    Child's body found in esky

    AP - A man and woman have been charged with killing a four-year-old girl whose malnourished body was found in a picnic cooler behind their home in western Pennsylvania home, authorities said.
    Kristen Tatar's five kg body was found in the cooler, after police were alerted by social workers who hadn't seen the child since at least June.
    The cause of death was not immediately known, but Armstrong County Coroner Robert Bower said at a news conference that the girl suffered from malnutrition, dehydration and neglect. The body had been put in the cooler, wrapped in garbage bags and then placed in a rubbish can near a shed in the back yard, authorities said.

    4 years old and weighed 11 pounds. What an awful life she must have lived. I am actually glad for her that it is over, no more misery, no more pain or deprivation.

    I would be curious to know the parents religious thinking about a child with medical problems; and also about the parents mental status and IQ's.
    Not that any of this would condone any of this, but it would be very interesting!

    That's a darn shame about that precious little girl. You know the old saying....Some people shouldn't be allowed to breed. Those parents should be done in the same way!

    Why does all this weird stuff happen in Pennsylvania??? I'm waiting for my neighbors from hell to do something weird so they can make the news media.

    This is so sad, it makes me feel like crying. I look at my kids (who have been driving me crazy today!) and simply cannot understand how anyone could do that to ANY child, especially their own.

    The only comfort I can find in this is that this precious child will not suffer another second!

    Cannot add a thing but allow the tears to flow freely for this poor, little soul.
