“The Hills Have Eyes” – Australian style

The Australian families that hold dark secrets of incest and abuse

The case of incest and depravity which came to rest in the hills of a quiet country town

And we’re back to the cricket. Real life has been calling and in between work and study, there just hasn’t been the time for the writing. This story is about a month or so old and has been featured on The Dreamin’ Demon, but because it happened in Australia, I’m going to cover it here.

A massive inbred family had been discovered in a hidden valley, southwest of Sydney. Four generations of brothers and sisters, fathers and daughters, and uncles and nieces had been mating with each other, producing all in all 40 adults and children. Among the children was a five year old girl whose parents were the only ones who weren’t brother and sister. The discovery of the inbreds has been described as one of the worst cases of incest to have ever been made public.

Police discovered the clan, who go by the name of Colt, after reports were made about dirty children living in the hills. They were often seen with the clanswomen at the shops and did not seem to attend any sort of school. When the cops managed to track down where the children and women were coming from, they discovered a squalid settlement made up of rotting caravans and filthy sheds. Inside, the stoves and cooking appliances were caked in dirt and filth, rotting vegetables lay in a broken fridge. Exposed wiring and a chainsaw were accessible to the children. There was no sewerage connection, electricity or running water. Oh, and a kangaroo was sleeping on one of kids’ beds.

One of the sheds where the clan lived

One of the sheds where the clan lived

The Colt clan were made up of Betty (46), Martha (33), and Rhonda (47). Betty slept with her brother Charlie and two of her daughters. Genetic tests showed that Betty’s children and grandchildren were born from related parents. The family has been traced back to a set of great grandparents who were brother and sister, and the family has self-perpetuated from there.

The  younger children were affected as follows:

Betty’s children: Bobby (15) couldn’t walk properly, had skin issues and needed dental work. His speech was unintelligible and he wet the bed constantly. Learning was at kindergarten level; Billy (14) underweight, stunted growth, hearing and sight problems, unintelligible speech, learning difficulties and unable to read or count; Kimberley (14) and her daughter Raylene were underweight and didn’t know how to wash or brush their teeth; Brian (12) had no concept of hygiene and extensive dental problems. Betty’s older daughter Tammy (27) had three children, one of which had died of genetic deformities associated with inbreeding. Her children had been fathered by her brother Derek (25). All in all, Betty had 13 children, some fathered by her brother and some fathered by her own father Tim.

Martha’s children: Albert (15) and Jed (14) both had issues with speech, hygiene and dental problems; Ruth (7) was neglected and malnourished and she didn’t know what toilet paper was or how to use it (cue itchy feeling). Her sister Nadia (9) told of sexual involvement with her brothers (no doubt encouraged by the inbred breeders). The brothers had tied Nadia and their 13 year old niece-cousin to a tree naked. Martha’s children may have also been fathered by Tim.

12 children were removed from the compound. The youngest, who was only aged 5 years, was the only child to not have related parents. Perhaps it was Uncle ‘Roo that was her father? Or a hapless backpacker who inadvertently wandered into the campsite? The other 11 children had their inbreeding confirmed by geneticists who took mouth swabs from all of the people living at the camp.

Despite their horrible start to life, the children are now doing well in foster care. Some have been placed in treatment programs for the sexualised behaviour that their aunty-mums and daddy-uncles encouraged. All have made progress with schooling and hygiene. The aunty-mums have taken varying degrees of responsibility for the incest and sexual abuse of the children. Except for Betty, who for some reason still has supervised contact with her children-siblings. She denies any wrongdoing and her lawyer has disputed the court’s findings with the genetic testing.

So much WTF. I told Trench it’d be a good one.

Starvation and filth in Adelaide

Officials describe neglect case as one of the worst

Parents accused of starving child appear in court

Couple charged over failing to feed son

Thanks go to KH for the tip on this one, and to Trench for passing it on to me. I have been a bit busy with starting my Master’s degree, so this makes a suitable change of pace.

