Mum of baby found dead in the fridge writes heart-wrenching note
"Take care, my darling. Mama and papa will join you in heaven..."
“My dear Adam. It must have been cold inside the freezer. It is alright, when you are in Heaven, you will get many beautiful things."
"Remember my advice, take good care of yourself there."
These achingly sad words were written by Malaysian mum Farrah Madihah Othman, after her little baby, all of five months, was found dead in his babysitter's fridge, wrapped in a napkin and placed inside a green zipper bag.
His tiny body had been stuffed into the freezer.
The case has sparked shock and disbelief in the region.
On 3 July 2018, Adam was reported missing from his babysitter's house. She claimed that the baby had been picked up by a man who she thought was his father.
Distraught dad Mohd Sufi Naeif Mohd Fauzi had then lodged a police report. He also uploaded the little one's picture on social media in the hope of finding him.
Police suspected foul play and decided to search the babysitter's home in Taman Nakhoda, Batu Caves. What they found was horrifying beyond words.
A postmortem examination revealed that little Adam had suffered internal bleeding in the brain and a cracked skull. Police have arrested the babysitter and her housemate.
According to the New Straits Times, Adam was placed in the babysitter's care only a week ago. The family had come to know of her through Facebook and friends.
We cannot imagine the suffering of Adam's parents right now.
Scenes of mummy Farrah Madihah Othman carrying the lifeless body of her baby outside the hospital are truly heart-breaking.
“My dear Adam. It must have been cold inside the freezer. It is alright, when you are in Heaven, you will get many beautiful things," she wrote on Facebook.
"It's okay, my darling. You will enjoy all the beautiful things in heaven. Mama and Papa will join you and we can have a bubble bath together.
"Remember my advice, take good care of yourself there.
"Thank you friends, family and Malaysians for making efforts to find Adam and pray good things for him."
Our heartfelt condolences go out to this family. May little Adam's soul rest in peace.
May justice be served.
