In Texas, the alleged murderer Sweet Cherry Ann Halliburton is a suspect in the death of three infants. Joseph Young, Halliburton’s ex-husband, tried to convince investigators to re-open an investigation into the 2007 death of his baby boy, Eiam Enchrist Halliburton. But Fort Worth authorities refused because the infant’s death was not ruled a homicide and the investigation remained closed. In fact, authorities assured Mr. Young that Eiam died from sudden infant death syndrome – SIDS. In fact, the 2006 death of Halliburton’s infant baby girl, Krystal, was also attributed to SIDS.
News stories report that Ms. Halliburton recently confessed to smothering her 6-week-old baby boy named Loyal in Missouri. According to this news story, Halliburton has birthed four children, two girls and two boys. Her oldest daughter is alive and lives with Joseph Young. Her second daughter, 7 month-old Krystal died presumably from SIDS according to the investigation. Then her son, Eiam died from SIDS at the age of 4 months-old. And now her 6 week-old baby boy Loyal has died. And she has allegedly confessed to intentionally smothering the baby.
