Bad Breeders

Parenting so bad, it's criminal

Stealing Tools

Denver baby beaten so badly mom “couldn’t even recognize” him; parents charged in death:

Speaking of tools those two tools are Travis Anderson and Crystal Eccleston of Denver, Colorado. He’s been charged with murder and she’s been charged with failure to seek treatment.

It’s alleged that Anderson beat their 20-day-old son so bad that his the boy’s own mother, Eccleston, didn’t even recognize him. However instead of taking the baby to the hospital she gave him a bath where he was non-responsive. Anderson on the other hand went out to steal some tools and then came home to look them up on the internet because apparently he didn’t know what he was stealing.

Seven hours later they took their baby to the hospital.

According to a probable cause statement, doctors at Children’s Hospital in Aurora who examined Sean Anderson when he arrived Dec. 15 said he had two skull fractures, profuse bleeding of the brain; bruises on the scalp; and what appeared to be burns on his face and foot.

Sean Anderson died four days later. Doctors had to remove a part of his skull to relieve the swelling of his brain.

Anderson and Eccleston are a lethal combination of evil and stupid.

Thanks to Christina for the tip.

  1. This made me cry. What reason could any person have for doing that to a newborn baby? He wasn’t even a month old.

    1. Try being the family. It has been the most horrific situation to go through.This is my family. My sister has lost her son, the only thing she did wrong that day was go to work to provide. Then came home to an injured son, in which the father denied anything happened and scared her to death so she would not go to the hospital.Now she has no son and will spend 14 years in jail.She loved her son more than anything. She never knew the extent of the injuries until she took him to the hospital.She is paying the ultimate price for her decision not to seek care sooner.If only she had known better.

  3. dodiafae, I agree with you. This was too hard to read. These are two people, mainly the dad, but the mom too. Who should be locked up, in a cold dark cell for eternity. We have no use for animals like this, keep them out of society and away from others. That is all I can say. where was the natural in born love for this child that most parents have? If you lack it you are not human.

  5. This child had no love. Only 20 days old, and this was the life that was offered.

    Saying these two were evil and stupid is actually an understatement. I’m not even sure they are human.

  7. This is just insane, 20 day old baby it makes no sense… I hope they get sentence and not excuse like many other killers are…. RIP little angel

  9. They should get the death penalty. Why give them a room with heat and tv and food and shelter and daily showers that “we the people” have to pay for? And, the death penalty shouldn’t take ten years. Get rid of them and make the world a safer place.

  13. I could not agree more with your final statement and I believe these two deserve a “lethal” injection. How can any grown man excuse such sick and uncaring behavior?

  15. WHAT could a not even three week old baby possibly do to enrage that DEMON father so much? How could you BEAT a newborn? And that stupid bitch of a mother!!!! If any man including my husband had beaten my son when he was a newborn (or even now) I would have grabbed a knife and disemboweled the son of a bitch right then and there!!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? I am so angry right now you can’t even imagine what I would do to this couple if I could!

  17. I have been reading PBB for some time now. Every story makes me cringe and wonder why we have such monsters in this world. But this story has me shaken to the core. How can anyone do things like that to a 20 day old baby? I will never understand evil and more then I will stupidity. I hope and pray to God that these 2 never see the light of day again….

  19. i used to know travis and cant belive any of this i geuss it all could be true but if any of you knew him like i did and knew how much he love his other son maybe you would think that it is unbelievable to. r.i.p. sean

    1. I knew Travis too, all I can say is DRUGS and This is CRAZY to hear… He was BAD when I knew him, can’t imagine what became of him after that… Would Never have thought this though…… Weird

    2. I wont deny that he loved his other son very much but for whatever reason he did do what he did to his second son. For that my sister will never see her son grow and his other son will never have his father in his life. It is a horrific situation. All the family is saddened deeply. He couldn’t be that good of a guy to do what he did. Another reason not to do drugs.He was a user and a dealer.

  23. O.M.G!!! 20 days old? I just don’t understand. So basically, he had a broken bone for every day he was alive. That poor little baby. I’m with all of you, what in God’s name could possibly make someone so enraged they would beat an infant like that? Please, please, please let these two monsters get what they deserve…..much needed ‘prison justice’.

    1. My sister was and is the mother of this baby. Her boyfriend beat him to death while she was at work. She came home after a long day at work to a boyfriend denying anything had happened to her son.My sister is not a monster. You have no idea what all went on.My sister had no clue the extent of her sons injuries and Travis denied anything had happened.She thought maybe he had dropped the baby and was scared to tell her. He scared the hell out of her so she would not take the baby to the hospital.He lied to her and manipulated her.Until you have been manipulated and lied to and scared for your life you will never fully understand what all went on with this whole situation. Mean while my sister is in jail for something she didn’t do and our whole family has lost a nephew,grandson,a cousin and most of all my sister lost her son whom she loved dearly. She breastfed him and wanted nothing but the best for him. A monster does not take the time to breastfeed.She is in intense pain at the loss of her son, whom she loved so much. Had she had any clue to the extent of his injuries she would have taken him immediately. She trusted that Travis had called the doctor that night and that Sean would be ok. She was a young new mother with no family around to turn to. She didn’t know if he was sick or what had happened. It’s no excuse but she ultimately is paying the highest price for her failure to seek immediate care for her son.

