    IA-Father scalds baby with bath water

    http://wcfcourier.com/news/local/ced...9bb2963f4.html

    Martavis Lee Smith

    Smith told police he poured water on the 4-month-old baby's head to rinse her during a bath, but didn't check the temperature of the water. The infant received burns on a third of her body. The baby was initially taken to Sartori Hospital and later transported to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics burn unit.

    Police report Smith did not seek treatment for the baby

    I truly cannot think of a worse thing to do to a child then to burn them. It just horrifies me. So glad the baby is expected to recover fully. That is unusual with burns.

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:

    What is going on with burning these poor babies? This is the 2nd article I've read in the past 5 minutes.

    Thatnk God the mother took this darling to the hospital.

    To me, burns are the most painful wound to have. I'm saying a prayer for this little one.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.
