Babies’ Bodies Found In Coolers; Man Charged:

Babies’ Remains Found In Coolers:

Man charged with incest, murder after infant remains are found in Cass County

It seems that Missouri has it’s own little version of Josef Fritzl and his name is Danial M. Rinehart.

The 47-year-old waste of carbon from Harrisonville, Missouri has been arrested not only for raping his own teenage daughter but for also for fathering four children with her. But it doesn’t end there.

Rinehart had been having sex with his daughter since she was 13. She’s 19 now.

The first child was born in March of 2004 while the family lived in Oklahoma. The baby died that July. The girl, her sisters and her mother, Linda Rinehart, all buried the baby in a box that was sealed with silicone.

In 2005 the girl gave birth to a boy in a truck while both Rineharts helping to deliver the baby. Linda Rinehart even cut the umbilical cord. This happened while the family was living in Hendersonville. The child is still alive and has been placed in care of the state.

In 2006 the girl gave birth to her third child. Again both of the girls Breeders helped deliver the baby. This time Grampa Daddy got to cut the cord. I’m sure he was so proud. That child died in early 2007. No medical treatment was ever sought. When he died the girl and Rinehart buried the baby under their dirt floored garage. The girl moved the body when it was understood that investigators were interested in the family.

The fourth child was born in April of last year inside of a camper. It was stillborn. After Rinehart helped deliver the baby they put the baby in a cooler and sealed it with silicone and put it behind the RV where the third child’s body was moved to. Rinehart claims he gave the child CPR but again sought no medical attention.

Again I am just aghast at the thought processes of the main perpetrators. Rinehart gets it in his head that he’s going to have sex with his teenage daughter and his wife, the girl’s mother, allows it. Did she think there was no problem with that or was she so subservient to her husband she dare not question him and to stay with him for years and never try and contact law enforcement. Not to mention she assisted in the cover up. Linda Rinehart has also been arrested. She told police she was aware of the ‘relationship’ and was even jealous of it yet she still chose to do nothing.

As much as I’m a proponent of the death penalty killin’ is too good for this scumbag, as the saying goes. This assclown need to be studied to see what makes his brain tick in the most inhumane way possible.

Thanks to Bridget, my wife Jade, LadyJade and Maryanne for the tips.

    I am aghast but not suprised! How horrible!

    This goes far beyond abuse.

    “man is the only animal thatblushes- or needs to!” Mark Twain was right!

    What a sick disgusting jerk. And the mother from Hell who enabled this monster! This poor girl will need years of intensive therapy. And the child that did survive will be prone to all kinds of genetic abnormalities. This is why we need the death penalty and castration for these sexual degenerates!

    How did this messed up fam avoid detection. A kid is pregnant. Babies disappear. Where were they living? The Gobi desert?


  4. Cousinjo says:

    Fritzl was in Austria= in a city in the civilized(?) part of the world! Evil is everywhere, unfortunately, and civilization only makes it more subtle and easily disguised.

    WOW! What a heart breaking story! I find Terri very brave to come here and share her version of events with readers. I pray that you and your sister and the living child will be able to move on with life! I cannot fathom the evilness of those parents.


  9. terri rinehart says:

    Thankyou. I’s hard to move on knowing that my pearents were that way this is very difficult for me and my sisters my life will never be the same i’m getting married and it is pretty hard cause i don’t want the same thing happing to my childeren as it happend to me and my sisters iam the oldest of girls and the one who took care of them when my mother wasen’t around i was their mother anything they needed i was there when they needed someone to talk to. My pearents never worked i was the one who was working my pearents took my paycheck and spent it on what they wanted i only saw $20.00 and that was all i had to run me till i got paid again. Liveing my life with mom and dad was a nightmaire anything we did was wrong i was 17 and i was dateing this guy and my dad woulden’t let me go out with him and i had girlfriends and he woulden’t let me go to the mall or anything my life was a prison. We were in sexually in prison camp thats all he wanted was sex. I knew what i had to do and i wasen’t going to let this happenanymore to me or my sisters iam a christan and i don’t belive that a man who has beaten or sexually abused his daughters should live, he needs the death penalty and as for my mother what she has done i’m pist that she got out on a 10;000.00 dollar bond and she is only getting a slap on the hand. She has gotten a devorce from my father and its final but she didn’t protect her children insted she watched her own childeren getting abused. I was 19 and i told my dad i was moving out and he said no and i just kept telling him i was moving i upset him he grabes me and through me across the shop he was working in he tried to kill me then i landed on my back and he made his hand into a fist and was going to hit me. all because i wanted to move with some friends of mine. Thankyou again for listening and reading what i write. Iam now 20 will be turning 21 in two in a hafe weeks. and my man is 22 his name is james burke

    Terri, I’m sorry about your life. You’re one brave young lady. I hope your so-called parents rot in hell forever. Have you tried counselling?

  13. Angel says:

    Terri, go to your local social services department – they should be able to direct you to a free counseling clinic in your area.

    I am watching Dr. Phil right now and Ashley, the victim, is telling her story.  It’s beyond horrific and I hope he can get help for her.


  15. Sissyboo128 says:

    What kind of mother(or should I say what women would let a man rape her child)  As for that animal”s mother to say it was Ashely and her mother fault that all this happen something is wrong with her.  Since he wanted a son so bad, that bi— should let that animal rape her so he could he could have his son. Knowing the type of person she is, she might have enjoyed it,  You can not tell me she did not know  what was going on.  Why was she not charge with anything?   Sick bi—.   He will get what is coming to him in jail and judgement day.  Don’t drop the soap


  16. Sissyboo128 says:

    Sorry to  say, but the legal system in this land id going down the tubes.  If I could get my hands on the SOB  I would have cut his D—  off and place it in the trash. As  for his wife and mother, I would have  gave them a little taste of what Ashley went thru
    for all  them  years.

      I wanted to slap the grandmother when I saw her interview!  She also said all is okay now that he has found Jesus.  Uh, which Jesus would that be, the one that said it would be better to have a millstone tied around one’s neck and be thrown into a pond to drown rather than hurt a child?

      I was doing some internet searching and and I saw an article where mom says the reason she didn’t stop her husband from raping their daughter was because she wasn’t attractive enough to get another husband.   Apparently a murderous child rapist is better than no husband.   And the rapist’s brother blamed the daughter, too, said she should have just said no.   I hope he was thoroughly investigated as to his own behavior!  There’s got to be something he can be arrested for.

      The mother pled guilty and was sentenced to only seven years.  Not enough!   Her daughter was locked in that trailer for longer than that.

      That poor girl never had a chance and yet she has turned out to be nothing like her family and is working hard to have a good life.  She’s amazing!
