    FL - Tayla Aleman, 13 mos, dies of extreme neglect, Loxahatchee, April 2016 *Arrests*

    Girl, 1, starves to death: State seeks death penalty vs. father
    Aleman’s daughter, Tayla, died from starvation April 1 at the family’s Loxahatchee home, according to the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner. An autopsy revealed Tayla had E. coli, multiple strains of influenza and the start of pneumonia when she died.

    Tayla’s mother, Kristen Meyer-Aleman, also faces first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse charges in
    her death. She told sheriff’s deputies Tayla was fine one minute and stopped breathing the next.
    ER doctor called Fla. toddler's starvation death worst ever

    Every single time I think - this is it - this is as bad as it gets - another case comes along of horrific cruel abuse. I just don't even know what to say anymore. This poor baby girl. There aren't enough tears in the world that can be cried for her.

    All her siblings were needing extra support as well especially with their language development and they never received help. All ten children were abused...so sad and they suggested the mother was pregnant again.....those poor kids!

    Disgusting! Uh, mother claimed she didn't know little Tayla was "that sick," okay, uh huh. At least she can't claim the doctor didn't tell her that Tayla wasn't thriving since she'd never taken her to one. Poor little one had severe diaper rash and a black eye too. And no teeth.

    “One minute (Tayla) was fine,” her mother told a Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputy hours after it happened, “and she suddenly stopped breathing while in (my) arms.”

    That supposedly healthy baby died April 1 with multiple strains of influenza, E. coli, the start of pneumonia and a bacteria known to cause skin infections found in her tiny, frail body, the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner determined. She weighed just over 7 pounds, two fewer than when she was born, according to its report.
    ...
    Kristen Meyer-Aleman was at home with the 10 kids on the afternoon of April 1 when she fed Tayla about 9 ounces of a mixture of Similac formula and milk. Three or four hours later, she tried to feed Tayla another 8 or 9 ounces, she told deputies. But Tayla seemed full and she was afraid of overfeeding her, according to a report.

    Her husband, 39-year-old Alejandro Aleman, called at exactly 6:24, like he did every evening, to ask about dinner. Tayla seemed lethargic, Meyer-Aleman remembered, but she assumed the baby was just sleepy.

    Even a dog they had been caring for in the home - for two weeks! - was found locked in a crate, standing on two inches of compacted feces. Empty food and water bowls, ribs showing.

    Many of the stories from the Palm Beach Post are indexed here:

    Warning! The following is mildly graphic.

    A deputy at the hospital wrote this description of Tayla in his report:

    “The skin appeared raw with sores with obvious breakage of the skin. The child had what appeared to be a dark colored circular bruise around her left eye. While inspecting the mouth of the child, I observed she did not have any developed teeth for her age.”

    The report indicates investigators searched for Tayla’s medical records but couldn’t find any. The report says:

    “These findings indicate that Tayla never saw a doctor from the day she was born March 7, 2015 till the time of her death, April 1st 2016.”

    In their reports, deputies also documented the living conditions inside the home as deplorable, writing it was hard to breathe inside.

    I'm spitting nails right now. The house was filled with flies, gnats and fleas. Feces were smeared on the living room walls. Almost no food in the house.

    Yep...she seemed fine. The baby didn't have the strength to complain. She didn't have the tears to cry. Smh.

    Meyer-Aleman told officials her little girl could roll over, squeeze someone’s finger, smile and make noises. She couldn’t crawl, but Meyer-Aleman said Tayla’s nine older siblings had been slow to develop as well.

    why wasn't she fed? I don't get it. there are social services if you are poor. ffs. so far from what I have read the older ones were taught to distrust any authority as well. something not right going on. why keep getting pregnant if you cant take care of them?

    Alex Aleman doesn't feel safe in jail.
    LOXAHATCHEE
    Inmates at the Palm Beach County Jail threatened to harm the man accused of starving his 13-month-old daughter to death last year, records show.

    Alejandro Aleman’s fellow inmates learned about his case in mid-October when Judge Charles Burton appointed Michael Salnick as Aleman’s attorney.
    ...
    “I don’t feel safe here,” Aleman wrote. “The guards walk by and look at my picture and name and know who I am because my case is a high-profile case that’s been all over the news and newspaper all the time.”
