As I’m sure you’ve heard by now Elisa Baker, aka Sheen-Cow, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder charges in the death of her step-daughter, 10-year-old Zahra Baker. She also pleaded to bigamy, obstruction of justice and six other charges. With that plea, the bovine one was sentenced only to 14-18 years.
In my honest and yet amateur opinion, I believe the plea deal was struck because of the Casey Anthony outcome. Like the Anthony case, there was no definite cause of death for Zahra and I believe prosecutors struck the deal in order to prevent Baker from walking. I’m not saying I’m happy with the deal but I can see why they did it.
What I was most surprised to find out is that Adam Baker had nothing to do with his daughter’s death and dismemberment. I know I’ve been among those who swore that he had some involvement but according to police cell phone records and witness testimony prove that he had no involvement. I’m a big enough man to admit when I’m wrong and here I make my personal apology to Adam Baker. The only thing he is guilty of is making a poor choice in a romantic partner and I’m sure he’s been regretting that decision for a while. Especially since not all of Zahra has been found yet…
“No other remains were found,” Lt. Bobby Grace, with Hickory Police Department said. “We did not find her head, right arm, hands, right leg or upper left leg.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Sheen-Cow was using the location of Zahra’s remains as a future bargaining chip in regards to her sentence. The grifting continues.