      1. My heart goes out to your family for this horrible loss. While the sperm donor is ultimately the one who murdered this child, your sister made some made bad decisions that ultimately contributed to his death. She too is paying the price, and the fact that she pled guilty makes me think she acknowledges her responsibility and is willing to take the consequences. I give her credit for that.

        1. Thank you. Yes she does take full responsibility for her actions.She knows what she did was so wrong.She is paying the price for it in more than one way. I just know how much she loved her son.She never even thought her boyfriend was capable of hurting his own son.It a terrible thing and our family has been through hell with the loss.He goes to trial tomorrow and I hope he goes to prison for life with no chance of parole. It’s beyond me how someone can do what he did to my poor newborn nephew.We still to this day do not know how he exactly hurt the baby, he denies it all. Obviously evidence has proved beyond a doubt that he did it.

      2. Michelle what makes you be so sure that the Dad did it? Do you think he will get life for what he did? What does your sister say about him?

        1. They are positive the dad did it. He was the only one home with my nephew all day. My sister was at work.My sister would never hurt a soul, she loves babies and kids.She was in love with her son. I talked to her everyday of her pregnancy and after she got home with him after giving birth.Evidence has proved it was him and only him that beat my nephew. I pray to God he gets life for what he has done. He deserves that. My nephew will never be here with us again. My sister will never watch her son grow up. And all my family will mourn for the loss of him forever. The hurt never goes away. He would of almost been a year old now, instead he is lying in a cemetary.

      3. Hi sister, why do you think the Dad is guilty? What happened that night there?

        1. The baby was in the dads care that day while my sister worked. She came home to an injured baby. While the dad denied anything happened and showed no concern for the babies pale color or bruise on his head. He then proceeded to scare the hell out of my sister so she wouldn’t take him to the hospital. He tried to act like the baby was fine and made her believe it too. He never told her what happened. No one knows still.She held him all night, he ate well and then she tried to give him a warm bath to see if it would help him. She rocked him all night until finally the doctor who was supposedly called by the dad, never called back. She finally couldn’t take it anymore and made the dad take them to the hospital.The baby was born with a bruise on her head from the birth so the dad just claimed it reappeared and that she was over reacting.He wasn’t even 3 weeks old yet..

          1. Devastated, I saw the case on the news since it first came out. I am interested to see what is going to happen with the Dad. You said he is in trial? What do you think it is going to happen to that monster? It is everything very sad. I am sorry. That poor baby. Does he have family?

          2. The trial begins tomorrow. Hopefully it will end by friday and we can hear what his punishment is. Are you asking if the dad had family or the baby? The dad does, his mom and dad have been at every hearing for him, they are in denial that he did it. They are more concerned that he gets to be with his current son he has and that he doesn’t get life in jail. His son is like 4 years old I believe.

          3. Parents have a hard time realizing how bad their kids can be. Trial begins tomorrow? Is your sister going to be there? I read a few things about the Dad saying that he was a violent person. Maybe his parents have never seen that side of him. And he has another child??? Where is the mother of that child to be a witness of his violent behave? She should be in that courtroom.

      4. i dont mean to sound heartless, but how in God’s name could she have not known the extent of his injuries? if he had broken bones he would have been in extreme pain. Im not buying what you are selling, im sorry but she knew and didnt do anything. Poor baby, no more pain sweetie, rip.

        1. It kind of makes sense what Madison is saying…was not the baby swollen? Was not him totally down? What really went on that she did not realize how sick and hurt the baby was? I think the Dad is a monster but the Mom should have noticed something sooner.

        2. You don’t sound heartless. I know where you are coming from.What I mean by saying she didn’t know the extent of his injuries is that he didn’t have broken bones.He had a skull fracture. She had no idea he had a skull fracture until at the hospital. The evidence shows the baby was hurt very soon before my sister was off work, his head had not swelled yet. And he was not crying.The dad did this right before she came home.He sadly was so hurt he couldn’t cry.And I am not selling any story so there’s nothing for you to buy. It’s not a story, it’s my family and my nephew who is not here anymore. Yes she did know something was wrong with him, I have never said she didn’t. I would not go as far as she did absolutely nothing. She did try to call the doctor and left urgent messages for a call back while she held her son feeding him and bathing him. Should she have taken him immediatly to the Hospital? Yes of course she should have. But the bottom line she is not the one who brutally beat her baby. The dad did! And she never even knew he was capable of such a thing until in the hospital that night, when she was told by the doctors that he had a skull fracture.It is sad that any mother should ever have to be put in a position like this. No mother should come home to her newborn beaten brutally by the dad. My sister acknowledges and accepts her poor judgement call. She will live with this for the rest of her life. While the dad shows no remorse and acts like nothing happened.

          1. Wow.  I really like you.  You go up against one of our hardest regulars and stay composed.  I’m not sure I could handle myself that way.  I hope you stick around.  BTW – Madison is really a sweetheart – but no where near as sweet as me!!  😉

          2. thanks april, again, im not trying to be mean to her. im just flabbergasted. and you are sweet.

          3. I know where you are coming from.  Oh… and don’t lie to me.  I’m not that sweet and we all know it.  People either love me or hate me – no in between.  Hell, you remind me of me.  I think that’s why I love you so much!

          4. well i think you are delightful and you give me warm fuzzies.

          5. Warm fuzzies…. That sounds kinky.

  24. O.M.G!!! 20 days old? I just don’t understand. So basically, he had a broken bone for every day he was alive. That poor little baby. I’m with all of you, what in God’s name could possibly make someone so enraged they would beat an infant like that? Please, please, please let these two monsters get what they deserve…..much needed ‘prison justice’.

