The parents of three-year-old Renna Willams (also reported as Reena Williams) were reportedly high when the little girl wandered away and drowned in a canal near their home. This update adds an even more tragic piece to the already sad example of bad parenting and child death. It's already been reported that Jenna Danish and Thomas Williams Jr. are charged with child neglect regarding the death of the little girl, but this detail proves that they truly were being negligent.
This is far more than an example of a mother and father failing to pay extremely close attention to their child. These two were high and according to reports they had a history of drug problems as well. Parents of the year Jenna and Thomas put the need to get effed up ahead of the life of their own three-year-old child.
Renna Williams (or Reena Williams, depending which is actually accurate) never stood a chance with these people and that's a damn shame. Sadly, her story is far from the first and will certainly not be the last of similar drama. Children are born to families like this every day in the United States, and some of them suffer horrifically at the neglect and abuse of their drug addicted parents. Hopefully the judge makes an example of this little girl's mother and father to help put a stop to this damaging lifestyle.
