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 […]

Reward Offered for Information

Want $25,000?  Read on! A baby was abandoned outside of a home in Washington D.C. in January.  The cause of death has been ruled a homicide due to hypothermia.  Police have received many tips since then, but none have led to an arrest.  Someone out there knows what happened to this baby and she did […]

Anitra Hicks Charged with Murder of Infant

Anitra Hicks, 18, has been charged with the murder of her infant son. She is currently under house arrest while she awaits trial.  She is allowed to attend school and see her lawyer.  I would like to hear your thoughts on this.  Personally, I am a big fan of house arrest for people who are […]

Another Abandoned in Mississippi

Another baby was abandoned behind a church in Mississippi.  Not only was the baby not brought inside the church, but churches are not even approved safe haven locations. I could see how someone who is unfamiliar with Safe Haven might think they could turn to their church for help.  This is not hard to fathom.  […]

New Jersey Baby Abandoned at Bus Stop

Once again a baby was abandoned.  This time it was in New Jersey. This incident is doubly sad to me because the parent who abandoned the child was obviously aware of Safe Haven laws.  The baby was left at a bus stop directly across the street from a hospital.  I’m sure the parent was just […]

Child Welfare in Nebraska

Here is an interesting article on the state of child welfare in Nebraska. One point in particular I just touched on in a previous post.  When Safe Haven was first enacted in Nebraska, any child under the age of 18 could be legally abandoned at an approved location.  This caused dozens of teenagers to be […]

Whereabouts of Newborn Unknown to Police

This is a new one for me.  A mother is facing charges of killing her newborn though no child has been found. Seem strange?  Well the mother admitted to giving birth to a baby but refuses to tell police where it is.  The police department has been searching the area around where she gave birth, […]

Children with Disabilities More Likely to be Abandoned?

This article is a bit of a tough read, but it has some really good information if you are interested in the subject of child welfare. One point made in the article is that many parents who have children with disabilities give up their children under Safe Haven laws simply because they cannot afford to […]

Fundraiser for Abandoned Baby Noel

We reported on Baby Noel a few weeks ago.  This was the baby that was found abandoned in a box in Philadelphia. Well, one wonderful woman, Keisha Browning, decided to get her friends together and throw a baby shower for the infant.  This way, she could get many items that are necessary for taking care […]
