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.

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.

Police Call-Off Search For Missing Baby:
Family And Friends Of Mother Of Missing Baby Talk About Abuse Charges:
I apologize for not posting this story sooner as I just found out about it today thanks to Krystal who sent in the tip.
A few weeks ago in Memphis, Tennessee, then 7-week-old Aniston Walker went missing. Her mother, Andrea Walker, claims that she walked her 5-year-old to school and left Aniston alone with her 3-year-old. When she returned she says, the baby was gone even though the home was locked and there were no signs of forced entry.
Police in Memphis suspended the search after 3 days even though they are still investigating her disappearance. Meanwhile Andrea Walker is believed to have had something to do with her daughter’s disappearance and has been arrested on neglect and abuse charges. Police say that Andrea Walker has been uncooperative and has allegedly given conflicting stories. The only thing missing from this story is that she Walker hasn’t claimed to have given the baby to a fictional person.
Nothing will bring a community together like a missing child. Complete strangers will drop whatever they’re doing and volunteer to assist police in the search. Nothing will turn a community against you faster than lying about that child’s disappearance. Eventually they will find Aniston and more than likely, I hate to say, deceased. Do yourself and everyone a favor, talk now so the baby can be put to rest.
Mother who killed her baby: ‘I put my hands over her nose and mouth’:
I originally posted about Shakara Dickens here. She was the Memphis Breeder who, in the vein of a certain Florida trailer trash attention whore, reported her daughter missing when in reality 9-month-old Lauryn Dickens was dead. Back in March Dickens was convicted of Lauryn’s murder. This past week at her sentencing hearing she admitted to every detail.
She said that she was frustrated that she couldn’t find a baby sitter and started crying. Then Lauryn started crying. Instead of comforting her which is what most normal mothers do she put her hand over Lauryn’s nose and mouth until she passed out. She removed her hand and Lauryn started crying again and Dickens continued to suffocate her.
When Lauryn was dead Dickens put her body in a trash bag and threw it in a dumpster two apartment complexes away. She didn’t go back to the dumpster but watched as the dumpster was emptied.
It looks like she’s only going to get 19 years and time served.
I guess we’re supposed to feel sorry for her since she came clean at sentencing. Not on your life sister. At any time you had the chance to either stop what you were doing before Lauryn died or at least told police where she was before she was dumped into a Memphis landfill. Instead you handed the police a lot of bullshit and had your family run interference for you.
I’m glad that you got that off your conscience but it’s too little too late.
I originally posted about this piece of rat excrement, James Hawkins, here. Back in 2008 Hawkins was arrested for murdering and dismembering his wife and mother of his three children, Charlene Gaither, in front of their daughter. Not only did he murder and dismember her but he also forced his then 12-year-old daughter to take part in chopping up her mother. According to reports the girl was forced to hold her dead mother’s head while Hawkins went to town with a saw.
Hawkins was molesting his own 12-year-old daughter and when Gaither found out about it she filed a protective order against Hawkins but again pieces of paper don’t stop chicken shits like Hawkins.
After his arrest Hawkins defense was that he dismembered her body but didn’t kill her. Then in court his big macho defense was that his daughter killed her own mother.
If you’ll notice nowhere in this post have I used the word ‘allegedly’. That’s because yesterday Hawkins was convicted of killing Ms. Gaither and molesting his daughter. At last check the jury was contemplating his sentence and he could receive the death penalty. As my wife is fond of saying the death penalty is too good for piece of shit like this. You get a needle and you go to sleep and never wake up. Too peaceful for an obvious coward like Hawkins. ‘They’ should give his cellies knives and saws and let them go to town on Hawkins.
And check out the piss poor excuse his defense attorney is bleating in hoping that his client doesn’t get death…
Defense attorney Gerald Skahan said he’s hopeful Hawkins won’t receive the death penalty, and plans to bring testimonies on Hawkins’ troubled upbringing in mitigation. “His brother was murdered and that kind of set off a chain of events in his life that I think that’s important that the jury hear… I think that had a tremendous impact on James and in his life and it’s those type of things that I think it’s important the jury know.”
