Sixteen may be young but … it takes a certain type person to do something like this.
Her name is Lauryn Last and she lives in the Seattle, Wash. area. It was Dec. ’08 when she went into labor. Now this girl had to be terrified for sure, so it’s understandable if she stayed in the bathroom and had the baby alone. There are no words for what she did next.
In an affidavit Lauryn Last said: “… put her baby face down into a toilet and let it drown for several minutes until it died. Then she threw her son into a trash can outside in a plastic garbage bag.” Police found the body at the dump and Last has been charged with murder.
The AP article didn’t say anything about her mother, but implicated that her father helped her get rid of the baby.
If her dad was going to help, maybe he could have found a way to the emergency room. I’m just sayin’. You can leave babies at hospitals now, no questions asked, can’t you?
Makes me wonder how she could call the baby “her son.”
