Heartbroken Father Reports His Wife to Police on Christmas Eve

When Jerry Allen came home from work on Christmas Eve, he didn't expect to walk into what he saw.

The North Carolina father could do nothing else except to call the Lincoln county police right before midnight to have them come to the decrepit home in Dallas, N.C. This is because he saw his 6-month-old naked, alone on the sofa and unresponsive--although there were no signs of physical injury. The infant was dead by the time Allen had arrived home--deceased for an unknown amount of time.

The pained father then went looking for his 30-year-old wife, Stephanie Amber Tillman and their two other children. He found the three in the back bedroom, where the children, 3-and 4-years-old were also naked, but alive.

The mother, on the other hand, was extremely intoxicated on prescription drugs and had been high the entire time Allen was at work. This meant she was incapable of caring for the three kids. In addition, the home was covered in human and animal feces with trash everywhere.

The baby was left in these conditions, naked on the couch, and died due to neglect. It's possible that Allen had an idea that these types of conditions don't get built up overnight. Tillman was arrested and charged with the child's death. Her mug shot showed facial injuries she received during a fight in another incident, fueled by drugs.

Allen was not held responsible, but it's hard to imagine he had no idea of what was taking place at his home.
