Family Outraged After 2-Year-Old’s Kidney Transplant Is Put On Hold Because Dad Violated Parole

A 2-year-old boy will have to wait longer for his kidney transplant after his dad, who was discovered to be a match, violated the terms of his probation.

As AJC reports, the surgery for Anthony Dickerson Jr. was scheduled to take place on October 3 at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. That changed when the father, 26-year-old Anthony Dickerson, was arrested for a parole violation last month.

Dickerson was first arrested in 2011 on misdemeanor theft charges and a first-degree forgery charge. He was arrested for violating his probation in September and charged with possession of a firearm.

While incarcerated, Emory Hospital wrote a letter on his behalf to request that he be given blood work and pre-operative testing for his son, who was born without kidneys.

But in light of the parole violation, the hospital told the child’s mother, Carmellia Burgess, that it was changing its mind. The hospital said it

Family Defends Teen Cheer Camp Volunteer Accused Of Burning, Burying Newborn: She ‘Is A Pleaser’

The family of a teen accused of burning and burying her newborn baby in her parent’s backyard are defending her actions.

Over the summer, 18-year-old Brooke Skylar Richardson was charged with reckless homicide after police in Carlisle, Ohio made the discovery of a dismembered and burned body, Dayton Daily News reports. Those charges were later upgraded, following a grand jury indictment, to aggravated murder, voluntary manslaughter, child endangerment and gross abuse of a corpse.

Several of Richardson’s family members – the teen’s maternal and paternal grandparents, some uncles, aunts, and cousins – spoke to the Cincinnati Magazine.

All of them told the publication that they believe their relative is innocent of the charges. They said they believe the baby was born stillborn, and that the only one aware of Richardson’s pregnancy was Richardson herself. The family members said they think that Richardson was scared. “They agree that the disposal of

Arby’s Manager Stabbed To Death By Employee, Family Desperate For Answers

Family members of a suburban Chicago fast food restaurant manager who was stabbed to death last week were seeking answers at the scene, where they said police had not yet told them how or why he was killed. Autopsy results have since been released, but some questions still remain. 

John Price, 35, was working the overnight shift at Arby’s in Hickory Hills, where he has worked for five years, when he was killed. The Cook County medical examiner’s office determined on Friday Price died from multiple sharp-force injuries and ruled the death a homicide. An Arby’s employee, Irvin Thomas, 26, is being charged with first-degree murder for the stabbing and will appear in court Tuesday. Police found Thomas at his residence, where he was taken into custody.

Though police have now updated family and the public, details surrounding Price’s death were unclear in the hours after his alleged murder.

Here’s What Maura Murray’s Family Members Think Happened To Her

On February 9, 2004, the 21-year-old nursing student emailed her professors at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and her employer requesting time off after a death in her family. The death turned out to be made up. That night, she crashed her car into a tree in northern New Hampshire. A few witnesses called the police, and when they showed up, Maura was gone.

Last week, Oxygen.com published some of the most compelling theories of what might have happened to Maura. On the first episode of the “Disappearance of Maura Murray,” Maura’s own family members, who rarely speak to the media, talked about what they think happened.

MAURA’S SISTER

Maura’s older sister by two years, Julie, said that she was very close to Maura. She revealed on Saturday’s premiere of the show what she thinks might have happened.

Manson Family Murderer Granted Parole In Unexpected Decision

Leslie Van Houten, former Manson Family member, was found suitable for parole by a two-person panel after a Wednesday hearing in California.

The 68-year-old woman was the youngest of Charles Manson’s followers, according to the Associated Press.

But, Van Houten is not a free woman yet. Her release must first be approved by the state Parole Board before being approved by Governor Jerry Brown. He blocked her release last year, NBC and the AP reports. In his 2016 decision, Brown wrote that Van Houten failed to explain her disturbing transformation from “upstanding teen” to cold-blooded killer.

Mom Tells Family 1-Year-Old Overdosing On Heroin Just Ate Bug Spray, Refuses To Take Him To Hospital

An Indiana woman is under arrest after she didn’t take her 1-year-old son to the hospital last week as he overdosed on heroin, telling people instead that he had simply eaten “bug spray,” a local NBC affiliate reported.

Daisha Sue Clark, 28, later told police that she found her infant son with plastic in his mouth and powder on his face, court records claim.

A relative said that the boy got sick and stopped breathing, but Clark insisted that the boy had only bitten a bottle of bug spray and didn’t need to go to the hospital, court records said.

When the family member took the boy anyway, doctors were able to revive the child by using a drug on him that is used for opioid overdoses. The boy was later released.

Police found a syringe in Clark’s bedroom filled with brown liquid, along with burnt spoons covered in white residue.

Clark has several
