Lebanon, Ohio police found a 29 year old woman walking naked on the road, after leaving her baby lying on the double yellow lines Saturday morning. She said she was taking the baby to Satan. The police found evidence that she tried to start her apartment on fire. The woman was taken to the hospital for a psychological evaluation, and will be charged with child endangerment, disorderly conduct, and aggravated arson. The 7 week old boy was placed with the woman's mother by Warren County Children Services. He appears to be uninjured.

That is so sad. I wonder if she was suffering from post partum depression. That is so scary.

I would say it's a good bet that she has post partum depression. I saw a young mother in the hospital once that had it, and it was the scariest thing I ever saw. The hospital was about to send the woman home with her baby, but luckily, they sent her for evaluation and further hospitalization before that happened.

Some people are just nuts. I would look into how she was raised just to see what could have triggered such a thing. Poor girl and baby. Good thing neither of them were hurt.

Wow this is just crazy! I really can't believe this. Wow how could a mother do something like that. The worst part is she said it was a gift for satan. Wow this is pretty sad.

What worries me is that she'll probably get evaluated as having postpartum depression, and they'll let her have her baby back. I would never trust someone like that alone with a child again.

Wow, people are so strange. That isn't too terribly far away from me. I am glad the child is ok, and hope she gets the help she needs.
