Smithfield, N.C. — A 4-year-old girl remained in critical condition Sunday, two days after she was hospitalized for injuries suffered in what Johnston County authorities described as torture.

The girl's mother is at her side at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, said Tammy Amaon, a spokeswoman for the Johnston County Sheriff's Office.

The girl's mother had left her with Jonathan Douglas Richardson, 21, of Old Sanders Road in Smithfield, while she underwent military training.

Johnston County man charged in suspected torture of girl, 4

SNIPPED>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


Jonathan Douglas Richardson, 21, of 750 Old Sanders Road, Smithfield, was charged with felony child abuse with severe bodily injury, Bizzell said.

Richardson lives in a barn behind the home of his grandparents. A few weeks ago, his girlfriend of about six months moved into the barn with him, bringing her 4-year-old daughter, Bizzell said.

The girl's mother traveled to New Mexico on July 6 for Army Reserves training, leaving her daughter with Richardson.

The abuse was discovered Friday afternoon when Richardson took the girl to Johnston Memorial Hospital.

He told medical staff there that she had fallen out of a bed.

Investigators and social workers contacted the girl's mother, who immediately began traveling back to North Carolina and was expected back early today

In 2008, Richardson was found guilty of assault on a female, according to court records. He was ordered to enter an abuser treatment program and attend a domestic violence program in Johnston County.

Hmmm. Guess it was not very effective.

I am not bashing-why did Mom move in with a boyfriend of 6 mos into a barn that had no running water, and not only take her child with her, but leave her child with the man while she left the state? A man with a record??

Man accused in girl's abuse has record


A 4-year-old girl remained in critical condition Saturday as investigators tried to piece together the events that led to one of the worst child abuse cases Johnston County officials have ever seen.

Jonathan Douglas Richardson, 21, was charged with felony child abuse with serious bodily injury late Friday after he took the girl to Johnston Memorial Hospital in Smithfield earlier that day.

She had severe head trauma, was covered in cuts, bites and bruises, and she showed signs of being sexually abused, according to Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell.

The mother left the child in Richardson's care on July 6 when she went to New Mexico for Army Reserves training.

Bizzell said the child's mother was at UNC Hospitals by her daughter's side Saturday after she returned from New Mexico. Investigators also spoke to the child's father, who is in the Wake County jail on felony drug trafficking charges

Child dies in Johnston County torture case

Smithfield, N.C. — A 4-year-old girl who was severely beaten and tortured in Johnston County died from her injuries Monday evening, Johnston County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Tammy Amaon said.

Hospital workers contacted law enforcement authorities Friday after discovering Teghan Alyssa Skiba had cuts, lacerations, bite marks and signs of sexual assault, Sheriff Steve Bizzell said.

Teghan was taken to Johnston Medical Center by Jonathan Douglas Richardson, who claimed the girl had fallen off a bed. Teghan, who also suffered severe head trauma, was transferred to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill where she later died, Amaon said.

Beautiful, beautiful baby. Dear Lord.

This guy has three social networking profiles. The latest is private and shows him driving a tractor trailer. Where was pretty Teghan then? Probably safer than being with this POS.

Woody Wacker. He's a dunk hunter and well hunter. Many pictures of him Whack-M and Stack-M. He beats ducks and fish.

Obviously he's just an evil creeper, and just happens to hunt duck, and beat them about and then photograph it, but in this light it's pure ugly.

Smithfield, N.C. — A man accused of torturing a 4-year-old girl who later died told detectives he "lost it" and whipped the girl with a cord after she urinated and defecated in the bed they were sharing, according to search warrants (http://www.websleuths.com/news/local/document/7995652/) released Tuesday.

Teghan Alyssa Skiba, who had had cuts, lacerations, bite marks, head trauma and sexual assault injuries, died at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill Monday night, according to Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell.

Scapa for what I've learned so far the perps parents or grandparents were in the main house. Her mother supposedly was doing some field military training when this all went down. I don't know if you read the warranty's but this was a horrible violent end to thsi little girl's life.

I don't care if he was completely psychotic at the time he did this.

He deserves death.

Bring back the chair and gallows.

I'm so SICK of reading stuff like this only to learn the monster gets a comfy cell and a loooooong wait to suffer death. And even then, the condemned person is sedated, then the drugs are administered to stop the heart. WHAT? WHY? These monsters need to be AWAKE and CONSCIOUS and feel their lives being taken from them.

Do you know why the death penalty isn't a deterrent? Its because our system of execution IS NOTHING TO FEAR. They get long decades of confinement, and then in a lot of cases, the death penalty is later reduced to life without parole.

Make the punishment something that actually produces suffering. Make the executions happen FAST. The death penalty WAS a deterrent when the gallows still existed on the court house lawn.

I will end my rant now. Please forgive me.

