Father Admits Killing Daughter For Receiving More Attention
A father has confessed to the murder of his daughter in a fit of jealousy.
Ryan Lawrence, 25, pleaded guilty to killing one-year-old Maddox with a baseball bat before burning and dumping her body in a creek.
Lawrence said he was jealous of all the attention his baby daughter began receiving after she began suffering eye cancer, leading her to carry out the heinous act.
He was arrested three days after the murder in Baldwinsville, New York.
Maddox’s remains were recovered 36 hours after she was reported missing.
It’s understood the little girl’s mother, Morgan Lawrence, alerted authorities after discovering a note from her trouble partner which outline he intended to hurt their daughter.
He is due to be sentenced next month; if convicted he faces between 25 years to life behind bars.
