Amanda Hawkins a Texas mother has been charged with the deaths of her two toddler daughters after intentionally leaving them in a hot car overnight. 

Amanda Hawkins a 19 year old Kerr County, Texas woman has been arrested after allegedly leaving her baby toddler daughters in a hot car overnight for more than 15 hours so she could ‘have fun’ with her friends. 

Having left her children, Brynn Hawkins, one, and Addyson Overgard-Eddy, two, in the car overnight, over 15 hours, as temperatures soared above, 90 fahrenheit, police say the woman ignored them even as they cried for hours. In essence leaving the children to a death sentence.

By the time Hawkins eventually responded to her daughters, 15 hours after they’d been left in the car, come Wednesday noon, both girls were unconscious and in ‘grave condition’. The toddler daughters would be declared dead at a hospital the following day reported AP.

Told Kerr County Sherif Hierholzer in a statement: ‘This is by far the most horrific case of child endangerment that I have seen in the 37 years that I have been in law enforcement’.

Matters came to the fore when Hawkins left her two daughters in the car on Tuesday at around 9pm while she hung out with a 16-year-old male friend and others inside a house nearby, noted a news release from the Kerr County Police Department

When Brynn and Addyson cried during the night, the Walmart employee ignored them even when her friends alerted her. 

Responded Hawkins allegedly at one point, ‘No, they’re fine. They’ll cry themselves to sleep’.

The sheriff also said Hawkins’s male friend slept for a while in the car during the night but did not take the children out.

Police said, Hawkins’ husband Isaac was apparently not present when the mother allegedly abandoned her kids.

It wasn’t until Wednesday afternoon – when the temperature in Texas was as high as 92 degrees -,  that Hawkins went to retrieve her daughters, where she came upon both girls unconscious. 

Believing she would get into trouble, Hawkins decided not to report the incident, police say.

But after her male friend convinced her Brynn and Addyson needed medical attention, Hawkins finally sent them to the Peterson Regional Medical Center in Kerrsville, on Thursday. A day after they’d been found unconscious. 

Their condition was so bad they had to be transferred to the University Hospital in San Antonio, more than an hour drive away.

Despite best efforts, Brynn and Addyson died at 5pm, hours after they had arrived in the hospital reported Fox 29.

Police say Hawkins initially told doctors the toddlers ‘suddenly becoming unconscious’ after having smelled flowers at a local park.

According to KENS, prior to taking the children to hospital, Hawkins bathed and re-dressed the children in an attempt to cover up the fact that she had left them in the car for so long with no food, water or bathroom breaks.

Police investigated and questioned Hawkins before she confessed to leaving her children in the hot car.

The mother was arrested on Thursday and has been charged with two counts of abandoning or endangering a child, although police say charges may be upgraded since the children died.  Hawkins remains in custody on $70,000 bond.

If found guilty under the present charges, Hawkins could face up to two years in prison. 

A friend of Hawkins, Miriam Davis, who has known her since middle school, told KSAT 12 that she noticed Hawkins treating her children badly and regretting not calling Child Protection Services.

‘I hesitated for so long because I didn’t want her kids in the system,’ told Davis. ‘But I didn’t know they would die.’

‘I had the two most beautiful grandbabies,’ Hawkins’ mother, Alisha Eddy told mySanAntonio.com. ‘I don’t agree with what happened, what she did, but I love my daughter. I’m there for my daughter.’

‘We’re just bewildered and confused,’ Hawkins’ aunt said.

An autopsy into the cause of deaths of the toddler girls had been set for Friday.

Perhaps most vexing is where was the father? Or the grandparents? Commentators have questioned why the mother declined arranging alternative ‘baby-sitting’ arrangements unless Hawkins didn’t want to own up to the fact that she was seeking to ‘play hookie’ or simply couldn’t be bothered with the welfare of her children or even worse, had calculated the children’s demise ….?

