The above link is to a page on tru TV about “mothers” who have murdered their own children. Tho there is one missing from this list that I and MANY other feel very strongly, should be present on this list. Her name is Casie L. Basford. And as of tomorrow, Saturday, January the 14th, she will be 5 years over due for having evaded justice for the murder of her 2nd child. In 2007 she killed her 2 year old daughter Jezebel, by wrapping a blanket around her neck and strangling her to death while she slept. She then wrapped her in another blanket, and lay her in the bed beside her & went back to sleep. Four years earlier, she had “lost” another child in infancy to an “abnormal” case of SIDS. Tho the death was ruled as SIDS, there were things that did not match the scenario. Unfortunately, no one looked any deeper. Everyone just felt bad for the “mother”. It wasn’t until it was to late for little Jezebel that everyone who knew Casie started connecting the dots. And even after a skipped polygraph, then a failed one, the prosecutors declined to press charges. The 3rd child that Casie gave birth to, but would not raise, would not be enough to bring her punishment. The first child, a son, had been given up for adoption at birth to a responsible family member, who now is a main advocate in the fight to seek justice for little Jezebel. It is my wish that this post would go viral, spreading to real mothers, seekers of justice, and any normal people who think murdering children is wrong. Please, everyone who sees this, send it on to as many people as you can. These kinds of deed cannot go unpunished. This little girl did nothing to warrant a horrible death, after 2 years of neglect, by the monster who was suppose to be her protector. If you are tired of seeing innocent children slip threw the cracks of an incompetent & apathetic system, stand up, share your voice, do anything you can.
These kids deserve better.
Here is the link to the case, along with a Facebook Post by the leader of the crusade.
