Renna Williams was found dead in a canal 25 yards from her family home. She had been playing with her parents' dog when she wandered away. Her cause of death has been ruled an "accidental drowning," but it seems like the family displays a pattern of neglectÂ—according to neighbors in the area. In fact, the mother refused to call and report her missing one of the times. Can you believe that?
A neighbor claims to have seen the three-year-old tot wandering around barefooted across the street from her home with the family dog. So the neighbor returned the child to the homeÂ—only for her to wander away again. About an hour and a half later, she was missing. Jenna Danish, the child's mother, was urged by a fisherman in the area to report the child missing, but she outright refused, so the father did it.
It's really strange that a mother would refuse to report her child missing, but considering the habit of letting her run unattended all over the place, and off of their property, it's not that surprising. This was a blatant pattern of neglect. Why wouldn't Jenna Danish report her child missing after she had been gone for over an hour? Do you think she should be charged for child neglect leading to the death of her daughter?
