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.
wowee!![gulp] ,... click on link in post #19 ,... there's a special place in hell for this "mother"
That poor child! I pray he survives.
I can't believe that all these stories are based on what Antonio said the doctor said. I think he's covering his a$$. Authorities can probably verify that the mother has been at the friend's house for three 3 wks.
Any bets that she says she left the baby with his father, Antonio? Pure speculation on my part. My money is on Antonio being the AWOL parent for the past several days.
feed her to the hogs.
Thats what I was thinking, this lady and her cohorts have to be on serious drugs.
Is this anywhere near yall? There is more to this story.
Your interpretation is certainly reasonable. Whether the child ate or not can be confirmed by a direct quote from a doctor or police officer, if the news media follows up.
It's possible he was left with Antonio, or some other "associate," maybe the next baby's father (some men will scr#w anything with a pulse, obviously). The important part is that all the children be permanently removed from all these people, immediately.
"feed her to the hogs."
Did she think the baby could possibly survive, or was she trying to kill him? I agree, she should never be allowed to have another child. And of course, she should spend a long time in jail.
Well, the right ti privacy of the mother IS the most important thing.
God have mercy on America....look what's happening.
My first thought.... also make a good argument for her to not be allowed to have more children after this one is born. More than that, what kind of mental capacity do these babies being born to mothers using meth (and other drugs) have? That's something I'm very curious about.
The death penalty would be too nice for this slime.
Good question. I will endeavor to find out.
How the child was still alive after 3 weeks is a miracle. I hope the child makes a full recovery and never has to see his monster mother again.
It's strange. The location is noted as Covington, OHIO, but the address of the mom is listed as Cambridge Square complex off Taylor Mill Road, which is in Covington, Kentucky- right across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. Unless there is a parallel complex on a parallel road in these two communities?? Hmmm. Maybe if they got the location of the city wrong, they also got the info about days without water wrong. The MSM could never make errors, right? (sarcasm)
Nevertheless, unbelievably sad.
If you do, please let me know. I've been following this saga of Mindy McCready (the ex-Country star) and her drugs/drinking/suicide attempts and pregnancy and wondering what chance that baby has in life when it's being subjected to all this in the womb.
Oh, how dreadful. I'd seen something about her being in drug rehab, but I didn't know she was pregnant. Awful.
As soon as I find out, I will FReep you. I have a good friend who is an ER Surgeon.
Yep. Pregnant, attempted suicide a couple of weeks ago (because she broke her probation in Tenn. and doesn't want to be brought back to Arizona to stand trial for trying to defraud a local boat dealer out of 1/2 millions dollars in boats..... and kidnapping a couple to get out to the airport and out of town... it goes on she is a great example of someone out of control and an innocent baby going along for the ride in her womb.
Thanks.... these things really bother me... especially on my mind after listening to Robert Shapirro talk about his son's death last night on Larry King.
Oh, no. The poor baby.
Ok, Doctor Fellburg, my buddy, just told me that meth
on an unborn child:
1) birth defects
2) hiv, if mother uses needle(many do)
3) addition of the fetus to the drug
4) brain damage
He also claims meth is harder to kick than heroin. This is predicated on interviews with former heroin users, who kicked heroin, but seem unable to kick meth. SCARY
Pretty much confirms my thoughts on the matter. And, we end up paying as a society for this. Did you listen to Shapirro last night? Scary facts he was giving.
I missed it.
I didn't know his son had died from a drug overdose a couple of weeks ago -- and more that he had struggled with addiction for ten years and spent 8 months in a East Coast rehab.. Shapirro said what he'd learned about drug addiction was so jolting that he is dedicating the rest of his life to finding a way to stop or cure this once and for all.
