Naturallymoi.com talks about the case of Toni Medrono, a woman who was attacked in national media for days after being accused of killing her own son by falling asleep on him after she’d drank a fifth of Vodka. The embarrassment was apparently too much for Toni, as she took her own life by setting herself on fire. Toni obviously wasn’t the best mother in the world, but like most moms, she probably felt a tremendous amount of guilt for what she did to her child. Was it enough for her to be prosecuted for her crime without CNN and Nancy Grace turning it into a ratings bonanza?
The death of Toni sparks debate over whether or not the media went too far in vilifying a mother who clearly made a mistake. If she had a drinking problem and accidentally killed her son, maybe she needed therapy and not national humiliation. NaturallyMoi.com tells more:
A woman accused of killing her son after she rolled on him in her sleep has died.
Toni Medrano, 29, of Cottage Grove, Minn., died Saturday at Regions Hospital in St. Paul after she was hospitalized after setting herself on fire.Medrano allegedly set herself on fire in her mother’s backyard on July 2. Police said she was “despondent and suicidal over personal issues.”
Medrano was charged last month with two counts of manslaughter in the death of her son, Adrian Alexander Medrano, who was born Nov. 1. The infant died of asphyxia Nov. 22 after authorities say that Medrano had been drinking before falling asleep on him.
