People like that should never get bail,they should be behind bars for the rest of their life! To bring a life into the world and throw it away like garbage is,unforgiveable,don't give me any horse crud about "oh she was young and made a horrible mistake" she knew exactly what she was doing...She showed no mercey to that poor child,show no mercey to her,she deserves nothing.

I have no idea what I would do as a Father. Could I really turn my daughter in? I have to say that I honestly don't know.

AMEN! This sickens me. How can anyone, including a 17 year old have absolutely no remorse for human life. She should NEVER be allowed to have children again!

ABM, I dont think he knew it was his daughters to begin with whe he contacted the sheriffs office. But I understand what your saying. Might have been different if he had known. Either way this never should have happened. Prayers for that baby.

Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE!! This is so shocking to me that I am lost of words. All I wanted to know is why this young adult couldn't just give her baby up for adoption as soon as the baby was born. Now all of this non-sense could have been prevented for several reasons: 1.) She should have used protection with the child's father,#2.) She should have left the baby in the hospital or agreed for adoption, and #3.) Where was the parents at while she was pregnant, i hope the father wasn't surprised on what he seen in the shallow grave b/c how was she able to go to school every day without her parents asking her who is going to keep the baby? Ummm. This is so sad but the baby is now in a better place and remember you reap just what you sew.

This is so sad. My prayers go out to this family. I'm sure this child never thought about the trouble she would get in if and when this came out and I'm sure her parents are just heart broken. God bless her and her family.

How do you just leave your baby on the back porch to do to school? Why is it that her father didn't know she did this. I mean if you have a 17 year old that just gave birth and it is a school day and you are off to work don't you think you would know where your grandson was going to be while your daughter was in school?!?!? This is a vary sad story. I am just sorry that no one seemed to take the time to prevent it from happening.

I disagree with that statement. Parents try their best to raise children right and still children do unthinkable things.(Most) Teenagers only consider themselves and their little worlds. I think that girl didn't have any motherly instinct and felt she was disposing of a problem. She must pay for her crimes, its very disgusting, but also very childlike...trying to cover it up so she doesn't get caught. I don't think it automatically reflects on her parents because I know once I was a horrible teenager who went against everything I was taught was morally wrong. Although I was never so selfish to even consider doing something so horrible to a baby I've seen teens that I wouldn't put it past. Its the result of an age who feels the world revolves around them and an age of unaccountability. There has to be a mental illness though, this took the thoughtlessness of adolesence to a new level.
