Police: Remains Of Infant Found At Home Of Elyse Mamino

A 23-year-old Illinois woman has been taken into custody after police say she tried to kill her newborn baby in late 2008.

Elyse Mamino, of Belleville, was arrested on Friday on a first degree attempted murder warrant.

According to police, Mamino gave birth to a child in a bathroom at her residence and then allegedly put the child face down in her toilet, while the baby gasped for air and kicked it's little legs repeatedly.

Someone living inside Mamino's home called authorities who quickly sent out an ambulance and managed to save the small girl.

Even worse than the above, investigators say they searched Mamino's residence where they recovered remains of a "decomposed infant" born sometime in 2007.

On Mamino's MySpace profile, which has since been set to private, the 23-year-old writes the following:
"I have been blessed with the love of my life, Edis, for the past 2 years. He is really crazy and insane in the membrane. I am very shy and reserved. Together, we are perfect. J We’re pretty much an old married couple, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. On November 15, 2008 we brought Victoria Rae into the was a HUGE surprise to all of us, but we're very lucky and thankful to have her in our lives. I work 2 jobs and am slowly going back to school. My first job is working with Special Needs (seriously) (Autism to be more specific) kids. I get my ass kicked on a daily basis. However, I still want to do that type of work throughout my life. My body is now multiple colors…red, purple, black, blue & white from the student I work with. When he is happy he is like a big teddy bear and I love him to pieces. When he doesn’t want to work he can drive me crazy. My second job is working at Trade Secret Salon in the Mall. I love all the girls I work with there. J The old ladies that come in could drive somebody crazy, but overall it isn’t bad. I have a crazy obsession with purses. I enjoy playing Nintendo Wii Fit and ‘girlie’ games on the Xbox 360. In my spare time I enjoy reading a good book or scrap booking."
She is currently being held in lieu of $250,000 bond.

Thanks to a tipster for both the MySpace profile and original article.
