Billy Bob Thornton's Daughter Arrested For Child Neglect In The Death Of A 1-Year-Old

Billy Bob Thornton's eldest daughter has been charged with child neglect!

29-year-old Amanda Brumfield was babysitting a 1-year-old child back in October, when the child fell from her playpen and passed away due to a fractured skull and subdural hematoma.

How awful!!

Brumfield waited two and a half hours to call the police because she believed the small child was perfectly fine after her fall, even though her tongue was bleeding. She described the baby as "happy and playful."

Thornton's daughter decided to take a nap on the job but woke up to a horrifying surprise when she picked the baby up - the child's body was limp.

So, so sad.

No matter how minor you believe a head injury may be, always have it checked out by a professional ASAP.

You could save a life!

    and its taken since october to just now get her arrested? she should have been arressted along time ago!

    Since kids fall so much at that age, it can be really tough to judge if it's serious. I would assume that the baby bit her tongue. Happened to my kids a lot when they were smal.

    I read elsewhere that it took so long to charge the sitter, because it really seems to have been an unfortunate accident, with no negligance on the part of the sitter. But the family was relentless in assiging blame.

    She killed the baby. You didn't put the entire story here Perez. I read about this yesterday and they said the child's injuries were INCONSISTENT with this ho's official "story". I hope she goes to prison.

    Thornton's daughter decided to take a nap on the job but woke up to a horrifying surprise when she picked the baby up - the child's body was limp.
    .
    She neglects her duties by taking a nap. The she finds the baby unconscious outside the play pen and then she waited 2.5 hrs to call for help!!!!!!!!!!!!
    .
    Brumfield waited two and a half hours to call the police because she believed the small child was perfectly fine after her fall, even though her tongue was bleeding. She described the baby as "happy and playful."
    .
    Recap; the baby fell out of it's pen and lays there, limp and unconscious with a bleeding tong BUT SHE claims the baby was "happy and playful"!
    Sure it was, limp bleeding babies are always happy and playful; aren't they?!!!!
    I hope they throw her in prison for this.
    I feels so sorry for the parents , this is terrible :(

    stupid fucking cuunt just like her father. she let the baby die cuz she was probably scared to be shown as a neglectul babysitter, though she obviously didnt want or expect death. still though, its her fucking fault. bitch.
    Poor little baby.

    Perez, she is alleging that the child fell from the playpen. That is her excuse, but it doesn't have to be accepted at face value. The truth may be far more sinister, and I'm concerned that even though the autopsy report has been available for some time, it's only now that the authorities have made an arrest.

    This is a case of child neglect AND possibly child abuse.

    Horrible!
    So sad.

    very sad….
    she looked the
    type///

    This is horrible and sad for all parties involved. I can't imagine losing my child anymore than I could imagine hurting one. Just terribly tragic all around…



  17. 17

    BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT…
    .
    AS WE HAVE LEARNED FROM NATASHA RICHARDSON'S DEATH, ONE CAN SUSTAIN A LIFE ENDING HEAD INJURY AND HOP UP AND WALK, TALK, LAUGH AND JOKE.
    .
    THEN THEY LIE DOWN TO REST, EVENTUALLY HAVE A HEADACHE (WHICH IS A SYMPTOM A BABY CAN'T COMMUNICATE), THEN DIE.
    .
    PLUS… KIDS AROUND THE AGE OF ONE ARE NEW WALKERS AND CLIMBERS AND ARE ALWAYS FALLING.
    .
    IT COULD VERY POSSIBLY BE NEGLECT, BUT IT COULD ALSO VERY POSSIBLY BE JUST A SAD SAD ACCIDENT.

    Heartbreaking….Poor baby!

    I can't imagine… how tragic. You learn when you have kids that they fall down and get hurt all the time, even if your the most vigilant helicopter mother. DON'T fall asleep an HOUR after they have had a hard bump. Duh! Matter of fact, no one should. Unforunately this stuff happens.

    So So sad :(

    That is so scary!!! I feel for that girl tho b/c I have a 2 year old and we were at the mall one day and she fell off a chair and hit her head on the hard floor. However, I rushed her to the ER, but I can see why the girl wouldn't have called 911. Even my daughters doctor said she was probably fine, but I (being the worry wort mother that I am) took her to the hospital. I feel so sorry for everyone involved in this tragic situation!!! My thought and prayers are with everyone involved.



  22. 22

    So sad. People with titles shouldnt get special treatment. She shouldve been arrested on the spot.



  23. 23

    OMG! Thats fucked up!

    This is a hard one. I am a mother of six, and my kids fall and they bump their heads. I know that you need to keep a close eye on a child when they bump their head, and not let them go to sleep. Of course if it is REAL bad call 911, or go to the hospital. BUT if the kid looked fine (other then tounge bleeding, which if a kid bites their tounge it can bleed, doesnt mean its serious) Then I dont think it is her fault at all.
