Erica Kelly Left A Baby To Die In A Trash Pile - Boyfriend’s Family Say They Never Noticed She Was Pregnant. Blame Affair


Waxhaw, North Carolina (The Weekly Vice) -- Erica Denise Kelly, a 22-year-old North Carolina woman was arrested Thursday afternoon after authorities say she delivered a live baby and left it to die in a trash pile.

Kelly was arrested at her job at Gus Family Restaurant after police identified her as the mother of a newborn that was abandoned by a trash pile in February. Union County Medical Examiners say the infant, a baby girl, was born alive at the conclusion of a full-term pregnancy.

Investigators believe the infant survived for about 48 hours after the delivery before finally passing away. An official cause of death has not yet been released.

The infant was found dead on February 24th, however an arrest wasn't made until after investigators were able to link her to the child with DNA evidence. Detectives reportedly took samples from over a dozen people before obtaining a DNA match with Kelly. A second DNA test was performed to confirm the match, according to the Union County Sheriff's Office.

Although investigators have not established an official motive, those close to the case believe the pregnancy was a result of an affair that Kelly was attempting to conceal.

Relatives of Kelly's boyfriend say they were unaware she was pregnant and were in "shock" that they didn't notice that she was 9 months pregnant.

Authorities have not been able to locate the child's father.

"We will not rest until all responsible parties are held accountable for this horrendous crime," said Sheriff's Capt. Mike Easley. "This death absolutely did not have to occur, given the 'Safe Surrender' statutes on the books."

Kelly, who also has a two-year-old son, was booked into the Union County Jail on murder charges. Her first court appearance has been scheduled for May 6.

If only the evil bitch could be sentenced to be immobilized and abandoned, naked and helpless, to die of starvation and exposure. It only seems fair.

Maybe next time she'll keep her f***ing legs closed.

I just don't understand how one does something like that? How do you throw a live baby into the trash and then walk away? How?

i'm wondering how no one ever heard that baby crying for that time period that it was there. I hope that mother gets whats coming to her and when shes in jail i hope they all treat her like the piece of shit that she is.

There is a surrender law out there for children....if she didn't want the child she could have given it up...then adoption list is so long for people who can not have children and it sickens me to think that a poor innocent child laid in a pile of trash with no warmth in the cold and died. She is heartless and does not deserve a break in this matter....

i get the feeling she feared her family rage than the cops....

Why not ask the boyfriend he is full of criminal mistakes. He would be the one that would do something like this and put the blame on her. Everyone in union county knows that bad rap of the boyfriend and what he is capable of.

hey if you don't know what happened when she hed he baby or what was going on in her life i say anything. we don't know what she went throuht maybe she was scared for her and her familys life whos to say her boyfriend dint do it. or someone in his family.

guera said...

hey if she did do it then why aren't they still talking about it something is going on and no one is talking. i think the public has the right to know what is going on. even if they are looking for some one else the public could help find that person. so why haven't they said anything about her since friday. who else are they looking for.

I think it of our nature to judge but not wise to say the least. Alot of you do not know the girl, her situation, nor the circumstances of the case. I too believe she feared for her life and that of her other child. I think she was made do this/had help and is way to scared to tell it due to her fear. None of you know what she was threatened of. If someone said i will kill your other child if you ever tell, what the hell would you do????????I mean you gotta read everything, and in between the lines. Do not just judge.

I don't care what her "story" is or what her bf/husband threatened her with. There's NO WAY she couldn't have done SOMETHING - dial 911, flag down a neighbor, FIGHT. Sorry, no sympathy - that's an innocent baby who starved or died of exposure, and that child's mother ALLOWED it.

SICK.

If there are other parties involved, I hope they catch and prosecute them 100% too - but this woman should not just get away with her part in it.

camom1978 said...

CheLsea,

Anytime a child is killed it is societies business!!

We will judge, and we will comment!

If she WERE actually the GOOD person you say she is, she WOULD NOT HAVE dumped her baby on a trash pile to die.

Wake Up!!!

The baby is more important than the BITCH that bread it!!!!!

The baby is dead, the MARE is responsible and she deserves to pay!!

I do not, and will not refer to this incubator as a "Mother".

As mother's love and protect their children, which she clearly did neither.

I really dont think erica was all there since her boyfriend provides her with drugs. I fell personally he had something to do with it. If I were her I would sing like a canary and put him where he needs to belong. People really dont know what he is capable of. Exspecially since he is mixed up in the M13 gang and alot of other illegal activities. But only God will tell and the truth will set her free- speak up girl save ur life. Prayers are with you Erica and no one can hurt you now!

That baby was left for 48 hrs!!! I am a mother of three children myself and I have to say that NO threat could cause me to abandon any one of them. BTW, I have no criminal record and assuming that because people criticize those who do are criminals is ridiculous.

That baby entered the cold, harsh world with the right to expect her mother to care and shelter her the way she had been for the past nine months. Instead she died alone, cold, and hungry. How can you consider a person who would do this a good mother? You can't be a good mother if you are willing to let your child's little sister die.

i think some of you hit the nail on the head and then missed it all together at the same time. i know both of them and i know what david has done in the past. erica really is a good person she would never let her baby be killed or kill her baby "if she knew what was going on around her because she loves kids and her son means everything to her" her and david were fighting for custody of their son so what would keep him from killing this baby and letting her get arrested for the murder and him take off with him and by the way he doesn't have custody of him but he still has him. whats up with that something is going on and nothing is happening

Anonymous said...

ok so you all about them right? then why is david telling her family hes going to hurt them and why didn't he tell her mom her son was sick this weekend why did she have to call and have her mom go get him if you know soo much about this matter

Well I know these two people and have to say i wouldn't put it past either of them to lay this porr baby out to die but I heard through someone that heard through someone that the babies legs and arms were almost cut completely off by a knife. Well these two are so messed up on drugs they could have done this together and never realized what was going on. I feel sorry for the baby girl but I truly feel sorry for the 2 year old boy in this case because now he is without a mother and this was someone he was used to being with. And how do you tell a two year old that his mom is in jail for murder of his baby sister? You don't He is hurting whether or not he is showing it. I pray for this whole family and justice to prevail. If this lady did not commit this crime God will show who did.

@Anonymous: u said u hope that mother gets whats coming to her when shes in jail and they treat her like the piece of shit that she is. but u also said in another comment that u no both of them and erica is a really good person and she would never kill her baby. make up ur mind! do u no her or not?! r u on her side or not!? i was in jail with her back in feb, 2010 and actually no one treated her bad. in fact, most of them treated her like a queen, or should i say angel. the first few days i was there i didnt no y she was in there, until one of the other inmates told me. erica acted sorta strange and childish like. i dont no if she did it or not, but there was something in her eyes that said she was a cold hearted, soulless human being. her eyes were black and empty. it was very creepy! it was like there was nothing there. she did make a comment at dinner time though, saying something in the nature of, "that sounds like my case, i'm being framed for something i didn't do". but like u stated, "who r we to judge", only god and herself no. the truth will set her free!

Jury selection starts today. It probably makes her feel good that Casey Anthony was acquitted yesterday and her jury selection is the very next day. I know her, slightly, she doesn't seem the type but she did know that she had a child, what did she think happened to it after she gave birth? She is guilty of something, take your pick 1. Murder of some type. 2 Conspiracy of some type. 3. Child abuse. 4. Accessory after the fact. 5. Lying to the police. I could go on but you get the point.
