OH MY! Guilty of salt poisoning her infant?

Brewington says she didn't mean to hurt her son, but police say they believe she harmed him to try to get sympathy for herself.


Gee but she 'didn't mean' to harm him...

  • She probably has Münchhausen By Proxy...not saying it excuses her, but, it does shed light on why she did it and why she needs help...lots of it.

    This is exactly what I was going to say. What fuels that disorder is in it's own questionable, but I'm willing to bet she has this disorder.

    This is exactly what I was thinking as well. I remember studying it in college. Anyone remember the mother from "The Sixth Sense"? She was poisoning her daughter to get attention. Munchhausen By Proxy.

  • She could be suffering from Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome. Of course she isn't really suffering and she is still guilty of a horrible thing but it is a real mental disease and she will probably get stuck in a mental hospital for a few years.

  • I am the parent of two children who are considered "Medically Fragile" by the state. I know how it is to parent MF Children and it is such a blessing. It seems to me like that she did not want to deal with the issues her son had. How sad. I hope the little guy gets adopted by an amazing family.
