Holy cow, these women deserve medals and every good thing there is. And Indy police need to get their heads out of their asses. That detective knew what an amazing job they did, though. All on their damned own. Amazing humans.

ETA CNN giving police the credit, fucking figures.

Yeah I'm not impressed about the picture of the cop holding the baby. I know that without looking at the CNN article that someone is going to tweak the story into the cops favour.

Reading this makes the cops sound truly useless. Without these ladies the babies would not have been found.

This holy fuck. That baby would be dead if it wasnt for these two.

They kind of were. The cop was ready to let the woman go with which is so crazy to me.


Just-Examination-136 t1_j1jbot0 wrote

The cops don't want to release details about the case because these two women just embarrassed them.

EDIT: I can't wait for the movie to come out.

Salty_Drummer2687 t1_j1l1ykh wrote

Seriously they said "God delivered the baby right into their hands" but the entire story doesn't even mention these women?

What an actual unbelievable story and amazing people to actually figure this out.

They saved that baby's life, no doubt. CNN should edit this story with more details about how the baby was found.


chairUrchin t1_j1meqrz wrote

Yeah that part makes me mad. These women are actual heroes and deserve the credit.

Lol they literally thanked God for showing the cops the baby.

Since you're copy and pasting your stupidity I'll put this here too

Um what? These ladies found the baby in the Honda outside the papa John's after dealing with the suspect and helping get her arrested.

The cops took credit for both finding and recovering the baby when they just showed up after it had been found and took the baby from the car. They don't mention these ladies at all

Maybe learn how to read before you deepthroat another boot

I wonder how long that poor baby was left in the car in freezing temps? I assume the car was not left running that whole time 'Mae' was riding around with the women. This is an incredible story and these women deserve all the accolades.

Last I heard Kason is still in the hospital but is expected to be home for Christmas. They think he was alone in the car since Tuesday. 😭


sendnewt_s t1_j1kahqn wrote

Jfc, that is one strong little baby.


omgmypony t1_j1knoub wrote

One of the articles mentioned how he didn’t even cry when the police officer picked him up and all I could think about was how long that poor baby cried in that car before giving up


honeydewmln t1_j1kobg1 wrote

This hurts my heart as a father. I have an 8 month old and know how much this ordeal will affect that poor baby. I’m just glad those women were able to save him.


rooftopfilth t1_j1m9gk9 wrote

That is a really, really bad sign. That doesn’t just come from one incident with the car. That lady was neglecting them hard.

Edit: the kidnapper, not the biomom! That was unclear. Kiddo went missing Monday and had an entire week of cries going unheard.


Poverload237 t1_j1mrnwm wrote

Yes, yes it does. That baby was left for 48 hours in a car in snow, sub-freezing temperatures and no food. Absolutely yes it can take just 1 traumatic event like this.

Additionally, saying the mother was intentionally neglecting her kids, with 0 proof, is a horrendous accusation and a huge leap from any known information. She made an incredibly stupid mistake but that doesn't make her neglectful. Don't throw accusations at people with no proof to back it up.


rooftopfilth t1_j1oubyx wrote

I’m saying the kidnapper was neglecting them! My understanding was that kiddo had been kidnapped at least days or weeks before he was found in the car. Did I misread?

I’m guessing that the lady who stole the car and the kid wasn’t exactly taking amazing care of the infant who happened to be in the backseat.


Poverload237 t1_j1ovpan wrote

I'm so sorry, I COMPLETELY misunderstood your comment. I thought you were saying that the baby hadn't gotten that bad in the time he was kidnapped and that the baby's mom had neglected him, so I am SO SORRY for misreading your comment!!!

100% yes the kidnapper neglected him. I absolutely agree with you there! From what I read on the case, it was around 2-3 days from the time the baby was kidnapped and the time he was found, and because the car was snow-covered from the recent storm coming through, it's a good bet that he had been in that car that entire time.

That poor baby enduring 48+ hours of sub-zero cold temps, no food, and being scared out of his mind breaks my heart 💔


rooftopfilth t1_j1roajm wrote

A gentle and kind exchange on the internet!? Where are we? It’s ok, I wasn’t clear in my initial comment, and I’m here for people defending moms! You have good intentions!


impostershop t1_j1kpbed wrote

All I can think of is what a painful cold mess he sat in for days. I hope he’s not scarred for life but this must have a developmental impact on him. The poor little guy. That woman should be charged with attempted murder.

