Pittsburgh: In a bizarre incident a 21-year-old woman jailed for killing her 17-month-old son. The women has sent a video of the boy’s body to his father along with a “laughing” emoji, said the cops.
Christian Clark of McKeesport, text-messaged by saying.”Ya kids ain’t safe here I don’t want them here” and “I’m killing them” — followed by the emoji.
The mother said in the video that. “Ahh, look, Angel is still alive and sweating your son on the other hand is not even breathing,” she added. “I wish I could keep the camera still.”
Clark was jailed without bond after being arraigned on charges of criminal homicide in the death of a toddler Andre Price III and attempted homicide of his 2-year-old sister, Angel. Clark doesn’t have an attorney listed in online court records.
She started sending increasingly violent text messages to the boy’s father, Andrew Price on Tuesday. She was upset at having to clean up toilet water the children spilled and moreover,Price had left for work earlier in the day and Clark believed he planned to have sex with another woman.
Clark has sent dozens of texts to Price. “Answer me or im going to jail for child endangerment”. She messaged at 10:01 pm that said, “I’m killing them” — followed by a laughing emoji with tears coming from its eyes, police said.
At 10:14 pm., Clark sent the first video, showing the children lying on a bed facing down.
With in five minutes another video showed Clark grabbing Angel’s head, prompting the girl to cry. When Clark grabbed the boy’s head, he didn’t respond, police said.
Clark said in the video.“First of all she is clearly fine, because watch, see she is not dead. Him on the other hand, he doesn’t budge. So you might want to call the ambulance,” then she texted, “All cus you wanted to go (have sex with) her & come here when you like.”
“Im sure it’ll hurt me one im sitting in jail & you got all the evidence you need to I can’t even say he suffocated in his sleep or say idk what happened,” Clark texted.
Price replied only six times in the texts at one point promising to take a bus home but at other times ignoring Clark’s threats to harm his children.
He texted at 11:10 p.m. “Try to wake him up I said hold him.”
“Its okay Im dialing 911,” Clark responded.
“You need to if he dead,” Price said.
Clark addmitted smothering the little boy, and she was taken into custody on charges including criminal homicide.
Coleman McDonough County police Superintendent said the couple lived together only some of the time.
“It just goes to show how texts have become such a routine part of our lives that people don’t even realize the nature of what they’re communicating,” McDonough said.
He said authorities did not expect to file any charges against Price, but the investigation is continuing.
