Mom Throws Six-Month-Old Baby Out Window
Jesus is real and so is mental illness.
A 27-year-old woman lost her marbles and did the unthinkable when she allegedly threw her baby girl from a sixth-floor apartment window. Tenisha Fearon claimed the devil had gotten a hold of her following her arrest for the horrific incident.
Per The Gothamist:
A 6-month-old infant died yesterday after her emotionally disturbed mother allegedly threw her out of the window of their apartment in the Bronx. Louella Hatch, godmother of suspect Tenisha Fearon, told the News that Fearon was ranting to cops that “the devil is in her,” as she was being taken away.
Fearon, 27, was arrested after she allegedly dangled and then dropped Junilah Lawrence out of the window of their sixth-floor apartment on Tiebout Avenue, near 181st Street, around 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Neighbor Lizette Rodriguez told the Times that Fearon, who was naked at the time, screamed, “Hallelujah, praise God, we’re all going to die,” before dropping the girl. “She was arguing with herself,” she added.
Next-door neighbor Gregorio Lopez added that after throwing the baby out the window, Fearon lay on the floor of her apartment surrounded by her other three children, aged 10, 8 and 4. They were all naked and lying on their backs as well. “I actually thought that they weren’t alive when I saw them lying on the floor naked,” Lopez said. But then Fearson “jumped up and started hitting the window,” he said. “That’s when I started calling for more help because I thought she might throw more [kids] out.”
What’s even more bizarre is that Fearon was licensed to run a daycare until her license expired in April and her accreddition elapsed. Luckily, authorities don’t believe Fearon had any children in her care since April.
