An 18-year old Chicago woman has been charged with first-degree murder is connection with the bizarre killing of her newborn baby.
Ana Rosa Mora gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday, April 19, then put him in a plastic WalMart bag and placed him outside.
By the time a construction worker found the child it was dead. The Cook County medical examiner’s office later determined the boy died from asphyxia and possible exposure.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Mora wanted to get rid of the child because it looked like his father and she was afraid her new boyfriend would leave her because of it.
Teachers at Kelvyn High School who knew Mora was pregnant noticed she had given birth when she returned to school. When asked about her baby, Mora showed photos on her iPad of a newborn girl she said was hers.
Mora’s story began to unravel when she asked school administrators about a dead baby. She wanted to know if police could take DNA from people in her home and if the DNA could be used to determine who the parents were.
Later a Chicago cop stationed at the school congratulated Mora on the birth of her child and asked how old it was. She was overheard telling the officer the child was six months old.
A suspicious staff member called the officer with concerns about Mora’s story. The teen was interviewed on Tuesday, April 22. On Friday, April 25, she was arrested at her home.
Mora admitted she had lied to school officials and she had actually put her child outside. She’s currently being held on $500,000 bail.
Conrad Murray was released from prison in October after serving 2 years for killing Michael Jackson. Instead of going away quietly, the former doctor continues to stir up controversy.
In a new interview with The Daily Mail, Murray reveals intimate details about Jackson’s life.
On his relationship with Jackson
We were family. We loved each other as brothers.I never gave Michael anything that would kill him. I loved him. I still do. I always will
On first learning Jackson was taking propofol to help him sleep
He told me there were doctors in Germany that gave it to him. I didn’t agree with this at all, but Michael wasn’t the kind of man you can say no to. He would always find a way. So I acquired propofol and gave it to him over a two-and-a-half month period as I weaned him off it, which I finally achieved three days before he died. He begged me for the drug because he wanted to sleep, because then he didn’t have to think. He was in crisis at the end of his life, filled with panic and misery. I would sit with him when he was on a propofol drip. It’s a very fast-acting drug that disappears from the body quickly. Fifteen minutes after the drug is administered, it’s gone. I gave him very light, light sedation.
On Jackson’s physical health
Michael was a decrepit man. He was frail. I had to force him to eat, to drink fluids. He always ate the same meal: rice and chicken. Michael never had anyone who cared for him. I asked him why he always wore socks. He showed me his feet. They were terrible. Fungus had penetrated into the skin. He had calluses that went all the way to the bone. He was in agonizing pain
On applying cream to change Jackson’s skin color
He transformed himself because he wanted to obscure where he came from. He wanted to look different from his family. He wanted porcelain, flawless skin. Those were his words
On Michael’s drug addiction
I had no idea Michael was getting demerol, which he had grown to love over several decades. I’ve used demerol in the emergency room. The maximum is 75mg that I would use. Michael was receiving as much as 300mg several times a week. That night he just couldn’t sleep. I prescribed him drugs to help, including valium and lorazepam, but he was begging, pleading, close to tears. “I want sleep, please Dr Conrad, I need sleep. I told him, “This is not normal. What I’ve given you would put an elephant to sleep”. In the other bedroom [Michael’s private chamber], the police found an open bottle of lorazepam [an anti-anxiety drug]. They found tablets in his stomach. I didn’t give him those. Michael took extra tablets. And he injected himself. I did not kill Michael Jackson. He was a drug addict. Michael Jackson accidentally killed Michael Jackson.
On having to assist Jackson putting on condoms.
You want to know how close Michael and I were? I held his penis every night. I had to put a condom catheter on him because Michael dripped urine. He had a loss of sensation and was incontinent. Michael didn’t know how to put a condom on, so I had to do it for him.
