The identity of a toddler who was abandoned on the front porch of a home in an Anderson County subdivision is still unknown.
The child appears to be 2 to 3 years old, according to investigators.
Anderson County sheriff’s spokesman Chad McBride said there is a “high probability she’s not from this area.”
McBride said Anderson County law enforcement typically gets tips on even the smallest crimes, things as insignificant as lawnmower thefts.
“Not one tip has come in so far to the Sheriff’s Office or Crimestoppers. Nothing. And that’s highly unusual,” McBride said. “She could be from the other side of the country for all we know, we just don’t know.”
Because of the child’s surgical scars, a doctor from Greenville Health System will check her out to see if they can figure out what type of surgery she had.
“We’re going to reach down to the Charleston hospital today, where they perform a lot of surgeries on kids,” McBride said. “We’re just trying anything to figure it out,” McBride said. “How in the world did she get here and who in the world is she?”
The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said that someone rang the doorbell at the home on Brook Forest Drive in the Nevitt Forest subdivision at about 11 p.m. Tuesday. When Roy Campbell opened the door, he found the baby girl in a stroller and no sign of who had left her.
Ummmm so what would make a player from the MIAMI Heat try to convince a judge that he ISN’T a Florida resident? A more than 10x increase in child support, that’s what. Miami Heat superstar Chris Bosh was grilled for nearly two hours in an Orlando courtroom by lawyers and a judge trying to determine whether the power forward is a Florida resident.
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – A judge says that while a Mount Pleasant couple didn’t mean to harm their 9-month old son who starved to death, they should have taken him to a doctor when he was losing weight.
Circuit Judge J.C. Nicholson on Thursday sentenced the child’s mother, 28-year-old Ashley Gordon, to nine years in prison and her husband, 30-year-old Charles Lewis Gordon IV, to seven years.
The couple pleaded guilty earlier this week to homicide by child neglect. They could have been sentenced to life in prison.
Authorities say the couple’s son, Andrew, was found starved to death in their home two years ago. The child was unresponsive and weighed just 6 pounds, 9 ounces, or almost 2 pounds less than when he was born.
