Lyndsey Fiddler - Mother High On Meth Puts Newborn Through Wash Cycle, Jailed On Manslaughter Charges

Bartlesville, Oklahoma (The Weekly Vice) - Lyndsey Fiddler, a 26-year-old Oklahoma woman was jailed Thursday after she allegedly placed her 10-day-old daughter into the washing machine and then went to sleep while the child went through an entire wash cycle.

According to Bartlesville Police, officers were notified when Fiddler called 911 crying "My baby is dead!" A voice in the background during the call was Fiddler's aunt who insisted "No, I didn't kill your baby, you did."

Investigators say Fiddler's aunt was at the new mother's apartment when she found Fiddler asleep and had trouble waking her. Her attention was drawn to the washing machine when she noticed the child missing and then heard a loud clanging sound coming from the washroom. When she lifted the lid of the washing machine, she found the dead child inside.

Fiddler, who reportedly has a history of drug related incidents, is suspected of taking crystal meth on the day the newborn died.

In April of this year, Fiddler was arrested after she was found to be in possession of a controlled substance when she was four months pregnant. When Fiddler failed to show for her court hearing, she was found guilty and sentenced to 10 days in jail.

Fiddler had also been stopped many times for speeding, driving without a license and failing to properly secure her children in car seats.

Family members attempted to get Fiddler's parental rights to the child revoked in June, however the court ruled against them, allowing Fiddler to retain custody rights of the child and two other children.

Investigators who arrived at Fiddler's apartment Thursday initially arrested her for failing to appear in court on the aforementioned drug charges. An additional charge of manslaughter was added on Friday after detectives had a chance to process and evaluate the scene.
