I noticed!!! That interview has me convinced that the mother is probably a sociopath and guilty. If that were ME and my baby was still missing I would be a wreck and swearing to quit drinking and whatever else it might take, ANYTHING, forever, if I could just get my baby back. I’d be desperate and ready to trade God my own life for my baby...this woman is NOT behaving like a normal mother! I also thought that the fathers behavior spoke volumes. I think he knows she did it but is lying to himself.
My take—Mom wasn’t used to dad being gone in the evenings. Had a number of glasses of wine (as many as 10 by her count). Puts baby in for her bath, passes out drunk while baby is still in bath. Dad comes home. Here’s where we have some of the truth in their story. All the lights in the house were on and the front door is unlocked. Right, because mom never shut the house down, she was passed out. Dad finds baby in the bath, drowned, wakes mom up, both panic. Dad decides to help cover up the death, because they have the other two kids, and he needs her to take care of them. If she goes to jail, who takes care of the other kids? So, they hide the body and the phones, make up a story, and call the cops.
Now, I’m not completely sold on the drowning, but I’d lay good money on something that qualifies as negligent homicide, happening to that baby while mom was passed out drunk.
If one of my kids was missing I would be a complete basket case. The mom's behavior just doesn't seem normal given the circumstances.
