Mikel Fetterman, Another CYS Failure
Mikel Fetterman was 3 years old. His mom was more concerned with the weiner of the week than his safety, and now he is dead. Keith Lilly was watching Mikel while his mother, Teresa Fetterman, slept and claims that Mikel fell off the couch so he gave him Tylenol and when he woke up the next morning Mikel was unresponsive.
911 was called to the home on March 26. The mother said she was sleeping and the boy was left in the care of Keith Lilly. Lilly allegedly told officers that Mikel fell off the couch. He said he gave the boy Tylenol and then found him unresponsive and they called 911 around 1 AM. When Mikel got to the hospital, doctors discovered that he was covered in bruises, had a skull fracture, brain bleed and fractures all over in various stages of healing. They also allege that there “new injuries and old injuries of not only physical trauma that were suspicious of sexual abuse”.
Neighbors had called Child & Youth Services for weeks before Mikel was killed. They reported that he had black eyes, and yet he remained at the home with his piece of shit mother and his abuser. They reported that they suspected he was being sexually abused, and he was still left with his piece of shit mother and his abuser. They reported them to animal control and Teresa Fetterman was allegedly forced to sign over an emaciated dog to animal control, and yet no one came for Mikel to rescue him from his abusers.
There are other photos and screenshots at this Facebook group for Mikel and some of them were very hard to read. The people who were supposed to protect this child did nothing. https://www.facebook.com/pg/mikelarmy/photos/?tab=album&album_id=102381861449679&ref
Mikel Fetterman was 3 years old. I’m just going to go ahead and say out loud what everyone is thinking — this little boy didn’t stand a chance. The adults in his life failed him. His mother stayed with a man that had a violent past and who was alleged to be involved in the death of his ex (who he beat) in Florida. Yet Teresa Fetterman decided that the dick du jour was more important than keeping her baby safe. It is also noteworthy to mention that the family wasted no time in setting up a GoFundMe for hospital expenses when this child was and is eligible for Medicaid that covers hospital expenses.
I’m disgusted by all of these people who were supposed to protect this child. They all failed him and while I am always on the fence when it comes to the death penalty, I think I can honestly say that when it comes to adults who abuse and kill little kids I’m okay with the death penalty. Being able to have something that evil in you doesn’t go away. Those people don’t need to breathe the same air as we do and Keith Lilly needs to be held responsible for the death of this child and so does Teresa.
UPDATE: Keith Lilly, Jr. was charged with criminal homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of endangering the welfare of children, one count of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child with serious bodily injury, and several other charges.