This story made me sick to start with, but the latest has me in need of some ginger ale.

http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/7994619/

"Man accused of torture says he 'lost it'"

Story states that he whipped her with a cord after she defecated on the mattress they were sharing.

What would cause a child to do that? Sexual assault.


Story also states her father is "in Wake county jail on unrelated charges."



Here is her Dad's previous history- http://webapps6.doc.state.nc.us/opi/viewoffender.do?method=view&offenderID=0807681&searchLastName=skiba&listurl=pagelistoffendersearchresults&listpage=1

It was for B&E in 2003. I would assume Wake jail is similar.

The mother seems to have had better options than to leave her precious Teghan in a barn with no bathroom or running water. She chose to leave her with a 21 yo man with guns, drugs, alcohol, and an air mattress for them to sleep together.

I hope that the DA is looking at charges for the mother akin to what Amanda Young was convicted on in the death of 4 yo Emma Thompson.

A listener on the radio program this morning suggested that the mother was told Teghan would be cared for in the home. Again this was from a caller who claimed to be "in the know" about the situation. Still, fhc, I agree with you totally!! She had to have known about his "bi-polar" situation and most likely his criminal past. The case is far from closed and I suspect mom will be in some sort of trouble before it is all said and done.

Johnston County investigators seized an array of items from the barn where Richardson and Teghan were staying, the 2001 GMC pickup Richardson used to take the girl to the hospital and the house where Richardson's grandparents live. The barn, which is on the grandparents' property, has no running water or bathroom.

Items seized included an air mattress, a condom wrapper, a shotgun, a rifle, ammunition, knives, a camera, duct tape pieces, a green, leafy substance, drug paraphernalia, guitar string and a drop cord, according to a warrant

Awareness Programs Targets Child Sex Abuse

http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/8001048/

Durham, N.C. — The physical and sexual abuse that led to 4-year-old Teghan Alyssa Skiba's death (http://www.websleuths.com/news/local/story/7994619/) late Monday isn't unusual, according to experts, who say educational programs can prevent abuse.
Teghan had cuts, lacerations, bite marks, head trauma and sexual assault injuries. Her mother's boyfriend has been charged with murder and felony child abuse.
"Obviously, the death of this young girl is more unusual. Unfortunately, I don't believe that the abuse that happened to her is as unusual," said Nancy Kent, a child mental health specialist at The Durham Center.
Kent said she hears stories about sexual abuse every day in her work, and she cited statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that one-fourth of girls in the U.S. and one-sixth of boys are sexually abused.

If mom was living with boyfriend, then she knew this was a wood and tin shack with no running water and an air mattress.

Hence my confusion. I would like to understand. Given his history of assault and firesetting, this baby was going to get hurt. It was going to happen. But I want to understand Mom's choices as well.

I am so sorry Tehgan, that so many people who had the power to act in another way and protect you, didn't.

I won't throw stones at mom (not that anyone here has as yet, the criticisms I've read have not been spiteful) but I too have to wonder what on earth so many mothers are thinking when they expose their defenseless little ones to men who are mentally ill, have sexual assaults in their pasts, keep weapons close at hand, and overall would never, in a million years, pass the sniff test for us here? Why is there an epidemic of mothers exercising zero judgment in this way?

who failed to protect this defenseless girl? Mom, Family members (mom does not live in a bubble, where did her family members think Tehgan was while mom was gone?), POS perp, POS perp's grandparents (were they unaware their mentally ill grandson had this child out in that barn for ten days torturing her and if so, how?

So very sad, and once again, completely preventable! I am disheartened beyond belief that this scene continues to play out across our great nation, day after day, week after week. Sickens me.

Bob – Teghan was left with Richardson VOLUNTARILY by her mother. Found out her bio father – in jail on drug charges, correct? Sheriff Bizzell – yes correct.

Bob - Mom went to New Mexico for Army Reserves – leaves Teghan with a guy (Richardson) she met few weeks ago at bar, correct? Bizzell – Correct. Richardson said HIS sister is going to come and bring her kids – I’ll keep Teghan and all will be well. Richardson’s sister never even knew - never came with her kids.

Bizzell -THE WORST case of torture/ sex assault on a child in his career – seized evidence – shed/barn and in the home. Shed had power and a/c but the shed was filthy. Richardson says Teghan fell off air mattress that is only 8 inches off the ground. Sheriff laughs at how ridiculous that is. Mom had stayed there with Teghan. In interview at hospital mom says she scared of him but left Teghan with him ANYWAY!! Think about your worst images of this case and then multiply that by 10.

Bob –Community and my personal fear is that he will be found not guilty because of his bi-polar / I lost it comments.
Bizzell – no way jury will let that happen after they see the photos of shed, air mattress and other evidence and autopsy photos. This was completely pre-meditated and planned.

