Every time I think they've reached a new low... they show me that they're just getting started. The family trend is to get pregnant at the age of roughly 16 and proceed to drop out of high school. No one in the family has a legitimate job. Mrs. Bacon supports them with our tax dollars and... a paper route. For real. She delivers news papers early in the morning...well, sort of. She actually drives in a car that she stole from her 94 year old grandmother and then makes her 10-13 year old kids run the papers out to door steps. For real. On school days no less. Can you imagine your mom waking you up at 3 in the morning to deliver papers as the sole non-welfare source of income for your family on a school day?

Wait, I'm not done. The car broke down and now Mrs Bacon is pissed at her nearly broke 94 year old grandmother for not buying her a new one or fixing the one she stole from her. Hmmmm...why is she broke? I know why! She paid the legal and defense fees for that "accident" 5 years ago...and she bought the previous trailer Mrs. Bacon had lived in before she and her children tore it to pieces and made it unlivable...which is one of their hobbies because her 94 year old grandmother actually bought her a house in milan before that; they piled trash in the yard and abandoned the house leaving grandma a nearly unsellable house and fines from the city for all the garbage...Grandma then bought her another house which they eventually did the same to. Of all the children she has over the age of 18, only 1 has finished high school and has a job and has yet to have a poverty stricken child born out of wed-lock...and the reason this ONE turned out ok? Mrs Bacon abandoned her at birth and she was lucky enough to be raised by grandma...in her 80's and 90's. Now grandma is raising yet another of Mrs Bacon's children whom she has openly admitted she doesn't want.

Could there be more? Yes. Would you be interested to know that Mrs Bacon has a purse fetish? She often spends what little money she makes on new purses which she has many of, or on a bi weekly basis she enjoys getting her hair done and having her nails done. And why not? She works hard driving that stolen car arround and making her children work early in the morning before school. She deserves to pamper herself every now and then. I've seen the inside of multiple places that they've resided in. I was actually asked at one point to help clear out trash from a living room because child services was on the way over...let anyone who does not know the situation first hand know this. These children live in cockroach infested rooms littered with dirty diapers and moldy food. THe adults are often drunk and MIA leaving the eldest CHILD or 13 to take care of the others. In fact child services stopped by the trailer a couple nights after the death of little Louis Jr only to find that Mrs Bacon, Dorey, and whatever 'men' were living there were all out partying leaving the children to themselves. This includes 2 infants. I'm done thinking "when will these kids get help?" They won't. They will not. I know this. I've watched it. Every time the authorities get involved they say the family is on the line, almost in violation. So I guess IL doesn't care about kids.

Wow, just wow! On the line? If that is considered on the line, I would hate to see what real neglect and abuse is considered! Your kid just dies and you're out partying. DCFS and police need to get a freaking clue! I am beyond pissed at the state. I was actually brave enough to speak on behalf of that poor baby, and other people did as well. Yet the state did nothing. I can almost guarantee that the baby's death was NOT an accident. Did they even test her for drugs when she had him? If not, they should have been. They should have been randomly testing her for drugs all along. I know for a fact she would have failed!

to friend of the family- you are right on everything you have said on here its all true! whats a shame is that she will continue to get away with having babies and not taking care of them and the children are so scared about being token away and seperated they will not tell anyone anything and you should see the number of days of school some of these kids miss having to take care of sick babies or doing the paper route with their mother! they dont even get to take baths properly or wash their hair or anything like that they dont even get to eat correctly because their mother doesnt know how to cook there has been many nights they went to bed hungry or went to sleep having only little cakes from the gas station and nothing else! the 13 year old is basically mommy to her siblings and it sickens me that noone has done anything to her and she keeps having baby after baby that is mistreated and neglected! i saw one of the children this summer with a horrible rash from head to toe and her mother never even took her to the doctor poor girl had it for over a month! and still noone did anything!

also this woman will by a purse before she buys medication or baby wipes! she uses up her 1500.00 in food stamps on stupid stuff and then the baby goes without formula and the kids without the little bit of food they do get! its absolutly ridiculous! Dorey yes she has been partying up getting drunk and high every night and she takes something so she can pass the drug test why dont they take a blood test or hair sample or something! dorey, her mother and her sister get on here to comment about what we are saying well why arent you grieving for your innocent little boy instead of telling everyone you did NO wrong and that you were a damn good mom! you were a pathetic mom always having different dudes over your house and smoking weed in your apartment with the baby there getting drunk with the baby there allowing underage people to drink and get high in your place then always talking about this guy and that guy leaving the baby all the time with people you barely new i mean what the hell!!!?? your mother is a real piece of work she is disgusting!

