    A bone scan this week on a 2-month-old abused baby uncovered at least two dozen more broken bones allegedly caused by his baby-sitter, authorities said.

    "The parents said the doctor said everywhere you look there were breaks. The doctor stopped counting at 40," said JoAnne Bruzgul, the attorney for the parents.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    The infant was hospitalized May 11 with 20 rib fractures, a skull fracture, a burn on his tongue and a bruise on his penis. He was released from Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago on May 17.
    It says the parents took him to the doctor because he wouldn't stop crying...did they not notice the visible injuries? That poor baby...
    When the children cry let them know we tried 'Cause when the the children sing then the new world begins

    HUNTLEY — The parents of an infant allegedly injured at a home-based day-care center in Huntley have filed a civil lawsuit against the baby-sitter, who also is facing a criminal charge.

    Joseph and Jolyn Schiola of Huntley filed the suit in McHenry County Circuit Court against Eva Walton, 31, alleging negligence and seeking damages for medical bills and any future care the baby might need, said Francis Patrick Murphy, their lawyer.

    Huntley day-care operator so badly brutalized an infant that after just three days with her the boy had 19 broken ribs, a broken leg, a fractured skull and bleeding inside his skull, a prosecutor said Wednesday....

    Nichole Owens, criminal chief for the McHenry County State's Attorney, told jurors the 34-year-old Walton "viciously and violently" shook the boy and slammed his head against her shin in May 2005, causing the rib, skull and leg fractures. She also burned his tongue with an overheated bottle and bruised his penis in an injury doctors believe was caused by a deliberate pinch...

    If Walton is found guilty, she will face between six and 30 years in prison.

    A 34-year-old Huntley baby sitter began crying after jurors acquitted her of shaking and injuring a two-month-old boy in May 2005...

    Walton repeatedly denied confessing to the crime. Instead, she claimed that U.S. Secret Service Agent Brad Beeler asked her to copy hypothetical scenarios of how the child could have been injured. Those notes were meant to be used in the polygraph examination, but Beeler told Huntley police officers that they were Walton’s written confession, Walton said.

    “She kept on telling us about Beeler’s notes, and they never surfaced in [documents related to the investigation],” defense attorney Mark Gummerson said. “That’s when we subpoenaed the Secret Service, and lo and behold, there it was.”...

    Beeler was the only other person in the interview room when Beeler said Walton verbally confessed and used her purse to demonstrate how she shook the infant.

    After the verdict was read, defense attorneys said they did not have access to documents on Secret Service training, policies and procedures, but suspected they were built around eliciting confessions. The Secret Service’s responsibilities include administering polygraph examinations in child abuse cases.

    “If you think about it, polygraph examinations are not admissible in the state of Illinois, so what’s the purpose of bringing them in for one?” Gummerson said.

    "What I testified to is what happened, and I wanted people to know that," Walton said. "I didn't say those things. I never made any statement (to Beeler).

    "The whole thing didn't feel right," she said of her meeting with Beeler. "But I did what he told me to do. When I was growing up, I was taught to respect authority and, if I did nothing wrong, to cooperate. That's what I did."

    The arrest set in motion a chain of events that included her spending time in the McHenry County jail, the loss of her fledgling day-care business and a five-month legal battle to win normal relations with her then 3-year-old son.

    Before her arrest, Walton said, she was unaware that law enforcement could lie to or mislead a suspect in an effort to get a confession.

    Today, she said only somewhat jokingly, if a police officer approached and asked the time, she would call her lawyers.
