Baby starved to death

March 28th, 2009 by | Permalink

A mother, who for some insane reason, totally ignored her 4 month old infant twins, left one to die at under 7lbs. at 4 months old. The twin brother lived, but was treated for malnutrition and dehydration. The twin who died, died of starvation. The woman had two other toddler children who were seemingly fine.

In what a child-abuse investigator described as one of the most disturbing cases of malnutrition and neglect she had seen during her career, 4-month-old Brianna Morges-Gresswas found dead Nov.16 at about the same size she was at 2weeks.

Brianna and her twin brother, Edwin Jr., weren’t fed or handled for 14hours before her Nov.16 death, according to a police affidavit, yet their 2- and 3-year-old sisters showed no signs of malnutrition and were in good health. Experts wonder whether this is a case of “scapegoating,” where children are singled out for abuse while others are left alone.

“This is a particularly unusual case,” said Carrie Hoeppner, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Children and Families. “A big question for us is, ‘Why?’

    Seems to me, that she never wanted or loved the twins. Therefore she didn’t feed them or give them the human contact they so despertly need. I am thankful the boy twin was able to be cured and made it through.

    That fat cow must’ve truly hated her twins. There is no excuse for starving any of your children. I’m sorry that those little twins had shit for a mom and I wish I was their mommy. Well, at least the twin boy survived.
