And The ‘Worst Parents Of The Year’ Award Goes To…

Police were called by suspicious hospital staff after a 4-week-old infant was brought in unresponsive. The parents told the hospital that they woke up and found their baby that way but staffers weren’t convinced by their story and given the following details, it’s easy to see why.

The baby, who was not identified, was brought to a children’s hospital in Georgia where toxicology tests would reveal the baby had a blood alcohol level 4 times the legal limit for an adult. When questioned, the mother Sydnei Moran Dunn, claimed she was drinking the night before and claimed the alcohol transferred from her breast milk.

Police knew this wasn’t possible and continued their investigation. Sadly, the baby did not survive the ordeal and on the second day of treatment, died from the horrible damage the alcohol had caused.

Police returned to speak with the mother following the baby’s death and it’s then that she claimed that the baby’s father Marquis Simon Colvin, put alcohol in the baby’s bottle.

The couple was arrested and the Sheriffs office included their findings in a publically released report:

“During the evening of April 13, 2022, Detectives executed a search warrant at 51 Hillcrest Drive Hiram, GA 30141 (Hillcrest Subdivision) which is where the parents of the child live in a basement apartment. During the course of the search warrant, Detectives located evidence of the crime as well as a firearm. Colvin, who is a convicted felon, is not allowed to be in close proximity or possess a firearm.

On April 14, 2022, hospital officials indicated that the child had passed away as a result of its condition. Doctors further advised that the child had a quantity of alcohol in its system that was well over four times the legal limit for an adult. As a result of the search warrant, combined with the interviews of Dunn and Colvin, both individuals were placed under arrest without incident…”

A local report showed footage of the officers carrying out the infant’s bassinet:
