The Worst Parents in the World

Parents who abused their children to death

By True Crime WriterPublished 2 months ago 3 min read

It takes a special piece of shit to hurt an innocent child under any circumstances. When a parent or family member hurts their own flesh and blood, it is safe to say they are a waste of fresh air and deserve whatever life throws at them. Meet three people deserving of the worst life can offer.

The Sad Case of Aleah Thompson: 10-Week-Old Tortured, S. Abused by Father as Mom Failed to Protect Her

In 2016, Robert Davidson of Rockville, MD, called 911 after he s**ually abused his 10-week-old daughter. She died in the hospital three days later. Investigators would soon learn the infant suffered tremendously at the hands of her parents during her short time on earth.

Lorena Thompson, Aleah’s mother, shared an apartment with Robert. When he called paramedics on June 28, he initially told detectives he’d been playing video games in another room when he heard Aleah breathing oddly. He checked on her, finding her limp and unresponsive. He also admitted that he had dropped Aleah several times and claimed she had rolled off a couch. He went on to tell authorities how he had repeatedly shaken Aleah and committed acts consistent with s. abuse.

Aleah Thompson’s autopsy revealed she suffered 34 rib fractures in various stages of healing and a broken collarbone. She suffered injuries to her eyes, head, and her spine. The Medical Examiner concluded that she had suffered tremendously since soon after she arrived home from the hospital. She said some of Aleah’s injuries were the result of her chest “being constricted.” Her cause of death was determined to be “multiple blunt force injuries.”

Police charged Robert and Aleah’s mother with various crimes. Lorena pleaded guilty to neglect of a minor because she failed to report the abuse caused to her daughter. She was sentenced to five years of probation. Robert pleaded guilty to first-degree child abuse leading to death, child sex abuse, and other child abuse-related charges. He was sentenced to 65 years in prison with 15 years suspended.

Grandmother Beat Granddaughter to Death, Slit Her Throat With Power Saw

Chicago woman Manuela Rodriguez was charged with first-degree murder in 2015 after she slit open her seven-month-old grandaughter’s throat with a power saw to stop the infant from crying.

Before slitting the baby’s throat, Manuela repeatedly struck her in the head with an unknown object. Rose Herrera was already dead by the time Manuela slit her throat.

An autopsy determined Rose suffered from “blunt force trauma to both sides of the head, had a sock shoved into her mouth, and deep cuts to the neck, throat, and chest.” Her cause of death was determined to be multiple blunt-force injuries to the head.

Manuela attempted to take her own life after killing baby Rose. She was transported to a local hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. After her release, Manuela was sent for a menthol health evaluation.

Friends, neighbors, and relatives described Manuelaas as a quiet but pleasant person. No one ever expected a woman as gentle and kind as her to hurt anyone, especially a child.

"She would help everybody and if you needed a glass of milk or something she would give it to you," said Maria Gentil, who has known Rodriguez for several years.

She did not have a criminal record at the time, nor did the Chicago Department of Children’s Services receive any complaints regarding her care of the infant.

My deepest condolences to the families of these beautiful children.

    I can't understand anyone who would hurt a child or baby in this way. I think it is just sick. No parent is perfect, but there is no reason at all for abuse.
