Since the first day we reported this case, we knew that the child's mother wasn't telling the truth. It's sad that that's the first thought that crosses our minds these days but, it's true. Children are being killed by their mothers, and their mother's significant others, at an alarming rate and it's sickening.
Hazana's mother, Tiaundra Christon, and her boyfriend, Kenny Hewett, have given statements to the police that are now being deemed as "probable cause" statements. Further details have come to light in the disappearance, and death, of 2-year-old Hazana Anderson and we must warn you, they are unsettling.
"According to investigators, Christon and Hewett were staying in a hotel room in Houston, Texas from October 17 to October 20. On the night of October 19, Christon told investigators Hazana left with Hewett to get food. When they returned, Hazana was crying and Hewett was upset, hitting her with a belt "causing whelps to her legs, arms, and face."
Christon said Hewett told her to discipline her child, so she beat Hazana "a couple of times" with the belt before Hewett became dissatisfied with her and began hitting the girl again. The couple eventually realized Hazana was unconscious, but Christon told investigators she believed she had a pulse. Christon and Hewett took Hazana to the bathtub to revive her, but were not successful. They then attempted to warm the girl's body with a hair dryer, but only caused burns to her skin."
Let's back up a bit to where the details disappear, the medical report mentions a sexual assault but neither adult made that indication. In our opinion, we believe the child was crying when she returned from getting food with Hewett because he assaulted her on that trip. The fact that he then began to beat her, and told her mother to beat her as well, is absolutely deplorable!
What kind of mother allows someone to beat their child to death as they join in the melee? How could this woman drive around with her child's body in her car for days, dump her in a lake, then report her missing 5 days after she passed away? From the jump her story was fishy! Who leaves a child in a stroller and goes back to the car for a bottle?
"Two witnesses later told police that they did not see or hear a child in the area at all. Police also found a women's handbag in a trashcan near Christon's car containing a toy baby doll wearing Hazana's clothing, which Christon could not explain. She was subsequently arrested by College Station Police for filing a false report and abandoning/endangering a child."
In the end, we are all demanding justice for little Hazana.
