The face you see above is that of 22-year-old Richard Green. Last year, Green discovered that his girlfriend (and mother of his child) Natalie Critchley was having an affair with another parent that she’d met at the day care where she worked. Richard was pissed. So pissed, in fact, that he brutally attacked his daughter Lia Green, repeatedly punching and kicking the 3-year-old. She was later found unresponsive and not breathing at her home in Preston, England. She was taken to hospital but died shortly after arriving. At the hospital, doctors discovered that Lia was bruised from her neck down to her legs, suffering from injuries usually only seen in car crash victims. She died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen. She had been struck so hard in the stomach that her bowel was severed. What sort of sick piece of shit would do that to ANY child, let alone their own?
Lia’s egg donor isn’t much better. She is accused of allowing her daughter’s death by not calling emergency services until Lia stopped breathing. Even as the toddler lay dying in hospital, Natalie’s behaviour was described as ‘strange’ by hospital staff. She was allegedly more pre-occupied with texting than asking after her severely injured child. She is also on trial.
Not surprisingly, social services had been involved with Lia before. A social worker had visited the home following a referral, but reported no concerns for Lia’s safety. Just two weeks later, her father battered her to death. It didn’t matter how pissed he was at Lia’s egg donor, Lia was an innocent toddler. Nothing would have been justification enough for what happened to this little girl.
