Mother Accused of Tormenting Infant, Sending Videos of Child Abuse to the Baby's Father

Kellie Park
A 20-year-old Connecticut mother Kellie Park was arrested June 20 and remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail, while her child is in the care of the Department of Children and Families, according to police.  Police said she sent videos of herself abusing and tormenting her 10-month-old daughter to her child’s biological father.

Erick Vece, the child’s father, stated that Kellie Park sent him text 55 text messages in a span of about an hour, threatening to bash his daughter’s face in and the videos to his cell phone of her actually doing so, the arrest warrant stated.

Vece told police he had gone shopping that morning and left his cell phone in the car. When he returned to his car, there were 50 to 55 text messages, which he did not view until he arrived at his father’s residence and parked. When in his father’s home, Vece said he viewed 7 videos of Park abusing his child. He showed the videos to his father who immediately called police, according to court documents.

Excerpts of the text messages police say Park sent to Vece include: “I’ll [expletive] break her face,” “I’ll beat her [expletive] face in,” “call the cops do me the favor fat pig,” and “I love abusing this kid,” according to the arrest warrant.

Police were able to extract the videos and text messages Park sent to Vece’s cell phone. Police confirmed there were a total of 8 video messages, 7 of which the child can be seen in, according to the arrest warrant.
Investigators say in each of the videos, the child was being tormented, berated, and assaulted by Park; the child appeared to be traumatized and seemed to be crying in pain as a result of Park’s actions, according to the arrest warrant.

According to the arrest warrant, the following videos were seen by police:

Video #1 depicts the child sitting on the floor while Park says, “eat stuff off the floor, this is what your dad wants to make me do.”
Video #2 depicts the child sitting in a high chair while Park asks her if she is hungry and pours/throws food on her.
Video #3 depicts the child sitting on the living room floor with her diaper off. Park says “here’s some more garbage, have a ball with no diaper, maybe you can wear a [expletive] diaper, I don’t care, play with cigarettes.”
Video #4 depicts the child standing up behind a gate as Park kicks the gate on top of her causing the child to fall under the gate. Park says to her crying child “don’t you get it, your father doesn’t care, so guess what, I’m not gonna care.”
Video #5 depicts a woman with a knife in her right hand making a cutting motion across the inside portion of her left wrist. There was no blood visible. Vece told police the woman in the video has the same tattoo as Park.
Video #6 depicts Park taking the child out of the high chair and putting her in a pack and play. Park then shakes the pack and play back and forth. At one point, Park is heard saying “shake it up” then tilts it to one side causing the child to fall out onto the floor. Park then puts her foot on the child’s chest.
Video #7 depicts the child on the floor while Park is pushing the child with her feet and says “roll over, you not worth a half cigarette, not worth [expletive], roll over…yeah your father says I’m not worth something.”
Video #8 depicts Park pushing the child with her feet telling the child she makes her life miserable and that she hates her. Park says “stop before you get hurt, stop, I’m gonna hurt you,” at which point Park freaked out.

Before police received a call about the videos, investigators learned Park had been sent to the Yale New Haven Hospital after she threatened to kill herself talking to herself -- an afterthought and adroit use of acting skills, most likely, to quickly create extenuating circumstances. (While the Police may not say it, we can.)

Badass girl Kellie Park is likely to act an "abused" Mommie now.
The 20-year-old mother fled when she was released from the Hospital, but was later tracked down in New Haven by Connecticut police officers assigned to federal marshals, the New Haven Register reported. Park was subsequently charged with risk of injury to a minor, cruelty to persons, threatening in the 2nd the degree, and assault in the 3rd degree. She will appear in court on July 11, 2012.

Officers were not aware of the abuse at the time of Park’s hospitalization.
Authorities said the child is now in the custody of her maternal grandmother, who is also seeking custody of Park’s 2-year-old, the Courant reported. Park faces charges of assault, risk of injury to a child, cruelty to persons and second-degree threatening.

Park and Vece also have an allegedly violent history. Vece was arrested in March on charges of domestic violence, and an Order of Protection was issued on behalf of Park against Vece, court documents show.
