14 Year Old Teen Charged In Death of Her Infant Son

On Wednesday, September 19, 2012, Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies, along with members of the Department of Children and Families, responded to the Lakeland Regional Medical Center after medical staff reported treating 14-year-old Cassidy Goodson, DOB 11/27/1997, 7078 Greenbrier Village Drive, Lakeland, for what was reported to be a miscarriage. The initial investigative information was forwarded to the PCSO Bureau of Criminal Investigations for investigative follow-up.

At approximately 9:30 pm on Saturday, September 22, 2012, the PCSO received a call advising a full term baby had been located inside a shoebox with soiled clothing at Goodson’s Greenbrier Village residence.

Teresa Goodson, Cassidy’s mother, had been collecting dirty laundry when she smelled an odor in Cassidy’s room. She collected soiled items from the room and found the deceased newborn among the laundry items. Homicide detectives responded to the residence.

Cassidy told detectives she began to feel ill on Monday, September 17, 2012, and that the discomfort continued through Wednesday. Sometime between 7:00 am and 10:00 am, Wednesday, September 19, 2012, Cassidy went into the bathroom and went into labor. Realizing she was delivering, she placed a towel in her mouth and turned on the bathroom water to conceal any noise she might make during the delivery.

As the pain of labor increased, Cassidy took a pair of scissors to “pry the baby out.” The infant, a 9.5 pound, 20.4 inch boy, delivered alive and into the toilet. Cassidy lifted the moving infant from the toilet, felt for a pulse, found one, then placed her hands around the infant’s neck and squeezed until he wasn’t moving or breathing any longer. She took the infant’s pulse again and found none.

Cassidy then began to clean up the bathroom, bathing herself and the dead infant before placing him in a shoebox along with soiled towels and clothing.

Detectives learned the teen, who weighs 100 pounds and is approximately 5’3” tall, had been attempting to conceal her pregnancy from her family by wearing baggy clothing for the past several months.

Some members of the family suspected the teen was pregnant and counseled Teresa Goodson regarding the teen’s changing appearance. During this time, Mrs. Goodson denied her daughter’s pregnancy advising family members that two home pregnancy tests were administered and showed no positive result. Both tests were conducted by the teen, alone and in private, with no parent present in the room at the time, because Mrs. Goodson wanted to protect her daughter’s privacy.

An autopsy performed determined the victim was a full term infant and that he was alive and breathing prior to death. The cause of death was a result of asphyxia from strangulation and blunt force trauma.

Cassidy told detectives she choked the baby to “stop him from breathing.” Cassidy Goodson is charged with Premeditated First Degree Murder, (Capital Felony) and Aggravated Child Abuse, (First Degree Felony.)

Cassidy was arrested late Thursday, September 27, 2012. She was medically screened and cleared prior to being arrested and transported initially to the Juvenile Assessment Center, then transferred to the Polk County Juvenile Detention Facility.

The investigation in on-going.

(Goodson committed Felony Capital Murder, and Felony Child Abuse. The facts of the case are devastating. There are no winners.

Under Florida State Statute 119, even though the suspect is a juvenile, all suspect information is a matter of public record – the law requires the release of all information.


My thoughts on this …

Yes she is a 14 year old kid but she knew enough to obviously fake taking two pregnancy test, cover herself up with baggy clothes to conceal her pregnancy, realize she was going into labor, stuff a towel in her mouth to muffle screams (I know grown women who scream bloody murder during labor, to not scream out had to take fierce determination IMO, esp considering the baby was 9.5 pounds and 20.4 inches long and she was only 100 pounds and 5’3), Pry the baby out with scissors/deliver a BABY in the BATHROOM, check for a pulse to see if the baby was breathing, choke the baby once she confirmed he was breathing, check for another pulse to ensure that the strangulation did the job, then clean up as if nothing happened.

Sorry but fear or not, this kid deserves punishment. I am not sure she deserves to spend the rest of her life in jail but she deserves some time. She killed an innocent baby all because she didn’t want it and/or out of shame. There was no shame for the sexual act that created the baby (Assuming the sex that created this baby was consensual). Also, the parents are to blame. If you suspect that your kid might be hiding a pregnancy from you, why would you allow her to take the test alone? That’s like giving a take home drug test to a suspected crack head and then believing that he used his own piss when he passes the DT. Seriously, it’s not going to happen…. This is an unfortunate situation for all parties involved.

How to Spot a Republican

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

“She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be an Obama Democrat.”

“I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Republican.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

“Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”

How to spot a Republican?

This list will be updated continuously mostly for my own personal amusement.

I can usually spot a republican by some of these key terms/actions:

  • “We just need to pray for our leaders and pray that they are making the right decisions”
  • “It is my duty as a Christian…..”
  • “The Bible says its a sin….” < – This one really ticks me off. Picking and choosing what is right or wrong and blaming it on Jesus gives Christianity a bad name!
  • “Barack Hussein Obama”

I’m just a Liberal girl in a Republican World

So I’m proud to be a liberal and all but let me tell you, in the South’ it ain’t easy….but I’m down for my cause.

Living in Tennessee as a Liberal has got to be the closest form of racism [or something similar rather] that I’ve personally experienced. I say that because of the separation it can create among you and your friends/family is pretty hostile at times. The Glen Beckians all “assume” that you are with them and have their views and even if they know you don’t, they’ll continusly try to push those views on you. Um, no thanks, I can actually think for myself. I don’t need Fox JOKE  News, Glen “fat ass” Beck, or Rush “I sound like a PIG when I breath” Limbaugh to tell me what to think and believe.

I would not have such a bad taste in my mouth for conservatives/republicans IF they did not fight so dirty. They have no tact about themselves. They use fear to promote their personal agendas and to spread lies. The hate towards Obama is pretty sad to watch. I almost hate that I voted this guy into the White House to be abused and disrespected so much. I think I speak for the masses when I say, I’ve NEVER seen a President so openly disrespected by both Americans and his peers and my friends I think it boils down to the color of his skin.

I’m a pretty open minded chick but even I am starting to believe that a lot of Obama’s issues are made worse because of his race. I’ve been fighting the battle saying that was not the case since he was elected but I fear I’ve lost. It’s been pretty obvious for a while but I like to “think” that as a country, we are far past racism [See Fox News lovers, that’s me THINKING ON MY OWN]. <— Grudgingly, I admit that’s me living in my perfect little bubble pretending that color is still not an issue. I think it’s a pretty good thought process to have but sadly, very far from the reality of our situation.

As an American, you have to realize that Obama walked into a mess. Any President, Democrat or Republican alike would have walked into this mess but because Obama did, the situation is more dire in some peoples eyes. *cough, racist teabaggers* The difference between US and them is they would raise taxes on middle class and poor people without losing an ounce of sleep at night. Yet this is who you idiots want in office? I have asked myself why so much, I’m starting to hate the word.

So I ask myself, what’s up with all these poor ass people supporting Republican candidates? Don’t they realize that they will be among those most impacted if the Bachmans and Perrys take over the Oval Office? Something is seriously wrong here. I remember being 19 and talking to a guy who was always broke but HELL NO, he wouldn’t vote for a Democrat to save his life. He voted for the “Bush” and was bankrupt a couple years later. Silly isn’t it? I could go on and on but I’m done.

Oh well… Thanks for listening to me rant and rave in my first official blog post. Good day to you all, conservatives included! 😀