A couple from Adelaide, South Australia (23 and 27) have been charged with child neglect after their 4 year old son was found to be weighing only 8kg (17.6 pounds). The house was also a complete mess, with piles of used nappies and rubbish everywhere. The stench of the house could be smelled from the street, according to authorities. When the boy arrived at the local hospital, his condition was so bad that some of the medical staff who were treating him, required counselling.

Gross, nasty filth

Gross, nasty filth

Last year in March, Families SA were alerted by the family’s neighbours to concerns about the kiddo’s welfare. However when officials spotted the boy, they saw that he was fine. And then, because an NGO was involved with the family, Families SA saw no need to continue investigating the family, according to news sources. This case has prompted an internal investigation by Families SA into how it handled the case. A Child Safety expert has blamed a lack of communication leaving children vulnerable.

The breeders have been to court, where they were charged with criminal neglect and failing to provide food. The male (27) also had a charge of aggravated assault tacked on. They have been remanded in custody.

The young kiddo is now in the care of Families SA.

Justice for Quinten Facebook page

Obituary for Quinten

I happened upon this story, as I tend to do when I trawl the ‘net for other things. I shared a link with Trench, who then offered me a CNN news link. Unfortunately, this seems to be the only “legit” news link I have come across, which is very sad. We have had to rely on all the sites that Quinten’s sister have published on to get more information. There are photos of the living conditions that the boys were forced to endure, plus photos of Quinten and his brother Cameron.

This story is about a sister, Valerie Wood-Harber, who was brave enough to blow the whistle on the poor living conditions to which her bio breeder Michael Wood had subjected her younger brothers Cameron and Quinten. She alleges that all the housework and care of Quinten was foisted upon young Cameron. You see, Quinten has a ring chromosome disorder which caused him to be unable to care for himself, use the toilet, feed himself, walk or talk. Instead of Mr. Wood caring for his son like he should have done, it is alleged that he just gave up and allowed Quinten to become gravely ill without seeking medical help for him. It is on a grubby, pee stained couch that Quinten died at the age of 15 years, holding the hand of his best friend and brother Cameron.

When Cameron told Valerie of the poor living conditions, as well as physical and emotional abuse that their own father was subjecting them to, she made a difficult yet sensible decision – she called Child Welfare Services and sang like a canary. They promised her that they would do a home study and that everything would be okay. Three weeks passed, and nothing was done. Valerie tried her damnedest to clean the trailer up and buy food for the boys. It was all in vain. The trailer would be exactly the same way when she returned the next time. The fridge would be empty again. Cameron told her that if it weren’t for her buying groceries, they would probably starve.

Valerie had taken the boys in after a mere three days of discovering that they existed, when their father took off to work overseas. She looked after them for 4 years, right up until Quinten started having issues with living with a “stranger” and Cameron needing his dad. Valerie did not have the time nor the resources to get the boys the help they needed, so with a heavy heart, she sent them back to their dad. She couldn’t have known that this decision would have cost Quinten his life. She had begged her father to let her take the boys until he got back on his feet, but he allegedly threatened her with never seeing the boys again if she implied that he was anything less than a good father to them. He would also have her charged with kidnapping, and because she lived in the next state, it would have been a felony.

Michael Wood is currently free from prosecution, as there had been NO investigation made by social services. Quinten’s death was officially caused by pneumonia, which the coroner blamed on his ring chromosome condition. Quinten was scrawny and malnourished, but again that was blamed on his condition.

Valerie is working around the clock to see her father brought to justice and to see Oklahoma Social Services investigated for their role in Quinten’s death.

I took offence to the poor reporting skills of the journo who wrote the CNN article. It barely touched on the accusations of child abuse made by Valerie and basically made it out to be a sob story. However, it does provide more opportunities to feel contempt for Michael Wood. According to the article, Wood claimed that Quentin suffered from recurrent ear infections which antibiotics could not clear. Valerie states that Quentin never became sick when in her care. He also claimed that he went to DHS for help with Quentin (um, your daughter offered to take the boys and you nearly bit her head off with threats of kidnapping charges). DHS declined to comment on whether there was any record of Wood visiting DHS. He even went as far as to blame his imaginary friend God for Quinten’s death. No sir. You kept them in a hovel, you didn’t buy any food and you rejected your daughter’s pleas to take better care of the boys. This is squarely on you.

