‘A Monster Took Him’

‘A Monster Took Him,’ Family Speaks Out About Suspect Accused Of Beating Infant To Death:

Man jailed after infant’s death:

Said monster, Steven Shaw

41-year-old Steven Shaw of Coldwater, Michigan, is only 5 feet (1.5m) tall. His small stature hasn’t stopped him from being the worst kind of monster. In the past Shaw was accused of the rape of a 13-year-old girl and choking his own 7-year-old daughter. He escaped justice both times. He’s also been accused of abusing his ex-wife but charges were dropped. Unfortunately, growing up in an abusive household I know how that scenario plays out. Doesn’t mean the abuser isn’t guilty. This time Shaw is accused of killing his girlfriend’s 7-month-old son, Carson Burm.

Shaw allegedly beat Carson to death while the mother was at work. Shaw was also said to have been watching over the mother’s 2-year-old daughter as well. While the mother was at work Shaw is said to have shaken the baby and struck his head against a hard object. The force was enough to snap the baby’s spine.

Of course Shaw tried the usual BS when abusers try to cover their crime…

Medics found the baby on the floor, turning blue and unresponsive. Shaw told the responder he had laid the baby in its crib but moved it to the doorway when it stopped breathing.

Of course the hospital and coroner found out otherwise. Do they think that if they’re story is convincing enough that no one will check? Police also found a hole punched in the wall so take that for what you will.

CPS was said to have visited the home 3 times but did not take Carson away. My friend, who we’ll call CW, works for a state child protection agency. I asked CW why wouldn’t CPS interfere if they’ve been their 3 times. CW told me that a judge would more than likely not agree to have a child removed from a home unless there were visible marks and bruises. At the time Carson was only treated for what one doctor called an ear-infection even though they noted that there was blood in Carson’s ear.

Shaw seems like one of those guys who tries to make up for his stature by trying to be a tough guy, but like most tough guys it seems he only takes his violent rage out on victims smaller than himself. I wonder how that’s going to work out for him in jail.

In the meantime Carson’s father has set up a memorial fund on GoFundMe which can be found here. They are in need of money to help pay for Carson’s funeral. Please give if you can.

If you live in the Coldwater area there will also be a fundraiser for Carson.

Family said a fundraiser will be held on Saturday, June 7 at the Butler Motor Speedway, located at 1031 Clarendon Rd. 49082. The race will start at 7 p.m.

Journey Ann was not in the system

Boyd and Payne

Couple charged in beating death of 1-year-old Bartow County girl:

This is an older story but I think it still deserves attention.

I’m not usually a fan of nontraditional names but Journey Ann is a beautiful name for a beautiful baby. Unfortunately 1-year-old Journey Ann Cowart’s own journey in this life was cut short. Journey Ann’s mother, Brandy Ann Boyd, and her boyfriend, Austin Payne, both of Cartersville, Georgia, were arrested for Journey Ann’s death.

The coroner’s autopsy revealed that Journey Ann had been systemically beaten prior to her death. Blunt force trauma was the cause of death and the autopsy also showed that she had been beaten previously with bone fractures that never healed properly. If she hadn’t been killed Journey Ann probably would have grown up handicapped due to all the injuries she sustained.

What really grabbed me about this story is this quote from the article…

Investigators said they had not received reports of child abuse in the home from either the Division of Family and Children’s Services or family members.

I don’t know why that struck a chord in me but it got me to thinking about how a lot of child abusers are good at hiding things. How many stories have been posted here where the suspects either moved around to avoid detection or hid behind home schooling? A lot of them are eventually found out but too many of them go undetected until it’s too late.

The police and child protection agencies can’t be everywhere at once so we as citizens need to be their eyes and ears. Maybe you don’t know how to report child abuse. Do you call police, family services, your local crime stoppers? My answer to that is yes to any of the above. I asked someone who works for a child protection agency at what point should someone call in a suspected case of child abuse. They told me if you have any suspicion of child abuse to notify someone. It doesn’t have to be physical signs like bruises or cuts. In case you don’t know who to contact I found a list of each agency in each US state and how they can be contacted. As the old adage goes if you see something say something. However let me also add that you shouldn’t go looking for child abuse everywhere you look. If you look for abuse everywhere you’ll see abuse everywhere whether it exists or not.

