A Missouri woman by the name of Natalia Jacquemin reportedly called the St. Charles police on August 27th, 2021 to admit that she had slit the throat of a 6-year-old boy.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Report, Jacquemin stated, “I slit his throat. I tried getting him away from his dad. I slit his neck. … I did it.”
Jacquemin’s charges consist of armed criminal action and first-degree assault.
Uhh, how she wasn’t charged with attempted murder, I’ll never know. Perhaps we can hope for the charges to be increased as the investigation progresses?
Because, according to Fox News, she allegedly told a responding officer, “I just wanted him to rest in peace.”
Sounds like attempted murder to me…
As far as I’m concerned, she would make a fantastic Democratic Congresswoman, post-birth abortion attempt and all.
The only other scenario I can visualize is one of those movie scenes where someone is holding a hostage with one hand, then holding a knife in the other hand to ward off any on-comers. Perhaps forgetting that the knife was in the same hand she was holding the child?
I’m not excusing it, I’m just trying to make sense of the narrative… in the never-ending search for logic and reasoning, amiright?
Fox News reported:
The boy survived but sustained an eight-inch laceration to the neck that caused muscle damage and would require surgery.
EIGHT INCHES?! Sheesh…I take back the whole “accident” theory that I proposed.
Authorities did not say where the attack occurred. Investigators found a drop of blood on the floor of a hallway between the kitchen and the boy’s bedroom, prosecutors said.
Several knives and a razor were also found, but no blood was on them.
St. Charles County jail is where Jacquemin is currently being held.