It is so sad that there wasn’t much more on news sites and that I had to rely on unofficial new sights. Valerie is trying hard to get her brother’s story told, and I hope by putting it on BB, that it will help.

RIP Quinten Douglas Wood.

 

Bad Parent Sighting: “Not my responsibility, mate”

8 YEAR OLD BOYS CAUGHT ATTEMPTING TO START FIRE IN EAST MAITLAND

Two child firebugs, both eight, caught in Newcastle

Eight-year-old boys caught trying to light a bushfire

We haven’t had a Bad Parent Sighting for a while. I also like to call them the alliterative term “Piss Poor Parenting”. This one was seen in the newspaper and on the news, making excuses to try to absolve himself of parental duty.

For the last couple of weeks, New South Wales has been burning. We have had severe bushfires, brought on by hot, windy and dry conditions. Some of these fires were started by natural causes such as dry lightning. Others by accident, such as hot exhaust pipes on dry grass or electricity wires arcing in strong winds. However, a few of these fires were deliberately lit.

The case I want to bring to your attention happened recently. Two 8 year old boys were caught near East Maitland in the Hunter Valley, trying to light a fire around 7.30pm. They had piled up dry grass and dead leaves and were trying to light the heap with a cigarette lighter. It was only by sheer luck that the lighter didn’t work.

Police could not press charges due to the boys’ age (age of criminal responsibility in Australia is 10 years) and released them into the care of their parents (who were obviously not caring for them as they were wandering the bush at 7.30pm at night). When interviewed by news sources, the father of one of the boys had the hide to say this:

“I have 6 kids, I can’t be following all of them around the streets all the time. It’s not my responsibility, mate.”

What the fuck. They’re YOUR children! You chose to not wear a condom or get a vasectomy and beget 6 children. You have to live with that choice. What your child did was almost attempted murder. You should be begging for forgiveness and disciplining your child.

6 kids and unwilling to care for them. Old Mate needs to stand up once in a while. Same with his missus. Get a new hobby. And no, getting drunk down at your local pub while your unsupervised litter run rampant doesn’t count as a constructive way to pass one’s time. Some suggested hobbies would be getting a job in a nuclear reactor, keeping your phone in your underwear, getting kicked in the balls, wearing tight underwear, getting cardiovascular disease or diabetes etc. See where I’m going with this?

Mother dearest of the other boy involved said that her boy will be “grounded for a week”. Yeah, that’ll show him! NOT! “Grounded” = more likely playing Xbox while Mother also goes down to the pub and drinks away her welfare check. At least she took some responsibility for him unlike the aforementioned useless Old Mate. But this lack of proper discipline and consequences is probably what led to this kid thinking he could do whatever he liked, with no consequences to his actions whatsoever.

The police involved with the case, being mandated reporters, have reported both kids to be “at risk” to DoCS (Social Services). They were unsupervised and getting into a potentially very dangerous situation because their parents couldn’t be bothered to keep an eye on them. This is a small victory for the people of Maitland, who could have lost everything because of two very silly little boys and their inept breeders. Once you get the attention of DoCS (whether you really are abusing your kids or not), it’s very hard to get them out of your life. Social services will be investigating these useless people very thoroughly.

Sorry for the long ramble, but we have had fires close to us and it was very scary. To think that people could have lost their homes and livelihoods because of poor breeding just makes my blood boil.

 

Discussion point: Should parents be held responsible for their children’s criminal actions, if the child is under the age of criminal responsibility? Perhaps some fines to diminish the breeders’ pub money might straighten them out.

