Texas Mom Left Her 1 and 2-Year Old Kids in Hot Car To Die

A Texas teenage mom intentionally left two toddlers in a hot car for hours, ignored their cries that eventually led the poor kids to die. The young mother also lied to investigators about what really happened.

Amanda Hawkins, 19, of Kerrville is charged with child endangerment for the deaths of her daughters, Brynn Hawkins, 1, and Addyson Overgard-Eddy, 2, on Thursday.

Kerrville County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer condemned the incident and the mother’s negligence. He said in a news release Friday announcing the mother’s arrest that: “This is by far the most horrific case of child endangerment that I have seen in the 37 years that I have been in law enforcement.”

Hierholzer described the toddlers as “blonde, blue-eyed kids.” He also told media that Hawkins and her 16-year-old boy companion drove to a friend’s house Tuesday night and left the children in the car while they were inside, and while temperatures at the time raged in the 80s.

The sheriff said that shockingly the girls were left alone in the car for a horrific 15 hours, except for the brief time that the boy went inside the vehicle to take a nap before going back to the house.

The official also said that someone in the house could even hear the crying of the kids and asked Hawkins to bring her daughters inside but she did not do as suggested. She even responded: “No, they’re fine. They’ll cry themselves to sleep.”

Hierholzer said the kids were already unconscious by the time Hawkins drove them home Wednesday noon. She even bathed them and changed their clothes. Others even had to urge her to bring her daughters to the hospital.

At the hospital, Hawkins told a lie. She said that the kids had collapsed while smelling flowers at the lake that may have been poisonous. Hospital staff notified the investigators who came to interview the mother.

She later finally admitted what happened. The girls were taken off ventilators Thursday afternoon. The sheriff said autopsies have been ordered.

I recommend the death penalty and hope she does a slow and excruciating death! I would have killed her myself had I witnessed that! Rot in hell you sick, vile pos! People around her are accessories to murder! She should be charged to the fullest extent of the law!