  25. this is so sickening!!! I could barely get through the whole article. I can not imagine being capable of that type of cruelty to a infant my own or anyone else’s. I’m ill right now from reading this.

  27. A couple of f****** battering rams…

  28. A couple of f****** battering rams…

  29. The braindead “mom”, Crystal, pleaded guilty to child abuse leading to death and was given 14 years. The jackass “dad” is scheduled for trial on Nov. 15th. He’s charged with first degree murder and 2 counts of child abuse resulting in death. I wish he would just swallow a gun and save everyone some time and trouble.

  30. The Father was a drug dealer? Horrible. Was he on drugs that night?

  31. My sister lost her daughter a few years back due to an illness. I can`t believe someone would kill a baby. I am from Mexico and we came to the US to try to save her little girl. And someone has a child and just hits that baby? Give the baby away but don`t hurt him.

    1. I am sorry to hear of your loss. I couldn’t agree with you more.My sister wanted her son more than anything, why he secretly didn’t I will never know or understand. All he would of had to do was leave my sister. He is sick in his head.
      Yes, I have heard he is a violent person as well. I believe the mother of his first son knows he is violent, but she as well doesn’t want her son to never has his dad around.But there obviously is a reason we she and him never stayed together.My sister is just sick about this, she didn’t realize until after this all happened how manipulated and controlled she was by him.

  32. Will you keep all of us informed as the trial goes on? Thank you.

    1. I’ve been following the banter back and forth.  Yes – please keep us posted.

      1. Absolutely. Do you live near Denver?

        1. No.  I live in Los Angeles.  There are several storied on this site that have captured my heart and I follow closely…. I follow them all, really – but some more closely than others.  This is one of them.

    2. Yes of course I will. Do you live near Denver? I’m sure it will be all over the news soon. I live in California so I doubt it will hit our news stations. But I will know as soon as he is sentenced.I will keep you all updated.

      1. You are AWESOME!  Our readers love updates, especially if justice has been served!

        1. Thats what we are all hoping for. I hope he gets life with no parole, so he has no chance of getting out and doing it again. He is a sick animal. I can’t wait to hear the verdict. His parents have hired him a high priced lawyer, to try and get him off the hook. But I don’t believe the lawyer is a magician. He will not walk away from this unpunished.He is lucky he even has legs to walk right now.

          1. Funny you call him a sick animal.  Don’t we put sick animals to sleep?  The same should apply to these assholes.  He should be stoned to death.

          2. Please…for God`s sake…is there any chance he will walk unpunished??

          3. Hopefully not. But No punishment will ever be enough. I cannot see how a jury would let him off or not ask for the maximum punishment. He cared so little for what he did that he went and stool tools that night from his old work. Then went home after and looked up the value of them. Then when my sister made him take the baby to the hospital, he asked her if he could stop off for some coffee on the way.She couldn’t believe it and yelled at him NO!

          4. ok…coffee?? Does the DA know all that? Is the judge aware of every little detail? If the dad has an expensive lawyer….what if he puts up a show and get him free? Is your sister going to be at the trial?

          5. Yeah coffee. I stood up in court on my sisters behalf and told them about the coffee thing and many other things I knew. As I said my sister and are very close and I knew many things. My sister will be testifying against him at the trial tomorrow. Somehow she has been told by the DA what she can and cannot say about his drug abuse, being a drug dealer or stealing the tools, as she testifies in court. Guess they don’t want the Jury to see what a creep this guy really is. I have no idea how this all is ok. I just spoke with her today and she is just sick about all this. I guess if your parents have money for a high priced Lawyer, then maybe you can get away with murder in th 1st degree. I’m sick and sad. Can’t wait to hear the verdict!

          6. Gee then maybe some un-named source close to the mother’s family needs to leak all of this to the press.
            Then if the deviant dog gets less than he deserves there will be questions.

          7. So…you are saying that she can not be totally honest as she stands up in court tomorrow??? That is crazy! Was he on drugs when the baby got hit? No one can get away with murder. Let`s be real here. Something else is going on. People don`t just hit and kill an innocent baby and get a good lawyer and walk away FREE!!

          8. Yes he was on drugs when he hurt the baby. I think Meth. But they never drug tested him when he was arrested. That just blows my mind. How could they not? He was in jail going through withdrawals after and shitting himself, but no drug test was ever given. They even found his drugs in the apartment, hidden. I really don’t think he will walk away free but I do get a little worried that he will not get a proper punishment, which is life and hopefully someone finishes him off in Prison. An eye for eye right?! It would only be fair. And yes she cannot say certain things, I do not understand how they get away with this stuff. My mom will be there to testify and she can say whatever she wants, as far as the truth to who he really is, and she will.

          9. Honestly, I think you and your Mom should call the news, tv, newspapers and let them know about that. Not testing for drugs is like basic for the police…if they have not done that…they deserve to be punished…how can they not test someone that is being accused of murder for drugs? That to me is ridiculous….not acceptable. We, as citizens, have the obligation to let everyone know what goes on with our Police..the ones that we pay with our taxes! Your Mom should say everything she knows and more. How is the trial going? Does it look like he is going to get only 10 years or so? Please let us know.

