The baby boy at the bottom of the pool

United States
April 13, 2016 12:01pm CST
Fort Oglethorpe, GA Sunday an 18-month-old boy was found unresponsive in a swimming pool at an apartment complex. There is a 6 iron fence around the pool. The gate was locked. Someone spotted the baby in the pool and called for help. Noah Smith didn't did walk into the pool area, he didn't climb the fence - so letting imaginations run wild many believed, including myself, that someone killed that baby. It is no shock that Noah Smith's mother and her boyfriend were just arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder. No other details are available at the moment, but you know there is more to this story. RIP little one.
Elizabeth Rayna, 42, and Billy Ray Crawford, 41, were arrested sometime between Tuesday and Wednesday.

They cops had been called to the mom's home about 5 times - once just two weeks ago because the little boy was alone outside.

They killed an 18 month old child how horrible, that poor child. RIP They should be charged with 1st degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no posibility of parole. What in the world is wrong with people killing their own baby.

very sad to hear that. i think police need to take strict action and find out the murderer (as it looks like murder only)

That is so sad. It is people like those two who don't deserve to ever bear children. They should get their tubes tied.

10 to 30 years each is what they could get.

Yeah, there's no way on God's green earth that that child was able to get into that area by himself @AbbyGreenhill .

Absolutely. When I saw the height of the fence and how close the bars are - my husband figures they threw the baby over.

The only people who can understand are those who have done the same thing.

There seems to be no limits anymore. Then I stRt reading history, and wonder if this is new, or just much more known with the media blasting it? The horror I feel. As a child who came very close to drowning....it is not a pleasant experience. even as a three year old I knew that if no one rescued me I would die.

I think with instant media we know about things faster and hear more of them. Glad someone rescued you!
