Christian Clark was charged with criminal homicide after admitting to smothering her child and sending evidence of the dastardly deed to her son’s father
Clark who lives alone in her apartment with Andre and her 2-year-old Angel, initially denied responsibility for her son’s death. She told detectives her Andre was healthy, that she found him unresponsive on an air mattress just before calling 911.
Detectives took her to police headquarters for questioning. When the cops later obtained her boyfriend’s cell phone, they recovered a disturbing stream of text and video messages between the two, that foretold her actions.
Beginning Tuesday around 8:25 p.m. and continuing to 11:12 p.m.,Clark accused Price of cheating on her, threatening to take her anger out on the children.
Detectives said Clark’s messages were indicative: “stating that she had killed her son and some video messages show[ing] her son’s lifeless body,” according to the arrest affidavit. Yet another text message said: “I don’t want these kids here,”
In one text she said: “Ya kids ain’t safe here i don’t want them here…Answer me or im going to jail for child endangerment.”
Before sending the video, authorities say, Clark sent a message saying, “They’ll blame you for leaving them with me lol they talk about how I have issues & needed help & ya son wont even be remembered now that is actually sad.”
She follows up with: “I’m sure it’ll hurt me once I’m sitting in jail.”
Admitting her horrible deed she texted: “& you got all the evidence you need so I can’t even say he suffocated in his sleep or say idk what happened…”
A later text stated: “I really snapped this time.”
“Try to wake him up I said hold him,” Price said, according to Post-Gazette
“Its okay im dialing 911,” she responded.
“You need to if he dead,” Mr. Price wrote.
“I am … Sorry i did this i stg i didn’t mean to,” she wrote, according to the paper.