          10. I agree with you completely. I am calling my sisters Lawyer today to ask him what the hell this is all about. Especially with her being told what she can say and not say, thats insane. She lived with him, she knows all the important things that the jury needs to know.My mom will do her best, as the babies grandma I’m sure you can imagine how difficult this is for her and how enraged she is. She was there with them 3 days before this happened for a week. Loving the baby and watching my sister bond with him and care for him. They went shopping together for him, took tons of pictures and just held him the whole week loving on him. He was so beautiful and precious, my mom was just in love with him, my sis too.She would even ask me to call her later if she was busy nursing him and cuddling with him.I know my sister been made to look like a horrible person but shes not. She was so very wrong for what she neglected to do, which was not get him immediate help. But before all this my sister worked her ass off, she worked over 60 hours a week every week as a manager and paid all the bills. Babies dad did not work. She worked all the way to the end of her pregnancy, long hours. She bought so many things for the baby just so he could have everything he needed.Sadly it all was short lived and she doesn’t even see the point in herself living now.

          11. That’s not just crazy, it’s blatantly illegal. The DA is legally bound to bring out the whole truth and is specifically barred by law in every state in this country from directing a witness WHAT to say on the stand. In fact, withholding facts – even ones that are in the prosecution’s favor – could give the defense grounds for appeal later.

          12. Let the newspaper know that. Everyone deserves to know how the system works and especially when they don’t do what is right. Are you kidding me that they told the Mom what to say and what not to say on stand…is that a sick joke????

  33. Devastated have you heard anything at all about the trial? What is happening in that courtroom?

    1. Hi. So far nothing. I know the Jury was picked yesterday and the trial began this morning. My sister should be testifying today and/or tomorrow. Doubtful I will hear anything until my mom gets there or comes home.I will post as soon as I hear anything at all.

      1. Thank you. We are all hoping that he gets punished for what he did. I hope to hear some news from you soon.

    2. Ok. I have spoke to my sisters Lawyer. He said it was ordered by the Judge for her not to speak of certain things in order for him to get a fair trial. Still is Bullshit to me. I think they should know everything about him. It’s all what makes him the monster he is!

      1. Did your sister use drugs during her pregnancy or after the baby was born?

        1. No my sister didn’t use drugs during her pregnancy, she took great care of herself and I even spent some time with her during her pregnancy. She gave birth to a healthy baby boy and went home soon after with him. She did not do drugs after the birth either. She was prescribed percocet as a pain reliever after the birth and thats all she took.She was told it was safe to breastfeed while on it and thats what she did.

          1. I was part of the jury pool in this case. Everything about the case is disturbing. I was dismissed from jury selection late on Monday before the trial started. Was your family aware of the father’s drug use?

          2. Wow, are you serious? You were in the jury pool? It is a very disturbing case. Did they tell you much about it? We were aware of the drug use after the baby was hurt. My mom suspected it when she was there the week before the injuries, he was up all night and was in and out of the house all the time. He acted strange too.I don’t know how jury duty works, did they tell you about the case?

          3. Wow…did you hear something about the Dad that it was disturbing?

      2. A fair trial is when the WHOLE truth is out there. How is the jury supposed to know who he is if they don`t have all the facts? Has your sister testified yet? Do you know how today was?

        1. I couldn’t agree more. I’m sick about this.My sister testifies tomorrow. Today went by fast. They held my sister in a holding cell all day while the trial went on and never called her in there. Then when it was time to leave they had her walk out side by side with the dad. What the hell!! What is going on? Why would they do that! I am pissed and don’t understand all this!

  34. Please let us know how today goes. Thanks.

    1. I will for sure. My mom is flying there now and I will speak to her tonight. She isn’t allowed to sit in the court room for the trial, she will only be brought in to testify, but I will update you all with any news I get.Thanks for going through this with me.It’s nice to have some support through this ordeal.

      1. We are all here for you.  I know that it seems like I’m not reading the comments – but I am.  Trust me.

        1. Thank you!

          1. I jus t thought you should know that there are people here for you – more than you could possibly imagine.  I’d be willing to bet that others are following the thread – regulars to the site.  There are so many people that care.  Many of us feel so much pain when these children die – and we don’t even know them.  I hate the thought of what you and your family must be going through.  I really do.  My heart aches for you.

          2. Thank you. That means a lot to me. I have been reading a lot of the stories on here and am sickened. I never knew this kind of thing is going on everywhere. It is so horrific to see how common it is. My husband and I tried for many years with fertility treatment to have a baby. After four long years we finally got pregnant with our twin daughters. So I know how it feels to want a child and not know if you will ever have one. I wanted my babies so bad. I finally have them and they are the loves of my life. I would do anything for them. I would rather die than ever see them hurt a single bit.Children are so sweet and innocent. They come into this world without a choice and it the parents job to raise them well and love them and keep them safe. I spend everyday with my twin girls and love them more everyday. I am so sad my sister will never have that. She feels like giving up right now and I don’t blame her. The giult is terrible and nothing will bring him back or make it ok. All we can hope for is that the dad is punished correctly. My sister will do her time and learn from this and get the help she needs to be a better person.And to make better decisions in the future, all sadly at the cost of her beautiful baby boy.Thank you for listening, having support and people understand helps. I took a risk by getting on here, I thought I would be attacked for writing. But I was wrong.It helps a little when people here both sides of the story, not just the one that is portrayed to be true by the media.

