News "story" is certainly not.
Rope, neck, deep hole.....drop .....
wow, that’s a real real hard 22.
“Temperatures in the area reached 27-below-zero, with wind chills dropping to minus-40 degrees, according to local weather observations provided by police.
With wind chills of 40 below, experts say frostbite can set in in less than 30 minutes.”
There are some other people who should go to jail for the same sort of crime: http://dailycaller.com/2014/03/03/school-forces-half-naked-sopping-wet-student-to-stand-outside-frostbite-results/ Oh, but I guess since they are screwl teachers and/or administrators, everything’s good.
poor baby girl :(
Emergency services personnel.
Don’t care for the kid in the womb don’t care for the kid after. Pathetic and something I will never never understand..
Just smh. Some people.
That said, why was the dead six year old girl arrested, and was the home really identified as her cousin?
Wow she looks like the girl; who can’t read cursive, who testify in Saint Trayvon trial.
You are knit-picking about journalistic standards, I see. Bravo.

That’s a strange looking turtleneck sweater.
Poor little thing. RIP.
I have been to Bemidji many times, but not in the winter.
Dont care for the kid in the womb dont care for the kid after. Pathetic and something I will never never understand
The problem is to most of us a child is so much and must be taken care of to love to raise to be a good citizen
But to them the child is a cash crop just like the cows I use to have if I lost one and I did I felt bad but that was life
To them its just a cash crop adds to government check that is all
Oh damn it these stories make you sick.
With two littler kids plus her well, where the hell is their dad at?
Been awhile since I last set foot in Bemidji and it’s exciting to see that the complexion has changed.
She hasn't been missing any meals.
I had a feeling that they were Amish.
The sperm donor? Probably breeding more welfare kids.
It can "set in" a LOT quicker than that. I grew up in Bemidji. I lived just across an athletic field from the college swimming pool, and I was on the swim team. I would get up for morning practice, and run across the field to save time. It was a quick run, so I wouldn't always dress properly for the weather since I would put on a swimming suit when I got there, anyway.
One cold, windy morning, I quickly ran to the pool, jumped into my suit, and jumped into the pool. I quickly jumped right out, again. My ears had frozen, and thawed quickly when I hit the water. It was quite painful. It also took several years before all the lingering effects were gone. I was probably in the cold for only two or three minutes. The run to the pool was into the wind.
