Police: Woman Left Infant Alone For Three Weeks Baby Is In Fair Condition
UPDATED: 4:26 pm EDT October 22, 2005
COVINGTON, Ohio -- Authorities said that a mother left her 7-month-old baby alone in her apartment for three weeks while she stayed with a friend.
Ashley Traylor, 20, was arrested Friday in Covington, about 30 miles north of Dayton. Her child is being treated for severe malnourishment and is in fair condition.
Traylor is being charged with criminal abuse, NBC4 reported.
Police said that the baby was nearly lifeless when he was found. They say he hadn't eaten or had his diaper changed in three weeks.
A friend that the mother was staying with said Traylor told her that her son was with a babysitter.
Friends said that Traylor is pregnant again and has a 3-year-old in foster care.
This woman NEEDS to be sterilized.
This is tragic.
Okay, this makes no sense to me. How could a child that young survive without water or liquids of some sort for that long?
That surprised me as well.
Frankly, it's impossible. There is something missing here.
I agree, no baby lives without care for 3 wks. Whoever the baby got dumped on must have walked out a few days ago.
Using her own name she is Traylor TRASH if you ask me.
My God. I don't have kids, but I cannot even begin to imagine this level of depravity.
I'm surprised it survivled. How could it go for 3 weeks without water?
The Peter Singer lefties should have no trouble with this.
I agree. Three days, ok, but three weeks...
In any case, take the next child away immediately and put the poor little thing in a good home (that means one mommy and one daddy, not an experimental one with two mommies and two daddies).
Yeah. He would have dehydrated. I'm wondering if he was older. Remember that toddler that was alone for a couple of weeks until her daddy found her?
Terry Schiavo was fine. What's wrong with this.
It's painless and harmless. That baby couldn't take care of itself any way. The mother knew that's what the baby wanted.
yup , big part of this story is missing ,... do the reporters think we'll buy this??
Wouldn't this be just a 82 week abortion?
The "7-month old baby" could be her goldfish, for all we know.
Yeah, she must have left him with someone.
I think Antonio may know more than he's letting on.
That's Antonio reporting what the doctor said ... but if the doctor didn't say that, one would expect a clarification from him at some point.
Maybe it's just a miracle. And I hope both children are placed in permanent adoptive homes post-haste, and the same with the baby she's expecting, as soon as it's born.
