Father, Grandmother Say System Failed To Protect Baby From Mother

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – A father and grandmother say they tried to protect a 7-month-old baby from the child’s mother, but the system failed them.

Sharrieckia Page, 22, is the child’s mother. Commerce City police accuse her of child abuse resulting in death even though the family says police haven’t found the body yet.

The child’s father, Torrey Brown Sr., and grandmother, Corinthian Brown, say they’ve been told detectives have been searching in and around the Arapahoe County area for the baby boy’s body. They say it all could have been prevented.

“Was he in pain? Was he in pain? That’s what I think of when I look at his footprints,” Corinthian Brown said.

Corinthian Brown said she was very concerned about baby Torrey’s welfare. She called Child Protective Services on Page. She said last November she told case workers about threatening comments that Page made about the baby.

“‘If somebody doesn’t come help me,’ … she said she was going to hurt him,” Corinthian Brown said.

Torrey Brown Sr. said he got the calls as well.

“Just a bunch of crazy stuff, and, ‘Don’t get mad if pretty much he ends up in a casket,’ ” Torrey Brown Sr. said Page told him.

The Browns said they offered to help Page and take all three of her children, but the young mother wouldn’t let them.

The Browns said when they saw detectives searching through dumpsters outside of Page’s apartment they new those threats became reality.

Torrey Brown Sr. said he also received a disturbing phone call from Page on Monday night from jail.

“She said, ‘This is what you wanted, right?’ And, ‘Are you happy?’ And then just hung up on me,” he said. “It showed that she’s not even feeling remorseful about it.”

    Why did she have the baby if she threatened to hurt it, why didn’t the family take the baby? There must be more to this story. Poor kid.
