Tot Left Alone Dies in House Fire
Parents Out on Drug Deal
30 year old Anthony Walker and 22 year old Adrienne Haslam-Tatti decided to go for a midnight stroll. Now, normally this wouldn’t land them on BB but when they took their walk they left their 18 month old son, Dillon Walker, in his crib alone.
Justin Stevens, the downstairs neighbor, told police he was brushing his teeth when he smelled smoke. After searching his home he went outside and saw an orange glow coming from his neighbor’s suite on the second level.
He kicked the door in and saw fire coming from the oven. He tried to put it out with water and when that didn’t work he ran from room to room to see if anyone was there. He searched the living room and a bedroom but unfortunately couldn’t get to the bedroom Dillon was in because the smoke was too thick.
Canadian police and fire department received 3 emergency calls of a home burning and within 9 minutes were at the scene. When they got there the second floor was fully engulfed in flames. The intense heat and flames prevented firefighters from entering at first. Eventually, they got the flames controlled and were able to get inside to find the baby dead in his crib.
While emergency workers were trying to get close to the home the bio-parents showed back up. Haslam-Tatti immediately started screaming her baby was in there while Walker was yelling, “We just went for a walk. Our gas was shut off. We use the stove for heat.” He said the gas had been shut off 2 days prior and they were using an oil heater, 2 small heaters, and the oven for heat. He told police they were only gone 10 to 15 minutes.
Emergency workers arrived at 1:43 am, 9 minutes before that were the 911 calls so it was first reported at about 1:34. According to reports the parents showed up on the scene at 2:05 am and were uncooperative and wouldn’t give the police their names. So that’s about 30 minutes that we know the home was burning. The neighbors didn’t notice it until it was already too late to save little Dillon. So who knows how long these two were actually gone!!
Police now say that their midnight stroll was in fact a drug deal and that these two were the dealers!! Neighbors told investigators that Walker “dealt numerous kinds of illegal drugs to people in the community.”
The two are being investigated for criminal negligence causing death, failure to provide necessities and child abandonment according to a search warrant.
They have another child who fortunately wasn’t in the home the night of the fire!!
I don’t know much about Canadian law but why the hell haven’t these two been arrested?? They left an 18 month old baby alone!! Regardless of anything else that alone should land their worthless, negligent asses in jail!!
I don’t care if it was 10-15 minutes, which I don’t believe for one fucking minute, their actions cost this baby his life!! They might as well have set the fire themselves!
Why did it take both of them to make a fucking drug deal!?! If one of them had stayed with that baby this wouldn’t be an issue right now!!!
BTW, what kind of drug dealer doesn’t make enough money to pay his fucking utility bills!?! Makes me wonder if they weren’t using up all the profit to feed habits of their own!
True justice would find both of these useless bastards burned alive!!!
