I was on my way to comment on the Caylee Anthony murder case-- and I ran across this story. G-A-W-D!!! You're right!!! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE???? And on CHRISTMAS yet??? It's ALMOST pointless to comment anymore on the amount of sickness and craziness that permeates society anymore!!! That's about ALL you can say--- "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG, ALREADY???"

As sick as this is, Port St. Lucie isn't in Central Florida. Please stick to IL geography, please.

She is a crime against nature like that other murderer - Casey Anthony. These kind of people need exterminated immediately. There is no defense.

I don't know why I continue to follow the news. Why this kid was killed because of his mothers problems? I will never understand life, nor do I want to.

I agree Paul...this is a sick world we live in. I cant believe any mother can do that to thier 8 year old child!!! Heaven forbid you ask another family member to help you, or DAD, or something, this is rediculous and heartbreaking! Makes me sick!! Financial issues is not a reason to kill your child, thats why we all pay taxes, either get a job, or get government assistance, I would rather know that a mom is doing whatever she can to take care of her kids rather than killing them, especially on CHRISTMAS!!!! I feel so horrible for this child!!! I cant believe it...

"Allegra told investigators she had been having financial problems since August 2007."

If Casey ever admits to what she did to Caylee, she'll probably use financial problems as an excuse. I'm sure her mother will bring her up to date on all of these crimes.

Couldn't pay your bills...yet in a Hotel?
Pathetic.... there's so much help out there. She could have done whatever to herself, but why punish your child for your own mistakes??

I dont have any kids, but after spending Christmas at my brothers with his two 5 and 8 year old boys, I can completely understand the urge to smother them.
