Molly Jane Roe is one of the sickest individuals you could come across. It is inconceivable that she had a baby under her care.

Yet, when she committed her crime at the age of 24 in 2011, the media and the public couldn’t help but comment about her looks. One website even describes her as “undeniably beautiful.”

Would you think she is “undeniably beautiful” if you knew what exactly she did to a 17-month-old baby?

Here is a look at the unimaginable crime of Molly Jane Roe.

The crime

In 2011, Philip Murley Jr had a girlfriend, 24-year-old Molly Jane Roe. Roe was from Bells, Tennessee, and was described by everyone who met her as a dark-haired beauty.

The relationship between Murley and Roe became serious and soon Murley marked his Facebook status as “in a relationship.” He was looking forward to becoming a family again with Roe.

Murley and Roe weren’t just a couple. They also had children from previous relationships. Murley had a 17-month-old baby girl named Maleeya Marie Murley. Baby Maleeya’s biological mother had primary custody of her but Murley still had visitation rights to his daughter every other weekend.
