    FL - Vincent Collins & Savannah Sholter for starving disabled 2yo son, Hialeah, 2011

    Parents arrested for alleged child neglect

    HIALEAH, Fla. (WSVN) -- A mother and father are under arrest after police say their 2-year-old was living in filth.

    Hialeah Police said the 2-year-old was not alert and not breathing when police found the child in room 19 of the motel, which was extremely unsanitary. Investigators added that fecal matter was discovered throughout the room, along with overflowing trash bags and a dead animal.

    According to detectives, the child was malnourished and only weighed 15 pounds. There was also feces embedded in the child's skin, and the child had toenails that looked like they had never been cut.

    NEGLECT??? I believe this is ABUSE! This poor child. I heard this last night on the 11 o'clock news. I haven't heard any updates about the little boy.

    The article alsy says that parents had moved down the hall into a different room but the little boy was left to stay in that nasty room.

    I still don't understand how this is neglect and NOT abuse!

    $7,500 bail? You've got to be kidding me? And I agree...this is blatant abuse.

    How can LE get away with calling this child neglect, when it's clearly aggravated child abuse! 2 years old and 15 pounds (my son weighed that at about 5 months, if not earlier). Does this lesser charge mean they can get their child back. The thought horrifies me.

    MOO

    Apparently the have a second child that was healthy, that child has been taken too, thank god !

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

    The parents, 25-year-old Vincent Paul Collins and 21-year-old Savanah Lynn Sholter, were both arrested and charged with child neglect.

    They were each being held on $7,500 bond.

    Police say the couple has a second child who is now in the custody of the Department of Children and Families. An employee of the motel said the couple had rented out a second room with the healthy child and had abandoned the other baby in the first room.

    They allegedly told housekeeping not to go into the first room because there was a sick child in there

    the child was found not alert and not breathing?!

    that to me goes beyond neglect and abuse into murder territory

    I bet they thought he was dead and rented out the second room to get away from the dead body

    I just made myself sick with that thought ...

    just how long was this little boy alone in that room?!

    looks like she had time to log onto myspace while she ignored her toddler (last login Feb.17/11)

    warning: E. was born with issues and there are loads of hospital pics here of both parents with him that are HEARTBREAKING

    also, I'm gonna guess the dead animal in the room was of the black cat variety, just based on photos ...

    Yes, I just read that the little boy had a "health condition" since birth but I've yet to find out what that was.

    They probably had grown tired of caring for him - after all they told the maid not to go in there, there was a "sick child" in there. GMAB.

    or perhaps the dead animal was of the black dog variety ...

    Paramedics said the child had a preexisting medical condition that required him to have a feeding tube in his stomach.

    They should be thanking God that he was alive in the first place, not leaving him in a hotel room to die.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Or charges of attempted murder at minimum! If this poor baby dies, these 2 better get the death penalty.

    Just sayin...

    From her posts, she sounds like a drinker, possibly a druggie (ie, hasn't slept in 2 days). Picture of a witch person holding a gun.

    Severe warning signs
