Daycare Murders

Is there anything more vile than a group of adults joining together to dole out and hide abuse against children? Especially when they are adults who have been specifically trusted with the welfare of kids. Healthcare workers, daycare staff, babysitters, and nannies - people we trust with all our heart to love and nourish them just as we would, seem to deliver a double tragedy when they are the ones who harm our babies.

I was looking through todays news stories for something to post. Finding bad girls, or those accused of badness, isn't as hard as some may think. Although there are plenty every morning, most kill for love or money, some for mental illness such as PPD or Munchausen by proxy.

I present to you today, casual crime reader, with cases of daycare abuse and murder. I found several in todays headlines, including one featuring an 11-year-old babysitter in Maryland who just last week killed a one year old relative.

Back in November, a 10-year-old Minnesota girl killed an infant in her care. She's been charged as an adult.
She claims to have panicked after dropping him, then smashing his head when he wouldn't stop crying.

These oh-so-young babysitter scenarios are almost understandable. Not so much understandable, but we can see how it might occur. It is those situations where trusted adults willfully harm infants and small children that are the most heart wrenching for me.

A second daycare worker, Ariana Silver, in Missouri has now been arrested in multiple abuse claims in Pine Lawn. Surveillance cameras show Silver, and another woman, throwing children into furniture. She was charged Thursday.

  Jessica Wiese has eight counts of child abuse against her stemming from an incident at a McKinney, Texas daycare.
The incidents include a 7-month-old with a broken arm and video of Wiese hitting an infant repeatedly in the head. Wiese was arrested in December after video from inside the school recorded her slamming a 5-month-old baby onto a table. There’s also video of the infant room worker grabbing a 2-month-old by his legs and shaking him up and down and Wiese forcefully slamming a toddler into a table.Wiese was a registered nurse who lost her license due to drug abuse.

That's just today, you guys. I'm sure, if I'd dug further there would have been more. What is happening in our daycare facilities. Is there anything we can do to ensure our children's safety?

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Morgan Smith Florida

Morgan Smith. Wow. Just, wow. She came from a family of mental illnesses with a father who committed suicide. She had spent her life on psychotropic drugs for severe depression and borderline personality disorder, the same thing that causes multiple personalities. She also became a sex slave for Daryl Smith in a long-term relationship that ended with a child.

Their relationship was everything the weird, late night, HBO documentaries say those things are. She met him after work and groveled at his feet in a leather outfit complete with chain leash and dog collar. She licked his boots clean and said thank you after he spanked her ass. She was a complete, total submissive, and seemed to enjoy being that way. She even changed her last name to his legally, even though he would not marry her. He had told her many times; no matter what she did, she would never be his wife.

Eventually he found another woman he was interested in, Andrea Stranko, and left Morgan and their
daughter. It devasta…

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
