    MD - Turner Nelson, 3, Baltimore, 3 February 2008

    5 Feb 08

    WBAL TV 11 News has learned that a custody battle may be the reason behind an all-out search for a missing toddler in the Patapsco River over the last three days.

    Sources told 11 News reporter Kate Amara that Turner Nelson, 3, hasn't been seen since Sunday when he was visiting his father.

    According to Baltimore city police, a woman called 911 shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday night from a home on Walbrook Avenue saying that her son had thrown his 3-year-old son, Turner, from the Key Bridge while strapped to his car seat.

    MD - Yet another baby thrown from a bridge :(

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/loc...,7988486.story



    Maryland Transportation Authority Police are preparing murder charges against a West Baltimore man who police believe threw his 3-year-old son off the Key Bridge into the Patapsco River on Sunday.
    After more than two days of searching, police had not recovered the boy's body. But police said phone calls from relatives and statements from witnesses on the bridge Sunday night led them to believe that Turner Jordon Nelson had been thrown into the water.

    I second everything Blondieskatz said.

    I am sick and tired of hearing these stories of people killing and discarding babies.

    There are sooooooooooooooo many options out there for people who find they either don't want their children or can't take care of them.

    What the hell is wrong with people????

    I can't believe this happened again. Unreal! At what point does throwing another human being off a bridge become an option? Scary!

    When he picked the baby up from the mom he had threatened to throw him off the bridge? Did I read that correctly? Honestly, why did he then drink the household cleaner? Throw your dang self off the bridge. Such a sin.

    Reading the comments amounting to "what is going on LATELY"...I just thought I'd throw in that in ancient Athens, there used to be a designated place where parents could leave their unwanted babies. Usually they would simply starve or freeze to death there. So it's not anything particularly new. Which doesn't make it any less horrible and puzzling.

    Here is another article that says later in it that the police found the carseat in the mans car http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/loc...,2120458.story

    so maybe just maybe he didnt do what he stated (prays).

    This is all so sick anymore...the total disreguard for life and especially the life of an innocent child.

    Ive never heard of anything like that before..if there was such a place i would hope that many women would go have themselves a child then ..i know i would go get one if someone just left it.

    In fact anyone who reads this that doesnt want a baby they have - just let me know and ill take it off your hands and actually love and care for it.

    Angel..yes, many people did visit that place, mostly to get free slaves. Some infertile women did obtain babies from there to raise as their own children, but from what I understand, that was rare.

    Regardless of how good a father this monster was before or how much he loved his little boy it sounds like he did carry through with his threat to the mother. Sounds like there were witnesses on the bridge that saw it happen. If he didn't do anything to his little boy why go home and drink cleaner? Like someone else said...why not just throw himself off of the bridge too if he was determined to murder his little boy? Coward.

    My gosh, how many babies have been murdered by someone that was supposed to love them in just the last few months? Way to many. It seems like everyday another monster has ended the life of a little one.

    I think what we need to do when something as horrible as this happens is...set up a camera with the media...take the monster out to the middle of town and blow him/her away or hang him/her and then show the film nationwide so that anyone who is thinking of doing this to their little ones might think twice about it. If not and they hurt a child then they will be on the news next. This nation is to easy on crime...especially crimes against children. Something has to change and the way the laws are right now they aren't working and they won't unless the big wigs change the laws. That is my opinion anyway.