Rhyming rednecks accused of selling their daughters for porn

Ronnie and Connie McCall accused of selling daughters into child porn ring

US parents allegedly sold daughters for porn

Ronnie and Connie McCall. What are the odds of a couple having rhyming names?

Ronnie and Connie McCall.

When I hear of couples with rhyming names, I can’t help but laugh. What are the odds of having rhyming names? At least it’s a bright spot in this otherwise awful tale. That and the ubiquitous mocking of the suspects’ mugshots. Man, that is a hard 40. Miss Connie needs to lay off the Jack Daniels.

Ronnie Lee (61) and Connie Sue (40) stand accused of selling their three daughters (12, 15, and 17) to a child pornography ring. The girls allege that they were forced to commit sexual acts against their will – with the full knowledge and permission of their parents.

The alleged actions of Ronnie and Connie came to attention after authorities investigated the couple for child neglect. One of the girls had lice in her hair and on her body, flea bites, ring worm and rotten teeth. A fourth daughter (5) who had not been sold to child pornographers (possibly because she wasn’t old enough to bleed) was also found to have rotten teeth. An officer from Johnson County said that her teeth were black and were riddled with cavities. The young girl was also in a lot of pain.

When the older children were investigated about the extent of their breeders’ neglect, that’s when they told authorities about the child porn ring and the permitted sexual abuse and rape. They also said that their breeders regularly abused bath salts. Oh, so that explains the melty faces and squinty eyes in the mugshots! A lesson right there, folks. If you don’t want to lose your youthful looks, don’t smoke bath salts. I prefer to put them in my bath, personally.

Not surprisingly, it was also found that the trailer in which the family dwelt was absolutely filthy and deplorable. I guess a busy schedule of smoking bath salts and pimping out your underage children doesn’t allow much time for trivial things like cleaning your house or visiting the dentist.

Ronnie allegedly took the girls over to South Carolina for a “business trip”.  The “john” involved who was accused of raping the girls has committed suicide, according to local papers.

Ronnie had the gall to plead not guilty to enabling the sexual abuse of his daughters, while Connie is due to appear in court on Wednesday. How the fuck can that seedy old bastard plead “not guilty”? After all he put his daughters through? The old fuck will cark it soon enough.

The girls are now under the care of child services and authorities are hoping for them to be adopted out together.

I can see why these two didn’t try to sell porn featuring themselves. They’d never make a single buck. Is there even a market for porn featuring a melty-faced hag and a squinty-eyed old fuck? Who knows.

Second Life players didn’t give their child a Second Chance

Second Life obsessed parents starve two-year-old child

Couple ‘living in fantasy world’ accused of starving girl

Parents ‘were so immersed in fantasy video game world where their avatars married and had jobs they let real-life daughter, 2, nearly starve to death’

Mark Knapp and Elizabeth Pester

Mark Knapp and Elizabeth Pester

This is the second story I’ve heard of parents neglecting their children in favour of Second Life. I saw a feature on Dr. Phil (back in my HSC days) on this game, with a 13 year old girl addicted to it. To me, it looks sort of like The Sims, only a bit more sophisticated. I don’t know much about the game, so I typed the term “Second Life” into urbandictionary.com (where I do all of my serious research) and got this:

“Second Life:

A game where desperate people with no lives or friends get to live out their dreams of social acceptance and sex. The vast majority of Second Life players are unattractive and socially awkward.”

Well, there you have it. Put that definition together with the mugshot and it explains a lot.

Mark Knapp (48) and his blushing bride Elizabeth Pester (33) stand accused of neglecting their 2 year old daughter in favour of looking after their Second Life avatars. The couple were charged with child neglect and abuse after it was found that their daughter only weighed 5.8 kg (13 lbs). She was rushed to hospital in a severe state of malnutrition. On top of being severely underweight, she couldn’t walk or talk, and the back of her head was flat.

When the cops came around to arrest the couple, they found them playing Second Life. Mark asked the officers whether they were here because their daughter had died. NO THEY WERE NOT! They should thank their fucking lucky stars that she wasn’t dead! They were so absorbed in their crappy little game that they didn’t even know their daughter was alive or dead.

