Nineteen year-old, Nicole Kipfmiller, has been charged with leaving her new-born baby in a store dumpster. Investigators say the baby boy had been born alive.
Kipfmiller is charged with three felonies, including second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. It is unknown why the woman did not drop her child off at a safe delivery location that would have given her immunity from prosecution, and would have given her child a new life with an adoptive family.
“Basically, she thought she could deliver the child at home and obviously she got in over her head,” said her attorney. He also said that his client is extremely remorseful.
“She was a good kid,” he said. “There are no skeletons in her closet. She was, and is, an average, easy-going kid.”
I’m sorry, but normal “easy-going” “good” children and teens do not grow up to be people who murder their own child and then throw him in a dumpster.
I grow so tired of people who try and paint those who murder children as ‘typical, nice people’ with a ‘momentary lapse of judgment’ –as if they merely locked their keys in their car.
