WILLIAM BRYANT’S MOTHER, TAMECA BRYANT, BEAT HIM WITH A CAST IRON SKILLET – UPDATED 09.11.2013 – CCA0053

WILLIAM BRYANT’S MOTHER, TAMECA BRYANT, BEAT HIM WITH A CAST IRON SKILLET

14Tameca Bryant waited more than 24 hours to take her 23 month old son, William Bryant, to the hospital after beating him with a cast iron skillet, leaving him with potentially fatal injuries.  The little boy was taken to Leboheaur Hospital with a plethora of injuries, including bruising and cuts on his entire body, a fractured skull, a broken arm and a subdural hematoma.  After giving various stories and excuses for her son’s injuries, including claiming that William fell off a 5 inch concrete step, and then claiming he hurt himself while playing with a toy truck (uhhhh … WHAT? WOW).  Bryant finally admitted to hitting her son with the skillet, however she did not give a reason as to why she did so and authorities do not believe that drugs or alcohol played a factor in the abuse.

Bryant was arrested and charged with first degree domestic assault, armed criminal action, and felony endangering the welfare of a child. Shockingly, her arrest came one month after the incident occurred, leaving some wondering why it took a month to arrest her. It turns out that there was already an open investigation stemming from multiple reports that Bryant was abusing and neglecting William over the 30 days prior to her beating him with the skillet, which then caused investigators to take some extra time to investigate the case as a whole.  She is currently being held at the Dunklin County Detention Center on a $100,000.00 cash bond.

William was released from the hospital and placed into state care.
