Need to use the bathroom? Leave your kid with a stranger

23-year-old Silvia Marcial was arrested in Sacramento, California after she left her 1-year-old son with a stranger.

She handed over her kid to a homeless woman. When she didn’t return the homeless woman took the child to her camp.

When Marcial returned and the homeless woman and her child wasn’t there she called police. The homeless woman returned the child with no issue and Marcial was arrested.

Marcial claims that the reason she left her son with the woman was because she needed to use the bathroom. I’m sure it had nothing to do with anything illegal.

I remember being a young child and being dragged into many a women’s bathroom by my mom when she needed to go. Especially at 1-year-old when kids really don’t know what they may be witnessing why would you not take your kid with you?

Thnaks to Sarah for the tip.

Father disappears after daughter dies from abuse

Family Wants Body Of Killed Stockton Girl:

This story is a reversal in what we normally see around here.

38-year-old Maria Bettancourt of Stockton, Calif. has been arrested in the abuse and torture death of 3-year-old Guadalupe Correa. The autopsy showed that Guadalupe died from trauma but police aren’t going into much detail.

Bettancourt is the girlfriend of Guadalupe’s father, Alberto Correa. Correra has disappeared in the wake of his main squeeze’s arrest. Which makes one wonder if he was involved or complicit in the abuse.

Guadalupe was raised by a foster family who had her other two sisters but were forced to give up Guadalupe to the sperm donor. Biological parental rights should never outweigh the welfare of the child.

BTW, Ms. Bettancourt looks a lot like Captain Lou Albano.
