Chloe Menager

Update at 2:53: Menager told WFAA's Brad Watson she has demons in her. See his tweet -- complete with creepy picture -- after the jump.

Yesterday afternoon, police pulled over a man on Singleton Boulevard who told them that he had just gotten a call: his 1-year-old child was dead. Police followed the man to an apartment in the 4300 block of Wyoming where they found the infant's body.

This morning, police announced they have charged 25-year-old Chloe Menager with capital murder. She's in Dallas County Jail with bail set at $1 million.

According to the Morning News, Menager allegedly held the child underwater in the bath tub until he drowned.

The child's name has not yet been released, and Menager's relationship to him is unclear.

Update at 9:08 a.m.: DPD has confirmed what was already assumed. Menager is the child's mother.

Your pure and utter ignorance and complete lack of respect appalls me. I know this very congregation and I know that they are in no way to blame and have no responsibility of this woman's actions. Whoever posted the video of the "nut jobs" must be one him/herself because I can in no way understand how someone in their right mind can judge anyone based on a video that shows nothing incriminating. This woman was sick. Yes, she is guilty. The two are aren't mutually exclusive. Maybe this can bring to light the great need there is to treat mental illness in urban settings where the stigma is great. it's a pity most of you will dare to incriminate a whole other group's faith. 


Again, they just need to bring her out back, and shoot her.......there is never an excuse to kill a child. EVER. Makes me sick to my core!  And the influx of these cases in the past few years, and the insanity plea, makes it OK to do one of natures most UNNATURAL acts. 


This is the most disturbing mugshot I've seen in quite a while.

This story first broke on last night's news as a pool drowning.

sick sick sick, absolutely digusting.  rot in hell



It is because that "faith" pushes a belief in Demons and God(s) that are so powerful that humans can not even compare to them.  So when someone does have a mental illness that could be monitored and treated they don't believe that humans can help them and turn instead to their "God" with the predictable results of a dead child.

Incriminating a faith is nothing compared to what belief in that faith can do.




Right?  You have this precious little thing that relies upon you , and you worry about it 23.5 hours a day, and spend half a life making sure said human is productive.....and then you have some crazy f+cking bitch that drowns a baby, or cuts his/her arms off?  SICK.
