New York mother suffocates child then posts photo on Facebook
A Queens, New York, mother is in police custody after authorities say that she suffocated her 11-month-old son, before posting pictures of his dead body on Facebook.
According to the New York Post, Nicole “Nikki” Kelly, “uploaded an image of 11-month-old Kiam Felix Jr. lying in a white suit and tie with the caption “RIP Tinkabutt,” alongside a picture of his body in a hospital bed.”
Kelly also posted the following rant…
“Missing my baby boy so much, wish there was some way I could bring him back to life,” Kelly wrote. “I feel horrible knowing he passed away. [I] am his Mother. I was supposed to protect him, I know his spirit will always be around me…”
What the young mother neglected to say is that on Sunday night, while tucking her child in for bed, she smothered him with the very sheet he slept with, holding it tightly over his face all the while watching him struggle to breathe before leaving him alone to die said Queens DA Richard Brown.
Several hours later, Kiam Felix Jr.’s father, Kiam Felix Sr., arrived at the family’s Elmhurst home, saw what had occurred and rushed the boy to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was announced dead.
When asked why she murdered her child, Kelly allegedly responded ““I reached my breaking point, I didn’t want him anymore.”
There has been no word on what charges Kelly faces, but we can only imagine that she will spend the rest of her life in prison both mentally and physically for the murder of her beautiful child. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
