A story about a 13 year old girl who died after being dropped off with no pulse at a hospital by an unidentified 40 something year old man in Lawrence has been making headlines, but something doesn’t smell right.
The family of a 13-year-old Amesbury girl who died after being dropped off at Lawrence General Hospital on Monday is demanding answers as authorities continue to investigate her death. Chloe Richard was pronounced dead after a man dropped her off at the hospital’s emergency room just before 5 p.m., law enforcement sources told 7’s Steve Cooper. She had gone into cardiac arrest. That man has since been located but no arrests have been made in connection with her death.
Richard ran away from her home on Sunday night but family members say her friends told them that she was doing OK. Richard’s stepfather, Brian Dolan, says his heart broke when he was called to the hospital to identify his stepdaughter.
“It had to be one of the hardest things that I had to do in my life,” Dolan said as he fought back tears. “I’m beside myself. This shouldn’t have happened. This kid was 13 years old.”
Richard’s death is being investigated by the Essex District Attorney’s Office, the Lawrence Police Department, and the Essex State Police Detective Unit. The cause and manner of her death have not been released. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is performing an autopsy on Tuesday. The individual who dropped off the girl alerted hospital staff that she was in need of help before driving off, according to the DA’s office.
“If it was your kid, what would you do?” a frustrated Dolan asked. “If it was your mother, your daughter, your son, your brother, or any one of them. What would you do?”
“The only thing I was told earlier from another agency is … someone 47 years old dropped her off,” the distraught stepdad told the station. “Whoever did this to my little stepdaughter, trust me, I hope there’s hell to pay because they threw her out of the car like a bag of trash. If that was your kid, if that was your sister, if that was your brother, or your mother, or your father, what would you do? I’m beside myself.”
Chloe’s mother, Deborah Goldsmith-Dolan, told the paper that her daughter was at a friend’s house the day before. She called the friend, who said the girl was safe.
But by late Monday afternoon, she started to worry when she still hadn’t heard from her daughter — and filed a missing person’s report at the police station. Again, she was misled.
“I’m sitting at the police station, and one girl told me she is safe and someone dropped her off,” Goldsmith-Dolan said.
Tragic story obviously, but something doesn’t smell right here. The kid “ran away” from home on Sunday. Did Mom and Dad file a police report that night? Nope. If my 13 year old kid “runs away” then I get in my car and find her. If I don’t find her within an hour then I’m at the police station and they immediately put out a statement about a lost child.
There was school on Monday morning. What kind of parent goes to bed on a Sunday night knowing their daughter is not under their roof? What plans were made for her to go to school the next day? What provisions did she have? Your kid is supposed to be your life, and Mom and step-Dad were basically like, “she’ll be fine.” This is what we’re dealing with here:
Someone who knew Chloe Ricard posted this on Facebook:
That led to this response:
“I just wish she had been saved when she was screaming for help but was put right back in the same situation. The system is messed up.”
Interesting. But even more telling was Mom’s ratchet response:
“She was at a friend’s house safe.”
Yea, real safe for sure.
“Keep your cunt mouth shut.”
“u poor white psycho bitch”
“fuck off you piece of shit heroin addict”
She sure sounds like a grieving mother.
Then there was this post from the woman who was told to shut her cunt mouth:
What appears to be the same woman with a different account then posted this underneath, accusing Mom of “doing” crack around Chloe, and blamed the step-Dad for being the guy who caused so many issues for Chloe. She also alleged that Chloe has gotten her stomach pumped, Mom pops pills, and Chloe was raised at her grandparent’s house.
Now I don’t know any of these women so I have no way to verify any of this. However, when Mom signed into her DEAD DAUGHTER’S FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and wrote this:
It became a lot clearer how this child could run away from home on a Sunday and was not be reported missing that night.
Just take a look at Chloe’s Facebook page and you’ll see how shitty these parents were really were.
This is her cover photo:
If my daughter posted a picture of some thirsty looking Chester, covered in tattooes while holding a freaking MAGNUM condom, she gets locked in her room until she turns 18. And if she runs away from home, I immediately assume she’s going to see whoever the hell that skud fuck is. She was dropped off dead at the hospital by a guy in her 40’s. And Mom and Dad have NO IDEA who this guy could possibly be? If this girl had real parents that actually cared about and loved her she’d be alive right now.
More people began posting, echoing the same things that were initially posted about Mom.
Another woman says that Chloe’s older brother Kyle lived with her for 5 years and raised him.
When Clarence asked her why she didn’t call the police on Sunday when her daughter ran away from home she told him to come to Amesbury to talk face to face, and claimed that she didn’t disappear Sunday night.
She then showed that showed that she was a guttermuppet caboose by telling Clarence to get his “FAX” straight.
And you know how we love it when people tell us to get our FAX straight. Here’s some FAX – Chloe ran way on Sunday according to every news outlet that has written about this:
Richard ran away from her home on Sunday night but family members say her friends told them that she was doing OK.
And despite her daughter previously getting her stomach pumped, hanging out with questionable people, and clearly having issues with substance abuse, they trusted that whoever she was with would make sure she got up and went to school the next morning. Awesome parenting.
I understand it hurts to lose a child, but this child is dead because Mom wasn’t there for her. But she sure is sharing that GoFundMe.
Meanwhile Dad is all over the news crying up a storm, and acting like a tough guy on Facebook.
Imagine your kid dies and you feel the need to go on Facebook and brag about how you’re gonna kick the guy’s ass who dropped her off dead at the hospital. Imagine how much of a trashbag you have to be to do something like that.
They didn’t report her missing until Monday afternoon. What was Dad doing in the morning?
Posting Bruins memes and muscle car posts. He seemed really concerned that his 13 year old daughter never made it home that night.
Then he did this:
That seems like a normal thing to post for a person who doesn’t have a past that was quickly being made public on social media.
The bottom line is that this story is a tragedy because this was a girl whose father died when she was 8. Mom chose new dick over the best interests of her child, who she then neglected and may or may not have done drugs around, and when her daughter ran away from home Mom did nothing to make sure she came back that night. Now that the girl is dead Mom and Dad are pretending to be loving and caring parents, but if they really cared they would’ve intervened a long, long time ago.
