Children Found on the Road
Police Think “Mom” Struck Toddler
Woman Struck Toddler with Stool Before Leaving Him on Highway

Now, we always hear about meth and the hell it brings on the kids of the parents using it. Not that it helps much, but at least meth is illegal.
It seems on February 28th, in Calvert City, Kentucky, my old stomping grounds, there was a 911 call made reporting two small children along the side of the interstate. Police went to investigate the reports. At about 10:30pm an officer came across 2 year old Jeremiah Austin Palmer lying in the passing lane with a serious head injury, he had a laceration to the back of his head. About 50 yards away on the other side of the median they found 29 year old Cynthia Palmer and her 5 year old son Caleb.
When the officer talked to the whacked-out freak she informed him that she had snorted bath salts and had begun hallucinating while driving with her kids. She then pulled over and picked them both up and was packing them across the road when she dropped the 2 year old and that was how he hit his head. Of course there was no explanation as to why she walked off and left him lying in the passing lane on a dark frigging interstate!
The toddler was airlifted to Kosair’s in Louisville where he had to have surgery because part of his brain was exposed, Caleb was taken by CPS, and the drugged out bio-mom is charged with wanton endangerment, first-degree assault, public intoxication, aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. No charge on possession of the drug itself because bath salts are legal!!
Out of curiosity I googled bath salts. Evidently, it’s the latest craze on the drug scene. It’s comparable to meth, only legal. It’s known to cause hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heart rates and suicidal thoughts. Just what we need, a legal way for people to act more moronic and scream the bath salts made me do it!!
If choosing to get high and drive with her babies wasn’t bad enough the police no longer believe she dropped little Austin. The doctor told officers that the depth of Austin’s skull fractures indicated he had been hit on the head with a blunt object. “She said this is not at all consistent with a child being dropped,” Officer Green testified.
The officers talked to Caleb about what happened and according to him the birth-vessel thought there was a bomb in the car and that’s why she pulled over. He said he tried to tell her it wasn’t real… How sad is it that the responsible, clear-thinking individual in this situation is 5 years old?? He’s raising his “mother”!! Sadly, it looks like he’s used to this kind of shit from her!
Caleb also said that his mother thought Austin was a “demon” or “evil spirit” and that’s why she hit him. He told officers that his mother hit his brother with a box-like object, like a chair that folds into a box. Officers found 2 folding stools in the car.
Caleb also indicated Austin tried to follow his mother and brother away from the car, but collapsed in the passing lane. Caleb tried to get him to stand up, Green said. Austin couldn’t get up! This druggie bitch continued walking a distance of 50 yards before sitting down on the other side of the interstate’s westbound lanes.
Austin is now out of the hospital and in foster care. He’s walking and talking. He has to have at least 1 more surgery. Doctors say they may not know the extent of his neurological impairment for years.
Both boys are in foster care in Tennessee.
It never ceases to amaze me how some idiot can look at something and think “hrm… I wonder what would happen if I snorted/injected/ate that??” I’m the first to admit I’m naïve when it comes to drugs and I don’t know anything about all the new crap out there. When I first heard this story my thoughts were “Are you kidding me?? Bath Salts?!?”
This selfish, uncaring c*** wasn’t thinking of anything but her next high!! I hope her rights to these boys are severed so she will never get the chance to harm them again!! Drugged or not she seemed to come to herself rather quickly when the officers found her. She said nothing of the car bomb or hitting a “demon”. Seems she was to herself enough to know that if she said those things there would be problems! Instead she had sense enough to come up with “I dropped him.” Not that it did her any good!!
What saddens me is Caleb’s reaction! He automatically went into caretaker mode… First he was trying to talk sense into this half-witted addict and then tried to help his brother get up. This little boy has grown up way to fast thanks to the piece of shit he was born to!!! He had to be scared out of his mind as he watched that twit hit his brother with a stool because he was a “demon” or “evil spirit”!
Thankfully, Austin survived this trauma and hopefully will recover fully in spite of the bitch that birthed him! I’ve read this family has had previous contact with Tennessee CPS. It didn’t say what for though. And where are the father/fathers of these boys??
