Breaking News Update: Tyler Dasher's Mom Arrested In Connection With His Death

Wed, November 16, 2011 2:45pm EST by 6 Comments

The Missouri 1-year-old’s mother is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder!

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch confirmed that Shelby Dasher, Tyler Dasher’s 20-year-old mother, is at the St. Louis County Justice Center! A police source said authorities think she killed her son after she “became very, very angry.” What could POSSIBLY make somebody that angry?!? So disturbing!

Shelby was taken into custody at 5:42 a.m. Nov. 16, not even 24 hours after she first reported that Tyler was missing. Police took her to the wooded cemetery where the body was found, and later escorted her to the home.

Although Shelby is in jail, she still hasn’t been formally booked — and because she’s on a 20-hour hold she can be released if charges aren’t made within that time!

Shelby claimed she woke up at 11 a.m. to find Tyler missing after putting him to bed at 10:30 p.m., and mere hours later the body was found nearby. Hardworking investigators labored overnight interviewing Shelby, Tyler’s father and grandmother. Police won’t see how the boy died or any details on the arrest, but St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch told reporters that whoever is responsible must be “a sick person.” We agree!

This case brings up too-close-for-comfort similarities to missing Lisa Irwin. Like Lisa, Tyler disappeared in the middle of the night. Now that his mom has been arrested, will the Kansas City police turn their search on Deborah Bradley?

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Should Deborah Bradley be a suspect?

She didn’t wake up until 11am with a baby? More than 12 Hours went by without her checking on him? That is unbelievable!

She was out drinking until 230 am, her mother was baby sitting. Her mother left around 7ish in the morning for work. Baby Tyler woke around 9 something & Shelby got up because she heard him. She became very angry and repeatedly hit him until he died. Took the body to a wooded area & dumped him. Went home & went back to sleep then woke up to call the police to report him missing. She’s a poor sad excuse for a human being….

the only similarity with all the cases where a parent has killed their own child is that they say the child was stolen (caylee anthony, lisa irwin) these “parents” actually think it would take the focus away from them..sad cases but for the little angels that are taken too soon over negligent “parents.”
