A Texas mom has been arrested on accusations that she put her own two-year-old daughter in an oven. Fox News 25 reports that the child was fortunate to survive the incident, but now 35-year-old Tasha Hatcher could face serious punishment. This case is absolutely bizarre, but this is not the first time a child has been cooked by a caregiver.

Hatcher was arrested on Thursday after she reportedly notified the police of her actions. She confessed that she had put the two-year-old girl in the oven and turned it on, which caused the child to suffer second and third-degree burns on her body. Authorities say that the child is recovering at the Parkland Hospital in Dallas. She has been removed from the custody of her mother, and placed in to the care of Child Protective Services -- and for damned good reason. Tasha Hatcher and other members of her family have been barred from having contact with the injured toddler. This detail creates more questions in a case that is already confusing as it is.

Those who are acquainted with the Texas mom say that she seems to be a "loving parent." Her friends have reacted with shock at the allegations she has admitted to committing. So what drove her to putting her child in the oven? Was she under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol? Or was she under some kind of delusional breakdown?

This election cycle has been the absolute most bizarre spectacle I've ever witnessed in my 32 years on this earth -- and I've lived through Ross Perot's attempts at running for POTUS. What makes this 2016 race for the White House most bizarre is the presence of none other than Donald Trump -- The Donald, icon of 1980's Reaganomics, former hubby of Ivana Trump, former host of a ridiculously popular reality show on NBC, etc., etc., etc., and so forth. He's become one of the most widely watched (both loved and hated) candidates over the past few months, and with every inch of publicity he gets while running for President of the United States, his comments get more and more outrageous. Most recently, he publicly insinuated that he has a large penis during a live Republican presidential debate.

Authorities in Alabama haven't been able to locate Brooke Bridges over the course of the past month, which troubles me. The 16-year-old girl was last seen on Feb. 7 in the home she shares with her family, but seemed to vanish from the residence sometime in the middle of that night.

When her parents found that she was missing from their home, they also found that the front door of the residence had been left opened. This detail has added further distress to Brooke's parents, who don't know what to think about her disappearance. She has no reported history of running away, which is another detail of interest. However, it should be noted that there is always a first time in any case of a teenager running away. While no prior history of running off is indeed something to worry about in a disappearance like this, it's important to keep in mind that there are still very few details in this case -- not enough on which to draw a conclusion.
