Carrie Noe's MySpace Profile (scrapped as of 12/31)
Salem, Oregon (The Weekly Vice) -- Carrie Noe, a 19-year-old Salem Oregon woman was arrested Friday after police say she murdered her two-month-old son, Ian Noe.
According to Salem police, authorities responded Friday to a 911 call from a home near the 1000 block of Fabry Road Southeast to find an unresponsive child.
When paramedics arrived, they found Noe and her husband sitting on a sofa, holding their deceased child's body. Efforts to revive the 2-month-old were unsuccessful, according to Salem Police Lt. Steve Birr.
Carrie Noe allegedly told police that she was painting a room alone, when the child began crying. After about 15 minutes of crying, Noe told investigators she went into the baby's room frustrated, picked the child up out of his crib, shook him three times and then set him back into the crib in a forceful manner, according to the arrest affidavit.
Noe allegedly told investigators that after the child had been shaken, his body went limp and he began breathing in a labored manor. She allegedly did not call for help or check on the child again until her husband came home later that day. Noe's husband, has not been charged in the case.
Police arrested Noe on a charge of murder and booked her into the Marion County Jail where she is currently being held without bail.
During Noe's initial court appearance, she was described as calm with a slight frown as she answered the judge's questions. Her next appearance has been scheduled for Jan 9.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
How does one let a child scream for 15 minutes, and then go in to shake the life out of him.....only to ignore him when his little body goes limp?
I have been holding this story back for a couple of days - wanting to make sure there was a case of death by abuse before posting it. Sadly enough, Noe's alleged admissions establish that to be the case here.
Letting a child die alone, as you walk off annoyed.... That's as cold blooded as any other murder in our book.
