Nguyen Thi Xuan Lan (pictured) was a nine-month-old Vietnamese-Taiwanese girl who suffered horrific abuse from her mother and step-father in the southern province of Dong Thap. She was slapped, burned,  beaten and covered in scorch marks as well as three deep wounds to her left thigh and in the soles of her feet which, doctors said, have been caused by hot objects applied to the skin.

On September 16, 2010, following a tip-off from a neighbor, a health officer in Long Hau commune Lai Vung District found Nhu Y covered in bruises and wounds from head to toe.

The neighbor along with witnesses said they heard the baby crying and the mother screaming and cursing. Prior to that they didn’t know about the abuse, as the girl was kept inside the house at all times.

According to doctors from the Dong Thap General Hospital, Nhu Y had bruises and wounds all over her legs and feet and all across his little body. They concluded that she suffered a 25% permanent injury.

The police would later find out that she was beaten and tortured by her own mother,  Nguyen Thi Xuan Lan, and 34-year-old stepfather, Le Thanh Tam. The couple not only took turns beating Nhu Y, but her step-father even video taped the gruesome footage.

When Nhu Y was being hospitalized, the mother was permitted to enter the hospital to care for her. However, Lan was not interested, so she was separated from the child. It took police no time at all to realize who was guilty.

The mother and step-father were brought in for questioning and it didn’t take long to get the both of them to confess.  They told police they beat the baby girl because she often cried and they believed she was a source of bad luck for the family. They believed that hitting her would drive misfortune away.

The child’s step-father, Tam, was the first to claim she was possessed by demons and told Xuan Lan that she (the baby) had to be ‘treated’ by him. Xuan Lan agreed and on August 14, 2010, Tam used his chin to press hard into Y’s two cheeks while his hands squeezed tight onto his step daughter’s mouth and face. This particular incident was being taped.

Both the mother and her husband (Nguyen’s step-father) were arrested. Area police have prosecuted her for abusing her baby.

According to reports, the neighbor who alerted police, was the same neighbor who took custody of the child while her mother was being sentenced. The aunt took custody shortly after.

Teenage GIRL Accused Of Sodomizing Toddler

__________

Originally Publish Aug 2nd, 2012 → An 18-year-old Kansas woman faces a penalty of 25 years to life in prison for allegedly molesting a 3-year-old boy. Ashleigh Geist of Olathe is charged with aggravated criminal sodomy for a crime that police say took place on July 9. The victim is reportedly not a relative of Geist’s.

Geist was arrested Tuesday, and was actively engaging in social media until police arrived to take her to to Johnson County Jail. She had very active Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram accounts, where she displayed a marked interest in crafts, cooking, family and religion. On the day of her arrest, she tweeted about making something for the family mantle. She finished high school this May, and excitedly tweeted about graduation and her high ACT score. Now, Geist is being held on $250000.00 bond.

Because of the alleged victim’s age, prosecutors are seeking a life sentence. If given the maximum penalty, Geist would be eligible for parole after 25 years. Police and the alleged victim’s family have withheld details of the crime and the investigation leading up to Geist’s arrest.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe remarked that charges of sodomy are usually seen in cases involving male defendants. ”It’s unusual for us to see a female defendant in these types of cases,” said Howe. “We have had other cases where we’ve had female defendants committing these types of crimes but it is unusual.” According to Kansas state laws, sodomy is defined as “oral contact or oral penetration of the female genitalia or oral contact of the male genitalia; anal penetration, however slight, of a male or female by any body part or object; or oral or anal copulation or sexual intercourse between a person and an animal.”

LATEST UPDATE – (NY)

Isabella Tennant, 5, was allegedly murdered by a 16-year-old family friend,  John Freeman, in her grandmothers home.

An upstate teen killed a 5-year-old girl he was babysitting “with his bare  hands” and, with the help of a friend, bagged her body and dumped it in an  alleyway garbage can, police said. Little Isabella Tennant’s slain body was found in at the bottom of a trash  can near downtown Niagara Falls at around 9 a.m. on Monday, a few hours after  her family reported her missing, authorities said.

“It’s a terrible crime. It tears at your heart,” Niagara Falls Police Capt.  William M. Thomson told reporters on Monday. “I have grandchildren the same age as this victim, and it is horrible.”

The suspect, John  Freeman, 16, was described as a “trusted” family friend who was asked to  look after the girl when her great-grandmother went to bed on Sunday night,  authorities said.

“It is very disturbing,” Thomson said, according to the Buffalo News. “We  don’t have any motive for this.”

Freeman and a pal, Tyler Best, 18, of Buffalo, were charged in the girl’s  death and made their first court appearance on Tuesday morning.

Isabella, who lived in Cheektowaga, was staying overnight with her  great-grandmother, Sharon Lascelle, while her mom worked a shift at a Niagara  Falls sports bar, the Buffalo News reported. Lascaelle went to bed at around 11:00 p.m., and asked Freeman to come over  and look after the tot, authorities said. Freeman and the family were “close,” authorities said, and he had looked  after the girl alone before. The family reported Isabella missing at around 6:30 a.m. after her mom came  home and couldn’t find her, authorities said.

Freeman was questioned, but told police he last saw the girl at around  midnight, the Buffalo News reported.

Cops quickly got a break in the case when Best, who was crashing with  Freeman, showed up at police headquarters at around 9 a.m. and admitted to  helping dump the little girl’s body. Best led police to a trash can in an alley between Third and Fourth streets,  just blocks from the Lascelle’s home, the newspaper said. The girl was fully clothed, and there were so signs the teen used any  weapons to kill her, police said. “At this time we believe Freeman killed Isabella with his bare hands …and  that Best was only involved after she was deceased and assisted with moving her  remains,” police said in a statement, which was posted on the local NBC News station.

Hundreds Attended Candel-light-Vigil To Honor The Murdered Girl

An autopsy was planned for Tuesday morning.

Freeman was charged with second-degree murder, while Best was charged with  tampering with evidence. Both pleaded not guilty. They were due back in court on Sept. 7.

Hundreds of stunned community members gathered at Sal Maglie Stadium, a  minor league ballpark, on Monday night for a candlelight vigil.

“There are no words I could say to take away (Isabella’s mother’s) pain… I  support her and I love her,” family friend Christina Conte told local NBC.
