M-F woman held without bail in son’s death

No bail for M-F mom:

M-F doesn’t stand for what you think it does. It’s an abbreviation for Milton-Freewater, Oregon. Although after you read this story you might choose the other meaning.

26-year-old Loretta Maxine Polanco, who bears a striking resemblance to Jabba the Hutt, has been indicted on 47 counts as it pertains to the death of her son, 2-year-old Lucas Isaac Polanco.

It’s alleged that Polanco admitted pushing Lucas, out of frustration for crying, which caused him to hit his head on the bottom of a kitchen table. It’s said she also confessed to past abuse of Lucas. When Lucas was taken to the hospital he had a brain injury, a lacerated liver, and a separated shoulder. According to prosecutors in the weeks leading up to his death Polanco stabbed Lucas repeatedly in the back of the head with a the needle from a glucose meter.

Before she allegedly confessed Polanco said that Lucas had a seizure and hit his head on a piano and was bitten by his older brother. That’s so nice that she tried blaming it on one of her other kids.

It’s also alleged that that she delayed getting help for Lucas for two hours before finally calling 911.

If this was truly an accident any decent parent would have either called 911 immediately or rushed their child to the hospital. Waiting for two hours to get help sounds like someone who was trying to get their story straight.
