Nutbag Mother Kills Infant in Clothes Dryer

My comments follow the article:

BOGALUSA, La. — A mother was booked on a charge of first-degree murder for allegedly placing her 3-month-old son in a clothes dryer and turning it on.

The infant had third-degree burns over 50 percent of his body and suffered blunt force trauma to the head, the St. Tammany Parish coroner said.

Police Sgt. Darryl Darden said Lakeisha Adams, 18, called police to her home on Monday to report that someone had killed her child. When officers arrived, they found Jailand Adams on a sofa. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Darden said Adams admitted during questioning to putting the infant in the dryer and turning it on, but did not say why.

Adams also has a 1-year-old child who was placed in state custody, police said.

If convicted, Adams faces death by injection or a life sentence. The first-degree murder charge is mandatory under Louisiana law because the victim was under age 12.


I cannot fathom the evil that resides in some people, the absolute lack of human decency, compassion or basic motherly instinct.

To place a tiny infant is a clothes dryer...rarely do I say this, but I do this time, wholeheartedly: lethal injection is too good for her.

I also must question the state here...why was the one-year-old taken from this mother, but not the three-month-old? Why was this baby left to its mother's deviant hands, to die in this hideous fashion?

I am sickened, sickened, sickened at the world today, at a world which can and has produced such a monster as Lakiesha Adams.

May that poor child rest in peace....

Sick, sick, sick.

I read the article to mean that the 1 year old was taken into custody at the point the mother was arrested, not prior to the infant's murder.

Ah, you may be right there. I was so angry, I don't think I caught that one right away. :(
