There are THREE accounts of what happened contained in this write-up, be sure to read them all because they all contain information regarding the story. First you’ll read what the Foster Mom “says” happened, then you’ll hear the story of another child that was present, and finally there is the evidence aquired by law enforcement.
That sorry piece of reservation trailer trash is 50-year-old Lavonna Bird. According to her she went to the dental clinic on the Crow Reservation (that’s in Montana y’all where the women are mean and the kids are scared) with 3-year-old Jaren Wayne Blacksmith and two other children with her but could not get a walk-in appointment. So she put the kids back in her GMC Envoy and drove back to Hardin. But Jaren was asleep so she left him in the car. Now this angel of a foster mom wasn’t completely heartless, she left the windows down. This was in the “early afternoon.” When she went back to check on him, he was dead. Well DUH that’s what happens when you leave a child out in the Montana heat in the summertime!!!
But wait it gets OH SO MUCH BETTER. According to one of the other children in the vehicle, when Jaren woke up earlier in the day at the dental clinic Reservation Trailer Trash Foster Mom up there became upset with him. So she slammed his head on the floorboard of the Envoy as well as the window of the Envoy. The girl said Jaren appeared to fall asleep again (yeah I’d say he probably passed out from serious head injuries) so she and the other girl went inside the dental clinic with Reservation Trailer Trash Foster Mom. RTTFM left Jaren wrapped in a blanket in the car while they went in. The girl said that when they arrived back in Hardin at about 2:30 Jaren was flailing about.
When authorities got the call about a child in distress even though RTTFM SAYS she left the windows down they found them all rolled up. The investigation is being handled by the FBI, BIA and Big Horn Country Sheriff’s department. According to them “Evidence was found in the back of the vehicle which indicated that there was likely someone in the back of the vehicle trying to escape, but unable to do so.” Investigators have also said that while the autopsy showed “prolonged heat exposure” to be the cause of death there was fresh bruising to the scalp, forehead, right cheek, mid-shoulder and upper back.
RTTFM’s nephew, David TurnsPlenty, has come out saying that his aunt loved Jaren like he was her own (gee if this is how she loves her own I’d like to hear from some of her natural children) and insists that the mother of 3, grandmother and foster mother would never do such a thing. Sorry David, I know you believe what you are saying but I just can’t.
Jarren Wayne Blacksmith just turned 3 on August 10th. His biological parents are Latasha Little Light and Dwayne Blacksmith. No word on why he was removed from their care. He was laid to rest Monday. Rest In Peace Jaren, hopefully you will find nothing but happiness on the otherside.
Now this is NOT your normal run of the mill child left in a car story. This foster mom left a 3-year-old child in a hot car to die after beating him senseless for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Her story and the other child’s story differ completely and now a defenseless little boy is dead because of her. She simply beat him senseless and then left him out in a hot car so that it could look “accidental.” And no I don’t think that EVERYONE that lives on a reservation is necessarily “Reservation Trailer Trash” but in this instance it just seemed to be appropriate. I also understand that there is an issue where the Tribes in Montana won’t allow their children to be fostered by non-native american foster parents but seriously this child would have been better off with someone, anyone else but THIS woman. The system failed Jaren by placing him with this woman.
