2 YEAR OLD BABY GIRL WAS BEATEN AND STARVED BECAUSE ASHLEY COLLIER WAS FRUSTRATED ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF MARIJUANA – UPDATED 08.29.2013 – CCA0038

2 YEAR OLD BABY GIRL WAS BEATEN AND STARVED BECAUSE ASHLEY COLLIER WAS FRUSTRATED ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF MARIJUANA

9There is not much information out there about this case and the child’s name is not known, but what is known is very troubling.

A two year old baby girl was brought to a hospital outside of St. Petersburg, Florida, where the she was found to have extensive injuries that were indicative of horrendous child abuse.  The baby had blistering on her tongue and cracked lips, which are both symptoms of severe dehydration and malnutrition.  Her injuries also included a broken left tibia and numerous bruises with swelling all over her body, including her head.  Doctors have said that some of the injuries are so serious, they may very well cause permanent disabilities for the child.

When Ashley Collier was questioned about the child’s injuries, she initially said the toddler fell down the stairs, but later admitted she pushed her down the stairs herself.  She also admitted to striking the child in the head and the face prior to pushing her down the stairs.  She then proceeded to starve the baby girl.

The reason for the abuse?  Well, Collier was frustrated, frustrated because she ran out of marijuana.  Uhhh yeah, that’s a new one for sure.

Ashley Collier (it is uncertain whether she is the girl’s mother or not), 26, was arrested and booked into the Pasco County Jail on a charge of child abuse and aggravated battery causing a permanent disability and was held on a $150,000.00 bail.

When Collier was arrested, she became very upset and said the injuries were all the baby’s fault.

I still say if we sentenced these monsters to endure the same abuse and torture their victims were forced to endure at their hands, crimes against children would go down.  And hell, let’s say maybe they wouldn’t really go down that much, well at least we would be a LOT closer to getting justice for these victims than we have ever come.
