Woman Questioned in Kidnapping, Shooting (Murdered mother, snatched baby)
MyFox Houston ^ | April 18, 2012

Posted on 04/18/2012 8:12:38 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

HOUSTON - Deputies have taken a woman into custody in the case of a newborn infant who was kidnapped and the child's mother who was shot to death.

A capital murder charge was filed against Verna Deann McClain, 30, according to a FOX 26 News contributor. He says investigators with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office are questioning McClain, but that she has confessed to the crime.

McClain reportedly told her sister that she was about to adopt a baby, FOX 26 has learned. She told investigators she did not know Kala Golden, 28, the mother who was killed.

An Amber Alert was issued Tuesday afternoon for Keegan Schuchardt after the infant was kidnapped at a pediatrician’s office around 2:40 p.m. in the intersection of Burrough Park and Sawdust Road.

Golden was placing her newborn son inside her pickup truck when she got into an altercation with someone in a car parked next to her, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect shot Golden several times and took off with the baby.

Until we publicly expose the life and welfare world that brought this murderous women to do this, we won’t solve or learn anything.

Government abuse of the minority population IS TO BLAME. BRING IT TO LIGHT, sooner rather than later.

Let's put this in perspective.

The baby is white, the vic is white. If Obama has a sister, she would look like the perp.

My 21 year old (white) daughter has dropped out of nursing school. Don’t send your children to Rasmussen. Costs 5 times as much as a community college nursing program and won’t assist students one iota for the bug bucks.

Posting here because this murderous scum most likely got her RN because of her race and not because of academics. One that is a real nurse, doesn’t kill — period.

Wow, the article says that woman is only 30, she looks like she is 50, not to mention she is a murderous POS. I wonder if the MSM will raise he** about this murder and insist that blacks riot until she is executed?

According to the affidavit, McClain’s sister, Corina Jackson, had recently said that her sister would be adopting a baby soon. After she allegedly killed Golden and stole her newborn, McClain stated to her sister that she now had the child. McClain has three children ages 16, 10 and 6.

“There were statements that were made by Ms. McClain that led us to believe this was an intentional act on her part, not that Ms. Golden was targeted specifically, but that this was part of a plan to kidnap a child,” Ligon said.

Witnesses said the mom fought to keep the baby from the kidnappers, but ended up in the parking lot with gunshot wounds.

“She was laying on the ground. She wasn’t moving for nothing,” witness Joshua Jesson told ABC station KTRK in Houston. “But then I saw a blue Lexus drive off in that direction.”

“The child was being put into the suspect vehicle and that’s when the mother tried to get into the car,” Lt. Dan Norris with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said. “The car sped away, knocking the lady to the ground.”

A BSN takes 4 years, not an RN degree. The latter takes 2 1/2 to 3 years. Anyway, from what I’ve read, the murderer was an LVN, not an RN.

According to this article from ABC News http://abcnews.go.com/US/baby-keegan-schuchardt-kidnapping-suspect-facing-capital-charges/story?id=16160951 the murderer/kidnapper is 30 years old and already has three children ages 16, 10, and 6.

She was 14 when she gave birth to her oldest child. That means she was probably 13 when the child was conceived. Then she went on to give birth two more times spacing each one 6 years apart; and the youngest is now 6.

In a Houston Chronicle article, http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Woman-charged-with-murder-in-baby-s-abduction-3490769.php it states she is licensed as a “vocational” nurse which I suppose is different from a “registered” nurse.

Ms Golden’s husband, Keith Schuchardt, took to Facebook on Saturday to report the birth of his son: ‘baby keegan is here. born 4/14/12 6 lbs 15 oz, 20 inches long.’ he wrote. ‘Looks like me lol.’

He arrived with Keegan’s grandmother Linda Golden and other family members at Conroe Police Department last night to be reunited with the infant.

But the Houston Chronicle reports that police want to carry out a series of investigations on family members before he is released.

Linda Golden said: ‘My daughter was brutally murdered protecting her baby. I think the baby should be given back to us. We’ve had enough today. We would just like our baby back.’

Friends and relatives have expressed their shock at the senseless crime. Friend Jennifer Hartis told KPRC: ‘She never did anything wrong. She’s just a mom doing her best to take care of her kids.

‘Keegan is only three days old. He’s needs to know his mom and he can’t do that now.’

Henry Schuchardt, Keegan’s paternal father, told the affiliate he was searching for answers. ‘I wished I knew, I wished I knew,’ he said. ‘I don’t know how they could do this?’

A licensed vocational nurse (LVN) is synonymous with a licensed practical nurse (LPN). Their day-to -day tasks revolve around caring for patients who have been admitted to the hospital due to illness. They take orders from their superiors, who are RNs (registered nurses) as well as physicians. Most of the daily tasks have to do with basic bedside care of the patients. These tasks include taking the patient’s temperatures and blood pressure; giving injections, changing wound dressings, and taking samples.

I couldn’t say. All I know is that my local community college offers RN degrees in that much time. The difference may be between straight class time and one’s practicum, or hands on training, in the hospital. It seems that there are more degrees now than then, like HHA, LPN, RN, BSN, LNP, etc. It’s bewildering!

Cases where a childless woman kidnaps a baby and kills the real mother are actually not so uncommon.

I’m not sure we can assume she conceived and bore the other children. She might have stolen them as well.

I remember a very gruesome case in Eastern Ohio around 10 years ago.

The murderer befriended a pregnant mother, then one day when she was in an advanced stage of pregnancy, she killed the mother and actually cut the baby out of her womb.

She (the perp) was quite heavy, so her friends and family were only a little surprised when she turned up with a newborn she claimed she had given birth to.

Someone got suspicious, though, and later the police found the dead mother buried underneath the floorboards of a garage, IIRC, and put two and two together.

She wasn’t childless, she has three children and she is 30 yrs. old. Her oldest is 16, then 10 & 6.

The name of the man who allegedly drove the getaway car has not been provided by police, but he could face the same capital murder charges that have been lodged against McClain.

This is many orders of magnitude worse than the Zimmerman case but it will likely get NO more coverage now that we know the races of the perp and the victim.
