Why are there sick people in the world?


By TOM COYNE, Associated Press Writer

MISHAWAKA, Ind. (AP) - Police searched for a mother and her 4-year-old daughter Friday after the woman was captured by a department store security camera punching the girl in the head and shaking her violently.

"We want to get the girl the medical attention she needs," Police Chief Anthony A. Hazen said. "We want to get her to an emergency room and let them examine her. That's our biggest concern right now."

Police identified the woman as Madelyne Gorman Toogood, age 24 or 25, and the child as her daughter Martha Toogood. Toogood was charged Friday with battery to a child.

Her attorney briefly telephoned police Friday, investigators said. Police did not know the attorney's location.

"The attorney is aware of the serious nature of this, and we hope that the discussion will lead to the woman turning herself in," St. Joseph County Prosecutor Christopher Toth said.

The video, broadcast nationwide, showed the woman placing her daughter onto the back seat of a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot of a Kohl's store, then pummeling, slapping and shaking the girl for several seconds.

The Sept. 13 episode happened after the woman left the story angry over being refused a cash refund, authorities said.

A doctor who saw the tape said the child could have suffered head, neck and brain injuries, said Mike Samp, a police investigator.

Toogood's sister, 31-year-old Margaret Daley, who authorities say was with her at the store, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of failure to report child abuse.

Police said relatives of Toogood were not helping with the search.

"They've said they are going to cooperate, but so far they haven't given us any ironclad information or produced the little girl," Hazen said. He said several locations were under surveillance.

Police received more than 1,000 calls about the video, which was first aired Wednesday night by local stations seeking the identity of the woman and girl.

One person who tipped off police was Lyn Johnson, principal of Walt Disney Elementary School in Mishawaka, where two of Toogood's older children attended school. Johnson said she recognized the woman immediately and called police.

She said that she did not know Toogood but that the pupils were good students. "They are wonderful children," she said.

The vehicle shown in the video had Texas license plates, and police eventually found it at a Mishawaka apartment complex. Police said it was not registered to either of the women shown on the tape.

The sickest part was she looked around the parking lot before beating the crap outta her baby......I hope she goes to jail for a very long time

"....But all I ever hear from you is "

You don't have to look far to find evil in this world.
