The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that Melissa Kelley, 33, is accused of taking her baby to a house in Deltona where the mother of her ex-boyfriend’s new friend lives. The incident occurred on Sunday evening around 10:39 p.m.
“My daughter is with her ex-boyfriend or whatever,” said Patricia Tillman on an emergency call. “And she turned around and just left her baby behind.
Tillman didn’t know Kelley, but Kelley explained to Tillman that her ex-boyfriend Clayton Zinck was with Tillman’s daughter. Kelley allegedly claimed Zinck would pick the baby up later, but that never happened.
Tillman allegedly said Kelley left the baby in a dirty diaper, leaving an empty bottle, two dirty napkins, and a half-full box of formula. Kelley is also reported to have told Tillman not to touch the baby because he had scabies.
“She just pushed the baby in the door and left,” Tillman said to the 911 dispatcher, according to Fox 35. “I don’t know her name. I have no idea who she is.
Zinck’s parents were contacted but refused to pick up the baby from Tillman’s house and, according to a police report, refused to wake Zinck.
According to the Volusia County authorities, Kelley sent text messages to her family members saying, “Please don’t let me throw this baby in the trash.” Kelley also claimed that she wanted to kill herself after Zinck decided to break up with her, stating that she would use drugs to kill herself.
Volusia County MPs called Kelley’s cell phone about suicide threats and found her hidden in a wooded area in a wooded area in Astor.
The Children and Families Department is currently looking after the child as the authorities have been unable to contact the father.
Kelley was arrested and charged with deserting and neglecting children.
