Woman Angered With Child Overreacts, Situation Takes A Tragic Turn

Alicia Goemaat, 20, is a Seattle woman who was charged with the death of 17-month-old Drue Lehto. Goemaat was watching her boyfriend Derek's son on September 27 when he was out running errands.

Maria Blanco, Derek's mother, told Inside Edition "He just keeps crying, 'She killed my little boy! She killed my little boy!' We knew the baby as being a healthy, happy little guy. We're in a state of disbelief."

Goemaat told authorities she got angry when Drue began fighting with her 2-year-old son over a toy. She said she kicked him so hard, in his stomach, that it knocked him to the ground. She reportedly kicked him again before putting him inside his playpen.

An autopsy found the young boy died of abdominal trauma and internal bleeding. The medical examiner's office concluded his death was a homicide. Seattle PI reports the boy's father tried to administer CPR upon arriving home, but the child died before medical staff arrived on the scene.

Blanco said of her son "He still drops to the ground in disbelief. Derek was a good father to that little boy ... That little baby was Derek's life and his light. He was always making sure he had the best."

Initially, Goemaat denied knowledged of the incident until police arrested her on Oct. 1. Goemaat is in police custody in Seattle's King County Correctional Facility, where her bail has been set to $1 million.
