When I first read this news headline I thought it had something to do with suffocating from a popsicle stick; and that seemed odd. The actual story is about a ten year old Arizona girl, Ame Deal, who was found dead in a padlocked car trunk.
The whereabouts of her mother and father are unknown. What is known is that the young girl, along with 12 other youth aged children, were in the care of Deal’s grandmother, aunt, and two cousins.
Deal’s cousin Samantha Allen, 23, and her husband, John Allen, 23, admitted putting the child in the trunk and padlocking it, authorities charged the couple with first degree murder. John Allen was allegedly angry with Deal because she had taken a popsicle from the freezer, AZFamily reports.
The other children have been placed in Child Protective Custody.
