Dead baby / Shawn Bond

Dead baby / Shawn Bond

Dates: 1977

Report by Shawn Bond, who collected information from Vicki Anderson. The report has two stories on one page; the second fits the theme here. (The first concerns a woman who smuggles heroin inside her baby by eviscerating it.) According to the story, a babysitter is supposed to arrive fifteen minutes after a woman leaves for a three-day trip, but does not show up; the baby has bitten into its own arm with hunger when she returns.
