TRAGEDY! Boy FINALLY Finds His Forever Family…Then His New Mom Does The UNSPEAKABLE, And Now

At Right Wing News, we’re huge fans of adoption, in a number of contexts; we’d like to see a large-scale national emphasis on adoption as an alternative to abortion, but we’re huge fans of adoptive parents taking in kids who’ve had it rough and need the love and guidance responsible adults can provide.

Unfortunately, though, sometimes it goes wrong. Sometimes it goes terribly wrong.

Police say a woman in Northern California faces a murder charge after confessing she drowned her 12-year-old son in a bathtub.

The San Jose Mercury News reports Tara McNeill Palajac was arraigned in the January 8 death of her adopted son at their Santa Clara home.

Police say Palajac initially said the boy had accidentally drowned but later confessed under police interrogation.

According to court documents the child was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead about two hours later.

Palajac reportedly told officers that she was home alone with the boy when she found him in the bathtub partially floating face up in the water.

Police say that detectives conducted a lengthy follow-up interview with Palajac three days later and she reportedly admitted that she held the child under water ‘until he was lifeless’.

Exactly what happened to make this woman so unhinged as to drown a 12-year old boy in a bathtub is a good question. It’s just an incredibly sad story.
