    NV - Kyla Franks, 6, stabbed to death, Las Vegas, 11 March 2012

    Police suspect mom's 'breakdown' in daughter death

    Police say they responded to a 9-1-1 call Sunday night and upon arrival they found Slaughter's 6-year-old daughter dead, Kyla Franks, dead in a bedroom of a northwest Las Vegas home.

    Slaughter was later arrested at valley hospital's emergency room. She was taken there after being found walking naked down the street with blood all over her hands.

    "Danielle then asked detectives, 'Did I kill my daughter? Is she dead?'" police said.

    -------------

    Slaughter admitted striking the girl multiple times with scissors, according to police, adding that she had never felt that way before and it was not "like" her.

    The interview ended with Slaughter repeating that she "wanted to remove the evil from the house," police said.

    Article states she was on hydrocycut, some kind of OTC diet pill. I googled "hydroxycut" + "mental side effects". Livestrong.com says anxiety, confusion, restlessness.

    Yep... no "thinking child is evil and stabbing them to death with scissors" listed as a side effect... I'm thinking there was something MORE going on here.

    Msfacetious, do you remember a case, somewhere up in Western NY, where the mother's long-term BF stabbed her young daughter to death? I think the girl was a twin? The murder came out of nowhere, and I think he was diagnosed schizophrenic. I took notice of it briefly because I have family in the area. Maybe thats what we're seeing here?
    I know it doesn't matter, but for some reason I hope it's that and not meth.

    I found an online weight lose journal she started back in January of last year. Seems she was doing relatively well till June... Then she started back up January this year.

    I am not say this drug she was taking made her do this horrible act, but it does seem she has been preoccupied with her weight for some time.

    Oh, the horror and confusion that poor girl must have felt during that attack.

    Rest in peace, you are safe now.
    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.

    He blocked the door, put the dog in the garage and "went psycho" stabbing Lauren on the same bed as her twin sister...
    Stabbing her again after her Mom started doing CPR on her... all the day after her Mom said she wouldn't marry him.
    He also researched religion, law enforcement, etc before the crime. He claimed Lauren was the anti-Christ.
    He was found "non guilty by reason of insanity."

    Oh yeah... I forgot, he also "suffers from PTSD due to the incident with Lauren." You know, stabbing her to death?
    To answer your question... absolutely I remember. Lauren is one I will never forget.

    THIS woman I can believe had some serious mental issue like Andrea Yates. Lauren's killer? I'm FAR less than convinced.

    Msfacetious-
    Yes, that was the case. Those FB pics are heartbreaking. Like, I wish I hadn't looked at them.
    You're 100% right about PTSD, my girlfriend deals with this daily, and will most likely never recover, for someone to pile that onto his defense for murdering a minor....I just wish we still had the DP here in NYS.

    This case is giving me major Malecia Hines flashbacks.
    I hope they at least have a picture of Kyla. I still haven't been able to find one of Malecia.

    I just read that thread. I wonder how many neighbors/friends/family are going to come out and say "oh, yeah, I knew she was nuts".

    Danielle claimed to have been having a hard time sleeping since taking the weight loss supplement, which any normal person could understand that this is due to the stimulant properties in it. Like most weight loss and appetite suppressants, you can become jittery and wide-awake as though you're on illegal speed or caffeine pills. Perhaps the young mother is suffering from an undiagnosed mental condition which became inflamed by the use of Hydroxycut. If that is so, she may wind up getting out of this lightly. However, it could be possible that this was simply the brutal murder of a child, and for that Danielle Slaughter deserves a fitting punishment.
    From what I have read from her Facebook, she seemed to be a loving mother, a caring mother. There are pictures of a happy child. Halloween, Christmas, Kyla's birthday in January. DS also seemed to be devote. There are numerous posts about God being her guide.

    "Something" seemed to have happened since January that made this woman become a murderer! I don't claim to know what that change was, but in my opinion, something went very wrong in the last few months. I shudder every time I think of Kyla's last moments. A mother that has always loved her, suddenly becoming the monster that lives under her bed.

    I pray for this baby. I hope she has found peace.
