OKLAHOMA: 26-year old Lindsey Fiddler was charged in the death of her newborn daughter by tossing her into a washing machine with dirty laundry. Maggie May was only ten days old.
When police and paramedics got to the crime scene they found the baby still tangled inside the washing machine. Hardened detectives wept, emergency crews were moved to tears and a veteran detective was overcome with grief. Said one paramedic who witnessed the horror: “I don’t even know how to describe it.”
How could a devoted, caring mother commit such a horrific act? Simple – a devoted, caring mother wouldn’t and Lindsey Fiddler was no devoted, caring mother. Drugged up and strung out on methamphetamines, she carelessly lobbed the baby inside the washer, switched it on and dozed off. While her baby spun around in the wash cycle, she lay on the sofa sleeping it off.
When she finally sobered up, she had the good sense not to waste taxpayer dollars by taking the case to trial. Fiddler plead guilty and was sentenced to four years for manslaughter and 30 years for child neglect. She will serve 15 of the 30 years on the child neglect charge.
Drug addition is a sickness but fortunately for victims like Maggie May, who fall prey to drug addled criminals, it is never a defense to criminal conduct.
