Did the System Fail This Boy?
There is a major problem happening with our child protection system in this country. Well, it is possibly that this problem has always existed. Read this article for specifics, but many children are killed each year that had prior incidents of child abuse that DSS was alerted to. I can certainly understand that some slip […]
Unbelievable Story of Infant Murder
This story is absolutely insane. Joseph Mouton, 57, has been charged with killing his 6-month-old son… THEN hiding his body in a refrigerator… AND he has not been charged with murder. His defense was that he was under the influence when the child was killed. Yet, he was previously arrested for battering the baby’s mother […]

Another little baby, 5-month-old Jasper, appears to have been killed due to shaking. Matthew J.

Who Killed Desiree, Mom or Boyfriend?
Desiree Nicole Wade, 8 months old, was killed. Just recently the trial of her mother’s boyfriend Charles Brassfield, 24, began.

Little Girl Left in Car While Father in Jail
It has been a long time since I saw one of these. A father left his 9-month-old infant in a car with no ventilation while he went inside a jail to retrieve his possessions. A security guard found the poor little girl crying and sweating and broke a window to get her out. The father, […]
Teliajah Brown: Murdered by Mother’s Boyfriend
I have yet ANOTHER case of a child murdered by the mother’s boyfriend.

He claims that the death was accidental and happened when they were wrestling. I am just so […]

A baby was found dead in a swampy area in Louisiana. This story has just about every bad thing that could have led up to this murder: domestic dispute, drug abuse, firearms, and a poor environment. I will let you read all of the details, but basically 22-year-old Sabrina Maiden has been charged with first-degree […]
