First of all, after West blamed two black teens for the murder of her baby boy, her 21-year-old daughter came forward with suspicions that her mother could actually have been the one responsible for the infant's death.
Ashley Glassey told CBS News in March, that her mother has serious mental health issues. These include a diagnosis of bi-polar with accompanying schizophrenic tendencies. West also talked with the media about how she was removed from her mother’s care at the age of 8, because of abuse and neglect in the home. Immediately after the shooting, Glassey said West began asking questions about how long it would take her to collect the insurance money. West’s daughter also told both media and police that her mother made conflicting statements to her, regarding the child’s death - including different stories about who was shot first. West’s inconsistencies and suspicious behavior caused her own daughter to tell police and reporters that she suspected her mother was not telling the truth about how the infant was killed. CBS News reported several days later that police had not followed up with Glassey, nor had they taken her statement. A follow-up call by the press to the police, was never returned.
It has now come to light that both West and the baby's father, Louis Santiago, were found with gunshot residue on them on the day of the killing. There could be explanations for that, but it seems highly suspect. And when you think of it, why didn't they shoot her in the head, as well?
If one or both of the parents (who are no longer together) were responsible for the child's death and not the two teens, they deserve the most severe punishment possible.
