Victimless Crime File: Lindsey Fiddler Gets High, Kills Baby

26?

The above is Lindsey Fiddler, 26(!?!), who is well known in Oklahoma as a drug addict and small time criminal. Despite her history, children’s services denied her families request to have her parental rights terminated. That decision led to the horrific death of Fiddler’s newborn:

Lyndsey Fiddler, 26, was high on drugs when she put her newborn daughter, Maggie May Trammel, in the washing machine along with the dirty laundry and started a washing cycle, local station NewsOn6 reported.

The baby’s great aunt, Rhonda Coshatt, was also in the house at the time and realized something was wrong when she saw Fiddler passed out and unresponsive on a chair with the child nowhere to be found.

After hearing a clunking noise coming from the washer, she opened the lid and found the dead infant.

Fiddler, who is being held on $100,000 bail, tested positive for a variety of drugs, including methamphetamine, amphetamines, benzodiazepine and opiates.

Under questioning, she told police that she wrapped her daughter in a blanket and gave her a pacifier, but was unable to remember how the baby ended up in the washing machine and went through an entire washing cycle.

Fiddler’s dangerous drug habit spurred her relatives toward an unsuccessful attempt to have her parental rights stripped when she was four months pregnant.

This is not Fiddler’s first run-in with the law, the Tulsa World reported.  She had previously been convicted of larceny and assault and battery, and has received numerous traffic violations for speeding, driving without a license and failing to put her other kids in child safety seats.

Disgusting. Rumor is that child services were already involved, knew she was living in drug addict squalor, and did nothing. Which is how they would have treated this case if drugs were legal, right?

So even if meth was legal, this crime would have happened. Legalization of drugs should be argued on the merits, not the myth that drug legalization would stop crimes from happening.

Since we’re talking about drug use. Here’s a picture of a near 60 Jennifer Tilly:

Aging well

Now look at the mugshot of Lindsey Fiddler again. Fiddler is about one third her age. Who looks better? Drugs suck.

    And all I can add to Loup’s comment is that she looks like the bastard love child of Steve Tyler and a puffer fish.