Mike – Mom must be distraught and I understand. She left Teghan there willingly - is there a chance she will face neglect charges? Bizzell – investigation is ongoing as we speak. We plan to question mom again, as well as others, every violation that can be charged will be charged on any person involved. This is a VERY STRONG CHILD ABUSE AND MURDER CASE.

Kristin – Richardson was living on the land of his Grandparents. How could they not know what was happening? Bizzell - Grandparents knew he lived back there and had seem mom and Teghan occasionally – They didn’t know mom had left – Rich kept the girl concealed. Bizzell said Grandparents are good, honest people. Bizzell reminds people that things go on in the next room in their own home that they don’t know about. ( kids on internet, etc.) Mike – What if Richardson’s attorney comes to D/A and asks for plea deal for life in prison - no death penalty. Bizzell - no way if this isn’t a death penalty case then there has never been one. Every one searching for justice old, young, community.


That is the end. If anything doesn't make sense let me know and I will clarify. I've kept my orginal word notes just in case.

So sickening. It seems these women pursue the man- even when he is a loser. How many of these cases involve the woman going to work and leaving her child with her new boyfriend who doesn't work, doesn't have his own home? This vermin convinced her that his sister would be coming and other kids would be there. Perhaps the mom was lonely and had been looking for a relationship and wanted this to work out. I know many many women that are looking so hard for the fairytale they don't see the reality. They are quick to get intimate and create an instant relationship and every single time I have seen it end. Not once have I seen anyone that jumps in too soon work out the way they fantasized it would.

My heart breaks for this sweet little girl. What a tragic, horrific end to a beautiful little girl's life.

FWIW, I absolutely love this sheriff. I think if anyone can get justice for Teghan, it is him.

He is awesome but the D/A is a woman and she has children and Bizzell said this morning that he is going to do every thing in his power to see to it that she gets the case. She's pretty darn awesome herself. Yes - little Teghan will get justice.

I am not sure I ever recall a member of LE stating in the press that there will be no plea deal on a case. That is one aggravated interviewee. Thank God.

So Richardson did plan his assault of the baby and Mom was likely targeted because she had a baby girl. Wow.

Good for her that she had some common sense about being scared of him. Pity she left someone who could not defend herself with him anyway. If the case is substantially correct as stated by this member of LE, mom needs punishment outside of the obvious loss of this precious life. JMO. Because Teghan suffered. A LOT.

This is why the whole story has to be told and everyone has to face the consequences. The consequences for the person who was biologically connected to this child has to resonate so that it makes an impact on the next young single mother with a child in tow who decides that it is more important to have a man, any man, than to protect someone she is morally bound to have come first.

I am not being judgemental. This is JMO.

As mothers (and fathers, but especially mothers) it is our responsibility to protect our children. That does not include dumping a preschooler with some "hawt" crazy guy we just met in a bar.

Kristin – Richardson was living on the land of his Grandparents. How could they not know what was happening? Bizzell - Grandparents knew he lived back there and had seem mom and Teghan occasionally – They didn’t know mom had left – Rich kept the girl concealed. Bizzell said Grandparents are good, honest people. Bizzell reminds people that things go on in the next room in their own home that they don’t know about. ( kids on internet, etc.) Mike – What if Richardson’s attorney comes to D/A and asks for plea deal for life in prison - no death penalty. Bizzell - no way if this isn’t a death penalty case then there has never been one. Every one searching for justice old, young, community.


That is the end. If anything doesn't make sense let me know and I will clarify. I've kept my orginal word notes just in case.

Just wanted to thank you TSG! You made perfect sense. Good shorthand.

TSG, this may be a backward question. I'm from up North in a big city. I know nothing about duck hunting or hunting at all. For me seeing the Myspace of POS I mean POI that freaked me out. Beating ducks is that a woody wacker? I am sorry again if that is inappropriate. I know that hunting in itself for heaven's sake would have nothing to do with being a monster I meant more the element of beating them with a bat like weapon.

I know alot of people that have hit fish they caught do the same and they are normal, kind, caring people. I am just trying to understand the wood beating?

Thank you again for caring for sweet Teghan and informing us.

I know that it must be tough on single mothers out there. I feel thankful that I have never had to deal with that. I've been married for almost 27 years and we have a 22 year old daughter. At the same time, I feel sure that I had I been in that situation, I surely would have made better choices than these women do. While I have no personal experience on this, I have heard from many single mothers and previously single mothers on here who have made better choices and did put their kids first.

Does it come down simply to the fortitude and strength of the mother? Is it simply situational? Is it that these mothers don't come from homes any better than the ones they are providing for their children (Note: This one I am very unsure of. There are too many instances where many of us have had rough childhoods and turned it around in adulthood)? I wish so much that I could understand this seeming epidemic. Sometimes it is very clear that the mother doesn't care about the child or what happens to it, but there are others where the mother seemingly loved the child, but made the same dumb choices. I just don't know what to think.

