Social Media Helps Authorities Find And Arrest Parents Of Abandoned Baby

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Authorities in South Carolina have identified the toddler who was found abandoned on a stranger’s doorstep with a note on her diaper that read “Call DFAC” or Division of Family and Child Services, and arrested her parents.

After four days of investigating, the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said that the child is 4-year-old Zoe Brown of Marietta, Ga. Brown’s parents — 31-year-old Alonzo Brown and 37-year-old Tongela Denise McBride — were arrested Friday night on charges of unlawful neglect of a child.

Chad McBride, the public information office for the Anderson County Sherriff’s Office, said that having the girl’s story shared through social media and the news media helped lead to the discovery of the toddler’s identify and the arrest of her parents. According to Chad McBride, who is not related to Denise McBride, posts on the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page featuring Zoe Brown’s picture were shared more than 2 million times.

  1. please sand me that litle girl I will rase her cose her parent don't need her…


  3. If you are unable or unwilling to love and care for a child then the best thing to do is try to find someone who will. Perhaps they did not go about it the right way, but I don't think these people are monsters. They could have killed the baby and tossed the body. But instead they tried to get her help because they knew they was unable to do anything for her. The government need to adjust these laws and parents wouldn't feel they have to abandon the baby. They should legally be able to give it up parenting all together forever.

    • Agreed, better that she has a chance to grow up in a loving, supportive atmosphere than with people who obviously don't want to be parents.
