Girl accused of burying her newborn baby in woods

  • Follow News

MABLETON, Ga. — Police outside Atlanta say a girl is facing a murder charge after investigators say they found a newborn child buried in woods behind an apartment complex.

Cobb County police Officer Mike Bowman said the baby was discovered Wednesday in a wooded area behind a unit of the Sierra Forest Apartments in Mableton.

Bowman said the girl, whom police determined is the infant’s mother, has been charged with felony murder, first-degree child cruelty and concealing a death.

Bowman told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the mother is 13 years old. Her name wasn’t released.

An autopsy was scheduled to be done by the Cobb County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine how the newborn died.

Make sure to find the father as well

And charge him with rape.

Charges Against the Father Could Be Much Worse

Rape might not be the only charge made against the father of the child. Prayers for the child. He/She did not even get a chance.

If she had acted a few months earlier

If she had just gotten a note from her doctor, she would have been allowed to legally kill her baby a few months earlier. Such is the reality in the death culture of the abortion world.

with the left and democrats way of obamacare. They consider the murder of a child to be inconsequential. Certain communities believe that girls under the age of consent are here to have babies to collect their fair share of welfare. The punk "fathers" are allowed to rape and pillage young girls because as a community, it's their custom.

Child facing murder charges
Unpublished

Yes,the Doctors in the "Abortion" business sure have a strong union. You kill a child and don't pay them, you go to jail. The folks who brought these charges need to be run out of town on a rail, tared and feathered.

What's The Big Deal?

If she had killed it a couple months earlier people would be cheering.

The baby is dead at the hands of its mother one way or the other.
