Police: Dad Fatally Slammed Girl's Head
Police said a 17-month-old child, allegedly injured by her father when she wouldn't quit crying, died today.
The little girl had undergone surgery for severe head injuries on Friday and had been listed in critical condition since then.
Bossier City police said her father Lance David Thamm, 34, is accused of pushing the child's head into a doorjamb with violent force after he became frustrated with her because she wouldn't quit crying.
Thamm had been jailed on attempted murder charges. Those charges could be upgraded to first-degree murder charges now that the child has died.
Fire Department paramedics were called to a Bossier City apartment Friday in response to a call that the little girl was unresponsive. The mother came home after talking to Thamm on the phone and then called 911.
Police say Thamm had told the mother that the toddler was hurt and he didn't know what happened.
Police began investigating after medical personnel at Christus Schumpert Hospital alerted them.
That poor little girl. How could he harm his daughter? That's rediculous! I don't like people like this. I've said that before and I'm sticking to my word. What do think about this?
