please save the children from beasts like her. Hopefully the doctors will find an excuse to sterilize this animal when she has this baby.

Do not ever let her around children again.

....and you know what stinks???? she'll have this next baby and then be allowed to raise it as she's awaiting trail for the murder of her son. why didn't she give that little boy up for adoption? she clearly hated him. i suppose the best we can hope for is that she gives birth and then kills herself. her children will be safer then!

This woman is obviously a sick individual and should NEVER have children......any children she has now should be taken away for good and she should be sterilized for sure! May Kaydn RIP......he is in a better place now. God Bless him......

This girl should loose all her kids and be put in Jail for Murder with no possibility of parol. This poor child, I wish if these girls did not want the children they should put them up for adoption theres many couples that cannot have children. The sad part is that its to easy for these type of people to claim depression and mental illness. Lock her up and throw away the key.

Hang the DB!

on her 4th child, 23y.o., and i can almost guarantee a section 8 recipient. I would be willing to bet 4 different fathers too...P.O.S.!! It kills me that there are folks out there that cannot have children on their own for medical reasons or whatever, that would make great parents, and then we hear about these parents that take the lives of their own children and continue popping out more. Unreal!

"mandatory sterilization law"...I would have to agree!

I 3rd it! This story makes me sick. Absolutely sick. That boy little boy and what he had to go through before she put him out of his misery. Take her baby when its born & toss her into a dumpster, cuz thats what she deserves. I dont understand why she just didnt give him up for adoption.

Why didn't this girls family step in at some point?? Not one of them thought hey something is wrong here? This little boy could have been raised in a loving, caring environment if someone, anyone, a family member, family peditrician would have taken the time to notice that something was not right. This story seems so outlandish. I cannot believe people live this way!

Kaydn William Hancock Memorial Fund
C/0 Sovergien Bank
307 Main St
Acton, MA 01720
This fund is set up to help the surviving sibling
This fund was originally set up to help pay for Kaydn's funeral expenses since only a few family members have money. This burden has fallen onto Kaydn cousin who is very young but the only one who has a good job and pretty much takes care of everything for her family! She is the one who set up the account and would manage the account. She has had to endure too much with her family members at such a young age. If anyone would like to donate, rest assured it is going to help pay for the funeral and other expenses related to the children. She shouldn't have to pay for everything along with her school loans and anything else that is not her responsibility. She's a good kid and any donations would be very much appreciated!

After the baby is born and put into state custody they should rip her uterus out and let her bleed to death. Why should evil monsters like her get three squares and a bunk.

These stories make me sick,13 months old.Barely able to walk.Why don't people like this ask for help before something like this happens.The really sad part is that this poor baby has probably suffered this all of his very short life.She should be stretched to death after childbirth,Brave Heart style....
