Here’s yet another sad story of a woman who picked a penis to the detriment of her child.
19-year-old Taryn Goolsby allegedly left her two-year-old daughter Morgaine in the care of her boyfriend, 23-year-old Brandon Scott Benninger.
Medical personnel at the Healthmark Regional Medical Center in Defuniak Springs, Florida notified authorities after the pair brought the little girl in with severe burns to her face and chest.
According to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office Benninger burned the little girl with scalding water in the bathtub while he was babysitting her. You might think, “well maybe it was just an accident” and if this were the only signs of abuse you might be right but unfortunately for the little girl it’s not.
In addition to suffering from second degree burns she also had several bruises in various stages of healing (still explainable, my children are klutzes) along with swelling on her cheeks and lips and an adult bite mark on her arm which isn’t easily fucking explainable.
Both Taryn and her boyfriend Brandon have been incarcerated on charges of aggravated child abuse and as of yesterday afternoon were still lodged in the Walton County Jail. Goolsby is being held on $10,000 and only allowed to have supervised visits by DCF, which is also investigating the alleged abuse. Benninger is being held on $100,000 bond and can have no contact with the girl.
Taryn’s latest status update on MySpace says, “this is the worst day of my life. i dont know how im going to live with out my daughter“. Perhaps you should have thrown your boyfriend out on his ass after the first bruise showed up? Brandon has two children of his own that he obviously isn’t with. I don’t have the reasons why but as far as I’ve been able to ascertain Taryn and Brandon have only been dating a few months.
