    mom charged with child abuse​


    Megan McKeon, 24, allegedly left Austin Davis in their Steamboat Springs campground cabin overnight with food, juice and a movie playing, while she spent the night with her boyfriend.
    It was around the 20th time she'd abandoned the youngster in such conditions.

    The mother's name is Megan McKeon, and she had left her young boy at their cabin in Steamboat Springs, Colorado on March 26th to go to work at a supermarket. However she didn't return until the next morning, and she found her son lying on his back, with his eyes open, with no signs of life.

    Later on it was revealed that the home the mother and son were living in was absolutely filthy, with human waste lying around, and food all over the ground.

    giagreen, they don't exactly know how he died. They are awaiting toxicology reports.

    She left him overnight, by himself and when she came home the next morning he was lying on his back, with his eyes open, dead.

    If you complete the survey on the newspaper's website you can read the full article. Apparently she left the child alone for 4 days!

    And this:
    Don't know if it is relevant, but Austin's father is a registered sex offender. Here is an article about him: http://www.steamboattoday.com/news/2013/sep/06/steamboat-springs-man-must-register-sex-offender/

    Here is the link to the newspaper's facebook page. The story was published April 15. https://www.facebook.com/steamboattoday

    I wouldn't leave my pets alone for 24 hours unattended, never mind FOUR DAYS!!! What was this mother thinking over the course of those FOUR DAYS while her helpless toddler was alone in a campground cabin? I can't even imagine the terror and confusion this poor little guy suffered :(

    It now is thought that Austin might have been left alone for about 92 hours in a cabin at Steamboat Campground. That is based on an interview police did with McKeon&#8217;s boyfriend, Brian Jordan, who McKeon had been staying with in Dream Island Plaza.

    no words. I thought it was heinous when I started the thread based on the 24 hour info. But four days???? That poor baby. Scared, alone, no one there to care for him. Just left to his own devices, to die, alone, while mommy was busy lining up her next new relationship. Jesus Wept.

    She didn't even check on him when she came home before a phone call reminded her?

    yes, he apparently lay there face down even after she was home til his father called from jail asking about his wellbeing.

    It was only THEN she thought to turn him over and was shocked to find him dead

    This certainly makes me wonder if Austin wasn't dead before she left.

    (RSBM)

    Three counts of misdemeanor child abuse were dropped, according to the NYDN:

    (Snip)

    But those charges, which would have only carried a maximum sentence of 42 months if convicted, were then sensationally dropped.

    In a dramatic twist, the District Attorney said he now intended to charge her with the more serious crime of child abuse resulting in death. Her bond was set at $250,000.

    -------

    I hope they put her under the jail.

    Good. Thank god they are charging her with more. I wish it was murder. To me its murder to leave a 3 year old home alone for days. What did she think was gonna happen!?!?!?!? I'd love slap this woman.
