Pathologist: Dirty Diaper Killed Baby

The following link and MySpace profiles comes from our very own Metro St. Louis Watch Dog:

First the article from STLtoday:
Illinois--"A forensic pathologist testifying in the trial of a Peoria man charged in the death of his 5-month-old son says the child died from an infection brought on by a nearly week-old dirty diaper.

James Sargent is charged with first-degree murder in the February 2008 death of Benjamin Sargent. Pathologist Scott Denton on Tuesday testified on the second day the father's trial.

Denton says that the boy's diaper went unchanged for at least five days before his death.

Prosecutors say 24-year-old James Sargent and the boy's mother, 22-year-old Tracy Hermann, left the child without food or water in a car seat for eight days. Denton says the skin on the Benjamin Sargent's back and bottom had begun to decay, causing the infection that made him lapse into a coma and die."
I'm really beginning to think that some individuals here in the states should be licensed by the US Government to have children.  I cannot understand what kind of society we have become where we treat our children like they are pets.

Anyway, while the two MySpace profiles of Tracy Hermann haven't been accessed in awhile they can be found here and here.

Thanks again to the tipster for the profiles and original article.