I'm sorry Salem. I should have been more clear this morning. My apologies. I have been looking to see if the interview has made it to the web site yet. I can link the radio station and there is an area called Bob the Bounty Hunter. If it is posted it SHOULD be posted there. It USUALLY takes them 24 hours to get it linked. They also have Bob & the Showgram on demand. Their show runs from 6 in the morning till 10. Here is a link to the on demand section. I have no idea what segment it will be on but it was right around 9am EST. I'm at work and can't listen right now but maybe some kind poster will find it. Today's Wheel of Wednesday was being hit in the face with ping pong balls. That was at around 8 am so if you find that web cast you know that the interview should also be up. As I said it usually takes 24 hours for the updates.

I wish I could answer your questions but I know nothing of hunting. Woody whacker means nothing to me. Maybe someone else may know.

Ya' know I care about all these kids - the ones dead, alive and missing. Some get to me more than others. This one has bothered me so much because it is literally in my back yard. Don't get me wrong I hope the Sloops rot for what they've done too, it's just that this one is getting to me in another way completely. I can't quite put my finger on why.

My heart hurts so much for cases like this because there is nothing I can do about them. I mean, I wish I could have just bumped in to little Teghan in a grocery store, known something was wrong, and get her the help and care she needed. But instead, she was on the other side of the country in a barn I will never see. It is so incredibly frustrating that people don't take care of their children! The smallest, innocent and sweetest babies. It's devastating.

Doesn't the mother have any family? And if not, how on earth did she get into the Army Reserves without anyone to care for her child?

panthera, he talked Reyes into leaving Teghan with him. He told her his sister was coming with her kids. What? Like for a month? Six weeks? Yeah, that makes perfect sense. Then the woman claims she was afraid of him?

Seriously what is up with that? Apparently Teghan and Reyes lived with her mother prior to this hook up. Teghan's dad's aunts said they would have cared for this child.

If she were afraid of him, I think it only makes it worse that she would leave a defenseless child with him. Leaving a child with someone she believed was a great person is one thing. But leaving a child with someone she says she was afraid of? A 21 year old guy who has no biological connection to the child?

Vigil honors Johnston County domestic violence, abuse victims

http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/8012551/

Smithfield, N.C. — A candlelight vigil on Thursday will honor the lives of four people who died recently of domestic violence or abuse in Johnston County.
Harbor, Inc., a non-profit shelter, crisis and counseling group which helps victims of domestic violence, is sponsoring the vigil at 5:30 p.m. the Johnston County Courthouse in Smithfield.
The most recent victim, 4-year-old Teghan Alyssa Skiba, died at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill Monday night. Investigators said the girl had been sexually abused, beaten and bitten in a barn behind a Smithfield home. Her mother’s boyfriend, Jonathan Douglas Richardson, 21, has been charged in her death.

Suspect in girl's death: I 'lost it'

http://www.newsobserver.com/2010/07/21/590752/suspect-in-girls-death-i-lost.html


Bizzell said that in interviews with investigators, Reyes said that she was sometimes afraid of Richardson.
"You would think that if she was afraid of him, and if she knew the conditions that she had resided in with him, that she would have used some common sense before leaving that child with him in those conditions."
Neighbors said Tuesday that they didn't know Richardson or the girl, but they spoke highly of the Creeches.
"They're wonderful people that have been victims in all this," said Vicky Smith, who lives next door.
Tommy Harris, another neighbor, said he knew Richardson was living in the cabin out back but didn't think much of it. "That wasn't my concern," Harris said.
"This investigation is in no ways over," Bizzell said. "Anybody who was directly or possibly indirectly involved that meets the level of a crime ... we're certainly going to be pursuing them.
"Somebody's got to stand in for the little girl."

This whole thing just sickens me.

How have our men become so twisted and un-manly. Are we really evolving backwards at that alarming of a rate? Men are supposed to be the protectors, it's hardwired... or supposed to be anyways. I believe it's the result of centuries of inbreeding finally catching up. (You can all yell at me now and call me crazy. ;)

And as far as the mother goes. Shame on her! There is not a word in the english language to describe my distaste for what she has done.

I am a single mother. I have left my son alone for short periods of time with friends and yes boyfriends... but not friends or boyfriends I knew less than six months and met at a bar and was afraid of... my GOD! what was she thinking? Especially for a long term thing... in the eight years my son has been alive we have been apart for more than a work or school day only a handful of times. Each of those times not only was my son safe with one of his sets of grandparents, but he was overpacked, there were lists upon lists of things he likes and doesn't, I called daily, sometimes several times daily. If I couldn't get a hold of them for more than a few hours I would freak out and start calling everyone they knew until I found them... I can't imagine leaving my son for an extended period of time with someone I barely know... I just can't. My current boyfriend and I have been together for almost a year, we knew each other as friends for a year before that and I JUST started leaving my son with him for short periods of time and letting him take him to do guy stuff... but still I always make sure my son has his cell and my number on speed dial.

