In this podcast episode about crime, we discuss a very vile and sad story that occurred in Maryland. The story speaks for itself. And I’m starting to see more stories, especially within true crime news that involves mothers doing despicable things to their children. And without further delay, I don’t want to waste your time so I’m just gonna go right to the story in this one, courtesy of true crime daily Maryland woman found guilty of suffocating newborn in zipped plastic bag after a home birth. This happened and Howard County and there’s a picture here of a 41 year old mother and she clearly looks disturbed and deranged and mentally ill. She has red bright red, what is it? What would they call it reddish hair and a glare that clearly shows trauma and mental instability. So the story goes on to say that a 41 year old mother was recently found guilty of second degree murder and first degree child abuse involving the suffocation death of her child in 20. A teen According to a news release from the Office of the State Attorneys of Howard County on November 1, 2018, officers from the Howard County Police Department responded to a hospital after Moira Akers was transported there via ambulance. Akers had reportedly failed to tell medical staff that she had just given birth at home. Brace yourselves people brace yourselves. This is not for the faint of heart. According to the State Attorney’s Office, investigators conducted a search of acres home and found a deceased newborn male in a zipped plastic bag under a blanket in a closed door closet. acres told authorities the infant was stillborn.

However, according to the State Attorney’s Office, an autopsy was performed on November 2 2018, one day after and that report revealed that the baby was born full term and healthy and he died due to a fifth a fixation and exposure. The death was ruled a homicide. Goodness gracious. Oh, this is so incredibly sad. On April 27 2022, the State Attorney’s Office says Akers was found guilty by a Howard County Circuit Court jury. She is scheduled to be sentenced on July 29 And could face up to life in prison. Absolutely, definitely deserving. In a statement, state attorneys rich Gibson said this was truly one of the most difficult cases my office has ever had to prosecute, because we had the burden of proving the baby was born alive. He added that thanks to the great work of the H CPD detectives, our prosecutors and the office of chief medical examiner and other experts. We were able to prove to a jury that the egregious and unconscionable actions of Miss acres ultimately led to the murder of her own child. After three and a half years of working on this case. We are grateful the jury found Miss acres guilty of this heinous crime and we were able to obtain justice for baby acres Oh man, that is so sad because the reason why they’re calling him baby acres is he didn’t even have his name yet. So incredibly sad. Oh, my goodness, what I’ll say is this, she needs to be in prison yesterday. And cases like this. Like, just make me think about mental illness and sickness and how prevalent it is in society and how often how common it is, and like what do we do to kind of combat that? What can be done to prevent things like this from happening? In that situation, if you are of sound mind which this lady clearly is not? What would cause you to do something so vile, why couldn’t you just give the kid up for adoption? I just did a story about a woman who was beating on her child and abusing her child. Tia, Mosley will tee up Hoesley on IG live for gratification online and for revenge against the father. But this is to a whole nother level. You could just give the baby up to adoption, I don’t understand how a mother somebody that’s supposed to be nurturing could do something so evil. I do think that there is true evil in the world, in this case, is a prime example of that.

What I’ll say is, mental health is real. If you see something and you see people acting, we’re acting strange. Do me a favor, speak to somebody about it, let people know. Because there is real grave consequences for people in this world who allow people like this to just kind of walk around. And yeah, this is just a sad one I don’t understand. And I don’t know what we can do as a society to prevent things like this from happening. And postpartum depression is real. There are serial killers, there are murderers, there are people who are just bad and evil people. And that is clearly the case with this incident. But what I want to impart on you and let you know is if you are going through anything mentally, if you are mentally unstable, if you have people who are depending on you, if you have people who are looking to you for support. Do me a favor. And before you make any brash decisions, and you have somebody that is depending on you, please give them to somebody of sane mind, please give them up for adoption. Please do anything but violence against an innocent who didn’t ask to be here didn’t ask for anything completely dependent upon you. And I see things like this, and it definitely makes me contemplate what life is all about. And why are we here at the end of the day. But we have to keep moving forward, we have to keep moving on. And I just stress mental health. I stress if you have any thoughts in your mind about causing harm to yourself or others seek help seek guidance. And if you see anything that if if you read anything or if you see anything and you’re interacting with someone that some seems off, please talk to somebody about it. Because you never know you could be saving someone’s life you could be saying in that person’s life, you could be saving people that that person encounters. I just want to raise awareness that there are people who are very disturbed in this world. And people have seen mine and people who have compassion and empathy for people need to look out for people who can’t protect themselves. And that’s been another installment of the Karat Juice Podcast. If you enjoyed this episode, in this commentary on this very somber topic that involves such a heinous crime, I’m glad that there is justice coming in this lady is going to be facing life in prison. There’s no coming back from something like this. Because that child never got a chance he never even had a chance. So sad. So if you enjoy this, do me a favor.
