Missouri Mother Murders Baby By “Accidentally” Putting Her In Oven

Posted February 11, 2024 by with 8 comments

It’s a common mistake so many people make. You think you’re putting your baby down for a nap in its crib, but instead, you accidentally open the oven, place the baby on the rack, then close the door and set the temperature to 350 degrees.

News out of Kansas City, Missouri via ABC:

Upon arrival, officers observed the infant victim had apparent burn wounds, according to the court documents. The Kansas City Fire Department responded and declared the 1-month-old dead at the scene, according to the court documents.

Thomas alleged she was putting the child down for a nap and accidentally mistakenly placed the child in the oven instead of the crib, according to the court documents.

“I thought I put [infant’s name redacted] in her crib, and I accidentally put her in the oven,” Thomas allegedly told the infant’s grandfather, who gave a statement to police, according to the court documents.


Tomayto, tomahto. Potato, potahto. Crib, oven. Makes sense.

The 26-year-old former mother was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Is that supposed to be a euphemism for murder?

While this is a tragedy, it’s obviously not surprising, and it’s a classic example of traditional right-wing Christian family values. Abortions are now 100% banned (with zero exceptions for incest and rape) in the deep red state of Missouri, so we can expect to see hundreds if not thousands of mentally ill and unfit mothers murdering their babies en masse in the years ahead. Republicans are no doubt proud.
