    CO - Erin Pendleton, 29, charged in death of newborn in bar restroom, 2004


    The picture of this woman is SCARY!!!

    Police: Woman Dumped Newborn in Bar Restroom, Resumed Drinking at New Bar

    D E N V E R, July 8, 2004 A Denver woman allegedly high on cocaine gave birth in a sports bar restroom, stuffed the infant in a trash can and then continued bar-hopping with her friends, authorities said.

    Erin Pendleton, 29, was being held in the city jail for investigation of first-degree murder. She was arrested last Friday, days after another woman allegedly dumped her newborn in a Denver trash bin.

    Griselle Suarez, 20, is charged with first-degree murder. Police said her baby son was found alive in a trash bin but died June 28 in a hospital.

    Pendleton went with her 6-year-old son and two women to Legends Bar and Grill on June 25, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. The women said Pendleton told them she had consumed a lot of cocaine before going out that evening.

    Said It Was a Kidney Stone

    At the bar, Pendleton called the boy's father on a cell phone and asked him to come get the child, then left the youngster with her friends while she disappeared for 60 to 90 minutes, the affidavit said. Sometime during that period, the boy's father arrived at the bar and then left with his son.

    Eventually one of the friends became concerned and went to look for Pendleton in the bathroom. She told authorities that when she found Pendleton, there was blood on both Pendleton and in a bathroom stall.

    According to the affidavit, Pendleton told her friends she had just passed a kidney stone.

    The women then left the bar and went to the home of one of the friends, where Pendleton borrowed some clothes to replace her bloody outfit. After changing, she left with her friends for another bar, where they continued drinking, the affidavit said.

    Well I say she should be placed in a garbage bag and stuffed in a dumpster!!!!!!!

    This wasn't about DRUGS~this is about someone who is selfish and covered up a murder by telling people she passed a kidney stone! Take her to the dump!

    I don't know about you, but after childbirth, I could barely stand up, let alone go out and have fun. Cocaine must do interesting things to your sense of pain and such.

    I just can't beleive people when they throw their children away. I don't get it.

    So horrible, and doubly horrifying---> not even the only instance in Denver, on the same day!

    Erin Pendleton, 29, was formally charged today with first-degree murder and child abuse. Police said the body of her infant son was found early June 26, just hours after another woman allegedly dumped her newborn in a Denver trash bin.

    Griselle Suarez, 20, is also charged with first-degree murder. Police said her baby son was found alive in a trash bin but died June 28 in a hospital.

    That is an odd picture. Does she have a hair net?

    Her friends are idiots too! Who the heck wouldbuy such an idiotic story that she just passed a kidney stone. And no one else went to the restroom that whole time she was giving birth? Hard to beleieve no one would notice. It is sad too that people don;t take the time out nowadays to help and look out for children.

    You bring a six year old to a bar. Your friends don't look for you for over an hour when ya went to the restroom? The dad of the 6 year old came to pick him up and mama was in the bathroom? Somebody gave ya clean clothes to wear and off you went to continue to drink? Must be some really nice friends and cohorts this chick had. Can't imagine what the poor six year old has succumbed to.

    Couldn't interrupt her night of partying, now could she? So these folks think that you can just throw the kid away in the trash like they do in 3rd world countries when there is not enough food to go around?? This is the height of callousness-give her the max.

    Frankly, for the killing of a newborn, this is a great sentence. It is unbelivable how many of them will get probation or a very short prison term. In fact, this is the best one I've seen out of all of the ones I have done.