          3. I think the reason you didn’t get attacked is because you came across as sincere instead of irrational like others that come here to defend the actions of these murderers.  You weren’t defending anyone – just telling us how you feel, and there was no reason for us to attack you.  You seem like a person that cares for her sister and is mourning the loss of a baby nephew.  I can respect that.  Your family lost two people when your nephew was killed.  Even though your sister isn’t dead, you have (in a sense) lost her.  I feel.  You are welcome to reach out if you ever need a friend.  I will be here.  I may not respond to every comment, the hundreds of stories here take up so much time, but I will be here when you need me and look forward to all of your updates.  Also, you are welcome to comment anywhere on the site.  I know, as a mother, that the subject matter here is one that we are all passionate about. 
             
            Hang in there love.

          4. Thank you. It does feel like I have lost them both.It helps to be able to vent a little of this out without doing it to my family who is going through it as well. I am on pins and needles today waiting to hear any news from my mom, once she is out of court for the day. I feel bad for her, she has to look at the person who murdered her grandson. Hardest thing ever!

          5. Hang in there. Please let us know ok? Did you sister testify today?

          6. Ok. My sister testified this morning. I haven’t got to talk to her yet. My mom testified, it was mostly just yes or no questions. They were just asking about things that had happened the week prior to the injuries. So other than that we are just waiting for the nurses and doctors who treated the baby at the doctors office prior and in the hospital after to testify. It’s a waiting game and it sucks. It sounds like the trial is going very fast though.I will update if I hear more. Thank you.

          7. I’m sure it’s hard for everyone.  I’m sorry.  I’ve been thining about you all day.

          8. Hi April.Thank you. We are getting close to hearing whether the jury finds him guilty or not, on all 3 charged, lets hope!

          9. Heard anything?

          10. Not yet!!! Hopefully soon! Maybe tomorrow will be the day!

  35. Ok guys….he did not get tested for drug abuse…so big mistake from the DA and the police. It is over. There is nothing anyone can do at this point. The DA is doing a very poor job. How can anyone prove at this point that he was totally drugged the day/night that the baby got hurt??? So all we can do is sit and watch…he is going to walk away almost free. Sad, sad right?

    1. Yeah, it’s unbeleivable he was not drug tested. Major mistake on their behalf. That could of helped in the trial.Lets hope he is punished for this severely!

      1. Devastated, I’m a lurker and very rarely comment. I’m an American in South Africa and I read all types of crime blogs every morning. Your story has broken my heart. I feel great sympathy for your love of your sister and nephew, and I wish you strength for your future.

        Just so you know, it is common in trials not to bring up a perpetrator’s past history, as it may sway the jury. This is actually not unusual.

        1. Quit your fucking lurking and be a regular again!!

          1. I hear ya. I just usually don’t comment because I read these blogs way too early in the morning. My mind can absorb info with that first cup of coffee, but it usually doesn’t function otherwise.

          2. I miss you, damn it!

          3. You know where to find me!

          4. South Africa?

          5. Yep, but not forever. I’m coming home as soon as his paperwork goes through.

          6. REALLY????  Then you’ll make me a pecan pie???

          7. You got that right! But you’re gonna have to hit the Deep South to pick it up.

            Bad news, we’re working on African time. It gets done when they get around to it, as long as they don’t lose the papers first. It should be months although I’d be on that plane right now this instant if I could.

          8. I’m not afraid of deep south!  I’ll even bring you some sweet tea vodka so we can sit on the porch and heckle the neighbors.

        2. Thank you for your kindness. I am starting understand now why it all works the way it does. When my mom was in court yesterday they said they are trying to avoid any chance of a mistrial and that is why certain things were not allowed to be talked about.This is such a first for my family and we are learning as we go along. Thank you for your thoughts.

          1. Yes, that is correct. And the last thing you want is a mistrial. Don’t worry. They will do their best to make sure he stays behind bars. Do your best to trust them.

    2. Mother fuck!  How can the be possible??????

  36. Devastated do you think the trial will be over by tomorrow and we will hear his punishment?

    1. Hi, it could possibly be over at the end of today, but hopefully at the latest by tomorrow.My whole family is waiting desperately to find out.

  37. Devastated we are all thinking about you and your family. I agree that they will do their best to keep him behind bars. Today or tomorrow hopefully we will all know.

  38. Devastated keep us informed,please!!!!

    1. I sure will. Still waiting to hear something. I kind of wish the media was following this, then maybe we would at least know something. I am hopeful for a call today.

      1. Heard anything?

        1. Still waiting. I’m going crazy too and my whole family is.I hope we don’t have to go through the whole weekend and through Thanksgiving to hear what happened.

  39. Ok the trial is over and it is in the Jury’s hands now. Sooo, we shall see. It could be fast or slow. There is no time limit for the Jury to decide.

    1. Oh, please keep us posted.

  40. Really? I guess it is a waiting game now. Thank you for posting the news here. You have been so sweet. Please keep us posted.

    1. Ok everyone, the Jury has the next 45 minutes to decide, if no decision is made by then, they will begin deliberating again monday morning. Lets hope we do not have to go through the weekend waiting.

      1. It is so sweet of you to keep us updated.  Thanks!

        1. Ok, no word back, so it looks like next week, hopefully monday we will find something out. Maybe it’s good, maybe the he will be tortured by the fact of not knowing his fate. The bastard thinks he is going to get away with murder, literally!

          1. Gawd.. Let’s hope not.  I’d like to see him hung for what he did.

          2. Alright. Lets hope tomorrow is the day that he is found guilty on all counts and is in Prison for life, as he rightfully deserves!!!

