    ....brain injuries, a healing but broken collar bone, a broken rib, broken leg bones and other injuries.

    "Mr. Croxford basically talked about having difficulties in his life, difficulties in his relationship, difficulties in finding employment and those led him to being extremely frustrated and things going on in his life that he took out on his daughter," Ebert said

    This is his facebook, I did some looking around and found a better picture to compare to the mugshot.

    I don't understand... how do you go from a new husband 18 months ago, then a proud father in September... to this? :please:
    Hopefully Baby Girl E can pull through this and be okay.

    Ok what am I missing here? Where is mom and wife? How can an INFANT be abused for at least a month and the mother not be aware? A mom is aware of every little inch of their newborn baby's body. AND at that age they are typically going to the doctor every month for their shots and check ups.

    Thanks for the Facebook links. I looked at the mom's too and they both appear to be loving and happy parents (or at least compared to the low-life, druggie pictures you usually see for the offender).

    I pray this little baby makes it and heals completely. She's a little angel in those pictures.

    Since they said that the father was out of work, I wondered if maybe Mom was working?

    Sure, that's plausible, but the articles linked say there is evidence of abuse going on for the past month!!!!!

    Oh I know that. I wonder if the Mom had PPD... or had some sort of other issue going on.
    Technically the vaccine schedule is 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 2 months and 4 months if I remember correctly.
    So 3-4 months she may not have seen a doctor.

    HOWEVER, Mom said on New Year's Day that Baby E was sick and they were taking her to the doctor. So.... I don't know.

    Poor little infant - ideally she should have had two loving parents. Clearly the father was not loving - as for the mother, she must have known that her baby had injuries - how can a mother ignore and "not see, not hear" her baby was suffering.
    IMHO

    Um, I hate to tell him, but this father's life is about to get much much more difficult. He thinks he had "difficulties" before?

    If he was out of work why was he so busy playing games according to his FB page? This reminds me of that mother in Fl that's son distracted her during her game time.
