Aspiring Stripper Leaves Toddler In Hot Car While She Auditions
A Tennessee mother has been arrested leaving her 14-month-old daughter in a sweltering car while she danced at a strip club, authorities said.
Kelsey McMurtry, 24, was auditioning at Deja Vu Showgirls in Nashville, Tennessee, when witnesses called the police.
They said the little girl had been inside for 30 minutes, News 2 reported. The temperature inside the car was above 100 degrees and the little girl was wearing a coat according to the arrest warrant.
McMurtry, who works as a bikini and lingerie model and as a ring girl during boxing and MMA events, had left her daughter in the care of a friend, the affidavit states.
Summer Taylor, 19, was meant to be watching the child but was inside watching McMurtry’s audition according to the warrant.
Officers say they found the little girl drenched in sweat inside the car with the windows rolled up, while the temperature outside was 72 degrees. Taylor said she had been checking on her according to authorities but witnesses said they hadn’t seen her outside.
McMurtry has now been charged with felony child neglect and criminal impersonation as she initially gave police a fake name.
She can’t be serious. Aside from the fact that it’s insanely dangerous to leave your baby in a car unattended…why the HELL did she put a coat on the little girl too??
