2 Babies bodies found in closet - Michele Kalina - Reading PA

Neighbors are in disbelief as they learn someone who they saw every day is in custody for allegedly hiding the remains of two babies in her closet.
SNIP
"Two weeks ago they pulled something out," said Emily Perez, whose aunt
lives across the hall from Kalina's first floor apartment in a high-rise
building in the 700 block of Court Street in Reading.

"The coroner came, pulled the stretcher out with a wooden box with a plastic container.

"On July 29, Berks County detectives said they found in Kalina's closet the remains of two babies that could be anywhere from 20 weeks in gestation to almost a month old. . "We were upset," said Perez. "We were waiting for two weeks.

We were asking, but no one would give us any answers or anything. That's your neighbors."Perez said she saw Kalina almost every day and that she never really had any visitors."I don't know how they could do that to their child," said Perez.Other people in the building said they had no idea.

Kalina worked for Interim Health Care, a senior home care medical staffing
company, which had no comment on her arrest or how long she worked
there.

But on the streets, people have their own perspectives."It's
just scary because I try to protect my kids the best that I can and you
should be happy that God's giving you kids," said Beatrice Medero.

Investigators still won't say how or why Kalina had the remains or whether the bodies were related to her.Kalina is being held on $5 million bail.

The French seem to do this quite a bit for some reason. Clearly, something other than normal fear/rejection was at work here.

Why didn't she just get her tubes tied? It would have made her life much easier.

Probably because she'd have to explain it to her husband. If they lost a child, he might have still been holding on to the hope of having another child before it was too late.

There had to have been at least a thousand better ways to handle this than kill the babies. :mad:

There are actually those on the left who believe this should be legal.

Crazy women=wild, crazy sex.

That's my theory, anyways, after working in CFS for 23 years. I've seen it a thousand times, crazy but ugly woman has kids by 4 or 5 different men, and at least one or two of the men are fairly normal. It's got to be about the sex.

Noon's right.

My ex had a propensity toward unbalanced women. I've been the sanest one in the bunch. Once, a cop who had to release him over a bogus kidnapping charge had this warning for him, "Son, crazy pussy'll kill ya. The sex is great, but they'll kill ya."
