Stepfather of the year award goes to 24 year old Darlanne Toussaint who compassionately tackled the issue of his girlfriend's 17 month old boy's persistent crying not by a sippie cup and some rocking or checking for dirty diapers but rather by the fool-proof and ever effective method of ceaselessly shaking him, punching him, throwing hot cooking oil on him then subjecting him to further minutes of a blow dryer on high at close range in order to burn his skin off.
Oddly enough the innovative nurturing techniques proved less than effective. The child now rests in stable condition in a Florida hospital on heavy doses of pain medication and reportedly still cries when conscious.