I’ll have that link posted on the sidebar as well.

Florida Breeder suffocates infant son. Media says Xbox to blame

Dad kills crying toddler son so he could play Xbox:

Cody Wygant

24-year-old Cody Wygant of Homosassa, Florida, is accused of killing his 16-month-old son, Daymeon Wygant. The media would have you believe it was so he could play Xbox uninterrupted. Personally I don’t think that’s why at all but first let’s get some details.

Wygant allegedly killed his son by holding the baby’s nose and mouth shut for 3 to 4 minutes until he became lethargic. Why did he do this? The baby was crying of course. How dare babies cry? After putting his son in a playpen he went and played Xbox and watched TV. He didn’t check on his son for five hours and when he did Dayemon was unresponsive and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Did he think that cutting off the baby’s breathing would put him gently to sleep? Is that what his parents did because that would explain a lot. Now I’m not excusing anything this assclown did. I think it wouldn’t have mattered if he was watching football, talking on the phone, or listening to music, he probably would have killed his son no matter what he interrupted. He’s a murderer but he’s not James Sargent. Although ‘they’ should restrict Wygant’s airways for 4 minutes at a time and see how long he lasts.

Blame the killer, not the game.

Aniston Walker died from ‘homicidal violence’ according to autopsy

Andrea Walker and her late daughter Aniston.

Baby Aniston died due to ‘homicidal violence,’ medical examiner says:

For those of you who may not remember. 7-week-old Aniston Walker disappeared from her Memphis, Tennessee, home back in January. Her egg donor, Andrea Walker said that she left the baby home alone with her 3-year-old while she took her 5-year-old to school. Aniston’s body was found more than a month after her disappearance and her mother was charged with murder.

Recently the Medical Examiner’s office released the details of Aniston’s autopsy. It doesn’t specify a cause of death other than saying that Aniston died from homicidal violence.

“Internal examination reveals no evidence of injuries or disease that would result in death. Toxicology analysis results are consistent with postmortem changes; neither drugs nor medications were identified,” Shelby County Medical Examiner Dr. Karen Chancellor wrote in the autopsy report. “In my opinion, this death resulted from intentional violence of undetermined type. The manner of death is homicide.”

I compared this story before to being somewhat similar to the Casey Anthony debacle. I hope with this cause of death being somewhat unspecified that we won’t have a repeat outcome.

UPDATE 3/7/2017: Andrea Walker has pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and received a suspended sentence of four years and four years probation. It’s more than likely that due to the fact that medical examiners could not pinpoint an exact cause of death that this deal was offered.

Utah Breeder accused of killing 7 newborns

Police arrest woman after finding 7 dead babies in cardboard boxes in garage of Utah home:

Police find remains of seven babies at Utah home:

7 Babies Found Dead in Utah Home; Woman Arrested:

Megan Huntsman

Police in Pleasant Grove, Utah, have arrested 39-year-old Megan Huntsman for allegedly killing 7 newborns that she gave birth to between 1996 and 2006. One of the bodies was found in a house that Huntsman used to live in by her estranged husband. He called police who found 6 more bodies. The causes of death have not been disclosed as of yet.

Now I know what some of you are thinking. In Mormon controlled Utah it must be next to impossible to get an abortion. Not so. From everything that I’ve read abortions in Utah are quite available.

What I don’t get is how was this incubator pregnant seven times and gave birth, I would imagine at home, seven times and not one person she knew could put one and one together? Obviously she can’t use the ‘I didn’t even know I was pregnant excuse’. That may work with one pregnancy but not seven. Technically, if the charges are true, she is a serial killer.

Utah does have the death penalty but only for aggravated murder. I think this more than meets the definition. What do you think? Should she be given the death penalty for the murder of seven of her own newborns if found guilty?

Hand sanitizer gets rid of all sorts of germs, like special needs children

Belle Chasse mom booked with fatal poisoning of her 17-month-old son:

Erika Wigstrom

Usually when there’s a story about a Breeder injecting their kids with some foreign substance it entails Munchhausen By Proxy syndrome. Not this time. In this instance the sole purpose of the injection was to kill.

