Feeling sorry for *Tiona Rodriguez? Well, don't waste your time. You should feel sorry for her 2-year-old son and the full term dead baby boy stuffed into a bag, the real victims of this mentally unstable young woman. Tiona, 17, was caught shoplifting at a Manhattan Victoria's Secret store. A security guard at the Herald Square store saw the teen and a friend stealing hundreds of dollars worth of "sexy undergarments" and stopped them. When the police came, they discovered the dead baby in Tiona's bag...wrapped inside a plastic bag and tucked underneath all the merchandise she'd just taken.
Tiona claimed that she'd suffered a miscarriage the day before and didn't know what to do with the baby's body. The truth is that the baby boy was born alive! The mother of a 2-year-old didn't realize that stuffing a dead baby into a plastic bag and then into her purse and carrying it around wasn't the best option? After being taken out of the store in a wheelchair (suddenly she couldn't walk?) she was taken to the hospital, while her friend, Francis Estevez, was taken to the police station. Both were later charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. Tiona is still at the hospital under police watch.
Sources first believed Tiona had been about six and a half months pregnant when she gave birth, but later they believed she was very close to term. As shocking as the actual discovery of the baby was, Tiona's behavior before and after the incident can only be described as chilling. On Wednesday, she complained of "cramps" on her Facebook! Was that before or after she delivered? She also bragged about having a job interview that day at Chipolte!
Her neighbors say she's a good girl and that they had no idea there was a problem. Police searched her home along with the home of Estevez. They believe that Tiona gave birth at her house. So, not only is the young woman morally bankrupt, so is her friend. Now that the truth is out, that the little baby boy was born alive, hopefully the folks feeling sorry for her will see her for what she really is; a monster.
*Tiona's real name is 'Tiana'
