At some point in her life, Mona Walker decided to enter the childcare profession.
Childcare workers, tasked with ensuring that the next generation is still alive when the world has need of them, sometimes face a tough job. Children can be frighteningly frustrating at times, an aspect of the profession which some childcare workers deal with well.
Then you have Mona Walker.
Mona Walker was hired by Jared Wentz and his wife Emily Wentz in the early months of 2008. Mona was hired to watch Jared and Emily’s 3-month-old daughter, Lauren Wentz. Jared and Emily Wentz believed that Mona Walker was a good person and a perfectly fine babysitter because she had watched Jared Wentz’s sister’s children for more than 6 months.
Mona Walker was having an especially frustrating day on the 26th of March, 2008. Three children can be a handful – she was watching two little boys as well as the 3-month-old.
Ten minutes after being left with the children, Mona Walker had to deal with the fact that baby Lauren was unhappy and crying.
Lauren Wentz cried and cried and Mona tried everything she could to quiet the little girl.
She fed the baby.
She changed the baby.
She walked with the baby.
The tension built up behind Mona Walker’s thick skull until she came to the conclusion that there was only one thing left to do.
Fight the baby.
While carrying this little girl pictured here to the left, Mona Walker took the opportunity to perform a strategically sound attack on the 15-pound pre-human, punching the infant – as hard as she could – twice in the face.
The fight was on.
The baby responded to this merciless attack by feeling pain and crying heavily.
Being poorly trained in Mixed Martial Arts techniques, Lauren Wentz failed to capitalize on Mona Walker’s position change and weight shift. Lauren paid for her inexperience when the large babysitter swung the infant head-first into a convenient door.
Mona Walker, realizing that her opponent had lost the will to fight further, made a humanitarian gesture. Twelve minutes after being left alone with the Wentz children, Mona Walker called 911 herself rather than waiting for the Wentz family to get home and making them do it themselves.
Police and emergency crews arrived and Lauren was rushed to the emergency room in critical condition.
Mona Walker informed the curious police officers that she had dropped the 3-month-old after tripping over an ottoman.
After all, the number one rule about Fight Club is…you don’t talk about Fight Club.
Police didn’t completely believe her story, however, and after later questioning, Mona Walker admitted that she and Lauren Wentz had gotten into a fight and that Lauren had lost.
Lauren, who was seriously injured from her fight, had several fractures to her skull and a little brain damage. She was kept in a chemically-induced coma for a while. Hospitalized for months, specialists who deal with therapy for infants and the very young worked with the infant girl extensively in an attempt to foster something along the lines of normal infant development.
According to doctors, however, Lauren Wentz will probably never be the normal child that she otherwise would have been had she not stepped into hand-to-hand combat with her babysitter.
Jared and Emily Wentz are still hopeful for their little girl’s future. Lauren has just started smiling again and has rolled over a few times.
Mona Walker pled no contest to felony child abuse on the 19th of September, 2008. She will be sentenced on the 19th of November. According to the county attorney, she could receive a prison sentence that ranges from one to 20 years.