17-month-old Lucas Ruiz of Belle Chase, Louisiana, was born with Down’s Syndrome and three holes in his heart. I can only imagine the emotional and financial strain that has to put on a family. It seems that Lucas’ Breeders wanted nothing to do with that strain. Lucas’ incubator, 20-year-old Erika Wigstrom, has been arrested in the alleged poisoning death of her son. Wigstrom is accused of injecting an alcohol based hand sanitizer into Lucas. She calls it a mercy killing and investigators say that she has no remorse. Allegedly it was not the first time she tried to kill him. Police are also saying that Wigstrom has confessed of giving Lucas perfume in order to try to kill him. But wait, there’s more.

Lucas’ sperm donor, 20-year-old Cesar Ruiz, is already in jail for allegedly pouring run into his son’s feeding tube while Lucas was in the hospital in 2012 which was also featured on this site. Lucas was only two-months-old at the time.

Maybe after two attempts at trying to kill your son God/The Universe/Fate/etc. is trying to tell you something. Something like this child needs his parents to love and provide for him no matter what ailments he may have.

Wigstrom is calling this a mercy killing. There was no mercy here, only arrogance. There are certain medical instances where a mercy killing may be applicable. This was not one of them.

She has been charged with capital murder and can be eligible for the death penalty. Hopefully if she does get the death penalty ‘they’ll’ use one of those lethal injection drugs that cause convicts to burst into flames.

Once again thanks to Helen for the tip.

The Bad Boyfriend and the Attack of the Killer Shower

Joshua Howard

Police: 2-year-old assault victim dies, mom’s boyfriend remains in jail:

First responders were called to the Portland, Oregon, motel room of 28-year-old Joshua Howard because his girlfriend’s two-year-old son was unconscious. Howard allegedly told police that he was giving the boy a shower and left him alone for a moment when he heard a thump. Except that the police say the boy was dry and had bruising on his head. After the boy was rushed to the hospital it was determined that he was brain-dead and eventually died from his trauma. Doctors say that the boy had multiple injuries including a fractured jaw and skull.

Eventually Howard is said to have changed his story and allegedly admitted to police that he assaulted the child.

First he said he “tossed or dropped” the victim in the bathroom and was upset because the boy had thrown up on the bed and was crying, according to court documents.

Police said he then later admitted to dragging the boy into the bathroom and throwing him with a lot of force into the front of the toilet.

I don’t get why so many violent assholes think that babies aren’t supposed to puke and cry. A number of years ago I was dating a girl who had a son about 2-years-old. I’d be lying if I said I was a fan of the kid but I dealt with it. One weekend we went on a trip and on the way back the boy let a torrent of vomit fly in my new truck it would have made Linda Blair proud. Was I mad? You better believe it. Did I strike a child that wasn’t even mine? Of course not. After being angry for about a second my common sense kicked in and then I was more concerned for the child’s well-being. Even though I wasn’t fond of the kid I didn’t want to wish any harm on him. Luckily it was just car sickness.

Back to the story at hand though the mother of the child allegedly said that Howard had hit the boy before but she didn’t intervene because she thought that would only make it worse. What? That makes no sense whatsoever. Ladies, if a man hits any of your kids he should be fearing for his life because of what you may do. At the very least you call the cops and you get you and your kids out of there. There is no man worth that.

Aniston Walker’s body found, Andrea Walker arrested

Andrea Walker and her late daughter Aniston.

Baby found in ditch confirmed to be Aniston Walker:

MOM OF MISSING TENN. BABY ARRESTED BY POLICE:

Yesterday Memphis police believe they have found the body of 7-week-old Aniston Walker who was reported missing weeks ago. The baby’s body was found in a ditch wearing the onesie that she was last described wearing. Police indicate that the body had been there for a while.

Aniston’s Breeder, Andrea Walker, originally told police that she left Aniston with her 3-year-old while she walked her 5-year-old to school and when she returned Aniston was gone. Andrea Walker has been charged with first degree murder.

I started taking an interest in stories like this during the Casey Anthony debacle. I felt there were similar stories that demanded just as much if not more attention. Having said that let me say something to anyone out there thinking they can pull something off like this, you can’t. Casey Anthony is what’s known as a statistical anomaly. She was the exception to the rule. You can’t just make a baby disappear like that, you will be found out and you will be caught.

