When an 8-month-old baby in Georgia started making loud “gurgling noises,” her mother’s boyfriend rushed to call 911 in a panic.
Sadly, the baby died, but not before accidentally revealing her mother and boyfriend’s sick secret, and what it was will make you cringe at the thought.
When 8-month-old Kamonie Love Whitehead started making loud “gurgling noises,” her mother, Shavone Whitehead, and boyfriend, Edward F. Wilson, panicked and immediately called 911. Unfortunately, when Wilson went to check on the baby, he found her unresponsive.
Whitehead began resuscitating her child until paramedics arrived and took the baby to Atlanta Children’s Health Department, where she was pronounced dead. But while she was there, doctors uncovered Whitehead and Wilson’s sick secret.
Kamonie had injuries “to her legs, buttocks, chin and arms, as well as broken ribs, bleeding and possible fractured skulls,” according to the Daily Mail. To find out the baby had been making gurgling noises because her ailing mother and boyfriend had hit her with a belt – which ended up killing her.
Although Whitehead initially denied the allegations, she eventually admitted to hitting the child on the legs and buttocks as punishment. Anyone who’s seen an 8-month-old knows that a baby that age has no way of understanding if what they’re doing is right or wrong, let alone understand “punishment” of any kind – especially with a belt being beaten until it succumbs to her fatal injuries.
“I want her to be able to do things that any other parent would do,” said Kamonie’s grieving father, Damarrio McCoy. “You want to see your child grow up. I have all my desires, but I don’t know God’s will. I don’t know God’s will.”
He has since asked people to pray for him during this difficult time and hopes he sees justice for his little girl. It seems some justice is about to be served, as Whitehead and Wilson have since been “arrested on charges of aggravated assault and cruelty to children,” according to the KTLA. Depending on the results of the autopsy, her charges could be increased.
Though Whitehead and Wilson may never get what they deserve for murdering an innocent baby, knowing they’re going to prison for their crime provides some justice. There is no reason for anyone to harm a child, much less beat them to death with a belt. The only comfort anyone can have is knowing that a child has gone to heaven and is now safe in the arms of God.