A completely fabricated story from the Police on the national news


omgmypony t1_j1jxlte wrote

People are in the comments on Facebook calling the cops out on their bullshit on every article I’ve seen about Baby Kason.


mmmsoap t1_j1kmmcn wrote

> There, outside a Papa John’s in the very plaza where Anderson and Sgt. Richard El had stopped to eat, was the stolen car. Kason was inside. The five-month-old had been missing for nearly three full days, and had likely been alone for most of the time.

All technically true, Just missing a few key sentences in the middle that convey that they looked in the car because 2 women told them to.


devilishycleverchap t1_j1kn9or wrote

Except for the fact that they went there bc of a radio alert which is documented on this article. The ladies went to the papa John's bc they were hungry

Jesus fuck, why do you believe anything from the polices perspective here. They had to have the suspect hand delivered to them in the first place and shown the mugshots


mmmsoap t1_j1kr0k7 wrote

> Delmar said she saw a couple officers inside a Blaze Pizza nearby and rushed to tell them about the baby.

> "We've been alerted that the missing child may be located over here at the vehicle at 10th and Indiana," an officer is heard saying at about 6:40 p.m. in police radio communications.

That strongly implies that the officers who “found” the kid were the ones reporting their status over the radio, not being told to go to the car via radio.

Yeah, the CNN article was misleading, but it wasn’t false.


devilishycleverchap t1_j1kt0us wrote

So which is it, blaze or papa John's? Which pizza place did god lead these brave officers to that night to find this child?

"That's all thanks to these brave two officers"

Motherfuckers were gonna eat their shitty lebron pizza and leave if these women hadn't stepped up. Guess the plate reader on their cruiser missed this Honda they had an APB out for


goodgodling t1_j1mgwt9 wrote

It isn't even a very big parking lot. Were they even looking?


orngesodaaa t1_j1q5vgk wrote

I looked on google maps and both pizza joints are in the same plaza. I assume the women stopped to eat at papa johns, saw the missing baby at papa johns parking lot, then were able to see police cars just across the parking lot at blaze pizza and ran over to alert them.

Still, the police needed to be handed everything and were useless.


goodgodling t1_j1mfmbf wrote

That's unfair. The police also give some credit to God.

If you read the original article fully, the same women who apprehended the abductor also found the baby.

This is the best story I've read in a long time. Bless those women.

These women have my utmost admiration & awe. What a wonderful pair of humans.


Nervous-Ear-8594 t1_j1qje1r wrote

They got the suspect arrested and still had the thought to go “wait where’s the baby? Let’s drive around and look!”

And they actually found the kid?! That is crazy! That picture of the cop holding the baby, you can see one of the heroic women standing in the background. Just two young women were able to do this. Anyone can be a hero or have a thought, it takes a lot to follow that intuition!


Ksh_667 t1_j1qndf2 wrote

Exactly! The police could've seemed more urgent in their responses. I mean to deny that was the woman the whole country was looking for & tell them to take her to a hostel??!! And then to have to be convinced by one of the women showing you her pic on her mobile - "oh yeh that maybe is her..."

And then they drove off with no mention of looking for the baby! To find the bus map & deduce from that the car may be parked at one of the stops on that route. And to check each stop focusing in cars with a good amount of snow on their roof, indicating they'd been there a long time!

These women are sherlock Holmes, miss marple & hercule Poirot rolled into one. I'm hoping to see them on oprah soon :)


forgot_to_growup t1_j1j68nt wrote

What a sweet baby! So relieved he was found alive. These women need to start a detective agency.

Talk about heroes. They apprehended the abductor and found the baby, while the cops get all the credit.


shamansufi t1_j1lxoss wrote

This is amazing! Not only did the two women help apprehend the kidnapper, they back to look for clues and then found the kidnapped baby by themselves! The women need to be recognized more (awards, commendations, etc.). This would make a really cool movie.

Everyone really needs to get the real story out so the RIGHT people get credit. The cop who actually pulled them over was about to let that woman go. It's bonkers.

Wow. Thank god for those women. The original story I read said the police “had a chance lunch at a papa johns pizza” and found the car by chance after lunch. Fuck them.

Amazing job.

One of the (many) sad parts is the fear the women had of being “snitches”. I’m not blaming them—- just sad they weren’t comfortable acting initially.
