Hannah Overton out of jail for now

Hannah Overton (crying salty tears)

Hannah Overton (crying salty tears)

Former convicted killer of her foster child Andrew Burd, Hannah Overton has been released on bond pending a new trial.

So having dealt with criminal misinformation before please allow me to explain what this means. She has not been exonerated. She has not been cleared of any charges. She has not been acquitted. She has not been found innocent. I know I sound like someone from the Department of Redundancy Department but sometimes you have to hold the morons’ hands.

A lot of the article I’ve read on the subject of her release say that she can spend Christmas with her kids and that she can hug her kids for the first time in 7 years. You know who can’t hug or spread Christmas with anyone? Andrew Burd, the foster child that she was entrusted with taking care of and instead allegedly killed him by violence, malice and neglect.

Just because she’s the favorite of 20/20 and a large megachurch doesn’t automatically make her innocent.

Justice is a gift that will go undelivered this Christmas.

Hannah Overton will be tried again in the death of Andrew Burd

Hannah Overton (crying salty tears)

Hannah Overton (crying salty tears)

Recently Hannah Overton had her murder conviction overturned in the death of her foster son Andrew Burd. She was initially convicted of killing Andrew by way of sodium poisoning as it was alleged she used some kind of salt filled seasoning as a punishment resulting in his death. There were also accusations of blunt force trauma against Andrew and making him sleep on a plywood bed under the watch of a hidden camera. Since Overton belonged to a local Texas mega-church there has been an outcry since her arrest to free her.

Now prosecutors have stated that they will bring her to trial again for Andrew’s death. If were prosecuting this case I would request to have it moved out of Nueces County so there would be a better chance of an impartial jury. Too many aspects of this case have been decided on because of emotions rather than the pursuit of justice.

What are diapers for, anyway?

Police: Texas solider beat daughter to death

Fort Bliss Soldier Dartarious Graham Allegedly Uses Belt To Kill 2-Year-Old Daughter

Notorious and Lizardmeth...oops....Dartorious and Elizabeth (honest mistake) - two of the three responsible for Peyton's death.

The two seemingly normal looking people above are Dartarious Graham, 20, and his wife, Elizabeth Graham (no age given), of El Paso Texas. They, along with a cousin of the father, have been arrested and are being held in connection with the death of two-year-old Peyton Graham. Peyton is the biological child of both Dartorious and Elizabeth. Since I don’t think either of these two individuals deserve to be called by name any longer, I will simply refer to them as Notorious and Loose-screw. Yes, I came up with those myself. Not very original, perhaps, but at least they’re accurate.

In the first paragraph, I mentioned that these two are being held in connection with the death of little Peyton. That was not quite accurate. Notorious has been charged with her MURDER, and Loose-screw and Robert Franklin (the cousin) are both being charged with “injury to a child by omission”. Folks, that’s just a fancy term for not doing a blessed thing to save a child who is being killed right in front of your eyes. They stood by and did nothing as Notorious beat little Peyton to death with a belt. Well, to be completely fair, the bio-slag wasn’t actually there at the time of the fatal beating, but according to reports, she had witnessed multiple previous beatings and did nothing to stop them. How can a mother stand by and watch anyone beat her child that way? The cousin actually witnessed the beginning of the final beating, and turned and walked away. My head spins. All three of the pseudo-adults in this debacle are being held at the El Paso County Jail. Notorious has a $250,000.00 bond, but no bond amount was listed for either the sorry slag or the callous cousin.

Why, you may ask, did this precious child deserve such a beating? She didn’t. NO child ever deserves to be treated this way. But Notorious thought she did, and why? Because she “soiled her diaper”. What?!?!?! She was TWO freakin’ years old! What in the blue depths of Hades did he expect? If she was wearing a diaper, that tells me that he KNEW she was not potty-trained, and therefore he knew that she might occasionally have an accident. However, instead of cleaning up his daughter, getting her a clean diaper and taking her to the bathroom to see if she needed to finish up (as any reasonable parent would do), he decided that a beating was in order. People like this make my flesh crawl. I hope he has explosive diarrhea every day for the rest of his life, and his inmates beat him every time he stinks up the cell.

As indicated in my previous remarks, this was not little Peyton’s first beating. Authorities have said that older wounds on the girl’s body were indicative of prior assaults by the sperm-donor. Good Lord. Older wounds? At two years old? When did the abuse start, I wonder? If this case is anything like previous cases, it likely started before she was a year old. Sick arse-tards. You don’t beat a baby, people. Ever. They are fragile, and often don’t realize that they have done anything wrong. Especially when that ‘wrong thing’ is a biological necessity. All people have to use the bathroom, and babies sometimes can’t control their bowels at that age.

Good grief, people, if I had beaten my children like this every time they had an accident while potty training, I wouldn’t have any children left alive! ALL children occasionally have accidents. And some kids have “deliberate accidents” (they are having so much fun playing they don’t want to interrupt playtime to go to the bathroom). One of mine did that one day in the back yard. She had been completely potty trained for several weeks, and came in with saggy pants and an ungodly stench about her. I knew what she had done, but I asked her anyway, and she politely explained to me that she “was having too much fun and didn’t want to come inside.” So I beat her bloody, and threw her on the floor. No, NOT really. What I did was send her to the bathroom with instructions to remove her soiled clothing and get into the bathtub. I told her if she was old enough to know better, and stubborn enough to poop in her pants anyway, she could clean up her own mess. I waited about five minutes and went to see if she was doing as she was told. She had taken off her clothes and dropped them on the floor, and was standing in the bathtub with crap from her waist to her ankles. And in the bottom of the tub. Guess what? I STILL didn’t beat her. I helped her wipe away the major portion of the mess with TP and flushed it. Then I turned on the shower and finished bathing her. Then I made her watch as I rinsed out her panties and shorts in the toilet, telling her next time, I would make her do it. She never did it again. No beating required. Now, this little ‘lesson’ did necessitate a thorough cleaning of the bathtub and bathroom floor afterwards (by me), but hey, what are Scrubbing Bubbles for, anyway? Oh, and I didn’t have a dead kid when I was done ‘teaching’ her, either. Everybody wins!

Why do some parents think that beating a baby with a belt will teach it ANYTHING? The only thing abuse like that teaches children….is fear. The floor is now open for comments…..

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.
