ANDREI BLAKESLEY ABUSED HIS 3 MONTH OLD SON SO SEVERELY, THE INFANT REQUIRED BRAIN SURGERY – CCA0164 – UPDATED 10.14.2014
ANDREI BLAKESLEY ABUSED HIS 3 MONTH OLD SON SO SEVERELY, THE INFANT REQUIRED BRAIN SURGERY
Andrei J Blakesley never deserved to even breathe the same air as his son. In June, the 3 MONTH old baby boy was brought to the hospital with severe injuries. He had a bloody nose, swollen eyes and bruises to his face. He was also vomiting uncontrollably, and this, was only the tip of the iceberg. Medical staff found that the tiny little baby was also suffering from retinal damage so severe, that the baby may be blind and two brain hemorrhages which could lead to permanent developmental disabilities, such as cerebral palsy. In reality, the extent of damage will not be known for several years as the child grows. The thing that hurts me the most, is that one of the brain bleeds discovered was 3 weeks old. This brain bleed actually required the baby boy to undergo neurosurgery. This perfect little boy began to be abused far before he was taken to the hospital, and when you are three months old and only know abuse and pain, it is overwhelmingly heartbreaking.
Doctors say that the injuries the little man suffered indicated a pattern of abuse consistent with shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma.
When asked what the hell happened to his son, Blakesley gave conflicting stories as to how his son received such massive injuries.
He first claimed that he propped the infant up on the couch with a bottle and took a shower (3 month old baby boy propped up with a bottle????). He says that when he got out of the shower, he found the baby had bruises, a puffy lip and a bloody nose. (WTF? He claimed this as though it is normal to find a baby suddenly battered and beaten!) When Blakelsey discovered his son’s injuries, instead of getting the 3 month old baby boy medical attention, hell instead of even wiping the blood from the baby’s face, he sat around on his lazy, worthless ass and played video games for a couple of hours until the baby’s mother, his fiancée, returned home from work. The mother told police that she did not notice any bruising to her son’s face until later in the day, conflicting with what Blakesley said happened. So he moved onto his next story. He told police that he dropped the infant on the floor when he tripped over his 20 month old son, but then said he tried to drop the baby on the couch after tripping. He stated that the infant may have hit a hard part of the sofa, and he ended up bouncing off the couch, landing on the floor on his face, which is how he obtained the bloody nose. Doctors confirmed that the extent and type of injuries that baby was suffering from, would not have occurred how Blakesley claims they did.
After being questioned by police the first time, Blakesley’s mother hired him an attorney, and he stopped speaking with police. Which is good, because I am about to lose my shit if I have to hear another excuse from this idiot’s mouth.
Blakesley was originally jailed with felony charges of neglect of a dependant resulting in serious bodily injury and battering causing serious bodily injury to a victim less than 14 years old. He was able to post the $10,000 bail (Mommy was), and he was released from prison. We will be watching this case closely as the trial approaches and will be posting any new information as it is released.
LTWH Family Member, Hannah, sent me this case a little while ago and asked that we look into. Hannah – sorry for the delay! Thank you for being this little man’s Angel Advocate! Without people such as yourself, those who need it most, may never find their voice.
