Lesbians Murdered Their Autistic Child. Film at 11.

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — An 8-year-old girl with autism that was missing in Gwinnett County has been found dead, and now her mother and the mother’s partner have been charged in her death.

Investigators told Channel 2′s Tom Regan that they don’t know how long she had been there.

“It’s extremely painful. We all have family, and we recognize the innocence of an 8-year-old child,” Gwinnett County Police Chief J.D. McClure said.

On Sunday, the girl’s mother, Brittany Hall, claimed her daughter disappeared from the motel.

Police with K-9s fanned out in the area of the motel.

At the same time, investigators said they continued questioning the mother and her partner, Celeste Owens.

Based their inconsistent statements and conflicting evidence, investigators concluded they were lying.

“At that point, our investigation transitioned from a missing person case to indeed a homicide case,” McClure said.

Police have charged Owens with felony murder, and Hall is being charged with concealing her daughter’s death. Police say she eventually helped investigators locate the body.

They’re now trying to determine how the child was killed and where. At this time, investigators told Regan they don’t have a motive for the murder that started out as a missing person’s case.

“We worked extremely hard and, unfortunately, these were not the results we had hoped for,” McClure said. “My heart goes out to the extended family of Amari Hall.”

Amari’s mother is also charged with filing a false police report. Both she and her partner also face multiple counts of child cruelty.

The medical examiner is working to determine the official cause of death.

Two other children living in Brittany Hall and Owens’ home, a 6-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy, have been placed in DFCS custody.

People who live in the neighborhood where police found the little girl’s body say they are stunned.

Channel 2′s Ashli Lincoln went out to the Stone Mill Trace neighborhood Tuesday afternoon where she found yellow crime scene tape still up from the area where investigators say Amari’s body was found.

Neighbors who live nearby said they were heartbroken over the discovery.

“I just seen a lot of police cars and detectives and once I came back through from the store, they had to duct tape the whole crime scene, and I was sure it was a body over there. But an 8-year-old child? I don’t even know how I slept that close to that child outside like that all night, but I’m just crestfallen for God that they found her body,” one neighbor said.

Investigators are working to learn why Amari’s body was left there. Neighbors told Lincoln if Amari was still living they would have taken her in.

They waited until she was 8 years old to get rid of her? Ladies, you could have put her up for adoption as late as 4 years old. I guess murder was the logical step?

Life doesn't always work out on one's time line, R1, but you do what you can with what you've got.

I do wonder if it was an accident and they just lost their temper at the autistic child. I know personally I wouldn’t be able to handle a severely autistic child.

R1 I see you’ve never been around a profoundly autistic child before. Forget the feel-good stories you hear in the media. Those are the functional ones, who may just be a bit awkward or eccentric. Many autistic children are intellectually disabled as well. What’s cute at 4 isn’t cute at 8. At that age, they are bigger and stronger. They get violent (I’ve seen horrific damage done by an 8 year autistic child in the form of injuries to the mother, destruction of a home). If they aren’t potty-trained, they engage in coprophagia. They can wander and leave home. They perseverate on one thing, breaking down if that need isn’t met rightvaway. They have frequent meltdowns, where they cry and scream for hours and nothing can calm them down. Daily chores become impossible to do, forget going out anywhere. Other children are neglected, there’s depression at play, etc.

So in a daily scenario like that, with no respite care, I can see situations where a parent might lose it and the end result being death. I don’t judge parents of autistic children lest I walk a mile in their shoes. You need superhuman strength and patience and that’s a lot to ask.

We know how lesbians kill their victims: scissoring them to death.

That’s what I also fear happened, R9. I can easily see someone chronically sleep deprived and at their wit’s end losing patience and beating them until they finally shut up. (To put it bluntly)

One thing I've learned about violent females is that they are different than violent men in at least one respect. They turn violent for ridiculous reasons. Violent men more often than not don't turn to violence until they've been pushed too far. Violent females seem to get crazy over things that could easily be dealt with. And when females get violent there is usually no getting them under control unless you knock them out, or kill them.

Yes. Like when dinner isn’t on the table fast enough.

"Violent men more often than not don't turn to violence until they've been pushed too far."

Yep, like when they have an affair with a coworker, and their wives and children are an impediment to their new relationship. Or when they get drunk and just want to beat or kill someone.
