All Crime Is Personal

Woman left newborn in portable toilet, police say:

44-year-old Candy Vigneri of Maryland is accused of giving birth to baby in a park port-o-john and leaving the baby in there. Of course she claims she didn’t know she was pregnant. And it gets better…

After exiting the portable toilet in Long Wharf Park in Cambridge, Candy Vigneri got a cigarette from a construction worker and sat at a picnic table, police Lt. Wayne Bromwell said.

As she sat, a male passer-by approached the toilet but Vigneri warned him, “Don’t go in there, I just had a baby there,” police said.

So apparently she was smoking while she was ‘not pregant’ too.

The baby has survived so far and will be placed with social services.

Thanks to Christina for the tip.

    she sat near enough to the porta potty to warn people not to go in there….so technically, she wasn’t abndoning the baby. had she called someone to alert them and was waiting for help? giving birth isn’t easy even in the hospital with the whole staff around to help. i’m wondering (especially if it’s true that she didn’t know she was pregnant or maybe knew but didn’t know how far along she was) if she could have sort of been in shock or something. i could be way off, but i would just think she would have removed herself from the area if she wanted to abandon it.
    i don’t think dcs would remove the baby just because that’s where she gave birth…maybe the baby tested positive for drugs or alcohol?

    I can see in CERTAIN very rare cases a woman might not know it, but come on… how can you not tell there is a baby growing and kicking inside of you?? With both of my pregnancies I grew huge! Big ol belly, and not just belly, but a nice hard belly cause it was full of big ol baby! Plus the kicks, the braxton hicks contractions, all of it. I just dont get how someone can go 9 months and not know? Thats just crazy to me.

    Drop the 44 year old idiot into the tank, and leave her there for a week or two. I can’t even come up with words to describe my feelings about what his woman did. It makes my skin crawl.

    Whether or not she knew she was pregnant ceased to even be a consideration once she actually GAVE BIRTH. At that point she damn well DID know…and put the baby in a tank full of sewage anyway. Did she really think that the “I didn’t know” angle would be sufficient in this case? Is she stoned…or just stupid?

    This is just disgusting. I thank the Lord that above and beyond everything that happened that this child survived. I also don’t buy the “didn’t know she was pregnant” story but even IF she didn’t know, you would think that being human, she’d feel something toward that little baby and do the right thing. I just can’t understand how a human being can do something like this. I will never ever be able to comprehend it, and I think I am glad that I don’t.

    To Samantha and Ihavekidstoo,
    Pregnancy has a specific set of symptoms, as does any body changes. If you do not gain weight, do not stop bleeding, and do not feel sick, how are you supposed to know you are pregnant? I am a mother of two and in nursing school. In fact, pregnancy mimics many other conditions. Who here has not had weight gain at some point? Or gotten sick from something they ate? If you don’t experience all of the symptoms, or the symptoms are random and unconnected, you may not know you are pregnant. It does not excuse what this woman did. She should have called for help the minute she began giving birth. Thank goodness the baby is ok.
