Woman accused of branding child with potato masher

Woman accused of branding child with potato masher

It's one of the worst cases of child abuse Midwest City Police say they've ever seen. A foster mother accused of branding a child all over his body.

Chief Brandon Clabes, Midwest City Police Department, said "You know how painful it is when you just get a minor burn. Can you imagine this poor, little 9 year old being repeatedly branded by a woman who's supposed to be taking care of him & loving him?"

Midwest City Police say the 9-year-old boy suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns from his foster mother as a punishment.

Note: I'll bet his real parents never did anything like that.


  1. That is so terrible! I cant believe anyone could ever do anything like that to a child!

    Why was a 72 year old woman allowed to be a foster parent in the first place??

    It just goes to show you two separate rules by social services. If a 72 year grandmother wanted kinship care of her grandchild she would be denied because of her age.

    Yet, let some professional foster care mother be 72 years old- its okie dokie.
