Emma Barker’s Mother Booked On Suspicion Of Murder








~Emma Leigh Barker



1-year-old Emma Barker’s body was found dumped in tall grass along side a Los Angeles highway. Her mother, Stacey Barker, 24 has been under investigation since March after she told police her daughter was kidnapped.

Barker told police someone knocked her out as she was putting Emma in the car and when she woke up, Emma was gone. She later recanted that story and said Emma died in an accident.

As police continued to question Barker, they noted several inconsistencies in her story and her story continued to change over time.

While Barker did have head injuries when police responded to her assault report, detectives are trying to determine whether the injuries were self-inflicted.

Barker was booked Thursday on suspicion of murder and is being held on $1 million bond.

Good Lord, this is becoming an epidemic in this country!

What a beautiful child Emma was. There are so many beautiful children lost and murdered. I wish I knew an answer to this horrible problem.

It just makes you sick. What happened to the maternal instinct?
I hope they put her away for the rest of her natural life.
At least she will have a life!!

I could not wait for this idiot to be booked for her daughters death. I have been following the newspaper to see when she would be charged. I can not believe they did not keep her in custody for all the lies she told about the incident. Stacey had taken up so much time of all of our emergency personnel becuase she lied. I was even scared to take my son to the park she said she was attacked at. What is this world coming to. This girl is SICK!
