more times, also admitting to punching her in the face permanently silencing her then leaving her in the care of fucktard 2 who put her to bed around 1:00 AM. Around 3:30 AM fucktard 1 found the baby unresponsive and picked another fight with fucktard 2 about who cause the injuries…Fucking seriously? Finally they called the police and the baby girl was pronounced dead about 10:00 PM.

Both fucktards are being held at the Dallas County jail. Fucktard 1 is being held on a $1 million bond and fucktard 2 is being held on a $750,000 bond. Thankfully this happened in Texas and I hope they throw the book at these fucking assholes.

Jealous Texas Twat Murders Boyfriend’s Baby

***Special thanks to Rochell for the tip and write-up***

Laura Lea Kolb

Laura Lea Kolb

Santa Fe PD: Woman kills boyfriend’s 4-year-old daughter in fit of anger after argument:

Girlfriend ‘kills partner’s four-year-old daughter in a fit of rage following late-night argument at their apartment':

Texas woman Laura Kolb ‘kills boyfriend’s daughter, 4, following argument':

Usually we hear of an abusive step-dick that robs a sweet child out of their life, but there are some seriously self-centered twat waffles out there that do this too. In this horrid tale we have step-monster of the year 36-year-old Laura Lea Kolb.

See, step-bitch was angry with 4-year-old Taylor Gene Moore’s daddy Kevin Moore and instead of acting like a normal person and going and walking it off she took out her anger on little Taylor, robbing her of her life. Apparently Laura Lea Kolb and Kevin Moore began arguing around 3 am; Kevin went downstairs and tried cooling off a bit before going back up and dealing with the slag. According to reports step-bitch came out, presumably to continue the argument, and was foiled by those deviant bastard stairs. In a huff over her inability to complete such a simple task, such as walking, this dumb whore went back upstairs and allegedly threw the baby girl against a bed then began yelling Kevin’s name. Kevin yelled back to her to wait, however this proved to be a fatal mistake, seeing as by the time he got up there Taylor had went to fly with the angels.

Neighbors said that all of this took course over the span of an hour, between hearing the couple argue to the time that they heard sirens and saw Kevin running outside with the baby girl lifeless in his arms. The police attempted to resuscitate baby Taylor then transferred her to Mainland Center Hospital however she was pronounced deceased at 5 am. The police took step-bitch into custody where she admitted to shoving the girl to the floor and then throwing her on a bed, killing her…fucking stupid cunt.

Step-bitch has been charged with first degree felony injury to a child, with a bond of $250,000. I hope to God she rots in hell and gets shanked for robbing such an innocent sweet child of her life.

R.I.P Taylor, you were taken way too soon.

Texas child has hand severely burned by violent stove top

Be careful of these potential child abusers in your house. Given the chance they will burn all of your children.

Be careful of these potential child abusers in your house. Given the chance they will burn all of your children.

Sheriff: Mom burned child’s hands on stove:

Weslaco mom accused of putting her son’s hand on a hot stove:

In Hidalgo County, Texas an oven was arrested after it intentionally and unprovoked burned the hand of a 2-year-old boy. Wait, that’s not true at all. The person that was arrested was 26-year-old Claudia Ponce. She’s been charged with allegedly holding her 2-year-old son’s hand on the stove top after he wouldn’t stop crying. Because nothing stops a kid from crying more than second or third degree burns. (Sarcasm by the way.)

Ponce, who is illegally in The States and working as a prostitute, told police that her son accidentally burned his hand on some soup. For that to be true considering the extent of the injury the kid would have had to have kept his hand in the soup for a good 5 minutes while it was still on the stove. Either way doesn’t look good for her.

Claudia Ponce

Claudia Ponce

According to police Ponce has 5 other kids all under the age of 7 who she would routinely discipline them by beating them with a stick. All the children have been placed with social services except for the boy with the burns. He’s been placed with a foster family that deals with burn victims.

Again the reason that we post these stories about people trying to blame inanimate objects to cover up child abuse is to let them know that they are not smarter than police or doctors. They will get to the underlying cause of the injuries and they will still arrest you and you will go to prison so how about not abusing your kids in the first place huh?

If you encounter a child with severe burns here are some tips on what to do until emergency help arrives.
