A mother in North Carolina named Jeanie Ditty and her boyfriend Zachary Keefer might be two of the worst humans on the planet.
On Dec. 2, Ditty’s two-year-old daughter Macy Grace was rushed to the hospital. She was unresponsive and had bruises all over her body. Police noted the bruises were consistent with child abuse, but they waited until hearing the official ruling from the medical examiner before pointing any fingers.
And while they waited, Ditty was basking in her daughter’s death. The active-duty soldier at Fort Bragg requested the services of Sunny Jo, a photographer who specializes in “photoshopped portraits with deceased family members.”
Ditty lied to the photographer and told him her daughter had choked to death on a banana. He felt so bad for Ditty that he agreed to do $500 worth of work for free.
It’s a move he regrets now that Ditty and her boyfriend are being charged with the murder of Macy Grace. The medical examiner working the case ruled her death a homicide. Both Ditty and Keefer are being charged with first-degree murder and negligent child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury.
Meanwhile, Sunny Jo is having to respond to dozens of hateful messages from people who believe he is somehow connected to the tragic death.
“I called the detective in charge of the situation, and I find out that she wanted these photos just to lie to the public, to cover up what she did so she can look like the grieving mother.”
Ditty and Keefer are being held without bail.
