It all started with this:
[Text: I usually try to stay away from "TRIGGER WARNING" posts, but this has me pretty livid, and it's a perfect example of how despicable the hardcore anti-vax side can be. Content in comments.
Compare the following two articles:
Lansing man charged with murder, 1st-degree child abuse in death of 3-month-old daughter
Father Jailed For Life Without Parole After His 12 Week-Old Daughter Died After Receiving 8 Vaccinations!]
So of course, I had to read the two articles., and then dug deeper.
The short version:
A 19 year old unemployed woman leaves her baby with her mother and moves in with a 38 year old man who has a spotty employment record, and who has several drug-abuse convictions. About a year later, she gives birth to his daughter, her second child. Within months of her second daughter's birth, she leaves the baby's father and returns, with the infant, to her mother's home. However, she continues to see the father several times a week.
On one of those visits, she leaves the baby alone with the father. Ninety minutes later, the baby is at the hospital with severe head trauma consistent with multiple blows. The baby dies that night. The father is arrested, tried and convicted of murder and child abuse.
Sometime between December 5 2013, the end of the trial, and January 15 2014, the father's sentencing date, the website VacTruth, Christina England, and a retired Australian pathologist, Michael D. Innes, convinced the mother that her baby wasn't murdered by the father, but had some sort of underlying medical condition that caused the baby's skull fractures. The baby's receipt of the normal 2-month suite of vaccines is blamed for the baby's death. The mother announced at the father's sentencing hearing that she had "medical reports that conflict with trial testimony" and that she would continue to work to prove his innocence.
The only evidence for "vitamin deficiency" contributing to blunt force head trauma is in the minds of Michael Innis and Christina England.
Updated to add: I had forgotten I had reviewed Michael Innis's 2013 paper, Autoimmunity and Non-Accidental Injury in Children last year. It is a very, very poor paper.
