DALLAS - This past weekend, one Terrell Walmart shopper snapped a photo of a checkout cashier whose face she found familiar. Hours later, her suspicions were confirmed.
She had just encountered one of the most notorious characters in North Texas of the past decade: Dena Schlosser, the former Collin County mother who in 2004, killed her baby by cutting off her arms during a so-called religious frenzy.
She was found not guilty by reason of insanity, committed to a mental institution, released in 2008, and recommitted to the state hospital in Terrell in 2010. In late June, she was hired by Walmart as a store associate.
But psychiatrists have declared her not to be a risk.
Still, word spread quickly on the Internet, and area residents we talked with expressed concerns.
For her to be in the hospital for such a short time, and then have the freedom that you and I enjoy, after what she did, I think is a shame and there should be an outcry from the public, said Natalie Elmoghrabi, a former Terrell resident who was in town for the day.
Others expressed disappointment in Walmart for hiring someone who committed such an act.
"I think they would have delved farther into, or something wasn't disclosed maybe, said Kaufman resident Rebecca Rodden. Maybe Walmart just doesnt know.
Late Monday, Walmart confirmed that Schlosser, going now by the name Laettner, was hired in June.
"Mrs. Laettner is no longer employed by the company," said Lorenzo Lopez, a Walmart spokesman.
Lopez defended Walmarts employment of Schlosser.
"All associates must pass a criminal background check as a condition of employment, Lopez said. If a charge does not result in a conviction, then we have no way of knowing an applicants previous criminal charges."
Lopez also says it would be improper to discriminate against prospective employees based on a psychological profile.
Yet they fired her Monday after News 8 raised questions about her past.
As to why the state has cleared Schlosser to mix with the general population, Department of State Health Services officials say patients are thoroughly assessed before a judge grants permission for their work release.
It is a bunch of voodoo
The larger story here....despite this sick bitch....is the true power of the Internet.
When....WHEN.....will Constitutionalists truly learn? The Internet is the ultimate spotlight. Use it. It drives cockroaches like this baby-killing bitch back into the darkness.
What other cockroaches can be driven back?
For the 3rd time today. We need to take a long hard look at the psychological profession.
You got that right!
Psychotic baby killer working at your Walmart (((ping)))!
Can you say “lawsuit”?
Six months from now she’ll never have to work again.
Pschychiatry is a guessing game and half the time they are wrong. Better to use a Ouija board.
Now that she is unemployed I think those shrinks should hire her as a baby sitter.
She’s likely not a risk to anyone but her own children.
(Yeah, likely’s not good enough.)
But it’s probably better for her to work at Walmart, than make babies with someone who doesn’t know or doesn’t care. And there’s nothing, not public outcry, not corporate a— - covering, not psychological opinion, not judicial order, stopping her from making babies.
You are correct! A local customer recognized her and notified the TV station.
Oh, that “workplace violence” offender? He was found in contempt of court for a second time for refusing to shave his beard. I say we raffle off tickets for the lucky winner to get the honor of shaving it off for him!
Next thing you know, they’ll have Andrea Yates checking out at some east Texas WalMart. Damn head squeezers ain’t worth a crap!!
Geez! Where is Andrea (PIA) Yates these days??
Psychology is nothing but manipulation of thought and psychologists don’t even have the decency to base it in any kind of morality.
“Can you say lawsuit?
Yes, I was wondering about that too. I’m guessing there was something she didn’t disclose, or something like that, which gave them grounds to fire her. Because otherwise absolutely she can sue & win.
Also, Walmart has a lot of jobs, they could have stuck in a back stock room or something, of course they don’t want her dealing with the public. I would probably not even go into a store if I knew such a scary person was working there.
Now, having said that, the woman is not in jail and I suppose not going to be in jail. That is a great miscarriage of justice, but still, she must eat. So, she’s got to do some job, somewhere.
You see, this is why jail is a good place for people that need to be kept of the streets.
How is it she was not treated other "insane" and put on trial for crimes once "sane" again? What father would get a pass?
She belongs in prison and so do the authorities who gave her a pass for butchering her own daughter.
