The Trench Reynolds Report

All Crime Is Personal

Mom accused of poisoning her kids with intent to kill:

29-year-old Melissa Sawyers, who looks 50 in her mugshot, of North Augusta, South Carolina has been arrested for trying to poison her kids using the exhaust from her car. Sawyers allegedly hooked up a hose from the tailpipe to the inside of the car where the kids, ages 10 and 7, were,

Police say she allegedly told her kids that “they were going to heaven together and it would not hurt, they would just go to sleep and wake up in heaven.”

It seems that Sawyers is an upstanding citizen as well…

Police say this isn’t Sawyers first run in with the law. They say she’s been arrested several times recently for charges including trespassing, disorderly conduct, intoxication, and resisting arrest.

Police say she’s gotten out of handcuffs twice before during arrests, even kicked at a window in a police patrol car; and once resisting arrest so bad, officers had to taser her.

She’s looking at 40 years behind bars.

Thanks to Bridget for the tip.

    It is the beginning of August, summertime , children should be playing with their mums on the beach. What is happening when a mother instead prefers to kill her children.?
    If you cannot cope surely there is help out there . There must be someone you can talk to someone who can help you. Do not harm your children ‘instead ask for help. This mother must be at her wits end is prison the answer or some form of treatment. Mental health is an issue that needs looking at more closely.

    The only treatment she needs is carbon monoxide treatment. The same thing she was going to do to her kids. Put her in a car, in a closed garage, and let the car run till she goes to heaven (or hell) to wait for her kids.

    Another thing – after so many run-ins with the law, why were her kids still with her? I realize that each individual charge would not be enough to have the kids removed, but you would think that all of them together would have been enough to have her declared unfit…..

    Also, this article says nothing about the father. Was/is he in the picture, and was he aware that she was crazy as a sh**house rat?

    Another case of someone who needs to be on meds but isn’t. Thankfully, the kids were rescued. I hope the birth mother doesn’t get them back this time. Seriously, how many strikes does it take to finally be out?
