If you knew this man, you would know he is guilty as charged.

Short falls can and do cause injuries that are confused as Shaken baby syndrome. There is video taped evidence of this and a pathologist named Dr. Plunkett has demonstrated it.

Having said that, unless you know the details of the case, maybe you should reserve judgement.

I have details about this case none of you can possibly know, including that Elwood Sadowsky suffered from Moyamoya disease, which causes seizures and blackouts. There was evidence at the scene that he had already fallen once that day, before doing so while holding the child he adored.
The only bruising on her at the time she was picked up by the ambulance was a "bruise" identified weeks earlier by the pediatrician as a birth mark and remained unchanged. It can even be seen in earlier photos. She was very ill from birth and independent doctors are finding evidence of a prior bleeding disorder and liver problems which also create a brittle bone condition and spontaneous fractures. He took a guilty plea to protect his wife, as so many in these cases. If you want a dose of reality, read my website which is still under construction and revision, but which deal with science, not conjecture and assumption.

I do know the father and I also happen to know the "baby to one" and "c2Bplus1" and I honestly cannot believe those two demented fools would have the gall to come here and post lies about someone they do/did not know, never met face-to-face, nor never knew his name until this mother talked to them online on a baby website. Those two never knew this family other than the mother's first name until this incident happened. The idea that they would make-up code names and converse on a blog about a topic like this suggests that maybe "baby to one" didn't have enough to do after stealing women's money from that website in this mother's name, but had to make herself feel important by posting on this forum in such a manner, pretending to know this man what-so-ever. Shame on both of them! The truth always comes out in the end. The mother never told anyone other than me that this woman stealing that money. I told her to tell the women, but she didn't want to get involved given what was going on in her life at the time.

Not only does this woman steal money from these mothers from the website, but she comes here to post vile things about a stranger! I do not know why the mother to this deceased child ever went on that site. They were obviously not "friends" as she liked to believe. I guess some people are so into the drama of other people's lives they have to egg it on.

This surely is bordering on some level of psychosis!

I wanted to add to my post. I said he "took a guilty plea to protect his wife" not meaning to protect her from guilt, because she wasn't even home at the time, but the prosecutor was using emotional blackmail, threatening to go after his innocent wife if he didn't take a plea instead of going to trial where any intent to do harm, which is the basis of any criminal prosecution, would have been hard to prove since there was no evidence of "malice aforethought" whatsoever, only of an accident. He also didn't realize that the fact that she was very ill from the first vaccination on may have been the true cause of death and that she had signs of a bleeding disorder that would also likely cause a brittle bone condition that independent doctors are now finding in the medical reports. That would make all fractures of a metabolic nature which could happen spontaneously, from circumstances that wouldn't normally cause such injuries, or as in the case of ribs, look like healing fractures in various stages of healing when it was actually the skin covering on the bones bleeding and becoming callus covered and calcify, looking like healing fractures on x-ray or to the eye.

Thank you for the info you provided in your link. I have followed this story a bit but feel that only the father and God know what really went on. That being said, I have a family friend being accused of shaking his son and he has not been allowed to see his kids for seversl months. From what I have been told of their story their child exhibited many of the signs you talked about in your link and got sick following his i believe 3 month vaccines (i don't remember which ones) but was always a rather sickly child. Thankfully, the boy did not have any permanent injuries but it is still a tragedy that the father has been kept from his family while the case is investigated. Reading your post as well as following Amanda's story, has really opened my eyes to some things and makes me think that there is a definite corollation between the vaccines and these severe reactions that needs to be further examined.

A lot more people will find themselves in ABC's situation if people don't start expecting these doctors to look for the truth.

Differential diagnosis was not done in this case. The assumption of SBS was made long before any of the symptoms where there. In fact, some of the "symptoms" of SBS were manufactured during "treatment" if you can call it that.

ABC, that father will never be allowed to return to his son because of what he is accused of. Follow the money. Those hospitals get grant money for "outing" shaken baby cases. They get accolades and probably honestly think they've found a child abuser. When the emotions get involved there is nothing they're going to do to save that child.

You're very lucky your family friend's son didn't die.

There are a dozen if not more reasons why the triad of Shaken Baby Syndrome (now changed to all abusive head trauma by the AAP so that no one can clear their name because it's already like fighting a ghost).

Ohio does not have full discovery for criminal cases. It's been being fought for, but in 2007 when this man was up for the death penalty his prosecutor could have sat on exculpatory evidence, such as two missing blood tests to this day which have not shown up.

There are many people, ABC, who know what happened to this baby other than God and the birth father. They're just not talking.

Even if the man had a temper....It doesn't mean he would hurt the child...Even if he would hurt the child doesn't mean he hurt the child....To place an innocent person in jail for something that hasn't been proved is matter if the man has a temper or not....Without doing a diffential diagnosis then he has been depraved of his constitutional rights...we are presumed innocent until proven guilty yet so many times it works in the way that we are presumed guilty until we prove ourselves innocent and even then people look at you with guily eyes. Had this man been a famous or very wealthy man....we know the story and conclusions would be a lot different..I don't know this person. It is possible for him to not have caused harm to this child. Even if you know the man and have ill feelings about him you still don't know since you were not there. Saying a prayer for the child is more important than judging this man...regardless if you know him or not. Dr. Plunkett is one of many broadminded doctors that are fighting these predisposed diagnoses of the innocents being labled guilty before ALL of the evidence is presented, researched and laid out on the table. If you haven't spent hundreds of hours studying this subject then do so before passing judgement. This is for you Cameron...Dad loves you

This man is NOT GUILTY. The baby died from a VACCINE reaction and should never have been given vaccines because of the history of seizures in the family. Doctors are suppose to get family history before giving vaccines. They are also suppose to recognize vaccine reactions and discontinue future vaccines. His child was showing adverse reactions right after the HepB shot in the hospital at birth. The doctor could have prevented this tragity, just like thousands of others. There are thousands of INNOCENT people in prison falsely convicted of SBS

Dr. Plunkett is an expert in this field and is correct. He testified in the 2007 Marsha Mills trial but the jury would not listen. Two jurors slept during his testimony. The prosecution forced the jury to view 53 gruesome autopsy photos very slowly not less than four times throughout the trial. Dr Steiner and Dr. Emily Scott testified that a fall down five cement steps to a concrete sidewalk could not cause death. The assistant coroner, Dr. Sterbenz withheld the fact from the jury that the Akron ChildrenÂ’s Hospital doctors gave the toddler uncross-matched blood in a transfusion at the emergency room. The wrong blood can cause bruising and or death. Marsha was baby-sitting two of her four grandchildren with two other children when the child fell off the back porch down the steps. The prosecution claimed she must have just snapped and beat him to death even though the other three children were just fine and there was NO evidence to support the beating theory. I have seen this woman laugh when a baby unexpectedly pissed in her face. She has great patience and a deep love for children. Believe it or not, she is still in prison four years later and being the good Christian that she is, has forgiven everyone that unjustly put her there. Find out more at
