Mother Claims She's Possessed, Then Proves It

Bradie Simpson.jpg
Bradie Simpson was possessed by something all right.
A Camden County woman went to the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Camdenton in October and handed over her infant daughter, saying that she was possessed and she feared she was going to hurt the child. On February 4, the woman apparently proved her premonition true.

A day earlier, Bradie R. Simpson, 39, called the police to her mobile home claiming her neighbor had shot himself. The neighbor was fine, and the police left. Several hours later, sheriff's deputies were called back again, this time by Simpson's son. He told them his mother had disappeared, and that there was a bloody knife in the bedroom.

Police searched the area, and discovered a grisly scene in the woods according to the probable cause statement.

At approximately 4:00 AM Deputies located Simpson seated in a wooded area approximately 225 feet from the residence. As Deputies approached Simpson they observed her to be holding (child's name redacted). They further observed (child) to be unresponsive and covered in blood. Deputies attempted to communicate with Simpson, asking her several times what happened. Simpson was conscious and appeared alert but did not respond. Deputies were able to identify at least one lacerated injury crossing (the child's) throat and immediately took (the child) from Simpson for the purpose of emergency medical attention. Simpson also had what appeared to be a lacerated wound on her neck and was escorted to the roadway for medical attention.
Police then searched the trailer and found no signs of break-in or struggle. They did find two metal spoons and a small baggie containing heroin residue in Simpson's bedroom.

The child was in critical condition at a local hospital as of Sunday. Simpson remains in custody.

to the second to last comment about her reaching out for help, you must understand the woman was doing heroine one of the most phyco active drugs (if not the most) in the world. guilt and preservation of her habbit she probably walked in to confess, but then chose to use the god thing instead, later on she probably burned through her stash, realized if she didnt have a kid she would have more money, or mabey she would commit a crime and go to a hospital were they would give her more.<--no joke drug addicts get that stupid

The Pastor of the church did take the baby and called 911, the baby was removed by social sevices, and then later returned. She also admitted herself to a local hospital for pysciatric care, but was relaesed as well. The Pastor did all he could, she did cry for help, and the system failed here.  I know this because I am a local, and I know the pastor's wife. The newspaper here left out that information, and I believe it has recieved the response they were looking for, This pastor, who did the right thing has recived alot of grief and blame, unrightly so. I will be writting a letter to the local paper, as well as cancling my subscription. I feel sorry for all that were involved.

Chalk up yet another murder motivated by pulpit pounding preachers' myths & legends planted into the minds of intellectually constipated pew sitters.

Possession seems to be a recurring event while doing Heroin. I blame the dealers.

Why didn't CPS take away this kid if the mother claimed she was possessed by demons? and bought the baby to a church? What the hell is wrong with everybody in this Missouri Town? I remember reading the mother's story after doing heroine. Thanks to God the baby is still alive.

I don't understand this. This woman had some sort of psychotic something going on, she went to a preacher for help stated her psychotic thoughts yet no one intervened? She was obviously trying to get help. Then the crazy false call to the cops? These people all had a part in failing to prevent this from happening.

"AuBuchon was to testify in a hearing revolving around the incident at his church, but Missouri officials said Simpson was under the state's care just before the court hearing was to take place. He wonders if he could have done more for the mother and child. "

sounds like a stellar job by CPS of dropping the ball....and they'll probably give her back so that egg-donor can finish what she started
