Nigerian Nurse Allegedly Murdered Disabled Toddler With Hot Water In Queens New York, Oluyemisi Adebayo Arrested At JFK Aiport While Fleeing To Nigeria

A Nigerian Nurse was arrested yesterday just as she was about escaping New York to board a flight to Nigeria days after she allegedly killed a disabled toddler.

On Thursday April 21st, 2015, the grandmother of the deceased toddler, Gardite Mondesire hired 54-year-old Oluyemisi Adebayo to look after her disabled grandchild but sadly, the baby died after being submerged in hot water.

The suspect, Oluyemisi Adebayo told police detectives that she noticed Naomi Mondesire’s leg was peeling off after she placed her in bath water but police faulted her claim during their interrogation session.

She was accused of being inconsistent in her narration of the incident.

Adebayo was accused of submerging the disabled child in a 130 degree water for 30 seconds. The victim was said to have died of thermal injuries to 50% of her body on Monday the 25th of April 2015, 3 days after doctors performed an emergency life-saving surgery on her.

The suspect was arrested on Wednesday around 7am while trying to flee the US to Nigeria.

She was detained briefly before Policemen were called in to arrest her.

According to the information on her LinkedIn page, she has over 16 years of experience as a licensed practical nurse.

If convicted, she could face up to 25 years in prison.

May the soul of the innocent baby rest in peace and may God comfort her mother and grandma.

    The woman is a Licensed Practical nurse (LPN), not a nurse practitioner.

    People, whether she is a witch or not….i will not be surprised if she was under a spell to end her life in jail. Her enemies might have been trailing her and finaly caught up with her. In most African-involved cases, they are more than lightly spiritual. May God help us all.

    I think we need to educate ourselves a little bit before we start shifting blame on this woman. If you live in Western World, you will how situation works especially the law. To start with let me take your mind away from the wrong notion that this woman intentionally killed that toddler. No, things happen sometimes and we all made a mistakes. To my understanding, this woman was trying to bath the baby and accidentally turned on more hot water. Everybody knows that we are in partial winter time and you have to take shower using warm water which has been placed in individual houses or apartment. The way the parents of the toddler presented the case is like the woman bath their baby with hot water at about 300 degree. That woman is a license practical nurse why would she want her client died?. She makes her living doing that. The reason why the woman was trying to escape is because of the law. She knew she will be heading to jail even though that is a mistake, United States law will still hold her responsible for that little kid’s death. Trust me, I have seen folks Doctors, Nurses going to prison because of mistake like this. My opinion could have been the same as other people in this forum if I have not witness situation like this before. A woman quit her Nursing job when she escape from being prosecuted for the death of an handicap man but in that case the family of the deceased preferred not to file charges. My prayer is that most of us in diaspora, may God continue to protect us especially at work by averting unexpected calamity which my turn our life upside down Just in a second. I really empathized with this woman because she never expected this.

      @ Jilo, you are the only that makes sense. When I watched ABCNews, a woman was interviewed. Dont know who she is but definitely she new the accused. She said the accused told her (in sorry state) that it was an accident. That she felt bad.

      You are so correct. The father of the toddler was like “I don’t buy her story”. I understand they have the right to reject her tales. They are the victims here. I also understand the accused trying to escape.

      Unfortunately, she’s going to jail. Her sentence may be reduced if her Lawyer is good at it. If she can prove “accidental”, if judge can sense that her action was not pre-meditated, her sense will be reduced. But trying to escape from he country will make the case against her look terrible even though they understood.

      The thing is, this is just noise so far, by the time (in months ahead) they do more investigation, as long as the toddler’s death was not intentional, I don’t think it will 25yr in prison. But dont even blink for a second she will be freed. She’s going to jail. No matter how tiny her sentence may be. I knew right away when i heard the news it was not intentional. I work in medical as well and I know how frustrated it can be.

      Dont know how her family feel right now. May Allah console the victim’s family and accused as well. Amin