These days... there is not one person in my book above suspicion when it comes to the safety of my child. And that's the way it has to be unfortunately.

RIP little Teghan, you deserved a better fate than this. There will be justice for you, and I know on that day you will be smiling down on us from the arms of the angels.

I know exactly what you mean. I was a single mom with a 5 year old daughter. I NEVER EVER let her near any guys I dated. Her bio dad (she calls a sperm donor) had her every other weekend so I dated on those weekends. I met my now hubby (Brian) just after she turned six. I dated him exclusively for 5 months before I ever even let her meet him. Brian had an in ground pool and I took her over to go swimming. Oh my lord he fell in love with her and she with him. We dated another year or so before we decided to get married. In that time I slowly built up to her spending more and more time with Brian but I watched like a hawk!!! We eloped to the Bahamas and got married. We decided to have ahuge reception at home. I had no idea Brian was going to do this, but when we got back, in front of his family and mine, he gave our daughter a ring too and promisee to always love and protect her. That was 16 years ago. I'm happy to say I know I made the right choices when she was growing up. I kept her safe - I'm her mom and that was/is my job!!! It wasn't always easy and Brian and I fought at times because I refused to leave her with a sitter unless it was my mom. In the end, though I think he knew how much she meant to me...and still does.

I am a single mother. Fortunately, I have a wonderful relationship with my son's father. I have a social life and boyfriend-ish type people I see while he is at his father's.

None of the men that have been in my life have ever had any contact whatsoever with my son. They do not stay in this house with him, they do not meet him, they know his name and that's it.

Perhaps, a very long ways down the road, if the relationship I am currently in was to mature that would change. The man I am seeing has his doctorate and a job and a home etc etc. Who the hell sees some duck bashing LOSER that seems unemployed, lives in a barn and keeps those kind of social networking profiles? With a kid/ without a kid?! I mean his IQ appears so low you would have to dig for it!! Frankly, I think he comes across too dense to be bipolar.

Come on, ladies, raise your standards. Date men with jobs and careers and goals. If I can find them, trust me, it's not that difficult.

I don't sit in judgement of anyone but if I was this child's mother I would have taken my gov't issued firearm and immediately shot myself in the head. I could never live with this kind of guilt. Ever.

I will never understand what happened to Teghan or how she could have ended up in that location in the first place, let alone that situation. I hope the mom gives some answers!

PS- I thank the locals who will devote their time and attention to be a voice for Teghan. She obviously didn't have anyone speaking for her while she was alive. Bless you all.

They need to get some freaking standards. I live by the wise words of Young MC.

Got no money and you got no car? Then you got no woman. And there you are.And that's just to hang out with me! Hanging out with my kid would require some pretty extensive history with me. On top of having a job, some goals and the ability to enrich my life on some level. Isn't that kind of the point?

Seriously, thank you all so much for helping me keep this case alive. I know this is gonna sound crazy but one of my friends spent 17 years in prison for rape - he did not committ.

Seriously, thank you all so much for helping me keep this case alive. I know this is gonna sound crazy but one of my friends spent 17 years in prison for rape - he did not committ. DNA exhonorated him. The young girl that accused him is now one of his closest friends. He is truly a good man with a good heart that was put in the prison system in error. He is outraged by this case and he plans to be with me through out the hearings and court dates. He has been through hell and back yet HE still cares enough to stand up for Teghan.

Finally some news about this! I was wondering what had happened regarding this paperwork, which is standard in the event something happened to Reyes.

Also from the link:


"Sheriff's investigators say they, too, want to see Reyes' family care plan, said spokeswoman Tammy Amaon. More charges may be filed, Amaon added."

The death penalty seems to easy in my opinion. At most a few minutes of pain and he's done. Doesn't seem to compare to what Teghan went through. No, I'd almost rather see life without parole and let him live the rest of his life going through some of what he put her through. Seeing as child abusers are considered low lifes even in prison. Seems like he should have the chance to understand what he did to this beautiful child very clearly. No, I'm not against him getting the death penalty, it just doesn't seem fair to give him a pretty quick death after what he condemned her to.

Thank you fellow NCers for what you're doing - I was sadly unaware since working 2 jobs right now keeps me shielded from the news.

Topsail, any word on who is defending this POS? Court appointed?

Had lunch with a dear friend the other day that is retired Raleigh PD and still has links to RPD. He has a granddaughter Teghan's age. Oh I wish I could write what he said. He is usually very level headed and doesn't spout off. Not this case. I asked if he thought that the Mom would be charged, he said "Justice will prevail. You just don't know what is going on inside the case. We will find out eventually."

