Dumb way to kill some one #2

Twice. This mother killed her 3 year old son... twice. She took this young boy to park. Instead of him playing and doing what kids should... he died by his mother's hand. She placed that hand over his mouth and suffocated him. Then she brought him back to life. THEN this loving mother killed him again! I can't think of a good "why" to this but here is hers: "What makes this story especially sad is, when asked the reason why she took Ty's life, Tiffany said that she did not want him to grow up with no one caring about him, the same way that she had grown up where nobody had cared about her." Her family said she never showed him a normal mother's love and bond. That gave them 3 years to help both her and the child. If everything is as it appears then I have a sneaky thought that maybe there is a mental issue with mom that may even run in the family. That being the case, maybe if some one had offered some medical help maybe this could have been avoided. The fact that she killed and buried him at a park makes me think maybe she cared more then she thought she did. Did you bond with your child right away? What do you think of this family (mother, son, and others)? Could this have been avoided?

This child should of been put up for adoption! If the mother would realized it would of been the best for the baby this wouldn't of happen! I know you can't make a person put a child up for adoption if they don't want to. I had child 19 and a half years ago and I gave him up for adoption after birth. I knew right after I found out I was pregent this was the right thing to do! I was in a lousey realtionship with a f***ing jerk who was a mess and I was a mess to! This was right for me and I never regreted what I did! If the family of this woman was trying to get their daughter help they should of tried to find her mentally unstable to be a mom and had her son taken away from her! This tragady could of been avoided!

Hi TLChimes, That really makes me angry, if hse had a mental problem why can't a member of her family help and other thing is she can't be that mental to lie down on her back and conceive in the first place, I can't stand people like that and just because they don't want to go to prison, the plead they are mental, there are so many women who would give anything to have a child and they cannot conceive, it just makes me spit.

I hate hearing these. You're going to eventually drive yourself insane reading these articles all the time, because there's too many of them, every day. I bonded with both of my babies right away. Before they were born. When they were born, I was so stunned, shocked and grateful that the Goddess would bless me with something so precious. Even today - and my kids are ages 13 and 8 - every once in a while, it hits me. I wonder to myself what did I do, because it had to be something amazing, to deserve to have two beautiful children. The bigger question that really needs to be answered is, what is wrong with all of these people? What is going on in their minds? Can we figure this out and fix it?

Hello my friend TLChimes Ji, Surely, it could have been avoided by family members, then good neighbours, and NGOs besides Govt. machinary. Every body failed in their duties. I think, much more worst time is ahead, when no one will care for anything happening around. It would be a daily routine. ay god bless You and have a great time.

Oh my goodness my mom was telling me about this and it is just scary. I am hoping that the woman will get the help she needs mentally. I mean how can one kill a child and get over it? It has to haunt her. I just can't imagine doing that. To bad someone couldn't help.

That is just aweful. There's no explination on why anyone would kill their child, especially if that person burried their child in the park. That's more disturbing than having a miscarriage. How anyone could ever kill their own child is just something that needs to be figured out because there's a lot of it happening. I could possibly see the father killing the child and claiming to have a reason, but not a mother. She bonded with the child while the pregnancy... how could she just kill the very life that she was carrying for 9 months. That bond will never disappear, she'll live with this for the rest of her life. That has to be worse than being blaimed and asked what happened over and over again.

I read this story yesterday and I truly couldn't believe it! I have read many horror stories but this one is terrible! How can you kill a child, perform CPR, regret the act, and kill again?? It just doesn't make sense and yes it's obvious she has a mental disorder, a huge one. I feel just because she felt she was never loved by anyone in her family, does not mean that people didn't love her son and unfortunately she didn't see it that way. It's ashame that this 3 yr. old had to suffer this and may he rest in peace. As for her, she needs help desperately and I hope she realizes what she's done.

To think that this kind of stuff happens every day is so very sad. It's sad that a woman or a man would ever think of killing their child and I hope that if she is mentally ill she and her family can get the help she and they both deserve and need. One day hopefully she'll look back at this and see what she's done and realize how bad it was. The hurt and pain from it I am sure will be so bad, worse then I ever want to think about.

No words to describe; I certainly think that's horrible and terrible. She's not fit to be called a mother. What selfish reason is that? How can she ever said such things? She's not God and definitely could not predict the future that her late son will be in when he grows up. Unfortunately, she would never know because she selfishly took that life away. She gave life to him by giving birth and she took them. Why couldn't she just take her own life then? Why the son? Why...there are so many weirdos in this world I got so angry. I read a month or so before this sick mom putting the newborn in the washing machine. Why not she put herself in it? What sick mind is that. Utterly sad and with such lame excuses, they should die being struck by lightning. Sorry for the language, but I really feel terrible for those kids/victims. They were sinless and their lives had been taken just like that. Because psycho mom thought this and that.

This is not normal for loving mother. She has to be mentally sick to do such act. Normal mother would rather die to protect her children than killing them. Sad to say that it happened in America, our country is rich, but most people don't have medical help and too many people with mental illness are not under medical supervision.

Horrible! I am only a student and have no child of my own. However, I do realize the importance of a child to his or her parents because of the love I got from my parents. It is so unbelievable that this mother can kill his son with her own hands. Nevertheless, I don't think that this mother has no love towards his son.There must be some mental problem with you. She loves her son in an extreme and morbid way, which led to the tragety in the end.

Hi TLChimes, This is another sad story but I feel certain that you are right about the mental issues, very likely in not just the mother, but the grandparents as well. Children need love, they need to know that they are very important to somebody and apparently it was missing in this family. If the mother did not have this when she was a child, she may have felt incapable of giving it to her child. We have so much to learn about caring for one another, adults as well as children. Many people don't realize the importance of being a parent and of how they act around children and usually it's because of their own upbringing and even how they are being treated by others today. Blessings.

Wow! What a sad story. I think this is one where I hope she is found guilty and has to spend every day reliving what she did over and over again. Another instance where this child's potential will not be recognized and his life was cut short because of someone elses selfishness and demented thinking. I think there may have been an opportunity to have helped the mother in that there were family members that had a problem with her behaviour. Then it would be doubly sad if that were the case. Lets try to have a little compassion for her. Not much though I am thinking.

The whole family Sounds funny to me however it dont matter what happend to her in the past she could have changed her ways but she choose not to and decided to kill her own child. Thats SICK and TWISTED. I dont feel sorry for her, Weather or not she could get off point is she still killed her CHILD. People can say she loved her child or Loved him to much..What loved him enough to kill him and then Dig a whole and put him in it. No thats not love and far from it. I have 2 children and sometimes they get out of hand and i had a bad childhood myself by that dont mean im going to kill my children because of it thats crazy. She deserves what she gets if you ask me.

I think your right ,as usual, and there were major issues in the whold family. And didn't she have any contact with any professionals that should have picked up on these issues? You were right about him loving him . I do think hawever that it was more than we think. She seemed to love him too much. In her sick mind, she seemed to think she was "saving" him. If she was feeling as alone as she appears, it sure is an indicator of desperately needing help and if there had been intervention, I not sure this would have ever happened. I think she has a good case for insanity.
