FL - Woman Allegedly Beat Mother With Plumbing Wrench
There could be more to this story. Attacker involved in another incident, but the day care worker was blamed several years ago. See below:
MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. -- Channel 9 uncovered disturbing new details in the case of an advocate for child abuse victims charged with trying to kill her mother. Police said Brenda Thimlar beat her mother with a metal plumbing tool.
Detectives said Monday, not only was it cold, calculated and carefully planned out, they also revealed how the 59-year-old woman survived the attack.
"I need an ambulance," Sharon Adams told the 9-1-1 dispatcher.
"Are you having a hard time breathing, ma'am?" the dispatcher asked.
"Yes, I've been beat up," Adams said. http://www.wftv.com/news/9603911/detail.html
Thimlar was first thrust into the spotlight back in 1998 when Ann Barber, a daycare worker at a Cocoa church, was accused of injuring Thimlar's son by severely shaking him. Barber was convicted even though defense attorneys argued the abuse occurred before the child was in her care.
Detectives said they were looking over that case.
"We did look at that question again. We are re-examining

anyone who beats their mother with a wrench has some "anger management" issues. Shall we take bets on whether the child care worker was telling the truth. Sure says resonable doubt to me!

There is a lot more to this story. It isn't very simple:
Frankly, it's starting to look like cold-blooded psychopathic calculation on Brenda Thimlar's part from way on back.
And perhaps that a terrible injustice was done by the State of Florida, and Thimlar, to a woman named Ann Elliott Barber.
