Chilling New Doc About Skylar Richardson Is Landing This Month

Chilling New Doc About Skylar Richardson Is Landing This Month

A new true crime is coming about the harrowing case of Brooke Skylar Richardson, a high school senior who went on trial after buying her newborn baby in her family's back garden.

Richardson, a cheerleader from Ohio, gave birth to a baby in the upstairs bathroom of her family's home in Carlisle in May 2017.

Pregnant out of wedlock and fearful of her parent's reaction, the then-18-year-old told no one about her situation and no one knew she was expecting a child except the gynaecologist who told her the news.

The child's father was not her boyfriend but someone she had had a fling with the previous summer.

Richardson was accused of smashing her new born baby's skull with a rock before burying the baby - who she named Annabelle - in her parents garden, with flowers marking the spot.

The truth only came to light when she went back to the same gynaecologist two months later to get birth control pills and she confessed to what she had done.
