Fox2Now.com, which is based out of St. Louis, Missouri, is reporting that two-year-old Addie Cook has passed away as a result of what is described by local authorities as “wrestling moves” being performed on her.
The child’s mother, 19-year-old Cheyenne Cook and her boyfriend, 24-year-old Richard Gamache, Jr., have been arrested and charged with the murder of the child, who passed away days after Gamache is said to have performed the maneuvers on her, which, according to the official police report, included the “Batista Bomb.” The report further states that as a result of these maneuvers, the child began to suffer seizures and was taken to the hospital by emergency medical services on May 16th, but sadly passed away just a few days later. Local authorities further state that they have also discovered additional evidence of prior abuse on the child by Gamache, as well as digital evidence that the couple attempted to cover it up. Cook, meanwhile, is said to have done nothing to intervene to stop the abuse or seek medical attention for the child.
Gamache has been charged with abuse of neglect of a child and is currently being held on a $500,000 cash-only bond. Cook has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and is currently being held on a $2,500 cash-only bond.
