Responders found the baby with a temperature of 106 degrees, documents said, and she had insects flying from her eyes, nose and mouth. The baby was pronounced dead at the scene, the police said, and her cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner’s office. According to documents, it appeared that the baby girl and McCullough’s two other children, ages 2 and 5, were in the car while McCullough, 30, worked at his father’s restaurant. Police say the father said that he had sent his son home on previous occasions when he tried to leave the children in the car while he worked. McCullough’s father told police he had no idea the children were in the car, according to an affidavit of complaint.
Police said the other two children appeared to have been neglected and were in need of medical attention and were taken to a hospital. Child protective services “will take custody of those children once they are medically cleared,” the police said. An affidavit of complaint against McCullough claims he “knowingly and willfully left the victims inside the vehicle exposing them to extreme heat for hours.” He was arrested and charged with criminal homicide and three counts of aggravated child neglect. The children’s mother, Jessica Tollett, 24, was also arrested, charged with three counts of aggravated child abuse/neglect after the baby’s death.
We are now in the heat of the summer, and there are many brain damaged parents that still think it is fine and dandy to leave their kids in a hot car. These two dumpster muppets left their 11-month old child, along with two other children, in a scorching hot car so the father could work. This is another prime example that parents should have an IQ test before they have a child. In case you need any more assurance, we are not exactly dealing with someone who is an Ivy League graduate:
As you could probably tell from the last post, he has been in jail before for child abuse. Here is an old mug shot of this slime ball from a 2012 child abuse arrest:
TFP: McCullough, 30, was jailed on a $1 million bond Sunday, charged with criminal homicide and three counts of aggravated child neglect. Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office records show he also was charged with child abuse/neglect in 2012, and with drug- and weapons- related charges in 2007. Tollett, 24, was charged with three counts of aggravated child abuse/neglect. She was also charged in 2012 for child abuse and neglect.
I guess they were the perfect couple for each other, both repeat abusers who come from the sewer of society. Who would guess that a child abuser would have repeat actions? I honestly can’t believe the kids were able to stay with them, even though they are both documented child abusers, this is on you Tennessee.
Don’t you think after not 1, but 2 crimes that the state would take the children away? The more these stories come out it seems like they get more gut wrenching. The children of course do not ask for this, they are forced to live with bottom of the barrel parents and end up paying the ultimate price.
Thankfully, these idiots will be behind bars for a while and the other two kids are permanently out of their care. McCoullough, will be held on a $1 million dollar bond, while Tollett will be held on a $300,000 bond. Law enforcement certainly did not “paly gams” now, McCoullough & Tollett will need a whole lot of this to get out:
I’m sure there will be a flurry of “free my boi!” posts in the coming weeks.
