7. Adrianna Bradley
On the afternoon of September 23, 2015, while the two babies were playing, eight-month-old Jaxon attempted to stand up but fell over and hit his head on the tile floor. Adrianna looked the child over and did not notice any injuries.
She put him in his playpen and went into the kitchen to prepare his bottle. When she came back into the room, she noticed that Jaxon was not breathing. She called 911 and performed CPR. Jaxon was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
An autopsy found two marks on the back of Jaxon’s head that were 5 centimeters (2 in) apart and 2.5 centimeters (1 in) long. The injuries were inconsistent with Adrianna’s story that the baby fell. The coroner determined that the cause of death was head trauma consistent with being shaken or thrown.
Bradley was arrested and charged with manslaughter and aggravated child abuse. As of February 2016, she is awaiting trial.
