The 15-Year-Old Who Stabbed Her Baby | The Oprah Winfrey Show | Oprah Winfrey Network

Jessica Coleman was a cheerleader, a star athlete, an honor student, and only 15-years-old when she stabbed her newborn son in the chest. The next day, Tom, the baby’s father, disposed of the child’s body in a nearby quarry. For 6 years, police made it their mission to bring the person responsible for the crime to justice before arresting Jessica and Tom. In 2006, Jessica spoke to Oprah via satellite from the Lorain County Jail in Ohio, where she was serving a six-year sentence for the death of her baby boy. For more on #oprahwinfreyshow, visit

  1. Wtfudge seriously SHES a liar 🤥
    She killed that poor innocent human life
    Argh 😤 these kids
    He looked deformed because u squashed him when you slept over him 😪😪😪😢
    Some ppl don’t deserve kids and other ppl spend $$$$$$$$$ huge money to have kids
    This is just tragic and that baby sadly didn’t have a chance

    They should give her life …. laws too soft 🤔

  2. NEVER SAW THIS VIDEO BEFORE. THIS GIRL AT THE TIME THIS WAS AIRED DID NOT SHED ONE SINGLE TEAR…REMEMBER SHE STATED THAT WHEN SHE FOUND OUT THAT SHE WAS PREGNANT…HER LIFE WAS OVER. WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IS…WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR THE YOUTH TO KNOW…IF YOU HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS YOU CAN BECOME PREGNANT? AND THEN BECOME SHOCKED WHEN IT HAPPENS. NOW WHAT DO I DO? OH YEAH…KILL THE BABY!!!

  3. This was one of the most horrific videos I've watched on the Internet so far….I cannot deal with how little that girl cared about this innocent baby…..

  4. She stabbed him to take away his pain??? What kind of warped thinking is this!? Her mom was a nurse, I'm sure she would of understood and helped care for the baby. He's at peace now atleast.

  5. So her mom was a nurse and described as more of a friend. Then why not go to her for help? This is all kind of sick. If I found a sick animal on the road that looked to be in pain, my first thought would not be to stab it and put it out of its misery. Certainly not my BABY! Omg.
