Noooooo! Woman Secretly Gives Birth at Work, Hides Corpse in Her Desk

Sometimes you think that humanity is at an all time low, and then you see a story like this, when a woman gives birth to her baby in a toilet, suffocates him, and puts him in a desk drawer. Just despicable:[1]

Kimberly Pappas[2]

A 26-year-old woman on Monday expressed her indescribable pain and regret for the death of her newborn son whom she stuffed into a plastic bag after giving birth to him at her suburban Detroit workplace.

Kimberly Pappas was sentenced to 9 to 20 years in prison. The Wyandotte woman earlier pleaded guilty to second-degree murder under an agreement with prosecutors to drop charges including felony murder and child abuse.

At the court hearing on Monday, Pappas thanked her family for their support and expressed her regret for killing her baby.

‘The pain and grief and regret that I have about this really can’t be put in words, and it’s going to be with me for the rest of my life.

‘But I just want to say that I’m sorry and I wish that I would have made the right choices that would have stopped all this and wouldn’t have led me here,’she said.

Police said the baby was discovered on March 31 at Pappas’ desk after his birth in the restroom of business in Wayne County’s Redford Township. At the time, she was working as a temporary employee at CEVA logistics.

An autopsy determined the infant lived for 20 to 30 minutes and died of suffocation. His death was ruled a homicide.

As someone who really wants to have another child, I cannot imagine this mother killing her own baby. It breaks my heart that people like this exist in the world. I can’t say that her punishment fits the crime, because she is allowed to walk freely and her baby never got the chance.

If you are having trouble with a pregnancy, please consider calling the National Adoption Hotline[3]. They can help you find a suitable family for your child.