The couple were known to authorities, with their daughter being taken away in 2012 for being underweight. She was returned (wtf?) on the condition that she was to be weighed weekly to ensure that she reached a healthy weight. The weigh-ins did not happen! Big fat FAIL.

Elizabeth allegedly rescheduled her daughter’s appointments and requested that the appointments be scheduled for the afternoon, citing that she worked as a DJ and needed her sleep in the mornings. The DJ gig, as it turns out, belongs to her Second Life avatar, DJ Syn. The immersion was that deep, she thought her avatar was actually her. She and Mark also had a virtual wedding and she shared pictures of it on her Facebook, saying

” THE MOST AMAZING NIGHT A BRIDE COULD HAVE I WONT TRADE IT FOR THE WORLD!!!”

The silliness of this would be so funny, if a kid wasn’t near death due to the idiocy of her breeders. She actually tried to pass off Second Life as her own life?? Her real life must be so boring.

Here’s a picture of their avatars (for a comparison to their actual mugshots). The top one is from their fake wedding:

Alter-egos: In the online virtual world Second Life, Pester's blonde avatar (left) worked as a DJ, and the couple had a wedding

You’re kidding yourselves if you think you actually look like that.

DJ

Pester’s fake job as DJ Syn

The ghastly gamers are being held in Tulsa county jail on US$50, 000 each. And no, that’s not in Simoleons. Their little girl is still in a critical condition, trying to regain her real life.

Imagine how good this family could be living if Mark and Elizabeth put in as much effort into their real life as they did building up their Second Life avatars?

PS: If you get the chance, look up Second Life trolling videos on YouTube. These players go to pieces over nothing!

Boys pulled from house full of cat shit, can only speak in grunts

Boys found in Denver house full of cat faeces spoke in grunts

http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/suspects-in-child-abuse-of-four-boys-found-in-filthy-conditions-have-faced-similar-charges-before

Here’s a horrifying tale, just in time for Hallowe’en. Try not to scream when you see the mugshot.

Wayne Sperling, 66, and Lorinda Bailey, 35, are charged with multiple counts of child abuse.

A dirty wizard and his dimwitted apprentice

Four boys were pulled from a filthy house in Denver, CO. They were filthy, three of them were still in nappies and could only speak in grunts, according to reports. Their breeders, Wayne Sperling (66) and Lorinda Bailey (35) have been charged with multiple counts of child abuse. They are repeat offenders, with charges dating back as far as 2006.

The latest act of foul foolishness was discovered when Lorinda took the youngest boy (2) to the doctor for an apparent cut on his head. The doctor, not being stupid unlike the two numbskulls up there, also noticed suspicious bruising behind the boy’s right ear consistent with pinching and called the police. The doctor also noticed that the child smelt like cigarette smoke, was unwashed and his speech was far behind what was normal for a 2 year old.

When the police and Denver social services turned up to the house, they observed that three other children aged 4, 5, and 6, all appeared to be the same size and two of the children were only wearing nappies. That’s not the worst of it…

The house was redolent with the stench of a decomposing animal, so badly that the police couldn’t stand to be inside. They couldn’t locate the source of the smell, because every surface inside the house was covered in flies. That’s a fuckload of flies, and that judgement is something coming from someone who lives in the Land of the Flies. Lorinda, the foul temptress of the faeces, had the gall to deny that the state of the house was dirty or unhygienic, adding (and I quote)

“The feces looks like human but it’s the cats”

Oh, that makes it all better then…NOT!!! Are you fucking kidding me? Cat poo contains many harmful parasites, and can cause toxoplasmosis in young children. It can also cause worms, plus it contains all the other nasty germs that you find in human shit such as e-coli and salmonella. Under the boys’ bunk beds, the feline faeces was 1 – 2 inches thick on the floor. There was also cat piss and dead flies on the floor where the boys would play. Lorinda was allegedly living in another unit away from the boys but claimed to see them every day. Interesting. She thinks that cat shit/piss and dead flies everywhere aren’t unhygienic, yet refuses to live in the mess. And then consigns her children to fester in that filth.

