    Sounds to me like someone finally caught on that her stories weren’t matching. I hope the truth finally comes out in this story.

    Just wondering when she went in and kissed baby Cory goodbye before going to her boyfriends did she realize then that maybe baby Cory was dead then, and she left giving herself an alibi. Waiting to see what autopsy shows and how long Cory had actually been deceased before body was recovered. I believe the parents as well as social service let this innocent child down.

    I agree with most everyone else..This pathetic girl is as guilty as the guy they called a father. I also blame social services for not doing more to protect these helpless innocent little children. I think the system should take this tragedy and think about all the other children they have failed to protect and reconsider the steps to handling reports of Child abuse and neglect. Everyone in the community has been affected by the loss of this beautiful baby boy. It makes me want to hold my kids closer and tighter and they are teenagers. As a mother I could never imagine standing around and letting someone abuse my children. Drugs or no drugs…fear of someone hurting her..whatever Wardens excuse is..she deserves to suffer and be prosecuted to the full extent as well as anyone else who knew about this or witnessed any part of it. As far as the father I’m sure there is someone in jail that will make him “pay” for what he has done and he deserves it.

    I want to know since she was living with family how they didn’t know about the abuse? None of that makes sense.