That’s a load of bullshit. If you ask me this whole ‘bad childhood’ crap is what has gotten this country into the crime problem that it’s in today. Too many chicken shit coward killers and rapists have the jury feel sorry for them because daddy didn’t get them the toy they wanted for Christmas. He killed Ms. Gaither only to try to keep his child molesting ass out of prison.
Surprisingly it’s scum like Hawkins that reinforce my beliefs in Heaven and Hell. I have a hard time believing that there isn’t a greater justice waiting for these scumbags than the one this world can deliver.
Rot in hell scum.
My apologies to whomever sent in the tip as I have misplaced your name.
UPDATE: Hawkins received the death sentence.
Memphis police search warrants presume missing baby is dead:
Sources say relatives not cooperating in search for baby:
First off let me say that I am sorry I’m way behind on posting stories. Especially this one.
Normally I don’t do missing child stories. It’s not that I don’t have sympathy for the children in their families. I just think there are so many blogs about missing children that it’s hard to find the signal among the noise. However when there is a story that it’s so obvious that one of the Breeders was involved I jump in. Even if Nancy Grace has already had her hair sprayed claws over it.
Anyway, 19-year-old Shakara Dickens of Memphis, Tenn. reported her daughter, 10-month-old Lauryn Dickens, missing on September 15th claiming that she gave the child to an unknown woman on September 7th. Got that so far? Ok, it’s gets weirder. Dickens claim that the unknown woman (who I’m sure is hanging out with Nicole Brown’s real killer) was taking the child to the child’s father. The thing is the father is in jail and has not only had no contact with Dickens but her phone is blocked from receiving calls from the prison. He says he has no idea what she’s even talking about.
Local media is reporting that police are acting on the assumption that Lauryn Dickens is not alive.
And oddly like another similar case Shakara Dickens mother, Tracy Dickens, is said to be uncooperative with the investigation.
I’m going to be updating this story as information becomes available and as time allows because I know the national media will grow tired of this story and not give it half the attention they gave that certain story out of Florida.
Thanks to Winnie for the tip.
Mother Takes 5 Year-Old Daughter To Drug Deal:
Police report: Girl, 5, present at drug deal:
33-year-old Patrice Hughes wanted to get her weed on at 2:30 in the morning. So her and her cousin allegedly went to go see their dealer with Hughes’ 5-year-old daughter in tow.
When they met up with the dealer, 21-year-old Cordarel Oliver, he tried to rob the pair by holding a gun to the 5-year-old’s head.
…police say Oliver pointed a gun at the head of Hughes’ five year-old daughter and told them he would blow her brains out if he didn’t get the money. “
All three ‘adults’ have been arrested while the child has been placed with other family members.
And again I keep hearing from the burnouts that pot isn’t addictive and doesn’t cloud your judgment. If it didn’t do those things we wouldn’t have stories like this.
Thanks to Teresa for the tip.
Girl Forced to Help Killer, Police Say:
Police: Man made daughter help as he cut body:
31-year-old James Hawkins of Memphis, Tenn. has been charged in the brutal murder Charlene Gaither in February of 2008. Gaither and Hawkins had three children together. Gaither was killed five months after Hawkins had been paroled from prison after serving 15 years for robbery.
What makes this story even more tragic is that not only did their then 12-year-old daughter witness the murder but Hawkins allegedly forced the girl to help him dismember the body. The girl claims she could only look away when her mother’s head fell to the floor after cutting it off with an electric saw.
When the girl protested that she didn’t want to do this anymore Hawkins allegedly said “Do you want to die too?”
Gaither’s body was found without her head hands or feet. She was identified through DNA.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
Thanks to Lady Jade and IHK2 for the tips.
