Warning: Twisted and very sad report coming up.
Here we go.
So, coming out of the land of 10,000 lakes there has been a very odd, strange, and downright twisted case about a Minnesota mom reacting in a very disturbing way after giving birth. A Minneapolis woman by the name of Kristin Bennett gave birth to a baby boy in her bathroom and of course by herself apparently. It wasn’t a miscarriage nor cold-blooded murder, but rather a seemingly inadvertent freak accident of some kind. Feeling sick she rushed to the bathroom and ultimately gave birth to the child in the toilet while never knowing she was pregnant to begin with (how can you not know you’re pregnant?). Here are some more specifics:
Court documents say Winona police first heard of the boy’s death on April 10, when they responded to the Women’s Health Clinic on a call of a dead baby brought by its mother. When police met with the clinic’s staff, they told authorities Kristin Bennett came with her mother and the baby to the clinic.
Staff said Bennett told her mother she delivered the baby herself into her apartment’s toilet bowl. She reportedly said she heard the baby cry once and then stop. She rubbed the boy’s back, trying to get him to breathe. It was not successful.
Here’s where things get worse:
After she realized the baby was dead, Bennett wrapped him in a sweatshirt, put him in a plastic container and kept the boy in her room.
Bennett brought the boy to her mother’s home on April 9, the day before they went to the clinic. It is not clear how long the boy’s body stayed in his mother’s room.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office conducted an autopsy on the boy. A cause of death has not yet been determined.
Sometimes I really can’t fathom the things I find.
