5. Cody Feran-Baum
Realizing what he had done, he took Sophia next door to borrow a phone. The neighbor called 911 and performed CPR on the child until paramedics arrived. Cody told first responders that Sophia had fallen in the tub.
The little girl was rushed to hospital where she later died. She had severe injuries, including rib fractures, liver damage, and a collapsed lung. Doctors noted that some of her injuries were fresh while others were beginning to heal, an indication that this was not the first time that Sophia had been abused. Her injuries were also inconsistent with a fall.
Eventually, Feran-Baum pled guilty to second-degree unintentional murder. Due to the especially heinous nature of the crime, the teen was sentenced as an adult, receiving 25 years in prison.
