June 2nd, 2009 by admin

(NECN/WCJB: Ocala, Fla.) – Ocala Police said that at around 5 Saturday evening, they were called out to the area of NW 24th avenue and 17th street in response to a baby girl being found in a box.

An area resident was leaving his home, when he saw a box sitting on the corner. When he took a closer look he saw a hand reaching out.

The residents cared for the baby girl until police could arrive.

She was covered with ants on her body and face.

Area resident Patricia Kinsler said,”If they can stop on the corner and put her down there, they could have easily came and put her on my porch or any bodies porch. They didn’t have to leave her down there like that”.

The baby girl is in doing alright and is in DCF custody.

Police are still investigating and said this is a very serious charge of child neglect.

They are looking for a grey pickup truck with a white top that may have been in the area around 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

    Is it just me or does Florida seem to have the “babies are disposable” mentality. Child murder, neglect and torture seems to run rampid in that state! What is wrong with people. That poor little baby girl! Left to die in a god damn box! Whoever did this should be jailed…forever! I don’t care if she/he is on drugs or has been abused or “panicked” or whatever other excuses are used to defend such disgusting acts of child abuse and neglect. There are plenty of options for people who don’t want to be parents anymore for whatever reason! It’s barbaric to hear what the children of this earth endure at the hands of their parents..every day you read about another helpless and innocent child being thrown away like trash.
    THERE IS NO EXCUSE!