I hope he has nightmares about her every night for the rest of his life. I hope she rattles his bars and whispers in his ear. I hope he sees her face in front of his eyes every time he opens or closes them. I can't accept that there are people like this in the same world I live in. And there are so many just like him. How can it make someone feel like a man to hurt a small child that can't protect themselves? I know there are women just as bad. I don't understand why these things can't be stopped when there are so many people who care and are wrecked by these stories. So many of them don't even get life in prison. Why does the justice system feel that a childs life is less valuable than that of an adult? Why are there mothers who will dump their kids on anybody, so long as they don't have to take care of them, regardless of what that person may do to them? Why was this mother afraid for herself, but not her daughter? I'm just so disgusted. My heart hurts for all of these children.

Filly,

I wish I could answer your questions but I know nothing of hunting. Woody whacker means nothing to me. Maybe someone else may know.

Ya' know I care about all these kids - the ones dead, alive and missing. Some get to me more than others. This one has bothered me so much because it is literally in my back yard. Don't get me wrong I hope the Sloops rot for what they've done too, it's just that this one is getting to me in another way completely. I can't quite put my finger on why.

I asked someone who is an avid hunter/fisherman. It can translate to "spanking the monkey", "climbing the flagpole", etc. He is a Pervert!!

I know a lot of people (being in the medical field), who are bipolar. There are 2 phases of bipolar disease, mania and depression. A person who is bipolar and violent is pretty rare, as bipolars are usually hardest on themselves. In manic phases they can have issues of impulsivity, that can lead to criminal behavior, but not usually violent behavior. Please note, I didn't say NEVER, just that violence by a bipolar person is uncommon.

Now there are schizophrenics, dual, or even triple diagnosis patients who are INSANE and will be violent, some even living to plan their next violent attack! Even their numbers are small. Most mentally ill people hurt themselves, before they even think of harming anyone else.

This person, (it makes me sick to associate him with a normal human being) is insane enough to believe that he had the right to abuse, violate and cause the death of this innocent child. He is one sick (insert every swear word I know, here, please). Her "Mother", who was afraid of this piece of trash, was too concerned with herself, to protect her four year old. Did she leave her daughter with him because she was too lazy to do better by her, or was she leaving her there to protect her own back end, so he wouldn't be violent against her?

Ummm, yea, don't worry, my sister and her kids will be around to get your daughter, when it suits her.

How was he going to explain the cuts, bruises, sexual and mental trauma when she returned after two weeks?

I hope and pray for justice in this matter. How many more children must die before Americas' law makers and Mothers across this nation wake up and things change?

God bless us all on judgment day.

I am so sorry Tehgan, that so many people who had the power to act in another way and protect you, didn't.

I won't throw stones at mom (not that anyone here has as yet, the criticisms I've read have not been spiteful) but I too have to wonder what on earth so many mothers are thinking when they expose their defenseless little ones to men who are mentally ill, have sexual assaults in their pasts, keep weapons close at hand, and overall would never, in a million years, pass the sniff test for us here? Why is there an epidemic of mothers exercising zero judgment in this way?

who failed to protect this defenseless girl? Mom, Family members (mom does not live in a bubble, where did her family members think Tehgan was while mom was gone?), POS perp, POS perp's grandparents (were they unaware their mentally ill grandson had this child out in that barn for ten days torturing her and if so, how?

So very sad, and once again, completely preventable! I am disheartened beyond belief that this scene continues to play out across our great nation, day after day, week after week. Sickens me.

Smart thinking Debbie. I have to agree you are doing the smart thing, especially with a DS child. Disabled children, I feel, are much more vulnerable because they often have difficulty verbalizing. This gives the perp a sense of safety in that they don't think the child will or can tell on them. I know that I personally wouldn't take the chance. That's JMHO.

Re: Child Protective Services Involvement with Teghan Skiba

In compliance with North Carolina General Statute 7B-2902, Wake County is releasing a written summary of findings and information concerning Child Welfare actions with Tehgan Skiba.


Monday afternoon, the social worker, supervisor and program manager went to the hospital. They supervised visits with the mother, maternal relatives, and paternal relatives. They arranged for the father, Mr. Skiba, to be allowed to participate by telephone in a meeting between physicians, Child Welfare, the mother, and her sister to discuss Teghan’s condition.

I just can't wrap my head around this. Teghan should still be alive. She should NEVER have been in those living conditions with that monster. :banghead: :banghead:

Hmmm. Guess it was not very effective.

I am not bashing-why did Mom move in with a boyfriend of 6 mos into a barn that had no running water, and not only take her child with her, but leave her child with the man while she left the state? A man with a record??

We can only say mom has her blinders on :( My niece does the same thing - going from man to man with no regard to her little girl. Scares me.

