    Arrest made in death of 5-month-old Forney foster child

    The Kaufman County Sheriff's Office and Texas Rangers arrested Natalie Parker, 37, of Forney Monday after Parker surrendered herself at the sheriff's office in connection with the December death of a 5-month-old in her foster care.

    According to the Kaufman County Sheriff's Office, Parker was charged with Tampering with Witness, Injury to Child (both second degree felonies) and Abandoning or Endangering a Child (a state jail felony).

    On Dec. 29, 2018, Kaufman County deputies received a 911 call from Parker's house in the 2000 block of Chisholm Trail in Forney reporting an unresponsive infant. When the deputies and EMS arrived, they found that the 5-month-old girl was already dead.

    Deputies determined Parker was the baby's foster parent, and was also the foster parent to five other children, one of which is the dead girl's brother. The remaining foster children have been placed in other homes.

    Parker's 19-year-old son Christian Richmond also lived at the house with them. Richmond was arrested on child pornography charges on Jan. 3 and posted a $15,000 bond on Jan. 4. Officials say they don't believe the child pornography charges are related to the baby's death

    Well, the child porn charges may not be related but it sure doesn't make this place look like a good place for foster children.

    Baby's death leads to foster mother's arrest and more scrutiny for Texas care system

    A Dallas-area foster mother has been charged with child endangerment in the death of an infant in her care, a case that raises questions as to whether state officials have done enough to improve the safety of foster children.

    It comes three months after federal judges blasted Texas officials for being “deliberately indifferent” to systemic threats to the safety of foster children.

    The infant, 5-month-old Elizabeth Henson, was found unresponsive and turning purple the morning of Dec. 29. Natalie Parker — a verified foster parent since March 2017 — is charged with abandoning or endangering a child, injury to a child and witness tampering.

    Parker is accused of leaving five foster children in her home in Forney with her 19-year-old son the night before the infant’s death, though she’s the only authorized caregiver, according to arrest warrant affidavits filed by the Texas Rangers. During the investigation, child pornography was found on the son’s cellphone, according to the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office.
