A thought — Daisja Weaver now missing one year

I just remembered that nine-month-old Daisja Weaver was reported missing one year and nineteen days ago. Her mom claimed a man had broken into their apartment and tried to rape her, then ran off with the baby. The police were like, “Uh-huh, suuuure.” And very quickly the story fell apart. Daisja’s so-called father, Alandus, confessed that he “accidentally” drowned her while Daisja’s excuse for a mom, Tamaira Creagh, was out. Then he and Tamaira got rid of the body together and made up the kidnap story. They never found Daisja’s body and they don’t expect to. After a year, and given that she was an infant, there may be nothing left to find.

I did a search for more recent info and discovered that Alandus was found guilty of capital murder last month. At his trial he changed his story again, saying Tamaira had smothered the baby. He was sentenced to life in prison. Not sure how he escaped the death sentence. Tamaira gave birth to Alandus’s son a few months after Daisja’s murder. As far as I know she’s not in jail, I found her Facebook page which mentions “two kids daisja marie (RIP) and jayden my little man.”

I do not understand why women date dirt bags, have children by them and then let them abuse the children. Tamaira says she was a victim of long-term abuse at Alandus’s hands. I can buy that. He sounds like the abusing kind — he did kill his daughter after all. But if he was so horrible, why did she leave her helpless baby daughter in his care? I don’t understand that at all. Daisja looks like she was a beautiful baby. I’m sure plenty of people would have been willing to adopt her. Just luck of the draw that she got stuck with those two.
