Diana Jean Wimmer - Mom Leaves Baby And Toddler Alone While Visiting A Friend. Caught Fibbing To Police Over How Long She Was Gone
Diana Wimmer Arrest Report
Kenneth City, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Diana Jean Wimmer, a 24 year old Kenneth City, Florida woman was arrested and charged with felony child neglect after police say she locked a baby and a toddler alone in her apartment while going to visit a friend.
Police were called around 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday after neighbors complained that Wimmer's one-year-old and three-year-old child had been left alone, locked inside Wimmer's apartment. When police arrived, they waited outside the locked apartment for another 30 minutes while hearing the two children crying and screaming inside.
"The baby was crying nonstop and couldn't be calmed down," said Sgt. Kevin Matson. "The little girl saw the uniform, calmed down and opened the door.'
When the mother finally showed up, she told police that she had been gone for only 10 or 15 minutes. Police dismissed that claim and estimated the time to be closer to an hour and a half.
Investigators say Wimmer told them she had left to talk to the children's father who resides in another unit of the apartment complex.
The children were left in the custody of their father who is now under investigation as well.
Wimmer was booked into the Pinellas County jail on a felony charge of neglect of a child. She was released around noon on Wednesday after posting a $2,000 bond.
