    I agree with you. And reading about the confession, that he wasn't even allowed to speak to his wife before they confined him and told him his infant daughter was dead, kept him isolated and locked up for hours and hours, and threatened to jail both he and his wife and place their other infant daughter in the foster system...I don't find the confession to be that credible. Imagine how distraught and out of it you would be!

    I noticed how close the interviewer got to him, intimidating. I'm all for LE, but maybe this was a rush to judgment.

    Has his wife given permission for the CME at Knox County Forensic Center to report on the findings of the autopsy that she (wife) had done? If not, I hope she will.

    He may be married, become a father, is in the army, but he is still only 22 years old .. unfinished. He must have been in a horrible state of confusion and grief (if innocent) after learning of his baby's death, and hearing the accusations thrown at him ?over and over and over again? to the point that he would say anything just to get them to STOP! It's been said that this is ploy of LE at times.

    If he did what he is accused of , so be it. But pros needs to show some real obvious evidence ~ which we will just have to wait for.

    I'm curious to know what kind of helmet the baby was wearing.

    Katy, the "how" of it was discussed in one or maybe both of the report at Christopher's blog site. The baby was still in the crib when she was found by her mother.

    This is probably not very helpful, but I'm really worn down by all the stuff that's happened, the horrible stuff, since the Watts murders, it has just gone from bad to worse. (My excuse for not going to look for the info or putting a link, it's in this thread. anyway).

    Can someone clarify the spelling of this baby's first name? In the CC website it's spelled Adeline. In msm it's spelled Adaline. Thanks!

    The family has released portions of the autopsy report, and certain other investigative reports. I would suggest reading them. If these reports are true (and it sure looks like they are), then his confession, and the accusations against him, aren't supported by the physical evidence.

    After all my outrage earlier, I am actually leaning towards believing him.

    So...

    Portions of the autopsy report state that no signs of obvious sexual assault were found.
    Confession Questioned In Case Of Baby Death

    According to an arrest warrant, she had injuries consistent with being raped.

    Police: Army medic admits to raping, killing infant daughter; sister removed from home

    Ok, going to get a little graphic here... Rape means penetration. If there was no penetration, the charge would be some variation of sexual assault and/or molestation. If a 9 month old infant was penetrated, even digitally, there should have been blood and obvious injury. If the penetration was... um. .. more than digitally, there would have been massive injuries. When children that young are raped, they have to undergo multiple surgeries to repair and reconstruct.

    This isn't a case where there should be a question as to what injuries the child sustained.

    I hope he has an excellent attorney.
