Woman Duct Tapes Her Baby and Leaves Photo on Cellphone

In a case which goes down as both stupid and disgusting, a photo of a duct taped baby was discovered on a Philadelphia woman's cellphone by police. The woman went to the police after suspecting her identity had been stolen.  When she was scrolling through the photos on her camera, they noticed a photo of a duct-taped and gagged baby, which happened to be her 18-month-old child at the time. When police went to her home, they noticed the residue from the duct tape was still on the chair. The mother, Caria Ferguson has been arrested and the custody of her child will be granted to another family member.
