14-Year Old Girl Admits To Choking New Born And Putting Him In Shoebox
A Teenage girl in Florida who hid her pregnancy from her family has confessed to choking the newborn to death following his birth and then hiding his body in a shoebox.
Polk County Sheriff’s detectives have charged a 14-year-old girl with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse for allegedly choking her newborn baby to death.
The girl, who was not named by authorities, was arrested Thursday night.
Detectives say the girl hid her pregnancy from her family. She gave birth to a boy in the bathroom of her home on Sept. 19, then told detectives that she choked the baby and put him in a shoebox. The girl’s mother found the baby in the box, hidden in some laundry.
She is being held at the Polk County Juvenile Detention Facility. It’s unclear whether she’s retained an attorney.
How people can continue to do such horrible and sad things to defenseless babies is something that we will never understand.
