Memphis Child Dies in House Fire After Being Left Home Alone :(


Update to this story

The second child from this story, the 2 year old has since passed away. The mother, Melanie Dunn, who left the two and three year old boys home alone has still not be charged with anything. The District Attorney’s office says they are still reviewing the file and is waiting on more crucial information to the case before they make a decision.

                                                Some things arthumb_1256009482606_0p8113213528964526e more than upsetting….they are disturbing. When I heard this story on the news I gasped. (House Catches Fire Killing 3yr Old Child After the 2 and 3 Yr Old Were Left Home Alone). I cannot believe that someone could care so less about human life that they could neglect two precious children and have no remorse about one being killed and the other being in critical condition.

If you watched the video you see the great aunt speak on what happened to these children as if it were nothing. As if to say oh well, they shouldn’t have started that fire. Oh and btw I need my food stamp card, I hope it wasn’t burned in the fire. Excuse my language but Bitch are you Crazy???   Your hot mess ass and your triflin hot mess niece shouldn’t have left two toddlers home alone to take care of themselves.

Personally I think the community should have gotten together, whipped both their asses while the news filmed it. Either that or they should have both been tossed in the fire after they casually strolled back on the scene AFTER the house was on fire and the children were being rushed to the ER. Then the police should have arrested the mother and the great aunt and threw both their asses underneath the jail.

When did taking care of your children, supporting them and protecting them become an option?

Stories like this bother me way deep down in my soul because these children were innocent. Even if they did something to start the fire, they were not old enough to be left alone nor  were they old enough to know right from wrong. It was the responsibility of their mother to take care of them and protect them. Not to leave them alone to fend for themselves while she did some shopping.

Then the audacity of the snaggle toothed aunt to speak to the news stating that not only did they leave the two children alone when the fire started, but they had also left them alone earlier in the day. Which means that these two babies were probably left alone countless times. 

The family stated that  the mother Melanie Dunn is the single mother of three children….

ok what does that mean?  That is no excuse for her stupid decision to neglect her children. She still knew not to leave those children alone and needs to be punished to the highest degree for her actions.

I am sooooo sick of parents forgetting that they have a responsibility to take care of their children and do right by them. It is not an option or a choice it is your DUTY.

I pray that the child who is in the hospital recovers and he and his older brother are placed in the home of someone who can take care of them and put their needs first.

  1. I almost didn’t click on this. Too many bad memories to put it bluntly. I spent more than twenty years working on Ambulances in the Denver area, and went on calls like this on three occasions. This sort of thing is pretty bad for the Firefighters and Paramedics involved too.

    As for the Aunt’s behavior? People react in many ways to horrendous events such as this one. The most immediate is usually utter denial. By the time that I am typing this she may be into full blown grief and incapable of doing anything but weep.

    My usual response was much like what yours appears to be. Pure anger.

    My heart goes out to this family,and all the friends and neighbors that are having to live with this terrible tragedy. May God forgive them, because a lot of people, as well as the courts probably never will.

    As a side note: In none of the situations that I was involved with were the parents drunks,or druggies. Bad things do happen to otherwise good people sometimes.

  2. Patrick. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
    It really takes special kinds of people to work as FireFighters and Paramedics. I know that you guys see the inside story and I know it has to be hard at times to deal with it and still do your job and not carry those stories home.

    again thanks for stopping by

  3. I don’t even pay attention to the local news anymore because of all the silly stuff I often hear, so I missed this story. One of my contacts on Facebook posted this today and I was buggin’. As a matter of fact, I just got of the phone with my wife to ask her if she heard of this. I have a 2yr old, and there is no way in hell I would even leave her unattended for me to just run to the mailbox much less go shopping.

    The thing that got me from the story I read in the Commercial Appeal, and as you mentioned. Was that the aunt who accompanied the mother to the store was more concerned about losing her friggin EBT Card that was in her purse that was left in the house with the kids.

    What’s wrong with people?

  5. It’s sad that children suffer because of adults negligence. A reader from Memphis sent me the story. I couldn’t believe how concerned the aunt was about her purse. You really need to see the un-edited video of the aunt. I pray that the surviving child be OK.

  6. @ Patrick-at times like this, when you are really looking for Jesus, he tends to show up through one of His sheep. Thank you for the reminder- God please forgive them, and bless them, and their whole community.

  7. The government ought to inject birth control medicine before handing out a food stamp card or any other benefit. When is the gov going to realize they can stop this breeding and existing that these low life are affording these babies ? I hope the child left in intensive care go on to heaven . She deserve more than to exist possibly disabled and left in the care of an institution that will not provide the best care. Sometimes I question GOD ..why allow this to happen to these babies .. why not the low life female that allowed it to happen . Burn them up . what purpose do they have on this earth ? Something is not right in this world !!!

  8. I am in awe of the whole situation. But now a days people see their precious children as a free income. If you cant take care of your children give them to someone who can. Thats ubsurd to leave children that age alone no matter the circumstance. If you know ur not strong enough to take on responsibility for innocent children quit having sex or have yourself fixed. Its that simple. My prayers and blessings go out to those children and hopefully one day children in those situations will be loved and taking care of by someone responsible enough to put the kids first. To many single moms doing it alone nowdays thats a bullshit excuse. Now lets see if shes going to be able to spend those stamps behind bars….

  12. Waynesha, you can’t possibly be serious. How could she not think that something just might happen? They were TWO & THREE!!!!! She already had a 5 year old, she knew what kids that age do, they get into things. Even if they’re not the ones who started the fire, they could’ve pulled something down on top of them, they could’ve ran out of the house in to traffic, they could’ve ate poison…there’s so much that could’ve happened! They are both better off….I pray for the older one. Honestly, both your aunt and your cousin should’ve been shanked! They are a waste of air. I have no pitty for them, at all. Melanie is or was on suicide watch? They should let her. Apparently, you also need to go back to school and learn how to write correctly, you will never get anywhere in life writing or speaking like that. It’s not your fault, it’s the way they’re teaching now…but you really need to educate yourself.
