Melissa: Skyelynn Never Had A Chance

Tyler Jamison is only 18. I imagine he may have thought his life was over when he heard his girlfriend was pregnant. It’s hard to have a baby and, extremely hard when that child is crying and you can’t figure out why. It was hard for me and I’m 31 years old. I have all the resources in the world at my disposal and I have a wonderfully supportive and helpful husband. Still, it’s hard when they cry and you can’t stop it. But, that does not excuse what Tyler Jamison admits to doing. Tyler told Spokane Police that for at least the last month, he would get Skylynn to stop crying by either pinching her windpipe closed with his fingers or cupping his hands over her nose and mouth. He wasn’t stopping her from crying, he was stopping her from breathing/Melissa Luck/Beyond the Headlines, KXLY. More here. And: Melissa’s story here
