There’s not a ton of information on this, but 20-year-old India Kirksey of Cincinnati is accused of allegedly molesting a 4-year-old boy while livestreaming the act on Periscope. A number of media outlets say that Kirksey is a mother but no one is saying whether or not the victim is her child. Her family is saying that Kirksey has special needs, whether or not these needs mean that Kirksey is mentally incapable of telling the difference between right and wrong remains to be seen. The crime was reported by someone in Texas who had allegedly stumbled across the livestream.
While I’m not absolving Kirksey for her alleged actions, if I had to hazard a guess I would say there was someone on the other end of the livestream who probably encouraged Kirksey into her actions. Every time I’ve ever posted a story about a mother who molested one of their children, be it recorded or not, it was usually at the encouragement of a boyfriend. I’d be very surprised if we don’t hear news about a second arrest in this case.
I’ll post more details as they become available.
