Toddler ‘murdered’ by drug addict dad with tattoo of her name on his head was ‘scared of living with him’


- Advertisment -

A TODDLER who was allegedly killed by her father, who had her name tattooed on his forehead, reportedly told relatives she didn’t want to live with him.

Little Olivia Jansen, a three-year-old from Kansas City, Kansas, was found dead in a wooded area on Friday, about nine hours after her father, Howard Jansen III, reported her missing to the police.

Jansen and his fiancée, Jacqulyn Kirkpatrick, were arrested on suspicion of being involved in the child’s death.

Olivia’s grandmother, Elizabeth Jansen, said the child would often grow distressed whenever she needed to return home to her father’s house, according to Metro.

“She was always so unhappy to go home,” she said. “She would frown and say, ‘You love me? You’re not mad at me? I come back? I come back?’ And I told her, ‘I will hurt anyone who keeps you away from me.’”

Elizabeth and her husband Howard Jansen II said they attempted to contact authorities when they became worried about Olivia’s well-being, according to KSHB. They described their son and his fiancée as drug addicts.

They said they called Kansas City police and eventually the Kansas Department for Children and Families, better known as DCF.

The concern was sparked by a June 19 post from Kirkpatrick, where the 33-year-old threatened to kill herself.

Elizabeth said authorities didn’t do much to help her granddaughter, who she hadn’t seen since March.

“I said, ‘This woman is taking care of my grandchild,’ and I said, ‘She has put on Facebook that she wants to end her life. And I said, ‘I haven’t seen the child for months so I’m scared. I don’t know what to do.’”

Police records show that officers responded to the home where little Olivia lived with her dad on the day her grandmother called for a suicide investigation.

It was one of six calls to that house since the beginning of 2020, according to Fox 4.

Olivia’s father first told police that his daughter was missing when he woke up on Friday morning. However, he was arrested, along with his fiancée, shortly after the child’s body was found on Friday evening.

They have been charged with a handful of crimes including first-degree murder, according to Fox 4.
