Caution: This case will make your blood boil……..Not only did 3 children suffer, with 1 of them dying, but the mother that is responsible cannot get past the fact that she has a $500,000 bond and no criminal record and she doesn’t belong in jail. I kid you not. She doesn’t feel bad about her children suffering, just herself. The villain, Tiffany Klapheke:
Tiffany’s crime: Her husband was deployed overseas to risk his life for our country and she decided that the 3 kids were just too much to handle, in addition to her husband being gone and no one offered to help her (according to her), so she left 3 small children alone to go through hell on earth, while she did whatever it took to get her break. It was just too much for her with potty training and all and she was so tired of changing those sheets.
Tiffany is 21 years old and the children are 6 months, 22 months and 3 years old. The 22 month old child is dead. She died from extreme neglect. She was severely dehydrated and malnourished. She had chemical burns on her lower body from staying exposed to her own waste so long. The other 2 daughters were in ICU, but have now been moved out of ICU. The State has custody of them.
What does Tiffany have to say for herself?
“When I went in there she wasn’t alive and I couldn’t wake her up and now I’ve lost both of my children and I don’t have any family and I haven’t seen my husband,” said Klapheke.
“I know people hate me and I don’t understand, but it was not my intention. I just wanted a break for my own sanity, that’s all. I didn’t mean for it to go so far,” said Klapheke.
“Nobody took a second to ask me if there was anything they could do to help or if I needed anything and I wish they would have,” Klapheke said.
“I’ve never been in trouble in my life. I’ve never even had a speeding ticket and now I’m stuck here on $500,000 bond,” she said.
“I’m not a criminal. I wouldn’t hurt people. I just need help and a chance to make life right. I don’t think I deserve to be here,” Klapheke said.

I, me, me, I………………My life and on and on she goes……She never exhibits any remorse for Tamryn, as she lost “both” of her children, not all 3. To add insult to injury, Tiffany is only charged with 3 counts of injuring a child. Personally I think they need to add 2nd Degree Murder to that, or at the very least, Manslaughter.
I may sound very mean at this point, as I have already seen where people are blaming this on her being so young and having 3 small children alone and post partum depression and on and on, but what people fail to realize is that her husband is in the Air Force and she had access to free daycare and she had access to counseling and at the very least, she could have taken those babies to her husband’s commanding officer’s office (during the day, while it was open) and dropped them off, with a note saying she couldn’t handle them, or the nearest fire department or the nearest police department. There is NO EXCUSE for this! NONE!
Mentally ill people know what they are doing, even if they are not thinking right, they still know right from wrong and they still know what they are doing, so even if she is mentally ill, there is no excuse. The only way we will ever put a stop to people using this as an excuse, is for it not to be one. My heart breaks for those children and their suffering. What a shame they were born to such a selfish, evil mother.
