Amanda Hawkins Arrested - Left Children In Hot Car

A Kerr County woman was charged with child endangerment after her two daughters, ages 1 and 2, were apparently left inside a car for a period of about 15 hours, according to a statement from Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer.

The two girls passed away on Thursday at University Hospital. They were identified as Brynn Hawkins, 1, and Addyson Overgard-Eddy, 2.

According to Hierholzer, the children's mother, Amanda Hawkins, 19, showed up at Peterson Regional Medical Center with the victims, claiming they had collapsed while running around and smelling flowers at Flat Rock Lake and may have gotten into something poisonous.

But investigators said they later determined the children were intentionally left in their mother's car overnight, until about noon on June 7th, while Hawkins and a 16-year-old male friend were inside another friend's home.

Sheriff Hierholzer said that at some point the 16-year-old went out to the car and slept for a while but then went back inside the house. Hierholzer told us he also understood someone inside the house could even hear the children crying and told her to bring them inside the house but she didn't. He said the children were without food, water or restroom visits during their 15 hours in the car.

Glad Texas has the death penalty. Never seen a better case for it than this one. If you could do that to a child, let alone your own children, not sure the world has any use for you.

Capital punishment can not be pursued in this case. At the most (even though I agree that this is murder plain and simple)
it is voluntary manslaughter, criminal neglect and child endangerment. A murder conviction because premeditation can not be proved.

Premeditated or not those kids did not deserve this. How selfish can you be? Those others heard those babies and didn't do a damn thing to help those innocent little angels. They are all guilty. If you knew they we're out in the car and you chose to ignore them then you are guilty too. Period. How could you know those babies are out there crying and hungry, thirsty, wet, hit and alone and just ignore their cries? You told the so called mom to bring them in yet u didn't bother to do anything about it when she didn't bring them in. You are just as guilty.

Seriously!!! Are they "mental"?? It is an off the charts level of cruelty to just sit by and let that happen to anyone (or anything), let alone, helpless children!

Everyone at this "Party" needs to get the DEATH PENALTY.
