We only become somebody if we have a family to define us. Even when you don’t have riches based on how much property that you own, being part of the family makes us rich.
You can only get the help that you needed if you can identify yourself with a family. A family member will always be there to help you get out of your troubles and always willing to lend a helping hand. AN intuitive mother, who had to deal with her daughter’s unspeakable plot, came out to exercise her ability as a grandmother to rescue her innocent 11-week-old granddaughter.
19-year-old Sarai Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother from Fort Wayne, Indiana, is a loving family woman who always welcomes her family needs. It happened somewhere in January 2017 that Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother welcomed her son, his fiancé, and their daughter (her granddaughter) to take refuge in her home.
As mentioned earlier that Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother is a welcoming woman, she allowed her son plus the extended family to stay with her for long as was never expected. Rodriguez-Miranda carries great hatred against her brother as well as his family as a result of their presence there which probably was her mother’s choice.
Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother, using her maternal instinct, discovered that something was cooking behind the curtains. She sensed that there was something not right that was going on in her home. Using her wisdom as an elderly person, she started to investigate the matter. She started by going through the text messages in her daughter’s cell phone. She was greatly shocked beyond words at what she discovered!
Rodriguez-Miranda had been communicating with her fiancé about her plot to poison and probably to end the life of her 11-weeks-old niece! She went through many more texts and fund ominous messages that Rodriguez-Miranda had sent to her boyfriend. One of them read, “Why didn’t that kid pass on dude? That’s dumb… they didn’t use it.”
The mother was shaking and horrified to find many more messages describing the attempt to take the life of an innocent kid from her daughter. She didn’t believe and had never imagined that from her daughter, the child that she brought up herself! “… tbh I hope she passes on… I don’t have anything to lose about it…” she wrote in the text message.
Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother didn’t just end with the text messages. She continued to find more clue on how it would be carried out, and that was just her lucky day to save a life. She came across a photo of a mortar and a pestle that had some leftover of white substance. She took the screenshot of the text messages as well as the photos before heading to her refrigerator to begin her rescue plan and bring the culprit to justice.
The fridge had two breastmilk for the granddaughter. They were kept in two separate bottles: a short one and a tall one. On close examination, she realized that the content of taller bottle was a bit darker. Additionally, it had deposits of circular, greenish-colored tinge. What could that be?
On January 12th, 2017, Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother took the little kid to the hospital for medical checkup. The results revealed that the 11-weeks-old baby was healthy and had no chemical traces in the body. After ensuring that the baby was safe, she handed the evidence that she had gathered to the police.
Toxicology analysis which was done on the mortar and pestle showed that they were used to grind nine Excedrin pills, which Rodriguez-Miranda had added to the milk in the tall bottle. Such quantity of the chemical is enough to poison a full-grown adult and confirmed that Rodriguez-Miranda attempted murder. She wanted to end the life of her 11-weeks-old niece!
After her murder plan in the dark has been brought to light, Rodriguez-Miranda disappeared and could not be found by the police for about a year. She was later found in Bay City, Michigan, on September 28th, 2017, and charged with the attempted murder.
It is a story that can all be described as a tragedy where a grandmother was relentless in saving the life of her 11-weeks-old granddaughter even if it meant that her daughter goes to prison. She emerged as a hero in the story after saving the life of a person who was not even in a position to ask for help.
