totally agree with UGH....if CPS had already removed children from this person...why ALLOW her to keep this one...CPS really needs to step it up and if there were signs of abuse/neglect from the very get go...remove the children for good and not subject them to further trauma....u make a parent go thru classes...but if the mother/father has a problem that needs to be treated with medication...it does them no good cuz the problem is really not being treated....

I do know jeremy, and he was a good father. He always put them first. He got them what ever they wanted and need. Accidents do happen. It is sad for the baby. Its a shame everyone is talking about him but no one ever says anything about the mother. She ids a striper she does drugs and treats her kids bad, but no one knows what really happened but the ppl that where there. Maybe she did that to the baby. Jeremy is a really good guy. And I dont beleave he would ever hurt and child. But thats just my thoughts.

only they know what happened. Diff stories on both parents. He's locked away not saying he's guilty or innocent but he could b taking blame 4 something he didn't do. The mom has she stepped forward to what she knows. Actions speak louder than words. From other comments he's not baby daddy. What will happen when he is located & told of this tragedy.

Its a very tragic situation. What makes me angry is that 2 children were already taken away and CPS let her keep the 2 younger ones. Things like this always happen, they wait until a child is dead before they do anything. I've known Jeromy since he was a kid but he was on drugs and was not in his right mind. We have 2 face the fact that maybe he just snapped. The mother is to blame as well because she neglected to get the baby the medical attention he needed. There is only one victim and that is the baby that will never take his first step, will never make it to his first day of school, will never grow up to be a good father to his own children.

WTF, I cannot believe you just wrote that. Do honestly think and ER would turn away a child because they are in serious condition and the responsible parent is not there?

He could have taken him to the ER for help, but he chose not to for whatever reason. Maybe he didn't hurt the child, but he did contribute to his death by not seeking medical attention. In my book, that is just as horrendous as committing the deed.

Just know this...the next time your child (if you have one)or any child is in serious need of medical attention and I am around it, I WILL MAKE DAMN SURE THAT CHILD IS TAKEN TO THE PROPER PLACE FOR HELP.

All he had to do was call 911. I totally agree with everything you have said. A lack of ignorance is no excuse for this baby to have died.

You know, it is sick how so many people knew wheather she was a good mom, did drugs,or whatever else she did. And even her mom is mentioned here. But did anybody ever report it. If you never reported it yourself, you should not talk or write anyting. Because you helped kill the child. I have no idea who the parents were, but you need to watch what you say. Think first did you ever do anything when you knew what was going on.

CPS knew this already & they still let her keep 2kids. Other 2 were removed.

They were both wacked out on meth and she is just as much to blame if not more, she didn't care and as soon as the child died then shen wanted to point fingers.

Thank you so much for being kind...Jeromy is and was a great Dad, I still believe he is innocent as the proof has shown the baby had bite marks which where traced back to the mother and and there was other proof....so Jeromy was not convicted of murder instead it was failure to render aid...I am hoping he comes home soon...
