A 2-year-old girl from Wichita, Kansas, recently died after her mother claimed that the girl hit her head on a playground slide. You know the story by now though, after the girl was examined at the hospital her injuries were not consistent of that type of injury plus there were previous brain bleeds according to investigators.
Details are unclear how police came to arrest the woman’s boyfriend, 33-year-old Sly Maples, for the girls death. However reports say that the pair were only dating for 3 months and the woman and her daughter just recently moved in with Maples. So for as long as 3 months Maples may have been allegedly violently abusing this poor girl for Hell only know what reason. I’m not saying the girl’s mother intentionally lied, she may have just been relaying what Maples told her since she wasn’t at the scene at the time of her daughter’s final injuries.
Maples does have a previous history of violence as an ex of his filed a restraining order against him accusing him of choking her until she passed out.
First off to the single mothers out there be very selective on who you decide to enter a relationship with. It’s not wrong to do a background check on them since it means protecting your children. Secondly I have to once again address all the abusing scumbags out there who think they’re smarter than doctors and police. You’re not. You can try to tell them some bullshit story about how they ‘fell’ out of bed but you will be found out and you will go to prison for a long time. So how about not being an abusive assclown instead?
Also here is a good follow-up article on how to recognize the signs of continuing child abuse.
