On September 29th of 2010 Wesley Lowe filed for protective orders, on behalf of the child, against the child’s mother, alleging that the mother had temporarily given up her rights to the child until an investigation into alleged abuse was completed.
Lowe has been arrested for negligent homicide of the child, as well as for possession of drugs.
Lowe stated that the mother, although told by Child Protective Services not to have contact with the child, showed up at the child’s school in Bossier wanting to know why she wasn’t there, and then went to BCPD in an attempt to get the child.
The Protective Order was granted effective until October 26th and then extended until November 16th and then again until January 4th, 2011 and finally until January 25th.
On December 22nd, the mother filed for contempt of court against Lowe, stating that he had not allowed the court approved supervised visitation at Louisiana Boardwalk. A hearing on this motion was set for January 25th.
And now the child is dead and the father has been charged with negligent homicide, as well as possession of Schedule II and Schedule IV CDS. It appears that the system was doing its best to protect the child, acting on the information at hand.
The information at hand, of course, did not include the fact that the father had drugs in his home. A lot more will be developing in this case and we will post information as it becomes available.
