19-yr-old tried to kill infant niece by lacing breast milk
We are nothing without the foundation of family. The benefits of being part of a family make people truly rich.
It is the trust in being able to rely on family that can get you out of trouble or get you desperately needed help, even when you don’t even have to ask for help. An intuitive mother, who had to contend with her daughter’s unspeakable planning, came through as a grandmother and saved the life of her innocent 11-week-old granddaughter.
Nineteen-year-old Sarai Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother is a loving family woman from Fort Wayne, Indiana, who was always welcoming of her family’s needs. Sometime before January 2017, Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother allowed her son, his fiancée, and their 11-week-old daughter — her granddaughter — to stay in her home.
After Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother welcomed her son and extended family into her home, sometime later she allowed them to stay longer. Rodriguez-Miranda harbored intense resentment against her brother and his family due to their presence, which her mother probably picked up on.
In January 2017, Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother, perhaps relying on her maternal instincts, must have sensed that something was very wrong in her home. Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother went through her daughter’s cell phone and found text messages that shocked her to her core.
Rodriguez-Miranda had sent text messages to her boyfriend that detailed her own attempts to poison and kill her 11-month-old niece. Her mother, looking through her text messages to her boyfriend, found sinister messages like, “Why didn’t that baby die dude thats dumb…They definitely threw it out.”
The mother was horrified to find numerous, remorseless message from her own daughter, who had plotted the murder of her niece. Miranda-Rodriguez also wrote via text,”… tbh I hope she dies… I don’t feel bad about it …”
Looking through all of the text messages, Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother came across a cell phone photo of a mortar and pestle that contained the residue of a crushed, white powdery substance. Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother took screenshot photos of the text messages and pics as evidence and went to her refrigerator.
