    "Both Larsen and Parker were still on probation after being convicted of injury to a different child, a 10-year-old girl in October 2009."

    So, wasn't anyone from LE checking on them? Shouldn't those people have noticed the animal and child abuse?

    How were they not red-flagged with the hospital for a mandatory CPS referral? They do that all the time up here, and I guarantee they would have done it in a case where the couple was previously convicted of a crime against a child, and had 5 other kids, total, living in out of home placement, let along four of them in adoptive placement, which indicates the impending or already accomplished termination of parental rights.

    How does this even happen after they had so many strikes against them already?

    How do people like this have a baby in their custody? :banghead:

    And then there are people like me (who can't have bio children) and we have to prove ourselves to be a fit parent, back ground checks, blah blah blah and approx $30,000...to become a parent.

    These abuse/neglect/murder cases make me sick.


    NMK - I completely agree with you! I believe CPS failed this baby. Why wasn't it red-flagged? When we did foster care in FL, there was a baby born that we were going to have placed with us (but he ended up in a medical foster home) that was automatically removed from the mothers care because her other 3 children had already had their rights terminated. He was removed upon birth/discharge from the hospital.

    ITA. I went through years of infertility treatments and miscarriages before we were finally blessed with our DD. If anything, my parenting mistakes have been that I tend to smother instead of mother.

    But after reading stories like this, I just go squeeze her some more even if she groans "Mo-oooooom! Quit!"

    There seems to be such injustice in how fertile child abusers often are and how some families with nothing but love and kindness to give are challenged in becoming parents. :(

    Police believe mother Mabel Jo Larsen, 32, and the baby's father, Aaron Michael Parker, 34, kept the child a secret after Child Protective Services took away five of their other children.

    Both parents plead guilty to child injury last year and officials found evidence of narcotics at the residence.

    Both are on probation for previous child abuse and neglect cases, investigators said.

    Three years ago, Child Protective Services removed five other children from the home.

    A 10-year-old was found to have suffered emotional and physical abuse.

    'She was skin and bones. She was being held to a weigh bench with zip ties,' said neighbor Shanna Hopkins to KHOU.

    CPS was shocked to hear that another child was in their care.

    How horrible! My heart breaks for these children and for those who can't have children and want them so much.

    All children need to be brought up in a home with love and caring. And we wonder why there are so many criminals. (not giving all a pass) but I can't see a happy outcome for children brought up in such horrible conditions.

    Children need to be loved and nurtured. Boundries yes, but safe ones, without abuse.

    Sorry, but it just gets to be too much sometimes. JMO

    Once cps has to step in and remove someone children like was done here, the mother AND father should be surgically sterilized. They've proven they don't know how to take care of a child, and in this case they had more than one chance.

    Early childhood neglect can seriously screw kids up.

    Whoa what a messed up couple these two are. Horrific!

    I'm glad they got the child out before it was too late. The animals too. Hope they all find better, loving homes. All living beings deserve that.

    But what if they get out of jail? Will they get more kids, and animals, to play the cruel game of neglect?

    Sometimes i wish people like that would just overdose ... do everyone a favor.
