Elzbieta Plackowska has been charged with the murder of her seven year old son and prosecutors say she stabbed him over one hundred times - her horrible actions the result of a festering resentment towards her husband over the fact that he wasn't home often enough and also that she was forced to work as a maid - a job she felt was beneath her.
She also murdered a five year old girl whom she was babysitting in a terrible culmination of events that has shocked the community of Naperville, Illinois.
The worse thing for any parent is to find out their child's babysitter is totally and irrevocably irresponsible.
But that's almost EXACTLY what happened to one mother who went out gambling only to return and find that police had swarmed over her hotel room and arrested the woman she hired to babysit her five-year-old son.
After hotel employees noticed that a child had been left inside his room for over an hour - they called the police who talked to the boy and found out there was a babysitter who was supposed to be watching over him and so they went to look for her.
They didn't travel far before they found the 47-year-old woman, whose name is Stacey Kerres, in the middle of the hotel parking lot, and totally topless.
The cops described the woman as "lethargic" and "incoherent" and when they asked her if she had any idea where the boy was that she was supposed to be watching, the woman replied:
“I don’t even know where [the boy] is right now.”
We're no experts, but we're almost sure that if you're a babysitter and you have no idea where your kid is - you probably shouldn't be babysitting children.
Scratch that - you DEFINITELY shouldn't be babysitting children.
