A few weeks ago, I did a post about the Tanisha Monique Howard, the woman in the above mugshot who was arrested after her young children were found dirty, hungry and alone in an Atlanta area motel room.
As with most Atlanta related mugshot posts, there’s always someone who runs across the post who actually knows the person involved. This one is no different.
Read what a friend of the woman in the mugshot above revealed…‘Ms. Keisha’ states the following in a comment left on Howard’s ‘Mugshot Mania’ post last night:
Hello all…sad to say but I “know” this “woman”. She has 8…yes 8 children total, 5 of which already lived with her mother. She has multiple “baby daddies” who are either in jail, out in the streets or quite possibly she doesn’t know who the fathers are. She is on some type of drugs, which I don’t know, but I won’t speculate, but before this even happened, the two 5 year olds were being neglected. I met her when they were about 1 or 2 years old.
I never even knew she had kids until I went into a room I thought was the bathroom but it was actually a room with the two kids hidden away. The room had no bed, the kids were filthy, hair matted, diapers not changed and they couldn’t or wouldn’t speak. It was really sad. I was torn on whether or not to report her but a family member of mines took the kids for a day and washed them, fed them, and changed their clothes.
To this day, I regret the fact that I didn’t report her. While she’s in the next room laying on a nice, clean bed, her kids sleeping on the floor with no cover…SMH….I just don’t understand why you keep having kids when you already didn’t have custody of the first 5 and prob didn’t want the two that followed.
When I heard she was pregnant again with the now 8 month old baby I cringed….I thought things had changed since I saw pics of the kids on FB looking somewhat clean and happy….guess not…I just pray she can find salvation in prison since she’ll be there a loooooong time. She is already on parole for another unrelated violation and I’m sure they’re gonna throw the book at her….
pray for this lost soul…
This is such a sad situation. Clearly the friend is having issues with not reporting the woman to the authorities sooner.
What would you have done?
