Woman Sues State For Daughter's Murder


Samantha Deal

Serenity's father Sean Devon Brooks

An Oklahoma woman is suing the state for the death her 5-year-old daughter, whose father beat her to death in June 2011.

Samantha Deal, 22, lost custody of her daughter, Serenity, after being charged with molesting a 10-year-old male relative, News 9 reports. Deal ultimately pleaded no contest to a charge of forcible oral sodomy on a child.

Serenity was first placed with her maternal grandparents, Annette and Chuck Deal, who wished to adopt her, according to an official report by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.

Serenity was removed from the home, however, after social workers found that her grandparents were allowing her to have overnight unsupervised visits with her mother and her mother's boyfriend, who was a registered sex offender. The grandparents' lawyer said they were never informed that such visits were prohibited, according to the Oklahoman.

Serenity was placed with her father, 32-year-old Sean Devon Brooks, in May 2011. Less than a month later, she was found beaten to death in his apartment.

Brooks ultimately pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, KFOR reports, and he is now serving a life sentence.

Samantha Deal blames the Oklahoma Department of Human Services for placing Serenity with Brooks in the first place. On two occasions the previous January, OKDHS received reports that Serenity had returned bruised from visits with Brooks, once with "extensive bruising to her face." On that occasion, both Serenity and Brooks insisted that Brooks had accidentally dropped her on her head.

Serenity also reportedly told social workers that her father screamed at her, spanked her, and forced her to ride in the car with no seatbelt.

Now, Samantha Deal is suing the DHS. Her lawyers say that in addition to ignoring previous signs of abuse, the DHS failed to properly check Brooks' criminal background. If they had, the Daily Mail reports, they would have found a history of violence.

On June 4, Deal filed a $3 million claim, according to the Associated Press, requesting $1 million for herself and $1 million each for her two living daughters. The whereabouts of these two daughters are unclear.

FYI... the mother is doing 15 years for her shenanigans...

Let me get this straight... Mother: convicted child molester. Mother's boyfriend: registered sex offender. Father: child abuser with a history of violence.

Jeez... that kid couldn't catch a break.

And here's another case where the DHS social workers were damned no matter what direction they went in... Mother is a child molesting, coal burning looney toon who is dating Uncle Paul. Father is typical animalistic schvoogie savage. And doG forbid they pull the kid out of the nightmare and place her in foster care... then the Kirktards of the world would start in with their "Child-snatching government Nazis!" blabberings.

A shit situation from every angle.

At least Boober didn't didn't get shot in the nuts again.
At least the father has a parole hearing in.... 2049.... the mother has to wait until 2024... I am curious what their previous charges were...

Actually, putting her in foster care with a family that doesn't have a history of crime and child abuse, or placing her in an orphanage would've both been perfectly reasonable choices.

The one they went with wasn't, and they should be held responsible for it. They of course won't be, but they should be.

Never would've happened if her Uncle Mal had custody.

Such a shame. "Serenity" wouldn't have even had to change her name when she started stripping. ;)

So 16 or so year old white fuck-up screws a 26yr old black loser and gets teen pregnant. She then turns around and blows a 10 yr old male relative and hooks up with a sexual pervert. The grandparents who fucked up raising the original embarrassment then stupidly let the kid go hang with the reason for all the kid's problems. So the state figures they may as well give the dad a shot and the mom's blaming CPS for the kid dying?

Newsflash dumb cunt: Your kid was guaranteed an early death due to your own failure as a mom. The only question was who'd be the one to kill her. If it wasn't the abusive guy you probably fucked for drugs as a teen then you'd probably find some other way to end her.

The people I feel sorry for in this story is either dead(Serenity) or kept anonymous (10yr old victim). The mother deserves nothing for herself.