          3. *crosses fingers*

          4. Ok. The Jury is back in court now to deliberate on all three counts. I will upate as soon as I hear anything.

          5. Thanks, love!

          6. can`t wait!!!!!

          7. Still waiting to hear what the Jury says…
            My mom just gave me a necklace in remembrance of our sweet baby we lost. Its an angel with a diamond.She is wearing one herself too so we can always keep this sweet baby close to our hearts forever. If you know my mom, you would know this isn’t like her. She doesn’t show her feelings at all, so this means a lot to me.

          8. Give her hugs and kisses and let her know that we are all thinking about your family.

          9. Thank you. I know I have never said the baby’s name but his name is Sean Paul and he would have turned one on Thanksgiving Day. I am thankful I will be with my parents this Thanksgiving, so we can all be together during this time.

          10. Oh gawd. That makes me feel so sad.

          11. Oh, God! My oldest’s name is Sean and my youngest’s middle name is Paul.

          12. Wow. That’s my oldest son’s birthday. He’ll be 22 this year.

          13. I only wish my nephew had gotten the chance to be able to live to 22 years old, he sadly never even made it to 22 days old.

          14. Gawd.. Let’s hope not.  I’d like to see him hung for what he did.

  41. nothing yet???

    1. Ok. Just got a call. No decision yet. Hoping soon.

      1. Is everyone in the courtroom? Oh my…

        1. Well I guess we get to wait at least another day. No decision yet, still…. I am thinking they are having a hard time with finding him guilty for First Degree Murder without a doubt. He never would admit exactly what he did to the baby.So without knowing any details, only knowing the baby was with him, leaves doubt I guess….

  42. The Jury is STILL deliberating. If I don’t hear anything by tomorrow than I guess we all wait 5 more days . I leave on vacation tomorrow morning, so I will not be able to update until monday morning of next week.
    Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and I wish for my baby nephew to have a sweet first birthday up in Heaven with the angels on November 25th.

    1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.  I’ll be thinking about youi.

      1. Thank you April. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too.
        Yeah, manslaughter. All I can hope for now is that he at least spends the maximum time allowed in Prison. It’s crazy to think people can murder babies and not even get charged and sentenced correctly for it.

        1. No – what you can hope for is a little prison justice.  There’s something to be thankful for on Thursday.

  43. Ok. I just got the call we all have been waiting for. Travis was found guilty of manslaughter and child abuse resulting in death. His sentence will be anywhere from 16 to 48 years, lets hope for the higher end. Sentencing date is unknown at this point.

    1. Manslaughter?  Are you fucking kidding me???  He murdered that baby.  Guh!  I feel sick.

    2. Yes! Just what we wanted to hear. Thank you so much for keeping us updated. Personally, I hope he rots in his cell.

      1. Thank you to all of you who supported me through all this. In January we will hear what the bastard gets sentenced too. Lets hope for the maximum!

        1. Please please please keep us posted.

          1. I will, I promise!

  44. Man charged with child abuse in incident that left child critically injured

    A Gadsden man has been charged with child abuse stemming from an incident on Friday that critically injured a 5-year-old girl.

    Steven Jamar Jackson, 23.

    Steven Jamar Jackson, 23, has been charged with aggravated child abuse, Gadsden police announced Tuesday at a Tuesday press conference.

    Iyana Spencer, Jackson’s stepdaughter, was flown to Children’s Hospital in Birmingham for surgery about 7:30 p.m. Friday from a landing zone at the parking lot of the Mort Glosser Amphitheatre.

    Spencer was in critical condition Tuesday afternoon, according to a hospital spokesperson.

    Gadsden Fire Department medics received a call about 6:30 p.m. that a child had fallen in her bedroom at a house in the 1300 block of Kentucky Avenue. Medics called the police department.

    “The 5-year-old child was admitted with traumatic brain injury, including epidural and subdural hematoma, lacerated liver, pulmonary contusions (and) multiple bruises and injuries to the genital area,” said Juvenile Detective Wayne Hammonds at Tuesday’s news conference.

    Hammonds said there was some indication of sexual abuse to the child. He said the injuries could have been sustained during her surgery, but said based on his conversations with the child’s doctor, that scenario was unlikely.

    Evidence was collected for a rape kit.

    Jackson is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on a $125,000 bond.

    He is awaiting trial on a child abuse charge from a case in Nov. 20, 2008, in which his 6-month-old child received a broken arm, according to court documents.

    Jackson was indicted by an Etowah County grand jury, and he was released on bond.

    Conditions of that bond were that he not have contact with anyone younger than 18 years old. After he was taken into custody as a suspect in the alleged abuse of the 5-year-old girl, that bond was revoked.

    Hammonds said another child, Jackson’s 11-month-old daughter, also was inside the home, and Jackson was the only caregiver for the children present, at the time of the alleged incident.

    He said Ruthie Jackson, Jackson’s wife and mother of the two children, was not aware of the previous charges pending against her husband.

    Hammonds said she will not face any criminal charges.

  45. I fell like I need to post something here. I know Travis, I know his family and I KNOW Travis would never ever hurt Sean. He may be on drugs, stealing but that is far from hurting a baby. What just happened was unfair. It is a case of she said he said. There are NO evidences against either one. No one really knows what happened. I am not saying Crystal did it…but I know for sure Travis is innocent…and him being found guilty is crazy. People should not be held guilty without firm evidences. Big mistake. The DA did a poor job but I guess they convinced the jury. I hope Travis`s parents find a way to prove his innocence. Trust me you guys..he would never hurt that baby. He wanted that baby. He is a great Father to his other child…I have seen them together and you can tell how much he loves that child. Same thing was going on with Sean. Travis was in love with the idea of having another boy. He may be unsettle at times but he is definitely not a killer.

