An 8-month-old baby in Georgia starting making very loud “gurgling noises,” so the mother’s boyfriend dialed 911 immediately in a serious panic. Tragically, the baby passed away but what was exposed is her mom and her boyfriend’s dark horrific secret, and when you learn what it is it will truly leave you cringing at the thought.
Once 8-month-old Kamonie Love Whitehead starting making loud “gurgling noises,” the mother, Shavone Whitehead, along with her boyfriend, Edward F. Wilson, started to panic so they dialed 911. fearful and scared. Sadly, when Wilson went to see how the small baby was doing, he found her unresponsive.
Whitehead started to give CPR to her baby as emergency personnel arrived and rushed the baby to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, where unfortunately, she was pronounced dead. However, while she was there, doctors exposed Whitehead and Wilson’s sick secret.
Kamonie had injuries “to her legs, chin, and arms as well as fractured ribs, and potential skull fractures,” according to Daily Mail. Come to find out, the baby had been making gurgling noises because her sick mother and boyfriend had been beating her with a belt – which ultimately took her young life.
Although Whitehead initially denied the allegations, she eventually admitted to beating the child on the body as punishment. Anyone who has seen an 8-month-old child knows that a baby that age has no way of comprehending whether what they do is right or wrong, much less understand “punishment” of any kind — especially being beaten with a belt until they succumb to their fatal injuries.
“I want her to be able to do things like any other parent would,” Kamonie’s grieving father, Damarrio McCoy, said. “You wanna see your kid grow. I have all my wants, but I don’t know God’s will. I don’t know God’s will.”
He has since asked people to pray for him during this difficult time and hopes he sees justice for his baby girl. It seems some justice will be served, as Whitehead and Wilson have since been “arrested on charges of aggravated battery and cruelty to children,” according to KTLA. Depending on the results of the autopsy, their charges could be upgraded.
