A Jacksonville, Arkansas man is accused of murdering his daughter by putting her in a shower that was so hot her skin was burned and slipped off.

On Dec. 18, police responded to a call about a suspicious incident involving a child. Derek Shockley told police he gave his 1-year-old daughter a shower and her skin started to slip off after the shower.

The child was transported to a local hospital’s critical care unit. Doctors classified her as a level II Trauma and said her injuries were caused by intense heat that burned two-thirds of her body.

The girl died at the hospital on Dec. 27, after developing septic shock and organ failure as a result of being scalded with hot water.

Anyone who kills a child in such a vile way needs to die. There was another post posted several weeks ago I couldn't bring myself to read. The title alone was too much for me. I shut my phone off and cried. Why could there be nobody to save these poor kids.

I was sadly right
When officers arrived at the scene, they spoke with 20-year-old Derek Shockley, who said he gave his 1-year-old daughter a shower after she soiled herself.

Shockley says after the shower, her skin started to slip off.

Authorities say the child was transported to the Arkansas Children's Hospital Critical Care Unit.

At the unit, she was listed as having level II trauma injuries from the intensely heated water.

Police say that the water in the shower reached 153 degrees.

The heat of the water caused burns to two-thirds of the child's body.

The child died on Dec. 27 as a result of her injuries. She developed septic shock and organ failure from being scalded by the hot water, say officials.

Did a shower really cause this level of injury or did he plunge her directly in hot water first, then blame the shower?
I am afraid to crank up my hot water heater to a level to get 153 degrees in a shower. What amazing appliance do these people have that I don't?
I'd love to wash some laundry like nasty work clothes and some men's smalls at that temp. But I never set the hot water tank beyond 140 and that was for an hour for a special task. No children ever visit this farmstead.
These skin peeling injuries are never an accident because anyone who burns a child so badly knows exactly what is wrong the nano-second the baby touches scalding water and screams.

... the water in the shower reached 153 degrees.
That's one damn high hot water setting! Proper home hot water temperature is 120° and never above 140°.

By the fucking way, this may come as a surprise to some, but probably not to my DD brothers and sisters, but Derek was Arkansas Most Wanted just 2 months ago.
