Accused: the 74 stone babysitter

Post  Not Born Yesterday on Tue 3 Jan - 13:20

This is the title of a programme on at 9 o'clock this evening on Channel 4. It relates to the bizarre story of a 74 stone Texan woman accused of killling her two-year-old nephew.

As she was incapable of looking after herself because of her weight, how the child was left in her care is a mystery in itself.

How could anyone let themselves get that Obese.....the Guy who sings "Somewhere over the Rainbow" with a lovely soft voice is 59 stone and he
ended up bedridden.

I don't know the person you mean Panda but I always think of Brian Wilson, one of the founder members of the Beach Boys. He ended up like that due to drug and mental health issues. He has done wonderfully well to return to a normal size and to the music business.

No he is not the one, this Guy was from Thailand ,or somewhere like that and we discussed him on here last year. He played the Ukelele while he sang the song, real sweet voice....AnnaEsse knows who I mean, if she reads this thread I"m sure she will be able to put the video on here.....won"t you Anna.

I watched the programme last night, the Woman really looks grotesque, confined to her bed, her legs looked like those in the Michelin tyre ad only ten times worse. Her Husband waited on her hand foot and finger, bathed her daily,you have to admire him.

It was thought she had rolled over an smothered the baby but she swore she never and in the end broke down and it turned out it was her Sister who was
responsible for the Baby"s death.

Thanks NBY, I missed a bit last night popping in and out of the kitchen so will see it again tonight. I remember the bit where the Doctor said her calorie intake was 18 thousand calories a day, average is 2000.......did no one try to stop her when she was a teenager????

BTW, Aren"t you clever finding this and transferring....don"t tell me how you did it, I won"t understand.

I watched that last night.


Didn't her sister have 6 other kids....thank god she gave herself up but whatever happened to the poor kids...hope they didn't stay with the father as he was selling the 'sister' for money and that is why she gave herself up....not for her kids but for herself.

I wondered what happened to the children too. There were three others at the time the boy died and his mother had another one later.
