    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?

    Crying Baby Leads Police To Dead Mother In Woods

    http://www.thewmurchannel.com/news/4572526/detail.html

    GRANDVIEW, Mo. -- The cries from a 9-month-old baby girl led police to her mother's body in a wooded area in a Kansas City suburb Saturday morning.

    Kristi Stephens, 30, was found dead with her infant daughter by her side. They had been left in a wooded area in Grandview.


    Stephens' left her sister's home around 1 a.m., but she never made it home. Police found her abandoned Ford Explorer around 8 a.m. Stephens' cell phone and purse were still inside the vehicle. About an hour later, officers found Stephens' body in a wooded area after hearing her baby girl's cries. Her baby was next to her.

    This is heart-wrenching! Thank God, they arrested the SOB returning to the scene. I am relieved the baby's cries were heard. Why would he return to the scene? The police did great on this one! Glad to read the family will take care of the infant. May that man rot in he**!