People who do not follow the news, or WS's, have no idea what goes on out there. So wrapped up in a bubble that they can't imagine someone would hurt a child.

I'd love to crawl into a bubble myself, but know that's not reality. Especially after reading the daily news posts here :(

Was it just being a spiteful *itch to keep her away from the paternal side? Is your child being tortured and murdered better then letting grandparents have her?

I am too, Topsail Girl. I wish she was being charged more harshly too. I wonder if the negligent child abuse was the harshest crime they could charge her with that would stick.

I can't help but wonder if Teghan cried for her mom to come rescue her from the nightmare she was living in, only to have her cries unanswered. Her mom left her there knowing she likely would be abuse because she had already witnessed it before.

I have a question.
Why kidnapping? I don't understand that charge because the "mother" left her there. I mean the mother has been charged with that. So where would kidnapping come in?

Same thing in Shaniya Davis' case in NC. Her "mother" let MAM take her to settle a drug debt. The "mother" has been charged for it. So why kidnapping?

Anybody else confused on this?

Don't get me wrong, I think all involved with both cases should get as many charges filed against them as possible, I just don't understand how you can charge one person for allowing the person to have a child and charge the other for kidnapping.

tlcya
09-08-2010, 10:06 AM
I too am confused by the kidnap charge, both here and in little Shaniya's case. No one has been able to explain it to me.

Maybe he refused to give her back or refused to give her to bio family once they realized Mom gave the child to him to watch.

Kimberlyd125
09-08-2010, 03:53 PM
Maybe so believe, but I don't recall reading anything about the mother asking for her back. And, if the relatives asked, he would not have to give her to them I don't think because the mother left her there.

Is this some odd way NC charges perps in cases like this? I've only seen this 2 times, both young girls, both in NC, both "mothers" allowed the men to have/keep/torture/beat/kill (you get the picture) the children. Both "mothers" have been charged. I just don't get it.

tlcya
09-08-2010, 03:57 PM
I specifically recall when this case first broke that the mother's family were unaware that she had left the child in this man's care or they would have objected and intervened. I also specifically recall that the mother did not request he return the child to her as she was away at military training.

So the mystery is still there for us kimberly. I really am stymied as to where that charge stems from. And the same MAM over on shaniya's thread, never could get it there either.

I understand it to be a charge that allows for a higher penalty for the perpetrator of that specific charge without affecting the penalties of charges against other perpetrators. Wait- does that make sense?

I'm thinking this is how the kidnapping comes into play here? Still trying to figure out NC law on this re: both Teghan and Shaniya (very different, yet the same on this charge?) Any NC attorneys, please speak up!

<1) whether the victim was bound, (2) whether the victim was injured, (3) whether the victim was moved, and (4) how long the victim was restrained.>

09-08-2010, 05:01 PM
Thank you Oriah, you may be onto something, perhaps when he restrained little Teghan that could be considered kidnapping. We were all thinking of it in the snatched from a parent without authorization variety of kidnap but restraining the child or preventing her from leaving or getting help in order to avoid further torture could I guess be termed "kidnap".

Thanks again for checking on that. I will await final word from a lawyer but I seriously think you may have solved our msytery.

I would like to hear from an attorney as well, but I do think that any of those situations could by law fall under 'kidnapping' in NC?

I served Jury Duty on a case where someone broke into a movie theater and made the manager go up to the safe and open it. Mind you, though, this is Georgia. The man was charged with robbery and kidnapping. We were told the legal definition of kidnapping was holding someone against their will. If Teggy has any kind of restraint marks, this is probably where this would come into play? And since Mom willingly left her with this ... Y chromosome ... she is culpable?

SMITHFIELD -- The campaign for district attorney in Johnston, Lee and Harnett counties is heating up as incumbent Susan Doyle and challenger George Murphy mount attacks against each other.
Earlier this month, Murphy, a Benson Democrat, announced that he had launched a website, thetruthaboutsusandoyle.com (http://thetruthaboutsusandoyle.com/). Against a backdrop of unflattering photos of Doyle, the site attacks her handling of the murder case against Tiffany Ann Bassett, who was charged with killing her boyfriend in 2006.

Marie,

JoCo (Johnston County) has had a lot of problems recently with the court system.

It is sad because they have the best sheriff in NC.

Put it this way, I recently got a speeding ticket there... NC is pretty lax on speeding (with in reason). Hire a lawyer, it'll be taken care of. I was worried that wouldn't be the case, it still was. They had a big issue with DWIs being DROPPED recently. That isn't good.

Suspect in girl's death: I 'lost it'

http://www.newsobserver.com/2010/07/21/590752/suspect-in-girls-death-i-lost.html

Tommy Harris, another neighbor, said he knew Richardson was living in the cabin out back but didn't think much of it. "That wasn't my concern," Harris said.
This. This is part of the problem. We've gone from being nosy neighbors to unconcerned, look-the-other-way, neighbors. And we wonder why this stuff happens in or own back yards?

