What ever happened to Kaleb Schwade?

The little baby boy who was allegedly shaken by his daycare provider and the story was all over MySpace and the internet? Does anyone know if the daycare provider ever went to trial and what happened with it? How is Kaleb doing now? I did a search on the internet but I can't find any updates!!

  • I don't know what happened to him but his baby sitter Rebecca Saunders pled guilty and got only 18 m. in jail. What a sham.

  • In Rebecca's shoes I would have taken the same deal to be home with my family. Found guilty or innocent people would have still treated her as a child abuser. There wasn't enough evidence to convict her that is why she was offered the deal. Kaleb had an old head injury and he had been vomiting before Rebecca ever had him in her home. There was as much evidence pointing at the family as the sitter they were better at pointing the finger. I hope whoever hurt Kaleb lives a miserable life.

  • Someone posted their address and phone number on a public forum, the family started receiving threats and harassment and such, so they stopped updating.

    This is apparently the last update that was given before Kristy Schwade's myspace was turned private:

    Not sure how old this picture is, but one of these boys must be Kaleb. My guess is that he's the one in the stroller, but he could be the other one. Either way, he looks like he's recovered quite well.
