child o.d.'s/attention home health staff

  1. News From nbc10.com:

    Authorities in Philadelphia said an 8-year-old Kalilah Williams died of an overdose of the painkiller oxycodone.
    Her 5-year-old sister is hospitalized in stable condition with the same drug in her system.
    Police found similar pills in a lunchbox at the girls' West Philadelphia home, and are investigating how the children obtained the narcotics.
    Kalilah, a second grader, was put on life support when she was admitted to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia on Tuesday morning. She was pronounced dead at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday.
    Her sister, Janaya Nichols, started getting sick at the hospital and was soon admitted.
    Police questioned the girls' mother, 34-year-old Stephanie Pendleton, a home health-care provider, and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Ray Nichols, who is Janaya's father. No charges have been filed.
    Police say a drug-sniffing dog found small amounts of various painkillers, including oxycodone, in a search of the home Tuesday night.
    OxyContin is a long-lasting version of oxycodone.
    At first, the parents had suggested that the narcotics in the girls' blood came from some candy they ate. Police said they went to the grocery store where the candy was bought and found it was untainted.
    A source close to the investigation told NBC 10 that investigators found an empty drug capsule next to the candy in a lunchbox in the family's home. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>> I will keep my eye on this story and update when I can........ poor little girl....

    Heartbreaking that there is such selfishness and stupidity in the world.

    There was another story in the paper this morning about a mom who killed her children with a rock "a sobbing Deanna Laney described how she smashed her sons' skulls with rocks". 8 year old Joshua and 6 year old Luke are now dead and Aaron, her then 14 month son was seriously injured. She blames it on getting a sign from God that he wanted her to kill them.

    I'm pretty darn sure God loves being blamed for stuff like this . And pretty darn sure it makes him mad.

    Here is the sad thing . . . we could swap horror stories all day and not come to the end of them.

    Too horrible to contemplate.

    Ya gotta admit though you folks who are anti-death penalty. Someone who rapes and strangles a 6 year old AND IS FOUND GUILTY WITHOUT A DOUBT seems the perfect candidate.
