Updated: Fenton Parents Questioned In Scalding After Infant Taken Away By Ambulance



Fenton, MO- At approximately 8:30 am this morning Emergency Responders arrived at the single-family home at San Miguel and Beso Court, where an infant was rushed into an ambulance, screaming and covered by a large blanket by an unidentified person. Soon after, police and a Crime Scene Investigation Team arrived, and continued to process the scene through the late afternoon.

St. Louis County Police removed around a dozen firearms from a home in unincorporated Fenton, according to witnesses. According to neighbors, multiple firearms were removed from the property around 2:45 in the afternoon, about one half hour before busses were due to drop students off from a nearby elementary school. It is not clear why the firearms were removed from the home, as it appears no firearms were involved in the incident, leaving many to wonder about due process and Second Amendment Rights.

The father and mother of the child have been detained, and held separately, by St. Louis County Police in the questioning of what was deemed a scalding, but have not been charged.

The condition of the infant is unknown at the time. Though one neighbor stated she thought she might have seen flames through the front door of the household, no fire was confirmed. In addition to the infant, the mother, father and two young boys also live at the rented property.

Fenton, a middle-class suburb about 20 minutes west of St. Louis, has always been considered a quiet family neighborhood by residents, has seen a disturbing rise in crime and drug activity in recent months.

Update: The infant was rushed to St. John’s Mercy hospital with burns over 80% of the body.  The scalding was apparently so gruesome, responding paramedics responding to the initial scene were not permitted to enter the home.

    So, I see a glaring omission in this story…such as WHY the firearms were removed? Was this child the first in history to be scalded by a firearm? Should gun owners now avoid calling 911 for medical emergencies in fear that their firearms civil rights will be oppressed by an unrelated matter?

      No, it was a rented home, by which the terms of the agreement was no firearms on premisis. And by the size of the home, there is virtually no was for a minimum of 38 heavy duty firearms, mostly automatic, and the ammo, to be safely stored.
      If you think you’ve got a gun-hater here, you’re barking up the wrong tree.

      Also, Robert, out of curiosity, how do you feel about Industrial Sabotage being taught in the classroom at your University?

        I feel pretty bad that I had to turn down Phil C, Adam S, and Dana L’s offer to make me famous by giving them more tapes of Giljum’s lectures…I was the tech that handled his NEW labor relations distance learning class spring semester. I’d love nothing more than to burn their little den of snakes to the ground…I just can’t find a do so without losing my job and committing a felony FERPA violation in the process.

        Just go look at Breitbart’s tweets from a few weeks before he died. I was feeding him info on what Giljum was pushing in class and he was re-tweeting it to his thousands of followers.

    About half your information is incorrect! You might want to find out for sure what you’re talking about before reporting it.

      Really Stacey? I was 20 feet max from the ambulance when he was brought out. In fact, the firefighter who was first on-scene ordered the medics to stay out of the house because it was so gruesome. I still hear the baby’s screaming in my head, I watched the police and medics trying to gain composure so they could talk to neighbors. I watched the utter chaos when the police mixed in after Ryan got home. Still think I don’t know what is going on? Deny the guns on premisis in violating of the lease agreement. Deny the fact that they changed the locks. Deny the fact that Landin’s brothers were not dutifully cared for in the middle of the crisis and left for the school to handle (yeah, I was there for that too). Go ahead and deny it all…it present the “facts”… You know, the ones the police, medics and firefighters, oh and witnesses, neighbors and attorneys sat DON’T ADD UP