    1. Did you miss the part where he was found GUILTY?

    2. Maria you ignorant slut, you picked the wrong crowd to try and get to swallow your bullshit. I am embarrassed for you, but secretly delighted! If you don’t catch a shit storm from someone, I will be back to deliver it myself.

      1. It’s just not worth it.  The delusional idiots just don’t get it.

        1. Sigh……. another time then. It’s just that this one looked so ripe.

          1. Naw – If the tard comes back, go for it.  But this may be a one time tard.

          2. I defer to your finely honed sense of smell.

          3. Fuck, I love you.

          4. The feeling is mutual.

          5. Damn.  I think we should spoon.  It’d sure piss off everyone wle show wants a piece of us – and there are MANY!!  Wait… that could just be in my head.

          6. Spooning leads to forking

          7. Haaaahaaaaaahaaaa.  You say that like it’s a bad thing.

          8. April, It is NOT in your head! Oh and Beanmagnet, I like forking first and then spooning.

          9. lol… me too… but Ive come to notice that forking and then spooning most often leads to… snoring…

    3. Maria… I feel for you really I do. Same thing happened in my town not to long ago. A girl Ive known for years killed one of her kids and nearly starved the other one to death. As much as I want to be able to say that I feel like she would never do something like that, because I never thought in a million years she would, the evidence is overwhelmingly against her and I can not argue against evidence and neither can you. Lots of times we dont know the people we ‘know’ as well as we would like to think we ‘know’ them.

      1. I’m glad you came back.  Just sayin’….

  46. Hah! Lots of people have told me that, but a few feel like I do, that forking then spooning can often lead to more forking.

  47. Especially when a certain amount of alcohol is involved.

    1. Alcohol and forking?  You just described my Saturday nights.

      1. A hot tub is occasionally factored in with these kind of Saturday night activities. How do you feel about this? Tell me honestly.

        1. Only if a camera is involved.

      2. 🙁 Guess I missed Wednesday Ladies night out on BB, awwww shucks. Wish I would of been here. What ever happened to “Mary”? Did she leave the party early? Did you ladies make her feel bad at our BB Bar and she left. lmao!!!! Good job ladies keep the trash out!!!!!!

        Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow?

        1. “how does your garden grow”??  If you are talking about her muff, my guess is it grows out of bounds.  If you are talking about an actual garden, my guess is it’s illegal.

          1. You’re too funny!!!! =)

  48. By your words I can tell you are a nice and educated person. I feel sorry for you. Yes, my friend you are delusional. Why don`t you tell me – since you are so well informed – the evidences they have against Travis? You are also right – wrong crowd. People trained not to think for themselves are dangerous. People that accept without knowledge of the situation should not criticize or judge. Were you there inside of the place where the baby was hurt? What makes you such an expert on what happened? She said He said kind of situation…they picked the Mom to offer a deal…they chose her probably because it is far more appealing to a jury to see her as the innocent. Are you aware of her life story? I bet not. So why don`t you educate yourself first…then go around writing things about people. Just FYI you should never speak out loud about stuff you are not fully aware of -You should have read Crystal`s and Travis`s profile…then maybe write something about their case. You are the typical american that people from ALL OVER THE WORLD make fun of. You are proving them right.

    1. You can come here and spew all the bullshit you want, it still doesn’t change the fact that a little boy, who didn’t get to live a fucking month, is dead and your fuck buddy was responsible for it. Yes, regardless of your OPINION, which is all your moronic statements are, that bitch-ass punk is responsible for causing his death. A jury thought so, as does this court of public opinion. Your OPINION means less than nothing, so why don’t you go back to your trailer, shoot up (snort? smoke?), and wonder where you life went so wrong. Probably the day you were born.

      1. Wait…bla,bla,bla…that is what I read on your message. Oh JJ…sorry…your punishment in life is being you. Enough said?

        1. Awww, did I hit a nerve? You can’t dispute the FACTS, slutwad, so eat shit and God bless.

          As far as insulting me, go ahead. I’ve had better than you try and get to me and the fact of the matter is I don’t allow that. Do you really think I care what some random person on the interwebs thinks of me? You, however, obviously do care, so once again, go back to your trailer and let the grown ups with all their teeth and an edumacation over the 5th grade play, mmmkay?

          1. It always amazes me how people that have nevr met you think that meaningless words will get to you.  I have always been under the impression that you have to know someone’s insecurities to insult them.  Some people just don’t get it, do they?

        2. Funny.  You want to insult JJ but stick up for a baby killer.  That speaks VOLUMES about you as a person.  I’d say you being you is punishmeant as well.  Hello Pot…..

        3. Funny.  You want to insult JJ but stick up for a baby killer.  That speaks VOLUMES about you as a person.  I’d say you being you is punishmeant as well.  Hello Pot…..

