Joshua Marbury and Alicia Quinney desperatley needed a date night to themselves, after giving birth to their 1-year-old son Jacob. They left their baby boy with a close family friend, confident he would keep him safe for the night.
What Happened To The Baby?
Well, when they came back home and noticed that Jacob was on the floor crying all by himself. He also had injuries to his face. After finding out that the babysitter actually HIT baby Jacob multiple times, father Josh went to his Facebook page pleading for help. He also talked to the baby sitter but the matter was dismissed. Please help spread this story, as the family is still waiting for their sons attacker to be arrested.
His Facebook post was:-
I normally keep my matters with family very private cause i dont need the attention. But this is different. Because TWO months ago my 1 year old son was smacked across the right side of his face by our babysitter. I’ll keep this person anonymous. He was smacked to the point where MULTIPLE doctors and the detective said it could have killed him. They also showed us hand prints. After several days if not week of being distracted at my job (only commission sales job and only source of income) we had a confession from the abuser saying they did it. STILL this person is not arrested because we have to build a case and a jury to find him guilty BEFORE they go to jail. Side note if im not mistaken (if i strike a person in the face and the cops were called i would be put in hand cuffs immediately). After TWO months of waiting we only find out that charges are dropped BECAUSE my one year old cannot tell you verbally he was abused and my son did not show he was in pain OR that this person “intentionally” did this. I am SO furious that im not using profanity HOPING something is done and this goes viral. I did my part with GOD and your “advise” to not recourse to my own action with revenge. DO YOUR PART, you have a verbal confession and evidence showing a hand print!!!! A dead body cant tell you who killed them because it cannot speak. Yet a baby isnt held to the same standard because he cant talk???? Well neither can a dead body. THATS BLASPHEMY. You waited 2 months if not longer to tell us this???? Something needs to be done. NOBODY can just hit a child and more to just get away with it because the child cant verbally tell you. Your help is appreciated in the portland area if we can share or tag news and or local papers etc. Alicia Quinney
