dad kills adopted baby

A father is accused of inflicting fatal head injuries to his 18-month-old daughter just two weeks after adopting her after believing she was “Satan dressed up in a baby grow.”

Fitness instructor Matthew Scully-Hicks from Delabole, Cornwall, together with his husband, had been providing shelter to Elsie the last eight months. They have recently finalized the adoption process only for Elsie to die due to a brain hemorrhage.

According to BBC News, Scully-Hicks sent text messages to his friends about his struggles in caring for the baby. He wrote that his daughter was “having a proper diva strop about it all, which is annoying.”

In another message, he said that he was “going through hell” and that Elsie’s mealtimes and bedtimes were his “worst nightmares.” He similarly described the baby as a “psycho.”