    2. Mary -YOU apparently do not know Crystal at all, all you know is what you have heard. Crystal is my sister and I grew up with her my whole life. She is not perfect and she has made mistakes in her life but all she wanted more than anything was this baby. She loved him dearly.Crystal would never hurt a baby or a child.You may think Travis would never do such a thing, but he did. Yes he was on drugs and people are capable of many things when they are on drugs that they normally would not do.As much as you would like to think he did not do this, you are out of your mind.He was a good dad to his other son, but as far as Sean things were a little different, starting with the fact that he was upset because this baby did not look like him, he had blonde hair not red hair like himself and James. So with that he began running his mouth saying maybe Sean was not his baby.He treated the two boys differently, I knew that from what my mom observed while she was there for the week prior to the abuse.Crystal and Travis both have things from their past that aren’t good, but obviously there was enough to convict Travis and not Crystal. Crytsal didn’t get a deal or take a plea. She took responsibility and acknowledged what she did was wrong, instead of taking it to trial and pretending she wasn’t guilty. She is in jail for 14 years for not seeking immediate help for him, she didn’t abuse him or hurt him.I don’t call 14 years a deal! If Travis was innocent how come he lied and told 5 different stories of what occured that night, none of them adding up to be true as well? Crystals details of that night stayed the same and never fluctuated and were found consistent with all evidence.I believe if Travis didn’t do it then he would have had one story and one story only. It would not have changed at all. I know he comes from a good family, but that doesn’t make him a good person, he had become a drug dealer and a heavy user during the time Crystal was with him.I feel for his family, they did not ask for this and never wanted to see something so horrific happen in their family. Neither did did my family. Sean was a beautiful baby who should have been able to live a happy and full life.All the family who is involved has been deeply saddened by the loss of baby Sean Paul.He will always be in our hearts. Travis and Crystal are ultimately responsible for his death and they both deserve to do the time they were sentenced.The bottom line in a baby has lost his life and someones responsible, and thankfully he will be sentenced and have to pay for what he did.

      1. Fuck that loser, sweetie. Some people just refuse to accept what is smacking them in the face. It’s easier for them to lash out and blame everyone else rather than deal with the reality of a horrible situation. Do you see the way she came here with her asshole, know-it-all attitude? Did you see the way she was IMMEDIATELY told to eat shit and die? We do not tolerate that type of ignorant bullshit. We are willing to hear the other side of the story, as you personally know. We are willing to discuss things, disagreements lead to healthy, productive debates. We are NOT willing to have some c**t pop up and try to deflect blame from where it belongs. Especially when you don’t have a fucking shred of proof except for that ever popular and thoroughly full of shit “I know him/her and he/she would NEVER do something like that”.

        1. I like you jj! Thank you. You put it perfectly.

          1. Awww, shucks.

          2. Everyone likes JJ.  She the BEST!

    4. Just because Crystal too a plea doesn’t make her any less guilty – or you any less retarded.  HE WAS FOUND GUILTY!!!  Maybe not of murder, but child abuse resulting in death…. Which translates to murder!!!  I’m outraged that this piece of shit killed a baby.  If that makes me a stupid American, then so be it!  I’ll proudly wear that crown while you go fuck yourself.

    6. Oh dear Lord no. Mary you ignorant slut. I am a typical American that makes fun of you for using the word “evidences.” The word “evidences” is not a real word, “evidence” is both singular and plural.
      I don’t need to know anymore about Travis and Crystal’s life history. Her own SISTER has informed everyone of Crystal’s mistakes and she has also provided information about Travis that makes everything more clear as to why he murdered his son without remorse. Stop to get a cup of coffee, my ass. I want to boil him in coffee for that statement alone. AND YES I BELIEVE HE SAID THAT. I wasn’t there and I still believe it.
      This is NOT a “he said she said kind of situation” you fucking moron. This is a Travis tortured this poor little baby boy, Crystal did not get help soon enough and the baby died situation. You are such a fucking piece of shit. Telling me I can’t think for myself? You are the delusional one, you c*ck sucking hyena lowlife smegma encrusted c**trump. You need to wipe the cum out of your eyes and see what is going on. Idiot.

      1. II think pulled a muscle from laughing..  Fuck me.

  49. Travis will be sentenced this coming thursday!! January 13th. Hoping for the maximum!

    1. Please keep us posted.  I hope he gets the max.

      1. Me too! I will let you know!

  50. Tomorrow’s the day!!!

    1. I’ve got fingers and toes crossed.  I hope the hang the fucker.

      1. Me too. He has been in Protective Custody all this time. Once he is sentenced they will move him and I think he will get what he deserves once he gets in General Population!!!!

  51. Travis Anderson was sentenced 40 years yesterday for the murder of my 20 day old nephew.My family feels justice was served, wished it was life but is thankful for at least 40 years. His family has 90 days to appeal it and I am sure they will. But until then my family will feel he is getting the time he deserves. Travis took my nephew away and my sister’s son and now Travis’ father will never see him again, other than behind bars.

    1. Awesome!  Now…. was it 40 without parole?  Or will he only serve a third and be back to killing babies in 13 years?

      1. It’s 40 years and he has to serve at least 75% of it and then he can try to get out on parole. He will also have 5 years probation after his sentence is up. So a least this scumbag is off our streets for 30 years.

        1. Wow.  Thank GAWD!  Let’s hope someone treats him like he treated the baby before he gets out. For some reason, death of a baby killer always make me smile.

  52. Here’s to hoping every parole board he ever sits in front of gets to see a poster sized photo of what he did to that poor baby. 40 years? Bullshit, he should have gotten life at the very least and if your sentenced to 40 you should have to do the WHOLE 40.
