A Virginia grandmother has allegedly thrown her 2½-year-old granddaughter over a shopping mall walkway on a family outing. The child died in the hospital after being thrown from the third floor onto the pavement.
Carmela Dela Rosa (shown above) was reported as being a seemingly “loving” grandmother (whatever that means). Now this loving grandmother has been charged with murder.
Police say they don’t know why Dela Rosa threw her grandchild over the railing and Dela Rosa is being held without bond.
“One of Ms. Dela Rosa’s neighbours, Russell Jackson, described them as “a happy family” and said Ms. Dela Rosa lived with her husband and a son, but that their daughter and granddaughter were frequently at the home.”
How many times have we heard this about the family of children who are raped or murdered by their own blood-related caretakers? “Happiness” is an extremely relative term.