This isn’t the first ride at the rodeo for these rednecks. They were charged in 2006 and 2009 with child abuse, with the latter resulting in the kids being taken. So why the fuck were they given back to these creeps?

Shame on you, Colorado. And to think that I wanted to stay at the Stanley Hotel at Estes Park (where The Shining was filmed) and go skiing in Aspen, as well as see the Adirondacks. Lift your game, otherwise you won’t be seeing my tourist dollars!

And please outlaw incest, it looks like that father-daughter relationship is a little too friendly…

Coroner investigating parents’ role in death of obese boy

Inquest examines parents’ role in obese boy’s death

Obese boy’s death examined by coroner

3 years ago, a 10 year old boy from Newcastle died from complications related to morbid obesity. At only 7 years old, he weighed 50kg (110lbs) and had a body mass index double of what it should have been. A NSW coroner is now investigating his parents for possible child abuse/neglect and the role they played in their son’s decline and eventual demise.

As far back as 2007, the boy had been in and out of hospital with obesity related problems, and his parents had been provided with a weight management plan. Yet he put on an additional 6 kg shortly after leaving John Hunter hospital.

He had been the subject of several reports to DoCS and other authorities because of his parents’ drug use and his obesity-related health issues for which his parents refused to seek medical help. The boy suffered from sleep apnoea (like snoring, but the boy stopped breathing for short periods of time) and appointments were made for him to have his tonsils and adenoids removed, and various other weight management specialists.  The inquest heard that many of the appointments were missed and that the boy never got the help he needed.

His parents also were slack on his school attendance. In his short education, the boy had missed 103 days of the 2010 school year. The parents blamed his sleep apnoea (yeah cos it’s totally the kid’s fault), but when they were threatened with criminal action, they promised to improve his attendance rate.

The exact circumstances surrounding the boy’s death are unclear, but he was found slumped over on a lounge before he stopped breathing while en route to the hospital. After 12 minutes without oxygen, he had suffered a massive brain injury and was put on life support, where he died a few days later.

Now, I know this may be a touchy subject for the American audience. But here goes…letting your child get so fat that they have trouble breathing IS child abuse! The kid wasn’t out buying the wrong sort of foods, this was 100% on the parents! The parents were shoveling garbage into their kid, enabling the bad habits and then trying to cover it up by keeping him away from doctors and school. Just like how starving a child can lead to malnutrition and other health issues, feeding a kid McDonald’s and KFC everyday will also cause major health issues.

This boy’s death was 1000% preventable.

The inquest continues.

Murder, Fraud, And Possible Gender Discrimination

There is so much that needs to be said about this case and I am curious as to whether anyone else believes that there is some kind of gender discrimination here. But I’m getting ahead of myself. This is just the introduction. Onto the case. Unfortunately, just as last time, this case happened in Florida as well. This case is a bit more confusing than most, but still horrific. It reminds me of the Casey Anthony case. And I don’t know if it’s gender discrimination or what, but there is definitely something wrong going on with this case. 

Dontrell K. Melvin was once a happy, healthy baby boy. Around July, 2011, he was 5 months old–almost 6 months. He disappeared that month. His mother, Brittney Sierra, claimed that she reported the child as missing immediately. She said that her boyfriend at the time, Calvin Melvin, took their son on a walk and she phoned police immediately upon his returning without Dontrell. Court documents do show that the police met with her in July, 2011, but the police officers say that they do not specifically remember why she called the police.

However, knowing her son was “missing”, Sierra applied for and received food stamps and other benefits with Dontrell’s name listed as a dependent. In one she claimed near December 2011 that was involved with getting Christmas toys for children, it was claimed that Dontrell was 9 and a half months old. this is a little bit more than suspicious. Why she didn’t continue to phone the police as her child was missing, and then why she claimed him fraudulently on some benefits programs does not per se speak of an innocent mind. 