Otoh, there was this other case that occurred a few years ago. Unfortunately, I cannot recall what case that was, just the specifics. If I find a link to the story, I will post it. The basic gist involves a child who was rescued because a woman noticed something felt wrong when she observed the man and the child. So, she contacted the authorities. As it turned out, her instincts were right on. The child had been kidnapped. And, thanks to the quick response by local authorities, the child was rescued. Unfortunately the woman (hero, in my book) did not receive the reward that had been put up bc she contacted local authorities as opposed to the organization offering the reward.

{mini rant}
I'll bite my e-tongue wrt just how much that steams me. I will however note that we, as a society, might want to scrutinize how these reward systems seem to be designed toward raking in the cash as opposed to actually helping find the missing. Think about it. Had she called the reward line, her tip would have been filed away with others... and just maybe, whenever they got around to it, they might pass it on to local authorities, who probably file it away, because, well, the tip came in months ago.
{/mini rant}

Instead, however, she did the right thing. Called someone who could act immediately. The local authorities. And a child was rescued.

Anyway, the point of recounting the above is... just maybe being a little bit nosy isn't so bad after all? Just maybe...

Hello, I am new to this forum, but very interested in any news on the status of this case. As a resident of Johnston County, we were horrified by what happened to poor little Teghan. Her mother should be awaiting trial in jail IMO. As guilty as Richardson. And although I've read everything I can find on this, appreciate our sheriff, I still think the grandparents who own the property where this child was tortured should have been charged also. From what I could see on google maps, the out-building their grandson lived in was close to the home they lived in. He used their bathroom, etc. I find it hard to understand why they wouldn't have seen, heard, or checked their out-building. It's no further from their residence then my husbands workshop is from our home. I'm a grandmother too, I mow our property, all around our workshop. If this child lived on their property for some five weeks, why didn't they know about it?

This is a bit O/T, I work across from an elementary school in the middle of the city, one day at lunch i saw a man sitting in our parking lot in his truck watching the grade school across the street, at least 6 minutes I just watched him before I walked straight over to him and asked him "Just what the He!! he was doing". As it turned out he was a parent waiting for his child to get out for lunch, he son was walking towards us before our conversation was over. He was actually pretty grateful and impressed that I had gone over to speak with him. I am a FIRM believer in It takes a Village, and in my Village children don't get hurt. I still have his license plate number written down in my day planner, this was one situation I was glad I was wrong. It just takes a few moments to be aware of what is going on around you, the authorities as well would rather you call and have them investigate a situation that is innocent then say nothing at all.

I get what your saying about reward funds and things of that nature but I'm sure the woman in question is rewarded enough knowing she helped to rescue the child. Its a sad day when people are only willing to do the right thing once $$$ is involved, (not at all saying that this is the case with the woman you are talking about).

New charges filed in Smithfield child torture case

Smithfield, N.C. — A Smithfield man charged last year with torturing a 4-year-old girl who later died now faces child sex charges in the case.

A Johnston County grand jury this week indicted Jonathan Douglas Richardson on charges of child rape and sexual offense with a child.

Richardson, 22, of 750 Old Sanders Road, was charged last July with first-degree murder and child abuse in connection with the death of Teghan Skiba.

Good morning everyone. I read over this thread & can't believe I didn't know of this case! What an adorable little girl!

Re Helen: I did a search on Helen Roxane Reyes on Veromi, looks like her last place of residence was Raleigh. I searched on 411 & found a match for a Helen Reyes in Raleigh that is the same age as Helen. I think they're the same person but I'm not sure. I don't believe she's incarcerated. I think she's living in an apartment.

Helen's pos bf deserves every bit of the dp imvho. What a pos.

Teghan's dad seems to be doing good & turning his life around. Maybe Teghan's death was a wake up call for him... I found several pictures of him, nice looking & appears healthy, he's been doing event planning stuff, I think construction as well but again not sure. Teghan resembles her father.

Re the Army family plan thingamajig... I don't think it should be the Army's responsibility to make sure a plan is in place for the care of anyone's child(ren). I think its the parent's responsibility to secure care for their child(ren). I wonder if that care plan info will be made public? Maybe that will come out if Helen goes on trial. Imvho, with Helen being a single parent, I don't think she should have been allowed to enter the Army. I sort of think its akin to leaving your child with family while you go off to pursue a career. Teghan's daddy was already in jail so all she had was her mother. Helen should have at the very least waited for her ex to get out of jail so he could watch his child, or let a set of grandparents be given custody. Seems like Teggy was lost in all the drama with her parents, just like so many other innocent children are.

So. Freaking. Sad.
