Just to set things straight... She DIDN'T hurt her baby! If u really know her then u would know she would NEVER hurt any of her kids, nor would she let someone hurt them! Leave the judgement up to god! Who the hell do u think u are passing judgement on anyone! She's an amazing mother and friend! This family has enough on their plate and they don't need ignorant people like you spreading this rediculous assumptions about them! They loved and cared for that baby deeply!!!and always will

Why would you post anything you had just "heard" on a public forum that would just invite more judgment and controversy? This family is grieving for the loss of their little boy. He was a beautiful, precious child, and we should be joined together in prayer for this little one and his loving family. I am deeply saddened by this and I hope everyone who is posting negative comments here and around the web would just stop and think about this situation and what they would do under the same circumstances. Ryland's family loved him. I know this for a fact. Please do unto others.......

You are absolutely correct, the family is greiving but on the same hand there is a dead little inniocent 2 year old, and for some reason it is considered suspicious!! So it is really hard for people not to judge considering noone knows what happened, but them but it may not be the mothers fault but have heard she was keeping some rough company while her husband is gone? So it is sad for the family and everyone but someone is responsible and we do not know who??? So obviously fingers are pointed at her, because she is the mother but in the end hopefully the jerk will be punished and she can have peace!

they need to investigate DSS since the grandmother went to them to get them to investigate weeks ago and no one bothered. his father didn't hurt him because he's in jail... maybe his mothers new man?

which grandmother? Randalls mom? well it is a shame he is in jail and he probably has no idea she had someone else there!!! Well is there any details yet what took place or whether she was there and allowed it! I am assuming if the grandmother was concerned then something must have been happening for awhile????

yes - calm down. I am sure we will have more details soon, but the main thing is to show this family some courtesy and respect while they try to cope with such a tragedy. Too many people want to jump to conclusions and play the blame game... I am not sure why.

Wow i really hope that is not true! If this is accurate then she doesnt deserve to be free right now, and I hope it is not true from what I know of her she seemed a good mother! Does anyone know about the father or if he knew she had a boyfriend! I have seen comments from his family that are very accusational. Just wondering because the death of a child id really bothering me, and i didnt know him that well.
