Jessica Coleman was a cheerleader, a star athlete, an honor student, and only 15-years-old when she stabbed her newborn son in the chest. The next day, Tom, the baby's father, disposed of the child's body in a nearby quarry. For 6 years, police made it their mission to bring the person responsible for the crime to justice before arresting Jessica and Tom. In 2006, Jessica spoke to Oprah via satellite from the Lorain County Jail in Ohio, where she was serving a six-year sentence for the death of her baby boy.

This was premeditated! They had already decided to keep the pregnancy a secret no matter what. He would stand on her stomach to hide it which they knew could kill the baby. She said she had to pretend like nothing happened after and her and her bf decided no one could know. The whole thing seemed planned and she is a horrible liar

This is why you shouldn't force women and girls to bring their fetuses to term, especially when there are clear signs of no interest in motherhood. The infants, once corn, will get hurt or die from negligence sooner or later anyway. And then you just waste precious time and resources of the mom and taxpayers.

That's the longest bout of "dry crying" I've ever seen . I hope by now she has truly repented. Jesus help this young woman .

Sick evil monster I don’t believe her story. She will kill again it’s written all over her face. She’s cold if she was my daughter I would never speck to her again.

It's interesting how she carefully chooses certain wording to try to sound innocent, most likely for legal reasons. "I made a terrible mistake" , "I stabbed him just in case he was in pain... but I think he was stillborn", and "I'm really sorry". Fake, fake, fake, fake, fake. Truly remorseful people don't talk like that. There were no tears. Stepping on and stabbing a baby are not "mistakes"; that's either a personality disorder, mental illness or both. She shows no empathy or remorse.
Where are the tears that she's apparently crying? Wipes away nothing. Ummmm..

How can anyone do what she did? A newborn baby? The most beautiful thing in the world?! What isn't she capable of?! She says, "OMG, this can't be happening to ME again!?" Did I hear that right?! To her?!

She doesn't cry when she talks about the baby's birth...or about it falling into the toilet or how she fell on top of him. Or when she talks about stabbing him. Not at all.

She was being stupid. She should have told someone about the baby, they probably would have helped her. I do feel kind of bad for her though because she was scared. But it was still her fault, and she’s lying about something

Jasmine Leopard

I feel like she’s not being honest but also she was 15... it’s not ok but she was a child. She didn’t realize the full weight of her decision, and she didn’t fully understand her options. She was clearly scared if she hid the whole pregnancy. I’m not saying it’s ok, but I do have SOME sympathy for her.

I am a kid but is it normal to get a baby out in just a 30 minutes??
irena dubrovna
The firebombing of dresden, germany, or the nuclear bombings of nagasaki and hiroshima , or the genocide at a place they , "the whites" would later euphemistically call, Wounded Knee - it is not called " baby killing " when The State does it.
renee hedglin
you are a cold blooded murder.

i don't feel bad for just for the baby

She is psychopath
Sophie Jonkman
To be honest, I can't imagine the horror she went through. She was only 15 when she got pregnant. I'm 17 now and I wouldn't know what to do if I fell pregnant. It must've been horrible for her, but she should've seeken help. She could have gotten an abortion early on, now she had an abortion when the fetus was already born.

I have feeling her mother knew everything. Not only is she a nurse but in the beginning she also mentioned her mother was like a friend. Nurse and friendly mother didn't know for 9 months her daughter is pregnant?

No tears and she’s a lousy actress
Sienna Ballard
I was born with a cleft palate it’s when you have a whole in your throat making u not be able to eat properly
Rebecca Briggs
Female psychopath. It was all about her and her life. Her boyfriend stood on her stomach. She calls him "it". False emotion. Very scary person. Thousands of teen girls have troubled homes and pregnancies without doing any of what she did!! I have sympathy only for the baby.

Dez Mentz

My 2yr old pointed out his dead fish as dead. How can she not know if a baby is alive or dead? Idk maybe the pink skin vs. blue?? She allowed her bf to stomp her belly, too cheap for an abortion, to trashy for adoption. I see a narcissist that thinks she's above another life...period...I hope her rights to children are forever revoked. Put her bf in prison too
Vialmind Day ago
No tears , no remorse and only 6 years? this is sad, if she didn't want to keep the baby she could've put him up for adoption instead of killing him.
Lucy Hartnett
Nope 4mins in and I can't watch anymore.

Wait is it actually possible to hide a baby bump? Come on, we all knew abt Kylie Jenner although she kept it away from the media whole time
Akeem Nembhard
Stop with the lies!!! You're a monster and you should be spending the rest of your life in prison!!! Do you have any idea what this beautiful angel could have become??? He could have been the one to find the cure for Aids or Cancer etc. You robbed this innocent child of his future,i hope that even when you are out of prison you will still suffer everyday for the rest of your life.

This is so sad! But I am not buying her story! That poor innocent baby didn't get a chance, and her and her loser boyfriend tortured this poor angel entire her pregnancy! And her mama didn't know her own daughter was pregnant?? She lying!
Joanne Wilkinson
give her a break
That Girl Mads
Think of all the loving parents that could've cared for that baby if only she would've been a little more responsible.
That Girl Mads
I get that she was young, but as a mother how do you not ask for help for your baby? How do you not reach out to your parents for help? Either she has parents she didn't trust or a crazy boyfriend. Maybe both. I feel for her, but how do you let a helpless infant go through this. How do you let your boyfriend stand on your stomach holding your baby? How did her parents let her date a senior? Those around her failed this girl and she failed her son.

She fucken feels NOTHING
Katrina McCormack
She made a huge mistake. She knows that. I’m not taking her side but you don’t know what was going through this poor girls head. She was in shock and she was scared. I’m NOT saying what she did was right but no one can assume or say what she deserves or why she deserves it. Jail time, sure but in my opinion she doesn’t deserve to be hated on so horribly. She will have t9 live with this until the day she dies and she knows that. Leave this poor girl alone
