I lived off of 135 and there are many houses right off of it, it's not the parents fault I'm sure they feel horrible enough with this tragic loss, also I'm not a parent but work in a daycare with that age group they are sneaky and can be gone in two seconds accidents happen I hope they catch the guy that ran. Prison has nothing compared to what he has to live with for the rest of his life's he will have explains to do when he meets Jesus one day. The LORD works in ways no one will ever understand

I was just told by a reliable source that the little boy was not hit by a car!!! He was not feeling good and was fussy. So the BOYFRIEND took him for a ride to try to calm him down. It didn't work and the BOYFRIEND beat him to death and was going to leave him in the ditch. He finally admitted to it a few hours ago. Now we know why that supposed car didn't stop and no one knew what color or make of the car was. There was no car! Whoever this man is should be punished serverly! How can anyone do this to a 3 year old that is helpless. Little kids should be able to depend on their parents to keep them safe. NOT KILL THEM!!!! I am so disgusted by this and it makes my stomach turn everytime I think about it. This man must be the biggest sleeze ball on the earth. Which makes the mother a sleeze as well.

The mother was at work and had no clue or part in it and she has lost her son because she trusted someone. A lot of us have made that mistake. A word to all parents... Be careful who you trust with your kids. They are counting on you to protect them from danger! Pray for the family!!!

That is why they both are SLEEZE bags!!! How could a mother even think to do that. The more I hear about this I get even more digusted. I just hope that the rest of her children were taken away from her.

Such a horrific loss. No child should have to go through that. I hope these folks get what they have coming to them! In my opinion, they should face the same thing as that innocent little boy did.

Look how far J. Miller has fallen. I would like to see her and TJ both get the death penalty.

She has three other children Blake, two of them she didn't even have custody of and she had custody of her the year old boy and her two year old girl, no clue where the little girl was during all of this but she is facing child endangerment charges because of the condition of her girl. My boyfriend used to watch the two kids when the mom was at work, she and his ex were good friends apparently. He said that she used to take horrible care of her kids. He's really sad and angry over what happened someone needs to pay for what they did

Anyone who upholds either one of these two should be put in that childs place. How can a mother know what this monster did to her child and help him cover it up and then pt him in a cold wet ditch? I would LOVE for them to be set free so some of the real tough guys who love their children could show them both what it feels like to be beat to death!

Blake wasn't even his, she tried to cover up for a man that isn't even the father of her children

I was told that the little girl was in the car as well. Even though she was 2, she will remember this to some extent.

This makes me sick. I pray that they both get what they deserve for this. To take a life of an innocent child is disgusting. What makes me sick is the beating of this child. SOmeone needs to beat the hell out of him. She needs to be just as guilty. I would be crazy if someone beat my child.

according to abc nightly news the 3 year old younger sister was able to state exactly what happened at the home prior to leaving in the car. Worth looking up so you have the facts accurate. Pretty insane that a 3 year old held the details she did.

I can't begin to imagine the horror this child endured prior to being beaten to death for soiling his pants. The mere image of Tom Presley beating an innocent 3 year old baby to death actually makes me nauseated.

There is no punishment sufficient to equate justice for an act as horrible as this. Surely, crimes such as this beg a death sentence for the guilty. However, knowing the judicial system, I suspect he will suffer far less than is deserved.
