A three month old infant had to have half of her skull removed resulting from injuries of torture and abuse by her father. The infant had bruises all over her body, a blood clot in the brain, a fractured skull, many fractured ribs, a fractured wrist which has left her with brain damage. Her doctors believed the baby wouldn’t survive, but she did, although her quality of life will be anybody’s guess.

A 23-year-old Alburtis man charged with attempted homicide involving his 6-week-old daughter Easter weekend — the baby suffered a fractured skull, leg and wrist fractures and six broken ribs and was expected to die but survived — had his formal arraignment in Lehigh County Court on Thursday.

David J. Walsh waived the reading of the charges and was returned to Lehigh County Prison, where he has been held under $750,000 bail since his April 7 arrest. A trial date has not been set.

  • A trial date should NEVER be set for that mother fucker! How can you do that to a 3 month old?! Like I’ve said before, you’re supposed to love and cherish your babies! Hold them because they are a part of you!

    *~* i hope he dies in jail!!! People like him pursue me even more to become a social worker to stop animals like him!!*~*

    How can the law allow a sick like that bail. He should never be set free. What did a 3month old baby do to provoke him, did she swear at him or did she hit him, no she couldnt even move on her own as yet, yet this lunatic beat her up so bad. Couldnt he find someone his own age to beat up, this mad bastard. I hope the people in his area would get a hold of him and beat him to death. Where the hell was the mother?? How could she leave a small baby with a sicko like that, she obviously knew he was abusive. I wish i could see her, i would scratch her eyes out, You enjoyed making the baby but you cant look after her. Dont spread your legs for just any man, you stupid bitch.

      You obviously have NO idea what the hell you’re talking about.  I am CERTAINLY not defending the father, but he did this in a fit of rage and there were NO warning signs that he was abusive before.  She was at WORK when this happened –because mothers have to work, you know?– and she had to see this happen when she came home.  I think law enforcement officials know a Hell of a lot more than you do and you know what? The child is in HER care because she’s a loving, wonderful mother.  I’m talking to her right now and not only is she a fantastic mother, she’s a very PROUD mother of a child who is now finally walking using her walker.  You need to check your facts first.  If the mother knew anything about the abuse, she would have been charged too for neglect.  Keep your dumbass opinions to yourself.

        The fit of rage isn’t enough to let this pass, and I really do believe they had to be some sort of “marks” or “situations” that could make someone believe the man had something going on: no matter how furious you can get to be, a normal person wouldn’t do THAT kind of damage to a baby or kid… About the mother I can’t say I’m supportive nor do I blame her entirely: ok, she’s got to go to work, but she should really watch out whom she decides to date or marry (don’t know if the guy’s her husband or just her partner), because they are really sick people out there and we must protect ourselves from them, moreover if we have a baby to take care of :/

    There is a follow up story from the local news in the area:

    Looks like the baby is recovering and hopefully will not suffer much in the way of long term effects, depending on any brain damage.

    Sounds like the father swung the infant into a wall like a baseball bat. Maybe he should be placed in one of those crash test dummy vehicles and sent into a wall at high speed.

  • if you are angry dont beat up a little girl or someonr your own age (Samantha). but yes you are right both of the two are bastards.

    • Alli Bratcher

      No, they’re not.  You just read the response Samantha got.  The mother had NOTHING to do with this situation.  She is a friend of mine and a phenomenal woman.

    In my whole life i have never heard such horrible stories… Why on Earth would anyone do such damage to a child?? Well i am going to school to help put a stop to all that stuff. But when you think about it, you will never be able to stop child abuse. As sad as it may sound but, we can help the children have a better life and help them to never lead that life when they have children….

    • AJ Quintana

      If not stop it, we can at least help in making this incidents occur less each time. It won’t completely dissappear, but someone’s got to stand up and start the fight to defend the victims, at least one at a time, in any ways possible

  • Person

    That’s fucking sick. Just fucking sick. SIX WEEKS OLD?? Are you kidding me??? This is beyond belief. I hope he goes through what the kid did, infinity times over.

  • Veronica

    I want to kill this dude myself. The dude likes pain? I’d give him pain.

  • THE MOM OF THE INFANT SAID THAT HE WAS NEVER VIOLENT BUT HE WAS JELOUSE THAT THE LITTLE GIRL WAS GETTING ALL OF THE MOTHERS ATTENTION THAT WHY HE WAS UPSET/ IF SHE KNEW THIS WHY THE HELL DID SHE LET HIM BABYSIT THE BABY? SHE IS A BITCH, SHE BELIEVE HIM WHEN HE SAID THAT SHE FELL OUT OF BED. SHE AND HIM SHOULD DIE IN JAIL/ SHE WAS WORKING, AND NOT EVEN CALLING HOME WHATEVER.

      HOW MANY PLACES DO YOU KNOW OF WHERE YOU CAN JUST CALL HOME ALL THE TIME???  I don’t know of many!  If law enforcement thought she had ANY inkling that he was abusive then they would have charged her with neglect, it’s as simple as that.  Have they?  Nope.  Why?  Because she’s an awesome mother.  It’s all good when you can just hide behind a name on the internet, but you wouldn’t dare say this to someone’s face.

    This is sick. Have you noticed a trend lately with low 20 something abusing and killing their children? It embarasses me as a 22 year old mother with a 2 year old son. If I had the resources I would become a lawyer for child abuse victim. However, my son is my life and anyting that would take away my time with him would not suit well with me. (just so you know i am in school for accounting, but it is an online program). I want the best possible life for my son. If I EVER, EVER found out that my son had “fell out of bed” on someone elses watch and had incurred injuries like this… they would have to either hospitalize me or keep the bastard in jail because you better BET I would come after the mother fucker. There is NO EXCUSE!!!!!!! Anyone with the BALLS to hurt a child should be executed. It’s not worth it to keep these people alive and being fed and entertained in a jail house that I pay for. I would rather pay MORE money to ensure that these people are wiped off the face of the earth and get what they deserve.

    • AJ Quintana

      Well said

  • jessica

  • Child Abusers should go @#$% them selves

    this is so fucking messed up. i mean Children are so precious and pure i seriously dont get how messed up and retarded human nature is these child abuses seriously need some help and needs to fuh qing grow the hell up before i gather 12312321 of people to hunt them down and destroy them one by one. And the sad thing is that half the fricken world doesnt give a shet or doesnt do a crap to help these poor innocent children. I read this one where the mom poured spicy sause all over her daughters “private” area that is just so fuh qed up i mean who in the GOD DAMN world would ever do that? D: i dont get how people can live like that knowning that he mentally and physically abused a innocent child that the world needs and thats also destroying Gods creation. if i watched these people burn in hell crying out for mercy and pleading to be given another chance i would not feel any sympothy for them knowing that they get what they deserve and that God will give them a perfect place in the lake of fire. I think that these people really should go to hell due to their mental disorders seriously.. LOL im pretty sure no one will read this O__O but if you do i appreciate that you took the time to read this and i also hope that you will not become on of these sick demented people D: <3 haha God bless (:
