Foltz allegedly admitted to police that he would think about ways to harm the baby while he was at work.

Dear County Attorney Melton,

A baby reportedly suffered horrific injuries in a shocking case of abuse. The baby was reportedly tortured with hot sauce, fireworks, and asphyxiation. We demand justice for this innocent baby.

Foltz reportedly confessed to police that this was not the first time he’d hurt his 2-month-old daughter. Per police reports, Foltz admitted to pinching her, blocking her airways, and using hot sauce and cayenne pepper to irritate her mouth, nose and eyes. He also reportedly used a towel to snap the baby’s face five times.

This horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. What a piece of shit…throw his ass in jail…..forever!!!!

  2. This isn’t Punishment of a child! What he is doing is trying to kill her!

    • Diane Petrillo Diane Petrillo says:

      Exactly! Why would any two month old baby need to be ‘punished’? They are innocent and this psycho needs to be dealt a real hand!

  3. This is a psycho and needs proper psychiatric help. That or a blasted good hiding. Don’t let him anywhere near children- `he is a bully and a coward. Who in their right mind would work out ways to hurt a baby? I don’t suppose he’s planning to hurt a real man-oh dear no- he wouldn’t be so ready with his fists then-the mindless coward.


  5. Frances Raab says:

    Give this man the death penalty, he’s a sociopath Monster.

  6. Juliana Jordan-Huber says:

    This guy deserves death. Our society should have zero tolerance for child and animal abuse. If penalties were stiffer these tragedies would be less frequent.

  7. Castrate him so that he cannot produce another child because I am sure some lawyer will find a lesser charge & he will be released back into society.

    Better: hard labour for the rest of his useless life!

  8. Jacqui SKill says:

    Put the monster in jail..solitary confinement forever!!

  9. Anne Moeller Anne Moeller says:

    Do to this man- monster what he did to this innocent child and then MORE! Let him suffer horrific pain and them let him rot!!

  10. Selena Brooks says:

    He deserves LIFE and charges are not enough for his bitch ass.

  11. sic bastard should be tortured to death!!!

  12. madeline mackie says:

    why should we pay for him to have a good life i jail, 3 meals a day, free drugs, showers, etc put firecrackers in his penis and light them, with no medical help around, see how he likes that

  13. Lynn Juozilaitis says:

    Skin this POS alive, SLOWLY!!! Die a slow painful death you monstrous, repulsive creature!!! UGH!!!

  14. Rosslyn Osborne says:

    Words like Castration, severe punishment, psychiatric treatment, never released… are what comes to my mind, that is still trying to digest how or why a father would want to do this to his own flesh and blood?
    Wow! Did not the wife/mother see or suspect heinous cruelty to this precious little soul?
    Truly gobsmacked!

  15. Lisa Zarafonetis Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    This piece of sh!t son of a bitch doesn’t deserve to breathe our oxygen❗️?
    Hope he rots his ass in hell❗️?
    Signed & shared ?

  16. Since I’m against Death penalty I can’t see it in another way than sentience to life in prison without parole. As some said, he shall never come close to a child whats so ever.

    Even though I can understand the sense of anger this crime generates, I still consider that a fellow human being should also deal with such abominable crime in a civilized way, because if not, you are not much better than the one who commits the crime.

    As I see it, the aim is for us to develop for the better, and not accept medieval behavior by seeking vengeance.

    Two wrongs doesn’t automatically make one right.

  17. Patricia Dumais says:

    “Foltz allegedly admitted to police that he would think about ways to harm the baby while he was at work.”

    The man is mentally ill and must not be allowed any access to the child. Furthermore he must be evaluated to determine a possible risk to the general population.

  18. First tie the PIECE OF SHIT up!!! Then torture him for weeks on end. When he cries or screams or begs, laugh and toss a bit of acid his way nonchalantly. Oopsie did I get a bit in your eyes? Peel his skin off his filthy carcass, then toss the remains into a wood chipper. Of course since HE IS POISON, places the contaminated pieces in a plastic bag and into the garbage. 🙂

  19. Oh, and another thing, is the so-called mother of this innocent child A SIMPLETON that she’d allow this scumbag near that child? TAKE THE CHILD AWAY FROM THEM BOTH!!!!

  20. Denise Kastner says:

    This assault was not from frustration of crying baby. He actually thought of ways to hurt her while at work. How demented does a person have to be to hurt a child? I don’t believe in the death penalty but this is an exception. That precious baby, so new to this sad, sad World.
