We are nothing without the foundation of family.
The benefits of being part of a family make people truly rich. It is the trust in being able to rely on family that can get you out of trouble or get you desperately needed help, even when you don’t even have to ask for help. An intuitive mother, who had to contend with her daughter’s unspeakable planning, came through as a grandmother and saved the life of her innocent 11-week-old granddaughter.
Nineteen-year-old Sarai Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother is a loving family woman from Fort Wayne, Indiana, who was always welcoming of her family’s needs. Sometime before January 2017, Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother allowed her son, his fiancée, and their 11-week-old daughter — her granddaughter — to stay in her home.
The mother of 19-year-old Sarai Rodriguez-Miranda, from Fort Wayne, Indiana, says she began to sense the resentment her daughter had towards her 11-month-old niece. But it wasn’t until the intuitive grandmother noticed the breast milk color of her granddaughter’s baby bottle that she realized the extent of the 19-year-old’s anger.
The messages outlined detailed attempts to poison and kill her 11-month-old niece. “”Why didn’t that baby die dude. I hope she dies. I don’t feel bad about it … I’d never be suspect I know but I hope it works,” she allegedly wrote. It’s not clear if Rodriguez-Miranda’s boyfriend responded to the messages or tried to stop her. After reading the disturbing text messages written by her own daughter, Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother found a picture of a mortar and pestle with a crushed, white powder residue.
Toxicology analysis would later find that the mortar and pestle were used to crush nine Excedrin pills, which Rodriguez-Miranda had spiked the tall breast milk bottle with. Such an amount is enough to kill a full-size adult and confirmed Rodriguez-Miranda’s attempt to kill her newborn niece.
After her murder plot was revealed by her mother, Rodriguez-Miranda disappeared and was a fugitive from police for almost a year. On Sept. 28, 2017, Rodriguez-Miranda was found by police in Bay City, Michigan, and charged with attempted murder.