Calvin Melvin denied the claims that Brittney Sierra had made, pointing the finger at her and saying that he didn’t do anything and that Sierra was crazy, cutting herself and saying that she didn’t “want the fucking baby anymore”. Sierra responded telling police of how Calvin could suffocate the child. But when asked where the child could be, it was Calvin’s location that was correct. He said that the child could be in the backyard of their former home and even gave a diagram to police. It was there that little Dontrell’s skeletal remains were found buried. Both parents have been arrested for crimes such as child neglect and child cruelty. Calvin was given a harsher charge and also two charges of falsifying statements to police. 

The medical examiner confirmed that the skeletal remains were Dontrell’s, and the death was ruled a homicide by unknown violent means. Both parents plead not guilty to the charges. Recently, Sierra has not only had her charges reduced, but she has also been released on bail. Her lawyer fought hard for this because she is pregnant with her fourth child. The other two children are currently in state care. This whole incident started when there was an anonymous CPS report of Sierra smoking marijuana and verbally abusing her children. When the CPS social worker showed up to investigate, there were two children instead of three, and that’s where all of this began.

I’m really upset that this woman is being released from jail. She not only failed to continually report her child–her baby–missing so that anyone who would hear her would take her seriously and her child would be found, but she also fraudulently received benefits because she used her dead child as a dependent when he obviously wasn’t there. Loving parents generally don’t do that. They generally care about their children”s well being to the point where they’d start asking questions and demanding answers if their child could not be found and if the child just disappeared one day while the father was allegedly out walking with the child. Loving parents don’t wait 18 months (!!!) until CPS comes along and notices a child missing, ignoring the fact. They just don’t. 

So here we have a child who is dead, a mother who did nothing about anything that happened to her child and maybe even participated in causing it and she is out with a tracker connected to her ankle because she is pregnant with her fourth child. Oh, and did I mention that she is afraid that the child will be taken by the state? Imagine that! Sorry lady, but who knows what will happen if you keep this baby. They might go “missing” too and you may not report it until God-knows-when!

Now, I know I don’t have all of the facts that the court has. I can obviously only go on the information that I am given. However, in this case, I have so many unanswered questions and am so confused by our “justice” system. These two people though will more than likely be known in the court of the people, so hopefully no matter how this case turns out, they are closely monitored for the rest of their lives. This should never have happened. Ever.

SA sperm flinger goes to jail after neglecting his diabetic daughter to death

SA dad jailed over fatal neglect

Parents deny killing teenage daughter

Richard Edward (50), a South Australian sperm slinger, has been jailed for allowing his 14 year old diabetic daughter Dawn to die. Her incubator Debra Marlene Edward (54) has avoided jail.

It is alleged that Dawn weighed only 28 kg when she died in August 2009. On top of having Type 1 diabetes, she was apparently physically disabled, which would explain why she could not get to food or a doctor on her own. Her cause of death was hyperglycemia and dehydration.

According to the judge presiding over the case, Dawn was very ill in the week before she died. Yet her breeders did nothing to help her.

Not that this has anything to do with the case, but the breeders were intellectually disabled, as well as their five children including Dawn. The sperm slinger was controlling and domineering, while the incubator was apathetic, choosing to spend time in her room watching TV.  He made all the decisions, while the incubator regretted not standing up to her husband enough. Umm, how hard can it be to stand up to someone with a maximum IQ of 70?

The sperm slinger Richard was charged with mere manslaughter and was sentenced to a pitiful 4 years and six months, with a non parole period of 3 years and 7 months. The useless incubator Debra was placed on a 3 year good behaviour bond, after suspending a 3 year jail period.

These people should never have been allowed to breed. There must have been signs that they could not live independently or look after one child, let alone 5. Not to mention that whatever disability they had, it was obviously genetic for all five of their kids to be disabled too.

RIP Dawn.
