The baby was Kaleb Schwade. The mom, Kristy Reynolds. The accused, the babysitter, Rebecca Saunders. The babysitter is scheduled to go to trial in July from what I have read. I don't think the babysitter is guilty. Guess we will just have to wait and see.

Why don't you think the babysitter is guilty? You do know that if the mother or father were even considered a suspect at any time they wouldn't have been anywhere near that baby.

What information do you have that implicates anyone but the babysitter?


OP, I have been on the mother's myspace since the incident became a myspace topic, and I have read each and every blog entry. The baby is getting better and imrpoving in ways they never thought he would. Kaleb has a little brother named Kason and they are doing great for each other.
It's a sad story and we will learn so much more once the case makes it to trial. She has never been able to defend herself or explain why specifically the babysitter is the only suspect. This is because it could be damaging to the case.

You can look up Kristy Schwade on myspace. I don't know if she is still adding people because of all the hate mail she was getting.

I have known about this case since one month after it happened. I had a bulletin send to my myspace page. I normally ALWAYS give the mom the benefit of the doubt, but there was just too many red flags for me to ignore. There were a lot of messages on her page with dates deliniating when Kaleb was sick, lots of pictures that just didn't sit right with me. You have to understand, I have been a nurse for 10 years. I have seen people in just about every state of grief you can imagine. Those pictures were just......not right. I showed some of my nurse friends, some NICU, etc.....every one of them thought she wasn't acting right and didn't look like a mother who had a baby shaken by a MONSTER.

There was also a brother that had information about the extent of the bleeding, the MRI results, etc. Kaleb had gone to the pediatrician AFTER being picked up sick by the aunt from the babysitter. From what I have read, Kaleb didn't start showing signs until 2 days later. From the severity of the bleed, IMO it had to happen MUCH sooner if the babysitter had to be the one who shook him. It would not have taken two days.

Now, I hear that there is conflicting information regarding the timeline. I guess we shall see. I just have a funny feeling about Kristy. I don't ignore my hunches.

Oh, one other thing. There were quite a few people who immediately came to Rebecca's side when this happened. She had quite a few parents who had their children in her care that had nothing but wonderful things to say about her. The babysitter (Rebecca) has 3 kids of her own. She seems less likely to shake her baby than maybe the mother or baby's father.

 Are you talking about Kaleb Schwade?  They are still in court. He is still living and still severely brain damaged. She just had another baby... they are all doing well and still in Florida.

In addition to all that Goldi has said Kristy is back to raising cash for "Kaleb".

She is a loser. Even if she is NOT guilty...she is still a dumb bitch in my book.

And now her myspace page is public again. She is attention seeking. There was a LOT of drama regarding making her page private. Then, she turns around and makes it public. I think she is doing this because the trial is getting ready to start next month AND she is looking for donations.
