Sounds like a case of parents getting mad and losing control.

thats what I figured. I know of the guy, he's been in jail for assault and some kind of sexual misconduct. dont know of the woman any. I swear I am tired of hearing about children being abused. every day on the news there is a case of a child being raped, beaten, left alone, endangered, etc. it is getting ridiculous!!! If they dont want the children, give them to someone who wants them, and then do not reproduce anymore.

he was in jail one time only, for dui so im sure you dont know him as well as you think you do..
they laid the baby down asleep
checked on her an hour later she was not breathing they called 911 then called grandparents next door they came over and tried to revive her by any means possible sadley this included shaking her ...ems got her breathing took her to hospital then to uk where she was unhooked from lifesupport a week or so later and her organs were donated
she was not murdered or killed maliciosly
please dont jump to conclusions like the media is leading every one to

I know this girl...she is a nice person..the whole family is..the media will make you think anything when it comes to a case like this...more steak dinners for the cops...anything could have happened to that baby..these people grieve everyday for their loss and now the media will not let them be..just leave them alone and let them suffer in peace..if they did do this...they will pay for it..but I highly doubt they did it..

if something had caused the baby to just stop breathing in its sleep, they would have said that is what happened in the autopsy report and press releases. babies do not just stop breathing for no apparent reason.

and looks to me like he's been in there more than just once. DUI is not assault or sexual misconduct. the assault was earlier this year in march (according to jailtracker) and has also had possession of marijuana. looks like he'll be in court over the assault thing coming up. just makes him look a little less credible.

the media does not MAKE me believe anything. I can read and make sense of what I read. when I read in the news release that the autopsy report said the baby died as a result of blunt force trauma, thats a result of an investigation. shaking a baby or having a breathing disorder will not cause blunt force trauma. blunt force trauma means that someone either physically hit the baby in the head with something or hit the baby against something. and that is simply unbelievable and despicable.

A childs death is not ruled homicide if theres no reason. I dont know these people an i hope there innocent but.... a baby who dies from SIDS or shaken baby is not ruled blunt force trama. Wise up people something is wrong somewhere. No matter how well we think we know someone we dont truly know them. The media said nothin of shaken baby or sids and theres a HUGE diffrence between that an blunt force trama. I think itsme an trash might be upholdin a guilty party an i bet if it was there child things may be diffrent then again to uphold a child murderer doesnt say much of there character.

It's not what happened, as far as the judicial system is concerned.
It's not what happened.
It's not what the truth is.
It is what can be determined beyond a reasoble doubt by a jury of one's peers.
What can be proven in this case?
Not what actually happened.
Not what a doctor's report may state.
But what can be proved beyond a reasonable doubt?

I think you misunderstood me? I am not upholding anyone, obviously someone is guilty there. babies do not get blunt force trauma on their own.

babies can get blunt force trama for all sorts of problem when they get mobile on you. Some of the hyperactive infants and toddlers I have seen end up with all sorts of bruises that look like abuse but it is not. You can only spank them or send them to time out so many times before you give up or drug them/

the paper said there was extensive examination of the babys brain. babys don't get blunt trauma injury from their own actions that casues injury to their brain and they die. this baby was killed.

I agree this is how it is suppose to be, but it is not always the case. People are set up, lies told, and sometimes innocent people are jailed, although it's one person's word against another. Anyone can accuse anyone. The "law" sides with the most votes or maybe someone is making a little money on the side for them.
The sorry part: the "law" is sometimes the main player in the set up.
It's not Mayberry any longer. Right is not right and wrong is not wrong. Manipulation, power, and money are the deciding factors unfortunately.

the only reason the mother would have to be afraid of is she took of work that day was home with the baby herself all day father didnt get home till 5 pm from work. yet she never told him that ...maybe its because she is slipping around with a carlisle police officer...snedegar......the same one accused of messing with underage girls in bath county
so because she took off early from work that means she is messin around with the cop from carlisle? and this causes their baby to be killed in what way?

what is going to matter most is who was with the baby before the ambulance was called, as well as the extent of the damages that showed up on her autopsy, if they were recent or ongoing, which either way is really sad and awful to think about. regardless of any cheating going on, someone with a record of assaults and other charges may be more likely suspect, no?

no a mother with post partum that didnt really care alot for the child to begin with would be more suspect to me
