    Seeing pics of this precious baby just brings tears to my eyes. He was born premature and had to wear a cranial molding helmet. I can't even express the anger I feel at reading how the investigators say he died!

    Doctors diagnosed little Lincoln with a "skull fracture". The attending physician "believed the injuries were consistent with possible abuse".

    I read the news 9 article and mother stated infant took a "small tumble." Unbelievable she'd try to cover up sick crime.

    The news articles talk about a couple recent falls. I wonder who was taking care of Lincoln during those times?

    Oh this case is so heartbreaking! It's been all over the news here. The dentist had a pretty large and successful practice here in Tulsa. I think about this poor mother every day and look at little Lincoln's pictures on her FB every day too. I've heard nothing about Dr. Franklin's wife. She has been laying very low I guess. My heart goes out to her as well.

    Early in Aug. Franklin's attorney said he planned to file a motion for bond reduction

    Luckily, bond was denied!
    http://www.newson6.com/story/327789...or-tulsa-dentist-accused-of-killing-okc-child
    Looks like the State Board of Dentistry agreed! They also said they have been investigating him since Feb. for fraud and violations against the dental act. (details at link)

    Sounds like this monster's life was a mess. RIP little Lincoln, you did not deserve this!

    I agree, the mother is certainly not to blame! I wonder if Lincoln was under this man's care when he had the early injuries? If so, I would question if the injuries really came from falls.

    Does he really think he would have work to go back to? I doubt many people are going to want to have their teeth worked on by someone who murdered a sweet, vulnerable, baby.

    This piece of trash dentist was also charged last week with fraud, charging $80,000 on a patient's credit card. His office has been closed for a couple of weeks now.

    wvcountrygirl, from what I've read, Lincoln's mother had an in-home babysitter during the day when she was at work. He was not quite ready to go to daycare due to still being a little fragile because of being such a preemie. I don't think his previous little falls caused anything near what this piece of trash did to him. I'm just baffled by this whole thing. Apparently he was insanely jealous of Lincoln's bio father, was living a double life between his family in Tulsa and his girlfriend and her children in Oklahoma City, and was drowning in debt, ripping off his patients, losing his business and who knows what else.

    Cripes. I just read this whole thread. That poor sweet baby, he and his mom are in my prayers.

    Also, I know we all always worry about the safety of the innocent people who the perpetrators of these crimes come into contact with, but I sincerely hope there is someone doing some serious looking in this dude's family and background. He sounds like an absolute sociopath who was lying to literally everyone about literally everything.

    As I work on my laptop, Dr. Phil is on, and precious baby Lincoln's story is airing :(. Prayers, and warmest hope for Lincoln's mom. May justice be aptly served for the sorry excuse for a sub-human, Bert Franklin.

    Police confirm they have arrested 35-year-old Bert Franklin. Tulsa police said he is dating Lincoln's mother. And News 9 has also learned, Franklin is married and has four children of his own.

    Doesn't anybody play it straight anymore?!


    That poor baby boy. RIP


    On another note, I wonder exactly how many Jaguars Franklin owned. My childhood dentist Dr. L. owned five Jaguars one for every day of the work week. :mad:
