Four year old Austin James Watkins never stood a chance in hell of having a normal, happy childhood. Momma, Tammy Watkins, was a drug addict and daddy, Scott Watkins, was serving time for statutory rape. There really wasn’t anyone to give Austin and his three siblings the time and care they needed.
So the Mississippi Department of Human Services stepped up to the plate in 2005 and removed him from his mothers home and placed him in the care of his grandmother, Janice Mowdy, 43 and his Aunt, Stephanie Bell, 22.
What should have been a fresh start and a better life for Austin was anything but.
Mowdy took an instant dislike to Austin, claiming that she did not believe him to be her son’s child. And for this supposed crime, she set about destroying little Austin.
“Oh what a tangled web we weave…”
I’m sure most people have heard the saying. Pity Claire Jones, 32 of Wales didn’t heed the advice.
Claire was pregnant. She couldn’t tell her partner of eleven years as the baby was not his.
So she lied and lied and lied some more.
Claire had been having an affair with a man she had met through work and soon fell pregnant. The 32 year old laboratory technician explained her sudden weight gain to her partner David Stoneman as bloating brought on by a wheat allergy. Meanwhile she admitted to her lover, Marco Bezerra that she was pregnant and would leave Stoneman to set up house with him and they would raise their child together. She also told him she had cancer.
We here at PYSIH would like to thank you for reading. We hope you and your family have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
We also hope that you don’t go insane and cut your baby into tiny little baby bits, or set your grandmother on fire, or sell your wife’s body parts without her permission- but we’re sure that it’s going on out there somewhere.
Special thanks to Max the Cat and our writers, without whom PYSIH would not be updated nearly as frequently.
I sat here at my computer for a very long time trying to think of some way to lead into this story. Some witty, sarcastic opening to get your, the readers’, attention. But I just can’t think of anything other than the absolute horror of the following tale of one beautiful, happy, much loved child’s shocking demise.
Read on only if you are brave, and I warn you some of the photos will move you to tears or acts of rage. (I almost threw my laptop.)
This happy looking little man is three year old Ngatikuara Ngati.
Every night he would climb into bed and tell his adoptive parents Kura and Finau that he loved them before clasping his little hands together to say a prayer before falling asleep in a house filled with love and security.
We all have faced rejection. Each of us deals with it in a different way. Some people cry, some eat, and some people just decide to try to set their loved ones on fire at their place of work.
Oh wait, sane people wouldn’t do that last one.
Well Roger Hargrave, proved that he was not one of the sane people. On October 10, 2005, Mr. Hargrave walked into the T-Mobile Store in Clinton, MD and poured gasoline on his wife, Yvette Cade, and in that oh so tender loving moment, chased her out of the store where he then set her on fire.
Now since we’re all aficionados of crime and criminals boys and girls, lets take a look at some of the more conventional ways of murder:
I’d like to introduce you to Christopher Robertson.
Christopher Robertson is a 41 year old professional criminal and crackhead.
I’ve known a lot of crackheads in my days. Being a recovering drug addict, and spending time in numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, as well as a Sober Living House or two, I’ve run across my share of those little vermin.
I’m gonna let you in on a little secret folks; just about every other type of junkie doesn’t think much of crackheads. There’s something about that God damn drug that gets ahold of you and once its got you, it’s as hard as anything I’ve every seen to get away from. I never messed with it, and I thank God for that, because there was a time when I truly believed crack came to the Earth from the Devil himself, and I could bring you 1000 guys I knew who would tell you the same thing.
LOS ANGELES — A jury has convicted a Missouri mother of lesser, misdemeanor crimes in the MySpace cyber-bullying case linked to a 13-year-old girl’s suicide.
The Los Angeles federal court jury this afternoon rejected felony charges of accessing a computer without authorization to inflict emotional distress on young Megan Meier.
However, the jury found defendant Lori Drew guilty of three counts of the lesser offense of accessing a computer without authorization.
The jurors could not reach a verdict on a conspiracy count.
Prosecutors said Drew violated the MySpace terms of service by conspiring with her young daughter and a business assistant to create a fictitious profile of a teen boy on the MySpace social networking site to harass Megan.

You know how it is when you’re hanging out with your buddies, having a few drinks and a few laughs. You crack a few lame jokes and pull a few party tricks out of your hat. Some of the old favorites are “The Blue Flame” and “Spin the Bottle” or better yet “Shove the Baby in the Clothes Dryer until She Bleeds from the Head.” Oh and what about the one where you lift the baby up high and then drop her to the ground????
What’s that you say? You have never played that one? Not ever?
