Who doesn’t like a drink or two occasionally? How many of us remember the first time we drank and actually got drunk and sicker than shit? I remember the drinking part fortunately, I can not remember the getting sicker than shit part, but as I recall… I was a teenager NOT, 4-years-old. That was not the case for little Shakira Decelien.
Alpharetta, Ga Police responded to a call of an unresponsive child just after midnight on January 28th. Her aunt Mara Decelien, was waiting and told them that Shakira may have gotten into some rum and wouldn’t wake up. She neglected to mention that she had waited 3 hours before she called them regarding the little girls condition. BTW… rum does not taste good, in my opinion, I find it hard to believe a 4-year-old would continue to drink it after the first taste.
Shakira was transported to a local hospital where she later died of “extreme alcohol toxicity”; she had a blood alcohol level of .272, more than three times the legal limit for an adult driver.
Court documents accused Shakira’s father Wilguens Decelien and her aunt Mara Decelien of feeding the little girl alcohol in the hours before she died. Of course they deny all of the charges; as if we thought for one second they would admit to it.
According to police they found several liquor bottles and trash strewn throughout the home, as well as five other children. The children have since been removed from them home and placed in state custody.
Both the father and aunt face charges of murder and felony child cruelty.
