    LA - Jailand Adams, 3 mos, dies in dryer, mom charged, 5 Dec 2005

    BOGALUSA, La. (AP) — A mother was booked on a charge of first-degree murder for allegedly placing her 3-month-old son in a clothes dryer and turning it on.

    The infant had third-degree burns over 50 percent of his body and suffered blunt force trauma to the head, the St. Tammany Parish coroner said.

    Police Sgt. Darryl Darden said Lakeisha Adams, 18, called police to her home on Monday to report that someone had killed her child. When officers arrived, they found Jailand Adams on a sofa. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Darden said Adams admitted during questioning to putting the infant in the dryer and turning it on, but did not say why.

    OMG what a horrible callous thing to do, poor sweet baby.

    She needs to go in a industrial size dryer for a few hours

    Can you just imagine the painfulness of that for the poor baby? Oh my God, I can't even fathom the thought. What a cruel, evil person. That poor baby. No child deserves that, not even for a milisecond. What goes through a person's mind to even think such a thing? God!!

    and here again, we get into that "where does stupidity or evil end and mental illness begin" debate.

    she is either mentally retarded, psychotic, or this was a 'post-birth abortion" by someone who knew she couldn't handle having a child.

    or, maybe a combination of all of these......?

    If she had this child in a hospital ( as opposed to a home birth ) wouldn't the nurses be able to tell she had a screw ( or 20) loose???

    I just think when these girls are single.....special attention should be paid to making sure they are stable.

    This situation is horrible beyond belief.

    What kind of sicko does something so horrific?!!!!! I bet her defense will be post-partum depression and the stress of having 2 kids so little at such a young age. Lethal injection is too good for the person who did this!! I agree with you, Casshew....they need to find a dryer to put her in so she can feel what it is like!!! In my opinion, if more punishments fit the crime, we wouldn't have a lot of the bad stuff going on today that happens!!

    This is so sickening!! It just makes me want to cry buckets of tears for these poor babies killed by such horrendous ways. I hope her 1 year old never goes back to her.

    I'm just sitting here in stunned silence and seething with anger. I know how hot my stuff gets in the dryer. The thought of my entire body being in there is bad enough, but to be TUMBLED around crashing every part of one's body is beyond comprehension. This is TORTURE in every sense of the word. This woman is pure evil. There are no two ways about it.

    When I think of all the people who desperately want a child and would care for and love a child -- then there are girls who get pregnant, don't want the kid, and kill the baby. Leave the baby outside to die of exposure, bury the baby alive, throw the baby in the trash, flush the baby down the toilet, and now this. What is wrong with people?

    I am absolutely disgusted by this. I don't know what to say. How does a person even think of something so cruel? When I read things like this it makes me want to hurt the monster that did it.

    God Bless this baby's soul.
