31-year-old Shawn Michael Foltz admitted to police that he would spend the day at work thinking of twisted ways to torture his baby daughter due to his frustration with her crying.
Among other horrible acts of torture and abuse against the baby girl, the buse include rubbing hot sauce into his daughter’s eyes and preventing her from breathing until she turned blue.
But that’s not where the list is ending, it includes him snapping his daughter’s face with a towel, using a wooden spoon and a piece of vinyl flooring to spank her, spraying her face with hot water, throwing firecrackers at the baby girl, and rubbing hot sauce and cayenne pepper into her eyes.
The abuse occurred between April 10, 2017 and May 30, 2017, on which date the baby girl’s mother brought her daughter to the Essentia Health emergency room.
The medical staff discovered the 4-year-old to suffer from dark bruises over both eyes, red all over her back, and other bruising on her body.
The mother of the girl told authorities on the scene that the baby was under the care of her father in the evenings when she was at work.