According to the dailymail, Hawkins and her husband, Isaac had teen couple set up a Gofundme page last December to raise money for a new home.

‘I’m trying to raise money to get us into a home,’ her post on the fundraising site read.

‘We are living with my grandparents. We are both working but it’s still hard. Any help is greatly appreciated. We will be buying this house.’ 

The Hawkins’ fundraising goal was for $1500, but they are yet to receive any donations, the site shows. 

Police will decide whether to upgrade charges following findings being presented to a grand jury which may choose to indict the mother on murder charges.

    Miriam Davis…….You knew the children were being treated badly and you did nothing to help the innocent little toddlers ……You have to live with your inaction and you will never forget the fact that you could have saved these little kids……You may not be as guilty as the mother but are darn close.

    Did you even read the article? They stated ” Police will decide whether to upgrade charges following findings being presented to a grand jury which may choose to indict the mother on murder charges.”

    Murder 2 white children, receive only two counts of child abandoning and endangerment. Bond is set at $35,000 for each count. And white folks lose their s|-|I+ and get bent all out of shape about black people saying and forming Black Lives Matter. You know damn well that Shonquilla and Derrontae would be charged with murder and be denied bond… and that’s just for a tiny bag of weed. The American system is wholly criminal and corrupt.

  • So wasting.. such indifference toward two helpless angels…

  • Lane Kat

    Those kids wouldve been safer if she had left them in their beds at home. The fact that this isn’t yet considered premeditated murder baffles me. As a mother if I leave my son in his room longer than 10 minutes with him crying -I immediately comfort him while feeling guilty that he is crying. This woman is not stupid- she knew what the outcome of this would lead to. This is murder.

    Reminds me of Casey Anthony but she is stupider than Casey. Casey’s lies at least held up for a while.

  • Billy Moore

    God bless the little children. You know, i’m sorry, but this is a double homicide. She had to know that her babies would die in the heat. She should serve a min. of 25 yrs per child, “Mandatory”. “the devil has come down to man. He knows he has but a short time”…..seems to me that the devil is working overtime.

  • lisajean1970

    She’s a whore. 2 kids that close in age and they both have different last names? Whore. She wanted to get rid of the kids so she could go back to whoring.

  • Jo

    Wonder how she was raised?!? Apparently she was no where near ready or responsible enough to be a mother. And what does she do? Has not one, but two unwanted children.
    And where are the grandparents? No way did everyone close to this idiot woman and her kids, not see her for what she was. And yet not one person intervened for these poor children.
    Bet her parents had her young too and it is just an endless cycle for each generation to have unwanted kids.
    There is no excuse for her or any of them that knew those children were out there. Lock her up for a long time!!!!

  • Forced sterilization to start off with and at least 20-25 years for this crime. This self absorbed bitch should never be allowed to reproduce. Just wait she will probably get pregnant in prison. These kinds of girls have zero self control and low self esteem, take selfie’s constantly and it’s all about them!

  • Tue Hawj

    Estimated prison time is two years??? How the hell? She should be put away for at least 15 years per child that died from her idiotic endangerment.

  • Steven Hulbert

    Amanda Hawkins, you have no business having children, you obviously didn’t want any because “having fun with your friends” is more important than taking care of your small children. You need to go to prison for 30 years minimum and maybe a con will take care of you inside lockup.

  • Mika Eaglecloud

    I know plenty of parents who are Walmart Employees there was no need to add that “the Walmart Employees”, this idiot was selfish and if she didn’t want these two precious angels then she should have used some type of birth control.
    This is premeditated capitol murder and this warrants the Death Penalty no mercy should be shown or given to this “THING” because a “MOTHER” PROTECTS HER AND LOVES HER BABIES, SHE DOESN’T KILL THEM.

  • john jacobs

    Two beautiful children lost, murdered. What a Shame! RiP little ones. Mom has no brain……. Probably drugs. A lot of people would have loved them, as in adoption.