She thought she was a damn good mom?! Hahahaha. That's the funniest thing I've heard all day! More like worst mother of the year. She must be pretty high to think she's a good mom. Or shot up one time too many.

It didn't matter if Louis was living with her or not. He wasn't supposed to be around her, or the baby. The dude beat her doors down to get in. Then when DCFS was called on her and they came out she denied that he was there, and said she hadn't seen him in over a month. That was a lie. He was hiding behind a dresser when the DCFS person was there. There was also a bruise found on the baby that was reported, and DCFS didn't even bother to look at the baby.

Maybe had she not let Louis around, fought with him all of the time, and smoked weed, she wouldn't have been evicted. The main reason she got evicted was because they found over a pound of weed in her apartment and notified the cops. If you're living in government housing, and on government money and have money to buy and smoke weed, you don't need to live there. She wouldn't even go back and get her stuff. This whole family is a disgrace to society.

Heartless?! We're not the ones pumping out child after child for state benefits. This family has been in "hard times" for years and years and still continues to have children. There is such a thing as birth control and getting your tubes tied. Hell, they both need a total hysterectomy so they can't have anymore babies! It must be rough living off of the tax papers money and spending it on alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs....which all seem to be more important than their children!

Forget about the taxpayer money, someone please help these children. My heart breaks that they don't get to eat & are drug out of bed by that monster that they call Mom to make her some money. I shudder to think about what we don't know that is going on behind those closed doors. God be with these children, you are all that they have. I would love to cook these kids a dinner or two but that wouldn't solve the problems that they will continue to endure if they are left with this monster.

i fear GOD and love him with every ounce of my soul! Bad times hit all people and horrible things can happen to the best of them but the fact of the matter is is that some people shouldnt be allowed to be parents or keep their children! That when horrible things happen you learn from it and when they do happen you are remorsful and show that the horrible thing affected your life not go shopping or get high and drunk everyday deal with the fact that you lost the most precious thing in the world to you and show that you are saddened by the event not act like it was nonexsistent! People are saying things because people who know this family are telling everyone how these children really live as a god fearing human being wouldnt you agree that god's children shouldnt be treated the way these children are?? or maybe you arent the god fearing person you act to be??

to add to this she was also kicked out because management found drugs in her apartment so if you know so much why were drugs in her apartment and why was she doing drugs with her baby around and why is it you want to make her sound like she was the best parent out there?? how would you know?? she was far from a damn good parent as she wants to put it!! she wasnt a pathetic excuse for a mother just as her own mother! so i dont understand why all you people want to stick up for her worthless ass! thats right because this is most likely her writing all of this stuff on here or her little dumb ass friends!

The people sticking up for her must not have read all of the comments from the people that know this family first hand. Notice, not one person who knows this family, has one nice thing to say about them. It's in times like this that you're friends are supposed to be there for you, so this goes to show how crappy of parents they really are.

That poor baby was laid to rest yesterday, yet his mother is still out walking around living her life, partying it up, and doing drugs daily. Her a$$ should be in jail! If she was supposedly texting people and telling people she killed the baby, then why is no one speaking up to the authorities or DCFS. Why is no one checking her phone records? Hell, she was too busy texting on her phone when the police got there after Louis died. She wasn't even paying attention to the cop, so he took her phone from her. Not to mention she wasn't even sad or crying over her sons death.

Nope. I read them. Just not into knee-jerk hysteria and lynch mob mentality.

we all hit lows in our lives most of us will hopefully never lose a child but we all hit lows and lose people that are important in our lives and for you to only address this shows me your mentality i for one am not in knee jerking hysterics or lynch mob mentality but want people to know the real situation! not the fabricated lies that you and others are accepting! if you are really "the Light" then you would understand why people are upset!yes many people including myself should give them all the benefit of the doubt! this was a tragic event and unintentional on top of that but it possibly could of been prevented! but what i personally want is for dorey and her family to grow from this not stay in there same predicatment which is what IS happening and that is a fact!

Judging from the posted comments on the creepy McCorkle/Bacon what-ever they call themselves, litter-mates (can't justify them as a family)...If a Judge and jury were to have heard this as testimony...Ms. McCorkle/ Bacon would be on her way to JAIL. The same goes for her teen aged daughters that have the horrifying mindset that getting pregnant is the highlight of teen years (next to drinking, partying and drugging). Juvenile Detention would be a most excellent place for them!!!

Don't coddle them...they brought about this unfortunate situation themselves. While we, the taxpayers, and workers of legitimate jobs, pay for them to cheat, lie and steal..How does that make YOU feel??? FEEL SORRY FOR THEM???....NEVER!!!!!!
