Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 21, 2014

Lisa Black, Chicago Tribune: The parents of a 3-month-old girl who died while under the care of babysitter Sarah Gumm have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Gumm and Care.Com, a nanny screening service that helped the couple hire her. Gumm, 35, was charged with first-degree murder in the 2012 death of Rylan Koopmeiners after an autopsy showed that the baby suffered a fractured skull. Nathan and Reggan Koopmeiners of Kenosha, Wisconsin, allege that Care.Com failed to perform an adequate background check that they claim would have revealed that Gumm had a criminal record, according to the civil lawsuit.

Prosecutors allege that on July 27, 2012, Gumm was changing Rylan's diaper when the baby became fussy and Gumm became irritated, striking the baby's head on the table. She then left the injured infant alone twice to buy 1.5-liter bottles of white wine from a drugstore, authorities allege.