Instead of taking the coward’s way in dealing with your problems with parenthood how about reaching out instead. Reach out to your family or to a charity organization or some other resource designed to assist people in those situations. Murdering the most defenseless of our society helps no one and only plants the seed of the idea in other cowards.

Bad Dad bashes son to death at cricket match, shot dead by police

Luke Batty, 11, dies in horrific attack by his father at Tyabb cricket oval

Horrific murder after cricket training

Online tributes flow for Luke Batty who was killed at cricket training in Tyabb

Luke Batty, 11, dies in horrific attack by his father at Tyabb cricket oval

Luke Batty (11) was horrifically taken from this world by his own father Greg Anderson (54). He was allegedly bashed to death with a cricket bat during cricket training at the Tyabb Cricket Club in VIC. As police tried to defend the young boy, the killer charged at them with a knife that he had concealed on him. After trying to persuade the murderer to drop the knife and spraying him with capsicum foam with no effect, they were forced to shoot him.

Despite the valiant and courageous efforts of paramedics, young Luke could not be saved. Tributes have brimmed forth on Twitter and Facebook for the young lad, who was described as sports-loving, effervescent and funny. His mum, Rosie Batty, had spoken about Luke’s killer, saying that he had had mental issues and homelessness. She had been separated from him for a while, and on the day of cricket practice, Luke had asked her if he could spend a few more minutes with his Dad because he didn’t get to see him very often. Little did he know that this request would cost him his life.

Police are still asking witnesses to come forward and speak with them to work out what exactly went down that day. The killing took place shortly after practice had broken up, so they think there was still quite a few people hanging around. Several children had witnessed the killer beating Luke with the bat and then stabbing him with a knife. No child should ever have to see someone being murdered, especially one of their friends.

The only small solace in this tragic tale is that the killer got pepper-foamed before he was shot dead. Now he will feel the burn over and over again in whatever place awaits him on the other side.

Rest in peace, young Luke

Beautiful, heavenly Luke. Your radiant smile will light up the heavens for sure.

Alfreda Giedrojc

Grandmother pleads not guilty in baby’s sledgehammer death:

Grandmother used sledgehammer, knife to kill baby, prosecutors allege:

Alfreda Giedrojc, Grandmother, Bludgeoned Baby With Sledgehammer, Slit Throat: Police:

Most parents have no problem with their children’s grandparents babysitting for them, happy even for the break away from the kids with someone they know they can trust. Unfortunately, trust can and will be broken. In this case, it took an infant girl’s life.

Back in October near The Windy City (Oak Lawn to be exact), Joel Summers left his precious 6 month old daughter, Vivian, with his mother-in-law so he could help his father-in-law with some repairs on a nearby neighbor’s home. While they were gone, Alfreda had plans of her own for her granddaughter.

After her father left the home, Alfreda took little Vivian off the couch where she was sleeping peacefully and placed her on the floor. She then went to a closet and retrieved a sledgehammer, yes I said sledgehammer. The sledgehammer was placed there by Alfreda the evening before (premeditated?). She picked up the sledgehammer and allegedly hit little Vivian on the head and on the body repeatedly. When Vivian continued to move about and cry, the evil grandmother (if you even want to call her that), went to the kitchen and retrieved a carving knife. The evil, sadistic witch then proceeded to pick Vivian up, hold her and slit her throat. MY HEART IS BREAKING. Upon the men returning to the house, they made the horrible discovery. They immediately called police. Vivian was pronounced dead at the hospital the same day.

What a brutal, awful way to die. There is nothing more innocent, defenseless, and precious than a baby. My son is 7 months old. I can’t (and don’t want to) even imagine how anyone could do such a horrendous thing to an infant. My son is constantly giving me toothless grins, precious baby giggles, cuddling and “kissing” me. He depends on me for everything. How anyone could take total advantage of someone’s defenselessness and innocence is beyond my comprehension. It makes my stomach just turn inside out to think of the pain that little girl went through. To think of how scared she was. To think of her screams of agony and fear. It is just horrible.

Alfreda was arrested and held without bail. She is being charged with four counts of murder. Her attorney, public defender Michael Wilson, asked and received permission from the judge to have an interpreter present in meetings with Alfreda. She was born in Poland and speaks very little English. In November, Alfreda pleaded not guilty. Hopefully justice will be served and she will die in prison, alone. I pray for peace and comfort for the parents of that sweet girl.
