29-year-old Nathaniel Roderick Hester of Dalton, Ga. has been charged with murder in the death of his one-month-old daughter Piper Hayden Hester. As much as I hate to say this but it’s the typical story around here about how she died. The autopsy revealed that she died from blunt force trauma but what really got to me is what happened after she died.
Piper’s mother found both the baby and Hester on the floor. Piper was not breathing and Hester was passed out. Police say that alcohol may have been a factor. Ya think? But he took off before paramedics and police arrived but came back before they left. He allegedly ignored the police orders to surrender. It doesn’t say if he got a smackdown or a tasering. With any luck he got both.
Thanks to Deborah for the tip.
