Hush Little Baby...
"Will you just shut up?!" the angry mother lashed out. She threw the dirty bowl back into the sink, splashing murky water everywhere. "Shit!"
She stormed across the kitchen to the bassinet.
"Ssshhhhh..." she picked up the baby, already blue, and cold to the touch. "Ssshhh... mummy's here now. Sshhhh..."
Police survey the scene:
The husband, looking ashen sitting curbside clutching his broken wrist. The wife, lower lip quivering crimson from kissing the dashboard. The car, overturned and twisted with headlights still staring into the distance.
But most chilling, the empty child’s seat in the back-- and the open window.
