A New York father plead guilty to killing his toddler daughter, who survived a bout of eye cancer survivor. Police say the SICK DAD beat the toddler with a wooden baseball bat before burning her body and dumping her remains in an upstate waterway.
Ryan Lawrence, 25, pleaded guilty Thursday to first-degree murder in a plea deal with Onondaga County prosecutors. Lawrence admitted beating to death his 21-month-old daughter Maddox outside Syracuse in February.
Authorities say he burned the girl’s body in a fire pit, then tied the remains to a cinder block that he dumped in Onondaga Creek in Syracuse.
The child’s body was found by police divers about 36 hours after an Amber Alert was issued for the missing child.
Authorities issued an Amber Alert for Maddox on February 21 after Lawrence disappeared with her.
