Holly Anne Jones is currently in prison in Texas for child abuse.
HERE’S WHAT SHE SAID HAPPENED
Holly said that ‘she started noticing weird bruises appearing all over her 2 year old daughter after a trip to the beach. The toddler’s hair also began falling out in clumps.’
The concerned mother from Texas decided to take her daughter to the emergency room. Once the hospital personnel got a look at the child, they decided to call the law.
When asked how she ‘typically disciplines’ her daughter, Jones explained that she generally uses the “time-out”method. Continuing on to say ‘especially in response to “temper tantrums.” Jones claims that her daughter occasionally hits herself in fits of anger.
When the little girl’s body was examine, she was found to have bruises all over, sores in her mouth and on her body, and an extensive amount of hair loss.
THEY SAID. SHE SAID.
The authorities claim these findings as evidence of “severe discipline.”
Jones, however, says she is not guilty of inflicting any of the wounds on her daughter. Her boyfriend backed up her statement insisting that he had never seen any violence toward the little girl from her mother.
Jones did offer this explanation. She told authorities that “the bruising was due to a ‘demonic presence’ in her house.” She also stated that the child could have bruised herself by hitting herself in the face. And she added that maybe her boyfriend was causing the child’s injuries.
She later recanted that statement. She said that she really never saw anything like that from her boyfriend toward her daughter, so she was sticking with her original ‘demonic possession’ story.
The boyfriend’s father also stated that the little girl’s bruising was caused by “spirits.”
Holly Anne was arrested.
