Albany, Georgia mother Tessa Soilberry was arrested Saturday after law enforcement officials were called to her home to report the death of  her infant. Upon entering the home, investigators noticed that there were five other children in the house that was deemed unfit to live in because of the amount filth and disarray. The baby, named Kingston, was only six months old and the child’s death has preliminarily been ruled possible natural causes. According to law enforcement officials, four of the five children present in the house belonged to Soilberry. The children have since been removed from the home and are staying with family members.

Many family members defended Soilberry and stated the incident was not all her fault. Rosetta Mitchell, the grandmother of one of the children, said, “She needs help. She don’t need to be locked up. She don’t need to be scandalized. She needs help.” Mitchell went on to state, “No one has come to help. They just come to complain and look and talk about how it is. She has four children. She is unemployed. She don’t have no income…. I want the officials to turn her loose so she can bury her baby and find some place to stay.”

At this time, the family is simply cleaning the apartment and trying to raise the $5,000 bail in order to get Soilberry out in time to bury her child. Soilberry was not charged for the child’s death. She was charged with  five counts of reckless conduct and endangering the welfare of children.

    the grandmother is nutts .. why on earth would anyone think those kids should be given back to a woman who should incapability of making good decisions for the health of the babies .. why???? she is bout as coo coo as the mother … if she has no job that mean the state is at fault ,she should been getting food stamps and now days they stop giving welfare to single mothers and they try to find the fathers of the kids ..but some fathers have no job and is locked up so how does that work.. .. i think around the early 90s they disbanded welfare and now young women have to find jobs even if they mentally challenged , the state totally is at fault cause a case worker should have been upon keeping up with this woman ….. unless child service was not called dont kids go to school .?? how come the teachers didnt see something …. you cant expect for a single mother with no job to care for kids … our system really fail single moms now days ..

    God bless her… she lost her child to natural causes and they won’t let her out to bury him…. what a piece of sh!t they are. i bet their houses are not as clean as hers so they find something to lock her up for. cps was not called due to mistreatment of the children nor did we hear any claims of child abuse or markings on the other children… smh

    How is it not her fault?? You are a grown woman with no job, yet you couldn’t even find time to clean your filth??

    Time to close your legs, get your tubes tied, because you are unfit to ever have another child.
