Lexington, SC (The Weekly Vice) – Lexie Dial III, an 18-year-old Lexington man was jailed after he allegedly shook his 5-month-old son to death after the child failed to learn to walk quickly enough.

According to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, Dial and his son, Joshua Hunter Dial, were at home alone together on Tuesday when Dial decided to teach his son 5-month-old son to walk.

Investigators say Dial became frustrated with the boy when it seemed his son wasn't able to get the hang of walking.

Dial reportedly grabbed the child underneath his armpits and then shook him so violently that he almost immediately went unconscious, suffering from severe brain trauma around 8:00 p.m.

The infant was rushed to the Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital where he was pronounced dead Wednesday around 2:00 p.m. Doctors say he died from “subdural hemorrhage and cerebral edema as a result of blunt-force, closed-head injury”. In other words, from shaken baby syndrome.

Dial was booked into the Lexington County Detention Center and charged with homicide by child abuse. His bond amount has not yet been set.

Babies aren't ready to walk at 5 months old.

Just take this guy down to the paint store and clamp his head into the paint shaking machine until his lights go out.

5 Months old? Seriously, what douchebag. This is why kids shouldn't have kids. Obviously not mature enough and to much of a friggin douche to handle it.

Good idea with the paint shaker Ida.

I'll bet he won't be doing much walking either, after Bubba has his way with him in prison.

He deserves EVERY nasty, ugly thing that happens to him. Times a thousand.

Worthless bastard.

God bless that precious baby's soul. May he rest in heaven with a Father who truly loves him.

I second that, RegionGirl.

I bet there are some really big mean guys in the SC prison system. I hope this douchebag meets every single one... They can teach him how to be a girlfriend!

mrbowtie said...

I agree with you all. What a POS!

If the paint shaker is busy maybe an industrial dryer will work.

hrdcore said...

good idea ida.....Hate it however when the story refers to the guy as a man.
I can think of many other words to describe him but that.

I can't believe that family chose to stick with the name "Lexie" for a guy 3 times in a row!

I'd don't want him to be raped in jail like the rest of you, I just want him castrated.

You stupid mother fucker. The average age a kid starts walking is 11 months. I hope you burn in hell you fucking retard. Enjoy the ass-rapings you'll receive for the rest of your pathetic life. Fuck you and die you worthless piece of shit!

i was working the night ems brought joshua to the ER before he was taken to the other hospital where he died the next day. I saw the ct scan and knew exactly what had happened before the "father" was even charged. I had also seen the father when the sheriffs brought him in for a UA/ETOH. Being a father myself, i wanted to tear his head off, that pilled out mother fucker. Not a day goes by that I do not think about how that baby boy looked, laying there on that stretcher, and the mothers tears, and the unconcerned look of the "FATHERS" face. Children are gifts from god, no child deserves what baby boy had recieved.

And to make matters worse, the mother is a stripper and at least 2 years older than him. She was a stripper before having the baby and she became a stripper AFTER having the baby. And what is even more funny is that she is now pregnant again and married to some other guy. Her ex-husband has custody of her other children because she is bipolar and abused them. Hmmm. Maybe they should check her out as well. Perhaps the injuries were received from both parents?

To the ignorant ass who wrote above me.

Using this child's death - at the hands of this asshole - as an excuse to attack the mother? Are you serious?

Obviously you are one of Lexie's butt buddies if this is the only information you bring to the table.

I think I'd rather stay focused on the pos who murdered an innocent child.

And I don't think there's anything funny about this story maggot.
