The little girl and 18-month-old boy were being watched by a 16-year-old with learning disabilities at the time of the horrible accident.

Jermane Johnson, Jr., 18 months old, was killed after being drowned in a bathtub by a 5-year-old girl. “I just got asked the hardest question that no parent should never answer,” the victim’s father, Jermane Johnson, Sr., posted on Facebook. “What kind of caskets do I want to put my son in.”

Kansas City police first thought it was an accidental death, according to The Daily Mail, but the 5-year-old indicated she knew what she was doing. She told them she didn’t like the child because he “made too much noise” and “cried too much.”

The tragedy occurred Friday, June 3, when the children were being supervised by a 16-year-old with learning disabilities. The 5-year-old dragged Jermane into the full bath tub and proceeded to drown the little boy.

Jermane was reportedly spending a few weeks at this house.

Officers on the case are baffled and feel this may be the first time in history where a perpetrator committed this severe of a crime at such a young age. They are currently looking into other aspects of the case.

“I’ve been here 26 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this,” Juvenile officer Mary Marquez of Jackson County Family Court told the Kansas City Star.

So, Hollymoms, who should be blamed here?
